As far as I’m concerned, the 2011 Red Sox season didn’t happen. That’s why I want to go back to a happier time. While 2003 was a horrible backdrop because of that ALCS heart breaker, 2004 was shaping to be even worse. Down three games to zero, the Red Sox faced elimination and had just one inning to go. Dave Roberts was one of the stars and he was just a pinch runner but he scored in the ninth to tie the game up. The David Ortiz hit one of the biggest home runs in Red Sox history in the twelth to push this series to a fifth game. Of course the Red Sox won three more, swept the Cardinals and the rest is history.
Now you can relive this fantastic game three. A&E has put out a “Baseball Greatest Games” DVD and this is rightfully one of them. See the Red Sox fall behind, take the lead, then fall behind again before the ninth inning and extra frames took place. Makes for a great look after this year’s disaster in September. It was just one game but man was it huge. I would have loved to have had baseball playoff tickets that year.
