Seems Like Old Times

Seems like old times, dinner dates and flowers
Just like old times, staying up for hours
Making dreams come true, doing things we used to do
Seems like old times being here with you
When Annie Hall crooned these lines she and Alvy Singer were nearing the end of their first relationship. Annie was lured away to Los Angeles by music producer Tony Lacey, something that might soon happen with Adrian Beltre and Victor Martinez.

Tim Bogar made it seem like the Dale Sveum days by waving home Beltre in the second inning on David Ortiz’s line drive single to left. Sophomore left fielder Michael Saunders hosed Beltre for his eighth assist of the season.

Masking Bogar’s gaffe was erased by Jed Lowrie’s two-run bomb over the scoreboard in left, putting ahead the Red Sox 2-1. The shortstop also rained a solo shot off the home bullpen’s roof in the fourth inning, a four-bagger that marked Lowrie’s first multi-homer game. To add to his switch-hitting and middle infield versatility, Lowrie manned first base from the eighth inning on.

Ortiz called to mind the good old days with his go-ahead homer in the eighth. His post-blast stance, the soaring projectile, the proud swagger around the basepaths: these are things that should be seen in the postseason.

Perhaps next year.
