Red Sox second baseman Trevor Story’s throwing error allowed Tampa’s ghost runner to score making it 2-1. Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier then came to the plate and immediately hit a 2-run walk-off homer to win 3-2 over Boston in the bottom of the 10th. Only 5 hits total in the game all coming in the 10th inning.
