Forever Boston Strong


The Boston Red Sox will play host to the Baltimore Orioles in the series finale on Patriots Day at Fenway Park.  The forecast isn’t exactly favorable, as rain is expected to impact the 2019 Boston Marathon and the Red Sox game, respectively.

Hector Velazquez will take the bump for the Red Sox as Alex Cora will employ the six starter approach for the contest. 

"We're going with six starters," manager Alex Cora said prior to Friday's game. "After the off day on Thursday we've played how many, 20-something in a row? So that's the last time we can actually give those guys a breather.” 

Hundreds of thousands of spectators are expected to be in Boston to watch the Marathon, while others will pack Fenway Park and watch the Sox. 

The first set of runners will kick off the 123rd Boston Marathon at 9:02 AM in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.  Velazquez will throw his first pitch against the O’s at 11:05 AM. 

The Sox will attempt to take three of four from the Orioles and improve they’re record to 7-10.  Marathon Monday is a special day, if you’ve had an opportunity to catch a Red Sox game on Patriots Day it’s an incredible day. 

Today also marks the anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings back in 2013.  Monday will mark the sixth anniversary, and it falls on the same day as the marathon. 

The Red Sox will honor the victims who perished on that day.  They’ll honor the victims with a moment of silence.  In the middle of the 4th inning, two Medal of Honor recipients will be honored by the club. 

While we want the Red Sox to get to 7-10, we shall never forget the lives lost from six years ago. We remember the victims, we remember Krystle Campbell, Lü Lingzi, Sean Collier and Martin Richard.

Monday, the city of Boston will once again Boston Strong and unite.  In the words of David Ortiz, “This is our f-king city. And nobody's going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong."
