It's 1, 2, 3 Strikes Yer Out!

It's 1, 2, 3 Strikes Yer Out!

The Red Sox trailed the Devil Rays 6-0 after six innings, but mounted a comeback that just fell short, and they fell 6-5. In the bottom of the ninth, they scored their last run to get to within one run, but left the potential tying and winning runs on base. All three outs against Tampa bay closer Al Reyes came on strikeouts, and all three Boston players had interesting reactions.  Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, and Manny Ramirez (out number three to end the game) are shown.
