first_imgMartinez has 3 RBIs, Red Sox beat Orioles 13-2 in opener July 24, 2020 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditBOSTON (AP) — For one night at least, the Boston Red Sox didn’t miss Mookie Betts’ bat. J.D. Martinez and Kevin Pillar each drove in three runs, and the Red Sox rolled past the Baltimore Orioles 13-2 on Friday night in Fenway Park’s first taste of regular season baseball during the coronavirus pandemic. Jackie Bradley Jr., Jose Peraza, Martinez and Pillar each doubled as part of a four-run third inning. Boston kept it going in the fourth, sending 11 batters to the plate and adding six more runs. Orioles: Right-hander Alex Cobb makes his first start since April 26, 2019, after missing most of the season with a hip injury that required surgery in June. He was 0-2 with a 10.95 ERA in three starts.Red Sox: Martín Pérez makes his Red Sox debut after signing as a free agent this offseason. He pitched in relief in his first three outings of 2019, but started in final 29 appearances. He was 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA. ___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Roenicke said he believes the new expanded playoff format should increase his team’s chances of making the postseason. “I think knowing if we have that extra playoff spot or two, it helps us,” he said. “I’m not planning to finish there. But if it does and we get in great.”TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: OF Trey Mancini said Friday he’s “feeling good” as he continues to receive chemotherapy treatment every other week following colon cancer surgery on March 12. He’s out for the season and will watch his teammates from afar. “I know that I’ll be back out there with them eventually, but right now I’m just more concerned with my treatments,” said Mancini, who expects to end the chemo sessions on Sept. 21.UP NEXTcenter_img Associated Press Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) gave up just one run and five hits, striking out four over six innings in his first career opening day start. Baltimore starter Tommy Milone (0-1) got his first opening day nod after All-Star lefty John Means experienced arm fatigue. He surrendered four runs, four hits, three walks, had a wild pitch and struck out five. Rio Ruiz homered in the seventh. Like in other opening day games around the majors, there were no spectators allowed inside Boston’s fabled park on Friday. But there were cardboard cutouts of Red Sox fans placed on the seats above the Green Monster to serve as virtual witnesses to the franchise’s version of the league’s new normal. Friday also marked Boston’s first regular season game since an offseason shakeup that included a salary-dump trade of Betts and pitcher David Price to the Dodgers, and the departure of Alex Cora as manager for his role in an illegal system of sign stealing when he was with the Houston Astros.Ron Roenicke, who served as Cora’s bench coach for two seasons and succeeded him as manager just before the start of spring training, earned his first managerial win since a five-year tenure with the Brewers ended in 2015. PREGAME TRIBUTESThere were continued nods to the nation’s social justice movement prior to the game. Players on both teams wore Black Lives Matter t-shirts and a Major League Baseball-issued Black Lives Matter sign was spread across the center field bleachers. Players from both teams knelt while holding a black ribbon in a unity moment before the game. During the national anthem, Red Sox outfielders Jackie Bradley Jr. and Alex Verdugo continued to kneel and were joined by third base coach Carlos Febles and first base coach Tom Goodwin. Orioles players stood with their arms linked. There was also a moment of silence in honor of those who’ve died during the pandemic and for medical workers. EXTRA CHANCESlast_img read more

Chris Kreider injury update: Rangers winger suffers fractured foot

first_imgThe New York Rangers endured a rude awakening Friday night in Philadelphia.After winning nine of their previous 10 games, their momentum finally ended as they lost 5-2 to the Flyers. To make matters worse, Chris Kreider suffered a serious injury.  The forward went down midway through the first period after blocking a shot by Philadelphia’s Philippe Myers. Kreider headed straight for the bench and the Rangers quickly announced on Twitter that he fractured his foot and wouldn’t return to the game. The Rangers have announced that Chris Kreider sustained a fractured foot – here’s where he blocked Philippe Myers in the first period, and left the game shortly after #NYR pic.twitter.com/titkzQVXQ2— Shayna (@hayyyshayyy) February 29, 2020Rangers coach David Quinn said after the game that there was no timetable for Kreider’s return. Depending on the severity of the fracture, he could be sidelined anywhere from several weeks to several months. Morgan Rielly of the Toronto Maple Leafs recently suffered a similar injury, also while blocking a shot, and was ruled out for at least eight weeks. Smaller fractures can have recovery periods of two to four weeks, however. The injury is a tough blow for Kreider, who was widely rumored to be leaving New York before the trade deadline on Monday but instead ended up signing a seven-year, $45 million contract extension that will keep him with the Rangers for the foreseeable future. Kreider has spent his entire career with the team since being drafted in 2009. It’s also a big setback for the Rangers, who have fought their way into the playoff picture after a rocky start to the season. They sit two points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets for the final Eastern Conference wild-card spot with just over a month remaining in the regular season, and now they’ll be without one of their top offensive players. Kreider, 28, has put up 45 points (24 goals, 21 assists) in 63 games this year.last_img read more
