Sox Rally - BEAT Orioles 5-4

September 3. BOSTON. Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with a homer and a double to lead the Red Sox to a 5-4 come-from-behind victory over the Orioles on Wednesday.The Red Sox were down 4-0 before Pedroia's 17th homer put them on the board in the seventh. He then collected a double as part of a two-run eighth that tied the game. The Red Sox won it in the ninth after Alex Cora's single and two bunts. Coco Crisp's first sac attempt seemed sure to go foul, but it took a weird hop and stayed in play, allowing him to reach first base. Jacoby Ellsbury then put down a lousy bunt back to the pitcher. However, Jim Miller threw the ball into left field while trying to cut down the lead runner, ending the game. Pedroia improved to 12-for-18 with two homers and four doubles in four games as a cleanup hitter. He's overtaken Kevin Youkilis to become Boston's MVP candidate.
