He sat down with Betts this spring and showed the All-Star outfielder how effective he can be when he does.
"He was excellent", Cora said. "He's going to make contact". (1996) as the only players to have four hits, five runs and four RBIs in a game against the Yankees. He fanned eight, walked none and allowed the homer plus seven harmless hits to finally register his first win of the season.
He said the run support helped him settle in.
"He's handling it with you well, in terms of how he's addressing it with the press", Cashman said to reporters just outside the visitors dugout at Fenway Park. "You'll recognize pitches, you'll attack mistakes".
Boston's starting pitchers improved to 6-0 on the season on a night in which the temperature dipped into the 30s.

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton went 2 for 4.
"We're getting better, staying away from strikes on the edges", he said. Whether it was when he first got here and had the successful first game of the season and the struggles since, he's still - at least my sense from what I'm watching and reading - is that he knows there's a job to do before the game and after the game, as well as during the game, regardless how he performs. "I need to maybe go to the bullpen or see video, and see what's going on". He entered Tuesday's game 4-for-39 (.103) with 21 strikeouts and one home run over the nine games since Opening Day.
This is not the first time it has been suggested that Severino was tipping his pitches. The Red Sox proceeded to bat around, with Mookie Betts ripping an RBI double into the corner in left and J.D. Martinez pouncing on a fat splitter down the middle to drive one into the bleachers in center.
