It's OK to admit it...there's a part of you that is actually pulling for the Orioles to take the American League Eastern Division from the Yankees...even if it means the Red Sox have to lose to Baltimore in the process.
So while the Yankees beat the A's 2-1 on a 10th-inning home run by Russell Martin, the Red Sox lost to Baltimore 4-2 at Fenway to keep the O's a game behind New York.
Jon Lester took the loss, the first of his career against Baltimore; he allowed all 4 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks over 7 innings.
Pedro Ciriaco, Scott Podsednik, and Daniel Nava each had 2 hits for Boston. Jim Monaghan 9/22/2012 09:16:00 AM Tweet
