The Baltimore Orioles finally lost after opening the season with seven straight wins, beaten by the bats of Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and the Red Sox, 4-2, on Wednesday night in Boston.

The Orioles were the last undefeated team in the majors, and the loss ended a winning streak that was the franchise’s longest to start a season since it moved to Baltimore in 1954. The team opened 9-0 in 1944 as the St. Louis Browns.

The Red Sox ended a three-game losing streak. Bogaerts hit a two-run double, and Bradley had a tiebreaking triple.

Chris Davis hit a two-run homer for the Orioles.

MARINERS 4, RANGERS 2 Dae-Ho Lee hit a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the 10th inning, lifting Seattle over Texas for its first win of the season at Safeco Field.

After starting 0-5 at home, the Mariners won on Lee’s second home run of the season. Robinson Cano hit his fifth homer for Seattle.
