Alex Verdugo had a day Wednesday.
Because beyond getting on base, making the play or hitting it out of the park, Verdugo has been bringing the energy the Red Sox need.
“For me, I’ve always been a very emotional player so, you know, whether it’s good or bad I like to show some emotions,” Verdugo said. “I just naturally get fired up and I like to look in the dugout and see the boys riled up and fired up as well. I think we’re kind of constantly feeding off energy with all of us.”
He must be on to something, as the Red Sox now have won nine straight games after starting the season 0-3.
