The Baltimore Orioles beat the Red Sox 6-3 behind Joe Saunders and some more home runs.


Orioles 4, Red Sox 3: Making Brooks proud


The O's used a few timely hits and some Brooks Robinson-esque defense to nail down a 1-run victory over the Red Sox, moving into a first-place tie in the AL East. Things just got real.
