Two Orioles home runs off Red Sox starter Felix Doubront helped lead Baltimore to a 4-3 lead over Boston and a tie for first place in the American League East with the Yankees.
Doubront (pictured) was charged with all 4 Baltimore runs on 7 hits over 7 innings; he struck out 10 and walked 1.
Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Aviles - remember them? - were back in the lineup for Boston. Ellsbury singled in 4 at bats; Aviles was 0-3. Both looked rusty from recent lack of use.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit his 25th home run of the year in the top of the 5th inning with a man on.
The Yankees were beaten by Toronto earlier in the day so the Orioles win put the teams in a 1st place tie in the AL East with 4 games to play. Jim Monaghan 9/29/2012 09:56:00 PM Tweet
