Photo of the Week: (Week 33) Doubleheader

August 16, 2011:  It was an eventful day at Fenway Park when the Red Sox met up with the Rays.  A little bit of everything happened during the doubleheader.  Jon Lester beat out Big Game James Shields in the first game of the day with a little help from Jacoby Ellsbury, the home run king.  Pedroia added his 2 cents with a grab at a bullet liner by B.J. Upton to end the game with a Red Sox win.  The second game of the doubleheader did not end as well.  The Sox could not get the job done; but Jacoby (naturally) got his second homerun of the day.  Pedroia, not to be outdone, made another stabbing catch at a liner up the middle.  And did I mention the triple play?  Lowrie, Pedroia and Gonzalez made it look easy.  To top it all off, our old friend Johnny Damon dropped by to take a few swings.  Fenway Faithful, please stop booing Johnny.  Is your memory that short?  Save the boos for someone more deserving.  (That would be A-Rod.)
