The Red Sox apparently have some decisions to make regarding Joe Kelly.

Once again the hard-throwing righty came up short in Boston's 6-4 loss to the Orioles on Tuesday night in the opening game of their three-game series at Fenway Park.

Kelly lasted just 3.2 innings, charged with five runs on eight hits and two walks. The big blow was David Lough's three-run homer in the top of the second inning.

Boston scored single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings on an RBI-ground out by Brock Holt and run-scoring singles by Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez (pictured).

Dustin Pedroia drove in the final Red Sox run with a double in the bottom of the ninth.

Sandoval led Boston with three hits; Ramirez had a pair.

After the game, manager John Farrell would not commit to having Kelly make his next scheduled start.
