Recap

Dustin Pedroia belted a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the 10th inning to help the Boston Red Sox to a 13-11 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

Pedroia finished 5-for-5 with three home runs and five RBIs while scoring four runs in a wild affair that saw both teams rally back from deficits.

Adrian Beltre had a home run among three hits and three RBIs and Jason Varitek and Mike Cameron each drove in two runs apiece as Boston avoided the three-game series sweep.

With two outs in the 10th and Marco Scutaro on base, Pedroia belted his 12th homer of the campaign off Huston Street (0-1), who was making his second appearance since being activated from the disabled list.

Colorado forced extras by scoring a pair of runs in the ninth against Jonathan Papelbon (3-4), who blew his second save in as many nights. Brad Hawpe delivered the big hit with a two-run single to tie things at 11-11.

Pedroia and Beltre scored three runs apiece and every member of the starting lineup but one player recorded a base knock in the 15-hit attack.

The Red Sox were up against the wall after the Rockies scored six runs in the sixth to grab an 8-6 lead. They responded by scoring five runs over the next two innings to grab control.

In the seventh, Beltre singled in a run and Varitek brought two more home before Pedroia hit his second homer of the contest with a man on base to make it 11-8.

Hawpe drove in four runs and Todd Helton and Ian Stewart had two RBIs apiece in the losing effort.
