Orioles Complete Sweep of Red Sox


AP Sports Writer


BALTIMORE (AP) – Ty Wigginton doubled home the winning run in

the 10th inning following a throwing error by Boston closer

Jonathan Papelbon, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 3-2 victory

Sunday and their first three-game sweep of the Red Sox at home in

36 years.


Miguel Tejada had two hits and scored a run for the Orioles,

whose three-game winning streak is a season high. The Orioles swept

a four-game series from Boston at Camden Yards in 1998, but hadn't

swept a three-game set against the Red Sox in Baltimore since Sept.

2-4, 1974.

The Orioles are 4-2 against the Red Sox after going 2-16 against

them last year.
