Start Spreading the Brooms

Sunday, June 27, 2021 – Fenway Park, Section 43

Red Sox 9, Yankees 2

The Red Sox had already swept the Yankees in New York earlier this month, and they had dramatic wins in the first two games of this series. It was a little strange to have the first Fenway meeting of these two teams be in late June, and it was also unusual to play a Sunday game against them in the afternoon. But it felt right to have a packed house for the first time all year, with Friday and Saturday being the first two sellouts of the year.

After Eduardo Rodriguez got quickly through a 1-2-3 first, Kiké Hernandez homered on the first pitch of the home half, and the Red Sox kept it rolling from there. Raffy Devers blasted a three-run homer later in the first, J.D. Martinez launched one in the third, and Christian Vazquez padded the lead with his own round-tripper in the eighth. Hunter Renfroe made a diving catch with a somersault to end the sixth, right after the Yankees had gotten on the board. When Darwinzon Hernandez got into a little trouble in the seventh, Garrett Whitlock got him out of the mess, and stayed in to face the minimum in the eighth. Newcomer Yacksel Rios closed it out in the ninth, as we chanted, “Sweep, sweep, sweep,” gleefully in the stands.

My favorite pictures from the day are below.

Ed-Ro looked like himself today, and turned in a quality start.

Xander went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored.
Christian Vazquez is greeted at the plate by Marwin Gonzalez after his home run.
Newcomer Yacksel Rios shut the door in the ninth.
As Eck would say, “It’s a beautiful thing.”
The final strike. We were chanting “Sweep, sweep sweep” throughout the ninth.
Red Sox win!
