The Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park opener was not quite what fans hoped it would be, with Boston falling 7-5 to the Toronto Blue Jays in their first home appearance of the season Tuesday afternoon.
After the game, manager Alex Cora said the Blue Jays put great pressure on the Sox and took advantage of Boston’s mistakes throughout the game. Cora added that the team has to do a better job of slowing down the running game, adding that Chris Sale’s pitching still was not where the team would like it to be.
