Episode Summary

2008 ALCS, Game 5: Rays at Red Sox
October 16th, 2008: Tampa Bay Rays 7 at Boston Red Sox 8 F -- For all the talk the Red Sox had about belief heading into their latest dire situation -- down, 3-1, in the American League Championship Series -- what they wound up creating was utter disbelief. In a comeback that goes up there with any in the history of postseason play, the Red Sox pulled out a season-saving 8-7 triumph over the Rays in a Game 5 instant classic that can go down in the category of near miraculous. A game that ended when J.D. Drew hit a screaming liner over the head of Tampa Bay right fielder Gabe Gross for a single that scored Kevin Youkilis with two outs in the bottom of the ninth seemed all but over entering the bottom of the seventh, when the Red Sox trailed, 7-0, against the red-hot Rays. Somehow, though, it wasn't over. And for those who still don't believe it, the Red Sox and Rays will indeed play Game 6 Saturday night at Tropicana Field.moreless
