On Wednesday night, the Orioles won their second straight game in Boston, 2-1, as Wei-Yin Chen bested the Red Sox’s Josh Beckett. They are 32-24 and lead the division by ½ a game over the New York Yankees.

The Orioles, as well know have struggled over the past few weeks; however, maybe the Boston Red Sox are the elixir for Baltimore’s issues. They have won seven straight against the Red Sox at Fenway Park, no easy feat at all.

Perhaps things are different this year for the Orioles, as they now seemingly own the Red Sox – at least when it comes to playing at Fenway Park. Have the tables turned for the Orioles against the Red Sox?

Could you have imagined that thought a few years ago?

Baltimore scored twice in the sixth inning, and that was enough to bolster Chen to his fifth win of the season. Chen went gave up a run in seven innings and allowed seven hits to the Red Sox; however, he managed to get himself out of trouble a few times to keep his team in the game. Darnell McDonald plated Boston’s only run of the game in the third inning with an RBI-double.

Beckett pitched well for the Red Sox, but took the loss, giving up two runs in eight innings.

The Orioles are now one-third of the way through the 2012 season, and it is astonishing to see how well they’ve done. The question is this: can the Orioles sustain their success so far?

Although they had fallen on hard times over the past few weeks, the Orioles are gutting out each victory and looking like winners again.

Baltimore goes for the sweep over Boston on Thursday night as Brian Matusz squares off against Clay Buchholz on the mound.
