The Red Sox received seven strong innings from Opening Day starting pitching Jon Lester and Grady Sizemore (pictured) homered in his first game in over two years in a 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.
Lester was charged with both Orioles runs on just six hits and one walk while striking out eight. The win went to Zach Britton who came on in relief of starter Chris Tillman.
The Orioles scored first with a run in the bottom of the second inning when Delmon Young grounded into a double play scoring Nelson Cruz, who would also score the decisive Oriole run on a long home run off Lester in the bottom of the seventh inning.
Boston rapped out nine hits including two each for Dustin Pedroia and Sizemore who tied the game in the top of the fourth inning with a solo blast off Tillman.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
