Red Sox Take Advantage of Rule Book, Walk Off on Rays To Take Lead in ALDS
The Boston Red Sox were saved by a lucky bounce that cost Tampa Bay a certain run and maybe more in Game 3 of the AL Division Series.
Boston beat the Rays 6-4 in 13 innings on Christian Vázquez’s walk-off, two-run homer. They are one win from eliminating the 100-win Rays from the AL Division Series. Kiké Hernández and Kyle Schwarber each had three hits, including a homer, for the wild-card winners, who took a 2-1 lead over the AL East champions in the best-of-five series. Game 4 is Monday — Marathon Day in Boston.
