Boston College 200 001 0 - 3 8 0Ian Browne: "Backed by a home run and three RBIs by Andy Dominique, the Red Sox cruised to a 9-3 victory in a seven-inning exhibition against Boston College in the home opener at City of Palms Park. Veteran knuckleballer Tim Wakefield took the start for the Sox, pitching one inning and giving up four runs and two hits [he must mean 4 hits and 2 runs] while striking out two. BC took an early 2-0 lead, getting RBI singles from Drew Locke and Ryan Leahy. But the Sox stormed right back in the bottom of the first, as Tony Womack and Pokey Reese pulled off a double steal, setting up David Ortiz for a two-run single. Left-hander Phil Seibel picked up the win for the Sox, pitching two shutout innings."
