Carp and Gomes homer as Red Sox beat Orioles 5-4

       BALTIMORE (AP) _ Mike Carp and Jonny Gomes homered to back an effective pitching performance by John Lackey, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Orioles 5-4 Saturday to end a five-game losing streak in Baltimore.
        After dropping the first two games of the series, the Red Sox fell into a 2-0 hole before bouncing back. Carp's home run snapped an 18-inning scoring drought in the fourth, and Gomes made it 5-2 in the sixth with a solo shot that chased Baltimore starter Freddy Garcia (3-4).
        Boston leads Baltimore by 2{ games in the AL East.
        Lackey (4-5) gave up two runs, seven hits and a walk in seven innings to improve to 12-4 against the Orioles.
        Former Oriole Koji Uehara struck out the side in the eighth and Andrew Bailey gave up a two-run homer to Matt Wieters in the ninth before securing his eighth save.
