BALTIMORE (AP) — Stephen Drew hit two homers, drove in five runs and scored three times to power the Boston Red Sox past the Baltimore Orioles 7-3 on Saturday night.
Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was ejected from the game in the seventh inning by home plate umpire Tim Timmons for arguing a called strike during an at-bat that ended in a strikeout.
Ortiz destroyed the covers of two dugout phones with his bat, then charged onto the field and had to be restrained by manager John Farrell and bench coach Torey Lovullo.
Shane Victorino also connected for the Red Sox, who won for only the fourth time in 10 games to remain a half-game behind first-place Tampa Bay in the AL East. Boston stood atop the AL East for 60 straight days before falling into second on Friday night.
