Rays Stun Red Sox 5-4 with Walk-Off, Lead ALDS 1-0

Automated Insights

Jose Lobaton won it in the ninth with a walk-off home run as Tampa Bay stopped Boston, 5-4.

With the score tied 3-3 in the bottom of the eighth and the Rays up to bat, Sam Fuld was brought home on a ground out.

Alex Cobb worked five innings and doesn't factor in the decision after he gave up two runs on five hits with five strikeouts and two walks. After one inning of work, Fernando Rodney got his first win in relief in these playoffs surrendering one run on one hit while fanning one and walking one. Koji Uehara (0-1) was charged with the loss after allowing one run on one hit over 2/3 of an inning with no strikeouts and no walks. Lobaton was terrific at the plate for the Rays, going 1 for 1 with a home run, a run, and an RBI. James Loney also had a big game, going 3 for 3 with a double and a walk. Jacoby Ellsbury was 3 for 5 with a double, two runs, and a stolen base in the loss.

The Rays start the ALDS up 1-0. Tuesday, the Rays will face the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS at Tropicana Field at 8:37 PM EDT.
