Lugo out, Cora in

Alex Cora has come in to replace Julio Lugo with one out in the top of the 11th inning with Jason Varitek on first base.

This is a departure from Terry Francona’s decison, in the eighth, to let Lugo hit for himself with men on first and second. In that at bat, Lugo worked the count to 3-0 before striking out swinging to end the inning.
