Red Sox at Orioles Opening Day Live Blog

March 31, 2014 - 10:17 am

BALTIMORE -- The title defense begins. The Red Sox kick off their 2014 season at 3:05 p.m. on Monday in Baltimore, and the live blog will bring you into the pressbox for the game. Stay tuned for the latest news, insights and analysis from WEEI's Lou Merloni, Rob Bradford, Alex Speier and more as Jon Lester takes the hill against the O's and Chris Tillman. Lester will be making his fourth straight Opening Day start, surpassing Babe Ruth and Mel Parnell for the longest such streak of all time by a Sox lefty. Dustin Pedroia will look to live up to his track record of jumpstarting the Red Sox offense; his seven-game Opening Day hitting streak (in which he's 11-for-28 with two doubles, two homers and a .393/.433/.679 line) is the longest by a Red Sox since Mo Vaughn had a seven-game run from 1992-98.
