Red Sox Starting Pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez

- Alex Cobb knew the Boston Red Sox would present a hard challenge in his season debut Saturday, but the Orioles right-hander was confident he had done everything he could over the season's first few weeks to be ready for the American League's most unsafe lineup. The 25-year old third baseman is locked in, driving in eight runs in his last seven games including two RBI's in Friday's loss to Boston, and he is now hitting.316 with three homers and eight RBI's on the season.

The Red Sox are 12-2, their best-ever start through 14 games.

The Boston Red Sox will look to continue their hot start and push their winning streak to four games after winning their 3rd straight on Saturday. The 30-year old slugger has developed into an elite hitter, and he is now hitting.250 with two homers and 11 RBI's on the season. Last season, he allowed multiple homers in just seven of his 29 starts last season.

- Blake Swihart filled Betts' spot at the top of the order and slid into left field.

Betts limped back to the dugout and, after high-fiving several teammates, went down the steps into the clubhouse with trainers. But Dombrowski signed only Mitch Moreland until spring training, then added J.D. Martinez in February.

"You know when you visit someone and they're confident and they tell you things you want to hear?" "He was doing his rehab and the first thing he said, 'You don't have to worry about me".

The BoSox will put the ball in the hands of righty Hector Velazquez (1-0, 3.12 ERA), who started 3 games a year ago and finished the season 3-1 overall with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.

By then, manager Alex Cora had already decided that Ramirez was going to be the team's No.?3 hitter.

"How on Earth will the Boston Red Sox match the New York Yankees' one-two punch of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton?" He's appeared in at least 145 games each of the last three years. "I still remember, I saw him at that clinic in Miami", Cora said.

But after an ugly Orioles debut in a 10-3 loss to the Red Sox, Cobb - who walked off the field with two outs in the fourth inning and was charged with eight runs, seven earned, on 11 base runners - said he felt ill-prepared to face Boston's lineup. 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. On the other hand, the Red Sox have netted 6.3 units and are 5-6 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher.

" ... When (Ramirez) is locked in, when he's healthy, he's very risky. This is the best team in the world hitting right now, and you're never going to get ready for that". The over's hit in six of those games, compared to four which went under the total.
