Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Marco Scutaro hit a two-run homer and Adrian Beltre notched a three-run blast in a six-run seventh inning as Boston rallied past Baltimore, 9-6, in the second of three from Camden Yards.
Four years to the day after being diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma, Jon Lester (15-8) picked up the win despite allowing eight hits and five runs over six innings. The left-hander did strike out 10, the fifth time he's done so in 2010.
Lester also improved to 13-0 all-time against Baltimore, surpassing the previous record of 12 wins in a row over the Orioles to start a career first set by former White Sox pitcher Red Faber -- who did it from 1914-16 against the St. Louis Browns.
Jonathan Papelbon posted a scoreless ninth for his 34th save.
