Your 2013 Carmine Hose are now tied for first place in the AL East. Down 5-2 going into the bottom of the ninth, Boston rallied for four runs—capped by a two-run, walk-off gap shot double by Jacoby Ellsburyto beat Cleveland 6-5 and take the season series 6-1. Felix Doubront had another typically schizophrenic start, going six innings and giving up just two earned runs. However, he coughed up two big home runs as well. Dustin Pedroia led off the ninth with a walk, followed by a David Ortiz double. Two ground outs made the score 5-4. Two more walks and a single followed, then Ellsbury delivered the decisive blow.
