Many believed that he must have hurt himself in the fall. He spent the 2016 season on the disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery performed on June 15, 2015. There were some issues and he certainly looked rusty, but the stuff looked good and there was reason to be optimistic.
Left-hander David Price is set to make his second start since coming off from the disabled list in Saturday's matchup against the Orioles.
Machado's home run was the first to reach the second deck at Camden Yards since former Orioles slugger Mark Reynolds did it on August 7, 2011, against Toronto.
Boston grew its lead to 6-3 as Benintendi smacked his second homer in the seventh inning - marking the first multi-home run game of his career.
The right-hander loaded the bases on a single to Boston first baseman Mitch Moreland leading off the sixth, and walked centerfielder Jackie Bradley and third baseman Pablo Sandoval with one out. The throw, however, tailed on Pena and sailed past Machado into left field, allowing two runs to score.
Turns out, the tumble Rodriguez took before the game was not so harmless. In the first at bat of this inning, Price tried to get Manny Machado with a fastball down and in.
After Boston jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, Sale yielded three runs and three hits in the bottom half.
Champions Trophy 2017: England vs New Zealand match
England has won nine of its last 10 ODI matches (L1) whilst New Zealand has claimed wins in 10 of its last 14 completed ODIs (L4). But Jos Buttler s dashing unbeaten 61 off 48 balls, including a couple of extravagant sixes, helped take them to 310 all out.
The Red Sox have won 10 of their past 14 games. "There's going to be some ebbs and flows to the season". "I just wish early on I made a few better pitches, especially off-speed stuff".
Stop me if you've heard this one: the Red Sox have an injury to a starting pitcher. The former has long had a reputation as a defensive wizard praised for his cannon arm and uncanny instincts that allow him to get a jump on the ball with highly efficient routes.
Orioles: Hit hard by Houston on Sunday in his first start with Baltimore, Alec Asher (1-3, 3.77 ERA) gets a second chance to prove he's worthy of replacing struggling Ubaldo Jimenez in the rotation.
Trumbo, who was 3-for-4 on the night, is now hitting.429 with six RBIs over his past six games. He's slashing.263/.298/.338 with one home run, 8 runs, 5 RBI's, and 3 stolen bases in that span of time. Boston's offense went into a bit of a cold spell over the next few innings, but they still worked the counts well enough to knock Bundy out after just five innings. He'd been hitting.123 in his previous 73 at-bats.
NOTES: Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (wrist) swung in the cage Sunday one day after taking ground balls on the field.
And in the sixth, Tillman couldn't overcome two walks again.
Benintendi homered twice and drove in three run. Hardy struck out to end the inning. In his season debut, Price gave up two hits and three runs through five innings while walking two and striking out four. I know Sale hasn't quite been Sale-like lately, but it's hard to pick against the Red Sox when he's out there.
