After a brutal baserunning blunder earlier in Tuesday night's game, J.D. Martinez redeemed himself with a 12th-inning walk-off for the Boston Red Sox vs. the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Red Sox bats mostly were silenced until the ninth inning, when Christian Vazquez crushed a game-tying homer over the Green Monster. After Willy Adames put the Rays back ahead in the 11th with an RBI double, Rafael Devers responded with a game-tying knock of his own.
The Rays retook the lead in the 12th, but Martinez delivered the knockout blow in the bottom half of the inning to propel Boston to victory.
On the pitching side, Rays ace Tyler Glasnow struck out nine Red Sox hitters while allowing only one run in six innings of work. Martin Perez turned in a decent outing for Boston with five hits and three runs allowed in five innings.
Here's a recap of the Red Sox' win:
