Rays 5, Red Sox 4
Carl Crawford slides across home plate with the winning run. (Chris O'Meara/AP)
The Rays had an early lead thanks to Carl Crawford's game-opening triple and B.J. Upton's sac fly, but Matt Garza struggled in the early innings and let the Red Sox take the lead. But Crawford knocked in a run and scored one in the fourth, then Nathan Haynes knocked in -- who else? -- Crawford with the decisive run in the 11th.
