Flaherty's HR gives Orioles 3-3 tie with Red Sox

(Continued)

Britton and four other pitchers combined to limit the Red Sox to one run and two hits through nine innings.

Ryan Flaherty hit a two-run home run in the 10th to earn the tie.

Boston scored two runs in the top of the 10th on a home run by Juan Carlos Linares and an RBI single by Ronald Bermudez.

Clayton Mortensen, for a spot on the Red Sox staff, allowed two hits in three innings.

“It was good to get out there and stretch myself. My particular role this year could involve many things, possibly a spot start in the future. It was good to get out there and do well,” Mortensen said.

NOTES: Red Sox OF Mitch Maier left the game in the third inning. He injured his left hand on a sliding catch of J.J. Hardy’s line drive. “I feel like I jammed it and kind of rolled it under me,” Maier said. He’ll have X-rays. ... Boston LHP Franklin Morales has a slight bulge in one of the disks in his back, manager John Farrell said. He’s received an epidural injection. “There’s no target date to put a ball back in his hand yet,” Farrell said. “It removes someone that we had plans to stretch out.” The Red Sox were hoping to have Morales as an extra starter. ... SS Stephen Drew, who’s suffering from post-concussion symptoms after being hit with a pitch on March 7, will begin exercising on a bicycle to see if he’s still affected by the blow. “We still feel like it’s going to be a few days yet before he’s able to get back on the field,” Farrell said. ... Farrell was planning to manage the other half of the split-squad game at Fort Myers against the Twins on Friday night. ... Red Sox DH David Ortiz is feeling better. “His symptoms have decreased,” Farrell said. Ortiz is out with a sore left heel. ... The Orioles traded minor league INF Michael Flacco, brother of Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco, to the Red Sox for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
