Rest easy, Nation, your Carmine Hose will not go winless in 2014. Last night, John Lackey was dealing like it was 2013 and David Ortiz, Mike Napoli and Dustin Pedroia led the offense in a 6-2 win at Camden Yards—the first of the 2014 campaign. Ortiz and Napoli (pronounced: Na-POLE-Ee) each clouted two-run HRs, while Pedroia slapped out four singles in the win. Lackey demonstrated pinpoint control in his six innings, making one big mistake to new Red Sox nemesis Nelson Cruz. Koji Uehara closed it out in the ninth. Wait, is it 2013? I just woke up.
