Couldn't have put it better myself.
Koji Uehara on for Red Sox. One pitch, one out.— Eye on Baseball (@EyeOnBaseball) October 8, 2013
We couldn't ask for much more from this game, folks. It's been a nail-biter all game, and now we're heading to the bottom of the ninth in a tied game that could end the Rays' season.
Can you say DRAMA?
Ellsbury steals third, so Red Sox with go-ahead run 90 feet away— Eye on Baseball (@EyeOnBaseball) October 8, 2013
Dropping a bunt gives the Red Sox runners on second and third and one out. Rays opt not to walk Pedroia. Not the call I would've made.
Did not expect bad defense from the infield to cost the Red Sox the fourth run.— OverTheMonster (@OverTheMonster) October 8, 2013
Drew and Pedroia get tangled up on grounder, Rays now have bases loaded, one out. Tied 3-3 in bottom eight— Eye on Baseball (@EyeOnBaseball) October 8, 2013
Horrible miscue costs the Red Sox a potential double play, and certainly costs them an out. Bases loaded, one out for Young, who is batting for Molina.
And so Game 3 comes down to...Brandon Workman.— OverTheMonster (@OverTheMonster) October 8, 2013
Infield single on a bunt and now the Rays are in business. Two on, no one out.
Morales threw that about 50 ft. Great glove by Salty to avoid the wild pitch.— DRaysBay (@draysbay) October 8, 2013
Rodney warming for the ninth.— Alex Speier (@alexspeier) October 8, 2013
And the missed call changes nothing, in the end: Red Sox 3, Rays 3, going to the bottom of the eighth.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) October 8, 2013
Tough night for Saltalamacchia: Eight missed swings tonight.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) October 8, 2013
Three pitches right down the middle set Saltalamacchia down on strikes. A couple of big whiffs and now the Rays could get out of this.
