G72: Rockies 2, Red Sox 1

Red Sox - 000 000 001 - 1  7  0
Rockies - 000 010 01x - 2 9 0
Lester (6-6-1-1-6, 90) allowed a single and a walk to start the fifth, and had nearly pitched out of danger when Todd Helton rapped an RBI single to right. Hideki Okajima gave up a run on three consecutive one-out singles in the eighth.

Chacin allowed four hits and five walks in 6.2 innings, but they were nearly all bunched together in two innings. Mike Cameron singled to open the third, but was thrown out stealing. Josh Reddick singled and, after a bunt from Lester, Marco Scutaro and Dustin Pedroia walked. With the bases loaded, Victor Martinez worked a full count but grounded to second.

In the seventh, Adrian Beltre walked with one out and Daniel Nava singled. After Chacin fanned Cameron, he walked Reddick to load the bases. Joe Neimel came into face pinch-hitter David Ortiz and Papi grounded to second.

Boston rallied in the ninth as Beltre lead off with a double. Nava struck out, but Cameron singled Beltre home. Pinch-hitters Bill Hall (F9) and Mike Lowell (6-3) could not deliver. Lowell's grounder was deep in the hole, but Clint Barmes had time to dive for it, tumble a bit, then get to his feet and throw to first. A turtle could have beaten it out for a hit, but, alas, Lowell is no turtle.

The Yankees beat the Diamondbacks 9-3 and the Rays lost to the Padres 2-1, so both Boston and Tampa Bay fell to 1.5 GB in the East.
Example
Jon Lester / Jhoulys Chacin
Scutaro, SS
Pedroia, 2B
Martinez, C
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Nava, LF
Cameron, CF
Reddick, RF
Lester, P
The last time the Red Sox played in Colorado was October 28, 2007, when Lester and friends finished a four-game sweep of the Rockies in the World Series.Lester gets the ball again tonight, as the Red Sox begin a road trip with three games each against the Rockies and Giants. (After that, five of their next eight games are against the Rays.)

AL East:
Padres/Rays, 7 PM
Yankees/Diamondbacks, 9:30 PM
Example
June 22:

1894 - Washington scores in every inning and beats Boston 26-12. Washington's George Tebeau scores four runs without getting a hit.

1912 - It's Ty Cobb's turn to bat with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, and the Tigers trailing 11-3, but no one can find him. George Mullin pinch-hits and flies out to end the game. Cobb was in the clubhouse taking a shower.

1916 - The Braves pull off a triple steal against the Giants in the 11th inning. It is the only extra-inning triple steal in National League history. It has happened only once in the AL: by the White Sox against the Senators on June 25, 1941.

mattymatty said...

Lucky fuckers... Papi hit that one hard.

Patrick said...

noooooooooooooooooooooooo

nick said...

blegh chunks of fuckery.

SoSock said...

squanderage.....boo

redsock said...

atchison and ramram were up

nick said...

solid 201, though.

L-girl said...

It posted twice, but now I won't delete the dupe.

Ish said...

Went bowling tonight with both my sisters and my dad. Well, he kept score. It was fantastic and felt like we were kids again. A rare moment these days.

...and the bowling alley had the game on! Woo hoo. I didn't miss much. (Yes I did. I was paying more attention to bowling)

mattymatty said...

On the bright side, if they bring Papi in to pitch he might hit again in the ninth!

Amy said...

I don't like these new fangled National League rules. :)

Amy said...

Nice job, Ramram.

redsock said...

top of the order for the 8th.

I love bowling

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Funny game, Haren (pitcher) gets a bases loaded hit and Papi (DH) grounds out.

redsock said...

we've hit this clown when he was in clev, so hit him now

nick said...

whoops. didn't include my comment on that. anyhow, it made me laugh.

Amy said...

Always happy to help anyone laugh!

Amy said...

Can we please SCORE? This is silly. Must be the thin air?

mattymatty said...

Victor! That'll start it off. Lets go YOUK!

redsock said...

rox say that fell in because the rockies OF are playing deep in a "no double play defense"

:>(

redsock said...

how does the thin air affect yook's sweat?

mattymatty said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK!!

nick said...

dammit. ok, move to the 9th and bust 'em.

Amy said...

Have we lost any games 1-0 this year? It doesn't feel like we have. It's always so frustrating to lose that way.

Ish said...

Please no soccer score.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well, it would be pretty hard to make a double play if you're playing deep.

Amy said...

Our pitching sure has looked good, but sadly so has theirs.

redsock said...

We have been shutout 3 times this year.

April 15 - Twins 8-0
April 22 - Texas 3-0
June 9 - Cleveland 11-0

Amy said...

No 1-0. I didn't think so. Being blown out 11-0 or 8-0 is depressing, but not as frustrating as this. Even 3-0 isn't.

L-girl said...

Ish, that sounds so much fun. I love bowling, although I suck at it. Allan is good. He has a trophy. (From like a million years ago)

redsock said...

well, we do have a shitty offense this year. ... blame theo.

Amy said...

Oh, man, what was THAT?

Perhaps it will not be 1-0...

Argghh.

Amy said...

Harvey and I went bowling on our first "date."

OK, I wish I hadn't said that about 1-0.

L-girl said...

Well, Amy no longer has to worry about losing 1-0.

(IF we lose, of course.)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Terrible hop. Bummer

meunier said...

That's a base hit.

Amy said...

Anyway, I am not sure we ever bowled together after that.

redsock said...

snakes up there too.

L-girl said...

Amy, it wasn't a date? It was a "date"?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Allan, catch me up. What's the reference to snakes and the infield? What did I miss?

Amy said...

We had known each other for more than a year, had done lots of things together with groups and alone, but it was the first time we did something AFTER we had gone from being friends to more than friends. So it wasn't like a date when a guy asks you out---it was just the first public thing we did together as a couple.

redsock said...

awhile back, beltre was complaining about the red sox infield, saying something like there are snakes in the grass or he can't control the snakes in the grass.

if you google beltre and "snakes in the grass", i'm sure it'll come up.

L-girl said...

Oh cool. Thanks for filling that in. :)

L-girl said...

Oh cool. Thanks for filling that in. :)

Amy, that is. Not Allan.

Amy said...

Now it's time to wake up, guys. Breathe that cool Rocky Mountain air and hit the god damn baseball.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Thanks. I'll check it out. I remember Beltre talking about the infield, but not the snake part.

mattymatty said...

Beltre, Nava, Cameron... come on guys, lets score some runs here!

Amy said...

Good start!

L-girl said...

Lead off half dong!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

“I had to get the hang of the grass here. The balls come like snakes and if you take your eyes off the ball for one second, you’re probably going to miss it. I’m trying to take as many balls as I can. But there are different hops everywhere. I have no choice but to get used to it.’’

mattymatty said...

Got back into the room to see Beltre on second. Yay!

Come on, Nava!

mattymatty said...

There's a "Lets go Red Sox!" chant going at Coors.

mattymatty said...

FUCK

mattymatty said...

Cam! We're on the board!!!

Amy said...

YES!!

Too bad we let them get that second run...

L-girl said...

Ok, we're not getting shut out!

nick said...

Hall... c'mon c'mon c'mon.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Win. This. Game.

redsock said...

okay, hall can dong and give us a lead and then pitch the 9th and get the save.

L-girl said...

I'm ready to praise Hallelujah...

meunier said...

.500 career avg for Hall vs. Belisle

Amy said...

Uch.

mattymatty said...

Drop drop drop CRAP.

L-girl said...

pfft

meunier said...

It's up to the Dr.

Amy said...

Dr Doubles?

mattymatty said...

Mikey Doubles!

redsock said...

somebody get me a doctor ...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

A double is all we need.

Amy said...

I will take a walk.

L-girl said...

Write us an Rx for a double...

Amy said...

Those slow legs...

Clean Rocky Mt water...

mattymatty said...

Double shit

nick said...

crud. out on that throw. season's over now.

redsock said...

too bad a turtle could have beaten that out -- but not slowell

L-girl said...

You can drink the water

Amy said...

Tomorrow we get them back.

nick said...

Don't know when, but I'll catch up with you all again. Clean water now, but I see a dirty future.

L-girl said...

Nick is right. Time to give up.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

SLOWell, wow

Clean water is yucky.

SoSock said...

Yeesh. Gotta have a little more offense against the damn Rox than that. Wicked Lester deserved better.
Fell asleep in the last inning last night. All Star team practicing every night, plus the Big League guys every other night, and it's suffocatingly HOT down here lately. I'm getting a tad fatigued.

Michael Holloway said...

"Cobb was in the clubhouse taking a shower."

That demonstrates a deep understanding of the game, a unique one, a very different level than most people.

Like Eric Cartman: "Fuck You Guys - I'm going home."

tim said...

EARTH QUAKE IN CANADA!!!!!

L-girl said...

Tim, did you feel anything? I saw the news (on FB) but didn't feel anything.

L-girl said...

Yes, 5.5, epicentre 61 kms north of Ottawa. Don't go by us, tons of people in Mississauga felt it! But we didn't. All my Ottawa and Toronto Facebook contacts are going nuts over it.

L-girl said...

Oops, you must have posted on a different thread! I'll go look...
