The Boston Red Sox couldn’t have asked for much more on Opening Day.
It certainly was a strange Opening Day, but the weather was nice, the runs were aplenty for the Sox and most importantly, baseball returned.

Nathan Eovaldi was stellar for Boston, allowing just one run in six innings of work while striking out four Orioles, and the offense terrorized the Orioles.
One person who knows a thing or two about earning a win at Fenway Park on Opening Day is former fireballer Roger Clemens.
The seven-time Cy Young winner joined “NESN After Hours” on Friday night to dissect the Sox, as well as talk about the unorthodox 2020 MLB season as a whole.
