Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton delivered a walk-off two-run double in the bottom of the ninth inning to help pull out a win against the Red Sox on Sunday.
Hanser Alberto reached base to lead off the inning due to a Pablo Sandoval fielding error. After a sacrifice bunt and a ground out, Alberto was on third base, but Red Sox manager John Farrell opted to have closer Koji Uehara intentionally walk the hot-hitting Prince Fielder to bring up Hamilton. Hamilton made the Red Sox pay for the decision as he ripped a 1-1 off-speed pitch to left-center. Alberto scored easily to tie the game, and Fielder motored around the bases to score the winning run with a head-first slide.
