Heat Wave

Monday, June 7, 2021 – Fenway Park, Loge Box 137

Red Sox 5, Marlins 3

It was fun to be back to a mostly-full Fenway Park! Today’s makeup game was 47 degrees warmer than last Sunday’s rainout (46° then and 93° today) and I got to see my first win in person since September of 2019. While Fenway was now allowed to be full capacity, we knew it wouldn’t be completely full. So instead of baking in our original bleacher seats, we found some nice ones that were not only shaded but spaced out enough from other fans that there was no one else in our row. My favorite pictures from the day are below.

Impressive how many people were able to make it, given the rescheduled date and 5:10 start time. It’s great to see Fenway back to almost full capacity again.
Alex Verdugo went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
I love this fact about Christian Arroyo: “As a kid, his mother used to read him ‘The Science of Hitting’ by Ted Williams.” I guess he was listening, as he reached base three times from the leadoff spot, drove in two, and scored twice.
Garrett Whitlock got the final out of the fifth.
Jason Varitek was on the top step to greet each player as they returned to the dugout. I was hoping someone would hit a homer so I could see them ride the laundry cart, but I guess I’ll have to wait till next time.
Xander Bogaerts had two hits and scored a run.
Hirokazu Sawamura ended both the sixth and seventh innings with a K as a nearly full house cheered him on.
Fenway Park stands as one in the ninth.
It’s been way too long since I’ve seen a Fenway victory. It was good to be back!
