Although the Rays-Red Sox rivalry really didn't start to heat up until the 2008 season, many believe the bad blood began as long ago as the Devil Rays' awful early years.
Back in 2000, then Boston ace Pedro Martinez started what would be a masterful outing with a beanball at outfielder Gerald Williams. Williams charged the mound, and the benches cleared.
After the delay, Pedro retired 24 straight and struck out 13 batters, taking a no-hitter into the ninth inning, which was ended by a John Flaherty leadoff single.
It was one bad day at the Trop that Tuesday night, as eight players and coaches were ejected in the 8-0 loss—many resulting from the four hit Boston batters in retaliation for the first-inning incident.
