(AP Photo/Winslow Townson) Wowzas! The Sox put together some rally in the ninth and scored 4 times to take the final game of the series, 6-5.  The Sox were down 2 right out of the gate and they just couldn't get anything going until late. Well, Daniel Nava drove in Drew on a single in the 3rd and that was about it until the 8th. Stephen Drew tripled to right to lead off the 8th. Jose Iglesias followed with a sac-fly that was plenty deep enough to left to score Drew from third, to bring the Sox within 3. Craig Breslow made quick work of the Indians in the 9th (after looking shaky and giving up a run in the 8th) to give the Sox somewhat of a chance to come up with something. With the way the rest of the game went, it looked like it was over. The Sox came out firing in the 9th. After Pedey walked, Big Papi hit a shot to center to move Pedey to third. Napoli drove Pedroia in on a ground-out and David Ortiz did it again. Doing his best Dave Roberts impression, David Ortiz stole third AGAIN! I know Roberts stole second in 2004, but just go with it. Salty followed with another ground-out, but Ortiz's steal came up big as he scored on it to bring the Sox within 1 with two outs. Gomes walked, Drew singled to center to move Gomes to third, Jose Iglesias walked to load them for Jacoby Ellsbury. You know where I am going with this. Ellsbury came up huge with a walk-off double to center to drive in the winning run and complete one of the best Red Sox comebacks we have seen in a while. Doubront pitched fairly well in his 6 innings of work (5 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 8 K), he just didn't get much run support,  and had to work very hard, throwing 112 pitches. This was a fantastic win for the Sox today, and this momentum should help them take care of the mediocre Philadelphia Phillies this week. Box Score
