GAME 25: RED SOX vs. A's

The Red Sox went up 4-0 in the early innings and Schilling was cruising striking out 7 and only giving up 2 runs on a solo homer and a sac fly on which Coco made a spectacular catch. Okajima pitched a scoreless 8th and then came in Pap in the 9th. Game over right? Wrong :( First he gave up a single and then he gave up a 2 run homer stunning the crowd. He got out of the inning with no more damage but that was enough.

The Sox came up empty in the bottom of the 9th and in the 10th Donnely gave up a lead off double and eventually the game winning run. In the bottom of the 10th A's closer Huston Street retired Ortiz, Manny (strike out) and Youk on a long fly ball to win the game.

RED SOX 4 A's 5 (10 innings)
