Shortly before a pair of explosions near the finish line turned the 117th Boston Marathon into a chaotic crime scene, the Boston Red Sox wrapped up a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay at their annual Patriots’ Day Game at nearby Fenway Park.

The explosions were audible for fans exiting the park and left Red Sox and their fellow Boston athletes in shock and praying for those impacted by the devastating events.
