The Red Sox have ended an eight-game regular season loss against the Yankees – a part that doesn’t include their win in last year’s American League Joker game. The rival will play only on July 7.

The MLB season 2022 begins
Baseball is back after a labor dispute that delayed the start of the season.

The Rays are the last undefeated team
ST. PETERSBURG, Florida – As much as the Tampa Bay Rays wanted Corey Kluber to have a chance to win the pitcher debut with his new team, a higher priority is to keep two-time Cy Young Award winner fresh and healthy.
The 36-year-old right-hander looked good in his first game since joining the AL East title defender, scoring 4 ⅔ goalless innings in an 8-0 win that ended the Baltimore Orioles ’opening game on Sunday.

“I didn’t really control the count in the way I would have liked in the end,” Kluber said. “But at the end of the day, I made good pitches when I had to keep them out of traffic lights.”
Brandon Lowe hit Homer from two runs against Tyler Wells (0-1), while Wander Franco had his second game with three goals in three days and drove in a couple of sets, while the Rays beat the Orioles 15th in a row and tied the fastest start to the season in the history of the club.

“They have a really good pitcher, but we didn’t do a very good job swinging the sticks. We didn’t make them work a lot, ”said Orioles manager Brandon Hyde. “We can improve our shots with two shots, put more pressure on their defense. We have some guys arguing early. I would love to see them. We put too much pressure on ourselves. ”
The clubber, who played on his birthday for the first time in his career, allowed three goals, walked four and hit five in a game of 87 points.

Manfred gave the players headphones
Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred donated Bose headphones to first-league players on the opening day as a peaceful offer after a bitter 99-day blockade that delayed the start of the season.
Major League Baseball confirmed that the headphones and letter signed by Manfred were left in each player’s lockers when the teams began their seasons on Thursday and Friday. The present was first reported by The Athletic.
“Please accept this gift as a small gesture of my appreciation for the hard work that comes with being a major player and your respect for our incredible fans,” Manfred wrote. “Thank you for everything you do in a game that has such a rich history and deep meaning for our fans in the United States and around the world. We wish you good luck in a successful season. “
Manfred’s relationship with the players has become increasingly icy since he succeeded Bada Seliga as commissioner in 2014.
At a press conference announcing an agreement with the union to end this winter’s lockout, Manfred admitted that he had failed in his role as a diplomat towards the players and promised to improve the relationship.
Asked what Manfred could do to fix things this spring, players told the Associated Press that the commissioner could do more to introduce himself as game manager. At least one player, pitcher St. Louis Cardinals Adam Wainwright said he thought the damage was irreparable.
“Simply put, he’s not doing anything for us,” Wainwright said. “I know what it will be like, so Commissioner Manfred, don’t take it personally. That’s exactly what it looks like from a player’s point of view. “
