Stephen Drew smacked a pair of home runs and drove in five runs as the Red Sox beat the Orioles 7-3 in Baltimore to even the series at a game apiece.

Ryan Dempster pitched 5.1 innings to pick up his sixth win of the season. He scattered six hits and walked a pair while striking out four. It was his first win in his last five starts.

Boston jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the third inning on an RBI ground out by Shane Victorino. Drew (pictured) extended the lead to 4-0 with his sixth home run of the season off Orioles starter Scott Feldman. His second home run of the game came in the top of the sixth after a review by the umpires.

Speaking of umpires, the Red Sox had numerous issues with the umpiring crew, including David Ortiz who took his frustration of being tossed out of the game out on a phone in the visiting team's dugout.

Drew and Mike Carp each had three hits; Shane Victorino hit his fifth home run of the year in the top of the seventh.
