BALTIMORE -- Jon Lester won his fourth straight decision, giving up three runs in six innings, helping lead the Red Sox to an 11-5 win over the Orioles, Saturday night at Camden Yards. The Sox broke a 3-3 tie with three runs in the seventh inning, which was followed by five more in the eighth. The five-run eighth inning was highlighted by the sixth time this season they have hit back-to-back home runs, with J.D. Drew's three-run blast followed by Brian Anderson's solo shot. The Red Sox finished with 17 hits, with Mike Lowell and Drew each notching three, and Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz claiming a pair each. The Red Sox have now won 10 of their last 12 games, and are 26-11 since Aug. 9, the best record in the major leagues.
