BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was a good day in Boston sports. Two teams played in front of a full crowd for the first time in more than a year Saturday, and the fans didn't let them forget it.
At Fenway, the Red Sox beat the Miami Marlins 3-1 in front of around 20,000 fans according to the AP, who sung a rousing rendition of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline."
"That's the benefit of having home-field advantage. You have your home crowd with you and they were definitely bringing the energy today," said pitcher Nate Eovaldi.
The Bruins took home the win 5-2 against the New York Islanders in front of an equally raucous crowd at the Garden Saturday night. David Pasternak took home a hat trick to sweeten the deal.
