Second shutout: As poorly as the Red Sox have pitched as a staff this season, Sunday marked the second shutout of 2019 and second in the last week. (The Sox also got a 1-0 win in Arizona a week ago in a bullpen game started by Hector Velazquez). This also marked the second quality start in the last three games for the Sox, so maybe there's hope yet for a rotation which began the year in such inauspicious fashion. A big improvement has been made when it comes to limiting the long ball.
