The day began poorly for the Red Sox -- and got worse from there.

Trailing 3-0 early, the Red Sox were blown out by the Baltimore Orioles, 11-3, stretching their season-opening losing streak to three.

Garrett Richards had an abysmal debut, charged with seven runs before he could record an out in the third inning. Josh Taylor wasn't any better, allowing four runs in two-thirds of an inning.

J.D. Martinez had two hits including the first Red Sox homer of the season. Garrett Whitlock made his MLB debut and was a bright spot, blanking the O's over 3.1 innings while fanning five.
