Baltimore's rotation finally stepped up, though the Orioles had to overcome bullpen issues to end their losing streak, while Boston's relievers also struggled again. The Orioles (8-10) had given up 38 runs while dropping five in a row prior to Saturday's 5-4, 10-inning victory on David Lough's homer off Koji Uehara.

Minutes after watching a thrilling baseball game that featured one surprising play after another, thousands of fans at Camden Yards had no idea what to expect after emerging from the safety of the ballpark. Good,'' Ali Howard said at the exit, around 15 minutes after the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4 in 10 innings Saturday night to end a five-game losing streak. Outside the stadium, thousands gathered to protest the death of Freddie Gray, who died in police custody after suffering an unexplained spinal injury. 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.'' By the bottom of the 10th, the restriction on departing the stadium had been lifted.
Fans at the Baltimore Orioles-Boston Red Sox baseball game were briefly asked to stay inside the stadium toward the end of the game after a small group of Freddie Gray protesters became violent. The protesters blocked an intersection near Oriole Park at Camden Yards for several hours and had a tense standoff with police Saturday night. The protesters were eventually cleared. The Orioles won 5-4 in 10 innings.
On Saturday, protestors started gathering in the streets of Baltimore to express their anger over the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old African-American man who suffered a spinal injury that allegedly occurred while he was being arrested by Baltimore police. According to reports early in the day, the protests were mostly peaceful. However, as the day has gone along, the protests have become most destructive, with numerous reports of protestors throwing objects at police dressed in riot gear, and breaking out windows in police cars and buildings around Camden and Howard Street, which is right outside Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the home of the Baltimore Orioles. [ Yahoo Sports Fantasy Baseball: Sign up and join a league today! ] According to a few writers on scene, the protests turned chaotic as first pitch neared, which forced the Orioles to temporarily close off Gate H on Eutaw Street. Thousands of fans were caught up in the protests as well as they attempted to enter the ballpark. Some were even threatened, according to the Baltimore Sun's Eduardo Encina . There was some brief talk on social media about whether or not the game should go on as scheduled on Saturday. It would appear the Orioles, Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball never seriously entertained that thought as the game began on time. Here's a look at the chaotic scene, courtesy of Encina and others. #FreddieGray protesters now face-to-face with police at Oriole Park at Camden Yards pic.twitter.com/4QRDi7rany — Colin Campbell (@cmcampbell6) April 25, 2015 #FreddieGray protestors forced closure of Gate H at Camden Yards. #Baltimore #Orioles #RedSox pic.twitter.com/RHN1GY4IUC — Eduardo A.

Encina (@EddieInTheYard) April 25, 2015 it would appear the scene outside the park hadn't improved much by first pitch. Perhaps some fans just went home, too, rather than dealing with the gathering. Of course, we figured things could get interesting again toward the end of the game. This announcement was actually made in the stadium in the ninth inning, advising fans to remain in the ballpark until further notice.

Encina (@EddieInTheYard) April 26, 2015 The Orioles went on to 5-4 in 10 innings on David Lough's walk-off home run. Less than minutes later, fans were given the all clear with instructions on how to leave the ballpark and direction for leaving the area. Fortunately, it appears everyone was able to leave safely, but it'll be interesting to see how things are looking on Sunday before the series finale.

Boston manager John Farrell said the team ''needed to add another arm to the bullpen.'' Farrell said Victorino is improving.
The details are being treated as a state secret by three clubs believed to be using the product - the Cubs, Red Sox and Rays. What the producers made was they took I think the pitchers from major league baseball in 2014 and programmed every pitch they had thrown,'' said Stephen Bruno, a Double-A infielder in the Cubs' organization. The Red Sox said GM Ben Cherington did not want to comment on the topic. Matt Silverman, the president of baseball operations for Tampa Bay, did not respond to a message from The Associated Press.
