After several months of anticipation the Red Sox had their first game against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday. The game was played at the Orioles home field in Baltimore and was an unfortunate turnout for Boston fans.
The Orioles won with a 2-1 victory over the defending World Series champions after a game-winning home run was hit by Nelson Cruz.
The game was tied 1-1 until the seventh inning when a home run was hit off the Red Sox starter Jon Lester. The Sox were unable to score for the rest of the game eventually losing 2-1.
The Sox will be playing the Orioles again on Wednesday, April 2nd and Thursday, April 3rd at the Orioles home field.
