BOSTON -- Baseball's Home Run Derby doesn't take place until next Monday in Phoenix, but the Red Sox gave fans a sneak preview Thursday night at Fenway.

The Red Sox belted a season-high six home runs -- including three in a row in the seventh inning -- to defeat the Baltimore Orioles, 10-4.

Coupled with the Yankees' loss to Tampa Bay, the win vaulted the Sox into first place in the American League East by half a game. The win was Boston's seventh in its last eight games.
