The Cleveland Indians exploded for 7 runs in the 11th inning to hand the Boston Red Sox their first loss of the postseason, 13-6, and even the ALCS at 1 game apiece. The game lasted 5 hours, 14 minutes long and went through 14 pitchers before a sellout crowd in Boston watched their home team lose at around 1:30am.
In the loss, Manny Ramirez set a record with his 23rd postseason home run of his career, hitting his third this postseason.
Once again, Eric Gagne was unable to have a perfect appearance, giving up the first two runs of the Indians’ huge 11th inning for the loss while recording just one out. His poor regular season with the Red Sox has poured over, as he’s given up a hit in all three of his postseason appearances.
Meanwhile in the NLCS, the Colorado Rockies have a 2-0 series lead on the Arizona Diamondbacks and head home with the momentum and having won 19 of their last 20 games. Game 3 is Sunday and Game 4 is Monday along with Game 3 of the ALCS in Cleveland.
