Orioles - 000 200 022 - 6 11 0Matusz was dealing (7-2-0-3-8, 111), but the Sox did have a couple of scoring chances early on.

In the second, Bill Hall singled and Daniel Nava got HBP, but Gustavo Molina popped up a bunt to the pitcher, Marco Scutaro took a called third strike, and Darnell McDonald grounded to third. With one out in the fourth, Kevin Youkilis walked and went to third on Adrian Beltre's double. Then J.D. Drew struck out and Hall flied to center. (Yook's rally-killer spoiled the shutout.)
Lackey (7.1-8-4-1-7, 117) was good, except when he wasn't, and then he was as annoying as usual.
Mariano Rivera blew a save, but the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 7-6 in 10. The Rays beat the Twins 7-4. Boston falls to 1.5 GB, while Tampa Bay stays 2 GB.
