G119: Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 1

Red Sox   - 020 120 001 - 6 10  0
Blue Jays - 000 100 000 - 1 6 1
Halladay (5-8-5-2-7, 103) had a tough evening, throwing a lot of pitches -- a total of 72 in the second, third and fourth innings - and not retiring the Red Sox in order in any frame.

David Ortiz and Jason Bay both hit home runs, Jacoby Ellsbury tripled, and Alex Gonzalez singled twice in two trips. Victor Martinez added a solo dong in the ninth off Brandon League.

The Jays did very little against Buchholz (6-6-1-1-4, 94). A walk and a couple of singles resulted in a run in the fourth, and they left the bases loaded in the sixth. A trio of relievers -- Ramon Ramirez, Hideki Okajima and Takashi Saito -- retired nine of the ten batters they faced, allowing only a two-out walk in the seventh.
Example
Clay Buchholz (4.45, 106 ERA+) / Roy Halladay (2.65, 165 ERA+)

Both pitchers worked in the Red Sox's last trip to Toronto. On July 19, Halladay pitched a complete-game 3-1 win (9-6-1-0-7, 105).

Two days earlier, on July 17, Buchholz (5.2-4-1-3-3, 103) was credited with a win in a 4-1 Boston victory.

Non-401 401!

Well the moose dicks had to be detached from the poor mooses. I hear they use hockey skates to do it. OUCH.

Great win tonight, quick work of Cy Doc and solid game from HH.

Also great to meet Allan and Laura (FINALLY!) last night after our nailbiter win. They were sitting by first, I was by third. My seats tomorrow are in the same section they sat in yesterday. Too bad that one didn't work out :(

Thanks a ton again for the ride back to our car at the train station! We owe ya some drinks at the next gathering or something.

Busy day today so no time for threading. Gotta get as much work done today because of trips to the game yesterday and tomorrow. But I was able to catch most of our runs while working. I'm doing a major overhaul of the office in my dad's place. It is ridiculous, some of the crap I've found. But I've found a ton of cool stuff from childhood, including a bunch of stuff my mom wrote when I was in my first couple years.

And I'm gettin' paid! So a decent job for the week.
