Another day, another loss.

The Baltimore Orioles were swept by the Boston Red Sox after a 5-1 loss Wednesday in Camden Yards. It was the seventh straight loss for Baltimore, who have taken a beating in the AL East.

It didn’t help that the Orioles had to face Cy Young candidate Chris Sale and the high-powered offense of Boston.

Yefry Ramirez made his major league debut and learned the hard way against the Red Sox, who lead the league with 47 wins. Ramirez lasted just 4.1 innings allowing three runs, which is all the support Chris Sale needed.

Mookie Betts hit a solo homerun to put the Sox on the board. It was the top of the 5th inning where Ramirez struggled the most. After a sacrifice fly from Xander Bogaerts, an RBI single by Rafael Devers drove the score to 3-0. Eduardo Nunez followed with an RBI single of his own to push the lead to 4-0.

The only Orioles run came in the 7th inning when Jace Peterson hit a sacrifice fly. The Orioles had two hits off Sale and just four for the entire game.

Baltimore (19-48) is just happy to be moving on from the Sox and are ready to welcome the Marlins (26-42).
