Red Sox score 12 runs in sixth to hammer Indians

The Red Sox hustled into their dugout after the top of the sixth inning last night, and this is what occurred next: single, walk, double, walk, single, walk, double, single, single, single, single, home run.

Now read that line again slowly, and consider just what happened at Fenway Park last night in a 13-3 Red Sox victory before 37,541. Twelve batters crossed the plate before Indians pitchers - three of them - could record one out in the sixth. When Julio Lugo walked toward the batter’s box at 8:34 p.m., the Sox trailed, 2-1. When J.D. Drew grounded to second for the third out of the sixth 34 minutes and 21 seconds later, the Sox had an 11-run lead.
