Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Drew Pomeranz delivers during the first inning of the team's baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park in Boston, Tuesday, April 11, 2017. He never made it this far in his rehab the last time he was coming back in March, as the soreness that kept him off a mound all offseason and into spring training cropped back up and required a cortisone shot.

"Obviously, it's awesome", Pomeranz said after throwing six-plus strong innings in an 8-1 win over the Orioles.

"I was feeling really good today", Pomeranz said, via MLB.com.

We all knew Christian Vazquez could pick it behind the plate, but who knew he was going to start raking as well?

"I mean, the guy who's supposed to hit the homers is not here anymore, Papi", Hanley Ramirez after the Red Sox' 8-1 win against the Baltimore Orioles last night. He had a shutout going through six innings and held the Orioles to four hits before getting pulled in the seventh with Boston hanging on to a 2-1 lead.

Equity in Focus: Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO)
Following U.S. election volatility some analysts have updated their recommended target prices on shares of QTS Realty Trust , Inc. The real estate investment trust reported $0.11 EPS for the quarter, missing the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.41 by $0.30.

Pomeranz, who opened the season on the disabled list with a strained left forearm, took a shutout into the seventh inning. "Those are the things people grind through, and they do a great job of it". "The action on his curveball was sharp, tight ... just the overall power was very encouraging to see tonight from Drew".

Jimenez tossed 4 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on seven hits with one walk while striking out five in a no-decision last Friday against the Yankees. Despite Vazquez's hot start, Sandy Leon is still in line to do the bulk of the catching in Boston.

"No, I don't think it would", Showalter said. O'Day relieved in the sloppy seventh and had his second straight rough outing, this one hurt when J.J. Hardy booted a routine double play ball.

And did I mention that Ortiz is no longer playing baseball? On top of all that, David Price began the season on the DL with an elbow injury, Matt Barnes missed two games on the bereavement list, new reliever Tyler Thornburg began the season on the DL, and Carson Smith is still trying to work his way back from Tommy John surgery. "All I'm trying to do is keep our team in the game". "They go ahead and score three that inning". But he provided them more than they could have hoped for last night, shoving 95-mph heaters in and around the zone for the first few innings then settling in around 90-91 miles per hour with a blurry curveball that the O's barely could touch.
