G62: Red Sox 5, Rays 1

Rays    - 000 100 000 - 1  8  1
Red Sox - 003 100 10x - 5 11 0
And Boston is back in first place!

Beckett (6-7-1-0-5, 92) worked around some long counts and some difficulty with his curveball in the early innings. He was followed by Manny Delcarmen, Hideki Okajima Craig and Hansen, who combined to allow only one hit and one walk over the final three frames. MDC struck out all three of the Rays he faced.

Tonight's #3 hitter J.D. Drew singled, doubled, walked, scored twice, had one RBI, and stole a base. Kevin Youkilis singled twice, as did Coco Crisp. Coco also walked, brought in a run with a sac fly, and appeared to punch Akinori Iwamura in the groin while trying to steal second in the eighth inning.

Crisp was tagged out and roughly 10 minutes later, during a Rays pitching change, Tampa manager Joe Maddon was yelling some bad words into the Red Sox dugout at Coco.

Hansen in. You got your wish, Joe.

redsock said...

you are clearly young, mr. grav!

ish said...

Weird play, Joe! The teams decided to duke it out and meanwhile Fleury couldn't keep it out of the net.

Weird play! Fleury had it, but then didn't. And it triiiickled in.

Joe Grav said...

ish, that's game.

ish said...

That just might have sealed the deal right there for Detroit.

phil said...

Yeah, Duncan slid into Iwamura.

Joe Grav said...

I guess so, sock. I don't get it

ish said...

And meanwhile we're THIS || close to having some soiled water.

Joe Grav said...

phil said...

FIRST PLACE WATER.

Joe Grav said...

redsock said...

an actress named sandy duncan did commercials for wheat things many years ago.

WATAH!

ish said...

Yeah, Duncan slid into Iwamura.

There seem to be very little respect given to guys' balls in professional sports.

WATER.

redsock said...

Joe Grav said...

i hope you enjoyed first place while it lasted, DEVIL rays.

Patrick said...

WATER! 1st Place!

Joe Grav said...

ish said...

so ........ ococ gettin' one in the ribs tomorrow?

Not sure. I'd recommend everyone on the Red Sox wear cups tomorrow.

phil said...

I hope Coco's wearing his cup tomorrow.

phil said...

Get out of my head.

ish said...

And meanwhile it's time to watch the Red Wings win the Cup.

phil said...

7-5 Twins. Looks like the MFYs will be out of the cellar.

Amy said...

We win, and no one says anything?

Pretty quiet thread tonight.

Amy said...

OK, for some reason the comments didn't appear. Now I see them. Sorry. Thought you all had fallen asleep before the game ended.

ish said...

Watching hockey. Hard to go back and forth with that one. For some reason I still think Pittsburgh's got a bit of a chance...

Joe Grav said...

No way ish. It is over.

ish said...

No way ish. It is over.

Oh I know. I mean, you still wish they could pull out a miracle, but reality is reality.

phil said...

Pittsburgh's scored more goals than any team in playoff history.* It'd be an insult to their fans not to stay in until the end.

*Not really.

Joe Grav said...

SCORE

Joe Grav said...

this is incredible tension.

Joe Grav said...

HOLY SHIT

ish said...

Oh my god! That was SO CLOSE!!!

Joe Grav said...

Amazing fans.

ish said...

INCHES. My goodness.

Joe Grav said...

What a great sport.

ish said...

Damn. No more hockey.

Joe Grav said...

bruins rookie camp in july

ish said...

I like how nobody's left the building.

Joe Grav said...

i wouldnt miss out on a chance to see THE CUP.

ish said...

This is what I love about hockey fans. They boo even now. But also kinda cheer and then chant things. I think they're chanting "Crosby" while Zetterberg holds the MVP trophy.

9casey said...

I found oot in the postgame Coco was retaliating from the sixth inning on that steal attempt Bartlett covered the bag with his leg and Mccarty said you just don't do that so Coco took out Iwamora....Good for Coco

ish said...

And then there are cheers when the Cup is brought out...

Joe Grav said...

the cup looks great in HD

phil said...

McLaren's post-game Carlin routine is hilarious.

ish said...

I love watching all the cameramen bumbling around the ice.

Joe Grav said...

it's sad for fluery that they lost on two soft goals. he was great in this series.

ish said...

it's sad for fluery that they lost on two soft goals. he was great in this series.

Yeah, he really was. That little squeaker for the third goal was such a heartbreaker.

Joe Grav said...

i thought i heard a whistle on that play. guess not.

ish said...

i thought i heard a whistle on that play. guess not.

He had the whistle in his mouth, but never blew it. Instead he saw the puck squeak out of Fleury and put it in his pocket.

9casey said...

They mentioned during the broadcast that was Yook's 22 multi hit game .They have only lost 3 of those games he has multiple hits in.....And the 21 losses he played in and not got hit 14 losses....and they have 25 losses so, 18 losses he didn't get hit or play in those games....I find that very intersesing for some reason....If my math is right...

Jere said...

Allan, you said "wheat thing" up there--that's actually a more fitting name for Shelly, I think. Wheat Thing.

If we win at the same rate we're winning at at home for the rest of the season, and the same rate on the road as we're doing now, we'll end up with exactly 100 wins. Of course, the home percentage is crazy high now, but even if it goes down a lot and the road goes up a little, that'd still be, like, 95 wins.

Jere said...

March '06 on the deflating balls commercial. But I forgive Phil/phrenile for not watching TV 24/7 for the last two years:)

Oh, and speaking of the glass-eyed one*, one of my earliest trips to NYC was as a four-ish year old to see Sandy Duncan in Peter Pan.

*I always heard she had a glass eye, but looked it up just now to find it was a rumor. (By coming across countless sites written by people who did the same thing and wrote about it.)

ish said...

I wonder if that's what happened to Andy's meatballs.
