BALTIMORE — David Lough hit a game-ending homer in the 10th inning to cap a two-run rally against Koji Uehara, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4 Saturday night to end a five-game losing streak.
A crowd of 36,757 showed up for this matchup of AL East foes. Outside the stadium, thousands gathered to protest the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody after suffering an unexplained spinal injury.
Several helicopters circled Camden Yards as some of the protesters threw cans and plastic bottles in the direction of police officers. Inside the ballpark, people watched the protesters gather.
In the middle of the ninth inning, after the Red Sox extended a game the Orioles seemingly had in hand, the public address announcer told the fans that the mayor and city officials requested no one leave the ballpark because of "ongoing public safety issues."
