Ramirez homers in victorious return to Red Sox lineup

15 April 2018

He is 1-0 through the three starts while Boston is 1-2. "We're proud of what they're doing".

The Orioles have hit 10 home runs in their last 10 games. "We're risky", Benintendi said.

Making his Orioles debut, Cobb was roughed up for eight runs - seven earned - in 3 2/3 innings.

Cobb (0-1), a MA native who spent his first six major league seasons with Tampa Bay before signing with Baltimore, struggled mightily in a park in which he has fared well historically.

"Just a little rusty", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "Physically, he's in good shape". He's only going to get better.

It's the 12th victory in 14 tries for the Red Sox, with only the 1918 team previously in position to do the same. "There is no replicating this". Sale can count on his lineup to find ways to score most nights and if they can't hit against Bundy, they will get to the bullpen late in the game. Hector Velazquez got the win, improving to 2-0 after giving up just two runs on six hits while striking out five over five innings of work, while Marcus Walden recorded his first save of the year with three innings of relief from the 7th to the 9th to close out the win.

"How on Earth will the Boston Red Sox match the New York Yankees' one-two punch of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton?"

After walking to lead off the bottom of the first, Betts rounded the bases following a double from Andrew Benintendi.

Then Ramirez stepped up and jacked a hanging slider over the Green Monster for a no-doubter.

Here's the insane thing about Good Hanley - 497 plate appearances can't arrive quickly enough. Benintendi hit his two-run single. An eighth run - albeit unearned - would be charged to Cobb when a Manny Machado throwing error scored Ramirez again with Miguel Castro on the mound.

Orioles: 2B Jonathan Schoop was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right oblique. The Red Sox later revealed that Betts only suffered a bruised left foot on the play. He came out a few innings later. X-rays on the foot were negative.

Jackie Bradley Jr. usually is Boston's center fielder. He initially stayed in the game and had another at-bat in the second inning, but was replaced by Blake Swihart before the top of the fourth. "I still remember, I saw him in that clinic in Miami and he was doing his rehab and the first thing he said was, 'You don't have to worry about me". Babe Ruth had served as the Red Sox starting pitcher the previous afternoon, also adding a double and two runs scored in an 8-1 triumph.

"They've been playing good baseball for a while", Cora said. Chris Sale has dominated in his three starts this season, conceding only two runs in his 17 innings logged, and he features a dazzling 2.88 ERA career ERA against the Orioles.

But his first start was hardly the outing he or the club were looking for. Martinez off with a curveball inside for a ball, then threw another that hung over the plate and Martinez sent the opposite was into the Red Sox bullpen in right-field.
