Marte 2 HRs, 5 RBIs, Diamondbacks rout wobbling Red Sox 15-8

Expect more than just baseball at D-backs home opener

Expect more than just baseball at D-backs home opener

The Chase Field roof wasn't functioning properly, but the Arizona Diamondbacks' offense was fully functional in their first home game of the 2019 regular season.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are in for a double treat - they have their home opener on Friday night and it is against the Boston Red Sox, making a rare trip to Phoenix.

All of the runs wound up being earned in the fourth, but it was an annoying one nonetheless for a pitcher who is characteristically cool on the mound.

Alex Avila, a catcher who bats eighth in the lineup, added a home run in the eighth to give the Diamondbacks a 15-5 lead. His grand slam off reliever Brian Johnson came in a big sixth that also included a pinch-hit homer by Ildemaro Vargas, recalled earlier Friday when Jake Lamb was placed on the injured list. In his first start of the season against Seattle, he was tagged for four runs and didn't make it out of the third inning. Boston has yielded double-digit runs three times, and its starting rotation has given up 43 earned runs in 40⅓ innings.

The Red Sox are going to need their starters to be as elite as possible after suffering huge bullpen losses this offseason with the departures of Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly.

Zack Godley pitched 5 2/3 strong innings for the D-backs to get his first win of the season. Godley aided the rally with an RBI single.

Jones hit his fourth home run of the season as part of a two-run fifth, before the Diamondbacks sent 10 batters to the plate in the seven-run sixth. Rick Porcello gave up seven runs in 4 2/3 innings for the Red Sox, and he was not happy about it.

Godley went 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI.
