Come From Behind

Monday, June 28, 2021 – Fenway Park, Section 32

Red Sox 6, Royals 5

After a fun weekend sweep of the Yankees, the Royals came to town. Garrett Richards gave up two singles and a home run to the first three batters of the game, then allowed two more homers in the second (and almost a third, if Kiké Hernandez hadn’t reached over the bullpen fence to rob one), and the Sox found themselves down 5-1 in the second. But they were becoming known for their ability to come back, and Hunter Renfroe’s two homers drove in the tying and go-ahead runs, while Richards settled in and the bullpen helped hold Kansas City scoreless the rest of the way.

My pics from another come from behind win – and my yet-to-be-accomplished obsession with getting a picture of someone riding in the home run cart – are below.

Garrett Richards made a big deal of going to the rosin bag multiple times in the first inning. He had been struggling since the crackdown on sticky substances.
Kiké Hernandez led off with a home run for the second night in a row.
I wasn’t able to get a pic of Kiké in the home run cart, but here he is getting congratulated by Hunter Renfroe right after getting out.
When Bobby Dalbec rode the cart after his home run, I did at least get a glimpse of his batting-gloved hands reaching up for high-fives from his teammates.
Garrett Richards settled down after the second, and ended up pitching into the sixth.
Panorama from behind the plate.
From this angle, I still couldn’t see the home run cart, so here’s Hunter Renfroe getting greeted in the dugout after his game-tying homer. I love that Tek and Chris Sale are among those rushing over to get everything ready.
Here’s Hunter Renfroe launching his second homer of the game to give the Sox the lead. If it hadn’t hit off the National Car Rental sign, it might have gone all the way to the Citgo (wink, wink).
Notice what’s wrong with this pic of Rafael Devers’ at-bat in the eighth? The Citgo sign has been turned off. It used to stay lit until midnight, but tonight it was out just before 10:00.
Red Sox win!
