After a two-hour-plus rain delay, Boston came out of the gate to score four first-inning runs -- three coming on Jason Varitek's three-run triple -- to give Kason Gabbard a win in his first start of the season. The southpaw was strong, going five-plus innings, allowing just two runs and one free pass.
