Red Sox update

Boston has won eight of its past 10 games and returns home to face the Orioles after a 5-2 road trip. Left fielder Manny Ramirez is starting to get hot with two hits or more in five of his past eight games. He has four home runs during that span. Shortstop Julio Lugo hit .089 in June with a .170 on-base percentage, but he's rebounded nicely this month, batting .330. Designated hitter David Ortiz went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, ending his 13-game hitting streak. Before the Red Sox bullpen surrendered three runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday, it had allowed just five earned runs over 33 2/3 innings in its previous 11 games. The Orioles are 1-4 against the Red Sox this season after going 3-15 against them last season. They are also 2-10 at Fenway Park during the past two seasons.
