Stinging defeat
Photos
Red Sox 6, Orioles 5
Brad Bergesen gave up one run on four hits in eight innings. (Nick Wass/AP)
Less than 24 hours after staging a historic comeback, Baltimore could not carry that momentum into the finale. Brad Bergesen was cruising along before he handed it to his bullpen in the ninth. But reliable relievers Jim Johnson and George Sherrill were unable to preserve the victory, and the O's eventually fell in the 11th.
