Josh Beckett was forced to come out of the game. Jeremy Guthrie probably should have stayed in.
Guthrie took a three-hit shutout into the ninth inning and came within two outs of his first complete game before Baltimore manager Sam Perlozzo pulled him, only to watch the Boston Red Sox score six runs and beat the Orioles 6-5 on Sunday.
“At one point, it seems like we had no chance,” said Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who doubled in Boston’s first run. “In the ninth, 5-0, fly ball, catcher misses it, and that was the difference in the game. Everybody started going crazy.”
