Aug. 1: Red Sox 5, Mariners 4 (F/15)
Recap: Despite little offense for most of the game, the Red Sox looked like they would be able to salvage a solid start from John Lackey when Dustin Pedroia hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the seventh to put the Sox up 4-3. But the Mariners tied the game in the eighth with a solo home run from Kyle Seager in the eighth inning to tie the game 4-4.
The Red Sox bullpen would bend, but not break, for seven innings after that, with Koji Uehara, Matt Thornton, Craig Breslow, and Drake Britton combining for seven shutout innings to keep the Sox in the game. The Sox then came up in the bottom of the 15th, and walks to Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli, and Jonny Gomes, coupled with two outs recorded by David Ortiz and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, brought Stephen Drew up to bat with the bases loaded and two outs. Drew drove an inside pitch down the right field line and into the stands, giving the Red Sox a 5-4 victory in 15 innings.
They said it: "It's just huge to get a win out of that game … Back and forth, their bullpen's doing well, our bullpen's doing well. We made some key plays that kept us in it. Overall it’s an exciting win and hopefully we keep this thing rolling." – Stephen Drew
