Revamped Red Sox begin title quest vs. Hamels, Phils
- Updated: April 2, 2015
The Red Sox and Phillies will resume a rivalry that began when they faced each other in the 1915 World Series with an Opening Day matchup at Citizens Bank Park on Monday. A more recent connection between the franchises centered on Phillies ace Cole Hamels. Despite spring-long speculation that Boston might trade for the left-hander, he remains in red pinstripes and will start against Boston’s Clay Buchholz. First pitch is set for 3:05 p.m.
