Game 156: September 28, 2009 ∙ 7 innings
WinBlue Jays
W: Scott Richmond (8-10)
73-84, 4 game winning streak
Red Sox5
L: Michael Bowden (0-1)
91-65, 4 game losing streak
Highlights: The Red Sox honored Johnny Pesky on his 90th birthday by having him throw out the first pitch. Instead of the typical off-target toss to home practiced by many a blood donor of the game, Pesky rolled the ball to Jason Varitek. If he said to the catcher, “Practice not letting the ball get by you” after that maneuver I would kiss him full on the lips.

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark that watches games even when the opposing team scores four runs in the first inning and builds a six-run lead by the time the game is postponed due to weather.

It is a star like Kevin Youkilis homering twice to give the fans something to cheer about. David Ortiz’s worth at the beginning of the season was unknown, but when he went yard in the sixth he notched his 28th home run of the season, five more than last season.

Love’s not Time’s fool, but Baseball is Weather’s clod. Within the rain’s chill breadth did the game come, ending it in the seventh.

The Red Sox will alter not with this brief stretch of games but will play with equanimity, bearing out the season even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no fan ever loved.
