In another thriller‚ the Red Sox even their ALCS with the Yankees by defeating NY by a score of 4-2. Mark Bellhorn hits a three run homerun, originally called a double. Curt Schilling, pitching, the now famous "Bloody sock Game" on a dislocated ankle tendon held down by three sutures put in the day before. He gives up one run over seven innings. In one of the most bizare scenes in playoff baseball history, Alex Rodriguez slaps the ball out of Bronson Arroyo's glove after he squibbed a ball down the first base line. He was originally called safe, then the umpires reversed the call correctly.

Boston becomes the first team in baseball history to force a seventh game after being down 3 games to none.
