For a second straight game it was the previously slumping Mike Carp who had the big hit. Today, Carp drove in the tying run in the eighth inning in an eventual 7-4 Red Sox win. After Pedro Ciriaco had doubled, Carp drove him in and then Dustin Pedroia drove in Carp for the game-winner. Jon Lester struggled but persevered, yielding ten hits and four earned runs in seven innings. Jose Iglesias continued his claim to stay on the major league roster by notching three more hits and scoring two runs.
