It was a spirited try—but the Red Sox could not overcome one of the worst outings in the career of Clay Buchholz. The Orioles scored six times on the mercurial right-hander in the third inning, and Boston just could not make up enough ground. The Red Sox had a chance to win it in the ninth—loading the bases with just one out—but consecutive groundouts by Mike Napoli (RBI) and Mike Carp ended the Patriots' Day near-miss loss, 7-6.
