Red Sox announce postponement of Monday's game

"The forecast for tomorrow calls for an extended period of sustained rain throughout the day and into the evening hours in the Fenway area", the Red Sox said.

"If you don't respect that, I don't know who you are or what you're doing", Boston ace Chris Sale said.

"There was no complaining". Swihart entered the game in left field as part of a shuffled outfield when Betts left the game - and he went 2-for-3 with a double, his most productive day at the plate this season.

The Red Sox announced that Monday's game against the Orioles at Fenway Park has been postponed due to inclement weather.

It's the first time the Patriots' Day game in Boston has been postponed since 1984. Sale has only allowed two runs in his first 17 innings of the season. The Red Sox posted an announcement offering free hot chocolate to fans from the middle of the fifth inning on. He is 2-1 with a 3.57 ERA in six games (three starts) at Fenway and 3-4 with a 5.01 ERA lifetime against Boston. Cobb allowed eight runs, seven earned, on 10 hits in 3.2 innings as the Orioles lost, 10-3, to the Boston Red Sox.

This could be a good pitching matchup as Sale should have a good start against a poor lineup and Bundy has looked strong in his three starts.

"It was tough", Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said.

With surprise players such as starter Hector Velazquez and rookie relief pitcher Bobby Poyner making an impact early on, along with other regular key players pulling their weight, the team seems poised to be a major threat to the league. Lin also sparked the fifth-inning rally that led to Boston's first run, smacking a single through the right side ahead of Benintendi's run-scoring triple.

The go-ahead run came in the sixth, when J.D. Martinez scored from third on a wild pitch that skipped away from catcher Caleb Joseph. The 25-year old right fielder drove in a run in the Red Sox' series opening win on Friday night, and last season he registered 12 RBI's in 77 at bats against the Orioles. That was something I haven't felt very often in a long time, just really not having much clue what was going on up there. This will mark Johnson's first career start against the Orioles. "We threw a lot of things at him today, and he never gave in".

"In the Dominican", he joked. Many wondered why the Red Sox were going to rely on an aging designated hitter coming off a down year.

"I've been saying it for a while - we've been playing good baseball for a while, regardless of spring training", Cora said. "Somebody that's capable of doing it is him - he played in Chicago". He made five starts against Boston in 2017 and put together a 2-2 record against the Red Sox with a 3.94 ERA and 14 strikeouts.

Red Sox games have had an over/under record of 7-5-1 so far in 2018. Price left his last start Wednesday after feeling a "sensation" in his throwing hand.
