I'm hoping the kid does well in the Majors.
I'll be watching his progress.

Not a bad start to the year:

BOSTON (AP) -- The Red Sox bid farewell to a legend at the end of last season. This season opened with a big day for one of their rising stars.

Rookie Andrew Benintendi hit a three-run homer that capped a five-run fifth inning, and the Red Sox began their post-David Ortiz era by beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-3 in Monday's opener.

Reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello (1-0) gave up three runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five. Craig Kimbrel retired Starling Marte on a game-ending popup with two on for the save.

''That was awesome,'' Benintendi said. ''We're all excited to start playing games that actually matter. It was a fun experience.''
