It started simply enough, the Sox were down 5-0 going to the bottom of the 9th against the Orioles and with one out Coco Crisp hit a pop in front of the plate. It fell to the ground, he was safe, and a few minutes later Eric Hinske was sprinting home for the sixth run and a win.
Lugo had led off with a groundout and Coco followed with the ROE. Ortiz then doubled scoring Crisp; the immortal Willie Mo Pena then singled past 3rd. With Chris Ray pitching, J.D. Drew walked and then Kevin Youkilis (of course) walked on a 3-2 pitch driving in a run.
Varitek doubled scoring Pena and Drew and it was 5-4 Orioles. Hinske was intentionally walked loading the bases and Cora then grounded out, forcing Youkilis at home. Lugo came to bat for the second time in the inning, this time with the bases loaded. After working the count to 3-2, with the Feway faithful now in full throat, he hit a weak grounder between 1st and second. Scored charitably as a single, Lugo reached when Ray dropped a toss from Kevin Millar while covering first on the grounder. Varitek and Hinske raced home . . . . walkoff!
