Six months later, the Red Sox came back on the Indians again. Manny Ramirez hit a two-run homer—No. 493 of his career—and Boston rallied for three runs in the ninth inning against closer Joe Borowski for a 6-4 win Monday night over Cleveland in a stunning rerun of last October's AL championship series.
Ramirez's shot to left off Borowski (0-2) was just the latest Red Sox comeback against the Indians. Last fall, Boston rallied from a 3-1 ALCS deficit to beat Cleveland and advance to the World Series. The stakes weren't nearly as high this time, but the Red Sox came through again. And so did Ramirez.
