The Rays, up 7-0, nine outs away from advancing to the World Series, gave up eight runs over the next three innings to lose 8-7 to bring the series back to Tampa for Game 6.
This is the kind of win that can catapult Boston to the World Series and the kind of loss that can cripple the Rays.
Scott Kazmir was cruising through six innings. When he came out of the game, everything went to hell. What a shame.
Game 6 is tomorrow night at 8:07 p.m.
