G57: Rangers 6, Red Sox 3

Rangers - 112 010 100 - 6 12  1
Red Sox - 002 100 000 - 3 4 0
Matsuzaka did not walk a batter, but other than that, it was yet another poor outing: 5-10-5-0-8, 102.

Ten of his 27 batters reached base. Nelson Cruz doubled, tripled and homered, Michael Young singled and homered, and David Murphy singled twice and doubled.

Dice recorded his third 1-2-3 inning of the season, though. He has set down the opposing team in only three of the 26 complete innings he has pitched this year. His other two blemish-free frames were also against the Rangers, back on May 22.

The Red Sox hits: Youkilis's double in the first; Kotsay's single in the third; Kotsay's home run in the fourth; and Ortiz's single in the sixth. In the third, Boston took advantage of a two-base error by Ian Kinsler and three walks from Padilla to score twice.

After Kotsay's solo dong in the fourth, only two Red Sox reached base.

The Yankees scored three times in the eighth to beat Tampa 4-3 and moved back into first place -- by 0.5.

Vicente Padilla (5.57, 82 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (7.17, 67 ERA+)

MLB.com:
Padilla made his first start since May 16 on Tuesday against the Yankees ... [He] allowed seven earned runs [and seven hits, four walks and two hit batters] in just 3.2 innings. ... He had won his final two starts before going on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder. ...

Matsuzaka hasn't pitched six innings in any of his five starts. ...

Nice catch!

redsock said...

don says vizquel is the oldest position player in mlb.

Amy said...

42 does seem old for a position player. That is not the oldest EVER though, right?

redsock said...

i will also accept cruz batting in the 10th.

Amy said...

Three more outs to make good.

s1c said...

Wow, Did Bot just have an OTT inning?

Amy said...

A tenth inning is definitely worth letting Cruz hit for the cycle.

redsock said...

yes - and 9 pitches

redsock said...

sorry - 8 pitches

Amy said...

No save situation, so less stress on Pap?
