Red Sox update

Boston's traveling party has been away from home for two months, counting spring training and a season-opening 10-game road trip. The Red Sox beat the Blue Jays, 8-7, last night in Toronto, and will have to make a quick turnaround to get ready for today's home opener. The Orioles dropped two of three to Boston last weekend, and their only win came Saturday, when Johnson outpitched Martinez. The Orioles missed Lowe, but he wasn't himself in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Jays. He had a blister on his right thumb, which might have been the reason his sinker wasn't working. A year ago, when Lowe won 21 games, he dominated clubs with his sinker.
