Mancini, who has 10 RBIs in 10 big league games, and Jonathan Schoop went back-to-back in the first inning. Adam Jones and Chris Davis homered to chase Wright (0-1) in the second as Baltimore (5-2) built a 9-0 lead and went on to a split of the two-game series.
Ubaldo Jimenez, 2-6 lifetime against the Red Sox, couldn’t get through five innings for the win as Mychal Givens was summoned with the bases loaded in the fifth. Givens (2-0) gave up an RBI single — one of Xander Bogaerts’ three hits — but was credited with two scoreless innings.

Schoop and Hardy came into the game 2-for-19 on the season.
