Another tough one today for the Sox. It was hot out there, as it’s been throughout this entire week. I’m relieved that the home stand is over and I’ve got a chance to refresh from baseball for a little bit!

I feel like a broken record writing that this was the most amazing game I’ve ever been on hand to shoot. I know I’ve said that at least several times this season. The Red Sox have had so many incredible games in 2013, but somehow they seem to outdo themselves with every one of these improbable wins. 

This one was more special, more dramatic, and more meaningful than any of the other eleven Red Sox walk-off wins this season. After being held to just one hit by Detroit Tigers pitching in game one of the ALCS, the Red Sox frustrations continued, as 22-game winner Max Scherzer was absolutely dominant. Yet after managing to put up a run in the sixth inning and ensuring Scherzer’s eventual exit in the eighth, the boys pulled off one of the most incredible wins in playoff history. 

After a double by Will Middlebrooks, a walk by Jacoby Ellsbury, a base hit by Dustin Pedroia, and a series of bullpen pitching changes by Detroit, David Ortiz stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded. In classic Big Papi fashion, Ortiz knocked the first pitch he saw just out of the reach of Torii Hunter in right field for a grand slam to tie the game. 

The Fenway crowd went nuts, and after Ortiz crossed home plate and made it back into the dugout, I found myself turned around giving high fives to the fans sitting behind me in the first row. I’m usually able to separate my emotions while shooting, but in this case, it was impossible. 

Even though the game was still tied at that point, I knew that we would win it. Sure enough, in the bottom of the ninth inning, Jarrod Saltalamacchia knocked a single into left field to score Jonny Gomes and even the series at 1-1. 

These photos above are the highlights of my take from beginning to end. What a night. It still feels like a dream.
