Dalbec ends slump, lifts Red Sox past Orioles 6-2

BALTIMORE — (AP) — Bobby Dalbec snapped an 0-for-27 skid with a single and a three-run homer, powering the Boston Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed one run and seven hits with two strikeouts and three walks over five innings to help the Red Sox improve to a major league-best 20-13.

Boston has won the last nine games Rodriguez has started against Baltimore.

Ryan Mountcastle had three hits, including his first homer since the Orloles’ home opener on April 8.

The game was delayed 1 hour, 38 minutes because of rain.
