    Tuesday was eventful for Major League Baseball, to say the least.
    But for how weird a game the Boston Red Sox's extra-innings win over the Tampa Bay Rays was, surprisingly, none of the drama came from the leagues newly enforced rules against pitchers using banned foreign substances.
    “Smooth,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said following the victory, which lifted Boston 1 1/2 games ahead of Tampa in American League East standings.
    “You know, everybody, they understand what's going on. And the guys that came in late in the game, they actually waited or went straight to the...

    Red Sox catcher Connor Wong probably didn't expect he would get on the field Tuesday night when Boston faced the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
    But he did, and now its a big-league debut the 25-year-old won't forget.
    Wong, who was called up Tuesday, was the pinch runner in the 11th inning of a tie game. He started off the game at second base and ultimately proved to be the game-winning run as Boston scored four times in the 11th to claim a 9-5 win in extra innings .
    It earned some recognition from Red Sox manager Alex Cora.
    “Wong did a good job with his secondary lead...

    To say Tuesday's Red Sox game was a doozy would be an understatement.
    Boston ultimately won in 11 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays, but it was no easy task and a lot went on over the course of four-plus hours.
    The Red Sox blew a 5-2 lead only to open things back up in the 11th with a four-run frame that featured Connor Wong, who was making his Major League Baseball debut after being added to Boston's roster Tuesday, scoring what proved to be the game-winning run.
    The Sox had their chance to win in the 10th when Bobby Dalbec moved to third on a Danny Santana single. He...

    It was not easy, but the Red Sox handed the Rays their seventh loss in a row.
    Boston defeated the Rays 9-5 in 11 innings Tuesday night at Tropicana Field in a game that featured a little bit of everything between errors on both sides of the ball, questionable calls, Major League Baseball debuts and, naturally, the catwalk getting involved.
    Eduardo Rodriguez's struggles continued as he gave up five runs on seven hits in yet another no-decision. He has not won a game since May 7. The southpaw did strike out seven, but just could not seem to get out of his own way.
