Big Win On An Emotional Night At The Fens

By Theomnipotentq @TheMightyQuinn
Big Win On An Emotional Night At The FensIt was an emotional night at Fenway, with the military on hand and a moment of silence for the 9/11 victims in a pregame ceremony after the stunning killing of Bin Laden on Sunday. The clubs lined up along the baselines and the giant American flag was unfurled across the Green Monster.
With Jered Weaver pitching for the Angels, he of the 6-0 record with a 0.99 ERA, would you have believed the Red Sox would tag him with his first loss of 2011?
It was a tight affair until the 7th, when the Red Sox pulled out the whoopin' sticks and scored six runs, capped by a bomb hit by David Ortiz into the Monster seats.
But the at-bat of the night was by Dustin Pedroia. He battled Weaver with runners on second and third and two outs to a 13-pitch battle in the fifth, as he kept fouling off pitch after pitch. Dustin won it with a line single up the middle, putting the Red Sox ahead to stay, 3-2.
Clay Buchholz looked shaky to start the evening, but settled down and went 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs for his second victory.
Wow. The Sox faced both Felix Hernandez and Jered Weaver in back-to-back games and came out with two victories. They are now 13-15, still 5 games behind New York.
Jerry Remy again missed Monday's game, and he Tweeted that he has a "bit of pneumonia" and will miss a few more games. Here's more from CBS Boston. (With thanks to my friend Lisa for the link.)
