Red Sox 12 Mets 5

Gamma, Gaelen and me had sets for this one right behind the Sox bullpen in the bleachers. Awesome seats. There was a rain delay in the middle of the 1st inning as a thunderstorm came through with lightening, thunder and hail and a mad dash for cover by the fans. Ambiana was with us for the 1st inning and she took shelter beneath my poncho and saved the cell phone but it was too much for her and Mommy came and got her before play resumed. The Mets went up 1-0 on a homer but the Sox came right back with a 3 run blast by Mikey Lowell.

It was intermittent sun and clouds the rest of the game. There were lots of Mets fans in the park which made for fun chants back and forth between the fans. The bleachers sure are different now that tickets are $26. When thery were $3 you had not so many beautiful people out there, but more real fans.

The Mets went up 5-3 as Wake was not on his game but the Sox came back with 3 runs in the 5th, 2 in the 6th and 4 in the 7th when Youk busted a 3 run homer making up for the one that was ruled foul by instant replay. We had a blast out there in right field. Great birthday game as the Sox moveed into 1st place for the first time since last July! Thanks for the homers Youk and Lowell!!!

Youk's 3 run blast!!!!
