The 2016 edition of the Boston Red Sox finished off their Spring schedule with a 7-4 win over the defending AL East Champion Blue Jays. The Friday and Saturday contests at Montreal's archaic Olympic Stadium drew over 100,000 baseball-hungry Québec fans. Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan started the Boston scoring with a HR—in a five-run fifth inning. Travis Shaw, who came in late to replace Hanley Ramirez at first, added two more hits to finish the Spring at .338 with an .886 OPS. Sean O'Sullivan—who made 13 starts for the Phillies last season—started and went six solid innings for the win. Boston heads to The-Mistake-On-The-Lake to being the season at 4PM Eastern on Monday (weather permitting).
