5. Mike Carp makes impact in back-to-back games versus Indians. (May 25)
Who knew that Mike Carp would be a guy to make an impact in Terry Francona’s return to Fenway Park? Carp launched a three-run homer versus the Indians on May 24, and then smacked a pinch-hit, game-tying double in the eighth inning on May 25. The Red Sox won both games while taking three of four from the Tribe.
