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

3

August

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.
