The Orioles completed a three game sweep of the Red Sox in memorable fashion from Fenway Park on Sunday.  For the first time since 1925, two position players had to take the mound as Baltimore outlasted the BoSox in 17 innings.  The O's scored three runs in the top half of the 17th  on an Adam Jones home run off Boston outfielder Darnell McDonald who found himself on the mound for the Sox.  Chris Davis earned the win for Baltimore who faired better on the mound than he did at the plate.  Davis was 0-8 with five strikeouts at the dish but Davis recorded two strikeouts on the mound and picked up the win in his pitching debut.  JJ Hardy tallied a career high five hits including a pair of solo blasts as the O's defeated Boston 9-6 in a wild one from Fenway.
