Boof Bonser threw a scoreless inning in his first spring training start in two years, striking out two batters and picking up the win, and the Boston Red Sox beat Boston College 6-1 Wednesday night in the second game of an exhibition doubleheader.
The Red Sox won the first game 15-0 over Northeastern University.
Bonser, acquired in a December trade with Minnesota, had surgery in February 2009 to repair partial tears to the labrum and rotator cuff in his right shoulder. His only appearance last season came with a one-inning rehab appearance for Single-A Fort Myers.
The Sox took an early 2-0 lead before Jose Iglesias hit a three-run double in the fourth. Ryan Kalish added a sacrifice fly in the sixth.
David Ortiz hit a two-run homer, and top prospect Casey Kelly made his spring training debut with a scoreless first inning against Northeastern.
Marlins 19, Hurricanes 3: Hanley Ramirez hit a three-run homer in his first at-bat of spring training and the Florida Marlins beat Miami.
Ramirez singled in the third inning and scored. Dan Uggla had a double and a single off the wall in two at-bats, and Jai Miller hit a three-run homer.
Canes freshman starter Jerad Grundy gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings.
Orioles 12, Rays 2: Miguel Tejada started getting comfortable at his new position, and Baltimore broke in its new spring home with a bevy of long balls.
Josh Bell and Rhyne Hughes each hit two home runs as the Orioles hit six homers in winning their spring opener over Tampa Bay.
Tejada made his first appearance at third base in his 13-season big league career.
