Boston Red Sox Baltimore Orioles Spring Training: Nathan Eovaldi cruises in the win

The Red Sox are playing some good baseball as they head into the regular season, which we all know always carries over. They got great pitching against the Orioles on Wednesday, and one two-run homer was enough for a quick 2-0 victory https://www.baseballstoreonline.com/...Rodriguez-2136. Here are the notes from the day:Nathan Eovaldi cruisesThe numbers for Nathan Eovaldi heading into this start were rough, as over his first three starts of the spring he had allowed nine runs over eight innings of work on 15 hits and one walk with eight strikeouts. For whatever it may be worth,I think those numbers are a little worse than he actually looked, and the one walk was nice to see, but there also no doubt he hadn really gotten a clean outing in yet. Wednesday evening was his last chance at something close to a full outing he probably go out for one more start Hudson Potts Shower Curtain, but it be a short one so he was looking for something easy.Look no further, Nate. Eovaldi was as sharp as we seen him all spring, with all of his pitches seeming to work and the command being there pretty much all night. The zone was a little small in the first which seemed to frustrate him a bit, but he still only had to face three batters in the inning. Ultimately, the zone would expand for both sides as the game progressed, and Eovaldi ended up pitching into the sixth. In all, he go 52 innings without a run crossing the plate, giving up just a pair of singles and a walk while striking out three. Eovaldi is going to be one of the most important pieces for the Red Sox this season as they look for their rotation to just keep their head above water and let the offense win them as many games as possible. Eduardo Rodriguez looks good at the top of the rotation, but they really need someone to step up behind him. Eovaldi looks like he start the second game of the year, and if he pitches like he did tonight he be that guy.Another homer for Hunter Renfroe The bottom portion of the Red Sox lineup is going to be super interesting this year in that there are going to be a whole lot of strikeouts https://www.baseballstoreonline.com/Bobby_Doerr-224, but also a whole lot of power potential. Renfroe is going to be part of that, and we seen the power on display throughout this spring. It was there again on Wednesday, as he was responsible for all the offense in the game. He came up in the third with a man on and a 2-0 count, where Orioles starter Dean Kremer tried to get a breaking ball by him. Renfroe went down and got it on the outer portion of the plate, blasting a shot out to right field for the opposite field, two-run homer.The home run was his third of the spring, and all three of them have showed off the easy power. There are certainly going to be contact issues here, but when he gets ahold of the baseball it will have a tendency to go a long way https://www.baseballstoreonline.com/Franchy_Cordero-240. The Red Sox won be looking for a star turn from Renfroe though they certainly take it if it comes but rather they be hoping for league-average production that is heavy on the power, driving in the more complete hitters who will be in front of him in the lineup. Renfroe also added a single on the day and has an .809 OPS on the spring.Other NotesAlso getting a pair of hits in this game was Alex Verdugo. He started in center field tonight with Renfroe in right, and he had two singles in his three plate appearances. It been a slow spring for Verdugo to this point after he got off to a little bit of a late start https://www.baseballstoreonline.com/Carlton_Fisk-227, but that not really a concern, especially as he been putting some better swings on the ball of late. He now has at least one hit in four straight games.
