Red Sox Drop Orioles, 2-1
The Boston Red Sox had to overcome a fine performance from Baltimore pitcher Gerrit Cole to grab a 2-1 win at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Cole allowed 2 runs over 8 innings. Francis Martes, the winning pitcher, is now 6-3. He went 5 innings, allowing 1 run on 4 hits, while fanning 6 and walking 3. With the win, Boston pushed its record to 88-71.

Boston used a well-timed hit by Evan Longoria to capture the win. The third baseman socked a run-scoring double in the top of the fifth inning to put the Red Sox ahead, 2-1. Though it was his only hit in 4 at-bats, it was important.

"I just tried to make good contact," said Longoria.
