The Red Sox appeared to be less-than-sharp in a 6-5 loss to the Orioles on Saturday night at Camden Yards in a game that saw multiple lead changes.

Despite the loss, Boston clinched home field through the playoffs thanks to Seattle's 7-5 win over Oakland earlier in the day.

Jon Lester (pictured, courtesy of gave up four of the Baltimore runs on nine hits and a pair of walks. He struck out four in five innings of work. The loss went to Junichi Tazawa in relief.

Boston batters had fourteen hits, led by Daniel Nava's four. Dustin Pedroia had three hits and pushed his batting average to .301 on the season.
