BOSTON -- Wade Miley knows he hasnt been very good since coming to the Orioles.On Monday night, he was even worse.Miley retired just four batters -- giving up four runs before recording an out -- and allowed six runs as the Boston Red Sox ran away from Baltimore for a 12-2 victory.Since being acquired from Seattle on July 31, the left-hander has gone past the fifth inning just twice in eight starts. Hes failed to get out of the second a pair of times.It just happened fast. Real quickly it was over it, he said. Everything I threw they just hammered.Miley fell to 1-5 with Baltimore in the shortest start of his career.He had a good fastball, but command got him, Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Theyre a really good offensive club -- like we are -- and theyre going to make you pay for those mistakes. He made a lot of them. I kept hoping hed find his stuff, but he didnt.David Ortiz hit his 536th home run to tie Mickey Mantle for 17th on baseballs career list, and David Price allowed just a pair of solo homers to lead the Red Sox, keeping Bostons AL East lead at two games over second-place Toronto. The Orioles dropped to three out, but still one game ahead of Detroit for the second wild card.Miley (8-13) allowed five runs in the first inning before loading the bases in the second.Asked how he thinks hes done so far with Baltimore, he said: Obviously, thats not really a good question, its not been very good.Chris Young homered, doubled twice and singled, and Hanley Ramirez also homered for the Red Sox, who maintained a two-game lead over Toronto.The Red Sox won for the fifth time in six games, scoring in each of the first seven innings before going down in order in the eighth. Ramirez hit his eighth homer in his last 15 games as Boston, the top-scoring team in the majors, got 11 runs or more for the fifth time in 10 games.Price (16-8) allowed two runs on two hits and zero walks, striking out nine in eight innings for his seventh straight victory. Its the longest winning streak in his career for the left-hander, who signed a seven-year, $217 million free agent contract over the offseason.Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts led off the bottom of the first with singles and then Ortiz lined one to the warning track in left-center. Left fielder Steve Pearce jumped to glove the ball, but it came out as he tried to avoid crashing into the Green Monster.Bogaerts had already begun retreating to first before Ortiz, rounding the bag, signaled for him to run in the other direction. The Orioles claimed Pearce had possession of the ball before dropping it, but the review upheld the original call and Ortiz had a single.Mookie Betts then hit a liner that stymied Pearce and went over his head for a double. When Ramirez followed with a single to left, Pearce was nonchalant in getting the ball back in; Betts, having stopped at third, scored to make it 4-0.Miley finally recorded an out, then got another on Sandy Leons sacrifice fly that gave Boston a 5-0 lead. Jackie Bradley Jr. was caught stealing to end the inning.Boston scored single runs in each of the next five innings, including Ortizs 33rd homer of the year into the Baltimore bullpen in the sixth. The Red Sox scored two more in the seventh.DIFFERENT OPINIONShowalter and Pearce both thought the LF caught Ortizs drive in the first.I know I caught the ball, Pearce said.Replays showed he didnt appear to ever have control as the ball fell to the ground.I thought he caught it, Showalter said.HOLD EVERYTHINGShowalter asked for a review of the game-ending double play as the Red Sox players were coming out of their dugout to celebrate.Dirty Water by the Standells was played over the PA -- as they always do in Fenway Park after Red Sox victories -- and Bostons players stood in foul territory, milling around waiting for confirmation that the game was over.Once the 55-second review confirmed the call, they joined their teammates on the field.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: RHP Darren ODay is scheduled to pitch in a simulated game on Tuesday. He has been on the DL since Aug. 12 with a right shoulder rotator cuff strain.Red Sox: Knuckleballer Steven Wright hasnt resumed throwing yet. Manager John Farrell said he is getting better from a right shoulder strain but it will be challenging to get him ready with just a few weeks left in the season.UP NEXTOrioles: Game 2 of the series is Tuesday night, with righty Dylan Bundy (8-5) scheduled to start.Red Sox: Lefty Drew Pomeranz will start for Boston. Antonio Rudiger Chelsea Jersey .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night. Willian Chelsea Jersey . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. http://www.chelseafcproshop.com/Kids-Marcin-Bulka-Jersey/ . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. Marcos Alonso Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. Danny Drinkwater Chelsea Jersey . On June 12, just as the sun sets on the magnificent historical city of Sao Paulo the inventors, innovators and purveyors of “joga bonitowill” open their campaign. The opponent, Croatia and all its football might and will. As opposites do attract we are set for a corker of an opener. Virginia Tech quarterback Jerod Evans describes himself as his own biggest critic, and that feeling holds true even after he makes a play that results in a touchdown.That was the case in the Hokies 49-0 victory against Boston College .Late in the first half, after a 29-yard punt return set Virginia Tech up at the Eagles 30, Evans threw to Isaiah Ford in the back of the end zone. Ford was double-covered, but still managed to come away with the football.It was the first play Evans mentioned when asked if he sees things he still needs to improve upon.I have more, but again, you just learn from the mistakes that you have, he said. Checking out of plays, doing stuff like that, doing stuff a couple of times that I could have done better without the play clock running down.Hokies coach Justin Fuente made sure to address the pass to Ford with his quarterback, too. He doesnt want to see the risky type of pass repeated when Virginia Tech (2-1) hosts East Carolina (2-1) on Saturday.The Pirates have won the last two meetings, and six in a row against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.Jerod knows that were not supposed to throw the ball into double coverage like that, Fuente said this week. Its a minus on the grade sheet and a plus on the results sheet.That said, the Hokies first-year coach noted that Evans confidence in Ford coming through for him is somewhat understandable. Ford has 20 receptions for 259 yards and three touchdowns.Obviously he went up and made the play and we feel good about Isaiah and our chances with him, he said. It was a heck of a catch. I dont think we just want to start chucking it to him with two people on him all the time, though.While pledging to heed his coachs insistence on better decision-makingg, Evans also seems to be trying to elevate the Hokies offensive expectations, perhaps based on his own history.dddddddddddd Last season at Trinity Valley Community College in Texas, he played in just eight games, but threw 38 touchdown passes and just three interceptions. This season, hes got 10 touchdowns and one interception on a tipped pass.Obviously youre confident after a 49-0 win, he said. I just dont know to what extent. Ill find out more on Thursday and Friday, but I think the guys are confident. I dont think some of the guys have ever scored 49 points in a game, so I thinks thats definitely a boost.The Hokies have reached that plateau once in the last two seasons, in a 51-24 victory at Purdue last season.Pirates first-year coach Scottie Montgomery sees a vast different in the challenge the Hokies present offensively under Fuente.That offense has grown from last year to this year as much as any offense, I think, to this point in time, he said. Hes been blessed with some really good players. Jerod Evans, his quarterback, has complete faith in (Ford) and (tight end) Bucky (Hodges), and those two combined together give them some great talent and weapons in their offense.Evans hopes to build on the Hokies success against Boston College to make it a habit.Once you do it a couple of times, its like anything, Evans said. Once you rep it so many times, it becomes the norm. Obviously it was just one game. We still have to work on stuff that we arent doing well on.---Online: The APs college football page: http://collegefootball.ap.org---Follow Hank on Twitter: www.twitter.com/hankkurzjr ' ' '
