BOSTON - The Baltimore Orioles finally lost after opening the season with a team-record seven straight wins, beaten by the bats of Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and the Boston Red Sox 4-2 Wednesday night.

The Orioles were the last undefeated team in the majors, ending their longest winning streak to start a season since moving to Baltimore in 1954. The franchise opened 9-0 in 1944 as the St. Louis Browns.

"I'm proud, we won the series," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after the defeat. "We won two out of three in the American League East on the road against a team we all know is going to be pretty good this year. We're real proud of that. Now we move on."

The Red Sox snapped a three-game losing streak. Bogaerts hit a two-run double and Bradley had a tiebreaking triple.

Baltimore will look to get back to its winning ways Thursday when it opens a four-game series in Arlington with the Texas Rangers.
