Red Sox force game seven

The resilient Boston Red Sox rallied just in time. Trailing by two runs, they rebounded with a three-run seventh inning to beat the New York Yankees 9-6 Wednesday and set up a whopper of a Game 7. David Ortiz tied it with a run-scoring single and Johnny Damon drove in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning.

That brings the series down to one game Thursday night, and it has all the makings of a classic: Roger Clemens versus Pedro Martinez.
