Game 155: September 27, 2009
Red Sox2
L: Paul Byrd (1-3)
91-64, 3 game losing streak

Highlights: Victor Martinez’s hitting streak was snapped when he pinch hit for Jason Varitek in the ninth with one on and one out. The Red Sox catcher reached first anyway because Robinson Cano tried to make a showy play on the one-hop grounder but failed to glove the ball before twirling toward second base for the put out.

How the Yankees Ruined My Vacation, Part Three: Melky Cabrera’s third inning home run to right that sounded like an F9 off the bat.

Nick Swisher leaving early on his tag up with Robinson Cano’s fly ball to center (this wasn’t as annoying as it resulted in an appeal to second for a double play, but the fact that Swisher was brazen enough to try hoodwink the officials was irritating).

The two-run single off Hideki Matsui’s bat in the sixth for the lead. Mark Teixeira’s leadoff homer in the eighth that would have been a can of corn in any other park.

John Sterling’s raucous call. The Yankees winning the AL East for the 16th time; their first in their ostentatious new stadium, which should lead to much bombast.

Inevitable champions this, Yankees that. Teixeira MVP here, Sabathia Cy Young there. Blah blah blah.
