The Red Sox will take the diamond Tuesday when they begin a three-game series with the New York Yankees. Bogaerts also scored on. In a rare poor start, he gave up seven earned runs on four home runs and eight overall hits in 5.2 innings.

BALTIMORE (AP) - David Price returned to form against the Baltimore Orioles, and after he was done, the skilled left-hander made this perfectly clear: The best is yet to come. The Red Sox won with plenty of room to spare, with much of that coming as a result of Benintendi's contributions. According to the tracker, the longest home run this season was a 483-foot shot by Oakland Athletics shortstop Chad Pinder on May 20, also against the Red Sox. "I went down. Nothing insane", he said. "That's my fourth outing with an umpire, my fourth outing with guys on base".

"I don't get mad at anyone out there other than myself - maybe an umpire once in a while" Sale joked. And a good one, at that. Porcello fell to 4-9 with a 4.77 ERA in his career versus the Orioles, with a 2-4 mark and a 4.89 ERA at Camden Yards. Getting into the bullpen was a big win, and in particular Vazquez stands out as someone who was working counts on Saturday, seeing 16 pitches in his two at bats against Bundy. He's 2-2 in those games.

"I just tried to be too quick, tried to put a ideal throw, and I messed it up", Pena said. "You can't control that". Rodriguez has had knee problems before, missing time in 2016 and hurting it during the off-season.

"What I saw on the play was an unbelievable stop on a wild pitch. I didn't see Manny because Moreland was right in front of the line", Pena said.

Rodriguez had knee issues previous year and slipped on a mound in winter ball, too. Hopefully, the rest of the Red Sox team is able to shake off the struggles from the first third of the season and hit more deep balls the rest of the year.

Boston Red Sox's Mookie Betts connects for a single against the Baltimore Orioles in the first inning of a baseball game, Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Baltimore.

"We didn't execute in the first inning, probably cost him another 15, 18 pitches in the first inning but the competitor in him to get through that inning on one of the hotter days we've faced", Farrell said.

Four of Ramirez's seven HRs this season have come against the Orioles. But the Orioles (29-24) showed their faith in Asher by giving him another start. Red Sox rookie OF Andrew Benintendi ended an 0-for-19 skid with a sixth-inning single.

That's why the Red Sox were delighted to win the final two games to get a split.

Right-handers were 0-for-47 before that hit, and the Orioles have a lineup loaded with right-handed batters.

Rodriguez sustained the injury when he slipped in the bullpen during warmups prior to Thursday night's 7-5 loss in Baltimore. Boston INF Josh Rutledge was available after being scratched the previous night because of dehydration.

"He was outstanding", Boston manager John Farrell said.

"We think we have a feel of it and we hopefully can work him through it", Dombrowski said. Reliever Matt Barnes was unavailable while attending a personal matter, but is expected to return Sunday.
