Orioles Come Back to Defeat Red Sox; Zach Britton & Crowds

For the second straight night, the Orioles have beaten the Red Sox, this time by a score of 5-4.

Usually, if you looked up the MLB Odds on this type of game in the past or listened to the talking heads on or, most fans would have picked the Red Sox to comeback and defeat the Orioles.

However, that was in the past.

The Orioles were tied at four after the Red Sox had a four-run eighth inning thanks to a RBI-single by Adrian Gonzalez followed by a three-run homer by Kevin Youkilis. The bullpen in the eighth inning – Jeremy Accardo, Clay Rapada and Koji Uehara – could not hold off the Red Sox.

I had an eerie feeling in the eighth inning that Boston was going to explode and become a factor in the Wednesday’s game. Their lineup is too strong and too good to be held back for two consecutive nights.

However, hope for Baltimore came in the eighth inning as Vladmir Guerrero plated in Derek Lee to break the tie.

Kevin Gregg – who has earned the ire of many fans over the past few weeks – earned his fourth save by pitching a perfect ninth inning for the second night in a row.

Uehara earned the win, his first of the year.

For the Orioles, Luke Scott provided some early offense with a two-run homer in the fourth inning and then Adam Jones followed up with a solo homer of his own. In the fifth inning, Brian Roberts plated in a run during the fifth inning to give Baltimore a 4-0 lead.
