BOSTON (AP)- Danny Valencia tripled to stop closer Koji Uehara's streak of 37 consecutive outs and scored on Matt Wieters' sacrifice fly in the ninth inning as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Tuesday night.
The Orioles overcame a 2-0 deficit on Brian Roberts' run-scoring groundout in the fifth and Chris Davis' 51st homer of the season in the sixth that tied the score 2-2. Davis broke the club record set by Brady Anderson in 1996.
Uehara (4-1) fell four outs short of Bobby Jenks' major league record for a reliever of 41 consecutive retired batters set in 2007 and Mark Buehrle's mark for all pitchers of 45 in 2009. The run was the first off Uehara in 30 2-3 innings and ended a streak of 27 scoreless outings since July 9
