Sox lose first home opener since 2004

Sox lose first home opener since 2004

BREWERS 6, RED SOX 2

Star of the Game: Lyle Overbay, who entered the game with a lifetime .316 average at Fenway, drove in two runs on a ninth inning double to give the Brewers a 4-2 lead.

Red Sox Star: Will Middlebrooks homered, his first this season. He also walked and lined out hard to center field. This followed a two-hit day Thursday.

Streak Ended: The Sox dropped their home opener for the first time since 2004. Boston has lost just five of the past 22 home openers.

Peavy’s Line: Sox starter Jake Peavy gave up two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four in 6.0 innings.

Mujica Struggles: Reliever Edward Mujica surrendered four runs, all earned, on four hits (two doubles, two singles) in an ugly ninth inning.

Today’s Games: Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz vs. Milwaukee righty Wily Peralta, a 24-year-old who went 11-15 with a 4.37 ERA in 32 starts last year.

Gametime: at Fenway at 7:10 p.m.
