Thames hits 13th HR, Brewers outslug Red Sox in 11-7 win

Boston Red Sox prospect Bobby Dalbec is seen here hitting a home run during the second inning of an NCAA tournament super regional game against Mississippi State in Starkville Miss. Saturday

While the New England Patriots have taken the last three meetings between these two teams, Harbaugh's Ravens have been a thorn in the Patriots side ever since 2009. The Brewers also scored two runs on throwing errors by catcher Christian Vazquez, one each in the fifth and sixth.

"He had a monster game for us", Milwaukee manager Craig Counsel said.

Hanley Ramirez made his first start of the season at first base today, but he lasted there for only three innings. Second-place hitter Thames' ground-rule double drove home Broxton in the fifth to break a 2-2 tie. Thames took off for a steal of second, and Vazquez tried to catch Broxton off of third.

"It's lovely and it's a lot of fun. every guy in that lineup is going to give a tough at-bat, and come up with some good results", Broxton said.

On Tuesday, Broxton teed off on Boston Red Sox pitching by driving in four runs and finishing a double short of the cycle in the Brewers' 11-7 win.

The Red Sox have that one spot in their rotation that they just can't seem to lock down.

"We'll see what happens", Kendrick said when asked about his future. I left some balls over the middle of the plate and they hit them.

David Price scheduled for his first minor league start.

The Brewers won a second straight interleague slugfest in game that had 24 hits, 13 for Milwaukee. Drew Pomeranz was lit up for seven hits and six runs in only four innings to fall to 3-2.

Matt Wieters hit a winning, two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning against his former team, and the Washington Nationals rallied to beat Baltimore 7-6 Wednesday night and end the Orioles' six-game winning streak. Boston got those two runs back in the eighth on Betts' double to left.

"Offensively, I thought we did an excellent job tonight, particularly the top half of our order", manager John Farrell said. Both runners were erased in double plays.

Ryan Braun moved Thames to third with a base hit but gave way to pinch-runner Jonathan Villar because of tightness in his left calf. Counsell said he was planning to give Braun a day off on Wednesday anyway.

The 31-year-old southpaw has not pitched this season and would obviously be a welcome addition to a Red Sox rotation that hasn't fared well as a group. He'll make his first rehab start on Sunday at Triple-A, per Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe (Twitter links). In his 31.2 innings and 1-2 record this year, Nelson has a 4.83 ERA and 25 strikeouts to his credit.
