No, The Sox Didn't Lose The Season Series to The Orioles

But it could have happened if the Red Sox had dropped another to the hot Birds on Wednesday night. With John Lackey going, I thought it was a very real possibility, and a Baltimore sweep at Fenway loomed large.

But Lackey acquitted himself fine, allowing just one run in seven innings. David Ortiz hit a three-run shot, and Josh Reddick hit his home run of 2010, as the Sox cruised, 6-1.

They split the 18 games with Baltimore, 9-9. (A big reason the Sox are going home early, the record against the AL lightweights.)

From having visions of another World Series win in April, to just not losing a season series to a team that looked like a sure bet to drop 110 games back in May.

Time has a way of radically altering expectations sometimes.
