"Today was certainly a positive step for him".

October seems very far away, but with 12 games completed, there are some early signs that can be taken from the Boston Red Sox since opening day.

Phillies 4, Nationals 2: Cesar Hernandez hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer off Joe Blanton in the eighth and Philadelphia stopped a four-game skid.

In case you haven't heard, the Red Sox are quite popular in Boston, especially on gameday in the neighborhood that surrounds historic Fenway Park.

Sale struck out 12 batters, including five in a row during a stretch in which he retired the final 10 batters he faced. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth for a save on the third straight day, his sixth this season. His streak of 25 consecutive saves is the second-longest active streak in the majors. "I was fortunate to have Wake here, worked a lot", Wright said.

Red Sox: They open a four-game series Friday against Tampa Bay with reigning AL Cy Young Award victor Rick Porcello (1-0, 4.38) facing Rays RHP Chris Archer (1-0, 2.45).

Wright's ERA is at 13.50, which is the second-highest among Major League Baseball pitchers with two or more starts.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Red Sox are -136 money line favorites over the visiting Rays, who have odds of +123 to pull off the upset this morning at 11:05AM ET. The homer made it 2-0.

Authorities are trying to determine whether "one or more people" might have helped the attacker, Brandet said. He said one police officer was killed and two others were seriously injured and hospitalized.

The Red Sox return to action on Tuesday, April 18 when they begin a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. He also said: "I haven't had any setbacks yet" in discussing his progress from the injury. "But as the day went on, before I went out to the bullpen, I told John I felt great and if the situation was there, I wanted it".

Cedeno broke Leon's bat, and the grounder was so slow that second baseman Robertson abandoned the thought of the inning-ending double play and took the out at first, allowing the run to score. Consistent contributions from Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, and Andrew Benintendi are some reasons for why the Sox have such an impressive team average.

"Outstanding effort by everybody that pitched after O", manager Kevin Cash said.

Said Cash: "The next 1,000 chances he gets on a play just like that, he's going to convert".

"Any time you make a mistake, you want to keep fighting and keep battling", Miller said. It's just about patching it together a little longer and a little better until those options get back to 100 percent.

Boston scored one with a two-out rally in the fifth - Dustin Pedroia's double and Benintendi's RBI single to right.

First pitch of the game was at 11 a.m., coinciding with the Boston Marathon.

There was a moment of reflection before the game, marking the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. The Red Sox won 4-3.

Right-hander Chase Whitley was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sunday.
