The first inning of Saturday’s game was absolutely wild, and it was the first time an inning like that has happened since, well, before I was born. (Bryan Hoch; MLB.com)

Granted, the runs explosions shouldn’t be too surprising given the dimensions and the weather. (Patrick Dunne; NBC Boston)

Prior to Saturday’s game, the Red Sox lost another pitcher to the IL with Brian Johnson being diagnosed with a non-baseball related injury. (Rob Bradford; WEEI)

Speaking of the pitching, Saturday’s game indicated there are still plenty of problems that need solving. (Peter Abraham; Boston Globe)
