Orioles 6, Red Sox 2: 1 out of 3 ain't great, but it's better than being swept.

The Orioles FINALLY win in Fenway!

Didn't get to watch this game, so I will crib from the Sports Network Recap:

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with a homer and finished with three RBI and scored twice to help the Baltimore Orioles salvage the finale of a three-game set and beat the Boston Red Sox, 6-2, to snap an 11-game slide at at Fenway Park.

Nolan Reimold also went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored for the Orioles, who snapped a five-game slide and won in Boston for the first time since July 11, 2008. Felix Pie and Ty Wigginton each had an RBI for the visitors.

David Hernandez (3-2) was solid on the hill, going seven innings and yielding a run on five hits with two strikeouts to get the win.

The O's host KC at OPACY for a 4-game series starting tomorrow night. We'll likely get a chance to see former Orioles "aces" Sidney Ponson and Bruce Chen. Oh, JOY!
