G157: Orioles 9, Red Sox 1

Red Sox - 100 000 000 - 1  1  1
Orioles - 600 030 00x - 9 12  2
Boston's lone hit was a bunt single by Scott Posednik to begin the game. He scored an unearned run on Dustin Pedroia's sacrifice fly, giving the Red Sox an early lead which lasted only a few minutes.

Aaron Cook (1-5-6-3-0, 42) allowed a two-run homer to Chris Davis and a grand slam to Ryan Flaherty in the bottom of the first, and was pulled after walking the first two batters in the second.

The Yankees beat the Blue Jays 11-4, so New York stays 1 GA of Baltimore.

The Red Sox finish up their disappointing 2012 season on the road, with three games in Baltimore, followed by three in New York. How Boston plays over those six games will have a definite effect on who wins the AL East.

Obviously, the plan should be to lose three in a row, then win three in a row.
