Jackie Bradley Jr led the way as Boston Red Sox snapped a three-game skid with a 5-1 victory over Texas Rangers at Fenway Park.

Bradley excelled both in offence, hitting a pair of two-out RBI singles, and in defence, sliding to rob a hit from Donnie Murphy in the second innings and making a spectacular catch to deny JP Arencibia in the third.

He told MLB.com: "I'm happy to put some runs on the board for the pitcher. It's definitely a start. It's a work in progress and I'm continuously trying to get better every single day."

The retiring Derek Jeter hit a double in New York Yankees' two-run fifth inning as the hosts at Yankee Stadium clinched a 4-2 win over Baltimore Orioles.

Yadier Molina helped St Louis Cardinals win their home opener at the Busch Stadium with a three-run double off Tony Cingrani to down Cincinnati Reds 5-3.

Elsewhere, Los Angeles Angels beat Houston Astros 9-1 while Kansas City Royals were 4-2 winners over Tampa Bay Rays.

TColorado Rockies were comfortable 8-1 victors against Chicago White Sox and Oakland Athletics claimed an 8-3 success at the expense of Minnesota Twins.
