Red Sox lose season finale, focus on playoffs
Ryan Flaherty came off the bench to replace an injured Chris Davis and had two hits and two RBIs, leading the Orioles to a 7-6 victory over the Red Sox in the final regular-season game Sunday.
Boston center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury went 2-for-5 and hit his ninth home run of the season. Right fielder Quintin Berry got his first home run of the season for the Red Sox. Mike Napoli went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
Davis had to leave the game in the fourth inning with a sprained left wrist. X-rays were negative and no further tests were scheduled.
" We're right where we need to be," Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz said. "Now, it's all about surviving. I feel good. We finished in first place, right?"
The Orioles' bullpen then held the lead with Jim Johnson getting his 50th save, best in the American League, despite allowing an RBI single to pinch hitter Napoli in the ninth. Johnson got Middlebrooks to ground into a double play to end the game with the tying run on third.
"All I can do is play as hard as I possibly can," Berry said. "I'm just trying to show what I can do."
After loading the bases with three walks in the first, Webster retired eight consecutive batters before being replaced by Doubront.
