Ryan Dempster shines in debut with Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — It was only two innings and just his opening game of spring training, but Ryan Dempster will take similar results in any start as he had Tuesday vs. the Cardinals in a 15-4 Red Sox loss.

Dempster accomplished just about everything he wanted in his first outing in a Red Sox uniform. He threw strikes (24 out of 33 pitches), got quick outs, and came away with the feeling that he’s ready to get through the six-start process before the regular season.
