BALTIMORE -- The Boston Red Sox opened the new baseball season the same way they finished the last one -- by combining solid pitching and a relentless offence to win a series. Although taking two of three from the Baltimore Orioles wasnt nearly as uplifting as winning the World Series, it still felt pretty darn good. Felix Doubront and four relievers combined kept Baltimores potent lineup in check, and David Ortiz had three of Bostons 12 hits off Wei-Yin Chen in a 4-3 victory Thursday night. Xander Bogaerts also had three hits for the defending champions. The 21-year-old shortstop has reached in eight of 12 plate appearances, collecting five hits and three walks. Boston finished with 14 hits, 12 of them singles. The Red Sox amassed 33 hits in the three games, including five by Ortiz, but even more impressive was that Boston limited the Orioles to seven runs over 27 innings. "Thats why they were the last team standing last year," Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. "They pitched better than everybody else for the most part, and I dont think Im telling anybody anything they dont know. You pitch real well, youve got a chance to play extra games at the end of the year." Doubront (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings, and Bostons bullpen maintained its 0.00 ERA with 3 1-3 innings of three-hit relief. Chris Capuano got three straight outs in the seventh, Junichi Tazawa worked the eighth and Koji Uehara needed only seven pitches to retire the side in the ninth for his first save. Bostons bullpen allowed six hits over 7 1-3 innings in the series. "Thats going to be critical until we get to the point where we can push the starters a little bit more, or until their efficiency continues to climb," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. All told, there wasnt much to complain about. Bostons only loss in the series was in the opener, a 2-1 decision. "If you can start the season winning a series, thats what you want to do," third baseman Will Middlebrooks said. "Especially with a team like Baltimore, as good as they are and the staff they have. Were pretty happy with it." Bogaerts added, "Im really happy the way things are going so far. We lost the first one, but we came right back and won the next two." Matt Wieters had three hits for the Orioles and Chris Davis had two hits and scored twice, but it wasnt enough to win the deciding game of the series. "They threw well against us in three games, but you know, luckily its a long season," shortstop J.J. Hardy said. "Well see them again." Chen (0-1) gave up four runs in 5 2-3 innings. The left-hander yielded 11 singles, one double and did not issue a walk. He left in the sixth after Middlebrooks doubled and scored on a two-out single by Jackie Bradley Jr. to put Boston ahead 4-2. "I allowed a lot of hits. Thats what I have to work on," Chen said through an interpreter. "I didnt allow a big inning. Thats what Im happy about." Baltimore chased Doubront in the bottom of the sixth. Davis singled, took third on a single by Wieters and scored on a wild pitch by Brandon Workman. Chen gave up singles to four of the first six batters he faced but got a pair of double plays to avoid extensive damage. After Boston put runners on the corners and no outs in the second inning, Bogaerts scored on a double-play grounder. The Red Sox made it 2-0 in the third. With two outs, Bradley scored from first base when a bloop single by Ortiz eluded the grasp of a diving Nelson Cruz. Three singles, the last by David Ross, put Boston up 3-0 in the fourth. The Orioles scored two in the bottom half on doubles by Davis and Wieters, along with an RBI single by Delmon Young.

Jonas Valanciunas Jersey . People familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Friday that arbitrator Fredric Horowitz could issue his decision this weekend.Graeme Souness believes Diego Costa was overly aggressive towards Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte when he seemed to request to be substituted against Leicester City on Saturday. Costa, who would have missed next Sundays meeting with Man Utd had he picked up a fifth booking of the season, appeared to gesture to the bench in the second half of Chelseas 3-0 victory over the defending champions.Conte confirmed after the match he ignored Costas plea because he preferred to focus on Leicester rather than look ahead to the Super Sunday clash, and Souness felt the striker was too forceful in his approach. Antonio Conte was pleased with the intensity Chelsea used during their 3-0 win over Leicester at the Bridge He was a bit aggressive towards his coach, unnecessarily so, Souness told Sky Sports. He [Conte] is the boss, not Diego.He is saying I cant trust myself to be on, so get me off. Just go through the game and dont get involved.I dont believe anyone sshould talk to the manager like that.dddddddddddd. Thats a tad aggressive, for me, from a player. Costa celebrates after scoring against Leicester Costa opened the scoring at Stamford Bridge with his seventh league goal of the season, setting Chelsea on their way to a comfortable win over Claudio Ranieris side.Former Chelsea forward Gianluca Vialli agreed with Souness, but said emotions can occasionally get the better of players in the heat of the moment.I think sometimes we need to understand players when they are on the pitch because it is a theatre, theres pressure, you feel exposed and emotions can run, he added. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ￡6.99. No contract. I can understand sometimes you have a go at a manager but what I didnt like, and I think Antonio liked even less, was the fact it was not a second or two, which could be understandable, but it went on and on for 20 or 30 seconds.Thats too much and Im sure Antonio will do something about it.You play one match at a time and to finish the match well was paramount for Antonio so he left Diego on the pitch because he thinks hes an emotional leader.You can watch Liverpool v Man Utd, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the British Masters on Sky Sports.
