Pablo Sandoval injury: Red Sox third baseman day-to-day with right knee sprain

Moving over to the other side of the game, Wright was out looking for a big game after getting shelled by the Orioles just last week. He has been extremely impressive through his first four starts in 2017. He gave up two runs and six hits in five innings, recording a season-high nine strikeouts without walking a batter. The O's first baseman crushed a line drive to right field, but Betts made a diving play to his left to record the second out of the eighth. Do you want me to add you to the text?

Aquino, filling in as the No. 5 starter as the Orioles are short because of Chris Tillman being on the disabled list, enjoyed the experience. Showalter said. "I didn't know that". "It's an incredible feeling what I'm feeling right now". I just tried to make my pitches. Just like that, the Orioles had the lead.

Juan Nicasio (1-2) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief after Tyler Glasnow faltered with two outs in the fifth.

Mychal Givens pitched two ideal innings, Donnie Hart got two outs in the ninth and Darren O'Day finished for his first save.

The Orioles won, 2-0. He blanked the Orioles in the first three innings before everything fell apart in the fourth. "They hit mistakes. That's what makes them good". That came in the top of the third, after Xander Bogaerts reached on a one-out single. Offensively, Mark Trumbo leads Baltimore with 15 hits and six RBI while Adam Jones and Chris Davis have combined for 30 hits and 11 RBI.

He picked up a quality start - six innings, two earned runs and his first major league win.

Jackie Bradley Jr. provided the only offensive spark for Boston, including a colossal two-run shot. They are 1-for-17 with runners in scoring position in the series.

"On a night when we're scuffling to put points on the board, that four-run inning looms large", Boston manager John Farrell said. "We've chased some pitches down below the zone".

Orioles: Britton had an MRI on his left forearm and elbow. The Baltimore backup came into the game 0-for-12 but went 2-for-3. LHP David Price (elbow) participated in a long-toss session Sunday and will pitch a few simulated innings at Fenway Park on Monday.

As has ended up being the Red Sox way of late, they were able to get at least one runner on in each of the first five innings.

"When you're cleaned out beyond second base and the runner never held second base completely, to me, the rule failed tonight", Farrell said. Hector Neris gave up a leadoff home run to Garcia in the ninth and waited out a 24-minute rain delay before recording his second save in as many tries.
