Last night, the Red Sox honored Boston Marathon bombing survivors before the game against the Baltimore Orioles. On the hill, the Red Sox' Jake Peavy would be making his fourth start, coming in with a 1.93 ERA after a fantastic start against the White Sox. Opposing him would be Ubaldo Jimenez, who has yet to pitch really well this season for his new team.
The Orioles got off to a fast start. On a Nelson Cruz home run, a single, a sacrifice fly, a David Lough ground-rule double, and another single, the Orioles held a five run lead by the sixth inning. Then the Red Sox had their hurrah. In the bottom of the sixth, Jonny Gomes hit a three-run home run, instilling life in Boston. In the next inning, the Red Sox tied the game on a David Ortiz single and Mike Napoli reaching on an error.
The Red Sox got the chance to win the game in the ninth. Fan interference took away a home run from Dustin Pedroia and put him on second base. Then, three batters later, Mike Carp lined out to left field. David Lough, the left fielder, threw an errant throw home, scoring Pedroia, and walking the Red Sox off in a comeback win.
Red Sox 6, Orioles 5
