Will Middlebrooks' bases-loaded single in the bottom of the 8th inning scored Jonny Gomes with what proved to be the winning run as the Red Sox came from behind twice to beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 at Fenway Park.
The win gave the Red Sox a sweep of the 2-game series - their first sweep of any series this year - and FINALLY got the team to the elusive .500 mark.
The Reds took a 2-0 lead in the top of the 3rd inning on a 2-run home run by Skip Schumaker off Red Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy. Boston tied the game in the bottom of the 6th on an RBI single by David Ortiz and a run-scoring double by Mike Napoli.
The Reds scored a run in the top of the 7th on a bases-loaded ground out, setting the stage for Boston's 8th-inning comeback.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
