Top 10 Moments Of The New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox Rivalry

3. The Steal

Dave Roberts probably had the most intense and clutch stolen bases in Red Sox, maybe even baseball, history.

In game four of the 2004 ALCS facing elimination, Kevin Millar made his way on base with a walk following Roberts being called on to pinch run.

After numerous pick-off attempts by Mariano Rivera, Roberts took off for second and just beat the throw by Posada.

Following the intense stolen base, scored the tying run after Bill Mueller singled up the middle. That forced extra innings where David Ortiz would hit a walk-off home run.

Roberts’ steal arguably sparked the historical series comeback by the Red Sox who were down 3-0 in the series but was undoubtedly one of the most memorable moments in Red Sox history.
