Henderson’s big hit helps Orioles rally past Red Sox 3-2

Baltimore — Gunnar Henderson hit a bases-loaded single in the sixth inning to cap a big Baltimore rally, and the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2.

It was a much-needed victory for the Orioles after they lost three of four to Toronto in their previous series to fall 4 1/2 games behind the Blue Jays for the final American League wild card.

Baltimore trailed 2-0 after Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run homer in the third.

But the Orioles came back with three runs in the sixth. Henderson’s hit brought in two and gave his team the lead.
