Orioles 7, Red Sox 6

BOSTON — A year after the Boston Marathon bombings, the Red Sox had plenty of chances to make a special day even more memorable.

They almost succeeded.

Boston scored one run in each of the last three innings — stranding runners in scoring position in all of them — in a 7-6 loss to the Orioles in Monday's Patriots' Day morning game.

Not bad, though, considering the Red Sox trailed 6-0 after three innings.

"Our guys battled and fought and did a good job of making a game of it and it came down to the last pitch," David Ross said. "We did a good job of representing Red Sox baseball. We just want to win, obviously, for the fans and the whole situation.'"

Boston beat the Rays 3-2 in last year's Patriots' Day game. About 40 minutes after the final out, two bombs went off near the marathon finish line, killing three spectators.
