Jose Lobaton's solo home run off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Tampa Bay Rays to a 5-4 win over Boston at Tropicana Field. The win kept the Rays' hopes alive in the American League Division Series which the Red Sox lead two games to one.
Evan Longoria tied the game in the bottom of the fifth inning with his ninth career postseason home run off Buchholz who, despite throwing a shutout through the first four innings, rarely seemed to get into a groove.
Tampa took the lead in the bottom of the eighth when Delmon Young drove Sam Fuld in with a ground out and the Red Sox rallied in the ninth to tie the game at four on another Pedroia infield out.
Lobaton's home run came with two out in the ninth inning.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball (PBI) and radio (WDHA).
