Red Sox Comeback To Beat The Yankees

Yankees Red SoxWhat an amazing game that was for the first game against those damn Yankees. The best type of baseball games are ones where the home team is down against their biggest rivals and comeback to win the game in memorable fashion.

who had a two run homer today, made it 6-4 with an RBI single to right off Rivera. Then, Coco Crisp, rifled a two-run triple down the right-field line to tie it. Alex Cora hit a blooper into the outfield RBI single to take the lead 7-6. Hideki Okajima came on in the ninth to close out the ninth and the save for the Red Sox. The rivalry going to be great this year, I just know it.

The Red Sox wore their green jersey’s today because the team was honoring legendary Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach, who died last year at the age of 89. Last week’s originally scheduled celebration was postponed because of wind and rain.

This time, the Red Sox managed to unfurl 16 championship banners from the top of the Green Monster — from ’57, ’59, ’60, ’61, ’62, ’63, ’64, ’65, ’66, ’68, ’69, ’74, ’76, ’81, ’84 and ’86 — and keep them there through the first pitch, a one-hopper down the middle by NBA Hall of Famer Bob Cousy.
