Perhaps that shake upside-down turned things around for Coco Crisp. Or maybe it was those bunt hits the other day in Toronto.
But the struggling Crisp just tripled home two runs in the eighth inning against Mariano Rivera to tie the game at 6-6, scoring Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek.
And then yesterday’s hero, Alex Cora, fisted a single over shortstop Derek Jeter.
Sox up, 7-6.
