Andino Powers O's Past Sox

Robert Andino's three-run inside-the-park-homer lifted the Orioles to a 6-3 victory over Boston on Monday night.

Andino became the first Oriole to accomplish the feat at Camden Yards, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary next season. The O's had just taken a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning before Andino stepped to the plate with two on and two outs and drilled a ball to deep center field...Jacoby Ellsbury caught the ball but it squirted loose as he slammed into the wall. The inning started with another milestone, as Vladimir Guerrero's single gave him 2,587 hits, the most ever for a Dominican-born player.

The loss was a devastating blow to the Red Sox (89-71) who now share an identical record with Tampa Bay. The two clubs are tied for the Wild Card with two games remaining. Zach Britton takes the mound on Tuesday night...
