The Red Sox started their season off in style last night with an 8-0 shutout win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Boston touched up Philly ace Cole Hamels for four homeruns in his 5 innings of work. Mookie Betts, Dustin Pedroia and Hanley Ramirez all went yard with Pedroia going deep twice. Hamels, who was an staple offseason trader rumors for the Sox, gave up just 14 homers all of last season so the ball fly out of the ball park with regularity in his home opener. Hanley Ramirezput the finishing touches on the win with a grand slam in the 9th off reliever Jake Diekman. Sox starter Clay Buchholz was superb pitching 7 innings of 3 hit shutout baseball. Buchholz struck out 9 and walked just 1. After the game he credited an above average curve ball as the key to his success in the opener. Betts, Pedroia and Rameriz all had multi-hit games for the Sox. Rick Porcello and his new contract will make their Red Sox debut on Wednesday with Philly sending Aaron Harang to the bump. Porcello was 15-13 for the Tigers last year while Harang went 12-12 for the Braves. First pitch is live on WMRC tomorrow at 7:05 from the city of brotherly love.
