BOSTON (AP) – John Means pitched seven innings of one-hit ball, retiring the last 18 batters he faced to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 3-0 victory over the Red Sox in their rain-delayed opener. Means struck out five and allowed just two baserunners . He earned the win when Ryan Mountcastle doubled in two runs in the sixth to break a scoreless tie. Anthony Santander added an RBI single in the eighth. A pair of Baltimore relievers closed out the combined two-hitter. The Orioles finished fourth in the AL East last season, one game ahead of the last-place Red Sox.
