Herrera has big hit in 9th, lifts Red Sox to win

Updated: Saturday, July 5 2014, 08:45 PM EDT

BOSTON (AP) -- Jonathan Herrera had a pinch-hit, broken-bat single with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Boston Red Sox a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader to snap a three-game skid.


After poor hitting and fielding spoiled Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester's attempt for a 10th win, the Red Sox rallied in the ninth.


Pinch-hitter Jonny Gomes legged out a leadoff infield single off reliever T.J. McFarland (1-2). David Ross then bunted Gomes to second before Herrera's blooper over second base scored Gomes.


Koji Uehara (4-2) worked a perfect ninth and Stephen Drew hit his first home run since the World Series for Boston.


The Orioles' two runs came on Xander Bogaert's two-out error in the third.


Lester allowed two unearned runs and five hits in eight innings, striking out seven with no walks.
