Home improvement
Dice-K not at his best
Instead of adding a victory under the win column, Daisuke Matsuzaka only added to his miseries as the righty gave up eight runs and hurled a season-low 2 2/3 innings against the Orioles, who ended their home winless streak. Because of the loss, Boston's magic number remained at 15.

Grand end to home drought
Behind a seven-run third inning, highlighted by Scott Moore's grand slam -- which was also his first Oriole hit -- Baltimore ended its 11-game home winless streak. The Orioles hit three homers in support of Jon Leicester, who picked up his first win of the season in his first start.
