A Great Night for Bay and Youkilis



Jason Bay will forever be known in Boston as the guy who replaced Manny Ramirez. He did have some great moments though in his short stay in Boston.

One of those moments came nine years ago tonight as he hit a two out, two run, game tying homer off Mariano Rivera and the Yankees.

Kevin Youkilis would end in the 11th inning with a walk off homer off of Damaso Marte

Here is the complete boxscore  with the videos of both homeruns below

1978 Replay Season: Bonds Goes Off, But Red Sox Win




Boston and Chicago took Mother Nature's best shot and still managed to complete their ballgame. Despite a fine performance by right fielder Bobby Bonds, the Chicago White Sox suffered a 6-5 loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Bonds was 2 for 4 with 2 home runs. He drove in 5 runs and scored twice. At 2-0, the Red Sox have played well so far.

Fred Lynn's hit in the top of the ninth was a game-changer. With no one out, he rapped a slider from Jim Willoughby for a run-scoring single. It put Boston in front, 6-5.

 "I'm just looking for a good pitch that I can hit well," said Lynn. "And not try to do too much."
