Boston, MA (Sports Network) - Manny Machado launched a three-run homer to cap
a five-run ninth inning, as the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the Boston
Red Sox, 8-5, at Fenway Park.
Joel Hanrahan (0-1) was tasked with getting the final three outs for Boston,
which carried a 5-3 lead into the ninth.
Chris Davis opened the frame with a solo home run to center field. Hanrahan,
who was looking to nail down his 100th career save, retired the next two
batters before everything unraveled.
Ryan Flaherty singled and consecutive walks to Nolan Reimold and Nate McLouth
loaded the bases. The tying run scored on a wild pitch and Machado put
Baltimore in front with his drive off Hanrahan to the Green Monster seats.
Boston went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the ninth, with Jim Johnson earning his
third save of the season. Darren O'Day (1-0) was awarded the victory after
pitching a perfect bottom of the eighth.
