Benintendi hits two homers as Red Sox earn split in Baltimore

The 24-year-old from Valencia, Venezuela had a solid rookie season in 2015, going 10-6 with a 3.85 ERA in 21 starts, but was 3-7 with a 4.71 ERA in 20 starts last year in a season in which he also had knee issues. Benintendi drove in another run in the ninth to extend the Red Sox advantage to the 7-3 final. The Orioles have won three straight over the Sox now.

Here's how it all went down. "You look at all the arms they run out at you, it's a challenge".

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Price did a great job of mixing his pitches, especially the fastball and cutter. On the third hand, because you are apparently a mutant, he was hurt in spring and missed most of his preparation, so all normal avenues for forming expectations could pretty much be thrown out the window. Aside from Chris Sale, Rodriguez has been the best pitcher in the rotation all season and a welcomed surprise for a player that was expected to start the year in Triple-A. Baltimore finished with seven hits and left six on base. Fortunately, Price didn't spiral from there and got outs in the next three at bats to get out of the inning. 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. Deven Marrero replaced him. Jonathan Schoop made the Red Sox pay by ripping an RBI double to left field to give the O's a one-run lead.

It was ugly, and Sale was stuck with three runs, all earned. Asher also recorded a scoreless inning of relief in a 6-2 loss to the Red Sox on April 23.

- Blaine Boyer took the hill to begin the seventh. Boston's offense went into a bit of a cold spell over the next few innings, but they still worked the counts well enough to knock Bundy out after just five innings. Hardy struck out to end the inning.

The Red Sox will not need another starting pitcher in that spot until next Saturday, and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said before the game that young lefty Brian Johnson might get the call. If you're not hitting home runs, which the Orioles did not on Sunday even as it was surely home run weather, that's a tough way to score. Betts led off the inning with a double and moved over to third on a sacrifice bunt from Andrew Benintendi.

He entered last night's game with a 2.77 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 55.1 innings pitched, which makes his DL stint a huge loss. Tillman bounced a pitch in the dirt, prompting catcher Francisco Pena to attempt to pick off Mitch Moreland at third base. He pulled it to his left, sending a no-doubter toward the clouds in left field.

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

Betts is on a decent pace, to say the least.

Bundy is 3-3 with a 4.39 career ERA against the Red Sox. Drew Pomeranz will get the ball for Boston and will be opposed by New York's Masahiro Tanaka.
