The Rays were the best team in the majors at home this season, and haven't lost consecutive games at Tropicana Field since Sept. 2-3 against the Yankees. That was one of the reasons they were confident they would bounce back in Game 2.
Upton's run-scoring single in the second gave him 16 RBIs this postseason, three shy of the major league record held by Boston's David Ortiz (2004), Cleveland's Sandy Alomar (1997) and Anaheim's Scott Spiezio (2002).
His seven homers are tied with Troy Glaus for the most by an AL player, one short of the major league mark held by Barry Bonds (2002) and Carlos Beltran (2004).
