LCS Game 4
Oct. 17, 2004 -- Red Sox 6, Yankees 4 (12): Before the game reporters asked Theo Epstein questions about the team's plans, under the assumption Boston would lose the series and undergo radical changes. Epstein answered as best he could before giving up and saying, "Hey, this series isn't over." Yeah, right. No ballclub had ever rallied from a 3-0 postseason deficit.
And then Kevin Millar drew a walk against Mariano Rivera to lead off the ninth. And then pinch runner Dave Roberts stole second. And then Bill Mueller singled to tie it. And then it was the 12th inning and Big Papi's homer was soaring into the seats and a fan was shouting, "I'm going to dance in the streets and hug strangers!" And the series wasn't over.
