It’s seems like the Tampa Bay Rays have replaced the Yankees as the Red Sox’ biggest rivals. Last night was a sure sign that things between the two teams atop the AL East are starting to heat up.
After an incredibly beautiful few innings of sunsets and cloud formations followed by a torrential downpour and subsequent rain delay, the Sox put a rally together to try and tie the game up at 2-2. It seems as though that would have happened in the eighth inning but for a self-admitted blown call by home plate umpire Jerry Meals on a play at the plate.
From my post at third base, it looked like Daniel Nava, who tried to score on a sacrifice fly, was safe. Who knows. Regardless, it was an eventful night for photos despite a low score.
Let’s hope the Sox stay competitive down the stretch. I’m looking forward to shooting this playoff race.
