Red Sox vs. Rays GIF recap: Boston wins 3-1

The celebration in Boston continues as the team waits to see who their opponent will be in the American League Championship Series.


Red Sox advance to ALCS with 3-1 victory over Rays

A wild pitch and two clutch singles allowed the Red Sox to eliminate the Rays from the playoffs.


ALDS Game 4 score update: Red Sox lead Rays, 2-1

The Rays took the lead in the sixth, but coughed it up by allowing two Boston runs in the top of the seventh.


Red Sox finally get caught stealing

The Tampa Bay Rays caught Daniel Nava taking second base in a failed hit-and-run in the eighth inning of Game 4 of the American League Division Series.


That is the first time a Red Sox player has been caught stealing since Aug. 8, when Jacoby Ellsbury was nabbed taking second by the Kansas City Royals. That was a streak of 44 successful stolen bases in a row.


Red Sox tie game on wild pitch

The Tampa Bay Rays took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. That wouldn't last long.

With two outs and runners on first and third in the top of the seventh, a wild pitch from Rays' reliever Jake McGee allowed Xander Bogaerts to come home and tie the game.


The Red Sox would get one more run after Shane Victorino singled in Jacoby Ellsbury, who moved from first to third on the wild pitch.


Boston now leads 2-1 in Game 4 of the American League Division Series.

James Loney double play bails out Rays

With the bases juiced and no outs in the top of the second inning of the ALDS, the Tampa Bay Rays pulled the quick hook on Jeremy Hellickson and brought Jamey Wright out of the bullpen.

Wright immediately struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia to secure the first out. Then James Loney did something spectacular on a Stephen Drew liner.


The line-out double play allowed the Rays to somehow get out of the inning without a run scoring, maintaining a scoreless tie.

James Loney and Jamey Wright combined to get the Rays out of a jam in the second.

Baldelli to throw out 1st pitch

Rocco Baldelli will be back on the field in Tampa Bay on Tuesday, five years after helping the Rays reach their first -- and only -- World Series.


Lobaton becomes first Ray to hit tank

The craziest thing about Jose Lobaton hitting a walkoff homer off of Koji Uehara was that Jose Lobaton hit a walkoff homer off of Koji Uehara, but the second-craziest is that he hit it into a fishtank really far away.


Lobaton keeps Rays alive

Jose Lobaton's first career postseason home run was of the walk-off variety.


Myers leaves with injury

Wil Myers' bat cramped up long before his legs did in Game 3, but his injury still places the Rays in a precarious position.


Berry was out, ruled safe

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz was replaced in the eighth inning after drawing a leadoff walk by Quintin Berry, who proceeded to take off for second base on the second pitch of the at-bat.

Berry appeared to be thrown out by Rays catcher Jose Molina, but second base umpire Mike Winters ruled him safe.


Yeah, he was definitely out.

That could prove to be the spark the Red Sox need to regain their lead. Hopefully it's up to Rays reliever Jake McGee, and not the umpires, to decide that.

Sox, Rays knotted after 7

The bullpens are doing good work for both teams in Game 3.


Longoria provides game-tying blast

Evan Longoria might have rescued the Rays from an early exit in the postseason.


Rays make costly mistakes

The Boston Red Sox extended their advantage to 3-0 over the Tampa Bay Rays in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the American League Division Series after a pair of miscues by the home team.

First, Shane Victorino hit a ball into the hole between shortstop and third base that Yunel Escobar got to but was unable to corral.


Jacoby Ellsbury, who doubled in the previous at-bat, hustled to third on the play. He appeared to be tagged on the thigh by Evan Longoria prior to reaching the base, but he was ruled safe on the play.

Then, with Dustin Pedroia at the plate, Alex Cobb fired a fastball past Jose Molina, allowing Ellsbury to score. After Pedroia grounded out, David Ortiz stepped up and singled to the opposite field, plating Victorino.


Much like the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier on Monday, the Rays haven't been able to do much offensively, so any added runs in Boston's column won't do them any favors.
