Going (Camden) Yard Twice

At first, it appeared that Andrew Miller would not make it out of the early innings. And even though he ended up going 5 2/3, he did walked six batters—including three straight in one inning. Then again, he only gave up two hits, and got the victory and the shutout win over the increasingly woeful O's. The 4-0 win gives the Sox their 59th win in their 96th game. They are playing at a blistering .679 clip since their 2-10 start.

Jacoby Ellsbury went yard twice and Adrian Gonzalez dispelled all the All-Star voodoo notions with four hits. The Sox now have an off-day on Thursday and begin a series at Fenway against the Mariners on Friday night.
