After what was a back-and-forth game the whole night the Cleveland Indians broke open the 11th inning scoring 7 runs en route to a 13-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox tying the series at 1-1.
Eric Gagne once again did not hold the fort down getting no outs and leaving two runners on base before getting the hook for Javier Lopez to face Trot Nixon.
Nixon who has been cheered for all season long by Red Sox fans certainly will not get the same treatment becoming the villain as he lined a singled up the middle off of Lopez to give the Indians the lead for good 7-6.
A few more runs knocked in off of Lopez and a three-run homerun by Franklin Guitierrez off of Jon Lester was the exclamation point capping off the seven run 11th inning for Cleveland.
Julio Lugo grounded into a double-play to end a game that lasted 5 hours and 14 minutes, a long 5 hours and 14 minutes at that.
Both starting pitchers, Fausto Carmona and Curt Schilling, did not get past the fourth inning as Carmona pitched for 4 innings and Schilling for 4 2/3 innings. Carmona gave up four runs on 100 pitches and Schilling five runs, three on a Jhonny Peralta 3-run jack, on 85 pitches as both starting pitchers were ineffective.
Daisuke Matsuzaka will face Jake Westbrook on Monday at 7 p.m. ET as Boston looks to rebound after suffering a loss in a game that the Red Sox seemed they were going to come away with.
Just not our night.
