Hardy, Reimold Power Orioles to 6-3 Victory Over Red Sox

BOSTON (AP) — J.J. Hardy hit a three-run homer and Nolan Reimold added a two-run shot later in the second as the Baltimore Orioles beat Boston 6-3 Tuesday night and pulled within two games of the AL East-leading Red Sox.

Jonathan Schoop added a leadoff homer in the ninth as the Orioles outslugged the Red Sox one night after getting rocked 12-2 in the series opener. With Toronto’s 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay, the Orioles pulled even with the Blue Jays for second in the division and tied for the two AL wild-card berths.

Orioles rookie Dylan Bundy (9-5) survived a rocky second inning and held Boston to three runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings. Zach Britton pitched a scoreless ninth for his 42nd save.

Xander Bogaerts homered for Boston, which had won five of six.

Drew Pomeranz (10-12) gave up five runs and four hits in two-plus innings, his shortest outing of the season.
