Nathan Eovaldi seems to shine most when the lights are the brightest, which is why he’ll be on the mound Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
And when he gets the ball, he’ll have an admirer not far away in Gerrit Cole.
But that is far more the exception than the rule, as the hard-throwing hurler has proven multiple times this season and throughout his career that when he’s on, he can be near-impossible to hit. And Eovaldi’s showing in Game 3 of the 2018 World Series is indication enough that he’s ready for anything the postseason throws at him.
Cole knows that.
“Nate’s got some magic, man. He is a high-stakes performer,” Cole said Monday, via MLB.com’s Ian Browne.
