Red Sox Vs. Orioles Final Score: Chris Tillman dominates in 9-1 rout of Boston

The Orioles took the first game of their series against the Red Sox in incredibly quick fashion as Chris Tillman one-hit the Red Sox in a 9-1 blowout that came in well under three hours.

The Sox, surprisingly, would strike first. Scott Podsednik, the first batter of the game, would single on a bunt ground ball. Keep in mind that it was a bunt, we'll come back to that later. Either way, Podsednik made it to second on an error, third on a sacrifice bunt, and then home on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly to put the Sox ahead 1-0.

It was all dramatically downhill from there. Aaron Cook gave up a leadoff hit, a two-run homer, and then after getting two outs in the first, proceeded to load the bases and surrender a grand slam to Ryan Flaherty. Just like that the game went from 1-0 in favor of the Red Sox to 6-1 Orioles.

Christ Tillman, meanwhile, went full-on dominant against the Red Sox lineup. He'd allow a walk in the third, another in the fourth...and that was it. No runs, no hits, no nothing. Whether he knew it or not, Scott Podsednik's bunt single broke up a no-hitter.

The other side of that, of course, is that there was no coming back for the Red Sox, and sure enough that was the case. Alfredo Aceves coughed up a few more in the middle innings, but it was all extracurricular by that point, with the Orioles already having established a lead that was not to be broken.
