Sunday night’s game between the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles had just about everything and anything happen. Replay, idiot fans, bad pitching, good pitching, bad defense, good defense, you name it, it happened.
So it shouldn’t surprise you that the Red Sox scored the winning run on a David Lough throwing error that completed a come-from-behind 6-5 win at Fenway Park.
The Red Sox had the bases loaded in the 9th with one out when pinch-hitter Mike Carp lined out to Lough. Dustin Pedroia had started home then went back and tagged up. He then ran a little bit before heading back. But when Lough’s throw was off target, Pedey scampered home for the winning run.
It was Jonny Gomes who got the Red Sox back into the game after Ubaldo Jimenez had dominated them for the first five innings. His three run homer in the 6th inning cut the Orioles lead to 5-3. The local nine would add two more in the 7th before the crazy 9th inning.
David Ortiz had two hits and an RBI while Pedroia and Gomes both had two hits as well.
Jake Peavy started this one for the home team and was roughed up for five runs on 10 hits and four walks in 5.2 innings. The bullpen was solid over the final 3.1 innings allowing just two hits. Edward Mujica picked up the win after striking out the only batter he faced in the top half of the 9th.
