Eric Hosmer hit an RBI double in the sixth inning to lead the hosts Boston Red Sox to a 4–3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday.
Alex Verdugo and Tommy Pham hit an RBI double with Red's Sox. He hit five doubles for the Red Sox to take the losing skid in four games.
The one-game "series" victory was Boston's first win in his 13th set (1-11-1) against his League East opponents in the Americans this season. The one-off game was the result of an interruption in the owner's work prior to the season and some changes to the schedule.
Terin Bavra ripped his triple off his two runs and scored on his RBI his single off Austin Hayes of the Orioles. The Orioles suffered his second loss in their last nine games.
Dean Kramer (4-4) walked out with two outs and he was ejected in the sixth inning after he threw his walk with two outs to J.D. Martinez. Nick Vespi came on and immediately surrendered Hosmer's RBI double to the center field triangle. The hit allowed Martinez to chug around the bases and give Boston a 4-3 lead.
Kremer suffered his third loss in four games after allowing his four runs on six hits in his 5 2/3 innings.
Austin Davis went ahead (2-1) and starter Josh retired the lone hitter he faced to relieve Winkowski.
Matt Barnes struck out his two-hitter in his seventh, and John Shriver retired the team in turn in his eighth. Schreiber avoided a two-out infield hit by Ramon Urias in the ninth to secure his fourth save of the season.
Xander, when his Bogaerts hit his 300th career double in the first inning, Boston burst out of the block and scored on Verdugo's double to center field.
The Red Sox took the advantage to his 3-0 in the third inning. Pham's left field double at his line played speedy Jalen Duran, and Pham later scored on Bogaerts' sacrifice fly.
Baltimore hit rookie Adley Lutschmann and Ryan Mountcastle's shots to right field off his triple off Bavra in his sixth inning. Bavra didn't stay at third base long and scored on Hayes' swing bunt to tie the score at 3-3.
