G69: Red Sox 6, Marlins 5

Marlins - 300 002 000 - 5  7  0
Red Sox - 000 210 03x - 6  9  0
Will Middlebrooks went 3-for-4, with four RBI, including a two-run, game-tying home run in the eighth inning. Daniel Nava's second single of the night (and sixth hit in the last two games) drove in Ryan Kalish a few minutes later with the go-ahead run as the Red Sox swept the Marlins.

Again, Matsuzaka (5.1-4-4-1-4, 101) had a rough first inning, allowing three hits, one walk, and three runs; the Marlins also stole three bases. After Miami took a 3-0 lead, Dice then retired the next 14 batters.

Scott Atchison threw two scoreless innings (seventh and eighth) in relief, and Alfredo Aceves pitched the ninth, needing only seven pitches to notch the save.

Our trip was GREAT! I hope someone started the thread. We got home at 8:00 and are watching the game from the beginning, so no threading!

I am not sure there is another player on the roster who goes to third on that play, like Kalish did..
