Final Score (L) : Sox 1 Orioles 2
In the first game of the season, tensions were mounting and expectations were high. All were looking to see if the Red Sox maintained that team and dynamic that won Boston its Championship last October.
Lester pitched a strong 7 innings, allowing only six hits and striking out 8. Napoli got his first 2B of the season and newbie, Grady Sizemore continued to stun us all by hitting his first HR in a Sox uniform in the 4th inning.
Although our boys got the loss, they are still the defending Champions – and one game doesn’t forecast the season!
