In their most impressive nine-inning offensive game recently - the aforementioned 11-1 win over Oakland at Fenway a week ago - eight of the nine players in the starting lineup recorded at least one hit (Hanley Ramirez was the lone Sox player with a goose-egg). "I'm amazed that someone who hasn't pitched in a game in almost seven weeks would come out with that kind of command and throw three or four pitches for strikes".

But the level of difficulty climbed several notches in the first three innings, and last night's game became a legitimate proving ground for what comes next.

Red Sox opponents combine for a.515 winning percentage, and while that is only marginally higher than the Yankees's figure, it still offers a slight upper hand to NY.

The scary moment happened in the fourth inning.

In the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers took down the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 to move within two games of the Colorado Rockies for the second wildcard spot in the National League. Xander Bogaerts led off with a game-tying home run.

According to Odorizzi, it wasn't necessarily a bad pitch, just the wrong one.

"I just tried my make pitch", Castro said. He was sitting dead-red. "But I didn't and he didn't". Baltimore has won six of the last 10 meetings and six of the games have gone under the total. Jackie Bradley Jr. was 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs to provide the offense. Eduardp Rodriguez gave up three runs (two earned) in 5 2/3 innings to take the loss.

Evan Longoria drove in the Rays' first two runs with singles in the first and fifth innings.

TRAINER'S ROOM - Red Sox: RF Mookie Betts left the game in the fifth inning with a right thumb contusion.

Pedroia has been limited by knee problems throughout the season, missing virtually all of August with two separate trips to the disabled list.

Alex Colome pitched the ninth for his 45th save. Pedroia will return to 2B in Baltimore on Monday night.

He limited the Orioles to two runs in seven innings August 27 and has a 4.24 ERA in 10 career encounters (nine starts) with Baltimore.

Gausman has been the Orioles' second-best starter in recent weeks, behind Dylan Bundy.
