Doubront (6-4-1-3-7, 99) pitched extremely well, but after he was pulled (at the right time), the roof fell in. And the walls collapsed. Then the whole fucking pile of house caught fire and burned out of control.
David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia each had four hits.

If it feels like forever since the Red Sox began a regular season with a bunch of wins, that's because it has. You have to go back to 2006 to find a Boston team that was winning "right out of the gate" (© Don Orsillo).
Records End of April 2012 - 1-5, 4-9 2011 - 0-6, 2-10 11-15 2010 - 1-3, 4-9 11-12 2009 - 2-6 14- 8 2008 - 3-4, 5-6 17-12 2007 - 2-3 16- 8 2006 - 6-1, 11-4 14-11In 2007 and 2008, they hung around .500 for a while before finishing the first month with a winning record. In 2009, they started 2-6 before winning 11 consecutive games.
The Red Sox have a league-average offense, but they have scored three or fewer runs in seven of their 13 games. That low level of production will not get you a winning record. ... Since 2001, the Yankees have played 31 April games at Fenway Park, with a 9-22 record.
We've got the talent. We just need to execute. You're not going to spend the whole season just thinking about the talent that we have. We have to win games. We have to provide the opportunity to win games. I know that in everybody's mind it's the beginning of the season or whatever. But what's it going to take, until July for us to start winning? We need to step up and do something different and make things happen.
