Daniel Cabrera held the Boston Red Sox to one hit over five scoreless innings, Chris Gomez drove in three runs, and the Orioles knocked off the defending World Series champions, 8-0.
Shortstop Edgar Renteria had the only hit off Cabrera, a single leading off the second inning. Renteria was erased on a double play, as Cabrera retired his last 11 batters.
Cabrera walked one and struck out four. He's allowed three earned runs in 12 1/3 innings.
The Orioles scored three times in the fourth inning against Red Sox starter Matt Clement. Gomez delivered two with a single, and he hustled home on Ed Rogers' double to right.
Rogers walked in the seventh inning, stole second and scored on Brian Roberts' single to right field.
The Orioles sent nine batters to the plate during a four-run eighth. Tim Raines Jr. scored on a throwing error by Red Sox pitcher Lenny DiNardo, and Geronimo Gil came home on a wild pitch. Gomez, Rogers and David Newhan had RBI singles.
Daniel Cabrera: Looked like Curt Schilling, minus the bloody sock and steroid talk.
Chris Gomez: Passed Enrique Wilson for club lead in RBIs with eight. A scout from another organization recommends the Orioles keep both players.
Ed Rogers: E-Rog might actually get out of Double-A Bowie this year. The next trick is getting back on the 40-man roster.
Larry Bigbie: Two more hits could be a sign that he's emerging from a spring-long slump.
Javy Lopez: Unable to throw effectively because of an inflamed right elbow, Lopez had bigger problems making contact at the plate, striking out twice against Matt Clement and going 0-for-3.
Miguel Tejada missed his fourth straight game after having a tooth extracted, but he's expected to play today. ... Enrique Wilson was scratched from the trip because of flu-like symptoms.
