LEADING OFF: Cobb to make Orioles debut at Fenway Park

Boston Red Sox's Mookie Betts reacts after hitting a double during the first inning against the New York Yankees in Boston Tuesday

The Red Sox announced that Monday's 11 a.m. game against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park has been postponed because of the forecast of sustained rain throughout the day.

The Orioles are 4-0 in their last four in game four of a series, and 0-5 in their last five Monday games. In seven starts before Saturday, he compiled a 7-and-1 record, with an ERA of 3.15 in 40 innings.

Kingery's two-out drive off the center field wall capped a four-run burst in the third inning that put Philadelphia ahead 4-2.

Velazquez will be making his first start since he shut down the Rays to the tune of one run on five hits over 5 2/3 innings on April 1st.

Before the game, Boston designated hitter Hanley Ramirez was asked if he could remember playing in such cold conditions.

The Orioles (5-8) find themselves 5.5-games behind the 'Sox after their incredible start to the 2018 campaign, so to pull a few of those back right away would be ideal.

Red Sox: LHP David Price (1-1, 2.40) pitches the opener of a nine-game road trip Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels. Both Cashner and Johnson have started out well, and should keep both offenses in check.

About 8am, Inspector Bragg said officers still hadn't been able to get inside the home, where a woman and her adult son lived. A woman has died following a Saturday evening house fire in Akron's Middlebury neighborhood, east of downtown, officials say.

So the key to Cobb's success is breaking balls, and he did not have those working at all in his debut against the Boston Red Sox.

For all the attention given the hot starts of first Xander Bogaerts and then Mookie Betts, the best numbers in the lineup belong to Ramirez.

Mitch Moreland also had three hits for the Red Sox, who completed a three-game sweep of the shortened series and improved to a major league-best 13-2 under new manager Alex Cora. Babe Ruth had served as the Red Sox starting pitcher the previous afternoon, also adding a double and two runs scored in an 8-1 triumph. Betts now features a sizzling.353 average with two homers and 10 RBI's on the season.

Unfortunately for the Orioles, Minor League Baseball did not allow Cobb to use major league baseballs. They feature a stellar 3.07 team ERA, good for fourth overall. They have had innings of at least four runs in seven straight games and have scored 62 in the last seven.

I am taking the Orioles in this matchup, however my stronger play is on the total. We've got a lot more other worries than Alex Cobb pitching. Furthermore, Cashner has been very sharp in his last two starts, limiting the Yankees and Blue Jays to a combined two runs in 13 innings. Martinez hit a solo homer over the bullpens in right field for the Red Sox.

CARDINALS 6, REDS 1: The Cincinnati Reds sunk to their worst start since 1931, losing their seventh in a row when Greg Garcia hit two home runs for the first time in his career and led the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-1 win Saturday.
