THE STORY

Everett tied the score with a run in the bottom of the eighth inning, then won in its last at-bat.

Phillips Castillo's two-out home run made the score 5-5 in the eighth.

In the ninth, Michael Faulkner hit a one-out single, stole second, went to third on a passed ball and, after a walk and an intentional walk, scored on Justin Seager's game-winning ground single to the right side of the infield.

The Sox clinched the five-game series. They lead 3-1 going into Monday's finale.
