Alex Cora had a good game for a change. Dustin Pedroia had a great game as usual (MVP, anyone?). And Orioles pitcher Jim Miller couldn't have had a worse day. He got run-over in the bottom of the 9th, which ended with two successful bunts to advance Alex Cora home for the winning run. Adding insult to injury, no outs were recorded in the bottom of the 9th, and Jim Miller's throw to home to get Cora was off the mark. The Sox have swept Baltimore. Last week's painful loss to the Yankees is all but forgotten.
The Red Sox improve to 83-57.
Final score - Baltimore 4, Red Sox 5
