Episode Summary

2008 ALCS, Game 4: Rays at Red Sox
October 14th, 2008: Tampa Bay Rays 13 at Boston Red Sox 4 F -- One win separates the Rays from the Fall Classic. A nearly limitless supply of runs, a quality start and timely defense moved the Rays to within one win of reaching the World Series with a 13-4 win over the Red Sox in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series in front of 38,133 at Fenway Park. The Rays won for the 10th time in their last 13 meetings with the Red Sox and they now hold a 3-1 series advantage heading into Wednesday's off-day. Since 1985, the ALCS has produced three four-game sweeps, but in the other 19 series, the winner of Game 4 has advanced to the World Series 14 times. The Rays could move on to the Fall Classic with a win in Game 5 at Fenway Park. Carlos Pena started the Rays' offense with a two-run homer in the first off Boston starter Tim Wakefield. Evan Longoria followed with a home run to put the Rays up, 3-0. Longoria's blast gave him five for the postseason, which established a record for postseason home runs by a rookie. He surpassed Miguel Cabrera, who hit four home runs in 2003 for the Marlins. "It really doesn't matter what my stats look like at the end of the day as long as we get that 'W,'" Longoria said.moreless
