BALTIMORE, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- Marco Scutaro's third-inning throwing error allowed two runs to score and the Baltimore Orioles went on to down Boston 5-2.

With runners at the corners and two outs, Adam Jones hit a grounder to Scutaro, whose throw to second on an attempted force-out sailed past Jed Lowrie and down the right field line, allowing Brian Roberts and Luke Scott to score to make it 3-0 Baltimore.

Scott and Felix Pie homered in the eighth inning and the O's took the first of a three-game series against Red Sox at Camden Yards.

Brian Matusz (7-12) limited Boston to two runs on six hits over six frames, walking one and striking out six.

Josh Beckett (4-4) allowed two earned runs in on seven hits in seven innings of work for the Red Sox, who fell to eight games out of first in the American League East.
