He gave up two walks with one out in the fifth, but again kept Tampa Bay off the scoreboard.

There with the bases loaded in the twelfth, Ramirez would win the game for the Red Sox.

David Price got a chance to walk off the Fenway Park mound in style Thursday. They have been drawn-out ceremonies with numerous guest appearances that, intentionally or not, often outshine the actual game. Salem will start the season with three of the top 10 pitching prospects in the Red Sox organization.

Benintendi reached base twice in the opener, with a walk and a single.

Boston Red Sox designated hitter Hanley Ramirez was the hero in their season opener. They came running out of the dugout to celebrate, and Ramirez fled into the outfield with his teammates in pursuit.

Whereas some of Farrell's decisions - and sometimes awkward defense of them - created a bit of tension, Cora acknowledged some early Red Sox flaws following Tuesday's 4-2, 13-inning victory against Miami.

Tampa Bay took a 2-0 lead in the eighth when Matt Duffy swatted a two-run homer off Carson Smith.

Menendez brothers reunite almost 30 years after killing parents
Corrections department spokeswoman Terry Thornton said she doesn't know how the brothers reacted during their reunion. Hard to believe, but's been nearly 30 years since murdered their mother and father in Beverly Hills.

Colome picked up two outs when J.D. Martinez to hit a grounder to short that Adeiny Hechavarria turned into a double play, but there was more drama to come.

Cora added he's not going to get caught up with anything as manager of the Red Sox and the people he surrounds himself with help. "I think it was the coldest I've ever played in my life".

Something tells us in a few weeks going to Target and not getting recognized will be a thing of the past. We played very well. In the second game, he doubled his output, with two walks and two hits. They have not committed an error through seven games. Pitches down and away are finding Hanley's bat at an alarming rate, and he is turning them into hits like the game victor today. In years past they would've been lucky to squeeze eight innings into that timeframe. A clean slate was desperately needed in 2018, one that seems to have been provided throughout spring training and in a six-game road trip that stopped in Tampa Bay and Miami. But there's nothing to complain about right now.

"We played the Astros the other day in spring training, and players are telling you he's a smart guy", said Bogaerts, who solicited first-hand information from the club where Cora served as bench coach for A.J. Hinch and won the World Series last season. Price's well-documented spat a year ago with team broadcaster and Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley certainly damaged his likeability. Price has started off his 2018 campaign with 14 straight scoreless innings. For the second consecutive start, David Price blanked the Rays for seven innings and became the first Red Sox pitcher since Mel Parnell in 1949 to spin at least seven scoreless innings in consecutive starts to open a season. The 6-foot-4 third baseman looks to bring the power at the plate, where he hit 13 home runs with Greenville last season.

"First full season, there's definitely some hype for me getting into it", said Houck, who made his pro debut at short-season Lowell past year. "We just have to concentrate on the future, and the future started in Fort Myers at that meeting". When he's healthy I think he's one of the best pitchers in the Majors.

Price left the game to a standing ovation after the seventh.

"I just want to drive in as many runs as I can and produce as much as I can all year", Dalbec said. "At one point in the game, I looked up, I want to say in the third inning, and he was at 45".

He will face a "bullpen game" for the Rays, who have pushed Chris Archer back to Monday and will go with a group effort in the first and third games of this three-game series. If I had been sure of it, I would have tipped my cap.
