orioles, red sox

Jordan Westburg had two hits, including a three-run home run, and the visiting Baltimore Orioles overcame a five-run deficit to defeat the Boston Red Sox 7-5 on Wednesday night.

Baltimore trailed 5-4 until Westburg’s home run off reliever Chris Martin (1-1) drove in Ryan Mountcastle and Cedric Mullins with two outs in the seventh. It was his second home run of the season.

The Orioles began their comeback by scoring three runs in the sixth before Westburg’s blast capped a four-run seventh.

Mike Baumann (1-0) picked up the win by striking out three batters in the sixth around a one-out single. Craig Kimbrell retired the Red Sox in order in the ninth to earn his second save.

Triston Casas had two hits, including a two-run home run, for Boston. Casas hit his second home run of the season with two outs in the fifth inning to give the Red Sox a 5-0 lead.

Boston starter Kutter Crawford pitched five scoreless innings. He allowed two hits, walked four and struck out six.

Baltimore’s Jackson Holliday, the No. 1 pick in the 2022 draft, made his major league debut. Holliday, 20, played second base, batted ninth and went 0 for 4 with an RBI groundout in the sixth.

Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third, when Jarren Duran showed his speed by scoring from first base on a Tyler O’Neill single.

Connor Wong’s two-out single drove in Casas and Romy Gonzalez to extend Boston’s lead to 3-0 in the fourth. Casas and Gonzalez each singled earlier in the inning.

After the Casas home run increased the lead to 5-0, Baltimore scored three runs against reliever Isaiah Campbell in the sixth. Colton Cowser’s single drove in Mountcastle and Mullins. Then, after Westburg’s double put runners on second and third, Holliday’s grounder to first brought in Cowser.

The Orioles made it 5-4 when Ryan O’Hearn raced home from third on Martin’s wild pitch, two batters before Westburg bomb.
