Sure, the Red Sox have left you with nothing to watch on TV this late in the season for the first time since 2002, but you'll always have 2004. In that spirit, we're recapping last year's historic ALCS between the Red Sox and Yankees. Today, Game 5 ...
The Red Sox sent the series back to New York with their second straight extra-inning victory, and David Ortiz's second walkoff hit in less than 24 hours. This time, he singled in the bottom of the 14th to drive home the winning run almost six hours after the first pitch of the game was delivered.
Some memorable quotes from after the game:
