Game starts at 1:40. Going to try to do the duck tour from Prudential center after the game ( leave the game a bit early )
ETA: actually just realized that, that's cutting it close, since my flight leaves at seven.
If I'm landing at 9:45, will that's give me enough time to do the duck tour first, then get to the game on time, and be able to get something to eat and make it back to airport ?
The best option would've been the one that leaves from central wharf, but they appear to only start at noon during the summer. Google says it's ~40 minutes from terminal C to the Prudential Center location via public transportation, potentially a little quicker if you Uber it. Worst case, you're probably talking about an 11am tour, ending around 12:30. That's enough time to Uber to Brookline to pick up food and continue on to Fenway for the 1:40 start.

Go to milk st for lunch.  No Brookline.  Uber from Prudential to Milk st figure is about 15 mins, and then take green line to fenway (can take green line to milk street also, but won't be faster).

So per your suggestions, best bet is to take public transportation to the duck tour at Prudential center.
 Then afterwards uber from to milk st. for some lunch, continue onto Fenway.
After the game head back to the airport.
Thanks all for the help.

Google actually indicates that Harvard St (I used Taam China when searching) is a pretty similar amount of time from the duck tour as Milk St is (12-22 for Taam China, 9-22 for Milk St). And actually they the orange line as only 13 minutes to Milk St. I assume you recommend Milk St vs Brookline based on which eatery is better though, so I guess it's moot.

Lol, I was gonna ask about that when you brought Milk St up before. What's the story there?

Yes, I would take orange line from Pru to MS. 

I recommend MS based on food.  I don't care to have opinions on kosher in boston.  It's out of town, and this is how we roll.

There's a bus goes every 20 minutes from the airport to the Pru area (no stops). It costs 7.50, or 3 dollars if you have a "charliecard" (that's our metrocard).  It's how I usually go if I need to go.

I don't know what's better, but the first one is the original and far more prevalent/popular.  Has been more than 10 years since I did it.

Is this bus right outside the airport, and easy to find?

ETA:

From Airport
Terminal A, B, C, E (Arrivals Level pick-up at Logan Express stops)
Can't say how easy it is to find, but it says clearly there's a terminal C stop.

ETA2: Seems to be a specific spot right outside the terminal. See here:
