Crawford Collects Two Hits Vs. Oriioles
Crawford has his first two hits for Red Sox
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) – Carl Crawford had his first two hits in a
Boston uniform and a Red Sox split-squad and the Baltimore Orioles
played 10 innings Saturday before calling it a tie, 4-4.
Crawford, hitless in his first nine at-bats, signed a 7-year,
$142 million contract with the Red Sox this winter. He had singles
in the first and fifth innings and left the game after walking in
the seventh inning.
Jacoby Ellsbury and Crawford were the only recognizable names to
make the trip. Most of the regulars stayed behind in Fort Myers for
their split-squad game against Florida.
Boston's rookie second baseman Oscar Tejada had three RBIs for
the second straight game.
Baltimore starter Brad Bergesen gave up three runs to the Red
Sox in the third innings.
