Red Sox Manage Only 4 Hits, Lose 3-2 to Orioles

Orioles C Welington Castillo (groin) threw in the outfield and will likely play in a rehab game or two before rejoining the major league club, manager Buck Showalter said. Baltimore won the first two games, and Boston the final two. The back-to-back losses drop Baltimore 1.5 games behind Boston and 3.5 in back of the division-leading New York Yankees.

The Sox only trail the Yankees by two games for first place in the AL East, which sets up quite a showdown as they travel to the Bronx this week. Aside from Chris Sale, Rodriguez has been the best pitcher in the rotation all season and a welcomed surprise for a player that was expected to start the year in Triple-A. Chris Davis drove in two runs with an opposite-field single to left and scored on a double by Jonathan Schoop, the first of his three hits. Rickard had hit a leadoff double and Machado drew a one-out walk. After a slow start to the season, Wainwright has allowed just one run over his last 26.1 innings. They claimed the lead for good with two unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth. I would hope that (tomorrow) in NY there would be the start of some BP, but that will be dependent upon what takes place here in the next 24 hours with him. Chicago (25-27) are riding a season-worst six-game losing streak and are in danger of dropping their seventh with John Lackey (4-5, 5.18 ERA) on the mound against Cardinals (26-25) right-hander Lance Lynn (4-2, 2.93 ERA).

"It was a great block". "Just staying on the same routine and just, I don't know, not doing too much, and just trying to find that swing again". He made a good block, the guy was off, and he was aggressive. "I was glad I was able to take that step", Tillman said.

"I think just mentally you have to stay strong and I think that's just one thing I can do pretty well is mentally stay there". "(There's) a lot of the starting pitching getting deeper, and (we) have multiple guys available to pitch multiple innings".

Showalter had the same takeaway of the play.

Cavaliers seek answers as Warriors eye perfect NBA title run
Irving says that the Warriors team from last year is not the same as this year and the series is not the same series as last year. It keeps ringing in my ears like the sound you get when someone pulls the fire alarm in high school to get out of a pop quiz.

Friday's win saw both bullpens pitch very well. Now after his second start at the major league level since returning from injury you can start to see what he meant by that comment in Pawtucket.

"I just tried to be too quick, tried to put a flawless throw, and I messed it up", Pena said.

"Yeah, I mean it sucks", Benintendi said. I try to dwell on that part of it.

Tillman, making his sixth start since coming off the DL, allowed five runs (three earned) and six hits with three strikeouts and four walks in six innings.

Benintendi also hit a solo shot in the third and singled in a run in the ninth. Sale struck out nine in his last start, beating his former teammates from the White Sox despite allowing six runs on 10 hits in five innings. If Johnson gets through his bullpen later this week, he still could be the choice.
