NESN’s 2010 Red Sox Game of the Year Competition Moves to Final Round

by

And then there were two.

The fans have voted for the best 2010 Red Sox game that aired on NESN, with two memorable contests set up for the grand finale.

The first belongs to Mike Lowell. The veteran infielder battled through injuries in his final two years, and when he made his return to the lineup on Aug. 3 after missing a month and a half, he made the most of his standing ovation. With the crowd on its feet, Lowell took the first pitch he saw and launched it over the Green Monster. Many fans forget that the Red Sox won that night 3-1, but nobody will ever forget that moment.

Four months earlier, Fenway Park was buzzing for a much different reason. This time, the Sox had completed an improbable comeback to beat the Yankees on Opening Day. The Sox trailed 5-1 in the fifth before tying things up heading into the seventh. It was then that things looked bleak, with the Yankees taking a two-run lead. The Sox responded, though, with a three-spot in the bottom of the seventh, eventually winning 9-7.
