Then baseball's comeback kings did it again.
Trailing by seven runs with seven outs left in their season, the Red Sox pulled off the biggest postseason rally since 1929. Boston staved off elimination in the AL championship series with an 8-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night when J.D. Drew singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth.
"The first six innings we did nothing. They had their way with us every way possible," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said after a draining 4-hour, 8-minute thriller. "And then this place came unglued, and we've seen that before. But because of the situation we're in, it just -- that was pretty magical."...........
