At Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Bombers trailed the Boston Red Sox 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh. But two walks and a single loaded the bases for Brett Gardner who hit a grand slam to right center--the 100th homer of his career--and carried New York to the 5-3 win over the Bosox. The slam was just one of the things that went right for dangerzone (47) who called every Confidence Game correctly and earned a Perfect 45. Fifth in Total GridCard Points, dangerzone collected his third Hamlin-Hopper of the year, just edging out ranvilld12 (45) and Ricco1947 (44).
At the Boston Gardens, the Indiana Pacers led the Celtics by two with under a minute left when Jayson Tatum hit a go-ahead 3-pointer. Helped by two turnovers in the last 12 seconds, Boston not only took a 2-0 series lead, they incredibly covered the seven points to win ATS and lift MMc (43) to the ProGrid Tour win, his eighth in a row, beating the old record of six consecutive PGT wins. He also picked up his fourth King Kong (87).
