Last Chance for the Rays…the Bottom of the 9th
- Updated: October 18, 2008
In comes the Boston closer, Jonathan Papelbon with his patented stare.
First up is the scary rookie 3B Evan Longoria. This is the biggest at bat of the inning in my opinion. Longoria grounds out to SS Jed Lowrie. 1 out!
Boston is 2 outs away from forcing a 7th game once again!
CF Carl Crawford is up with 1 out and just swung at a ball for strike two. The Rays hitters have seemed to be trying too hard in this game at times! Papelbon strikes him out swinging.
DH Willie Aybar is up but this is a mismatch if you ask me! Count is 0-1 and the next pitch is a smoking line drive to 3B Kevin Youkilis!
Boston Wins 4-2 and force a game 7! Again in the ALCS for the second year in a row!
