Red Sox DH Ramirez exits with hamstring cramp

He lasted 5 2/3 innings, allowing a run in going to 2-0 on the young season (he was 9-19 last year). "It's just a fun group to be a part of". "It's been a smooth transition. It makes you feel more comfortable". Boston RF Mookie Betts was presented with his 2016 Silver Slugger, Gold Glove and Wilson Defensive Player of the Year awards in a pregame ceremony.

The move paid off as Peterson hit a 2-run homer in his first plate appearance to give the Rays a 2-0 lead.

"The only mistake was the first pitch", Ramirez said. "I'll be in there tomorrow".

The Sox scored three runs for him in his first two starts in 1998, then broke out in his third start, a 5-0 shutout of the Seattle Mariners in which he struck out 12 batters. Seung-Hwan Oh worked around an RBI double by pinch hitter Gregory Polanco in the ninth to record the Cardinals' first save of the season.

Boston Red Sox's Steven Wright pitches during the first inning of a baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, April 17, 2017, in Boston.

Steven Souza Jr. (2-for-4) drove in two runs and Brad Miller (1-for-4) added an RBI for Tampa Bay.

Rockies 5, Giants 0: Tyler Chatwood pitched 52/3 flawless innings and finished with a two-hitter for Colorado in his first big league shutout.

"I'm really smart for putting him in the lineup", manager Kevin Cash joked about Peterson.

Wright gave Wakefield's worst a run for its money on Wednesday, allowing four of the 13 Orioles he faced to hit a home run before he was pulled. Panda jumped a couple of times to celebrate with teammates on his way back to the dugout.

It was Kimbrel's fifth save of the season and third in as many days, as the hard-throwing right-hander became the first Red Sox pitcher to notch three saves in a single series since Mike Timlin in 2006.

"It was a weird one", Cobb said.

The team announced he was bothered by a left hamstring cramp. RHP Ben Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Chris Archer entered Friday night's start staring at a 11-game losing streak against the Red Sox. Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off his left ankle, limped around but stayed in the game. On April 9 in Detroit, for example, he gave up one run on one hit and two walks and needed to rely on every last ounce of his power fastball to strike out the side and nail down a 7-5 win.

Farrell thought the injury that led to Tampa starter Jake Odorizzi leaving the game in the second inning and the subsequent delay may have hurt Sale. He also had a wild pitch. The Rays dropped their fourth in five games.

"I think anything can be better than the last start. I just didn't have it today".

A brutal beat down at the hands of the Rays opened the series, dropping Boston to.500 on the season and a spot behind Tampa Bay.

Blake Snell takes the mound on Monday for the Rays, and the 24-year-old southpaw has had better luck of late than has Wright.
