Last night was a genuinely fun time at the baseball park both on the field and in the stands. Â I attended with friends I haven’t been with in a while; we got to see a really exciting game; the weather was beautiful for the entire game…it was the perfect storm of baseball games.
People keep joking that they wish the Red Sox could play the Angels every day. Â I get it. Â The Sox are pretty dominant over Anaheim (I know…but they are Anaheim to me. Â It just makes things easier.)…but I feel like that takes a lot away from what the team has done these past three games.
Sunday they bested reigning Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez. Â Monday they took on Jered Weaver and came out with the “w” and last night they went up against a phenomenal Dan Haren and piled on the runs and delivered him a loss. Â Three talented and, before hitting Boston, extremely hot pitchers who the Red Sox triumphed over. Â This is a little more than just having luck against one team.
Something I don’t often say: Â I enjoyed the heck out of watching Jon Lester pitch last night. Â Holy cow.
Also enjoyable: Â Carl Crawford with his third consecutive multiple-hit game. Â Adrian Gonzalez with his first home run of the season at Fenway. Â David Ortiz with a home run curling around Pesky’s pole. Â (Back to back home runs against different pitchers so quickly left me stunned into silence. Â Happy silence, sure, but stunned nonetheless.) Â I just enjoyed the heck out of being there.
