Today in Sports History with Paul- April 22nd
Today, we look back on this day in 2007 when the Boston Red Sox took on their rival New York Yankees. The Red Sox got down early in the game, 3-0 by the third inning. Then in the bottom of the third inning the Red Sox took the plate and did something that has only happened 8 other times in Major League Baseball history. They hit 4 consecutive home runs! With a sequence of home runs from Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek the Red Sox took a 4-3 lead and ended up winning a close game 7-6. The 2007 Red Sox went on to win the World Series that year, making a remarkable comeback down 3 games to 1 in the American League Championship Series and going on to win their second championship in four years. Good times...good times. Enjoy the home runs and a look back at the 2007 Red Sox postseason run.
