Red Sox Vs. Orioles: Jarrod Saltalamacchia's Homer Leaves Sox Just One Run Back After Six

The Red Sox have pulled within a run of the Baltimore Orioles, and now trial just 3-2 after six innings.

Kyle Weiland has done exactly what he needed to do after getting off to a poor start. Pounding the lower-half of the zone, and keeping the Orioles of the basepaths in the last three innings as a result. He’s thrown 100 pitches, so it seems likely his night is done, but he’ll leave with a quality start, if not a win.

The Sox have figured out Jeremy Guthrie some, managing to put five men on base in the last few innings, but only mounted one scoring attack—that being Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s two-run homer that just cleared the right-field wall with one down in the fifth. Boston still trails by one run, but there’s still a few innings to go, and most importantly, the Orioles bullpen can’t be too far away. That tends to mean good things for opposing offenses.
