The Boston Red Sox pulled off an unbelievable come back last night, fighting off a 5-1 deficit against the New York Yankees in the bottom of the ninth inning.
In the eighth inning, David Ortiz hit a solo home run to bring the fans back to life. It was the 537th home run of his career, passing Mickey Mantle for 17th on baseball’s all-time list.
Ortiz also hit an RBI single in the ninth to make it 5-3. There were still two on and two outs when Hanley Ramirez sent a 3-1 pitch over the center field wall to win the game in walk off fashion.
It was the sixth game-ending hit of Ramirez’s career and his first for Boston, earning him an ice-water drenching in front of the dugout as the crowd celebrated.
A memorable one for sure, and a blur shooting the end!
