Boston Red Sox
After a season full of wins that should have been wins but weren’t wins, Chris Sale threw a great game on Opening Day, only to see the bullpen blow it.
Joe Kelly and Carsen Smith gave it up on Thursday with six runs allowed in the eighth inning, the only frame Tampa Bay scored in.
Sale gave up one hit in six innings before departing after 92 pitches. He struck out nine.
Eduardo Nunez had two hits, including an inside-the-park home run and Xander Bogaerts had three hits for Boston. Rafael Devers drove in two in the loss.
Tampa Bay Rays
So Tampa Bay started the season with a win. Chris Archer went six innings and gave up four runs but the bullpen threw three shutout innings, allowing just two hits.
Denard Span’s three-run triple gave Tampa the lead for good in the eighth inning. He’s a newcomer, along with Matt Duffy who went 1-for-4 from the leadoff spot. Carlos Gomez and CJ Cron are also new in the 3 and 4 slots in the lineup.
Kevin Keirmaier made a tremendous play on the first pitch of the game on Thursday to rob Mookie Betts of extra bases. He’s going to make a strong play at a Gold Glove in the AL this season, gobbling up everything in center.
