Wow. This was Boston's first win in a game in which they trailed by at least two runs in extra innings since July 20, 1988.

Facing Casey Janssen in the bottom of the 10th:
Mookie Betts singled to center.
Xander Bogaerts singled to left.
Christian Vazquez singled on a bunt to second, loading the bases.
Will Middlebrooks singled to left, scoring Betts, loading the bases.
Jemile Weeks pinch-ran for Vazquez.
Dustin Pedroia hit a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Bogaerts.
David Ortiz was safe at first on an infield error, loading the bases.
Yoenis Cespedes singled to deep center, scoring Weeks.
Cespedes went 4-for-6 and drove in two runs; he also stole third. Bogaerts had three hits and two RBI. Betts scored three runs.

And Cespedes's walk-off single was a ground-rule double where he nominally stopped at first (on account of winning the game).

That was fun, particularly after the grim game the day before...
