G56: Red Sox 7, Orioles 3

Red Sox - 201 002 101 - 7  9  0
Orioles - 300 000 000 - 3  9  1
After Jackie Bradley had driven in two runs in the top of the first, Chris Sale had an uncharacteristic bottom half of the inning, giving up two doubles, a single, and a walk. The Orioles also pulled off a double steal and ended up scoring three runs.

That was all the runs Baltimore would get, however, as Sale reverted to form (6-6-3-1-9, 110) and the bats came alive in the later innings.

Andrew Benintendi (3-for-4) hit two solo home runs, drove in three runs, and scored three times. ... Mookie Betts scored twice. ... Benintendi and Betts each also walked once and stole a base.

Boston is now 2 GB the Yankees - who are next on the schedule. The Red Sox begin a three-game series in New York on Tuesday night.
