G106: Red Sox 5, Orioles 0

Red Sox - 102 000 020 - 5 10  1
Orioles - 000 000 000 - 0  5  0
Jon Lester (7-4-0-2-8, 99) threw seven shutout innings and David Ortiz went 4-for-4, including a two-run home run in the third inning.

It was Ortiz's second four-hit game of the season. (He went 4-for-5 on July 9.) Flo is now batting .329.

Ortiz also scored two runs. Three other Sox had two hits: Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. ... Napoli's double scored Shane Victorino in the first inning. Salty's two-run single in the eighth added some insurance.

The Yankees beat the Rays 6-5, so the Red Sox are back in first place. ... Boston plays Tampa Bay tomorrow in the make-up of Thursday's rainout.
