Benintendi hits 2 HRs to help Red Sox beat Orioles 7-3

Eduardo Rodriguez was blasted by the Orioles Thursday

Before E-Rod started last night's game against the Orioles, he slipped and fell in the bullpen. Chicago (25-27) are riding a season-worst six-game losing streak and are in danger of dropping their seventh with John Lackey (4-5, 5.18 ERA) on the mound against Cardinals (26-25) right-hander Lance Lynn (4-2, 2.93 ERA).

"We went to seven pitchers in the 'pen", Showalter said. "It happened again, so I just got to wait and see what the plan is after seeing the doctor", Rodriguez said Friday. In his 78.0 innings and 6-2 record this year, Sale has a nice 2.77 ERA with 110 Ks and 16 BBs.

The Red Sox now have Chris Sale, Rick Porcello, David Price and Drew Pomeranz in their rotation. The Orioles responded in the bottom half on a single by Chris Davis that scored Joey Rickard and Manny Machado, who advanced on a double steal.

"The game was about not being able to do much against one of the best pitchers in the game", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. The left-hander, who allowed two runs on three hits in eight innings May 2, gave up three runs on six hits in six innings.

The Orioles pitchers struggled to handle Andrew Benintendi as the Red Sox left fielder went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBIs and a walk. He left with a 4-3 lead but picked a no-decision.

The New York Yankees lead the third place Orioles by 3.5 games in the AL East. Boston is 1.5 games ahead of the Orioles.

Netherlands previously held the record with 103 consecutive quarters before the recession of 2008. The Reserve Bank expected growth would return to more positive territory in the next two years.

An inning later, Benintendi earned the first multi-homer game of his career with a solo shot off Mike Wright that boosted the lead to 6-3.

The next time the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox meet, summer will be winding down and football season will nearly be here. He has pitched in 10 games versus Boston, more than against any other team. The Triple-A Pawtucket starter still could be the choice to replace injured Eduardo Rodriguez in the big league rotation later this week. Bundy hung a curveball right over the heart of the plate and Hanley did not miss this one, hitting his first home run since May 20 and his second since May 2.

But it was Benintendi who tied the game with a solo home run in the third inning, snapping an 80-at-bat homer drought.

A starting pitching battle between Chris Tillman and Chris Sale might have sounded like a pitcher's duel last season, but this year it sounds more like "reverse lock" for the Orioles, if you believe in that. He was placed there May 30 with a left wrist sprain.

Alec Asher gave them 6 1/3 good innings in a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox on Friday.
