Red Sox reliever Brian Johnson will get the chance to face Mike Zunino next inning. The two were three-year teammates at the University of Florida and first-round picks in 2012. During BP, Zunino came over and gave Johnson a big embrace and the two chatted for a bit. He's 0-for-3 with two K's against Johnson.

Have a night, Nelson Cruz: he crushes another knuckleball from Steven Wright that didn't knuckle and belts his second three-run homer of the game. He's 3-for-3 with seven RBIs and has his second multi-homer game of 2018. The Mariners lead 10-5 and Wright is out of the game.

Odubel Herrera is blue-hot. The Phillies centerfielder belted a two-run homer off Nats starter Tanner Roark. It's Herrera's fifth straight game with a bomb. In those five games, he's hitting .579 (11-for-19).

Just like that, the Red Sox erase the 4-0 deficit. Last weekend at Safeco Field, Wade LeBlanc held the Red Sox scoreless for 7.2 innings and retired 22 straight at one point. Tonight, he was eight pitches in and the first four batters had reached with hits. With two outs, Christian Vazquez doubles into the triangle and the Red Sox lead 5-4. It's old-school Fenway Park baseball.

Coming off a three-game sweep at Yankee Stadium, this series at Fenway shapes up an important one for the Mariners as they get tested against the AL's best. Nelson Cruz gives them a first-inning lead with a three-run homer over the Green Monster off knuckleballer Steven Wright and Ryon Healy then crushes his first pitch for another homer. Red Sox fans still waiting in line for a Fenway Frank will find their team down 4-0 before finding their seats.

So there's a DJ in the Nats clubhouse today. Not clubhouse DJ Gio Gonazalez, but, like, a real DJ. With turntables, giant speakers, and everything. Because Davey Martinez.
