Broken Fenway

The Red Sox seemed to have this game all tied up in a bow. Quite fitting as it was Bow Tie Night to benefit the Red Sox Foundation.

To say Koji Uehara had an off night would be an understatement. The Mariners mounted a five-run comeback in the ninth inning. All of the runs came with two outs.

Brock Holt almost put an end to the onslaught by snaring Dustin Ackley’s bloop single. It was an impossibly well-placed ball in shallow left field. Chris Denorfia and Austin Jackson scored to put Seattle ahead 4-3.

Cespedes’s stunning three-run homer was erased. Xander Bogaerts getting hit by a pitch to the earflap was for naught. Mookie Betts’s fourth inning heroics on Robinson Cano’s fly ball were forgotten.

In successful seasons Fenway was the place where the local nine would manufacture wins. This long homestand has been a slog rather than a success. These fans broke Fenway, and the team that plays in it is in similar disrepair.
