G128: Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 5

Blue Jays - 020 020 000 - 5 10  0
Red Sox - 000 320 01x - 6 10 0
Johnathan Papelbon loads the bases with one out in the ninth, but strikes out the next two batters for the save.

The winning pitcher (Okajima, 3 pitches) and losing pitcher (Brian Tallet, 7 pitches) each faced only one batter. Jeemer got the last out in the eighth once play had resumed and Tallet walked Ortiz to start the Boston eighth.

The Sox went ahead on Casey Kotchman's fielder's choice -- after David Ortiz had walked, Drew doubled and Varitek was intentionally walked. Kotchman's hot shot was to the right of Lyle Overbay at first base; it rolled away from him and his only play was to second base for the force, as Flo scored.

The Yankees beat the White Sox 5-2 in 10 innings and the Twins held on to beat the Rangers 3-2, so Boston remains 6 GB in the East, but is now 2.5 GA of Texas in the Wild Card.
Example
11:01 PM: Game is back on, after a 49-minute delay. And Okajima strands the runner.

10:12 PM: Rain delay with two outs in the top of the eighth and a runner at third base.

Beckett (5-5-5-5-9, 108) did not have it for the third consecutive start, throwing 80 pitches in the first three innings. He allowed a three-run homer to Aaron Hill and a two-run dong to Rod Barajas.

Boston got five hits in the fourth and RBIs from J.D. Drew, Jason Varitek and Jacoby Ellsbury. Jason Bay tied the game in the fifth with his 29th home run.
Example
Scott Richmond (4.09, 107 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.65, 130 ERA+)

13.1 innings, 18 hits, 15 runs (including eight dongs).

That's the damage done to Beckett in his last two outings by the Blue Jays (August 18) and Yankees (August 23). It came as a bit of a shock, as in 16 starts before those outings, Beckett had a 1.93 ERA over 116.1 innings. John Farrell insists there is nothing physically wrong.

Jacoby Ellsbury hopes to play tonight after suffering a left high-ankle sprain last night. Francona was "hopeful" LBJ could play and said the injury didn't seem to be "anything more than a nagging thing".

The other games in this series:
Saturday, 7 PM: Ricky Romero/Clay Buchholz
Sunday, 1:30 PM: Roy Halladay/Jon Lester
On The Big Board: White Sox/Yankees (Buehrle/Sabathia) at 7 and Rangers/Twins at 8.

Saito you gascan..

last 7 games = 0 runs

24 batters
2 hits
2 walks
8 K


And no runs tonight. Yet, at least.

L-girl said...

Whew, thank you!

Iridescence said...

Big K for Saito!

Kevin said...

Alright, through that inning

Score runs

redsock said...

Since July 11, Saito has a 1.17 ERA (2 runs in 15.1 innings).

I shit on him, too, but he has been solid for the last month +.

A Conformer said...

RSVP

L-girl said...

You know what would be really cool? The Red Sox could score some runs, and then not allow any more runs. Gosh that would be neato.

redsock said...

But that is against the rules, right?

L-girl said...

First impressions are hard to shake.

Remember the other day we were talking about guys who have a good Sept or October and the fans love him for years and years? This is the opposite syndrome. We all have the impression Saito sucks, even though he hasn't sucked in a while.

L-girl said...

But that is against the rules, right?

For this game, yes, I believe so.

L-girl said...

Let's go Shakespeare

redsock said...

GDGD alert:

"Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Marco Scutaro left the game due to an injured head."

Kevin said...

I've really like Saito this season. My only complaint is that he can't strand inherited runners for shit. (8 of 12 have scored)

L-girl said...

Shutting the laptop for the night. Go Dirty Water!

meuniermr said...

160.9 KPH pitch from Bard

tim said...

Just got in to Kitchener from Hamilton.

Jesus christ, what is it with us and throwing at their heads?

A Conformer said...

I like Bard's beard. I want mine back.

tim said...

Dog bless the mute button.

Kevin said...

Alright

Time for some more runs

A Conformer said...

Barajas checking his bat to see if there are any cheese stains on it.

meuniermr said...

"Take me Out to the Ballgame Presented by Coca-Cola"???
WTF give me a break, they don't even do that in minors.

Benjamin said...

Why the showtunes at Fenway?

Iridescence said...

I do not want to hear people singing anything when I'm listening to the game on the radio, it might be entertaining at the stadium, over the radio, not so much.

A Conformer said...

I must say, that was a very uninspiring rendition. She was mailing it in.

Do they do FGBA every game now in Fenway?

A Conformer said...

MFY into extras. 2-2.

tim said...

cancer patients? wow they're really pulling out all the stops to get to their 5 mil goal.

tim said...

I'm surprised the Planters Peanut Co or the Cracker Jack Corp of America doesn't sponsor TMOTTBG.

redsock said...

CWS: 000 000 200
MFY: 101 000 000

TEX: 000 001 0
MIN: 300 000

tim said...

Come on V-Mart, crush a dong here so we don't have to suspend this fucker.

tim said...

Ugh. Who needs the Vick-E-Mart? Not me.

tim said...

Eww, the wave

redsock said...

the wave

come on, fenway fans, have some self-respect

A Conformer said...

The wave during rain. Hmmm...

redsock said...

these innings are suddenly hi-lev.
any sign of wagner?

redsock said...

snider walks and avoids the golden shower

redsock said...

Rays lose.

redsock said...

OUT!

snider runs into a big cactus!

Patrick said...

Fuck Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

meuniermr said...

WOOOO out at home. But the tarp is called for..

tim said...

PRICKED BY THE CACTUS!!!!!

WHEEEEEEEEEE

FUCK rain....this is gonna be suspended

Kevin said...

Alright, that's not the way I prefer to get outs, but I'll take it

Kevin said...

Bay's 13th outfield assist of the season

A Conformer said...

Good play by Tek, but also a really bad slide by Snider.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Manny batting with bases loaded, two outs.

meuniermr said...

Suspended game for sure looking at the radar.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Struck him out looking.

meuniermr said...

The Jays do have a visit left to Fenway, so look for a 1.2 header on Sunday.

9casey said...

A Conformer said...
Good play by Tek, but also a really bad slide by Snider.



How was that slide bad? That was just a great play, not to many catchers make that play....

tim said...

They're going to suspend it and play it out tomorrow, I would assume (since tomorrow's game is a 7 pm start) - weather permitting, of course.

It wasn't a bad slide either, it looked like he tried to sneak his leg in between Varitek's legs to touch the plate.

tim said...

Fuckin' asshole Danny. Get out of Fenway!

Iridescence said...

Not sure how much we even care anymore but the Rays lost.

A Conformer said...

How was that slide bad? That was just a great play, not to many catchers make that play....

I guess I would just expect him to be able to elude Tek's leg and tag up after "overruning" the bag. He was just thrown aside and lay there for Tek to tag him. I could definitely be wrong...

Kevin said...

Fucking Cano walk-off dong in the Toilet

Iridescence said...

fucking Cano indecent exposure. MFY win

redsock said...

CWS: 000 000 200 0 - 2 8 1
MFY: 101 000 000 3 - 5 10 0

TEX: 000 001 00
MIN: 300 000 0

Iridescence said...

Indecent exposure - when a player or team I don't like "shows his dong" :)

tim said...

That is one ug-lee motherfucker.

A Conformer said...

Fucking White Sox.

I wonder how the Rays' players will take a trade of Kazmir. Management trading a starter when you're 3.5 games out will be seen as punting, and probably wouldn't be appreciated.

redsock said...

Maybe they will dye their hair yet another colour in protest.

9casey said...

Iridescence said...
Not sure how much we even care anymore but the Rays lost.




We still have 6 left with them and they have been pretty good against us...so I care........

9casey said...

A Conformer said...

That injury he had must be a lot worse than talked about , how does he clear all the way to the Angels...odd.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Rangers lose 3-2. They left two on in the top of the ninth.

tim said...

Also would like to point out that had that been Lugo/Green/Lowrie on the super quick relay by Seabass, I think we would've been the losers right about now.

Ish said...

Game's coming back on at 11.

Kevin said...

"Also would like to point out that had that been Lugo/Green/Lowrie on the super quick relay by Seabass, I think we would've been the losers right about now."

Lugo wouldn't have caught the ball, Lowrie would have injured himself, and Green would have thrown it over the backstop.

redsock said...

GLOBE:
Game to resume at 11.
The tarp is up and the grounds crew is whipping the field into shape.

redsock said...

GDGD has video of the 7-6-2 out.

Kevin said...

Jeemer gets us out of the inning.

Runs. Score them.

redsock said...

Jeemer in and a fly to short RF.

tiz
bay
drew

Patrick said...

Oki came through.

Patrick said...

Come on set my night on fire!

tim said...

Thank the america blesser I checked this thread. I wrote this game off.

tim said...

tim said...

Ah, the good ol' late night crowd being more audible for some reason. Less people?

tim said...

Fuck these "fans"

Benjamin said...

Lots of empty seats now. That's sad.

Patrick said...

leadoff walks always score!

Kevin said...

I'd like some more Thunder right now

redsock said...

you're thinking too much, cito!

redsock said...

snuffer up

tim said...

we better not see wagner.

and by that i mean, a win in 8.5 innings.

Patrick said...

Fire time. This pitchers gonna get burnt.

tim said...

Alright drew.

As Patrick said.

tim said...

I was referring to the 11:03 "Come on set my night on fire!" comment...

Patrick said...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

tim said...

Thank you.

meuniermr said...

fly ball please..

redsock said...

if he cared, it would have been a triple. fucker.

Kevin said...

Fire!

Time for another Cactus RBI

meuniermr said...

IBB

tim said...

LOL

Iridescence said...

nice fiery double!

tim said...

Where's the dr???

Benjamin said...

An IBB is something a cactus would do.

meuniermr said...

Kotchman coming in as a PH, 0-1 against Camp.

Kevin said...

The Sea Bass shall get the job done.

tim said...

Carlson giving er hell in the pen. Jeeeezus.

redsock said...

Lowell - GIDP fear??

Kevin said...

Or the Kotch Rocket

Benjamin said...

Terry figures he's a lefty, I guess.

Benjamin said...

RBI

Ish said...

RUN!

Patrick said...

KOTCH ROCKET!!!!

tim said...

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Kevin said...

I'll take that

Now for some insurance runs

Patrick said...

Fak. This means Green is in for the 9th.

This should be exciting, and I mean that in a very bad way.

redsock said...

green at short, though, not as the closer

Benjamin said...

Green could use some insurance here.

tim said...

Good stuff.

redsock said...

laser show = blowout

Patrick said...

I want to hear Pedroia shout a hearty FUCK YEAH, all the way here in Kingston.

Kevin said...

lBBj on base four times tonight

Patrick said...

no runs please.

tim said...

fuck no.

Kevin said...

Alright, we'll go for the one run win

redsock said...

wagner time?

:>)

redsock said...

bot

s1c said...

Love getting to work and seeing the Sox take the lead, too bad Beckett sucked in this game (3 run hr's will do that).

Bot needs to be bot tonight

(p.s. kid is all packed at 8:00 tomorrow we are off to NY)

tim said...

damn KGB commercial...

"you'd pop out"
"why?"
"your fly is down!"

my mind is really in the gutter. all this talk about dongs.

redsock said...

if this stands, both the winning and losing pitcher will have each faced only one batter.

tim said...

b-b-but wins and losses are SOOOO meaningful!!!!!

Kevin said...

Sit

redsock said...

red dot deal official

Patrick said...

Just don't let the ball into play. Green will fuck it up, I don't care where it ends up.

Patrick said...

Angels got Teixeira last year for the post season.

Kazmir this year.

I expect similar results.

Kevin said...

Alright, DP time

Or any other sequence that gets two outs without allowing a run

redsock said...

gdgd has a live lookin -- and it's nesn!

woo hoo! nail it down for it ends pls

tim said...

I feel like that was very catchable.

meuniermr said...

WTF you fucking fuck.

Patrick said...

WTF!!!! He was out!!!

redsock said...

shit, lyndon

Kevin said...

So, it's going to be one of THOSE saves, is it?

tim said...

Patrick, so Kazmir will debate between Boston and New York, only to have his wife say she likes NY, and Kazmir gets an uber megadeal?

tim said...

fuck that fat fuck.

Benjamin said...

Suck in your fucking gut and you won't get hit.

meuniermr said...

Well at least the DP is in play now.

redsock said...

how about green to p and bot to ss?

Kevin said...

Come the fuck on, Bot

Get the outs

Patrick said...

Kazmir isn't a free agent after this year.

redsock said...

damn, nesn ends.
back to radio.

end it, bot, you asshole.

westcoastsox said...

C'mon!

redsock said...

castig: "barajas, who has 14 home runs tonight, including a two-run blast in the fifth ...."

Patrick said...

How come Matsuzaka is pitching in a Pappelbon suit these days?

Benjamin said...

Heh, that never works.

tim said...

WOOOOOOOOOO BARAJASASAHE!

Kevin said...

Sit

One more

redsock said...

snider may get that shower after all.

tim said...

A+L, Steph says Hi.

I'm currently in the process of having my mouth burn out. In classic Tim fashion, top 9, I'm eating.

She ordered some chinese food, one dish she asked for extra spicy. I'm good with spice but goddamn. This shit is intense.

Coupled with this game, my heart feels like its going to blow up.

Patrick said...

Golden showers tend to dirty the water.

tim said...

I think Snider got a new shirt. IIRC, last time I saw him he looked like Pigpen.

redsock said...

i am a huge wimp re spicy.

hi, steph!

Benjamin said...

WATER

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

... and Snider gets the (non-muddy) golden shower!

s1c said...

Dirty fragging water!!!

Kevin said...

SIT

WATER

Patrick said...

STINKY SMELLY GOLDEN DIRTY WATER!!

meuniermr said...

Dirty rainy water.

tim said...

FUCKIN HORSE SHIT FUCKING COCKSUCK SATELLITE DOUCHEFUCK ASSWIPE

I GUESS THEY WON SO DIRTY DANNY RAIN WATER!

FUCK YOU RAIN

tim said...

the water is dirty. not as dirty as the water in my toilet will be tomorrow after that spice. hoooooooo

/tmi

Iridescence said...

Nice win!

A Conformer said...

The Sox' WC lead keeps getting bigger and bigger! I had no idea the game had resumed, but instead went and watched some nazis being scalped. Good times.

L-girl said...

Note to self: do not eat Chinese or Indian food with Tim and Steph.

barajas, who has 14 home runs tonight

Wow, what a night! Imagine hitting 14 HRs in one night, but your team loses 6-5. Life is so unfair!

And the water is SO DIRTY!!

Love that expanded WC lead, but still not giving up on the AL East.
