Notes: The Royals won the first game today, 4-2 … Webster is 34-25 with a 3.38 ERA in 112 career games (86 starts) in the Dodgers and Red Sox farm systems … Ellsbury needs four stolen bases to reach 200 for his career … The Red Sox’ special home whites used this weekend with “Boston” on the front instead of the traditional “Red Sox” will be signed by the players and then auctioned to benefit The One Fund for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing … Webster is the third Red Sox player to make his MLB debut so far this season.
