BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox lead all of baseball with 59 wins, and they've won 10 of 13 with yesterday's sweep-clinching three-nothing shutout of the Nationals. Jackie Bradley Jr., Christian Vazquez, and manager Alex Cora weighed in on the team's success.

"Team is 30 games over, that's amazing, great accomplishment so far, but we don't care about that right now," Bradley said. "We just want to take it one game at a time, win today, and think about winning today the next day, and we'll see what happens at the end."

Bradley's hitting just .202 this season, but he drove in a pair of runs in the Red Sox' 3-nothing shutout of the Nationals yesterday.

"We feel good, we're playing good ball, and having fun, that's the key," Vazquez said

"I'm proud of them," Cora said. "They show up, they prepare, they go about their business the right way. They're enjoying winning, and they don't get caught up in whatever's going on around us. They're very focused on the task at hand. We know where we're at, but we still have a long ways to go."

The Sox are off today. They'll open a three-game set in Kansas City tomorrow against the last-place Royals. Chris Sale will get the start. He hasn't allowed a run his last 15 innings - tied for the sixth-longest active streak in the majors.
