Bobby Dalbec hit a two-run homer — one of the team’s season-high five homers in a single game — and the Boston Red Sox beat the Baltimore Orioles 12-2 on Sunday.

Rafael Devers, Kiké Hernández, Franchy Cordero and Christian Arroyo hit solo shots for the Red Sox, who won their ninth in 12 games.

Boston hit all five of his homers in four innings off Bruce Zimmermann (2-3). The pitcher had allowed in his previous start, Tuesday at Yankee Stadium, his previous high of four home runs.
