The Angels entered this series with seven consecutive wins, then the Red Sox came into their place and outscored them 19-1 in the first two games. Boston is now the first team since the 2003 Giants to start a season 15-2. They lead the Majors in runs per game, starting pitcher ERA, winning percentage and run differential. Probably a lot of other stuff, too.

Great win for the Twins to take the second game in Puerto Rico with a 2-1 victory in 16 innings as Ryan LaMarre drove in Eddie Rosario with the walk-off base hit. Puerto Rico native Jose Berrios threw seven scoreless innings for the Twins, while the Indians can only kick themselves as they failed to get down three sacrifice bunt attempts and Jason Kipnis booted what should have been a double play in the 16th inning.

When this game started both Joe Mauer and Zach Duke were 34-years-old... it's officially both of their birthdays! They were both born on April 19th, 1983.

Man, watching the Astros in person is remarkable. They do everything well & difficult to imagine a 25 man roster better on the planet

The Red Sox entered tonight second in the Majors in runs per game (5.88) and first in the Majors in OPS (.830). On Tuesday, Shohei Ohtani needed 66 pitches to record six out against them. On Wednesday, Tyler Skaggs recorded his seventh out on his 60th pitch.

Albert Pujols lined a sharp single to center field in the first inning, giving him 2,990 career hits. Ten more and he'll join Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the only players to combine 600 homers with 3,000 hits.

Indians hitting coach Víctor Rodríguez, who was born and raised in Puerto Rico, has great memories of playing at Hiram Bithorn Stadium. Rodríguez was Puerto Rican winter ball batting champion in 1986-87 (.377 AVG)

Put away those brooms, Nationals fans. In danger of being swept, the Mets had an inning to remember, scoring nine runs in the eighth to turn a 4-2 deficit into an 11-4 lead. Juan Lagares had the go-ahead double with two outs and Yoenis Cespedes capped it off with a grand slam.

Francisco Lindor, who's 0-for-3 vs fellow Puerto Rican José Berríos tonight, watching him closely from the dugout.

Tough blow for Taijuan Walker and the Diamondbacks as he'll undergo Tommy John surgery. The D-backs are off to a 12-4 start even though their top two starters, Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray, have ERAs over 5.00. The depth of the rotation will now be tested and you wonder if they'd consider signing knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who is still a free agent, and was a durable back-end starter last season for the Braves (190 innings, 4.26 ERA).

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he is "anticipating" Shohei Ohtani will make his next start, but wouldn't say when that is. As for hitting: "He'll be available to DH tomorrow."
