Game 5: David Ortiz
David Ortiz must really want to be MVP of the ALCS. Once again, he saved the day and got a base hit in the bottom of the 14th inning which scored Johnny Damon.
A few notes about the game:
- The game lasted 5 hours and 49 minutes. (Longest ALCS Game in history)
- The Red Sox and Yankees had played back-to-back marathon games that totaled almost 11 hours — 5 hours, 2 minutes on Sunday and 5 hours, 49 minutes Monday
- Waisting no time, as soon as the game got over, the Red Sox got on a bus and headed to New York.
- Half the Red Sox ran to greet Damon coming home; the others mobbed Ortiz halfway to second base.
The six game of the series is on at 8:19 tonight. If past games are any clue, that means most New Englanders won't goto sleep until 1 am. Dunkin Donuts should have another busy morning tomorrow!
