Video: Red Sox Rally For Improbable 8-7 Win To Complete Sweep Of Mariners

Okay, admit it. You gave up on the Boston Red Sox at about the 7th inning when they found themselves trailing 7-1 to the Seattle Mariners, especially with King Felix Hernandez on the mound.

But once the Red Sox got into the Mariners bullpen, they started their comeback. A run in the 8th followed by six runs in the 9th capped off by Daniel Nava's single gave them the improbable 8-7 win and a sweep of the Seattle Mariners at historic Fenway Park on Thursday night.

With the Rays off on Thursday, the Red Sox now have a one game lead over them in the AL East.
