It was the biggest comeback of the year for The Carmine Hose. Down 6-1, they rallied to tie the game in the seventh—only to cough up the lead in the twelfth and go on to their 49th defeat of the year, 7-6. Edward Mujica delivered a clean 11th inning, but gave up a lead-off triple in the 12th—and that was pretty much it. The rally was sparked initially by a solo David Ross HR. Then, four successive singles made it 6-4. Later, two more singles by David Ortiz and Mike Napoli tied it. But, the bottom line is the Red Sox are nine games behind the division-leading Orioles and ten games under .500.
