ALCS Game 4: Boston 6, New York 4 (12 innings). There -- now that wasn't so hard, was it?

Lowe pitches a solid 5.1, the Yankees blow leads of 2-0 and 4-3, Embree and Foulke pitch some ballsy relief, Boston scores the tying run off Rivera on only 8 pitches in the bottom of the 9th (Millar walk, Roberts SB, Mueller single up the middle that knocks Rivera on his ass), Cabrera grabs an A-Rod liner headed to left with a man at second in the 11th and then (with the bases loaded) Leskanic gets Williams on a fly to Damon to preserve the 4-4 tie, Manny singles to left off Quantrill to start the 12th and Ortiz follows by pounding a 2-1 fastball to right to give the Red Sox the win and force a Game 5 at later today.

Pedro/Mussina at 5:00 pm. ... Just win one game. Not three, not two. Only one. Tonight.
