[photogallerylink id=44885 align=right]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.
