• Victorino to miss Red Sox opener for back

    Summary of 7 articles · Updated Apr 22, 2013
    Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was held out for at least the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Royals with a back ailment. Farrell also didn't rule out having Victorino available for Game 2 on Sunday night. The Boston Red Sox had the emotion and a seven-game winning streak on their side. After that, the Red Sox will meet the newest member of the AL West, the Houston Astros, for the first time in a four-game set. The surging Sox might have been swept by Kansas City in Sunday's doubleheader, but they're still leading the American League East and they're getting a good challenge in a three-game series against the Oakland A's that begins Monday. Webster, who was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in August as part of the nine-player trade that sent Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto westward, will make his major league debut.
