Bermuda Night at Fenway Park, did not start the way many would have hoped, however mother nature allowed those who braved the conditions to enjoy the baseball and everything Bermuda had to show.
Shelia Smith sang the National Anthem, before Premier and Minister of Tourism & Transport Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown, JP, MP threw Jon Crellin, Fairmont Hamilton Princess general manager and President of the Bermuda Hotel Association who threw out the first pitch.
In the game Marco Scutaro matched a career-high by driving in four runs in support of starter John Lackey, who fanned a season-high 10 batters as the Red Sox beat the Mariners, 6-3, on Monday in the three-game series opener at Fenway Park.
Lackey, whose previous high strikeout total this season was seven, allowed scattered six hits over eight innings, allowing three runs — two earned — while walking two.
Scutaro's second two-run single of the night in the seventh inning snapped a 3-3 tie and propelled the Sox to their third straight win.
Remarkably, the grounds crew had the field ready to go on time, despite heavy, driving rain in the hours leading up to first pitch. The Red Sox improved to 5-2 on their nine-game homestand.
