Historic Relic

Just like Fenway Park another historic relic was revivified in Boston.

Andruw Jones was 2-for-5, both hits being home runs. He also made an unbelievable catch of Adrian Gonzalez’s fly ball to left which had him colliding with the wall. Jones recovered quickly enough to throw back to the infield and in time to double off David Ortiz. The replay showed that Mark Teixeira was off the bag when Ortiz made it back, but first base umpire Lance Barrett still called Ortiz out. That effectively killed an incipient rally in the sixth inning.

After an effective string of starts against sub-par teams Franklin Morales’s mettle was finally tested against significant competition and came up short. The southpaw lasted 3⅓ innings with a line of 6 hits, 6 earned runs, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts.
