(Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)OK, be honest, did you go to sleep when Felix Hernandez had a 7-1 lead on the Red Sox going into the eighth inning? The 2013 Carmine Hose are proving that you can never go to sleep on them, scoring once in the eighth and six times in the ninth to beat Seattle with their 11th walk-off win, 8-7. Daniel Nava capped the rally will a single off the center field wall that plated the winning run. Key hits by Ryan Lavarnway, Brock Holt, Dustin Pedroia and Jonny Gomes preceded the game-winner. Stephen Wright collected the win—the rest of his victories are scattered across the other ballparks of America (extremely obscure reference alert). So, please, don't go to sleep on these guys—or at least set your DVR to "record".

The Red Sox are back in first place in the American League East after a 15-inning marathon win against the Mariners on Wednesday night, and now they have a chance to sweep Seattle right out of town.
But if Boston is going to win three straight against the Mariners, the Sox will have to beat Felix Hernandez, who hasn’t lost a game since May 25.
Hernandez is pitching lights-out baseball...
While the Red Sox have posted 11 walk-off wins this season, perhaps none was as incredible as what happened Thursday night. Just hours after a 15-inning, walk-off win the night before, Boston did it again — but, this time, the Sox had to come back from a 7-2 deficit in the ninth.
Daniel Nava led off the ninth inning with a walk, and he closed it out, too, following a parade...
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...
BOSTON — Daniel Nava killed a rally on Monday against the Rays. He ignited and capped a rally on Thursday against the Mariners.
Nava, whose baserunning blunders played a crucial role in Boston’s 2-1 loss on Monday, totally redeemed himself on Thursday. He worked a leadoff walk to begin the ninth inning, and he later capped a six-run rally by hammering a ball over Michael Saunders’...
John Farrell called Thursday night’s thrilling comeback win “magical.” Daniel Nava wouldn’t go that far, but he did say that rallying from five runs down to win in the ninth inning was a whole lot of fun.
Nava provided the exclamation point for that rally, singling off the center field wall with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth to give the Red Sox their second...

The Red Sox have had two walk-off wins to begin the month of August – both of them coming on August 1st. The more dramatic and fun (if there’s such a thing as a “lesser” walk-off win) was undoubtedly last night’s affair, when the Sox scored six runs in the bottom of the ninth inning.
I had essentially written off the game as a loss before it started...

Sox go loco in the 9th, win 8-7

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
By now, it’s bordering on the absurd.
All season, the Red Sox have made a habit of ninth-inning comebacks and walkoff dramatics at Fenway Park. But even they had no business doing what they did in the ninth...

night at Fenway, your Sox pulled off a stunning comeback and turned what appeared
at one point to certainly be a loss into the team’s 66th win of the
