David Lough's throwing error on Mike Carp's fly ball to left field off Orioles reliever Darren O'Day in the bottom of the 9th inning allowed Dustin Pedroia to score the winning run as the Red Sox came from behind with a 6-5 win over Baltimore at Fenway Park.

With one out in the bottom of the 9th, Pedroia hit a double high off the Green Monster that just missed being a home run. David Ortiz was intentionally walked, and Mike Napoli was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Jake Peavy endured his roughest outing of the season, allowing 5 runs on 10 hits and 4 walks in 5.2 innings. He gave up 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning and single runs in the 5th and 6th innings as the Red Sox fell behind 5-0.
