GAME OF THE DAY

Orioles rally to beat Red Sox

Baltimore overcomes a nine-run deficit in the seventh inning to prevail, 11-10.

BALTIMORE — Nick Markakis hit a two-run double off Boston closer Jonathan Papelbon to complete the biggest comeback in Baltimore Orioles history, an 11-10 win Tuesday night before a mixture of delirious hometown fans and stunned Red Sox backers.

Baltimore trailed, 10-1, before scoring five runs in the seventh inning and five more in the eighth. The rally was even more shocking because it came against a Boston team that had defeated the Orioles eight straight times.

Up by nine runs in the seventh, the Red Sox probably felt pretty good despite a lengthy rain delay. Boston had no idea how bad it would get.

Previously, the biggest comeback in Orioles history was Sept. 2, 1956, when Baltimore rallied from an eight-run deficit at Boston.
