Red Sox Off To Nice Start After Long Awaited Season Opener

After a relatively mild Spring Training session that saw the improvement of many young players including rookie starter Jackie Bradley Jr., the Red Sox took to the field in New York for their first 2013 regular season game. The aforementioned Jackie Bradley Jr. made his MLB debut and along with a few walks collected his first big league RBI. The Red Sox dethroned the proud Yankees who rarely lose any season-opener at home. Jon Lester picked up the Win after surrendering only a few runs in 5 innings of work. Joel Hanrahan held the Yankees down to secure the victory during his own Red Sox debut. His outing was particularly impressive as he hit 99, then 97+ with his fastball as well as unleashing a nasty, unhittable slider. Needless to say the Yankees were toast as his pitches went by their batters in the bottom of the ninth. Before an emptied out Yankee stadium, Will Middlebrooks made an excellent running catch to squeeze the game closed after the last batter popped out in foul territory! Final Score 8-2 Red Sox!!!!The Red Sox clubhouse was ecstatic and all smiles as many players embraced each other knowing that this season was already off to a better start after all the tumutuous events of last year! That is the beauty of baseball…. however lousy things get…. there is always that hope of the Next Spring and the chance to make up for past failures. The Beantown team did just that and Red Sox Nation was buzzing with delight!!! read more
