Manny Machado's one-out double in the top of the third inning drove in a pair of runs and helped lift the Orioles to a 3-2 win over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Boston took two of three in the series.

Jon Lester lacked sharpness, but pitched six innings giving up three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox could only manage a pair of runs off Orioles starter Chris Tillman who earned his fifteenth win of the season.

Boston scored single runs in the bottom of the second on an RBI single by Stephen Drew (pictured) and a Shane Victorino home run in the sixth.
