Cobb was trailing 3-0 after Boston's third batter, first baseman Hanley Ramirez, hit a two-run home run in the first, and he gave up another in the third on designated hitter J.D. Martinez's homer and four more in the fourth.
So far, 2018 is shaping up to be a Good Hanley season, and the Red Sox offense is rolling as a result. Cobb will start the game in his debut with the Orioles. That won't fly against Sale, who is stingy on the mound to begin with, and has won his last five career starts against the O's by a coming score of 31-8, including a 21-5 margin in three starts as a member of the Red Sox.
The BoSox will put the ball in the hands of righty Hector Velazquez (1-0, 3.12 ERA), who started 3 games past year and finished the season 3-1 overall with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP.
Betts, 25, is off to an outstanding start this season for the Red Sox, batting.353 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 14 games. Bundy posted a solid 3.94 ERA against the Red Sox last season, and he has been outstanding in his three starts this season, plus the under is 5-1-1 in Bundy's last seven starts against the Red Sox.
Betts' leg bent awkwardly as the All-Star outfielder slid into Orioles catcher Chance Sisco while attempting to avoid a tag in the bottom of the first inning. Right fielder Mookie Betts had to leave the game after the second inning with a foot injury, later reported as a left foot contusion.More news: Warriors back to dominant selves, top Spurs 113-92 in Game 1

Cora and Ramirez may not be surprised, but few expected this production from the Sox slugger through the first three weeks of the regular season.
"I just heard it for the first time".
11-1 in their last 12 games. "I still remember, I saw him at that clinic in Miami", Cora said.
"We got some guys that can drive the ball all over the place", Cora said after the game.
Boston Red Sox right fielder J.D. Martinez hits a home run during the third inning against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. 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. "When he's locked in and when he's healthy a he's very unsafe". Andrew Benintendi followed by yanking a 2-1 splitter off the Green Monster to score Betts, and Ramirez took a 2-2 splitter over the high wall in left to hand the Orioles a 3-0 hole. "This is the best team in the world hitting right now, and you're never going to get ready for that". 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. We've got a lot more other worries than Alex Cobb pitching.
