Red Sox take the opener

 Crisp's three-run shot
 Lugo's RBI single
Jason Varitek gave the Red Sox the victory with a pinch-hit RBI single in the ninth, but without Clay Buchholz -- in his first relief appearance -- to hold the O's in check, Boston may be singing a different tune. With the win, the Sox reduced their magic number to 16.
