It’s was a getaway afternoon day game for the Red Sox at Fenway today. After giving up a 3-0 lead, the Red Sox were finally able to pull away from the Orioles, settling for a 7-4 win.
Tim Wakefield picked up his 150th win as a member of the Red Sox. Eric Gagne also made his Red Sox debut, giving up a run on a pair of hits in the ninth inning.
The ceremonies honoring Bobby Doerr prior to the game were well done, as usual, and getting to see and hear Doerr at Fenway one last time was moving. Doerr said he watches every Red Sox game back home in Oregon, and had some kind words for the Red Sox current second baseman, Dustin Pedroia.
