Red Sox Dave Roberts "The Steal" Print
The Red Sox were facing elimination in the bottom of the ninth inning, down 4 runs to 3 in Game 4 of the 2004 American League Championship Series. Kevin Millar drew a walk from Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. Roberts, who had not played in ten days, came in to pinch run with Bill Mueller now at the plate. Rivera checked Roberts three times (the last of which almost picked the runner off) before throwing a pitch to Mueller. On the next pitch, Roberts stole second base, just beating the throw from Yankee catcher Jorge Posada. Mueller followed with a single, Roberts scored, and the Sox went on to win in twelve innings and began their run of eight straight wins, culminating in Boston's first World Series title since 1918. In 2006, the event was recognized as a Memorable Moment in Red Sox history by the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame.
