CLEVELAND (AP) — Grady Sizemore says Cleveland still feels like home to him, even though he now plays for the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox opened a series against the Indians on Monday night. Sizemore started in right field during his first game as a visitor at Progressive Field.

Sizemore was a three-time All-Star while playing nearly eight seasons for the Indians. He signed as a free agent with Boston in January after missing two full seasons following micro-fracture surgery on his right knee and other medical issues.

The 31-year-old Sizemore is hitting .232 with two home runs and 14 RBIs. He says he’s surprised at how well he’s held up after being out for so long.
