Diamondbacks lose 11th road game; Thursday's game time moved

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz homered, Dustin Pedroia scored three runs and Clay Buchholz had another solid start to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 6-3 victory over Arizona last night.

That sent the Diamondbacks to their 11th consecutive road loss.

Buchholz allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk, striking out eight in 5-and-two-thirds innings. Game 2 of the three-game series is later today in Boston.

The Boston Red Sox want to give fans a better chance to see a memorable doubleheader.

With the Boston Celtics set to play Game 7 of the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers tomorrow, the Red Sox have shifted the starting time of their game against the Diamondbacks at Fenway Park to 3:10 p.m. PDT.

The team says that'll give fans a better chance to see the Celtics and Lakers when they tip off at 6 p.m. PDT.
