BOSTON -- Buck Showalters bullpen had been depleted and Baltimores five-run lead had disappeared. Then, as they started their 30th inning in a 30-hour span, the AL East-leading Orioles pulled out another victory. "Thats the kind of game that the good teams win," Showalter said after the Orioles beat Boston 7-6 in 12 innings Sunday. "Its so easy to say, Boy, it wasnt meant to be today, instead of making it happen." A day after a day-night doubleheader that already taxed his pitching staff, Showalter watched his bullpen give up five runs in the seventh to force extra innings. In the 12th, David Lough hit a leadoff triple and scored on J.J. Hardys single to give Baltimore its sixth win in seven games. "A leadoff triple like that, especially in the 12th inning, its good to see," said Brad Brach, who earned the victory with three innings of scoreless relief. "I was definitely relieved." Brach (4-0) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four, and Zach Britton got the last three outs for his 14th save. Showalter said first baseman Chris Davis, who has one pitching appearance in his career, was next if the Orioles hadnt scored in the top of the 12th. "I have been out of it for like 2 1/2 hours," Orioles starter Kevin Gausman said. "Just walking around, chugging water, trying to get something going -- anything I could do to get us to score some runs." Edward Mujica (2-4) worked a scoreless 11th before Lough lined a triple to the centre field wall leading off the 12th. The next batter, Hardy, bounced one through the left side of the infield to give the Orioles the lead. Hardy and Nelson Cruz each had three hits for Baltimore. Cruz had five hits Saturday in the second game of a day-night doubleheader and hit safely in seven straight at-bats before flying out in the fifth. David Ortiz had four hits and Dustin Pedroia added three for Boston, which trailed 6-1 before scoring five runs in the seventh to tie it. Ortiz lined the ball to the left-field corner with one out in the 12th, but Lough threw him out trying to stretch it into a double. "He was digging hard right out of the batters box," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "The ball caroms right back to Lough and he throws a strike to second base. Im not going to fault him for an aggressive effort. He gave everything he had trying to stretch that base hit to a double." The Red Sox have lost five of six and fallen a season-worst 10 games below .500. Boston centre fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. had two hits, threw out a runner at the plate and made a leaping catch to end the top of the ninth. The Orioles scored in the fourth against Jake Peavy after Cruz led off with a double and scored when third baseman Xander Bogaerts fielded Delmon Youngs grounder and threw it into the stands behind first base. Young made it 2-0 in the sixth when he was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning and eventually scored on Caleb Josephs sacrifice fly. Boston cut it to 2-1 in the bottom half on Ortizs RBI single through the shifted infield. Baltimore scored four in the seventh on six singles and catcher David Ross error on a play at the plate. After Stephen Drew struck out to start the bottom half, Ross homered and then the next four batters singled to make it a 6-4 game. Pedroia struck out, then Brian Matusz was brought in to face Ortiz, who was 1 for 22 with 13 strikeouts in his career against the Orioles lefty. Ortiz singled to make it 6-5, then Mike Napoli singled off Tommy Hunter to tie the game before Drew struck out to end the inning. NOTES: Ortiz doubled in the fourth for his 1,708th hit in a Boston uniform. He passed Harry Hooper for seventh on the franchise list; Bobby Doerr is next with 2,042. Ortiz also had 393 hits with the Minnesota Twins. ... Bogaerts snapped an 0-for-27 slump with a third-inning single. ... Gausman was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to make the start. RHP Ramon Ramirez was designated for assignment to make room on the roster. ... Orioles RHP Bud Norris (groin) felt fine Sunday, a day after throwing a simulated game. Showalter said hes leaning toward starting Norris on Tuesday against Washington. ... Acknowledging Davis (.201) is "scuffling," Showalter gave him Sunday off. Showalter expects Davis to play Monday. ... Showalter brushed off Red Sox RHP John Lackeys comments Saturday after Cruzs five-hit game. Lackey said he had "nothing to say" about Cruz, apparently referring to his 50-game suspension a year ago for his role in the Biogenesis drug scandal. "We need to all make sure we check our own backyard before we start looking at somebody elses," Showalter said. ... Peavy has not won in 13 starts since April. 6. If baseball had never been invented, would pine tar exist? As a wood preservative, you say? And to make medicinal soap to treat skin ailments, Im told. The soap you might use if you smear pine tar all over your neck?7. If the New York Islanders give their 2015 first-round draft pick to the Buffalo Sabres as part of the payment for Thomas Vanek, who was later traded to Montreal, and if the Sabres wind up with Conor McDavid or Jack Eichel thanks to the Islanders, might the original Vanek trade from Buffalo to the Islanders have been the worst trade in modern NHL times?8. Jose Bautista tried unsuccessfully to steal third base when the Blue Jays were trailing the Red Sox 5-0. Why?9. I love it loud at rock shows and movie theatres. Why dont I love it loud at an NBA game? Because I might like to talk to the person next to me?10. Until somebody proves me wrong, Im pronouncing the controversial site of the 2022 soccer World Cup "Kotter", because thats how all of my trusted information sources tell me to pronounce "Qatar". I always get it right by remembering Gabe Kaplan and a young John Travolta.11. If Ichiro Suzuki is always referred to as "Ichiro", why do we call Yu Darvish "Darvish" and not "Yu"?12. Has Kyle Lowry ever heard of Bob Baun?13. Did you know that Justin Morneau is batting .351 for the Colorado Rockies? That stat came right out of thin air.14. Will the Coolumbus Blue Jackets ever understand how they held Sidney Crosby without a goal and why they lost to Pittsburgh?15.ddddddddddddCould we agree that the best solution to the problem of baseball games that last too long is Mark Buehrle?16. If any of 29 NHL teams blew a 3-0 series lead, there would be major repercussions. The 30th team is San Jose. Dont you agree that "major repercussions" will fall short of sufficiently explaining the fallout if the Sharks lose to the Los Angeles Kings?17. Dont you love reading box scores? Last week, I saw that Brett Gardner of the Yankees went 0 for 3 and scored four runs.18. Because you cant watch all eight first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, theres always one that you havent seen and know little about, and so, can you tell me if anything interesting has happened between the Rangers and the Flyers?19. When Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce asked for more noise from the fans at the Barclays Center, they didnt mean booing, did they?20. With Ron Francis newly-installed as the Carolina Hurricanes general manager, and as long as Kirk Muller is the Hurricanes head coach, the highest-scoring player among current GMs and among head coaches are with the same team. Has this ever happened before? I guess not, but if you have time to do research that proves otherwise, be my guest, send me the information and I will Pass It On."Question" — Moody Blues Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
