Can You Believe It? Red Sox Win - Red Sox Win -- Thaaaaaa Red Sox WINNNNNN!!!

Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew connected on a two-run home run in the eighth inning. The shot put the Red Sox in striking distance of the Rays, who led 7-6 after the home run.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz stroked a three run home run in the seventh inning. The shot made the score 7-4 Rays.

Red Sox players celebrated after J.D. Drew's walkoff hit in the bottom of the ninth inning kept their season alive.

The Boston Red Sox celebrated their come-from-behind victory on the field. The Red Sox were down 7-0 with two outs in the seventh inning and came back to beat the Rays 8-7 in dramatic fashion.

Being down 7-0 with 9 outs in Game 5 of the ALCS at Fenway Park tonight - facing elimination? Not a big problem for the World Champion Boston Red Sox! The Sox overcame that deficit and recorked the Tampa Bay Campaign party with a 8-7 win.

MVP Pedroia, JD Drew, Co Co Crisp and Big Pappi combined to convert tragedy into an exhilarating win for the Home Town team. This is madness - just an outrage. How can this happen so many times. the Sox were down in the ALCS in '86, '04 and '07 and constructed comebacks of the century! Can this happen again? YES!

So - The Sox and rays pack up and return to The Trop. Josh Beckett and Jon Lester have an opportunity to atone for their horrific starts this week at Fenway. Game 6 will be played on Saturday.

It Is Not OVAH!

The Yawkey League as well as Comcast was well represented at this great game. Arlen Showstack, Cousin Stu Sklaver & Eric Shulman were all in attendance. Although Eric left when it was 7-0.
