The Red Sox secured their first series win of the season on Thursday, beating the Orioles by a final of 4-3. Felix Doubront battled through 5.1 innings of work, allowing 3 runs on 6 hits. Boston’s bullpen backed Doubront’s effort by throwing 3.2 innings of shut out baseball. Boston’s offensive contributions were well spread out, David Ortiz, Jackie Bradley, and David Ross all collected RBI’s, while Xander Bogaerts had a 3-4 night.

  • After 2 seasons as a major league starter, Felix Doubront has been great, bad, and everything in-between. Therefore, in the 2014 season it’s important for the 26 year old to establish himself and correct his shortcomings. (Make or break time for Felix Doubront)
  • Before the Red Sox take the field at Fenway Park for the first time in 2014, those who were part of last years squad will collect their World Series rings. For some, this will be their first ring, for some it will be their third, for others they’re still waiting to win the Fall Classic. (Red Sox eager to receive World Series rings)
