The Orioles dropped the Red Sox in their weekend series opener on Friday and stayed a game behind the Yankees in the AL East. Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester lost for the first time in his 21 career starts against Baltimore. He allowed 4 runs on 8 hits over 7 innings of work. With the game tied at 2 in the 6th, Matt Wieters drove in his 3rd run of the game to break the tie, and Mark Reynolds would add an RBI later in the inning for insurance. In the 9th, Jim Johnson saved his league leading 46th game of the season to secure the 4-2 victory.
