Former Bull and Tampa Bay Ray Fernando Perez scored the winning run against the Red Sox in a burnin-the-midnight-oil Game 2 of the AL championships. The New York Times has a lively story recapping the five-plus hour game.
Perez, who was pinch running, scored in the bottom of the 11th on a sac fly by another former Bull, BJ Upton. Perez is so fast on the bases, it prompted Rays' manager Joe Maddon to say:
"...in a straight-up race, I've got him over Seabiscuit."
