In 118 years, the Red Sox had never reached 10 games over.500 that soon.

The Orioles have gained 0.1 units and are 3-2 ATS when facing a lefty starter this season.

"I'm not saying that (Fenway Park) is an advantage for us, but we've got some guys that can drive the ball all over the place", Cora said. "We're proud of what they're doing".

"Our offense is doing what it's doing, and our pitching and our defense is consistent. We're risky", Benintendi said.

Alex Cobb allowed eight runs, seven earned, and 10 hits in 3⅔ innings.

When the Baltimore Orioles signed right-hander Alex Cob to a four-year, $57 million contract March 21, expectations were high. "Physically, he's in good shape".

One year after shoulder ailments sapped him of his power - "I hit basically hit 23 homers one-handed", he noted in spring training - Ramirez appears locked, loaded, and ready to do major damage as the No. 3 hitter on what is rapidly becoming one of baseball's best offenses. Sometimes we get caught up in the protection part of it, but obviously when J.D.'s swinging the bat, that's a good spot.

"We did all we could do", he said. New England Sports Network will showcase the matchup and the game will get going at 1:05 p.m. ET.

Hector Velazquez navigated through the first five innings to win it for the Red Sox, allowing only a two-run homer to Pedro Alvarez in the fifth.

- Red Sox reliever Marcus Walden pitched the final three innings to pick up his first career save.

Threat of US-Russia clash hangs over Syria
President Donald Trump also ordered strikes about the same time past year , also in response to reported chemical weapon usage. Anatoly Antonov, Russian ambassador to the U.S, issued a statement on Facebook in response to the strikes on Syria.

The Red Sox started fast as they've done frequently this season.

Behind Benintendi, Ramirez stepped up and jacked a hanging slider over the Green Monster for a no-doubter.

Martinez homered into Baltimore's bullpen in the third.

Here's the insane thing about Good Hanley - 497 plate appearances can't arrive quickly enough. Ramirez added an RBI double and scored on shortstop Manny Machando's throwing error — his second of the game.

"I think you look at it through realistic eyes", Showalter said.

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. He came out a few innings later.

Cobb faced a team that at 12-2 has the best record in the American League.

Ramirez missed the series-opening 7-3 win with a bruised right wrist after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game against the New York Yankees.

"He actually beat me to the ballpark". "It was a good sign". Mookie Betts is 6 for 22 with four RBI's against Bundy, while Hanley Ramirez is 4 for 18, and Jackie Bradley Jr.is 6 for 17. When Betts got hurt, he moved to right and made a headlong diving grab on Adam Jones' liner.

"I still remember, I saw him in that clinic in Miami and he was doing his rehab and the first thing he said was, 'You don't have to worry about me". After starting slow, they have scored six or more runs in seven straight games for the record-tying third time in franchise history. "Once he gets comfortable and settled in, he's a good pitcher", Beckham said. Chris Sale (1-0, 1.06 ERA) takes on Dylan Bundy (0-1, 1.35 ERA) in a battle of aces. He tried to stay in the game, but couldn't continue after another inning of work.
