Let the celebration begin.

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria raises his arms in excitement after hitting a walk-off home run against the New York Yankees on  Wednesday, Sept. 28. The Rays came all the way back from a 7-0 deficit to defeat New York 8-7 in 12 innings.

Even more astonishing is the fact that the Rays trailed the Boston Red Sox by nine games in the AL wild card in the beginning of September. Now they will be facing off against the Texas Rangers in game one of the ALDS tonight while Boston watches from home.
