Three 6-5 games

Extra! Extra! – The Orioles lose in extra-innings, 6-5 to the Blue Jays.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson tossed a four-pitch walk to force in a run with two outs in the 11th to give Toronto a win and end their franchise-record 17 straight regular-season extra-inning wins. Pitching for the third straight day, Johnson (1-2), despite retiring the first two batters, looked tired as he gave up two singles and a HBP before walking Maicer Izturis to force in the go-ahead and ultimately winning run.

The Orioles had almost won the game in the 10th but Rajai Davis threw out Manny Machado at the plate to end the inning.

The Red Sox keep up their winning ways topping the A’s, 6-5

Boston has now won nine of their last 12 and are 7-5 at home with the Hapless Astros coming in.

Jon Lester was shaky but moved to 4-0 on the season, picking up his 89th career win which ties him with Babe Ruth for fifth place in Sox history for wins by lefties.
