G10: Red Sox 10, Orioles 8

Orioles - 070 100 000 -  8 11  1
Red Sox - 041 032 00x - 10 12 0
Penny wasn't worth a plugged nickel in the second, throwing 40 pitches, walking three Orioles (including two with the bases loaded) and giving up a grand slam to Nick Markakis.

But the Red Sox rallied. In the home half, they scored four times, two coming on Jason Bay's third dong of the young season. They actually had the tying run at the plate, but Kevin Youkilis grounded out to end the inning.

J.D. Drew hit a solo homer to start the third and Nick Green's two-run double off the wall in dead center brought in two more, tying the game in the fifth. A sac fly from Bay and a single from Mike Lowell gave the Sox their go-ahead runs.

Drew finished the night having reached base five times (three walks, home run, triple) and scoring thrice. Green and Jacoby Ellsbury each had two hits and Dustin Pedroia had three. David Ortiz continued to struggle, hitting a sac fly in the second, striking out three times and popping up to third.

Manny Delcarmen pitched 2.2 scoreless innings, though he did allow an inherited runner to score. Ramon Ramirez came on with two on and two outs in the sixth and retired Ty Wigginton, set down the side in order in the seventh, then wilted in the seventh, allowing two one-out singles. On came Hideki Okajima, who got Markakis to fly to the track in center, then struck out Aubrey Huff. Jonathan Papelbon surrendered a lead-off single in the ninth, but got two first-pitch fly balls to right and then fanned Felix Pie to save it.

***

Jeremy Guthrie (2.25, 227 ERA+) / Brad Penny (4.50, 116 ERA+)

The 3-6 Red Sox are happy to be back at Fenway Park. They begin nine-game home stand (against the Orioles, Twins and Yankees) tonight.

Penny allowed five hits and three runs over six innings against the Angels last Saturday. He has pitched in Fenway Park only once before: June 29, 2003. He allowed nine hits and nine runs in five innings and Boston beat Florida 11-7. That was two days after the infamous 25-8 rout of the Marlins. ... Guthrie threw six shutout innings against the Rays last Saturday.

Jason Bay has reached base in all nine games this year, and in 22 consecutive regular season starts dating back to September 12, 2008.

L-girl said...

Plus I'm 201 AND 401!

andy said...

hey Os blame canada

Amy said...

Laura gets the 401 and the 201

Jere said...

YOu hear those "hey"s? That's section 43. Kazoo Guy. He does that Rock n Roll Part II song on kazoo and wears socks on his ears.

Amy said...

Are Tek's socks higher than usual?

Come on, Doctor!!!

Benjamin said...

Doctor!

L-girl said...

Doctah!!

redsock said...

That's section 43. Kazoo Guy. He does that Rock n Roll Part II song on kazoo and wears socks on his earsNote to self: Never sit in sections 40-46.

Jere said...

L: I said it right away when they said it was boos. If they show people behind the dugout booing him, I'll say Terrible Job by them. I'd never boo Papi.

Amy said...

And you people thought we were out of it when we were down 7-0? Tsk, tsk.

:)

Amy said...

Tek didn't get any lucky breaks that time. Not sure I like those ultra-high socks.

Jere said...

43's the last section. Even from the top of that section you can't even really hear the guy or tell he's playing a kazoo. I finally found out what the hell was going on with him when a blogger interviewed the guy.

redsock said...

I'm trying to think of something as preposterous as Sox fans booing Flo. Having trouble...

... Booing oxygen?

Benjamin said...

You're positive they weren't saying "Yooooook"?

Amy said...

This game is long. Only the top of the 7th and almost three hours. Good thing we are back on the East Coast.

L-girl said...

Jere, I know you said it right away. Your later comments were what I was referring to, though.

* * * *

When it comes to booing, there is nothing anyone could ever say that would justify it to me.

L-girl said...

Benjamin, to me it didn't sound like Yoooooking. It sounded distinctly like booing.

Benjamin said...

Cameraman needs a defibrillator.

redsock said...

Note to self: Have everyone at JoS1 boo Ortiz and see what Laura does.

andy said...

booing the other team is ok right?

L-girl said...

Shut up Allan :)

L-girl said...

Oh shit, of course it's ok to boo the other team. I'm only on about booing your own players.

Amy said...

1 2 3

It sounded like booing to me also. But sometimes they are saying Youk, and I hear boo at first until I realize Youk is coming up to bat. So hard to know for sure, but Remy thought it was booing also, and he is in the park.

Jere said...

Note from my nephew, via my mom who's babysitting him, from when it was 7-0 Baltimore:

"don't worry. I saw a football game once that was 57 to nothing and the nothing team won."

redsock said...

I had only one earphone in, so I could not say for sure.

But I do know for sure that he has been booed before. That is some seriously fucked up shit. Even the usual excuses about booing your stars (frustration, not hatred) make no sense when talking about guys like Tizzle (or Foulke, man that pissed me off something fierce in 05).

redsock said...

Remy, during break: "... is this CVS pharmacy coming back?"

silence

then commercial..

Benjamin said...

Rather nice game for Nick tonight.

Amy said...

Another lucky break for us. Weird.

Jere said...

Green got to first and stopped like a T-ball player who only ran there because they said he'd get a free ice cream.

L-girl said...

Two things I hate:

1. Fans booing their own players, in person.

2. Red Sox fans acting like they're so much better than other fans.

Put the two together, and Allan will have a great time laughing at me.

redsock said...

He might be getting ice cream. This ain't Girardi's Yankees.

L-girl said...

Yay My Boy!

Benjamin said...

LBJ's allowed to get two hits in a game?

Jere said...

There's nobody better than Red Sox fans! Ha!

Amy said...

Is there a shortcut to publish a comment without scrolling to the publish link? (I just learned that I could scroll to the bottom of the page by pressing End, so I am wondering what else I am missing. All these years of pressing the down arrow over and over....)

LBJ! And FY up at bat!

Jere said...

And I really did think Yankee fans booing their own more than anyone else was a widely known fact, but we'll just disagree on this.

L-girl said...

We should win by 7 runs, just for the symmetry.

Ish said...

Hey, everyone. Just got in. What a game! I was listening to it on the radio where Castig appears to be doing most of the game which is abnormal. O'Brien's right there but Joe's calling his innings. Strange.

Anyways, during the comeback in the 5th they talked to Pumpsie Green which was very interesting. Very pleasant man and rather entertaining.

At one point Joe said something that made me crack up: "Varitek's balls have a lot of english tonight!"

Benjamin said...

Please, Papi.

andy said...

Amy we are of one mind. I just today began using End as opposed to the carpal tunnel inducing down arrow jamming.

redsock said...

For years and years and years before 2004, I always said that no one hates their own players more (or at least more intensely when they do hate them) than Red Sox fans.

Amy said...

I will take winning by one run, though a seven run lead would be sweet.

OK, Papi, show those booing assholes a thing or three.

Ish said...

For years and years and years before 2004, I always said that no one hates their own players more (or at least more intensely when they do hate them) than Red Sox fans.And thus the genuine concern for Tim Wakefield after the 2003 LCS right?

L-girl said...

Oh sure, a Jere Widely Known Fact. I know those well.

Benjamin said...

Is there a shortcut to publish a comment without scrolling to the publish link?

Depending on your browser, you may be able to tab+enter.

Kevin said...

This is basically the same situation as last year when he was slumping early. Got a slam and then his BA started going up.

Amy said...

Are you serious, Andy, or just mocking me? I felt SO stupid when I finally figured out that I did not have to keep manually scrolling down. It would be nice to have company.

Benjamin said...

It's painful to watch pitchers challenge Papi and get away with it.

L-girl said...

"Varitek's balls have a lot of english tonight!"

LOL

Kevin said...

"For years and years and years before 2004, I always said that no one hates their own players more (or at least more intensely when they do hate them) than Red Sox fans."

I take it you've never been to a Phillies game?

Ah, snap, K.

Jere said...

Okay L. You're a Red Sox fan from 2003 or before. It's Opening Day 2004. Grady Little has returned as Sox manager and he's announced on the PA and you're in the park. What do you do?

Benjamin said...

Fuck.

Amy said...

That time it sounded like YOUK, not BOO.

SHIT!

Kevin said...

Fuck.

andy said...

Yeah that whole shadenfreude thing is good evidence of jere's point.

Ish said...

Fail.

redsock said...

Slow bat. And fouling off pitches he used to crush.

***

Hate: Nothing is absolute. But there existed such a huger target for hate in that game, I can understand Wake not getting any. (Maybe a few fans hatred Wake.)

L-girl said...

Amy, we told you that shortcut before, but you said it didn't work and you had to scroll. Maybe you updated your browswer or something?

* * * *

squander

Amy said...

Testing the Tab + Enter thing.

Meunier said...

With all the lefties the O's have it should be Oki time now.

Amy said...

Yup. That worked!

Benjamin said...

Please hold the lead, Oki.

redsock said...

Okay L. You're a Red Sox fan from 2003 or before. It's Opening Day 2004. Grady Little has returned as Sox manager and he's announced on the PA and you're in the park. What do you do?Grab my knife and run on the field -- and hope I can fight my way through the other 25,000 knife-wielding fans to get a stab or three in.

Ish said...

Hate: Nothing is absolute. But there existed such a huger target for hate in that game, I can understand Wake not getting any. (Maybe a few fans hatred Wake.)Yeah. Luckily Mr. Gump was the scapegoat in that one.

Benjamin said...

Nope, more Ramirez.

Jere said...

I knew what you would do Allan.

Amy said...

Laura, your memory is SCARY! Yes, I got a new computer in January when the backlight on my screen died. But I have no memory of asking before. So I am both stupid and forgetful!

L-girl said...

If that man had returned as manager, I would not be in the park that day.

I might be in prison for killing John Henry, but I wouldn't be at Fenway.

(I boo'd him in Dodger Stadium!)

Jere said...

ANd L, don't tell me managers don't count!

L-girl said...

I was the only person in Yankee Stadium not booing Chuck Knoblauch one night...

Jere said...

Killing the owner okay, booing Frank Castillo not okay?

redsock said...

I might be in prison for killing John Henry, but I wouldn't be at Fenway.**

JH was the guy who wanted him fired after 2002. And who turned to Werner (?) after Gump walked away from the mound in the 8th and said: "Can we fire him now?"

L-girl said...

He was not a scapegoat! He was GUILTY.

Amy said...

Speaking of Knoblauch, did you all see the tribute that Keith Olbermann did when his mother died? I had not known that she had been hit in the face by an errant Knoblauch throw. It was a very sweet and touching tribute.

Jere said...

Knoblauch: There's a good example of why fans should be allowed to boo their own. When it's justified only though.

redsock said...

Rammy getting tired?

Jere said...

I saw the Olberman thing--as someone who knew about the Knoblauch thing, I knew exactly where he was goin' with it. It was good.

L-girl said...

"JH was the guy who wanted him fired after 2002. And who turned to Werner (?) after Gump walked away from the mound in the 8th and said: "Can we fire him now?""

Re JH, of course I know that. That's why I can threaten his life retroactively. Because I'm joking.

redsock said...

NOW HIS MASK IS OFF!!!!

Ish said...

He was not a scapegoat! He was GUILTY. • Yes but in a situation like that someone would have been blamed even if Gump didn't do anything wrong. Saying that does sound weird. Doesn't sound possible.

But you're right. Guilty is the better word.

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

Amy said...

Uh oh.

Jere said...

key keeping them on 1st and 2nd. Goddamn I still wish we could've scored at least ONE with loaded/no out. Boooooooooooo

L-girl said...

Yes Jere, I'm saying that murder is ok but booing is not. Uh-huh.

Amy said...

Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxD5OFRDK4g

Amy said...

Oh well, that didn't work

redsock said...

a dp would give create some english in my pants.

Jere said...

I'd like to play Laura in that hockey arcade game under that big plastic dome. I'd be on that boo button all game long! haha

Ish said...

LOL @ Redsock. Mine too.

redsock said...

when we're at fenway, can you imagine what will happen if someone nearby boos ortiz?

that'll be some fun.

redsock said...

A's 8, Jays 5

Kevin said...

Alright Oki, enough dancing around, throw a pitch.

Amy said...

Here

L-girl said...

Olbermann was just a sports guy then, he didn't have the political gig. It was such a bizarre and hilarious coincidence that that's who the ball hit.

Meunier said...

Wow, I didn't know N.M. had such all pro-stats.

Jere said...

If JE had been deking, Jones woulda been screwed.

Amy said...

Two away, Oki, just get this one out. PLEASE.

Jere said...

WHy does Pap look even weirder than everyone else in that hat???

L-girl said...

Nice link Amy!

Shut up Allan!

redsock said...

shut up, me?

i meant i might get ejected.

Jere said...

K! We're 3 away

Amy said...

YES!!

redsock said...

is that a scone in your pocket or did jeemer just get out of that jam?

Grant Salzano said...

WOO!

Kevin said...

Gotta love that splitter/changeup/forkball/whatever the hell it is.

L-girl said...

I was laughing when I said it. I thought you were just enjoying seeing me riled up.

As you are known to do.

Ish said...

A scone? Aren't we the optimist.

redsock said...

A win will let us pick up a game on the Jays!

L-girl said...

"is that a scone in your pocket or did jeemer just get out of that jam?"

LOL

just rolls off the tongue, too

redsock said...

HEY!

scone -- jam

get it?

Amy said...

Thanks, Laura. It only took a few tries.

redsock said...

ON BASE MACHINE!

Amy said...

Drew had three walks, but no cycle.

Jere said...

boooooo silence

Amy said...

Ready for Papelbon.

Jere said...

Lowell, run it out, it's the Orioles

Jere said...

Oh this is horseshit. They show some poor kid and say he only "likes" the Red Sox while the drunken college dancing fans "really love" the Red Sox for some stupid ad. In fact, it's the same thing as that commercial which I commented on a few days ago--the one that says dancing people are the best fans. So dumb.

L-girl said...

How can you tell if Lowell runs it out or not?

L-girl said...

dancing fans > booing fans

Meunier said...

Broken glove?

L-girl said...

ok, one down

Amy said...

That was a manipulative, obnoxious ad. I agree, Jere.

L-girl said...

and two

Amy said...

Phew, that one had me worried.

redsock said...

whew - fuck zauny bench.

Kevin said...

B2B 1 pitch outs, nice.

L-girl said...

the ad is definitely gross

Jere said...

I feel like DOn had to have felt bad about being forced to make fun of that kid.

redsock said...

Has Pie done any dessert commercials?

Jere said...

That last fly ball may have been a dong at YS.

Amy said...

Pie = Pee-ay? What language is that?

One more out.

redsock said...

He's trying to be all Pooootz with his name.

It's PIE! Like America! PIE!

Jere said...

"good bye Pie" yells one fan

redsock said...

Pie, after HBP: "You wanna a piece of me?"

Jere said...

should be Good Beeyay Pie

Amy said...

You mean it really is pronounced PIE and Don is turning it into something French or something??

Amy said...

One more strike.

Kevin said...

Water.

Jere said...

dirty pie filling

Benjamin said...

Water!

Ish said...

Dirty Water and Pap's making english in HIS pants!

L-girl said...

And three!

Great comeback, great win. One big fat I TOLD YOU SO to all you fuckers! :)

Benjamin said...

Felix Pie is from the Dominican Republic.

Amy said...

YES!! They win! They overcome a 7 run deficit and we look like fools for doubting them (except Laura).

redsock said...

No, I'm being silly.

L-girl said...

"You wanna a piece of me?"

HA HA

L-girl said...

The guy is still on the All Food Team.

redsock said...

Bot gettin' his pie on!

Benjamin said...

Jim Ed changed out of his Cosby sweater during the game.

L-girl said...

G'night all, see you soooooooon.

(Were those boos, or was she just saying see you soon????)

Jere said...

Uh, Amy....I never gave up either.

Pepe Lepew said...

Wow! What a win!
This is where we turn the season around. I can feel it!

Amy said...

Good game, all. The first one I have been able to watch and thread through the entire nine innings. And I learned a few short cuts and remembered how to do italics and links. AND THE RED SOX WON!

An all round good evening.

Benjamin said...

YES!! They win! They overcome a 7 run deficit and we look like fools for doubting them (except Laura).

Eh. The Os had already given up two 10-run games this season, so it was definitely possible.

Benjamin said...

By which I mean three 10+ run games.

Amy said...

Jere, you were obsessing about the uniforms so I didn't notice what you were saying about the game. Didn't mean to lump you in with all us negative types.

Benjamin said...

And another 9-run game.

andy said...

massive cum production

Benjamin said...

Basically the Os have given up a lot of runs.

Jere said...

"Didn't mean to lump you in with all us negative types."

It's ok--just so you know, I'm one of the 'never give up' guys. Ask Nix, ha.

(The first time I e-met him I got pissed at him for saying a game was over before it was or something. But we's best o' buddies now.)

SoSock said...

Hey hey hey!
Looks a good night.
Just gt in from temple where I got to meet Bill Jonas, who perfomed during service tonight.
(NO!, he's NOT one of the Jonas brothers)
During services my phone buzzed and when I checked it during not-so-reverent part of the proceeding there was picture from the inside of Citi Park with a message from my son saying "wish you were here".
The dog - he got to see Gary Sheffield hit his 500th home run!

Amy said...

Shabbat shalom, SoSock. That's a great story about your son. Is he a Mets fan? How old is he? Does he live in NY?

SoSock said...

Oh no - Red Sox all the way!
Grew up with me , ya know.
He's just working in NY this week and apparently got a chance and took advantage. His job tkes him all over. I get those kinds of messages every so often.
So he says this was game 2 in the new park. True? I thought this was the second series there. Wasn't Jere at a game earlier, or was that the exhibition?

SoSock said...

By the way - any of you with kids should check out Biily Jonas if you never have.
Kids music that adults can get into as well. He's a "repercussionist". Interactive music that features found item percussion and incredibly intelligent lyrics that any kid of any age can appreciate.

Benjamin said...

"Benjamin said...

At least with these Orioles, no lead is safe."

8:12 pm. Just saying.

nick said...

One big fat I TOLD YOU SO to all you fuckers! :)Word!

Fun game and thread to review. Woulda liked to been 'round. Some classic quotes in this thread. emma and I GameDayed it to see 'em tie it up, after looking at photos of camelback mountain on the google.

I said 4th, Laura 6th. I like the average.

redsock said...

Damn. Just realized I posted this in the New Eng. blog post:
