BOSTON - -The sizable gap between the two teams in proven major league talent is a perfectly acceptable explanation for the Boston Red Sox's recent dominance over the Orioles. But there are more subtle differences as well that fall into the realm of one team finding a way to win and the other consistently finding ways to lose. Victor Martinez came off the bench and delivered a three-run double off Danys Baez to break a seventh-inning tie and push the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Orioles in front of an announced 37,712 Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

A Marylander who helped shape Oriole Park at Camden Yards and later guided the preservation and expansion of Boston's Fenway Park is looking for a new challenge. Roland Park resident Janet Marie Smith stepped down this summer as senior vice president in charge of planning and development for the Boston Red Sox, a position she has held for the past eight years. Smith said she left the Red Sox last month because her work in Boston was winding down and, after commuting between Baltimore and New England on a weekly basis for years, she is looking for planning opportunities closer to home.

BOSTON - -If David Ortiz were to apply his own standards, he could not play baseball for a year. Five months after saying that steroid users should be banned for a full year, Ortiz was snared in baseball's long-running scandal. Ortiz and Manny Ramirez, two integral players in the Boston Red Sox's championship teams of 2004 and '07, were among the 104 players who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in 2003, according to a New York Times report. After the Red Sox's 8-5 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday at Fenway Park - Ortiz hit a game-changing home run - he said he called the players association and confirmed that the report was true.

BOSTON - - Major League Baseball rules stipulate that, barring rain or another unusual occurrence, a team must get the final three outs of the ninth inning for a game to be official. Yet, there was a sense of finality Saturday night when David Ortiz's three-run homer off Jeremy Guthrie landed in the center-field bleachers. And the first inning hadn't even ended yet. Jon Lester was on the mound for the Boston Red Sox, and the Orioles were at Fenway Park, making the end result all too predictable.

BOSTON - A fate the Orioles couldn't even imagine when they led by seven runs with their ace, Jeremy Guthrie, on the mound in Friday's series opener became a reality Monday amid too many defensive miscues, poor relief outings and fruitless at-bats. The Boston Red Sox completed a four-day humbling of the visitors with a 12-1 victory before a Patriot's Day announced crowd of 37,865 at Fenway Park, the Orioles' fifth straight loss, dropping them below .500 for the first time this season. It was their ninth straight defeat at Fenway Park, where they are 6-25 since the beginning of the 2006 season, and their seventh straight loss overall to the Red Sox. In Boston's first four-game sweep of its American League East foes since September 2002, the Orioles were outscored 30-7 after taking a 7-0 lead in the top of the second inning of Friday's series opener.

BOSTON -The Orioles learned long ago that no lead is safe against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, but they had plenty to feel good about after the top of the second inning Friday night. They had a seven-run advantage and their ace, Jeremy Guthrie, on the mound. With the temperature in the mid-60s, it was as close to comfortable as the Orioles could get at the venerable ballpark on Yawkey Way. By the bottom of the second inning, the Orioles' advantage was cut to three runs. By the end of the fifth, Guthrie and the lead were gone.

A recap of the Orioles' 6-3 loss to the Red Sox last night: First the worst After watching Garrett Olson struggle last month at Yankee Stadium, the Orioles wanted to see how the rookie left-hander would respond to pitching at Fenway Park. By the end of the first inning last night, they had gotten their answer, and it wasn't good. Olson made a key throwing error in the first and allowed a long three-run homer to Jason Varitek that put the Orioles in a five-run hole. The good news is he settled down after his 31-pitch inning to get into the sixth.

BOSTON -- There is nothing that seems to get the Orioles' offense going more than the sight of Hideki Okajima running in from the bullpen to protect a Boston Red Sox lead. For nearly everyone else, Okajima's entrance, followed by the inevitable Jonathan Papelbon sighting, signifies that the game is just about over. For the Orioles, it has meant an opportunity is at hand. Trailing by two heading into the seventh after Daniel Cabrera couldn't hold a three-run lead, the Orioles rallied for three runs off Okajima and got clutch outs from their bullpen in a 10-6 victory over the Red Sox before an announced 37,858 last night at Fenway Park.
