Red Sox, Rays Pitching Staffs Learn How to ‘Balk This Way’ Thanks to Trigger-Happy Umps (Video)

What a weird game for the Red Sox. The team snaps two streaks — one winning, another of quality starts — and somehow manage to commit three balks to help the Rays escape with a 2-1 victory.

The Rays scored on one of those aforementioned balks, a goofy sacrifice fly and somehow held on. The craziest part, though? The umps probably got all three calls right.

NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is impressed enough with the calls that he’s awarding the umpires our “Balk This Way” award after this one. Who’s your player of the game? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoghts on the game in the comments.
