BALTIMORE, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- Homers by Marco Scutaro and Adrian Beltre accounted for five runs during a six-run seventh Wednesday that rallied the Boston Red Sox past Baltimore 9-6.

The Orioles had a 5-3 lead going into the seventh and Mark Hendrickson (1-5) came out for his second inning of work.

Hendrickson, however, gave up a leadoff single to Darnell McDonald and Scutaro blasted a one-out, two-run homer that tied it. J.D. Drew then drew a walk and scored the go-ahead run on a double by Victor Martinez.

David Ortiz was then walked intentionally, bringing up Beltre, who hit an 0-1 pitch over the wall in left for a three-run homer.

Jon Lester (15-8) got the win, although he gave up five runs on eight hits in six innings. Jonathan Papelbon worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his 34th save.

Baltimore had a four-game winning streak snapped.
