The Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-6 last night. David Ortiz homered in the sixth inning to start Boston’s comeback from a three-run deficit and the Sox got three hits from Will Middlebrooks.
Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington says outfielder Cody Ross has a broken bone in his left foot and could be sidelined 6-8 weeks. Ross fouled a ball off his foot in Friday night’s game against Philadelphia. An MRI yesterday revealed a small fracture.
