Red Sox: The most wins Boston has ever had to start a season was six in 1918. Jose Offerman doubled off Esteban Yan in the seventh for his 1,000th career hit.

White Sox: Billy Pierce, who pitched for the 1959 pennant winner, threw out the first pitch. There was also a moment of silence for Hall of Famer Early Wynn, the ace of the 1959 team (22-10), who died earlier this week.

Yankees: Tino Martinez homered in the home opener for the second straight season. Scott Brosius snapped an 0-for-10 season-opening slump with a two-run homer.
