thing perfectly clear.r0;Ir17;m not replacing Paul (Goldschmidt) http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , by any stretch,r1; Jones said after hitting his fourth homer of the season Friday.So far, Jones and the rest of the Diamondbacks are doing a pretty good impression.Ketel Marte homered from both sides of the plate, including a grand slam, and Jones also doubled while extending his hitting streak to eight games when Arizona kept the Boston Red Sox in a season-opening funk with a 15-8 romp Friday night in the Diamondbacksr17; home opener.r0;Itr17;s just the fact of being aggressive,r1; Jones said. r0;Right now itr17;s going good. Itr17;s easy when it is going good. We are just trying to ride the wave and just have quality at-bats every single day.r1;Marte set a career high with five RBIs. His performance marked the seventh time in team history a hitter has homered as a lefty and righty in the same game.Nick Ahmed and Jarrod Dyson had three hits apiece for the Diamondbacks, who have scored at least five runs in seven of their eight games despite losing top run producers Paul Goldschmidt and A.J. Pollock in the offseason.r0;Itr17;s everything you kind of dream about for opening day,r1; Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.r0;The runs just kept coming. I canr17;t say enough about what we did offensively. Itr17;s a pretty constant theme. We are going to grind out some at-bats and take fearless approaches with men in scoring position. Itr17;s something that we highlighted this offseason.r1;Mookie Betts, who had three hits, and Mitch Moreland homered for Boston after Arizona built a 14-1 lead through seven innings.The defending World Series champions have lost seven of their first nine on an 11-game road trip, the longest to open a season in franchise history. They are off to their worst start since 2011, when they began 2-10 before finishing 92-70 and missing the playoffs by one game.r0;We will be OK,r1; Boston manager Alex Cora said. r0;We will keep working. We understand that we are not playing good baseball. It is a tough spot right now, but we will be OK. There were some positives. Later in the game we hit the ball hard. I think in the last two or three innings was the hardest we hit the ball the whole season.r1;Rick Porcello (0-2) gave up 10 hits and seven runs in 4 2/3 innings. He flung a water cooler against the back wall of the Red Sox dugout after being removed in the fifth.Porcello has given up 16 runs, 11 earned, in 7 1/3 innings in his first two starts. Boston has allowed double-digit runs three times, and its starting rotation has given up 43 earned runs in 40 1/3 innings.r0;Very frustrating,r1; Porcello said. r0;I am not doing my job right now and I donr17;t take that lightly. I take full responsibility for these first two starts, not throwing the ball like I need to.I feel fine, felt great out there. Just got my butt kicked.r1;Red Sox infielder Eduardo Nunez came in to pitch the eighth and gave up a home run to Alex Avila.Zack Godley (1-1) gave up three hits and one run in 5 2/3 innings. He also singled twice, scoring one run and driving in another.Marte hit a solo homer in the fourth. His grand slam off reliever Brian Johnson came in a big sixth that also included a pinch-hit homer by Ildemaro Vargas Nelson Cruz Jersey , recalled earlier Friday when Jake Lamb was placed on the injured list.Marter17;s slam came after the Red Sox intentionally walked Christian Walker with runners on second and third and one out.r0;I go aggressive every time,r1; Marte said. r0;Trying to see the ball and put a good swing. I feel great right now. Ir17;m stronger. My mind is ready. We have a good team here. Wer17;re going to have fun.r1;WE MEET AGAINThe teams have a strong connection r12; Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen spent 11 seasons in Bostonr17;s front office before being hired to replace Tony La Russa/Dave Stewart before the 2017 season. D-Backs manager Torey Lovullo was Bostonr17;s bench coach from 2013-16 before Hazen hired him to manage Arizona. Lovullo has traded texts with several former Red Sox, including Dustin Pedroia.The teams met for the first time this weekend since the moves.DAY(S) OF RESTOpening day started Chris Sale will be pushed back to Tuesday, the Red Sox home opener.r0;That was our plan from the get-go, going with a sixth starter on the last day of the road trip,r1; manager Alex Cora said.Sale is 0-2 with an 8.00 ERA in two starts, giving up nine hits and four walks in nine innings.Jackie Bradley Jr. pinch-hit Friday, and J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts will get time off in the final two games of the series.r0;I think it is good for each one of them to have a day off,r1; Cora said.TRAINERr17;S ROOMRed Sox: 2B Dustin Pedroia (left knee) was 2 for 3 with a double and a walk in nine innings of a rehab game for Class A Greenville on Thursday. He was to play again Friday, take Saturday off and be reevaluated Sunday, manager Alex Cora said.Diamondbacks: LHP T.J. McFarland (shoulder) is to pitch in a simulated game Saturday.UP NEXTRed Sox left-hander David Price (0-1) will oppose Diamondbacks right-hander Luke Weaver (0-0) in the second game of a three-game series. Weaver will make his first career appearance both against the Red Sox and at Chase Field.

His own manager didn't even see it coming.r0;Her17;s actually looking better than I thought he would...Ir17;ve been pleasantly surprised,r1; Don Mattingly said.Cooper was the Marlins starting right fielder on Opening Day 2018. Slated for a significant role on the club, he made it through only four games before suffering a wrist injury on a HBP against the Cubs. He would return on July 6, but re-aggravated it while diving for a ball 10 games later. All told, he slashed .212/.316/.242 in 38 major league plate appearances.Entering spring, Cooper wasn't gifted his job back right away. With new additions to a crowded outfield, he was competing with Curtis Granderson Carlos Ruiz Jersey , Lewis Brinson, Rosell Herrera, Austin Dean, andr12;most directlyr12;Peter Or17;Brien. With Dean and Or17;Brien recently being optioned out to Triple-A New Orleans, and even though Mattingly won't release the full roster until Thursday, we can read between the lines: Cooper is back in The Show.The 28-year-old said he has never had an injury of this length or severity in his career, whether it be high school, college, or the pros. He said that sitting on the bench instead of competing was the hardest part of this process. Simply being able to compete in Spring training was a huge milestone in his road back:Cooper slashed .395/.438/.488 in 21 Grapefruit League games to earn his way into Miamir17;s plans.Beyond just getting back to where he was last year, he aimed to improve upon what he accomplished in his short stint last year:Cooper and Or17;Brien essentially alternated days in the starting lineup this spring. Or17;Brien hit .220/.353/.390 in 18 games. Although his stat line was subpar, the Hialeah native put together solid at-bats, and started to improve towards the end. Mattingly called the move r0;our toughest decisionr1; of the spring. Ultimately, the coaching staff wanted to see more consistency in his at-bats. Although Or17;Brien didnr17;t make the 25-man roster, Mattingly see the possibility for a call-up as the season moves along. r0;It doesnr17;t mean he still doesnr17;t end up being a big part of our club,r1; said Mattingly. r0;Your club does not usually end up the way it starts.r1;On Monday morning, the Marlins capped off Spring Training with a rain-shortened r0;Futures Gamer1; scrimmage (more coverage of it from our own Ian Smith). The club elaborated on their surprising decision to release veteran right-hander DanStraily, and unofficially identified the winners of several roster battles.With three days to go, here is our final 2019 Opening Day roster projectionitchersr12;Jos茅Ure帽a, TrevorRichards, SandyAlc谩ntara, PabloL贸pez http://www.marinersfanproshop.com/authentic-edgar-martinez-jersey , CalebSmith, Wei-YinChen, AustinBrice, NickAnderson, TylerKinley, TayronGuerrero, AdamConley, DrewSteckenrider and SergioRomo (RileyFerrell to be placed on the 15-day injured list)Position playersr12;JorgeAlfaro, ChadWallach, Mart铆nPrado, NeilWalker, StarlinCastro, JTRiddle, MiguelRojas, BrianAnderson, CurtisGranderson, LewisBrinson, GarrettCooper and RosellHerreraThe regular season for the Marlins begins Thursday against the Colorado Rockies at 4:10 p.m. Fish Stripes will be credentialed and on site for that as well as nearly every home game in 2019.
