In beating the Red Sox 3-0 in 10 innings, the Rays became the fourth AL team to pitch a shutout while allowing one hit or fewer in extra innings, joining the 2011 Twins (vs. Angels), 1976 Rangers (at A's) and 1903 White Sox (vs. Cleveland). Among other historic notables, it was the first time:

. the Red Sox were shut out at home since June 2015, a span of 63 games in between;

. the Red Sox were shut out in an extra-inning game at home since April 15, 1991;

. the Red Sox were one-hit in extra innings at home, and second overall, also Sept. 18, 1934, at the St. Louis Browns;

. any team was held to one hit in an extra-inning game since May 7, 2013, when the Mets did it to the White Sox;

. the Rays won an extra-inning game since June 3, 2015, dropping 11 straight in the interim.
