BALTIMORE -- For the first time this season, the Baltimore Orioles are looking up at two teams in the AL East. Iman Shumpert Cavaliers Jersey .Baltimore managed only four hits off David Price before a rainstorm stopped play for good after six innings, and the Boston Red Sox pounded rookie Dylan Bundy in an 8-1 victory Wednesday night.It was the sixth loss in nine games for the Orioles, who fell into third place in the division behind Toronto and Boston. Before this defeat, Baltimore was in first or second place since opening day.Weve got to keep doing some things to keep us engaged in it, to have a chance in September, manager Buck Showalter said. Theres a lot of baseball to be played.In order to keep pace in a very tight division, the Orioles are going to need better starting pitching. In this one, Bundy (6-4), a rookie, allowed five runs and nine hits in 4 1/3 innings against the highest-scoring team in the majors.I threw some good pitches and they still hit them, Bundy said. So, its just one of those nights. Just got to learn from it and get better from here.The Orioles 39-19 home record is the best in the AL, but theyre 2-4 against the Red Sox at Camden Yards after Bostons two-game sweep.Still, its way too early to panic.I mean its so close, the separation between the teams, said Chris Davis, whose solo homer accounted for all of Baltimores offense. The important part is to keep going. There is still plenty of time left to regroup and get back on track.Jackie Bradley Jr. homered and drove in four runs for the Red Sox, who have won six straight following a 7-13 run.Our starters have set the tone in this stretch, manager John Farrell said.Price (11-8) was cruising until a driving storm stopped play, and the game was finally called after a delay of 1 hour, 17 minutes.Price struck out four and walked none to earn his second victory in seven starts since July 10.Well go as far as the starters take us, and weve thrown the ball well as a group, the left-hander said.Boston outscored the Orioles 13-4 in the two games.We didnt pitch particularly well in certain spots, Showalter conceded.Orioles nemesis Mookie Betts went 2 for 3 with a walk and scored three runs. Betts is batting .440 with eight homers, 19 runs scored and 17 RBI in 12 games against Baltimore this season.The game turned in the third inning with the score tied at 1. Bundy awkwardly toppled off the mound chasing a grounder to the right side and appeared to twist his right ankle. He declared himself OK after taking a few warmup pitches, and play resumed with two outs and the bases empty.Bundy issued a two-out walk to Betts on a 3-2 count, and Bradley followed with a drive that cleared the wall in center field.Sandy Leon hit a two-run shot in the fifth and Bradley doubled in two runs in the sixth against Tyler Wright.MILESTONEFarrell picked up his 313th win as Red Sox manager, moving past Ralph Houk for sole possession of ninth place in club history. Eddie Kasko ranks eighth with 345 wins.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez showed no lingering effects from the left hamstring tightness that forced him to leave Tuesdays game. At this point, were planning on him starting on Sunday, Farrell said. ... RHP Steven Wright (right shoulder strain) will have a bullpen session Saturday before coming off the DL on Tuesday.Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (shoulder soreness) remains on course to start Saturday after being pushed back from Wednesday, Showalter said. ... OF Joey Rickard (thumb ligament) will be in a splint for 2/3 more weeks before starting baseball activities.UP NEXTRed Sox: RHP Clay Buchholz (4-9, 5.66) makes his 14th start of the season Thursday afternoon in the opener of a four-game series in Detroit.Orioles: RHP Kevin Gausman (3-10, 4.04) heads to the mound to help launch a four-game series against the visiting Houston Astros.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The Paralympics leadership hoped Rio de Janeiro would build on the success of London. Instead, its about limiting any damage.When the curtain comes up for 4,300 athletes at Wednesdays opening ceremony, almost everything will be scaled back: venues, seating, and staffing. Paralympic officials say that no sports or nations have been cut out, but the athlete experience could suffer.Only a last-minute Brazilian government bailout has helped save the event from a shortfall in the local, privately funded operating budget.This is the worst situation that weve ever found ourselves in at Paralympic movement, Philip Craven, the president of the International Paralympic Committee, told The Associated Press. We were aware of difficulties, but we werent aware it was as critical as this.Rio organizers limped through the troubled Olympics, buffeted by empty seats, green water in swimming pools, and the absence of an Olympic feel. Behind the scenes there were no-show volunteers, street crime and traffic chaos.Craven said hes been assured there are sufficient resources to put on a very good games.Heres a look at the Sept. 7-18 Paralympics featuring athletes from 161 nations, and an added refugee team:---FINANCINGThe Rio Olympic organizing committee promised to use only private money in its 7.4 billion real ($2.3 billion) operating budget. But Craven said local organizers didnt tell him until about 5 1/2 weeks ago that there was no money left to run the Paralympics.They blamed it on slow ticket and sponsorship sales, and the rising cost to run the Olympics.Thats been a problem with the organizing committee -- not knowing information, Craven said.To salvage the event, the Rio city government came up with 150 million reals ($46.3 million) in financing, and the federal government has guaranteed another 100 million reals ($30.7 million). This comes in the form of sponsorships from three state-run entities including the scandal-plagued oil company Petrobras.A local prosecutor argued unsuccessfully that the privately-run organizing committee needed to open its books to justify the government bailout.The influx of public money is still less than half of the $170 million that Rio organizers promised for Paralympic funding in their 2009 bid to the International Olympic Committee.The bailout comes as Rio hospitals are understaffed, and some school classes have been suspended because teachers are staying away to protest delayed payments.The Brazilian newspaper Estadao reported last month that the top eight executives of the Rio organizing committee were each paid an average of $25,000 per month in 2015.International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach flatly denied public money was being used to patch up the local budget.There is no public money in the organization of these Olympic Games, Bach said the day before the Olympics closed -- and a day after the city hall financing was announced. The budget of the organizing committee is privately financed. There is no public funding for this.---NO SPORTS CUTParalympic organizers sayy there have been no cuts to the sports, all will be contested as planned, and no delegations were forced to drop out. Richard Jefferson Cavaliers Jersey. All the teams will be here, Craven said.All of Russias disabled athletes have been banned from the Paralympics for alleged involvement in Russias doping scandal. The ruling was upheld by the Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sport.Paralympic organizers originally planned for 4,350 athletes. Paralympic spokesman Craig Spence said all of the 267 slots allotted to Russian athletes could not be filled, dropping the athlete total to 4,300.He said athletes were ring-fenced from the cuts, but acknowledged theyll still feel them.The service levels will be the same, but probably the athlete experience compared to previous games will suffer a little bit, Spence said.---TICKETSOrganizers hope to sell just over 2 million of the 2.5 million tickets available. Tickets are priced at 10 reals ($3), with some fans buying tickets as a cheap way to see the Olympic Park with no guarantee they will actually attend a sports events.Organizers say sales have soared in the last two weeks with sales best for track and field, swimming, wheelchair basketball, five-a-side football, and seated volleyball.Most of the events will be held in the Olympic Park in suburban Barra da Tijuca. The second Olympic cluster in Deodoro has been scaled back and will host only three sports -- shooting, seven-player football and equestrian events. Wheelchair fencing has been moved from Deodoro to the Olympic Park.Paralympic officials say if 1.8 million are sold it would be the second-best selling Paralympics after London four years ago. Beijing eight years ago drew 3.3 million, but only 1.7 million tickets were sold.There are not going to be empty stadiums, Craven said. Dont worry about it.---SOME STARSHere are some to watch .Two visually impaired athletes -- Jason Smyth of Ireland and Omara Durand of Cuba -- are likely to be the fastest man and woman over 100 meters. American Tatyana McFadden is hoping to become the first track and field athlete to win seven golds at one Paralympic Games. 74-year-old Libby Kosmala of Australia is competing in her 12th Paralympics; Jonas Jacobsson, 51, of Sweden in his 10th -- both in shooting. Siamand Rahman of Iran will try to become the first Paralympian to lift 300 kilos in powerlifting. Zahra Nemati, who was the flagbearer for Iran in the Rio Olympics, is the first Iranian woman to win gold in either the Olympics or Paralympics -- she won gold in archery in Londons Paralympics. Brazilian swimmer Daniel Dias, who is seen as the Michael Phelps of the Paralympics, won four gold medals in Beijing and six in London, where he also set four world records. American Matt Stutzman is an armless archer who holds a world record for long-distance accuracy.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: .
