David Ortiz hit a pair of home runs as the Red Sox topped the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 in 10 innings at Camden Yards on Friday night.

The first blast, in the top of the fourth inning, gave Ortiz his eighth season of at least 30 home runs and 100 runs batted in, moving him ahead of Ted Williams for the all-time Red Sox record. The second home run, a two-run shot, came in the top of the 10th inning and snapped a 3-3 tie.

Allen Webster started for the Red Sox going 5.1 innings. He allowed one run on seven hits and a walk while striking out three. Junichi Tazawa earned the win in relief and Edward Mujica picked up his seventh save of the year.

Ortiz led the Red Sox with three hits. Mookie Betts had two hits and Yoenis Cespedes hit his 22nd home run of the year in the fourth inning.

Ortiz now has 34 home runs and 102 runs batted in.
