Down by two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Houston Astros, down two games to one, the Boston Red Sox needed a boost. They got it in the form of a rare inside the park home run, courtesy of Rafael Devers.

This made it a one-run game with no outs. Suddenly, Boston had a pulse again. However, Ken Giles rebounded quickly to mow down the final three batters of the game and push the Astros to the American League Championship Series.
