Don't take them lightly.
Now the Red Sox have to win on Wednesday night just to split the four game series.
Josh Reddick's third inning error opened the door for three Baltimore runs in the third and knocked Erik Bedard out of the game after throwing a mind-blowing 51 pitches in that inning.
Daniel Bard pitched a flawless seventh inning with a 5-4 lead, but put two on in the 8th, and Jonathan Papelbon got the second out, but gave up two straight hits, and Baltimore went on to a 7-5 win. Bard is now an appalling 2-9 on the season.
Once again, the last-place O's have at least split this series.
Only good news was that New York's win over Tampa Bay reduced the Red Sox Wild Card Magic Number to 7.
The Red Sox have also now gone an astounding 22 games without winning two straight. It's the longest such streak since 1994.
