Crawford looked strong in his season debut, pounding the strike zone and allowing his defense to make plays early on. The strikeouts came later, racking up seven in six innings, including a perfectly placed fastball to freeze Mitch Haniger on his final pitch of the night.

Gilbert allowed just one run in seven innings while tallying eight strikeouts of his own with just four hits allowed.

Masataka Yoshida added an insurance run with an RBI single after striking out three times on the night.

With several left-handers due up, Joely Rodriguez took the ball in the bottom half of the inning. From there, Boston’s luck took a tailspin. Luke Raley drove in a run on a broken-bat single to left. A bobble from Wilyer Abreu put runners on second and third. A J.P. Crawford fielder’s choice tied the game.
