Red Sox Reclaim First Place

The Boston Red Sox beat the Seattle Mariners in 15 last night and moved atop the AL East leaderboard.

Red Sox Reclaim First Place

The Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners in 15 innings last night. Stephen Drew was the hero of the evening, hitting a walk-off single that scored Dustin Pedroia from third base.

With their win last night, Boston moved a half-game ahead of Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East. The Rays fell behind the Sox with their 7-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

The Red Sox were down by one in the 7th when Pedroia blasted a 2-run homer over the Green Monster into the parking lot. However, an inning later Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager tied up the game with a solo home run.

The Mariners left two men on in both the 11th and 12th innings, which perhaps could have determined the game, however the game remained tied until the 15th.

In the bottom of the inning, Dustin Pedroia got on base by forcing a leadoff walk. David Ortiz grounded out, but moved Pedroia into scoring position. The next batter was Mike Napoli who was walked intentionally bringing up Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who struck out. The next batter, Jonny Gomes walked, loading the bases. Stephen Drew hit a liner just inside the right-field line and gave the Sox the walk-off victory. 

Watch the walk-off hit here!

The game lasted a total of 5 hours and 3 minutes, the longest game of the Red Sox season. It was the Sox 10th walkoff victory of the season, the most they've had in one season since 1996.

The Red Sox play the Seattle Marieners again tonight. The game starts at 7:10 ET.
