Because Game 2 was called due to darkness, this series eventually went to an 8th game to decide a winner. It was also the first ever Game 7 to reach extra innings. The Giants scored in the top of the 10th to lead 2-1 and had a chance to end the game in the bottom of the 10th on a pop-foul between home plate and first base, but nobody was able to make the out, giving Boston another chance. With 2 outs and 2 men on, Tris Speaker singled in the tying and go-ahead runs to give the Red Sox the title.
