Episode Summary

2008 ALCS, Game 2: Red Sox at Rays
October 11th, 2008: Boston Red Sox 8 at Tampa Bay Rays 9 F -- Bleary-eyed Rays fans will be staggering around Sunday, but there is no doubt they will be doing so with smiles on their faces. The Rays managed to take Game 2 of the American League Championship Series after it began Saturday night and spilled over into Sunday morning, five hours and 27 minutes after Scott Kazmir threw the first pitch. Fittingly, the end arrived dripping with excitement when B.J. Upton lifted a fly ball to shallow right field with one out in the bottom of the 11th. Everyone in the ballpark knew about the speed of pinch-runner Fernando Perez, who stood on third base. What they didn't know was whether that speed could carry Perez home with the winning run before the throw from Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew reached home. Perez answered that question in a cloud of dust at home when he slapped his palm on the plate to mint the 9-8 walk-off win over the Red Sox. The Rays' victory tied up the series at one game apiece, much to the approval of a sellout crowd of 34,904 at Tropicana Field.moreless
