In one game, the team managed to score two throwing errors, which led to Tampa Bay leading the silver plate.
Taylor Walls hit a sharp line that jumped over Boston pitcher Matt Strahm, who rushed to recover and threw a throw that jumped for the first time, allowing him to go home. The first baseman player Franchy Cordero ran the ball before escorting it to the home plate, but the ball came from striker Christian Vazquez.
A second throwback allowed Mejía to rush them, lifting Tampa Bay 3-2 ahead of the final. The Rays advanced to Boston in the AL East with wild card competition and victory, adding insult to the Red Sox on what had already been a terrible loss.
