1911 The Red Sox come back to beat the Tigers 13-11, overcoming a nine-run deficit in the Bennett Park contest. Duffy Lewis' tenth-inning grand slam proves to be the difference in the game that also featured Ty Cobb's first bases-loaded round-tripper.

1980 Fred Lynn's run-scoring triple in the eighth inning of the Red Sox's 10-5 victory over the Twins completes the 13th cycle in franchise history. The Boston outfielder, who collected four RBIs, hit a double in the first inning, drove in two with a fourth-inning round-tripper, pushed across another run with a single in the sixth frame of the Fenway Park contest.
2007 In the comeback, which will become known as the Mother's Day Miracle, the Red Sox rally for six runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat Baltimore at Fenway Park, 6-5. Before the final frame, Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie had blanked the opponents on three hits before Boston crossed the plate six times, thanks to two singles, two doubles, three walks, and two errors.

2008 Along with the Red Sox' loss, the Rays' 2-1 victory over the Yankees in 11 innings puts the team in sole possession of first place for the first time in franchise history. The win makes Tampa Bay seven games over .500 (23-16), a mark never accomplished during the first 11 seasons of the club's existence.
