BOSTON (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles scored six runs off Clay Buchholz in the third inning then held on to spoil Boston’s Patriots’ Day morning game a year after the Boston Marathon bombings with a 7-6 win over the Red Sox on Monday.
The Red Sox had a chance to win in the ninth when they loaded the bases with one out on a single by Brock Holt, a double by Dustin Pedroia and an intentional walk to David Ortiz. One run scored on Mike Napoli’s groundout to second, but Mike Carp grounded out to first as Tommy Hunter escaped with his fifth save.
The game began at 11:09 a.m., about an hour before Meb Keflezighi crossed the Boston Marathon finish line just over a mile away as the first American man to win the race since Greg Meyer in 1983.
