"We're unsafe", Andrew Benintendi said after Saturday's 10-3 pasting of the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a four-game series. The good one hits for power, fields his position, plays every day, and refuses to take himself seriously.

"He gave it a go and then he took batting practice outside and it was impressive", said manager Alex Cora.

The Red Sox announced the postponement as rain is expected throughout the day in the Fenway area.

So far, 2018 is shaping up to be a Good Hanley season, and the Red Sox offense is rolling as a result.

Alex Cobb was hammered in his season debut for the Orioles, issuing a leadoff walk to Mookie Betts and setting an ominous tone for his outing in the first. I'll be fine.' I'll go back to previous year. He's not going to lie to me, he understands that we need him healthy. "I was happy he was in the lineup and he contributed".

Machado didn't perform especially well on the road last season, maintaining a slash line of.229/.268/.398 across 336 plate appearances (his overall season line was.260/.311/.473).

CHICAGO (AP) - Javy Baez had a three-run double as the Chicago Cubs scored nine times in the eighth inning on just three hits, rallying past the Atlanta Braves 14-10 Saturday in cold, wet and windy conditions at Wrigley Field. That moment concluded with Ramirez racing into right field to avoid the talcum/water/Gatorade shower typically reserved for such moments. The over has hit in seven of those games, as opposed to four that've gone under. The over has hit in three of those games, compared to one that've gone under in such games.

Cora liked the way his team looked in spring training but even he has to be surprised at 12-2.

"You know when you visit someone and they're like confident and they tell you things you want to hear?"

"Sadly, I was. I regret that", Cobb said April 13.

"I pretty much just finished the play", Betts said. I'll be fine.' I'll go back to previous year. Out of all the guys, for whatever reason he was locked in and he was the guy we were really paying attention to, because he was hitting line drives all over the place.

" ... When (Ramirez) is locked in, when he's healthy, he's very unsafe". Sometimes we get caught up in the protection part of it, but obviously when J.D.'s swinging the bat, that's a good spot. "This is the best team in the world, hitting right now, and you're never going to get ready for that".

"After the surgery I felt like a release", Ramirez said. I want you to be a good hitter and when he's a good hitter, he's very unsafe.

"Right now, it's been good baseball for a while". So he's locked in. The Sox's 3-4 hitters combined to go 5-for-10 with five RBIs on the afternoon. Sale was stellar in his latest effort, limiting the tough Yankees lineup to only one run in six strong innings, leading to his first win of the season. They went ahead the next inning when J.D. Martinez scored on a wild pitch after reaching on third baseman Danny Valencia's fielding error and advancing on Moreland's double. Sale recorded 308 strikeouts over 214 innings past year (32 starts), while finishing the season 17-8 overall with a 2.90 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.
