MLB video highlights: Red Sox walk off with win over Yankees

In a game very similar to one of the Red Sox’ wins last year, the Red Sox overcame a 5-0 deficit, fought their way back, and eventually earned a 6-5 walk off win over the Orioles Sunday night at Fenway Park.

With the game tied at five in the ninth inning Dustin Pedroia led the inning off with a ball off the wall that was ruled a double on the field, but may have cleared the red line for a home run. After a review it was determined the play was inconclusive and the play on the field stood. Following an intentional walk, a pitching change and a hit batter, the stage was set for Mike Carp, who pinch-hit for Jonny Gomes.

Carp’s line drive was caught in shallow left field by David Lough with Pedroia fake-tagging on the play drawing a throw to the plate, which catcher Matt Wieters couldn’t handle and Pedroia was able to run home on the error giving the Red Sox their first walk off win of 2014.

The Sox found themselves down 5-0, but a Gomes three-run homer in the sixth gave them life and then they scored two unearned runs in the seventh. The bullpen delivered 3 1/3 scoreless innings of relief with Edward Mujica (1/3 inning) getting the win to help set up the dramatics in the ninth

Starter Jake Peavy didn’t have his best stuff as he allowed five runs on ten hits 5 2/3 innings of work. O’s starter Ubaldo Jimenez was impressive allowing three runs on four hits in 5 1/3 innings, but the Red Sox’ ability to work the count got to him, playing a factor in the Gomes homer and eventual removal from the game throwing 107 pitches.

The teams will conclude their four-game series in the traditional Marathon Monday game (11:05, NESN) with Clay Buchholz going up against Wei-Yin Chen.

What they’ll be saying: It was the Red Sox’ bullpen which came through again, a part of their team that has been outstanding to open the season. In 29 innings over the last 10 games the bullpen has allowed just four earned runs lowering their ERA to 2.30 on the season … The team is used to playing in close games as seven of the Sox’ games this season have been decided in a teams’ last at-bat, with the Red Sox winning four of those games.
