BALTIMORE — The Red Sox and Orioles may be the two best teams in the American League East. And you got the feeling Thursday night that both teams knew it.
They fought each other for 13 innings, neither side wanting to give in. The bullpens didn’t want to give it up. The hitters grinded out at-bats, but just couldn’t get that one big hit.
