G154: Red Sox 5, Orioles 3 (10)

Red Sox - 000 210 000 2 - 5  9  1
Orioles - 001 000 200 0 - 3 10  3
David Ortiz's second home run of the night - a two-run blast in the tenth inning (his 34th of the year) - lifted Boston to victory.

Ortiz and Yoenis Cespedes hit back-to-back shots in the fourth. Ortiz's fourth-inning dong gave him 100 RBI for the season, making 2014 his eighth season with at least 30 homers and 100 RBI for the Red Sox. It's the most in franchise history, topping Ted Williams's seven seasons.
