Steven Wright tossed another gem but wasn't around by the time the Red Sox pushed across two runs in the top of the 12th inning to beat the Orioles 2-0 at Camden Yards.

Both Boston runs were courtesy of back-to-back sacrifice flies by Brock Holt and Jackie Bradley Jr. on a night when the offense just couldn't get untracked against Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy.

Wright threw 6.2 innings, shutting out Baltimore on four hits. He walked three and struck out five as he extended his scoreless innings streak to 22.2.

Heath Hembree was the winner in relief, with Craig Kimbrel recording his 21st save of the year.

Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts each had two hits in the win. Mookie Betts made his return to the lineup from the disabled list and had a single in five at bats.
