G146: Red Sox 16, Devil Rays 10

Devil Rays - 040 410 001 - 10 18 1
Red Sox - 001 436 20x - 16 20 0
Down 8-1, the Red Sox rallied. And then some!

***

Andy Sonnanstine (5.73, 80 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.39, 104 ERA+)

Wakefield has pitched 19 straight scoreless innings against Tampa, dating back to July 27. ... On August 21, Boston battered Sonnanstine for eight hits and seven runs in five innings.

The Yankees are in Toronto tonight: Hughes/Marcum. The Tigers (3.5 GB in the WC) host Texas this afternoon.

I'd certainly take a sweaty walk...

Amy said...

Appliance doctor is here to make an emergency visit, meaning over $300 to fix the damn refrigerator. BUt we have no choice---thing is filled with food for Rosh Hashanah. So you think the Sox have problems?

ish said...

Sweaty walk. And heeeeere's oCoC!

L-girl said...

yookitude! and we're loaded again.

thatdietcokegirl said...

toronto has no game against wonderboy 5+ era huges wtf.

ish said...

Someone has a chance to win a car here. Fourth batter in the 5th hits a grand slam, someone wins a new car. Heh.

L-girl said...

Hey, you gotta have a fridge. $300 is less than the cost of food poisoning.

David said...

joe magrane on rays tv says the rays are teasing the red sox into thinking they can get back in it.

ish said...

Well, no car. But a run will do!

Can I haz more!?

L-girl said...

How bout we score a run w/out giving up an out, eh?

nick said...

in play, run(s)!!!!

Amy said...

Maybe the tide is turning now that I am back? Only three run gap! How did TB score all those runs? Why is everything in italics? Is this some alternative universe of JOS?

nick said...

oh. a sac. still. I like the positive excitement even with the losing score. yooo-ha.

redsock said...

thanks for the migraine update, david!

Amy said...

YES

L-girl said...

SLUUUUUGO!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

can't stop slugo ...

you can only hope to contain him.

ish said...

HEADY BASE RUNNING FOR LUGO..

YEAH SLÜGO!!!

L-girl said...

yeah yook! sneak over that plate.

David said...

redsock, no problem. down here in tampa it's all i get.

ish said...

YOOOOOOOK!!! It's great to see these guys be agressive!

redsock said...

no dongs, but a couple of nice sacs.

David said...

a few innings ago he was giddy that the rays would pass the orioles tonight and climb out of last palce

ish said...

Yep! Large sacs.

ish said...

Birthday boy up.

L-girl said...

Birthday boy hacking.

ish said...

and Birthday Boy down. But that's okay! Just have to keep the Rays from scoring.

redsock said...

Memo to Tampa Bay announcers: Never get giddy about anything.

thatdietcokegirl said...

can the bullpen plzzz have a 1-2-3 inning?

s1c said...

Yep, italics only in internet explorer.

The sox need to hold them this inning.

L-girl said...

Now we'd BETTER win this game, it will be too annoying if we don't!

ish said...

Memo to Tampa Bay announcers: Never get giddy about anything.

Except maybe their AAA club. They're in the playoffs! (Durham Bulls and their Blue Monster.)

SoSock said...

no dongs, but a couple of nice sacs.
Jeez, I thought I'd checked into the wrong thread there for a moment.
That was a nice inning, tho. Glad to see us still working.
BTW - I like Lugo MUCH better in the 7 or 8 spot. Just my opinion :)

L-girl said...

Worst name for a pitcher ever! Grant Balfour.

His cousin's name is Joey I. Giveuphomeruns.

redsock said...

L is telling me about new posts and I keep refreshing in Firefox and nothing is coming up. After refreshing 3-4 times.

Hanging up, long hourglass times, frankly it sucks for me right now.

SUX.

L-girl said...

Ish, you are really up on the minors, eh? That's cool. Can't imagine how you have time for it, but it's neat.

David said...

ish, actually 3 of 4 rays minor league affiliates are in the playoffs

tim said...

Wow, I leave for 15 mins and we're almost there! Keep them dongs and sacs coming!

SoSock said...

Nice, Corey!
HUGE K

ish said...

FANTASTIC TURN on that double play by Pedroia!!!

It would take a fool to discount defense for rookie of the year. Perhaps the other leading candidate for rookie of the year grounds into a double play. Take THAT.

SoSock said...

Woo Hoo!
Just what the Doctor ordered!

L-girl said...

Great play. Grrrreat.

thatdietcokegirl said...

DING-DONG!!

ish said...

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR DONG!!!!!


YEAH!! WORK IT PEDROIA!

redsock said...

DUSTY DONG

L-girl said...

That's our Dusty!!!!!!

Amy said...

Yes, refrigerator is fixed, and Sox tie the score!

L-girl said...

pee-wee dong :)

redsock said...

back with IE and -- it's working fast and with NO ITALICS.

yay IE

chief said...

Buried in work, so I'll read the thread later. But just wanted to stop by and say "Woohoo! Fuck Yeah!"

tim said...

Sidenote: LMFAO!

I'm sorry about the irrelevant posts, I just howled at that. I don't know what's scarier, the message or the fact that that's a dude.

L-girl said...

papi! me likey

tim said...

WOW, I should really stop watching...whenever I go away, good things happen.

redsock said...

"9 a side" - DRINK SOME RALLY JUICE!

thatdietcokegirl said...

back with IE and -- it's working fast and with NO ITALICS.

yay IE


i think it's cuz i deleted my post ;)

SoSock said...

You know. You hear the old line about the guy who turned the great defensive play having a good at-bat if he leads off the next inning so often you get sick of it. - But DAMN if it isn't so often true

thatdietcokegirl said...

WOW, I should really stop watching...whenever I go away, good things happen.

magical fan alert! ;p

L-girl said...

there's off-topic and there's off-topic. tim's post is as off-topic as it gets.

this off-topic post brought to you by the slow, clunky, overloaded-with-useless-features firefox

ish said...

mdc warming.

s1c said...

i think it's cuz i deleted my post ;)

Yeah tdcg!!!

come on boys lets get some more runs!!!!!

redsock said...

DOCTOR 4-for-4

Amy said...

I am really feeling better. Nice to see the bats working again.

ish said...

BALLS ON THE WALL. The Good Doctor delivers again.

L-girl said...

You hear the old line about the guy who turned the great defensive play having a good at-bat if he leads off the next inning so often you get sick of it.

These days people mostly say it sarcastically. Like "how often does that happen, the guy who makes the great play comes up 3rd in the next inning and walks?"

Amy said...

Drew...keep it going.

SoSock said...

And now for the new and improved JD Drew - brought to you by Extreme Makeover - Season 2

L-girl said...

Sosock, that's a reality show I just might watch.

Amy said...

Drew at least having a good long at bat.

ish said...

Fastball after fastball after fastball, then a curve, and Drew stayed with it and fouled it off. He's seeing the ball very well right now it looks like.

thatdietcokegirl said...

good swings too.

tim said...

way to battle, drew-r

L-girl said...

Next pitch Drew has an official long at-bat.

SoSock said...

By God - he's fighting!

thatdietcokegirl said...

fahhhhhhhhhhhk foul ball. looked so good off the bat.

L-girl said...

ahhhh, thought that was a double, just a foul. "new piece of lumber for drew" says don.

Amy said...

So I finally got to check the box score...can't believe it was 8-1 at one point. Go Sox! Nice comeback.

L-girl said...

Nice AB!!

ish said...

What an at-bat. I'd call that one his best AB of the season right there.

Amy said...

Walk to load them. I am actually starting to think Drew may be coming around.

tim said...

ahhhh, thought that was a double, just a foul. "new piece of lumber for drew" says don.

You must be ahead of me on MLBTV. Right as he said that, I read it. Twas crazy!

s1c said...

Frag. He broke his two hit bat. TG he drew the walk, get it drew!!!!

time for youuuuuuk dong!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

youk homers here.

redsock said...

drew fouls off 6 pitches and then takes an obvious "balfour"

tim said...

Well ALRIGHT! I think we're about due for the Sweaty Dong.

SoSock said...

:)

L-girl said...

"can't believe it was 8-1 at one point."

yes, it looked dismal.

damn, baseball is crazy.

ish said...

Mirabelli's trying to keep Beckett warm.

thatdietcokegirl said...

clement: draped over joshy in the dugout.

ok.

Amy said...

NICE

thatdietcokegirl said...

ALMOST!!

*bases clearing triple!!!!*

redsock said...

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

TRIPLE

L-girl said...

YES!!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

Am so glad I took B-fly to dance. Means I got to watch the bases clearing triple. Almost as good as the Dong!!!!!

ish said...

This Youk Triple brought to you buy Wrigley's new Triple-Mint gum. Triple your flavor, triple your fun!

tim said...

can't believe it was 8-1 at one point.

The way I saw it at that bleak time...if it could happen to us last week with our 100 million dollar man on the mound, we can damn well do it to TB.

YOOOOOOOOOOK!

SoSock said...

BIG :)

tim said...

Damn, I wanted to see an inside the park dong (2 in one year for yook - would have been amazing)

L-girl said...

Yook should be sponsored by Secret or Dial.

L-girl said...

Whoo-hoo! 13-9

Amy said...

Baseball is crazy. We once listened to a non-Sox game on the radio (can't remember the teams, but it was about four years ago) where a team came back from something like a 13 run deficit. It might have been the Indians or Tigers. Some Midwest team.

NICE. 13-9

ish said...

oCoC!!!!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

this.
is what i'm talkin bout ;)!

s1c said...

Giddy!!!!

!!!!!ocoC

redsock said...

Hey Joe Migraine! How ya doin' now?

:>)

tim said...

Whoo-hoo! 13-9

Fuck sakes, I saw that post before the pitch that Crisp hit to make it 13-9!

Damn u slow mlbtv.

SoSock said...

Ribby for OcOc

thatdietcokegirl said...

amy, yah it's nuts. i remember like last year or something the phillies (or the cards?) came back from 11 runs down or something in the 9th, to win it! insane.

L-girl said...

Amy, you're not talking about the famous Seattle-Cleveland game, are you? It was the biggest comeback in baseball history. If you google it, there's a Wikipedia page on the game.

Amy said...

OK, trivia question to which I do not know the answer: What is the largest deficit any team has ever overcome to win a game?

SoSock said...

Tim - I'm in the same shape with GDGD (goddamn GameDay)
Saw the Woo-Hoo post before the pitch showed up on screen.
Oh well, better than nothing at all

Amy said...

That must be the game, L-girl. I thought it was the Indians. I will look for it on Wikipedia because I know the date, roughly, was in August, maybe 4-6 years ago?

David said...

Redsock, I believe he just said Delmon Young is the obvious choice for ROY.

L-girl said...

august 5 2001, i think allan has the details

SoSock said...

Damn guys - 2 straight 1st pitch swings with fresh meat on the mound.
Discipline, puhlease!

Amy said...

August 5, 2001, that's the game. It was my birthday. We had driven to Maine to see friends and somehow got the game on some distant radio station that came in clearly and heard the whole comeback. It was the best non-Sox game I had heard since Seaver's 19 K game in 70 (I got it right this time, Redsock---19, not 20)

ish said...

L's BOYYYY.

L-girl said...

"I will look for it on Wikipedia because I know the date, roughly, was in August, maybe 4-6 years ago?"

Very good! August 5 2001.

redsock said...

Three teams have come back from 12 runs down:

1911 Detroit Tigers
1925 Philadelphia A's
and Cleveland on August 5, 2001

SEA 048 020 000 00 - 14 17 0
CLE 000 200 345 01 - 15 23 1

No team has ever come back from 13 runs down to win a game.

s1c said...

and the hits and the runs just keep on rolling.

Rolling, rolling, keep those doggies rolling.

brought to you by carmel by the sea mayor.

SoSock said...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe -
That was Laura's Boy!

tim said...

Niiiice Lyndon.

Multi-dong inning for DP?

Amy said...

Apparently I tend to add one to every baseball memory I have---12 run deficit, not 13. 19 Ks for Seaver, not 20. Thanks, Redsock, for keeping me on my toes. But I am likely one of the more senior posters here, so forgive my bad memory.

tim said...

Heh, there was a couple seconds where the score was 9-11 (when Lowell came in on Yook's triple and Drew was at third)

s1c said...

Redsock, I believe he just said Delmon Young is the obvious choice for ROY.

I hate to bust his bubble but the Sox have the next two ROY's locked up.

dustin 2007
lbj - 2008

L-girl said...

Amy, that is so cool, what a lovely picture that brings up.

I love driving somewhere, on a long road trip, or coming home late at night, tuning in to some distant game, getting caught up in the excitement.

Plus your birthday and an amazing game. Great memory.

Amy said...

Now THAT was a good half inning.

redsock said...

TBD: 040 410
BRS: 001 436

fuck yeah!

L-girl said...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe -
That was Laura's Boy!


You are correct, sir!

I was busy commenting and modding, I forgot to say:

THAT'S MY BOY!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

now if toronto could just score 8 in the 9th. that would be the cherry on my sundae :)

L-girl said...

thanks for saving mdc's arm!

SoSock said...

It's hard to believe I got home in the middle of the 5th and we were down 9 - 4, and the 6th has just ended with us up by 5. No wonder it seems like I've been watching the whole game

redsock said...

why would anyone give up on these fuckers?

8-1? please.

L-girl said...

So often by the time a game ends, it feels like a completely different game than the one you started.

That didn't come out well, but maybe you know what I mean.

Amy said...

I like your thinking, Dietcokegirl. But I will also be happy to keep the 5 game lead in tact.

ish said...

MDC comes in throwing GAS. 96-97.

ish said...

6 fastballs... And then the hook.

redsock said...

gomes.

he gone.

tim said...

MDC comes in throwing GAS. 96-97.

Better than sniffing it.

thatdietcokegirl said...

I like your thinking, Dietcokegirl. But I will also be happy to keep the 5 game lead in tact.

oh me too. for sure! i'll still enjoy my sundae, cherry or not ;D

Amy said...

By the way, was there any report on whether Wakefield was injured or did he just not have the knuckler working tonight?

tim said...

But I will also be happy to keep the 5 game lead in tact.

Remember when there were MFY fans waving around four fingers at a beloved Joy poster (whose name escapes me)...It appears that those same four fingers are still waving a month later.

ish said...

Navarro just sniffed some gas just now.

ish said...

Yankees win.

Amy said...

Nice try by Dusty! He has spunk, as Lou Grant would say.

L-girl said...

Yeah Tim, that's 9Casey I think. He hasn't been around lately but I'd love to hear what his friends are doing now.

redsock said...

MFY scored 9 runs on 11 hits.

Spooky!

ish said...

Wakefield was injured or did he just not have the knuckler working tonight?

I wouldn't be surprised if the back tightened up on him, but he was getting absolutely smacked around today.

One more out, please, MDC.
Don: Tampa Bay not going quietly.

L-girl said...

Lou Grant :)

thatdietcokegirl said...

weird.

tim said...

Jeemer getting warm.

Amy said...

Phew, I thought I might be dating myself there with the MTM reference. :)

ish said...

Yeah Tim, that's 9Casey I think. He hasn't been around lately but I'd love to hear what his friends are doing now.

That doesn't surprise me. He certainly always has a retort for something, it seems.

thatdietcokegirl said...

mdc looks like he's growing a beard. maybe just not shaving...

(oh jeez here comes god bless america)

Amy said...

Strange rendition of God Bless America...all tenors? Or was it my TV?

thatdietcokegirl said...

wow, the pats videotape-cheating scandal is scandelous.

tim said...

I love how NESN shows Schilling for half of this, probably with a stiffy in his pants for GWB.

L-girl said...

nice tim :)

ish said...

Strange rendition of God Bless America...all tenors? Or was it my TV?

I thought so too. But I'm sure I couldn't sing it better than they could.

s1c said...

MDC is a new papa. Not sure if you saw that but his wife had a bouncing baby boy either yesterday or sunday. So, he's probably been to busy to shave.

tim said...

wow, the pats videotape-cheating scandal is scandelous.

*whispers* we're not allowed to talk about that here! but yeah, i only heard a little bit about it, probably will watch the sportscenter segment about it to get caught up on it.

L-girl said...

it's gba that helped push me away from the yankees. i couldn't take all that military-pseudo-patriotic crap at the stadium anymore.

thatdietcokegirl said...

nope, amy i used to watch MTM on nick-at-nite all the time :))

redsock said...

I love how NESN shows Schilling for half of this, probably with a stiffy in his pants for GWB.

And yet I don't think he'll in much of a hurry to drive Gehrig to the recruiting office.

ish said...

BIG PAPI DONG!!!!

s1c said...

Papi dong

thatdietcokegirl said...

PAPI!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

FLO


GOOD TIMES DONG!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

PAPI DONG!!!!

Amy said...

Good for Papi, bad knee and all!!

tim said...

oh fuck yea! FLO!!!!!

Jere said...

Tack one on to this never-had-a-doubt victory.

nick said...

came back from putting emma to sleep, er..to bed and wow! watching GDGD, but dang-oh-dang!

Tim: that video was, ah, terrifying. Here's one that is NSFW if anyone is reading over your sholder or is easily offended, but I was dying laughing: http://tinyurl.com/2r8ad2 (youtube link)

*whispers* okay! its' just....oh man. how stupid of them!! -sigh-

L-girl said...

i didn't know mdc is a new daddy. cool.

nope, amy i used to watch MTM on nick-at-nite all the time :))

that's cool.

i have a feeling amy and i watched it in real time. :)

s1c said...

drew dong!!!!

ish said...

DREW DONG!!!!! WOW.

What slump!?!?

redsock said...

JD DONG!!!

ON FUCKIN FIRE........

Amy said...

Nick at Nite...that didn't exist when I watched MTM...as a first run show!

And yes, that Yankee tenor who sang GBA got on my nerves. But on 9/11, it seems appropriate.

DREW HITS IT OUT! OMG!

L-girl said...

WERD!!!!!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

double dong!!!

(i could've got naughtier on that)

tim said...

DREW DONG!

L-girl said...

so last night we don't score a run, first two innings tonight we don't score, it feels like we're never going to score again... and now this. ah, baseball.

Amy said...

This is getting to be maybe TOO much fun! I want them to save some for the series this weekend.

tim said...

He couldn't have picked a better time to step it up!

NSFW=not safe for work--no nudity in this case, but could be found offensive, so proceed at your own risk.

I know...I'm a digg-er so no need to explain...no need to worry though, I'm a student. Will check it out next commercial break...the title does sound promising though.

redsock said...

another blast upton gives up on that was catchable. hits low on Cf wall.

yeah -- witasick, you are next!!!

s1c said...

At this point I am like, save some for tomorrow and the weekend guys!!!

L-girl said...

And yes, that Yankee tenor who sang GBA got on my nerves.

Oh no, it had nothing to do with that. More involved.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i love when yr ahead and then you can be all 'good play' about the other team. really takes my stress level down. thx sox!!

nick said...

look at 'em chalking up the hits. even cash is over .100.

ish said...

This is incredible, isn't it? The Red Sox were down by 7 runs going into the bottom of the third, and now they're AHEAD by 7 runs.

I knew they had a good chance of coming back, but this is icing on the cake.

tim said...

At this point I am like, save some for tomorrow and the weekend guys!!!

Especially Friday! haha

thatdietcokegirl said...

it's getting to be like that at fenway (or it is already) with the relentless (usually crap) renditions of gba + military/patriotic nonsense.

redsock said...

16-9.

Timlin warming. We're safe, right?

nick said...

figured you'd know, Tim, but an acronym like NSFW is best defined.

Gotta get me to a tv.

SoSock said...

Wow - Tim man comes in and I don't even feel nervous! Cool

ish said...

Bryan Corey in line for the win for the Red Sox.

Amy said...

"Oh no, it had nothing to do with that. More involved."

I have only been to Yankee Stadium once, and it was before 9/11, so I wouldn't really know, except for the games I have seen on TV.

L-girl said...

it's getting to be like that at fenway (or it is already) with the relentless (usually crap) renditions of gba + military/patriotic nonsense.

that's a shame. it's bad to see everyone succumb to it.

interesting choice of words: renditions :/

i won't post a link, but if anyone is interested, i wrote about my experience sitting down during GBA, it's linked on my blog under "a sit-down strike"

don't be shocked, i refer to myself as a yankees fan :)

ish said...

Detroit splits the doubleheader against Texas. Tonight they win 4-1.

NYY --
DET 4 GB
SEA 6 GB

tim said...

figured you'd know, Tim, but an acronym like NSFW is best defined.

Understandable.

He gone.
