(AP Photo/Gail Burton)Stephen Drew has basically been mired in a season-long batting slump—until Saturday night. Drew went 3 for 4 with three runs scored and five RBIs—four of which came on his two HRs. Shane Victorino also homered in the 7-3 Boston win—that kept the team within 1/2 game of the AL East lead. Ryan Dempster pitched just well enough to win—going 5 1/3 innings and yielding just two earned runs. Mike Carp started in left and went 3 for 4—raising his season average to .329. Carp has played in just 55 games, but sports an OPS of 1.010 while slugging .622. David Ortiz was ejected in the seventh for arguing balls and strikes—then went on a rampage in the dugout, smashing the bullpen phone case and shattering his bat within inches of Dustin Pedroia. Just another night by the Inner Harbor.
