G7: Red Sox 8, Yankees 1
A perfect afternoon. I was able to watch the pre-game ceremonies via a NESN broadcast on my laptop -- which was a godsend since ESPN was utterly useless. The Baseball Tonight broadcast showed scattered clips -- a lot less than I expected -- and even then the four anchors insisted on blabbing idiotically, thus ruining the moment.
Wakefield pitched seven strong innings, Mantei looked better than usual, Foulke pitched a perfect ninth (great, use him in an 8-1 game, but not a 3-3 tie), Mirabelli hit an early bomb off of Mussina, Millar and Nixon both had two-rbi hits and Renteria banged a double in his final at-bat.
Various SoSHers were at the game and have posted pictures here.
