Boston collapses, Rays clinch AL Wild Card

Mere moments after Jonathan Papelbon allowed a walk off win to the Orioles, Evan Longoria hit a walk off solo shot to send the Rays back into the playoffs. Boston led 3-2 into the bottom of the 9th at Camden Yards until Papelbon let up a walk off single as the Orioles beat Boston, 4-3. Minutes later, Longoria sent a solo shot into the bleachers to cap off a huge come from behind victory for Tampa Bay. The Rays managed to tie a 7 run deficit against the Yankees in the 8th and 9th innings and eventually won in Tropicana in the bottom of the 12th.
