The Patriots & Red Sox Save Boston…In Pictures.

As it turns out, yesterday proved to be one of the great days in recent Boston sports history.

First, Tom Brady led the Patriots on a late-game drive to beat the Saints 30-27 with seconds left.

Kenbrell Thompkins made a nifty grab off of a majestic throw by Brady for the victory.

Hours later, David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox erased a 5-0 lead in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series to win 6-5 over the Detroit Tigers to the delight of the Fenway Park faithful.

Boston’s comeback was fortified by a grand slam off the bat of Ortiz (and just over the outstretched glove of Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter), who is one of baseball’s premier clutch hitters.

Ortiz’s blast led to two of the great sports photos in recent memory.

The first (featured above) shows Hunter falling into the Boston bullpen after trying to make a stab at Ortiz’s homer.

The second pic shows just how close Hunter came to robbing Ortiz:

It’s a game of inches, y’all.

Yesterday, was a good day to be a New England native.
