Oh, I wish I’d been there

Wow.

Usain Bolt threw out the first pitch.

The Red Sox, down, 6-0, came back to win, 16-11, their biggest comeback against the Yankees since 1968.

Varitek hit a grand slam homer to give the Sox the lead in the fourth.

The Yankees walked Bay in the seventh to pitch to Lowell, who promptly hit a three-run homer.

The Yankees walked Bay in the eighth to pitch to Lowell, who promptly hit a three-run double.

Yankee all-star receiver Jorge Posada was called for catcher’s interference (extremely rare—it means he tipped the batter’s bat with his mitt) and a passed ball in the same inning (the eighth).

The game went four hours, 21 minutes, tied for the sixth longest nine-inning game in Major League history (the two longest games were also between Boston and New York).

It was Boston’s ninth straight win.

New York is dooomed.
