The Baltimore Orioles slammed five home runs - four of them off Boston starter Steven Wright - to beat the Red Sox 12-5 at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

Wright (pictured) was torched for six runs in the first inning. You knew things might not go well when he hit the first batter, wild-pitched him to second and then gave up an RBI double to Manny Machado.

That was just the start.

Mark Trumbo drove in Machado with a one-out single, and then the home runs started coming.

In bunches.

In fact, you will be excused if it reminded you of a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Andrew Benintendi put the Sox on the board with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the third inning and Boston added three more in the fourth on a run-scoring single by Xander Bogaerts and a two-run homer by Pablo Sandoval.

Bogaerts delivered another RBI single in the fifth. He led the team with three hits.

Mitch Moreland doubled in his sixth straight game; Dustin Pedroia extended his hitting streak to eight games.
