Rays Win Game 3!

Rays Win Game 3!

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (970 WFLA) - Happy Birthday Evan and Alex.

The two birthday boys--Evan Longoria and pitcher Alex Cobb--got a big present Monday night when catcher Jose Lobaton hit a walk off home run to win Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the Boston Red Sox.

Game 4 will also be at Tropicana Field Tuesday night.  The first pitch by starter Jeremy Hellickson is set for 8:37 p.m.

Fans say they never doubted the Rays would pull out another win.  The Rays have become well known for performing their best under do-or-die pressure, as was the case against Toronto, Texas and Cleveland last week.

Rays Faithful say they want to bring the series back to Boston for a Game 5 with David Price on the mound a second time in this best-of-five contest.  Right now, the Sox lead the Rays, 2-1.
