Hanley Ramirez leaves game with hamstring cramp

Tampa Bay Rays' Shane Peterson celebrates his two-run home run during the second inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox in Boston Friday

Tampa Bay Rays' Shane Peterson celebrates his two-run home run during the second inning of a baseball game against the Boston Red Sox in Boston Friday

NOTES: The Red Sox honored the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing in a pregame ceremony.

Boston acquired the 6-foot-6 left-hander from the White Sox for four prospects during the offseason.

"The group of guys in here just make it easy", Moreland said. "Everything's just been a smooth transition". "It's just [a matter of] not getting far away from what you're comfortable with so you can get right back to making a pitch when you need it". On April 9 in Detroit, for example, he gave up one run on one hit and two walks and needed to rely on every last ounce of his power fastball to strike out the side and nail down a 7-5 win.

The Rays scored three runs in the first off of Drew Pomeranz, but the Red Sox took the lead with a two-run seventh on Mitch Moreland's two-run single. "I'll never forget that day", he said.

Reds 7, Brewers 5: Jesse Winker doubled in the go-ahead runs with his first big league hit, and Cincy overcame two more homers by Eric Thames. Consistent contributions from Xander Bogaerts, Mookie Betts, and Andrew Benintendi are some reasons for why the Sox have such an impressive team average. Morton (1-1) worked in and out of trouble over 5 innings, allowing 5 hits and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts.

The Rays had a chance in the eighth when Kevin Kiermaier led off with a single off Matt Barnes and stole second, but Evan Longoria (0-for-4 on a DH day) and Brad Miller struck out and, after Logan Morrison walked, Corey Dickerson popped out.

Braves 4, Padres 2: Winless at Turner Field, R.A. Dickey got a victory in his first appearance at SunTrust Park behind home runs from Brandon Phillips and Adonis Garcia. The knuckleballer gave up four home runs over 1 1/3 innings in his previous start. Panda jumped a couple of times to celebrate with teammates on his way back to the dugout.

Tampa Bay Rays starter Jake Odorizzi left his start against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday after his first pitch of the second inning because of left hamstring tightness.

"It was a weird one", Cobb said. "But as the day went on, before I went out to the bullpen, I told John I felt great and if the situation was there, I wanted it".

Cash, whose team has lost four of its last five to drop to 6-6, said Chase Whitley would be brought up from the minors and added he didn't expect Odorizzi to be out long. Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off his left ankle, limped around but stayed in the game.

INDIANS 3, TWINS 1 Danny Salazar finished six innings strong after a shaky start, Michael Brantley homered and drove in two runs and visiting Cleveland beat Minnesota. He also had a wild pitch. It's the first time in 89 career starts he failed to record a strikeout. "He's got three power pitches for a lot of swing and miss, and let's face it the three starts he's made for us he's not had any margin of error". "I just didn't have it today". The Red Sox will then hit the road for a three-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Betts hasn't struck out in 123 consecutive plate appearances, the longest streak by a Red Sox player since Denny Doyle's 159 in 1975.

Blake Snell takes the mound on Monday for the Rays, and the 24-year-old southpaw has had better luck of late than has Wright.

In each of Sale's three starts the Red Sox have done very little offensively, collecting only three total runs.
