Video: Sizemore Gives Red Sox 4-3 Walk-Off Win Over Reds

 Grady Sizemore #38 of the Boston Red Sox is mobbed by teammates including Will Middlebrooks #16 and Jonathan Herrera ##10 after hitting his walk-off hit in the bottom of the 12th inning against the Cincinatti Reds during the interleague game at Fenway Park on May 6, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. There was no Carlton Fisk home run nor was there a Joe Morgan World Series winning single. While the memories of the 1975 World Series were there between the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox, it was a different kind of feeling at Fenway Park on Tuesday night. It was the feeling of triumph this time for the home team when Grady Sizemore singled in David Ortiz to give the Red Sox a 4-3 walk-off win over the Reds. Sizemore’s walk-off single was his third hit of the night and second RBI. Dustin Pedroia also had three hits while Mike Napoli had the other two Red Sox RBIs with a single and bases loaded walk. Felix Doubront started this one and didn’t pitch all that badly allowing just one run on five hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. His only problem was the high pitch count that saw him exit the game earlier than he would have liked. This seems to be one of his consistent issues. Burke Badenhop did his job to get it to the Japanese combo at the end of the game in Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara. Unfortunately, Tazawa had an off night and gave up two runs. But the rest of the bullpen picked him up Andrew Miller striking out four over two innings and Craig Breslow picking up the win.
