Carlos Pena’s three-run opposite field three-run homer off of Mike Timlin was the difference in a 4-2 loss to Tampa.
This marks the first time that the Rays have ever won a series at Fenway and they now take a 2 1/2 game lead over the Red Sox in the A. L. East.
Goat of the Game: Timlin/Bay
In a 14 inning game I think it is justifiable to have two goats here. Timlin is obvious in this situation. Bay - sorry I know it is your first time being the goat but it is warranted here - went 0-7 and it seemed as if the Baseball Gods wanted him to provide the game winning hit but it just never happened. 18 men left on base is also inexcusable.
Next Game: ….
Let’s hope we rebound.
