Wrong 'Em Arroyo. Baltimore Bops Brandon. Box.
Baltimore  402 010 201 - 10  14  1

Boston 000 200 015 - 8 10 0
In 2+ innings, Brandon Arroyo was smacked around by the Orioles, allowing 6 runs and 7 hits. Miguel Tejada had two hits and 3 RBI before leaving with a minor muscle strain in his lower right leg in the bottom of the fourth. Tejada, Jay Gibbons and BJ Surhoff each hit two-run homers and Javy Lopez went 3-3 with two doubles. Baltimore starter Rodrigo Lopez tossed three perfect innings with three strikeouts. ... The Red Sox closed the gap with five runs in the ninth, thanks to Andy Dominique's three-run double and RBI doubles by Kelly Shoppach and Jeremy Owens. Tim Hamulack threw 2 scoreless innings in relief of Arroyo.

Boston made its first cuts, sending infielder Jesus Medrano, catcher Jeff Bailey, and pitchers Ed Yarnall and Paul Rigdon to minor league camp. Pitcher Bryan Hebson was optioned to Pawtucket.
