BALTIMORE -- Four Red Sox pitchers combined for the team's 10th shutout of the season, a 4-0 blanking of the Baltimore Orioles, that sent the Sox home with yet another winning road trip (4-2).

Andrew Miller went 5 23 innings despite six walks -- including three in a row in the second -- and got relief help from Matt Albers, Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon.

Together, the four pitchers allowed just two hits.

Jacoby Ellsbury homered twice -- once in the third and again in the seventh -- for the second two-homer game of his career.

The Sox also got runs on a Jason Varitek infield groundout and a bases-loaded walk by Carl Crawford.

The winning road trip is the sixth in a row for the Sox, who improved to 31-20 away from home, the best road record in baseball. Since beginning 0-7 on the road this season, the Sox are 31-13 in their last 44 games.
