[photogallerylink id=41563 align=right]Marco Scutaro and Adrian Beltre homered in a six-run seventh inning, and the Boston Red Sox beat Baltimore 9-6 on Wednesday night to provide Jon Lester with another win over the Orioles.

J.D. Drew also homered for the Red Sox, who trailed 5-2 before rallying to end a three-game skid. Despite the victory, Boston remained eight games behind AL East-leader New York and seven games behind second-place Tampa Bay.

Lester improved to 13-0 lifetime against Baltimore. The left-hander yielded more runs (five) in the first two innings than in any of his previous 15 outings against the Orioles.

Lester (15-8) allowed five runs and eight hits in six innings. He struck out 10, walked two, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch.
