The Red Sox' 13 -game winning streak over the Baltimore Orioles came to an end when Baltimore won, 4-3, at Camden Yards last night. Erik Bedard pitched seven strong innings to earn the win. (I have Bedard in one of my fantasy teams and kept him on the bench last night after the beating the Sox gave him in Boston a couple of weeks ago. Oh well.)
Old friend Kevin Millar hit a two-run homer to give the Orioles a 2-1 lead off Tim Wakefield. They added two more before David Ortiz hit a two-run homer off Chris Ray in the ninth to make the score closer. Bedard just shut the Sox down, allowing only two hits and one first-inning run.
The Red Sox now head to Philadelphia to start the interleague series with the Phillies on Friday. I am now going to the game on Saturday night instead of Sunday. At least I'll get to see Josh Beckett pitch that night, instead of seeing Lenny DiNardo again, who goes on Sunday.
