Vazquez, just 1-for-1 on the season coming in, matched his career high in hits and capped his big night with a two-run triple, the second triple of his career, in the eighth inning.
He had also never won a game at Fenway Park before Tuesday.
"Things clicked in warmups today and I just felt really good out there", Pomeranz told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Jonny Miller. "I've answered questions", Farrell said.
Coming off a wildly inconsistent spring training in which he left one start with triceps tightness and finished on the disabled list because of a forearm strain, Drew Pomeranz gave the Red Sox few reasons to be optimistic.
For someone who claims to be sick of hearing all about the highly contagious flu that has run through the Boston Red Sox clubhouse over the past two weeks, Buck Showalter can't seem to stop talking about it. "They go ahead and score three that inning". Bundy pitched 6 1-3 innings, allowing three runs and seven hits.

Asked if he was trying to needle the Red Sox, Showalter said, "That's ridiculous". And for the first time since March, lefthander Drew Pomeranz took the mound against big-league hitters. But he provided them more than they could have hoped for last night, shoving 95-mph heaters in and around the zone for the first few innings then settling in around 90-91 miles per hour with a blurry curveball that the O's barely could touch.
"I was letting it fly out there a little bit". "It didn't matter if I was throwing 90 like I was at the end or 95". They would have been great plays had we made them, but it just turned into ugly baseball after I didn't make that double play. "I didn't know that", Showalter said. But Pomeranz got out of it and retired 12 straight batters before Adam Jones doubled with one out in the sixth inning. Boston.com readers get a 2-week free trial.
It was the kind of performance that was unexpected from the lefty, but a performance the Red Sox could learn to get accustomed to as the season progresses.

Ubaldo Jimenez gets the nod for the O's in game 2, and is 0-0 with a 10.38 ERA and 5 strikeouts this season.
