The Boston Red Sox scored five runs in the first inning and then went on to beat the Baltimore Orioles by the score of 6-1 on Wednesday night.  With the win the three game series now tied 1-1 and the rubber match will be Thursday evening.

Bartolo Colon improved to 4-1 on the season as the threw six innings to pick up the win.  Colon allowed five hits on only one run in his six innings of action.  Very good outing by Colon everyone at the Red Sox Blog thinks!

David Aardsma pitched a scoreless seventh inning and then turned things over to Javier Lopez who threw a scoreless eighth inning.  Mike Timlin came in to pitch the ninth inning and had some trouble as he gave up a rbi double to Kevin Millar and then another run scored on an error by Dustin Pedroia.  The Red Sox finally brough in Jonathan Papelbon to record the final out and pick up the save which was his of the season.

Jason Varitek hit a three run home run in the first inning to have the big hit for the Red Sox on the night.  The home run gave the Red Sox a 5-0 lead after the first inning and after that it was all Red Sox.  Mike Lowell also added on a solo home run for the Sox.  J.D. Drew didn’t want to be left out as he had a rbi single and also scored on a wild pitch in the first inning.

I really like the Red Sox’s chances on Thursday evening as they take on the Orioles once again.  What do you think Red Sox fans?  Do they take the series over the Orioles 2-1?
