G37: Red Sox 5, Tigers 1

Red Sox - 030 020 000 - 5 13  0
Tigers - 000 100 000 - 1 7 0
A flurry of activity in the second inning -- consecutive singles from Lowell, Drew, Varitek, and Crisp, a wild pitch, a Lugo HBP and an Ellsbury sac fly -- put an early dent in Verlander's evening. Youkilis clocked a two-run dong in the fifth.

Crisp had three singles in four trips, Varitek had two walks and a single, and Ellsbury, Ortiz and Lowell each had two hits.

Beckett (7-6-1-0-8, 102) was excellent, retiring his final 10 batters after the Tigers got on the board. He threw 28 pitches in the fourth, bringing his total to 71. Over the next three innings, he threw 31 (7-11-13), giving the bullpen a breather.

Hansen pitched the eighth: 4-3, 3U, P4. Delcarmen took the ninth: K, 4-3, single, F8.

***

Josh Beckett (4.19, 104 ERA+) / Justin Verlander (6.28, 67 ERA+)

Game thread should be here tonight.

Why didn'y you stay to see Beckett?

Patrick said...

I think they have legitimate reasons to leave, one being that their team sucks.

Amy said...

Nervous to see MDC up with only a 4 run lead....

Joe Grav said...

fantastic....

Any thoughts on Heidi ? She's one hell of a jounalist for

Patrick said...

I heard that Francona wants to keep Lowrie around when Cora gets back. It seems like Hansen would go back to AAA, but I really wish that weren't true.

9casey said...

Joe Grav said...

Joe Grav said...

Sarah Gates said...

Actually, Patrick, I've got one very rational fear - FOX viewers voting.

My dad's a newspaperman, and I grew up revering journalism. I find FOX and their ilk repugnant.

Patrick said...

SoSock said...

Yay!
I thought the water got to lokking a little dirty there toward the end.
News is saying severe lightning and golf ball size hail - in the next community over, about 4 miles and heading our way.
Glad we got our practice in before it came!

I find FOX and their ilk repugnant.
Can I get an "AMEN"!

Patrick said...

If the Jays win, there will be 3 .500 teams tied for second in the East.

SoSock said...

Should have been "looking"

Think I'm out of here. I can see some wicked streaks hitting nearby and the thunder is rattling the windows.
Shutting down the 'puter just to be safe.
Manana

Patrick said...

Joe and Ish have the green light hitting 201 on future threads.

Sarah Gates said...

Good night guys - I'd love to stay up for the rest of this Rays/Jays fun, but I have to be up at 4. Ewww.

ish said...

The water is filthy!!! Well, over an hour ago. Good game all around. Particularly, I liked what I saw with Craig Hansen.

Joe Grav said...
