Rays Beat Red Sox 3-2 On Dan Johnson’s HR In 10th

View Comments

[photogallerylink id=41051 align=right]Dan Johnson stunned the Boston Red Sox again, hitting a leadoff homer in the 10th inning that gave the Tampa Bay Rays a 3-2 victory Saturday night.

Johnson sent a 2-2 pitch from Scott Atchison (2-2) into the right-field stands for his second clutch home run against the Red Sox in three years. Johnson is best known for a game-tying shot off closer Jonathan Papelbon on Sept. 9, 2008, that keyed an important comeback win en route to Tampa Bay’s only AL pennant.

Randy Choate (4-3) retired David Ortiz with a runner on first and two outs in the 10th.

Victor Martinez homered for Boston, which fell 5 1/2 games behind the Rays and New York Yankees in both the AL East and wild-card races.
