May 6: Red Sox 6, Twins 5 (F/11)
Recap: Leading 5-4 heading into the ninth, Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan gave up a game-tying home run to the Twins’ Brian Dozier. Hanrahan would later leave the game with forearm tightness, and it ended up being the last game he would pitch in 2013 because he was placed on the DL and underwent Tommy John surgery shortly thereafter. After a scoreless 10th inning, the Red Sox came up in the bottom of the 11th with the game still tied. The inning did not start off on the right note, as Mike Napoli grounded out to third and Daniel Nava flew out to give the Sox two outs. But Jarrod Saltalamacchia reached on an infield single, moved up to second on a single by Will Middlebrooks, and later scored the game winning run on a double off the Green Monster by Stephen Drew.
They said it: "I knew I hit it good. You never know here sometimes… It was a good night. Everybody battles, Salty beats it out and Middlebrooks gets a hit. We're just trying to have fun." – Stephen Drew
