October 17, 2004. Down 3-0 in the American League Championship Series, facing a sweep by the New York Yankees. Destroyed 19-8 in game 3, and down 4-3 going into the 9th. Kevin Millar walks. Dave Roberts comes into pinch run. Bill Mueller at the plate; first pitch, Roberts steals second. Mueller singles, Roberts scores, game tied. As shown above, David Ortiz smashes a 2-run homer in the 12th- Sox win and stop the bleeding.
They have done it before. They MUST do it again on Thursday. No matter how banged up, bruised, or bewilldered you are Boston, swing those frigging bats!
