Plucky Pierre, after Sox lost in 11th, won in 10th, same night:
A split is not what we wanted, but we battled back, [left-fielder Juan] Pierre said. You dont have time for doubts after Kansas City tied it. Youve just got to play. Thats the kind of mentality we have.
The two teams played 21 innings, lasting 6 hours, 31 minutes, plus a five-minute delay in the second game when a bank of lights went out.
Some guy named Betancourt was bad news for Sox. Pierre, Betancourt — I didn’t know they played baseball in France.
