Wild 9th spoils Cardinals' finale at Fenway
AP
(MLB.com) The Red Sox pulled out a wild comeback at Fenway Park, as Mookie Betts delivered a two-out, two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning for a 5-4 victory over the Cardinals.

With Boston trailing 4-2 heading into the final frame, Xander Bogaerts made it a one-run game by leading off the inning with a homer against Trevor Rosenthal, who was pitching with significantly diminished velocity and was pulled by manager Mike Matheny after the next batter (Mitch Moreland) drew a six-pitch walk.

Lefty Zach Duke was lifted after a one-out walk to Jackie Bradley Jr. Matheny then went to rookie righty John Brebbia, but the Sharon, Mass., native couldn't get the job done while vying for his first career save.

With two outs, Betts smashed a 3-2 pitch into the left-field corner off the Green Monster. Chris Young scored from second to tie it and Bradley roared all the way around from first to make it to the plate, where catcher Yadier Molina couldn't hold on to the ...     [ More ]
