What if the Rays had only tied the game in the tenth inning?



They were out of position players after numerous substitutions and Jason Bartlett’s right index finger injury. Shawn Riggans, who finished Bartlett's at-bat and took a cannon ball to the chest from Fernando Rodney, couldn't play a position besides catcher and manager Joe Maddon wasn’t going to humor pitcher Edwin Jackson’s requests to play RF.

The answer: DH Jonny Gomes would have gone to RF, eliminating the DH and forcing the pitcher to bat in the ninth spot.
