Did the Red Sox have ten come-from-behind wins all last year? Well, your 2013 edition of the Carmine Hose just reached that milestone tonight, edging out the Twins, 3-2 in 10 innings. It was another terrific start by Clay Buchholz—who gave up just two earned runs and four hits over seven strong innings. After that, the Boston 'pen retired the last 17 Minnesota batters—including a great 1 2/3 inning stint by Andrew Miller. On the offensive side, Boston got  timely hitting by David Ortiz and  Jacoby Ellsbury—along with a sacrifice fly by Jonny Gomes to win it in the 10th. Ortiz continued to punish his old team, going 3 for 4 with an RBI and a walk. The Sox stay just one game out of first in the AL East.
