Red Sox 6, Mets 5(6)

The video replay system at Fenway Park got used for the second straight day Sunday and umpires upheld their call that a drive by Boston's Kevin Youkilis was foul.

Replay was tried at Fenway for the first time Saturday night on Omir Santos' go-ahead, two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning against Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon in the New York Mets' 3-2 victory. The ball off the top of the left-field wall was originally ruled a double.

On Sunday, Youkilis hit a high fly near the foul pole and completely out of Fenway, with the ball bouncing in front of a bar beyond the Green Monster. Third base umpire and crew chief Joe West called the ball foul as Youkilis went running around first base.

After manager Terry Francona came from the dugout to argue, the umpires huddled before going to the tunnel inside Boston's dugout. A few minutes later, West came out and waved that the ball was foul.
