Memorable Moments for Julio Lugo
- 13 May 2007 - Dubbed the "Mother's Day Miracle" by the Boston media, the Red Sox rally from a one-out, 5-0 deficit and win 6-5 over the Orioles at Fenway Park. Boston scores four runs to get within one, then score the final two on a two-out single by shortstop Julio Lugo combined with an fielding error by pitcher Chris Ray as he covers first.
- 1 July 2009 - After relinquishing a nine-run lead to the Orioles the night before in an 11-10 loss, the Red Sox score four runs in the ninth to erase a 5-1 deficit and win 6-5 in 11 innings thanks to Julio Lugo's RBI single. Closer Jonathan Papelbon, who failed to set the franchise mark for career saves the previous night, pitches a perfect frame to give him 133 career saves, all with Boston.
