Workman Bedazzles Baltimore; Sox Win, 1-0

This is just what the rotation doctor ordered. Brandon Workman overcame two rain delays to hurl 1-hit ball for 6 2/3 innings—helping the Red Sox top the Orioles, 1-0 at Camden Yards. Mike Napoli's RBI single was all Boston's pitching needed, as the Red Sox won for the first time this year when scoring three runs or less. Andrew Miller, Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara (who gave up the only other Baltimore hit of the night) finished things off. Boston completes the series in Charm City tonight, then they return home for seven games against Cleveland (4) and Minnesota (3).
