Orioles Roll Past Red Sox, 9-1

Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Ty Wigginton collected three hits and launched a three-run homer as Baltimore downed Boston, 9-1, in the second of three between the clubs at Fenway Park.

Luke ScottFelix Pie and Rob Andino added RBI and Adam Jones finished 3-for-4 and scored twice for theOrioles, who have taken the first two games in the series and have won six of their last eight.

Brad Bergesen (8-10) scattered five hits and one run over six innings for the win.

Daniel Nava drove in the lone run for the Red Sox, who slid to their fourth loss in five.

Scott Atchison (2-3) allowed three runs on three hits while recording one out in the seventh to take the loss.Clay Buchholz got the start and allowed one unearned run on four hits over six full frames.

"For the most part, I felt pretty good," said Buchholz. "The deeper I went into the game, though, I got deeper into counts. You don't want to give them more chances like that."

Baltimore took the lead in the seventh off Atchison. Cesar Izturis singled but was erased on a Brian Robertsfielder's choice, then Nick Markakis singled ahead of a three-run blast from Wigginton.

"My goal was to hit a fly ball -- when I hit it I knew it was deep enough for (Roberts) to tag, but then I thought it might have a chance to go out, and it did," said Wigginton.

It was a 5-1 advantage for the visitors in the eighth as Jones hit a leadoff double, moved up on a groundout and came in on a sacrifice fly from Andino.

Roberts and Markakis singled to start the ninth then Roberts came home on Adrian Beltre's wild throw to first after scooping up a Wigginton grounder. Scott's single brought in Markakis, then a wild pitch plated Wigginton for an 8-1 game. Pie's grounder later in the inning scored Scott for an eight-run Baltimore lead.

Matt Albers closed out the victory with a scoreless home ninth.

Jed Lowrie's one-out double in the second turned into Boston's only run of the game when Nava singled him home with two down.

The O's knotted the game in the sixth as Jones singled with two outs, then Marco Scutaro's fielding error on a Pie ball managed to plate him.
