Several Close Calls Keep Voting Undecided Up to Last Minute in Third Round of Boston's Greatest Sports Moment Tournament Fans kept the voting close right up to the final buzzer in the third round of the Boston's Greatest Sports Moment tournament.

Carlton Fisk's game-winning home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series edged Cam Neely scoring 50 goals in 44 games by less than a quarter of a percentage point.
