Homer in 8th Helps Bring Sox Back

Stolen Goods | Boston 6, Chicago 3
Sox Lose Lead, But Rally Late to Squash Chicago
Ellsbury Breaks Team Steals Record With No. 55
Lester Great, But Gets a Hard-Luck No Decision

"This is always a constant battle. You go out there, you get a pitch you can drive, and I had some early on that I didn’t swing at. It’s kind of nice to do it when it matters, and put the team up. That's something I had done a little earlier in the year, with the big hits and then just kind of struggled for the month and a half there, so it was nice to kind of get back and have a big hit for the team when we needed it." -- Jason Bay after another big win
