Logan Morrison rattled Pesky's Pole. But he also struck the Green Monster with such force that the impact shook the numbers on the hand-operated scoreboard.

The pole job was a home run — a solo shot — good for one Marlins run.

The Monster slam was Morrison himself crashing into the antique green wall as he tried, but did not succeed, in tracking down a bases-clearing double by Cody Ross. Three Red Sox runs scored.

That's life in the loss lane for the Marlins.
