Four highlights:

1917: Babe Ruth gave up one earned run on 7 hits, but the second run scored on an error in the 8th, and Cleveland won 2-1 at Fenway.

1926: In game 1, we score 6 in the 4th to go up 6-0, only to have Cleveland score 7 in the bottom half. We scored one in the 8th and once in the 10th to pull it out, 8-7. In game 2, Paul "You Can't Call Me Paula Zahn Because She Isn't Born Yet" Zahniser throws a 5-hit shutout in the 2-0 Boston win.

1943: Sox go down 8-0, then 10-1. Down 11-3 going to the bottom of the ninth, they score 6 times to cut it to 11-9, before Tony Lupien pops out to end it.

1958: Sox sweep a doubleheader in Cleveland, winning game 1 on a Ted Williams dong in the ninth, and game 2 with a 4-run eighth. Jackie Jensen threw out Rocky Colavito at the plate in the first game (see high-quality pic). The Red Sox jumped into 2nd place, and the Tribe fell from 2nd to 5th that day (in what was really a race to see who'd come in second to the Yanks).

2011: Cleve @ SOX, 7:10. Carrasco vs. Wake, looking for career win #200
