Anyone still up? 16 innings later...

30 ZEROs went up on the scoreboard before a run scored. Both starting pitchers, Beckett for the Red Sox and Niemann for the Rays pitched 8 brilliant innings. Josh Beckett gave up a single in the 2nd inning and the proceeded to sit down the next 20-something batters. The bullpen was equally as impressive giving up only 2 hits and 1 walk in the next 8 innings.

In the top of the 16th inning, Dustin Pedroia rang up his 3rd hit of the game (in a game with only 8 hits total) and knocked in Josh Reddick for the 1st and only run of the game.

Aceves pitched 3 scoreless and got the win. Iron Man Award goes to Jason Varitek for catching all 16 innings. 

Red Sox 1 Rays 0 BOX SCORE
