Drew Pomeranz (pictured) somehow managed to throw 34 pitches in the top of the first and not allow a run, two Orioles players were thrown out, no one tried to hit Manny Machado, and Marco Hernandez managed to injure himself while making an error at third base.

And...oh yeah...the Red Sox won 4-2 on Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

Pomeranz went 5.1 innings to improve to 3-1, scattering five hits and walking a pair while striking out seven.

Other than two inherited runners who scored while Heath Hembree was on the mound, the bullpen delivered a solid performance with Craig Kimbrel striking out the side in the ninth for his tenth save.

The Red Sox opened in the scoring in the bottom of the second inning on an RBI single by Josh Rutledge, the first of his two RBI's.

In the fourth, Chris Young doubled home a run, Rutledge plated another on a fielder's choice and Dustin Pedroia drove the last run in with a sacrifice fly.

Both Baltimore runs scored in the top of the sixth inning.

Orioles starting pitcher Kevin Gausman was ejected in the second inning after plunking Xander Bogaerts with a curve ball; Adam Jones was thrown out for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the fifth inning.
