A sunny start for Red Sox opener in Boston

Prior to Sandoval, the last Red Sox player to go hitless in at least five plate appearances while striking out at least three times was, somewhat incredibly, Wade Boggs, who did so in the Sox' kickoff to the 1986 season - the only instance in Boggs' entire career in which he went hitless in at least five at-bats with at least three strikeouts, and one of just 12 instances in his career in which he punched out three times.

The opening series of the 2017 campaign will be no different.

Red Sox: LHP Chris Sale makes his Boston debut Wednesday after being acquired in an offseason trade with the White Sox.

This is the kind of formula the Red Sox will look to repeat day-in and day-out. Three runs. Six hits.

The Red Sox bid farewell to a legend at the end of last season. He's actually gone deep in each of his last three openers, as he went deep as part of a 4-for-4 game for Double A Portland to kick-start his standout 2014 season. Pirates starter Gerrit Cole was looking like the ace he's always been projected to be for the first few innings. "A pretty special young player". The reigning American League Cy Young Award victor was making his first career Opening Day start.

Along with his homer, Benintendi had what might have been a game-saving catch in seventh inning.

Niagara Falls to be lighted up blue to create autism awareness
Its cause remains unknown, though both genetics and environmental factors are thought to play a role, according to Autism Speaks . Ajayi said research had shown that people with autism have gastro-intestinal disorders, food sensitivities and many allergies.

Taillon is also coming off of a year in which he turned some heads.

The former second overall pick walked just 17 batters in 104 innings while compiling 85 strikeouts.

If you are at the game, we would love to see your pictures. Benintendi's sample size is small for sure as he only played in 34 games last season. "You're talking about as dynamic a young outfield as there is in all of baseball".

"I expect to hold my own against everybody", Cole said. If he has success, the Pirates will have success.

Taylor is in line to be Brew Tech's first major leaguer.

Taylor had a 3.44 ERA in 21 appearances past year at Double-A Portland.

India Open 2017: PV Sindhu avenges Rio Olympic loss, beats Carolina Marin
Men doubles: 4-Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (Ina) bt 6-Ricky Karandasuwardi and Angga Pratama 21-11, 21-15. But Sindhu was prepared this time around as she raised the tempo once again to clinch three straight points and pocket the game.

"You get home and there's snow on the ground", said second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who with his 11th straight opening day start would be just one behind Carl Yastrzemski's franchise record for the most consecutive Red Sox openers at the same position.

Betts put up monster numbers in 2016, hitting.318 with 31 home runs and 113 RBIs in 158 games. "I feel strong", Cole said of his outing. Porcello was so good past year because of his command.

Cole will be an important piece to the Pirates team in 2017 and he will be put to the test right away in beantown.

The Sox then went full tilt.

We know nothing. That is the beauty of Opening Day - the first step of a path whose direction and destination remain unknown.
