Orioles Complete Sweep at Fenway with Six-Run Comeback Win

In a thrilling showdown at Fenway Park, the Orioles emerged victorious against the Red Sox, completing a remarkable three-game sweep with their sixth comeback win of the season. Manager Brandon Hyde expressed his satisfaction with the team’s performance, emphasizing the importance of playing solid baseball regardless of the opponent.

The Orioles faced an early deficit as the Red Sox jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, capitalizing on a string of doubles against starting pitcher Grayson Rodriguez. Despite the rocky start, Rodriguez settled into a groove, limiting Boston to just three hits and a walk over the rest of his outing while tallying five strikeouts.

The visitors quickly narrowed the gap, with Colton Cowser delivering his first Major League home run in the fifth inning to pull the Orioles within one run. Anthony Santander’s two-run homer in the eighth inning, expertly placed just past Pesky’s Pole, gave Baltimore the lead. However, Boston responded promptly, knotting the score in the bottom of the eighth and forcing extra innings.

The 10th inning proved to be decisive for the Orioles, with Jackson Holliday starting as the automatic runner. Gunnar Henderson ignited the offense with a two-run blast into the Green Monster seats, setting the stage for Cedric Mullins to drive in another run. Cowser then delivered his second homer of the game, a towering shot over the bullpen, to cap off the Orioles’ six-run explosion.

Manager Hyde praised the team’s collective effort and resilience, highlighting their ability to produce clutch hits when it mattered most. The Orioles’ offensive outburst, including a season-high four home runs, propelled them to their first sweep at Fenway Park since April of the previous year. With three consecutive games scoring seven or more runs, the Orioles’ youthful lineup showcased its potential and left fans eagerly anticipating the games ahead.
