"Tonight, [there was] maybe a little bit more power than anticipated", said Farrell.

Later in his meeting with the media, Showalter was asked if he's trying to needle the Red Sox? It was still coming out how it needed to come out.

Christian Vazquez added a two-run triple in the eighth, capping off a 4-for-4 game, as the Red Sox tagged Baltimore pitchers for 15 hits and had back-to-back three-run innings in the seventh and eighth to blow the game open. Farrell said he only talked about his players having the flu because he was asked and had to explain why they weren't at the park. But I think we can all agree that things could be a lot worse to begin the season, given all the pieces they've been missing. We bunched a number of hits together late.

Pablo Sandoval had a sacrifice fly in the second and Pedroia had one in the fifth off Dylan Bundy (1-1), who was strong through the first six innings.

Instead, Chris Young reached and Vazquez followed with a single to load the bases.

Pedroia would score a run of his own after Andrew Benintendi drove him in on an RBI double to put Boston up 5-1.

The Orioles had a threat in the second inning on a single by Welington Castillo and double by Trey Mancini with one out.

"No, I don't think it would", Showalter said. "I knew Darren was going to get the ground ball, and I just missed it". It just kind of unraveled. "It all started with that routine double play".

Tillman started an extended spring training game Tuesday, lasting two innings and coming out of it with no discomfort.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter quipped before the game that the Red Sox weren't alone in battling the flu, they just publicized it, but the O's were the only ones looking sick in this one.

Had the Red Sox been 100 percent this season and were a losing ball club, there's no doubt Farrell would be getting dragged to Logan airport by every Twitter-GM and sports-radio caller in town. "So nobody really wants to hear somebody else complain about it".

Showalter said here at Fenway Park yesterday that the Orioles also are dealing with the flu but "have done a good job not broadcasting it to the world". Bradley worked out Tuesday and said he felt great, but will let the knee recover fully before returning to the lineup. "But I appreciate you trying to go down that road".

Orioles: Send RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (0-0, 10.38 ERA) out for his second start as Baltimore wraps up its two-day visit to Boston. Steven Wright gets the call for Boston and is 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season.

Pomeranz held Baltimore to just four hits in the game and carried a shutout into the 7th inning.
