Not even a fastball to the hands could interrupt his momentum.

Cobb was among the top 10 starters in the AL last season in fewest homers allowed per nine innings (1.1, 10), but on Saturday he yielded two home runs, including a two-run blast by Hanley Ramirez over the Green Monster in left field that capped a three-run first inning. Boston pounded out a season-high 15 hits, with Martinez collecting three and Benintendi, Ramirez, Blake Swihart, Brock Holt and Tzu-Wei Lin each chipping in two.

- With the win Saturday, Boston improved to 12-2 for the first time in franchise history. "It seems like he's ready", Cora said.

Alex Cobb made his first start of the season since signing as a free agent with the Orioles and was not sharp.

Echoing the USA stance, France said Assad's government had reached a "point of no return" with repeated use of chemical weapons. The US Navy guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey fires a Tomahawk land attack missile on Friday.

George Kontos (1-1) worked a scoreless inning and Felipe Vazquez got his fifth save. Numbers like that don't lie, and I think you have to take the Red Sox on the run line to maximize the value of the bet. They began the year scoring just 21 runs in their first seven games, but came back home to Fenway Park and have since been on fire, putting up 62 runs in their last seven games. With all the traffic that (Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi) are gonna create, he's gonna have good at-bats - he's gonna get pitches to hit.

While he initially stayed in the game in right field for two more innings, picking up another plate appearance along the way, Betts was pulled mid-way through the game.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski fielded questions about Ramirez as early as the general managers' meetings last November.

Red Sox fans need no reminder of the two Hanley Ramirezes. And new manager Alex Cora isn't surprised. "I still remember, I saw him in that clinic in Miami and he was doing his rehab and the first thing he said was, 'You don't have to worry about me".

The campaign's goal was for $1 billion so that they could purchase all 735 remaining stores, but it wasn't going to ever reach it. In the past, Larian has blamed the demise of Toys "R" Us on its private equity owners, which saddled the company with debt.

The last three games of the series between the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins have been called off because of a spring snowstorm. "It was exciting to see him out there today".

"We got some guys that can drive the ball all over the place", Cora said after the game.

" ... When (Ramirez) is locked in, when he's healthy, he's very unsafe". Martinez followed suit in the third with a solo dinger into the right field bullpen.

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. The Red Sox tacked on four more runs in the bottom of the fourth to essentially put the game out of reach. Chris Davis and Trey Mancini each went 2 for 4 with a double while Anthony Santander added a two-bagger of his own and Manny Machado and Adam Jones each contributed a base knock to finish the offense for Baltimore in the loss. "Clearly, they didn't want us to come back on our off day, so we had to play through".
