A bloop and two blasts

The Red Sox wish they could have that short fly ball that Derrek Lee hit back.

They failed to catch that pop with one out in the fourth and that should have been an out. Instead, an out later, Luke Scott came up and blasted a Eutaw Street, two-run homer. Adam Jones followed with a solo shot that just made it out to left center.

If the Sox catch that ball, you can make a case the Orioles get no runs in that inning.

Scott’s blast was the 53rd onto Eutaw Street in the history of Camden Yards and 23rd hit by an Oriole. Scott now has five and that ties Rafael Palmeiro for most ever here.

Jones and Scott hit two in a row, the O’s first back-to-back homers of 2011.

Jones now has three homers and nine RBIs over his past eight games.
