Homer-Happy Orioles Beat Back Red Sox, 5-3

Drew Pomeranz had eight days of rest before last night's start. Based on the results (an eventual 5-3 loss), let's get him in there tonight! The lefty gave up five runs in the second inning (including two HRs) and he was gone before recording an out in the third. Bad outing. No biscuit. Boston tried to come back—scoring twice on bases-loaded walks against Dylan 'Don't Call Me Ted' Bundy. But it was too little, too late—despite a later solo blast by Xander Bogaerts. Travis Shaw had three hits in the loss, and Dustin Pedroia continued his chase for the AL batting title with two more hits. But this one was petty much over early—and now The Carmine Hose hold a two-game edge on both Toronto and Baltimore.
