    Boston's AL lead slipped to five games over the Yankees, who added O's closer Zach Britton to their impressive bullpen on Tuesday night.

    The Boston Red Sox scored three late runs on Tuesday night, but came up one hit short, falling 7-6 to the Baltimore Orioles at rain-soaked Camden Yards.  Drew Pomeranz and Joe Kelly were roughed up, and the Sox seemingly responded quickly by trading for RHP Nathan Eovaldi on Wednesday morning.  J.D. Martinez did hit two more homers in the loss, regaining the MLB lead with his 30th and 31st dinger of the year.
