G150: Yankees 4, Red Sox 3

Yankees - 000 010 030 - 4  7  1
Red Sox - 100 000 011 - 3 5 0
The seven-batter rally against a shaky Rivera falls short, as Tiz pops to Jeter in short center with the bases loaded. And CI's three-run homer into the Monster Seats off Schilling -- who maybe should have been pulled a few batters earlier -- is the difference.

The Sox blew an excellent chance at scoring off Joba in the seventh. Hisnke doubled and was bunted to third. But Lugo fanned and Ellsbury grounded to first. The Doctor doubled his pleasure and homered in the eighth, finally tagging an earned run on JtC's ERA.

***

The Tigers won this afternoon 6-4, as the Twins left the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Detroit is now only 2 GB the Yankees for the wild card spot.

***

Roger Clemens (4.45, 98 ERA+) / Curt Schilling (3.93, 116 ERA+)

If the Yankees want to entertain even a slim hope of winning the East, Fat Billy has to come through. More importantly, his team's wild card lead has been cut to 2.5 games (the Tigers play the Twins at 2 PM). And we know he's always done so well under pressure.

So while Wimpy Clemens promises to pay us Tuesday for a hamburger today


Schilling will rely on the breakfast of champions:


Steamed.

Hi, Sarah. I will take a post season clutch hit for Tek, but I don't know if I can wait that long. I am getting impatient.

ish said...

DeSalvo, JtC warming in the bullpen.

nixon33 said...

get the cunt in there so we can introduce him to fenway.

Sir Jahmez said...

DRINK!

redsock said...

'bout time torre gets jtc up in this series.

Sarah Gates said...

Amy, I'm not saying he might not do it today, just that after this string, he's going to come through in a big damn way when we least expect it.

Of course, I'm incapable of being mad at Tek. Love the man. Even when he's an automatic out.

Amy said...

Yeah, I heard all that Joba Jabber when I first turned on the TV. So annoying.

3 up, 3 down. Schilling deserves some runs.

bennymac said...

schill's pitching like it's already the postseason. let's hope he can keep it up.

redsock said...

Joba The Cunt

redsock said...

torre wisely quitting while he's ahead with the fat man.

Amy said...

Sarah, Glad to know I am not alone. He has long been my favorite, but these last few games he has worn me down. Always swinging at bad pitches with two outs and MOB. But I am giving him time to redeem himself. It would be sweet if it were tonight.

nixon33 said...

great pitching by schill. goddamn.

s1c said...

three hits allowed through seven innings for G38 another good start for G38. The rest did him good, but the bats need to start getting him some runs.

redsock said...

jtc facing the bottom third

ish said...

See, I think Beckett was calling Joba a cock. You fucking cock.

But that's just the way I saw it.

SoSock said...

Schilling really is pitching like his old self tonight. He deserves some serious credit, and even more, some RUNS!

ish said...

Ya know what? Nevermind, you're right.

bennymac said...

time to give JtC an era.

L-girl said...

He's totally saying cock. That's what we all thought when we first saw it. Somewhere along the line, it migrated to the other gender.

nixon33 said...

i hate the cunt

Amy said...

Let's knock this guy (thus, I agree with Ish--cock) around.

Sarah Gates said...

Let's eat some Pizza-the-Hut for dinner, shall we?

bennymac said...

yes sir!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU! THE CUNT!

s1c said...

HINSKE!!!!!!!

Amy said...

YES! Let's prove him FALLIBLE. I love it.

L-girl said...

HINSKE!!!! Here we go!

redsock said...

eric the red.

ish said...

HAHAHAHA!!! A fan runs onto the field... Okay, that's stupid.

But he took Cano's cap right from his head. THAT's funny!

We need to quickly start a Joba chant.

Jahhhhhbaaaaa
Jahhhhhbaaaaa
Jahhhhhbaaaaa

L-girl said...

did someone run on the field and take cano's cap???

(allan, remind you of anything?)

nixon33 said...

what the fuck just happend with cano?

s1c said...

I see a yankee fan has escaped the asylum!

Sarah Gates said...

Love a good pinball in the corner there...

Amy said...

Yes, apparently a fan stole his cap.

Sir Jahmez said...

"Joshua Chamberlain isn't used to being in a situation like this" - Jon Miller - Yeah playing in Fenway's a bitch sometimes...

L-girl said...

nice work, ococ

bennymac said...

can i use dong and cunt in the same sentence? i'm going for it: it would be great to see a two run dong off joba the cunt!

Amy said...

90 feet away. Let's get at least a long fly ball. Let's move ahead here.

David said...

Fenway needs to get LOUD. Get all over this guy.

SoSock said...

WOW !
Did a Red Sox player just execute a bunt correctly?!

nick said...

how come with all the camera folks they've got they cant find one to cover a guy running on the field and stealing the 2nd baseman's fucking cap.

redsock said...

MLB TV fucking up.

NOT NOW

s1c said...

how come with all the camera folks they've got they cant find one to cover a guy running on the field and stealing the 2nd baseman's fucking cap.

They don't show it anymore, don't want copy cats.

redsock said...

dent this fucker's ERA -- lugo

nixon33 said...

fuuck, lugo struck out.

Amy said...

Damn. Well, LBJ can again be the hero. Are you ready, Laura?

L-girl said...

they never show fans on field on tv - that goes way back. it's never ever done.

bennymac said...

can i use dong and cunt in the same sentence?


i think it's a must! i'm surprised it took us this long. well done.

s1c said...

UP to LBJ now!!!

redsock said...

morgan in full joba ball-washing mode.

nick said...

l-girl said:
They don't show it anymore, don't want copy cats.


fair enough--and somewhere in my memory I remember that, but it still seems all too often they're slow to react to offbeat events on the field.

and damn! they're going at LBJ.

L-girl said...

amy, i'm always ready for him :)

L-girl said...

l-girl said:
They don't show it anymore, don't want copy cats.


I did not say that.

nixon33 said...

fucking cunt.

Amy said...

Damn, a wasted lead off double. How did we do that?

s1c said...

Why, why did ocoC bunt? Fragging Francona.

Amy said...

I mean single.

nixon33 said...

fucking motherfucking fuck.

bennymac said...

damn it.

went to a phillies/brewers game earlier this year. a fully naked man ran dropped out of the left field seats onto the field and it took them like a minute to catch him. i'm not particularly a fan of seeing naked men, but this was the highlight of the game...by far.

redsock said...

i'm actually okay with the bunt at this point, 7th inning, 1-1 game.

...

my first game at the toilet (an early date with L!) was the one where rice went into the stands to get the fan who stole his cap. sept 1986. i was out on the beer line though and missed the whole encounter.

Sir Jahmez said...

Yeah those are def man hands on the edge ad.

bennymac said...

yeah...even if ococ grounded out the runner may have gotten to third.

ish said...

I support Coco bunting. I don't support Lugo striking out.

ish said...

That was Schilling's 70th pitch right there. Here's 71.

nick said...

sure you did--as s1c. I have trouble with name even when they're printed right in front of me. sorry 'bout that.

Sir Jahmez said...

Do you think the suicide squeeze would have worked with Lugo up and Hinske on 3rd?

SoSock said...

Why, why did ocoC bunt? Fragging Francona.
It's what I'd have done, even tho it's not Billy Ball correct. Late in game, tie score, you just have to count on Lugo to make contact, and he didn't.

Amy said...

Schilling still in. Outlasted Roger. Good for him.

redsock said...

lopez and mdc up

L-girl said...

nick, no problem, i agreed with it anyway

Sarah Gates said...

KKurt!

Amy said...

Mient..whatever...two hits. Just how many former Red Sox are on this team?

redsock said...

i was at a mfy game (orioles?) sitting with a friend out in LF and this guy was standing up, doing this whole pretend strip tease (for like an entire inning), he finally yanked down his pants for some full frontal and the cuffs were on him likethat!

pretty funny.

redsock said...

gameday has schilling's first pitch to hgh at 49 mph.

L-girl said...

Allan, I was expecting the Jim Rice cap game, I forgot you were treated to a full monty at YS.

David said...

MFY's going to lose the dh?

s1c said...

Posada has the gear on. Yankees pull the DH, ISH you get your wish a pitcher batting.

redsock said...

rice story right after benny's naked man story above.

nixon33 said...

FUCK!

s1c said...

Fragging HGH. What happened on the throw?

L-girl said...

oops, you did the jim rice cap thing already. our first time ball game together! crazy night.

L-girl said...

damn!

Amy said...

Shit. At least no one scored. So tired of Yankee fawning by ESPN. Though they do like LBJ's fielding.

s1c said...

Damon, thx you rotton sob

redsock said...

joe pulling a jimy williams, but seemingly on purpose.

(fuck yeah on damon)


morgan insisting torre told him they have 4 catchers on the team.

Andy said...

lumberjack

SoSock said...

Good Job!!

Amy said...

Don't give Jeter anything to hit. Please.

nixon33 said...

WHERE THE FUCK ARE THESE PITCHES!?!?!?!?!

redsock said...

miller: "jeter is the best in the game in these situations, with runners on base"

they keep track of that shit, jon, he is not. stop being a tool. call him good and stick to the facts.

SoSock said...

Holy Shit !
I just heard an announcer give Schilling some credit !!!

redsock said...

we will see lopez for abreu right?

get him now curt.

redsock said...

odd, miller and morgan said nothing when molina went out to chat with fatman

Amy said...

Let's get this K. My heart is pounding. I hate this tension. FUCK

Sarah Gates said...

Oh hell.

L-girl said...

fuck

better mute, y'all

Amy said...

Why does Miller have to sound SO HAPPY? I hate him. How can you like him, Laura??

nick said...

may I simply add a FUCK!

ish said...

Well screw me sideways.

redsock said...

heck of a job, brownie.

L-girl said...

amy, wtf. i didn't make the call.

Amy said...

Who's brownie, Redsock?

Joe Grav said...

FUCKIN HELL

Jeter.... gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

L-girl said...

he's a national announcer, he's not going to sound like remy & orsillo. if ortiz hit one, he'd sound the same way.

redsock said...

so ... slow hook on curt?

pull him after the 2 hits and have lopez for damon and mdc for ci?

Amy said...

Laura, I thought you said above you liked Miller, no?

Bray said...

that inning right there? a nice primer the differences of managing inside and outside the box .

SoSock said...

NOT Good.
I'm with Nixon, It shouldn't have been a hitter's count. At least 1 of those 1st 2 was a strike.
I think I just heard Parker Thomas (now almost 4 hours old) say -
Fucking Jeter!

redsock said...

Brownie = Horse show judge that ran FEMA for Bush. It's a famous Shithead quote after Katrina.

nixon33 said...

what a tease.

ish said...

pull him after the 2 hits and have lopez for damon and mdc for ci?

I would have rather seen MDC to get Jeter, but man. Schill made a couple of real good pitches, and he also got that borderline pitch called against him.

It would have been high drama with MDC also... could have been the same result. I'm not going to question Francona on this one.

Sarah Gates said...

Dear TWC,

If it's really crucial that you screw up my cable during the game, could you at least do it right BEFORE that all-too-tangible dong? I didn't really want to see that.

Could I please have the game back now?

s1c said...

Give me a fragging break. These guys suck tonight with the bat and now schilling gives up a three run job.

And miller and Morgan having orgasms over jeter. If i wanted fawning over CI I'd watch this game at the in-laws.

Fragging Sox.

L-girl said...

i like them enough. i have no major problem with the sunday night espn team.

his HR call was not any different than any other national announcer in a situation like that.

my "wtf" was for "laura, how could you like him". i just do, it's no big deal.

Amy said...

"he's a national announcer, he's not going to sound like remy & orsillo. if ortiz hit one, he'd sound the same way."

Well, I will listen when Ortiz does in the next inning. :) Perhaps I just have biased ears. (My husband says I do; he thinks they are all pro-Red Sox. All in the ears of the beholder, I supppose.)

redsock said...

Anyone up for a little HBP action with MDC and Slappy? I am.

ish said...

THIS ONE IS NOT OVER.

Red Sox and Yankees at Fenway. NOT OVER.

Don't hang your hats yet.

(Just, throwing that little bit out there)

Bray said...

i think lopez should have been brought in for giambi.
one switch for another.

Amy said...

Ohhh, that Brownie! I didn't see it in the glossary, and I wasn't thinking out of the JOS universe!

Bray said...

not over. just annoying.

ish said...

Visciano warming.

Looks like a good victim to me.

redsock said...

i can tell -- pre-2004, i would have spent like 5,000 words on, ripping tito.

... not over. never over.

Amy said...

At least we K'd A-Rod.

Bray said...

slappy showing his fall colors.

ish said...

Pedroia, it is crucial that you get this thing started. Get on any way you can. We need baserunners.

redsock said...

alright, we got:

fuck yeah
flo
dr. d
ON FIRE
varitef

redsock said...

dumbo in as catcher

jtc now batting 9th.

ish said...

jtc now batting 9th.

Too bad he won't actually bat. :) It'd be beanballin' time.

Colin said...

Damn...oh well. Even if we lose we denied them a sweep and the Pats are shaming the Chargers.

Let's hope Baltimore continues to be the thorn in the Yankee side that they usually are.

L-girl said...

please note joe morgan's vote for FUCK YEAH for ROY

guess we all better change our votes!

Amy said...

OK, Morgan thinks Pedroia should be Rookie of the Year. So maybe not complete Yankee bias.

redsock said...

fuuuuuuuck -- you can't hit a pitch like that. can't.

nixon33 said...

great. this fucking sucks........sucks!

SoSock said...

I HATE it when we make Joba look good.

ish said...

DOCTOR DONG ACTION.

Sarah Gates said...

I'm counting on you guys to keep me posted on our comeback. The cable just died and my computer crashes everytime I try to run stinking gameday.

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU JOBA

ish said...

WAKE UP PEOPLE!

L-girl said...

there's our doctor!!!! do we love this man????

s1c said...

4-2 time for J.D. to do the same.

Amy said...

Sorry, I just didn't hear as much excitement there for Lowell as I did for Jeter. First comment, that it was only one run.

redsock said...

DOCTOR DONG!!!

SoSock said...

Take THAT Mr. "No earned runs in my career"!!

Bray said...

mike lowell=gold
there goes the 0.0 era.

redsock said...

fuck your cunty ERA.

Amy said...

Again, Miller...only one run, and the "great" Rivera coming in next. No bias? Is it just me?

L-girl said...

amy, give it a rest, eh?

Amy said...

Ok, I am done. Just the damn lawyer in me. Sorry.

David said...

amy, because it was only one run. didn't tie the game or put us in the lead. not as big of an impact as a 3 run, 2 out hr to take the lead.

s1c said...

This ump is just pissing me off, no way that was a strike.

redsock said...

Amy, I agree with you.

L-girl said...

no need to apologize. not the lawyer in you, the red sox fan in you. everyone's against us. even when they're not.

redsock said...

And feel free to complain at length about it!

(gagne in)

nixon33 said...

too bad we blew that first game.

ish said...

Cap, Hinske, and oCoC in the bottom of the 9th.

Amy said...

Nah, I will now just complain about the Yankees themselves. Displaced anger on my part. Just mad in general about the score.

L-girl said...

what david said.

if ortiz had done what jeter did, morgan would have flipped too.

redsock said...

amy, because it was only one run. didn't tie the game or put us in the lead. not as big of an impact as a 3 run, 2 out hr to take the lead.

this is also true.

some soxy things still grate on laura. she hasn't flushed all the toxins out of her system yet!

ish said...

Gagné: 70 mph curve. 95 mph heat.

redsock said...

Cap, Hinske, and oCoC in the bottom of the 9th

so we start a one-out rally.

L-girl said...

for me the worst part - IF we don't come back - is that the tigers won.

we're definitely making the playoffs, but if we want a yankeeless october, the yankees need to lose on the days the tigers win.

redsock said...

But bitching about the media is often the biggest thing on the blog.

ish said...

I've got some faith in the Captain. Enough not to count him as an automatic out. Not yet.

Amy said...

Yes, that is really why I am so mad. I just hate these nights when my house is like a civil war. I don't want the Yankees in the post season for all the usual reasons, but also for the sake of peace in my house.

westcoastsox said...

Had the game on at the burger joint. Left when it was 1-1, going into top of the 8th. By the time got home, yikes. Not over yet, though, even with the "great Rivera" coming in. I seem to recall winning a couple against him?

L-girl said...

some soxy things still grate on laura.

exactly. having lived on both sides of the divide, i have a more objective eye.

and i hate all the fucking whining!

nixon33 said...

fuck man. schill was one strike away. ugh

redsock said...

gameday has three highlights from this game you can click on to see: all 3 of them are yankee highlights.

Amy said...

You two are pretty funny. Rooting for the SAME team and still taking a different side of things here. I think I will stay out of it! I have enough problems here in my house.

Amy said...

Gagne did well. That's a good sign.

ish said...

Okay guys....

It's just a cutter... Hit that mofo!

L-girl said...

all sox fans do not see everything the exact same way...

this is not a serious argument. i should hope that much is clear.

redsock said...

so jason -- THIS is when we need you to get on base. NOW.

ish said...

It starts with you, Captain.

Bray said...

do. not. swing. at. high. crap.
say it with us!

redsock said...

let's do what we do to the fruitbat.

David said...

on a positive note, i think arod is 1 for 11 this weekend.

L-girl said...

time to earn that C...

Amy said...

"this is not a serious argument. i should hope that much is clear."

Of course.

(Notice I have given up on the HTML tags...afraid of starting another case if Italic-itis like Dietcokegirl did. Plus I type too slowly.)

Amy said...

NOW is when I want that hit from Jason.

L-girl said...

no sasahe... no sasahe... no sasahe... not much of a chant

Amy said...

DON'T SWING.

L-girl said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!

ish said...

CAPTAIN EYES.

okay now... HINSKE!! You're up!

Amy said...

YES, he finally didn't swing. He listened to me.

redsock said...

tek lays off the high stuff.

fucking a alright

SoSock said...

NICE AB TEK !!
It's a start :)

ish said...

COME ON OCOC!!!!

L-girl said...

ok, not a dp, we're still in it

Amy said...

Will LBJ once again get a chance to be the hero?

L-girl said...

OC OC OC OC OC OC

redsock said...

we need something extra very crispy!

ish said...

Come on, oCoC. It's just a cutter. Anticipate the movement.

Bray said...

pinch run someone for tek.

L-girl said...

I'd feel better if Manny were here. Lyndon doesn't have a lot of experience to face Mo.

Amy said...

Up to Lugo to keep it going. If Tek can get on base, why not Lugo?

ish said...

Lyndon didn't have experience against anyone else, either.

Bray said...

and then there was julio.

redsock said...

a lugo dong?

why the f not?

L-girl said...

yes yes, i'm not saying he can't do it. it's just a lot of pressure for a kid. but we have to get to him first.

Amy said...

YES!!
