Of Eduardo Rodriguez's seven strikeouts so far, none bigger than getting Jon Jay on dirt-diving changeup to get out of two-on, two-out spot in fourth inning. Rodriguez impressive to this point.

The Fenway scoreboard says exit velocity on Hanley Ramirez's two-run homer was 112 mph. Sounds about right. Second consecutive game that Ramirez crushes a homer to left field -- and flips his bat, stylishly.

Al Horford nearly had a triple-double with 21 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds, exposing the Wizards off several pick and rolls with Marcin Gortat trying to defend off the picks. Washington was also all out of sorts too many times, allowing Boston to drain 19 3-pointers. Wizards can live with Isaiah Thomas making five 3's but not Jae Crowder hitting six-of-eight from behind the arc.
