Good teams find ways to win games like this—especially at home against crappy opponents like the Phillies. So, when 'Wicked Unattractive' Rick Porcello coughed up four first-inning runs, things were looking bleak. But Boston chipped away at the lead—finally tying it in the fourth. Of course, Porcello immediately gave up another run—until Hanley Ramirez tied things again at 5-5 with a laser shot into the Monster Seats. So it went until the 11th—when Dustin Pedroia—who had nearly won it earlier with a shot off the very top of the Monster—singled home the game-winner. More good bullpen work helped the cause (five scoreless innings), all in service of the 6-5 win.
