For Red Sox, architect's blueprint leads to a record-setting start

Boston Red Sox outfielder J.D. Martinez

Despite some injuries to contend with to begin the season, Sox starters have rolled through opposing lineups.

The Angels have been outscored 19-1 through the first two games of the series.

Martinez laced a 73-mph curve to center for a single to load the bases, as the "Let's Go Red Sox!" chants, a staple in Angel Stadium when Boston is in town, grew in volume and clarity. They are now a MLB-best 16-2.

"The runs they are putting up, we're just going out there and attacking the strike zone and get outs and chew up as much of the game as possible". He enters the series tied with Betts and two others for the American League lead in home runs with six, while leading the league by himself in hits with 28 and RBIs with 21.

Tyler Skaggs (2-1) gave up six runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings for the Angels, who have lost two straight following a seven-game winning streak.

Tropeano couldn't get out of the sixth, Angels manager Mike Scioscia taking out the right-hander with one on and one out.

But Benintendi hit his first homer of the season and Devers added an RBI single in the sixth.

This marks the eighth time Martinez is getting the start in the outfield, having served as designated hitter in nine games.

Plate umpire Jerry Layne left in the bottom of the first inning after a foul ball from Trout hit him on the right elbow.

The Boston Red Sox are coming off a successful series against the Angels in L.A. and will stay out west when they open a new series against the Oakland A's. The left-hander strained his forearm in his first start of spring training, but has made two rehab starts in the minors to prepare for the beginning of his second full season with Boston. He's expected to take the mound Tuesday in a tough spot at Houston, but the Angels will likely keep a close eye on their prized offseason acquisition as blisters can easily cause a pitcher to miss several starts throughout the season.
