For years, during rain delays and winter evenings, NESN has re-played the “Mother’s Day Miracle” from 2007.
After last night, they’ve got another option to replay, as the Red Sox trailed 6-0 heading into the bottom of the 6th inning. The Red Sox rallied scoring eight runs over the final four innings, capped by an Adrian Gonzalez two-run double off the wall to win the game 8-7 in the bottom of the ninth.
