The Tampa Bay Rays had a combined no-hitter against the Red Sox through 9 innings. Too bad for the Rays’ pitchers that their batters couldn’t get on base either—they had two hits and did not plate a run. The first batter up in the 10th spoiled the no-hitter; Bobby Dalbec hit a triple. That hit also scored Jackie Bradley, the automatic runner, for a one-run lead (the automatic runner is expected to go away next year, good riddance). Dalbec, in turn, was driven in on a Christian Vazquez sacrifice fly, giving the Red Sox a 2-0 lead.
In the bottom of the 10th, the first two Rays struck out. Then automatic runner Wander Franco was balked over to third and then scored when a Trevor Story throwing error allowed Taylor Walls to reach safely, cutting the Sox lead to 2-1. Then Walls stole second with Kevin Kiermaier at the plate, which was rendered moot when Kiermaier parked the ball beyond the right field fence, giving the Rays a 3-2 win.
It’s only the third time ever that a team has given up a no-hitter in extra innings and then come back to win (first was in 1904). It was the first time where the comeback winners did so in walk off fashion.
