G150: Red Sox 10, Orioles 8 (11)

Red Sox - 000 160 100 02 - 10 12  2
Orioles - 131 120 000 00 -  8 11  0
The Red Sox rallied from a 6-1 deficit, tying the game at 8-8 on Xander Bogaerts's home run in the seventh, and winning the game in extras on Andrew Benintendi's bases-loaded single in the eleventh inning.

Boston is 14-3 in extra innings this season. The only Red Sox team to have more extra-inning wins in a season is the 1943 team, who went 15-14-2.

Mookie Betts drove in four runs. ... In addition to his home run, Bogaerts walked three times and scored three runs. ... Doug Fister had nothing: (2-4-5-5-0, 50). The Red Sox used nine relief pitchers.

In the fourth inning, Dustin Pedroia fouled a ball off the plate that bounced up and hit him in the face. Pedroia left the game with what was described as a nasal contusion.

AL East: Boston's lead remained three games as the Yankees beat the Twins 2-1.
