2008 Rays-Red Sox
The Rays jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the series, but nearly let it slip away by blowing a seven-run lead in Game 5 and losing 4-2 in Game 6. Tampa Bay built a 3-1 lead in Game 7, but in the eighth inning Boston loaded up the bases with an error, a hit and a walk. With J.D. Drew coming up to the plate, the Rays called on rookie David Price. Price proceeded to strike out Drew and pitch a scoreless ninth, earning the save and sending Tampa Bay to its first World Series.
