The Red Sox and Rays are battling in the AL East and battling this week at Fenway Park, and today’s installment has been a particularly wild one. The Red Sox kicked things off with a 6-0 lead in the first inning, but the Rays drip-drip came back. There have been 20 runs and 32 hits (and counting), and they’ve now gone to extra innings because Austin Meadows hit a game-tying inside-the-park homer in the 9th inning!
I really love inside-the-park homers:

The Rays’ dugout reaction really sums things up. I can always watch a good inside-the-parker, and when it ties the game in the 9th, all the better.
