NEW YORK (AP) - Top-seeded Novak Djokovic saved seven of eight break points Tuesday night to start the U.S. Open with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 victory over former junior world No. 1, Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania.

The victory took only 82 minutes for Djokovic, seeking his second title and fourth straight final at Flushing Meadows.

It was a quiet evening at Arthur Ashe Stadium, where the packed crowd barely cheered during the most routine of matches.

One of the few exciting moments came on the first point of the third set, when Djokovic lobbed Berankis and Berankis replied with a backward shot between his legs that Djokovic calmly flicked away for a volley winner.

The top-seeded Serb hit 28 winners, with only nine unforced errors.

NEW YORK (AP) - American teenager Victoria Duval stunned 2011 U.S. Open champion Sam Stosur in the tournament's first round Tuesday.

The 17-year-old qualifier, ranked 296th, won 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, leaping into the air in celebration after converting her fourth match point with a forehand winner.

Duval was playing in just her second Grand Slam match. She also faced a former U.S. Open champ, Kim Clijsters, in the first round at Flushing Meadows last year.

She was facing a top-20 opponent for the first time Tuesday.

The 11th-seeded Stosur had reached at least the quarterfinals in her last three trips to the U.S. Open. She had 56 unforced errors.

Duval was born in Miami but lived in Haiti until she moved back to the United States at age 8. She trains in Bradenton, Fla.

Note: Shane Victorino played one season of minor league baseball in Wilmington for the Wilmington Waves.

BOSTON (AP) - Shane Victorino homered twice and drove in a career-high seven runs to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 13-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

Felix Doubront pitched 6 2-3 innings of four-hit ball for AL East-leading Boston.

Victorino also had a two-run double in the seventh, and Dustin Pedroia had three hits for the Red Sox.

J.J. Hardy and Danny Valencia each had two of Baltimore's four hits. Wei-Yin Chen (7-7) lasted just 3 2-3 innings, allowing eight runs on eight hits and three walks. He struck out five and hit a batter.

Doubront (10-6) had only one bad inning, allowing the first four batters in Baltimore's two-run third to reach. But he retired 14 of the next 16 before leaving to a standing ovation from the Fenway Park crowd of 36,226.
