Yankees @ Red Sox, September 11th-13th, 2012
The Bronx Bombers came to town in early September for the last rivalry series between these AL East foes at Fenway. Red Sox fans came from all over the world for the series and to enjoy the beautiful September weather in Boston. Even though the AL East lead was slipping away from us, we still had the chance to play spoiler against those dreaded Yankees. The Tuesday game showed promise as Lester gave up 2 and stuck out 5 in 5 solid innings. Pedroia went 3 for 4 and Ellsbury 4 for 5 in a walk off win for the Home Town Team! The luck ran out for the games on Wednesday and Thursday. Granderson’s 2 home runs took game 2 and the Sox were shut out in game 3 by 7 strong innings from Phil Hughes. Nevertheless, fans got to experience Fenway at its best with the VIP tour, photos with the World Series trophies and rings and a meet and greet with Salty! The weather at Fenway was perfect, the atmosphere electric and everyone had a blast!
