MLB: Boston 12, Cleveland 2

Oct. 21, 2007 at 12:16 AM   |   Comments

BOSTON, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- J.D. Drew hit a first-inning grand slam and Boston scored six times in the third Saturday night, as the Red Sox beat Cleveland, 12-2, to tie the ALCS, 3-3.

The Red Sox forced a deciding Game 7 in the American League Championship Series Sunday night in Boston, with the winner advancing to the World Series vs. the Colorado Rockies.

Drew went 3-for-5 and drove in five runs, and Julio Lugo added a two-run double for the Red Sox, who have come back from a 3-1 deficit in the series. Kevin Youkilis had three hits with an RBI and scored twice.

The Red Sox are trying to become just the fourth team in 14 post-season series to win after trailing 3-1 in a best-of-seven set. Boston has already accomplished that twice -- rallying for four straight wins to beat the Yankees in the 2004 ALCS and coming back from a 3-1 deficit to top the Angels in the 1986 ALCS.

Curt Schilling got the win after pitching seven innings and giving up two runs on six hits.

Fausto Carmona took the loss. He left the game after allowing six hits and seven runs over two-plus innings.

Victor Martinez homered for Cleveland.
