BALTIMORE (AP) — Brandon Workman allowed one hit over 6 2-3 innings, and the Boston Red Sox beat Chris Tillman and the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 on Tuesday night for their second win in eight games.
Mike Napoli’s third-inning RBI single was all the offense the Red Sox needed to come out on the positive end of a pitcher’s duel for the first time this season. Boston was 0-18 when scoring fewer than three runs.
Workman (1-0) walked one and struck out four in earning his first win as a starter since last July. The right-hander held the Orioles hitless until Ryan Flaherty lined a soft single to center with two outs in the sixth.
Baltimore’s only other hit was a single by Steve Pearce in the ninth off Koji Uehara, who earned his 13th save.
