If you missed Saturday’s crazy ending to the Boston Red Sox-Tampa Bay Rays game, we have you covered.

Boston won it’s second straight from Tampa Bay, 6-5, at Tropicana Field, but it by no means was an easy task. The Red Sox once held a five-run lead thanks to an Andrew Benintendi grand slam, but a bullpen implosion allowed the Rays to tie it all at 5-5 late in the game.

Manager Alex Cora elected to pinch-hit Michael Chavis in the ninth and it paid off big time. The infielder smacked a double to center to move Jackie Bradley Jr. to third before Benintendi plated the game-winning run with a sacrifice fly.

But Tampa Bay made it interesting in the ninth with two runners on and two outs and Willy Adames at the plate. The Rays were in a good position to tie or walk-off with a win, but catcher Christian Vazquez noticed Tommy Pham getting just a bit too comfortable with his lead at first base.
