Noob Tube

All the runs batted in for the Red Sox were tallied by players who weren’t on the opening day roster. Daniel Nava and Lars Anderson propelled RBI doubles in the second inning, sandwiching Josh Reddick, who grounded out to short and drove in run.

Ryan Kalish, perhaps Boston’s most impressive rookie, powered a two-run homer into the right field stands. No mean feat as Safeco Field is second only to Target Field in home run-depressing tendencies.

Jon Lester, not be outdone by the newcomers, spun a fabulous eight innings of three-hit ball. The starter fell just one short of his season-high mark of 13 strikeouts, which Lester earned against these selfsame Mariners in Seattle.

Something about playing in his home state’s Northwestern air brings out the best in Lester. Then again, he was pitching against the languid Mariners, who Dennis Eckersley appropriately labeled “lambs.”

You still wake up sometimes, don’t you? You wake up in the dark and hear the screaming of the lambs.
