We had good seats:
and the game was nice and exciting, although unfortunately the Red Sox lost to the Chicago White Sox 8-7.
[Some pictures from the game and from a carnival I went to last week.]
Things really got exciting at the bottom of the fifth when Manny Ramirez got a home run and tied up the game 4-4. I happened to record the sounds of the crowd whistling and shouting 'MAN-NY! MAN-NY!' while he was at bat. (The recording cuts off just when he hit a foul ball, but shortly after that he hit a home run, so there you are!)
I got to see two guys from my fantasy baseball team play: Kevin Millar of the Red Sox, who hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth and brought the game within one run of a tie (totals for the evening: 1 hit, 1 base on balls, 2 runs, 2 rbi), and Cliff Politte of the White Sox, who allowed a couple of hits and let the bases get loaded in 1/3 of an inning but who still managed to escape without any runs being charged to him.
It was a great evening! Now if only another guy could have been on base when Millar got the home run ...
