Curt tires in the 7th (6.2-8-3-2-7, 99), but Okajima and the Papelbot nail it down.
Cora, filling in at short for Lugo, singled twice (and nearly got a third hit on a drag bunt in the 9th) and scored twice. Pedroia doubled twice and singled.
At one point, NESN showed Manny and Sexy Lips on the bench, Manny with his arm around Tavarez, softly petting his head like he was a cute dog. They seemed quite cozy. (Maybe SG will offer us a screen shot; they recently blessed us with the DP Hug.)
