Ramirez homers in victorious return to Red Sox lineup


The Red Sox are 11-2 SU and 5-7 ATS.

That question often was asked prior to the start of the regular season.

Hanley Ramirez launched a two-run homer and finished with three RBIs in his return to the lineup as the host Boston Red Sox spoiled Alex Cobb's debut with the Baltimore Orioles in a 10-3 rout Saturday afternoon. In addition to Ramirez, J.D. Martinez also launched his third homer of the year, an opposite-field shot into the Red Sox bullpen. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 6.3 units and are 5-6 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher.

Mom credited for change in child abuse case
The signs of child abuse aren't always visible, but a public display is hoping to draw more attention to the problem. In other cases, however, the deaths are a result of "pure evil", a more hard problem to combat, he said.

The Red Sox are 12-2, their best-ever start through 14 games.

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).

And new manager Alex Cora isn't surprised. 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. We got a lot of sluggers in our lineup. "When he's locked in and when he's healthy a he's very risky".

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. But Hanley Ramirez has led the Red Sox to the best start in franchise history. Cora said of an offseason visit to Ramirez. "Playing clean and fast, and pitching".

"Right now, it's been good baseball for a while. Right now we are doing everything right and having fun".

Betts' leg bent awkwardly as the All-Star outfielder slid into Orioles catcher Chance Sisco while attempting to avoid a tag in the bottom of the first inning. The Red Sox later revealed that Betts only suffered a bruised left foot on the play. "The X-rays were negative - contusion in the foot".

For Ramirez, the biggest key to his strong start at the plate lies in his offseason surgery a which allowed him to free up his swing and not worry about the lingering discomfort that hampered him for most of 2017. Betts returned to the game but was in visible pain and left in the top of the fourth inning. The over has hit in two of those games, compared to seven that've gone under in such games. Playing time has been hard to come by for Swihart, but Cora was happy to get him into the game. "It's tough to get him at-bats", Cora said. Machado is slashing.316/.409/.544 with 18 hits, eight RBIs and six runs scored, while Alvarez (.250/.444/.500) is up to five hits, five RBIs and four runs scored. The start will come during the upcoming road trip, either at the end of the team's series with the Los Angeles Angels or to open its series with the Oakland Athletics.
