The Boston Red Sox squared off against the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night in game 4 of the ALDS and Eduardo Rodriguez was throwing a Perfect Game into the fourth inning. The Rays sure did not make it easy though as E-Rod had to throw 17 pitches to get Austin Meadows to go down on strikes. This is the longest at bat in MLB Postseason history. Check out the 17th pitch below.
The longest at bat before that was in the 2004 ALCS between the Red Sox and the Yankees, when Johnny Damon threw 16 pitches against Jon Leiber.
The Red Sox lead this series 2-1 and are currently up 5-3 in the bottom of the 7th in game 4.
