Don't tase Boston's divisional title chances, bro! If this isn't a sign from the baseball gods that the race is over in the East, I don't know what is. This Red Sox fan tried to leap the dugout and run onto the field at the Trop on Wednesday, but was met with Epic Failure: security grabbed him, and as you can see, hogtying and threatened tasering ensued. Although as I understand it, the electronic device was never actually used. The Rays went on to beat the Red Sox, 10-3, moving two games ahead of Boston with 12 to play. In the process, a couple of myths were exploded. First, rookie Fernando Perez, Willy Aybar and Gabe Gross homered off Tim Wakefield to prove that the knuckleball is not an unhittable pitch when thrown for strikes. Secondly, there was a sellout crowd of 36,048. And as my pal Jordi Scrubbings points out, most, evidently, were Rays fans. Scrubbings has taken me to task for claiming that Rays fans are uninspired and rarely present, so he took the time to document his claims to the contrary. Included in his thesis is this example of the Rays Mohawk:

OK, I stand corrected ... for now. We'll see what happens in the playoffs. In claiming win No. 90, the Rays won the season series with the Sox 10-8, and moved within two wins of claiming a wild-card berth. Tampa begins a four-game series with Minnesota tonight. UPDATE: Here's some video of the incident, plus some footage of a second fight in the stands. Red Sox Fan Arrested After Trying To Run Onto Field [Tampa.com]
