The Boston Red Sox take on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Fenway Park on Monday afternoon on Opening Day. The Red Sox will send reigning Cy Young award winner Rick Porcello to the mound and the Pirates will counter with Gerrit Cole.
Porcello will look to pick up where he left off last year and try to match or better his 21-4 record with a 3.15 ERA. Cole will try to stay healthy this year after battling a triceps injury last season.
