The Boston Red Sox‘s impressive season turnaround continues.
After beating the Los Angeles Angels yet again on Wednesday, they reached seven wins in a row and eight in his last 10 games.
Their record now stands at 30-27 before Thursday’s action, pretty incredible considering how bad they looked in April and part of May.
They owe a lot of that success to three specific pitchers: Nate Eovaldi, Nick Pivetta, and Michael Wacha.
You could say that all three hurlers were at a career crossroads when the Red Sox acquired them at different points in the last few years.
But the organization has shown they can coach and develop excellent pitchers, and they are currently reaping the benefits.
“Nathan Eovaldi, Nick Pivetta, and Michael Wacha have allowed 0 ER in their last 33.2 IP. In their last 7 starts combined, they are 6-1 with a 0.57 ERA (47.2 IP, 3 ER),” JP Long, known as @SoxNotes on Twitter, wrote.

An Outstanding Trio
When you get 33.2 scoreless innings from your starters, you have a lot of margin for error.
You only need one run in a specific game to take home the victory.
That’s some amazing pitching right there; and while it may not be wise to expect the three to remain scoreless for the rest of the season, it has to be refreshing for Boston to know they have three workhorses to lead their rotation.
Pivetta has a solid 3.50 ERA; Wacha is at an elite 1.99, and Eovaldi has posted a 3.16 mark.
Other starters, such as Rich Hill and Garrett Whitlock, have been serviceable, too.
No wonder the Red Sox are winning so many games.
As long as that trio remains dominant, they will have a good chance at eventually securing a playoff berth.NEXT: Red Sox Rotation Leading MLB In A Dominant Category
