Finally, something the Red Sox can feel good about

"I mean, the guy who's supposed to hit the homers is not here anymore, Papi", Hanley Ramirez after the Red Sox' 8-1 win against the Baltimore Orioles last night.

Leading 2-0 in the seventh, Dustin Pedroia hit a 2-run single straight up the middle to put the Red Sox in control up 4-0.

Baltimore is 5-1 in Jimenez's last 6 division starts and 4-2 in their last 6 games overall while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 road games. I've kind of done it for my whole career, and I know how to handle a lot of that stuff.

Turns out, he's been good enough during a time in which the organization couldn't create more roster instability if they tried. That will be key for the middle-of-the-order guys to get back into the flow of things. Thus, the sicky-poo Red Sox. You'd expect to see Hyun-Soo Kim in that spot. His third hit unraveled the Orioles for good. The fielders collided and everybody was safe. Wright held the Tigers to just a single through five innings, but he ran into trouble in the seventh and was pulled. In six-plus innings he gave up just four hits, one run and struck out six Orioles batters in his first career Fenway Park victory. Already has. I think with a veteran player like him, really spring was about checking out his health and the rest of it will come.

Vazquez even stole a base, another sign that this powerless Sox team is being forced to find new ways to score.

"Our catchers are doing an outstanding job offensively and defensively", Farrell said. "Those are the things people grind through, and they do a great job of it". "We bunched a number of hits together late", Boston manager John Farrell aid. We found some holes.

North Korea calls US strikes on Syria 'unforgivable'
Pundits say Wu's visit is expected to provide a glimpse into China's future policy direction when it comes to North Korea. A senior administration official said Trump informed Xi about the strikes as their dinner concluded on Thursday night.


Three relievers worked an inning apiece behind Pomeranz.

"I felt like I waited forever to get that first start in", said Pomeranz, who opened the season on the DL with a strained left forearm. As for Buck Showalter, manager of the first-place Orioles, he's telling you this.

It was just one game and one start, but showed Pomeranz does have what it takes to pitch in the American League.

If you had told me before the season that the Boston Red Sox would be playing a game in 2017 with Chris Young as their designated hitter in the cleanup spot, I'd tell you they're in some serious trouble. That's the way he pitched in the National League.

Boston is and always has been a tough out at Fenway, and this game will be no different.
