Orioles score twice in first inning, hang on for 2-1 win over Red Sox, first road-series sweep of season

Led by left-hander Wade Miley, the Orioles held the Boston Red Sox to a single run despite allowing 16 base runners in a 2-1 victory Sunday at Fenway Park that clinched a three-game series sweep and brought their record to .500 (65-65) for the first time since Aug. 7.

The Orioles didn’t score after the first inning, when center fielder Adam Jones and left fielder Trey Mancini each had an RBI double.

Boston threatened constantly from that point on, but manager Buck Showalter cobbled together 12 outs of scoreless relief from Mychal Givens, Richard Bleier, Miguel Castro and Brad Brach to clinch the Orioles’ first road sweep of the season and give them four straight victories...
