iStock/Thinkstock(BOSTON) -- The Orioles allowed five unearned runs as the Boston Red Sox (8-5) beat Baltimore (7-6) 7-1 on Patriots’ Day. The game was called after 6 1/2 innings because of rain.

With the score tied at 1-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts scored the go-ahead run on a fielding error from Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (0-1). Boston would proceed to tack on three more runs in the inning -- all unearned.

Chen gave up three hits and five walks while striking out three across 4 1-3 innings of work.

Starting pitcher Justin Masterson (2-0) took the mound for Boston and allowed three hits, a walk and one earned run while striking out six in five innings.

Mookie Betts swiped his fourth base of the season in the first inning.

Baltimore Orioles/MLB(NEW YORK) -- After establishing himself as an everyday player, Baltimore Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop will be out indefinitely after suffering a right PCL injury (a Grade 1 tear) and an MCL sprain.

Schoop suffered the injury after he was taken out on a slide by Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval over the weekend.

“Yeah, it was on first base,” Schoop told the Baltimore Sun. “When I stood up, I felt it a little bit. But I was able to finish the game. On the last play, I was running a little bit and I felt my legs burning. When I came in it was swollen. …It was swollen a little bit, but I thought ice and treatment would make it better.

“It's really disappointing you want to be there for the team, for myself,” Schoop added. “So far, I was having really good at-bats. It's really disappointing, but there's nothing I can do.”

In his second full season with the Orioles, Schoop was batting .259 with three home runs and seven RBIs.

Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Masai Ujiri's mouth has cost him again. The NBA has fined the Toronto Raptors general manager $35,000 for his expletive over the weekend geared towards Washington Wizards forward Paul Pierce. The team was also fined $25,000.

"People want me to say something about Paul Pierce, but we don't give a s--- about it,'" Ujiri told a cheering crowd outside the Air Canada Centre.

Pierce had made disparaging comments about the franchise in an interview with ESPN.

Last season, Ujiri was fined $25,000 before the team's playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets for addressing a crowd using an expletive as well.

"I have the deepest respect for Commissioner [Adam] Silver and the NBA, and while showing passion for our team and fans I will choose my words more carefully in the future so as not to indicate otherwise," Ujiri said.

The Wizards defeated the Raptors in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series.
