BALTIMORE -- Held in check by Baltimores pitchers for 18 consecutive innings, the Boston Red Sox finally played like the highest-scoring team in the major leagues. Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes homered to back an effective pitching performance by John Lackey, and Boston beat the Orioles 5-4 Saturday to end a five-game losing streak in Baltimore. After dropping the first two games of the series, the Red Sox fell into an early 2-0 hole before bouncing back. Carps home run snapped an 18-inning scoring drought in the fourth, and Gomes made it 5-2 in the sixth with a solo shot that chased Baltimore starter Freddy Garcia (3-4). Every starter except for Jarrod Saltalamacchia got at least one hit, including two by Gomes. Boston finished with nine hits, four for extra bases. "Us getting shut outs not going to last too long," Gomes said. "Weve got some pretty good hitters on this team." Including Carp, whos been pressed into action at first base since Mike Napoli fell ill in the third inning of Thursday nights game. Napoli was sent back to Boston on Saturday so team doctors can determine why hes been feeling groggy over the past few days. Carp insisted that the Red Sox didnt come into the game pressing to break out of their offensive funk. "We dont think about that," he said. "We feel like were going to mash every day. It just takes one guy to get going, fortunately today it was me. Tomorrow its going to be another guy and so on and so forth." The victory increased Bostons lead over second-place Baltimore in the AL East to 2 1/2 games. The Red Sox lost three games at Camden Yards last September and were 0-2 this season, their longest dry spell in Baltimore since a seven-game stretch in 1969-70. Lackey (4-5) gave up two runs, seven hits and a walk in seven innings to improve to 12-4 lifetime against the Orioles. It was the right-handers first win since May 25, even though hes allowed three runs or fewer in nine of his 11 starts this season. Former Oriole Koji Uehara struck out the side in the eighth and Andrew Bailey gave up a two-run homer to Matt Wieters in the ninth before securing his eighth save. The game ended when pinch-runner Alexi Casilla took off from first base on a one-out liner to right by Ryan Flaherty. Shane Victorino made the catch without much difficulty and threw out Casilla for the double play. "Flaherty hit that ball very good," Casilla said. "He crushed it over my head. I kind of started running and looked where Victorino was playing and thought no chance he was going to catch that ball. I guess I kept running. Bad read." Baltimores Manny Machado extended his career-high hitting streak to 13 games and hit his major league leading 31st double. Despite the loss, Baltimore has won 13 of its last 18 games against the Red Sox. The Orioles took a 2-0 lead before Lackey got an out. After Nate McLouth singled off the pitchers foot and scored on a double by Machado, Nick Markakis singled and Adam Jones drove in a run with an infield hit. Lackey avoided further damage by retiring Wieters and J.J. Hardy with runners at second and third. "It might have been the key to the game," Boston manager John Farrell said. Lackey said, "Cant really do much about the first couple guys getting on once theyre on, so you just try to minimize it the best you can." David Ortiz led off the Boston second inning with a liner to centre that bounced off the wall and eluded Jones. The husky man known as "Big Papi" legged it out for his second triple this month; the last time Ortiz had two triples in a season was 2006. With Ortiz on third, Carp drew a walk before Garcia got three straight outs. The Red Sox ended their season-high scoring drought with a three-run fourth. After Dustin Pedroia singled and Carp homered to tie it, Gomes singled and Stephen Drew ended a 4-for-31 skid with an RBI double. Pedroias single came after home plate umpire Jeff Nelson ruled he fouled off a third strike. In reality, Pedroia missed it. "It was a break for us," Pedroia said. "I just said I thought I fouled that. Then he said, Foul ball. I thought I hit something. It was probably the ground. I dont know." Boston made it 4-2 in the fifth. Jacoby Ellsbury led off with a single, his first hit in 12 at-bats during this series. He stole second, advanced on a bunt and scored on Pedroias grounder to shortstop. Baltimore put runners at the corners with no outs in the bottom half, but Lackey worked out of the jam. NOTES: Red Sox rookie Jose Iglesias stretched his hitting streak to 16 games, longest by a Boston player this season. ... At the request of Jones, the PA system played WWE theme songs before each plate appearance by the Orioles. ... Jon Lester (14-1 lifetime vs. Baltimore) will start for Boston in the series finale. Miguel Gonzalez (2-0, 2.76 ERA vs. Boston) will start for the Orioles. ... Boston RHP Clay Buchholz hasnt sufficiently recovered from a sore neck and will not start Tuesday against Tampa Bay, Farrell said.

The NBA Finals: I picked the Heat in seven and after watching two games of this series so far, Im even more convinced that its going to go seven games. I still like the Heat but the margin of error between the two teams is quite small. Both teams make good adjustments and both have excellent coaching and smart veteran players who can adapt on the fly which is so critical this time of year. Its so important to keep an eye on two areas that are developing as major points of emphasis for both teams: the usage of the three-point shot and the turnover margin battle. The team that wins these categories is going to have a terrific chance to win that nights game due to the style of play that both employ. There will be less prep time between Game 2 & Game 3 and between Games 3 & 4 so these upcoming games in San Antonio are more about what your seasonal habits (both good and bad) have been and less about the extensive attention to detail that both teams thrive on. 2. The Houston Rockets: They are being mentioned in the free-agent pursuit of both Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. Whether the chatter is legit or not its the right approach for the Rockets. Its very important for them to get it into the minds of agents, media, opposing teams and - most importantly - those two players. They must show others that they mean business in this thing and to swing for the fences. That always helps with selling your message and creating a perception that the Rockets are going places. Will they land one or both? Its too early to tell. But theyll surely get their attention and an audience. You gotta be in it to win it. 3. Jason Kidd: I respect the wonderful career that he had as a Player. Reports are now swirling that hes going to sit down with the Nets to address his interest in being their head coach. With Mark Jackson having an excellent second year after a rough first one in Golden State as well as ex-players like Doc Rivers and Larry Bird having early success as head coaches after retiring it helps his argument if he surrounds himself with qualified assistant coaches rather than some buddies.dddddddddddd Ill say this though, if youre an owner, president and/or general manager of a team, youve got tons of cash invested in your business. Are you willing to take the risk to see if it might work with a novice coach? Im not saying it wont work. You just dont see this approach too often in the NFL, NHL and MLB. Must make sure hes the right guy for your particular challenge and he must have an excellent staff not a bunch of guys on lifetime scholarship. 4. Joey Crawford: He officiated Game 2 last night and on the whole there were no real issues. Yes, we all remember his showdown with Tim Duncan and that he has a penchant for being strong minded but to be perfectly honest with you, Ive watched this guy officiate for 15 years in my time as a broadcaster and if I were coaching again, Id have no reservations whatsoever with him calling my games. He loves the game, works hard at it, knows what hes doing and isnt afraid to make the big call. Particularly if Im the road team, I have complete faith that he wont allow the home crowd and/or the home coach to sway him into making a call. I want a guy like that on a big game. 5. Coaching Vacancies: Its been open game on NBA head coaches this season. To whom much money is given, much is expected. I get all that. Ill say this, though, some folks in many NBA markets need to come to grips and be more realistic. Only one team wins it all. Were all obsessed reaching the Holy Grail of winning an NBA Title, yet its important to remember that there are so many factors that go into that special/unique season and few ever experience it. Simply put, the fact that you win a bunch of games and then dont win it all doesnt make you a failure. You came up short. Not every team is blessed with great talent and the proper ingredients. Im not saying that Coaching changes arent necessary at times but I do think that more often than not its a matter of a lack of realism about what a Team truly has at its disposal and what they can/cant accomplish.
