Gonzalez gets through 5 innings, O’s beat Red Sox
Question of the Day
Gonzalez allowed seven hits, including back-to-back home runs by Xander Bogaerts and Will Middlebrooks leading off the fourth.
Middlebrooks hit his fourth homer and singled, raising his average to .341.
Baltimore’s Nick Markakis also is hitting .341. He doubled, scored a run and drove in one.
Steve Clevenger hit his second homer for the Orioles and Ryan Flaherty had two hits.
Dustin Pedroia had two hits for Boston.
“The first inning was good and then I started struggling a little bit towards the end,” he said. “But made some good pitches when I needed to. It was a rough one out there. Fastball was cutting a lot. Couldn’t really find it, but towards the end was better. Last two innings were better, even though I gave up a couple of home runs.”
“I’m ready, ready to go. I’m excited for spring training to end and start the season,” he said.
Red Sox: Starting in place of Jon Lester, right-hander Allen Webster went 5 2-3 innings, giving up five runs on 11 hits. He struck out three and walked two.
“I thought he made some big pitches with men on base,” manager John Farrell said. “There were a number of sinkers he left on the plate that, with their aggressive approach, particularly to fastballs, he gave up obviously a high number of hits.”
“But I thought, more than anything, he maintained mound presence and composure out there and did make some pitches, particularly with men in scoring position,” he said.
Orioles: Left-hander Johan Santana is scheduled to throw from a full mound on Thursday as he progresses from shoulder surgery last year. … Right-hander Dylan Bundy threw from a half mound on Wednesday for the first time as comes back from Tommy John surgery last year. He had previously been throwing from flat ground.
