Date: July 17
After 480 pitches, 16 innings and five hours and 44 minutes, the Red Sox defeated the Rays on Dustin Pedroia's two-out RBI single (pictured) to snap a scoreless tie at Tropicana Field. It was just the eighth hit of the game for both squads. Pitchers Josh Beckett and Jeff Niemann matched each other with eight shutout innings, and neither bullpen gave in until Adam Russell blew it for the Rays in the 16th.
