G149: Red Sox 10, Yankees 1

Yankees - 100 000 000 -  1  4 0
Red Sox - 100 013 41x - 10 12 0
Win #90. The lead's back up to to 5.5 and the magic number is down to nine. (The sportswriters for the New York tabloids will have to do a 180-degree turn from today's "alive" articles.)

Boston pulled away against the feeble New York bullpen. Torre used five pitchers in the seventh inning as the Red Sox got two hits and drew five walks, scoring four times.

David Ortiz reached base five times (two singles, two walks, and a two-run double), Jacoby Ellsbury scored a run as a pinch-runner for Kevin Youkilis (HBP, contusion to his right wrist) in the sixth, then singled in two runs of his own in the seventh. JD Drew reached three times, thanks to two walks and a single. Eric Hinske doubled, walked and homered.

Beckett (7-3-1-2-7, 108) was superb. A solo home run by Derek Jeter gave New York a 1-0 lead in the first. After two walks, also in the first inning, Beckett settled down. The Yankees managed only one baserunner over the next 19 batters -- when there were two outs in the seventh inning.

***

Chien-Ming Wang (3.69, 118 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.27, 140 ERA+)

I hate leaving before the 8th inning.

Don't you mean 9th inning?

ish said...

Or a rag arm that we'll tee off on. One of those.

Guess he shouldn't have quit his day job.

ish said...

Big Baby loosening. (Bruney)

ish said...

Villone... no soup for you!

"They will remember this inning: the Yankees, the Red Sox, New York City, New England. They will remember what happened in the bottom of the sixth at Fenway Park this morning, next week, next month. If things happen the way it looks like they may well happen from here on in, they will remember this inning 50 years from now. Every detail. Every minute. Every second."

Amy said...

Well, of course, the 9th inning. But after last night, the 8th is making me nervous.

OK, enjoy the rest, everyone. And I am sure hoping tomorrow we are back to five and half ahead.

Lord Lynch said...

Very nice to see you Ronny.

Now f*** off - there's a good chap.

Lord Lynch said...

Why? What happened? I was asleep.

ish said...

Why? What happened? I was asleep.

Boy, that sounds like what I'd say a lot of times in high school.

I was thinking of Coma Guy.

L-girl said...

In play, run(s)!!!

ish said...

Woo hoo!!! Ground-rule RBI double for Coco down the right field line.

6-1!

Lord Lynch said...

oCoC!!!!!!

I am an insurance man...

redsock said...

nazi punks, fuck off.

ish said...

Bases loaded, for You Know Who.

Why, yes! The rookie of the year!

L-girl said...

nazi punks?

Lord Lynch said...

WALKIES!!!!!!

redsock said...

Very nice to see you Ronny.

Now f*** off - there's a good chap.


This is still making my giggle 5 minutes after reading it.

nixon33 said...

nazi punks?

L-girl said...

pile it on, boys, pile it on!

redsock said...

lord: search on this page for "vaccaro"

L-girl said...

This is still making my giggle 5 minutes after reading it.

The Lord is an excellent addition to our gamethread.

ish said...

It's too bad Lord has to sit around all night for these games!

You must love day-games, huh?

redsock said...

it's a dead kennedys song. and bruney is a nazi.

(it would have worked way better if LBJ had been the batter!)

ish said...

I'd love to have seen Youk hit a home run off of Bruney.

nixon33 said...

fuck you martin short

L-girl said...

It's too bad Lord has to sit around all night for these games!

I've always imagined us living in London for a time. But baseball really wouldn't work, would it.

L-girl said...

what did martin short say?

Lord Lynch said...

As in the Vaccaro who flipped positions over Roger Clemens.

My girlfriend despises Clemens. She reckoned he should have given the Hummer back.

ish said...

Sir Lyndon with the bases loaded.

My heart's fluttering a little bit. And I'm a dude.

redsock said...

4th mfy pitcher of the inning.

Lord Lynch said...

I like pitchers with 7.49 ERAS.

L-girl said...

My heart's fluttering a little bit. And I'm a dude.

I bet lots of dudes be fluttering over LBJ.

"Fluttering".

nixon33 said...

l-girl: he just sdaid to mccarver"ellisbury wears the same number as bob stanley, in 86 when the sox blew that championship" or words to that effect...

Lord Lynch said...

Not too bad tonight - it isn't even midnight yet!

L-girl said...

fuck you martin short!

ish said...

LYNDON!!! You make my heart sing!

2-run single up the middle!

L-girl said...

OMG do I love that kid!!!

and ps

That's my boy!

redsock said...

Lyndon grabs his shovel!

Lord Lynch said...

Calm down dear. He's only a ball player.

Even my slightly effeminate left big toe has the hots for Jacoby.

Colin said...

I think we may have found one hell of a future outfielder, like Pedroia being our hot new infielder.

bennymac said...

lyndon for rookie of the year! (ok next year)

nixon33 said...

THE KID!
need to play everyday. period.

L-girl said...

it's so exciting have all these great young players. and more on the way. it's crazy great.

Lord Lynch said...

Putting Sean Henn in a game for the Yankees, is the same as putting "All By Myself" by Eric Carmen as a last dance record at a disco!

redsock said...

LYNDON!!! You make my heart sing!

Layers of meaning.

L-girl said...

LYNDON!!! You make my heart sing!

:<)


you know I thought the same thing. do you think ish is really you-know-who in disguise???

(J/K)

ish said...

Cashman, seeing the scoreboard, decides to call a certain 900 number for comfort.

L-girl said...

lyndon for rookie of the year! (ok next year)

yup, FY this year, LBJ next year. keep em coming!

Lord Lynch said...

Game day has two balls in the dirt and two by his ankles.

Chicken.

ish said...

do you think ish is really you-know-who in disguise???

Who? Who?

*ears perk up* Hmmmm?

nixon33 said...

another fat fuck out of the yank bullpen?
what are they feeding those guys?

redsock said...

Torre bringing his 5th rag arm in this inning!!!!

Shit save an arm or two for when Fatass gets battered tomorrow.

Lord Lynch said...

Sean. Sean. Sean.

It's just not working son.

Nite Nite.

redsock said...

Ross Ohlendorf?

(scary!)

L-girl said...

and don't be thinking you're scoring 6 runs in late innings again. that was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we won't be offering it to you. ever. again.

redsock said...

THE KID!
need to play everyday. period.


Can he catch?

ish said...

5 pitchers in one inning. Wow.

L-girl said...

Ross Ohlendorf?

(scary!)


LMAO

L-girl said...

too bad last night scarred us for life and we're unable to enjoy this now.

'NT!!!

Lord Lynch said...

How good must you be to come in after Sean Henn?

L-girl said...

How good must you be to come in after Sean Henn?

Kinda says it all right there.

ish said...

THANK YOU OHLENDORK.

ish said...

Nothing like a no-contact RBI. :D

Lord Lynch said...

THAT GOOD!

L-girl said...

wheee, this is fun!

ish said...

Lowell's walk four times with the bases loaded this year.

Lord Lynch said...

I hear Sutcliffe going on about the farm system een as I type.

Bring on JtC.

nixon33 said...

take some pitches jd, come on man.

redsock said...

what is this - a 45 minute wait for beckett.

L-girl said...

jd's been on base 3 times today, drove in a key run.

i know you know that.

never mind, i'll shut up.

redsock said...

4 runs on 2 hits and 5 walks

heck of a bullpen, brownie.

L-girl said...

that measley little jeter homer seems like a long time ago...

ish said...

Derek Lowe allowed 1 run on 4 hits in 7 innings, gets the win against the D-Backs.

Interesting...
Derek Lowe improves to 12-12, and Livan Hernandez gets the loss and is now 10-10.

redsock said...

Tizzle on base 5 times today.

nixon33 said...

ive been backing jd as well. its just so weird as i think he has one of the best "eyes" on the team when it comes to balls and strikes. he swung at a lot of balls that at bat. just being spoiled i guess.

redsock said...

Guess the NY tabloid writers can do a complete 180 and crank out "it's over" for tomorrow's fishwrap.

L-girl said...

when this team is clicking, it's easy to get spoiled!

ish said...

Great play by Hinske! Went to his left, stabbed that hot shot from Damon, whirled and threw on to Timlin.

Lord Lynch said...

5 to go.

ish said...

Jeter told one of the ESPN guys that the one guy he least likes to face is Mike Timlin.

Hard to figure, but when Timlin's on...

L-girl said...

Jeter told one of the ESPN guys that the one guy he least likes to face is Mike Timlin.

Maybe it's his politics. Maybe Jeter is a secret lefty. :)

nixon33 said...

i dont fucking care what celebs are at the game.

nixon33 said...

saved a double.

L-girl said...

celeb cam is the worst thing about fox, and that is really saying something. in october it's disgusting - plugging all their fall shows by giving celebs the best seats.

WE DON'T CARE

ish said...

Red Sox/Yankee matches coming into tonight averaged 3 hours, 35 minutes per game.

redsock said...

CI against Timlin:

32 PA
6-for-25, double, HR
.240/.387/.400

redsock said...

now 7-for-26.

ish said...

FOX baseball is horrible... for baseball.

redsock said...

FOX baseball is horrible... for baseball.

They are perfect for the Selig Era. Whatever decision they make, it is obvious that the smart decision is the opposite. Every time.

nixon33 said...

fuck you abreu. i hate your guts.

ish said...

That was a FANTASTIC pitch from Timlin to K Abreu.

redsock said...

quit dickin' around you fuckin' neo-con and get some outs.

L-girl said...

sit down!

L-girl said...

we're steaming some serious spinach today!

Lord Lynch said...

Adios Abreu.

4 to go.

Time for the patented A-Rod bargain bucket HR.

phrenile said...

Wow, Timlin actually got someone to strike out swinging. Fifth time this year?

redsock said...

that's better. now get slappy!

L-girl said...

Time for the patented A-Rod bargain bucket HR.

take that back!

ish said...

...as we eclipse 500 comments once again

ish said...

SIT DOWN SLAPPY.

L-girl said...

with two of our big gamethreaders at the game!

Lord Lynch said...

or not.

Opt Out of Playing Hard. Like CI.

redsock said...

nice work, white flag.

Lord Lynch said...

We SHALL remember THAT 8th for a while. Timlin struck TWO out swinging.

Colin said...

Wow...Timlin just owned them.

L-girl said...

yup, beautiful inning. i'll *try* to lay off him for a while.

ish said...

And now the Yankee regulars come out of the game, and we enter the Spring Training fog.

L-girl said...

torre's putting in the bench.

Lord Lynch said...

I'm playing dismal 80s pop classics on youtube.

Ryan Paris - Dolce Vita. Seems apt for A-Fraud.

phrenile said...

That's a lot of defensive substitutions. I guess Torre didn't learn about not giving up last night.

ish said...

JtC warming.

Dun dun dun. Hide the children!

Lord Lynch said...

There's an Italian island in right field. What is going on?

redsock said...

It's garbage time, folks!

Great morale boost when your manager shows he has no faith in your ability to come back!!!

ish said...

HINSKE DONG!!!! Double digits! 10-1!

nixon33 said...

HINSKE!

Lord Lynch said...

dorf.

You now have an ERA!

L-girl said...

hinske dong!! see, he DOES contribute!

Lord Lynch said...

from 0 to 5.40 in an eye blink.

Lord Lynch said...

And well over the island in right field. Huge hit.

L-girl said...

who's gonna pitch the 9th? not that i'm in a rush or anything, if we want to score another 5 runs.

phrenile said...

Corey, I hear.

redsock said...

Yep, Corey.

ish said...

I hope Okajima and Pap are feeling a little better today.

I wore my Okajima shirt for support today.

redsock said...

Tigers get 4 in the top of the first in Minnesota!!!

ish said...

Santana pitching tonight for MIN also.

L-girl said...

GO TIGERS!!!

Lord Lynch said...

Preparations made for retirement to the land of zzzzzzzzzzz.

Can't trust you lot to keep even this lead....so awake I'll stay.

bennymac said...

did beckett clinch the cy young award with his performance today?

Lord Lynch said...

lights out.

ish said...

WOOT!!!!!

Beckett is now 19-6!

And he'll have, what, two attempts at 20 games?

redsock said...

Bronson Sardinha's 1st MLB plate appearance -- 1st pitch game-ending 463 DP!!


5.5 GA

magic number now 9

L-girl said...

Lord L, get some shuteye. How do you deal with tomorrow's late start w/ work the next day? DVR?

ish said...

I don't think Beckett clinched the Cy Young, but I certainly think you can count Chien-Ming Wang out of it to this point. But Beckett's got as good a chance at it as ever.

nixon33 said...

well done everyone.
we are gonna feast on billy tomorrow.

L-girl said...

Great game!

5.5 GAME LEAD

MAGIC NUMBER 9

Have a good night everybody. I leave work at 8, so I'll see y'all tomorrow.

redsock said...

In the pea-size brains of the voters, he might have.

Lord Lynch said...

It is on terrestrial TV at 1 in the morning. However the picture is rubbish, and I have difficulty with it on satellite.

I'll probably DVD record it to a hard drive. Or watch it and be fucked for work.

We'll see......

westcoastsox said...

#19 gets #19 as the Sox win total goes up to 90 and the magic number drops to 9. And the Sox win by 9!

Lord Lynch said...

London Lord Lynch signing off.

I enjoyed it immensely. Especially chocolate rain.

This is Ron Villone. And I'm walking.

Nite Nite.

westcoastsox said...

Oh, and first to 90 wins! I think (but am not certain) that we are the only team with a shot at 100 this year.

redsock said...

thanks, lord.

maybe this is like a spring training to get your body in shape for the playoffs?

redsock said...

I only want to see you laughing in the chocolate rain ...

L-girl said...

thanks, lord.

next thing i know you'll be on the bible diet

redsock said...

Just checked in with the Tigers:

Det: 400 000 00
Min: 001 010 1

Tigers trying to cut NY's WC lead to 2.5.

ish said...

Top 9 now in Minnesota. 4-3 still.

redsock said...

Todd Jones trying to nail to down.

Twins have the tying run on with 2 outs.

redsock said...

Tigers win!!

Trail in the WC race by only 2.5

ish said...

And that's a VERY good ending to the night. Alright! Good night!

nixon33 said...

tomorrow we win.

Jere said...

Really fun day at Fenway.

I'm on a friend's softball team, which is made up of her co-workers: lawyers. They're all nice.

Was a tough sun today, from our seats behind the right fielder. Fucking Piniella.

Just think, if we don't have that "50 years from now" inning yesterday, we're 7.5 up, and the Tigers are 1.5 back of the Yanks. I'll take it how it is, though. Glad you liked my headline from last night, redsock.
