Blow For Blow

Red Sox 8, Orioles 5 : Blow for Blow – The Red Sox homer 3 times, including the 200th career HR by J.D. Martinez as they match the Orioles homer for homer until pulling away late to win on @ Camden Yards again. Martinez’ 2-run shot (#5) in the 1st would mark his milestone HR & Xander Bogaerts homers (#7) in the 4th to put Boston back ontop. Rio Ruiz homers in the 1st (#3) for the O’s to tie it & Hanser Alberto (#2) homers in the 4th to tie it again but Mitch Moreland puts the game away w/ a 3-run shot (#10) in the 5th. The O’s cut the lead to 1 w/ 2 runs in the 7th but Boston adds some insurance late & Matt Barnes works the 9th to close it out. Baltimore will look to win the series tonight.
