Alex Cobb dominates, Orioles bats wake up in 13-1 win over Red Sox

In between, he was finally what the Orioles signed him to be — a reliable, veteran starting pitcher who gave them a chance to win.

Cobb’s effort in the Orioles' 13-1 win over the Red Sox on Thursday night to avoid a series sweep was the seventh of his 10 starts in which he allowed two earned runs or fewer and ended a season devoid of injury for the first time in his three seasons with the Orioles.

Cobb was pitching with a lead for most of the game, as the Orioles (24-33) took a 3-0 advantage in the second inning and, uncharacteristically, built on it.
