Sox beat O's 7-5

Tonight's game between the Orioles and the Red Sox wasn't your ordinary ballgame.

Through nine innings, the two teams combined to score 11 runs; walk 11 times; get 27 hits and use 13 different pitchers.

The Orioles battled tonight, but the Red Sox came through when it counted. The game was tied 4-4 in the seventh when the Sox brought in Victor Martinez to pinch-hit with the bases loaded.

It didn't take him long to unload the bases.

Victor Martinez gave the Red Sox a 7-4 lead and unlike the Orioles, the Sox wouldn't give it back.

Jason Berken looked good for a rookie facing a ballclub that hit six homeruns the night before, but the walks in the first killed him.

Dave Trembley had to use six different relievers to get through the last 3 2/3 innings.

Danys Baez gave up the three-run double to Martinez, but the first run that scored was credited to Matt Albers, who earned the loss in tonight's game.

A win tonight would have been huge for the Orioles so they could've carried that momentum into their three-game series against New York.

Chris Tillman will pitch for the Orioles Friday against the Yankees.
