The Red Sox gave up more late-inning runs, but held on to win in 10 innings, 3-2. Pedro Ciriaco picked up only one hit and it was a big one, an RBI single in the top of the 10th that proved to be the game-winner.

The Red Sox scored two runs in the 2nd inning via a Ryan Sweeney 2-run double. Felix Doubront did a great job preserving that lead until he surrendered a solo homer to Russell Martin in the 7th. Doubront came out in the 7th after going 6 1/3, giving up 4 hits, that one run, 5 walks and striking out 8. Yeah, 5 walks. Felix pitched around those walks and none of them did any further damage. The bullpen did a decent job until the bottom of 8th with 2 outs. Enter, Alfredo Aceves with an inherited runner on second from Andrew Miller. Once again, Russell Martin came though for the Yankees and singled home Andruw Jones from second to tie the game and hand Alfredo Aceves his 5th blown save of the season.

Neither team could come up with anything in the 9th, bringing the game to extras in the **** hole Bronx.

The 10th inning was quite interesting. Jarrod Saltalamacchia drew a walk to start the inning. Will Middlebrooks followed and on a bunt attempt, he was clearly hit on the wrist by a pitch inside. It looked as if Middlebrooks brought the bat back, but it was ruled foul ball, leading to a Bobby Valentine ejection. Valentine's best buddy, Josh Beckett was also ejected for flapping his gums from the dugout. When the dust settled, Will Middlebrooks hit a single to left on the very next pitch. After a Sweeney fielders choice that moved Salty to third, Pedro Ciriaco came to the plate with a chance to be a hero for the Sox again. He delivered. Ciriaco hit an "excuse me" bloop single to right that scored Salty from third that was ultimately the winning run and was his only hit. Alfredo Aceves finished the job he screwed up and pitched an almost perfect 10th (HBP of Swisher), to get his 2nd win of the season.

If you are still awake, crack open another beer and celebrate, the Sox have won a series against the Yankees and are streaking!
