Mark Kotsay came up huge for the Boston Red Sox on Wednesdsay night as he delivered the game winning double in the bottom of the eighth inning as the Red Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4. Kostay also had a rbi single in the first inning as he finished the game with two rbi.
David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, and Chris Carter all had one rbi as well in the game as the Red Sox got just enough offense to beat the Tribe.
Paul Byrd was the starting pitcher for the sox and he lasted just five innings as he gave up 11 hits and four runs. David Aardsma ended up getting the victory for the sox as he pitched in relief. Manny Delcarmen pitched the ninth inning and picked up his second save of the season.
The Sox and Indians will play once again on Thursday afternoon. Right now it pretty much looks like the Red Sox will be the wild card winner as the Tampa Bay Rays just keep on winning. Red Sox and Angels should be a very good ALCS matchup!
