Buchholz started off sharp for Boston but ran into trouble in the top of the 3rd inning giving up 5 straight hits before an out was recorded. He was charged with 6 runs on 7 hits in 2.1 innings; he walked 1 and struck out 1.
The Red Sox cut the 6-0 Baltimore lead in half with 3 in the bottom of the 5th inning. Jackie Bradley Jr. and Dustin Pedroia sandwiched RBI doubles around a Brock Holt sacrifice fly. David Ross's 1st home run of the season in the bottom of the 7th brought the Sox to within 2 at 6-4.
The Orioles scored in the top of the 8th to make it 7-4; Mike Napoli led off the bottom of the frame with his 4th home run of the season to bring the Baltimore lead back to 2.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
