Red Sox Tumble Continues Against Last Place Birds

Wigginton's HR helps Orioles beat Red Sox 9-1

AP Sports Writer
      BOSTON (AP) – Ty Wigginton hit a tie-breaking three-run homer in
the seventh and Brad Bergesen pitched six strong innings to lead
the Baltimore Orioles to a 9-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox on
Tuesday night.
      Wigginton drove his 21st homer of the season just inside the
right field foul pole off Scott Atchison, who came in after Clay
Buchholz allowed one unearned run and four hits in six innings.
      Bergesen (8-10) gave up one run and five hits as he allowed
three runs or fewer for the ninth time in his last 10 starts.
Atchison (2-3) allowed three hits and retired just one batter.
      Wigginton's homer made it 4-1, and the Orioles added a run in
the eighth on Robert Andino's sacrifice fly and four in the ninth
off Jonathan Papelbon.
