Rich Hill (pictured) threw a two-hit, complete-game shutout and David Ortiz drove in three runs as the Red Sox clubbed the Orioles 7-0 Friday night at Fenway Park.

Hill struck out ten for the third consecutive game and became the first Red Sox pitcher to throw a shutout since Clay Buchholz in August 2014. He walked just one and lowered his ERA to 1.17. Hill faced 30 batters and threw first-pitch strikes to 25 of them.

Mookie Betts saved the shutout with an amazing catch against the bullpen wall in right field for the final out of the game.

Ortiz and Xander Bogaerts each had three hits for Boston. Brock Holt had two hits and a pair of RBI's.
