Episode Summary

2008 ALCS, Game 3: Rays at Red Sox
October 14th, 2008: Tampa Bay Rays 9 at Boston Red Sox 1 F -- If ever a game shouldn't have been played, Game 3 of the American League Championship Series was it, according to the experts. No way were the Rays supposed to win this one. Jon Lester was the starter for the Red Sox and had not allowed an earned run in the postseason since Game 2 of last year's ALCS. Alas, Monday night validated an old cliché that says, "That's why they play the games." The Rays jumped on Lester early and added further damage against his replacement while the "other" pitcher, Matt Garza, gave the Rays a quality start en route to a 9-1 win at Fenway Park. The Rays took a 2-1 advantage in the series -- thanks in large part to two big homers over the famed Green Monster in left field -- and from an historical perspective, they greatly enhanced their chances of winning the series. In best-of-seven ALCS history, if the road team wins Game 3 after the series was tied at 1-1, that team has won the series six out of eight times.moreless
