Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles

Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts was forced to leave Saturday's home game against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park after suffering a foot injury. Alex Cobb took the loss, falling to 0-1 after giving up eight runs, seven earned, on ten hits in just 3.2 innings of work. The right-handed Cobb started 29 games previous year and finished the season 12-10 overall with a 3.66 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. He needed shoulder surgery in October and it was uncertain if he would even get regular playing time.

No Red Sox team has ever been better through the first 14 games of the season. "I called (Ramirez Friday) morning". This time Hector Velazquez took the mound and fired five innings of two-run ball after spending the last 10 days in the bullpen.

The addition of J.D. Martinez might have helped alleviate some of Boston's offensive woes, but Cora wasn't dwelling too much on Ramirez's expected production a or lack thereof a at the plate.

Red Sox fans need no reminder of the two Hanley Ramirezes.

Bettors can also wager on the game's runline with the odds standing at -145 for the Orioles +1.5 runs and +125 for the Red Sox -1.5.

The new manager of the Boston Red Sox, the onus was on Cora and his coaching staff to parse through what went wrong for the 2017 ballclub a and how they might remedy any shortcomings ahead of the new season. But Dombrowski signed only Mitch Moreland until spring training, then added J.D. Martinez in February.

"You know when you visit someone and they're confident and they tell you things you want to hear?" "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". Out of all the guys, for whatever reason, he was locked in and he was the guy we were really paying attention to because he was hitting line drives all over the place. Sale was stellar in his latest effort, limiting the tough Yankees lineup to only one run in six strong innings, leading to his first win of the season. "When he's locked in and when he's healthy a he's very risky". Cobb left a hanging breaking ball up and Martinez flicked it into the Sox bullpen. Benintendi's two-run single to center, an RBI double to left by Ramirez and a second Manny Machado error of the day at short made the rest of this one all but academic. "This is the best team in the world hitting right now, and you're never going to get ready for that".

The Orioles offense has slashed.220/.294/.345 on its way to 3.4 runs scored per game this year, including 4.1 runs per game against divisional foes and 3.6 per game over the team's last five outings (2-3 SU).

Brock Holt and Tzu-Wei Lin each added two hits from the bottom two spots in the order.
