This is insanely exciting. Tampa Bay was down 7-0 to the New York Yankees and on the verge of losing out on the AL wild card spot. In the 8th inning they cut it to 7-6 and down to their last strike Dan Johnson hits a tying home-run off the foul pole and currently they’re in extra-innings. They’re competing with the Boston Red Sox for the final playoff spot and they’re tied with the Baltimore Orioles 3-3 after being up 3-2 prior to a rain delay (which coincided with Tampa’s extraordinary rally).
It’s entirely possible for the Rays to go from out of the playoffs entirely, to at least a one-game playoffs with Boston, to maybe an outright spot in October all in about 1.5 hours.
The final day of the regular season with everything on the line…..it’s one of the great things about sports.
