G96: Red Sox 8, Mariners 6 (13)

Red Sox  - 003 002 100 000 2 - 8 13  3
Mariners - 010 000 005 000 0 - 6 7 1
Lackey (8-2-1-1-6, 116) pitched 7.2 no-hit innings before Josh Bard lined a clean single to right-center. Seattle's second inning run was unearned.

In the ninth, Manny Delcarmen and Jonathan Papelbon flushed the comfortable lead right down the toilet. MDC faced four batters and got no one out. Bot faced six Mariners, allowing a double and walking two (one intentionally). Boston committed two errors in the inning: Marco Scutaro and Bill Hall (his second E of the game).

Both teams went in order in the 10th and 11th innings. Hideki Okajima escaped a bases loaded/one out jam in the 12th by getting Jose Lopez and Milton Bradley to pop up in the infield on consecutive pitches.

Kevin Youkilis began the top of the 13th with a single. With two outs, Mike Cameron walked and Eric Patterson (who had pinch-hit for Hall in the 11th) lined a double to the gap in left-center. It rolled to the wall, and Boston led 8-6. Ramon Ramirez retired the Mariners in order for the save.

Several hours earlier, the Red Sox had built a nice lead for Lackey on two two-run homers -- by Hall in the third and J.D. Drew in the sixth. David Ortiz also drove in a run in the third and Marco Scutaro bopped a solo dong in the seventh.

Lackey was four outs away from a no-no tonight, but roughly two years ago (July 29, 2008), he went 8.1 innings for the Angels against the Red Sox at Fenway, before Dustin Pedroia broke it up.

Hall, Drew and Scutaro homered to help the Red Sox build a 6-1 lead after seven innings.

The Yankees beat the Royals 10-4, so the win kept Boston 7 GB in the East. The Red Sox moved to 4 GB the idle Rays in the WC.
Example
John Lackey / Ryan Rowland-Smith
Scutaro, SS
McDonald, LF
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Drew, RF
Cameron, CF
Hall, 2B
Cash, C
Jeremy Hermida has been activated and Daniel Nava was optioned to Pawtucket.

Royals/Yankees, 7 PM
Example
July 22:

1939 - Boston Bees catcher Al Lopez drops his second foul pop of the game and an angry fan runs onto the field to punch him. (Unfortunately, I don't know if the fan did punch him.)

1960 - Who is the first player to steal a base in four consecutive decades? That Boston speedster, Ted Williams: 2 in 1939, 14 from 1940-49, 7 from 1950-59, and 1 in 1960. Rickey Henderson will match that in 2000 (he debuted in 1979).

1986 - The Mets beat the Reds 6-3 in 14 innings. For the final five innings, New York manager Davey Johnson shuttles relievers Jesse Orosco and Roger McDowell from the mound to the outfield. The box score lists the final four Mets pitchers as Orosco, McDowell, Orosco, and McDowell. Stuff about that game and pitchers playing the field here and here; McDowell remembers that night.

redsock said...

redsock said...

10th mariner coming up.

redsock said...

mdc's shittastic outing is why it is tempting to use bard every day.

god fucking damn it

meunier said...

Where has our defence gone???

redsock said...

THIRD OUT!

we got the momentum now.

meunier said...

We've lost this game already, you can't win extra inning games on the road.

meunier said...

I wonder if MDC will be released after this??

redsock said...

re mdc - no way.

redsock said...

that was nice and quick.

bard in

Ish said...

What the fuck is this shit?

redsock said...

Well this game has certainly taken a turn for the shitty.

What the fuck is this shit?


Two good possible subtitles.

Ish said...

Ian Browne pointed out on Twitter that the Red Sox are 1-5 in extra innings on the road this season. In case we needed to be cheered up.

redsock said...

bot looks beyond dazed on the bench.

Ish said...

Looks like this has fucked all of the Red Sox up. They all look either pissed or deflated out there.

SoSock said...

Damn. Doze off for a while and what happens? I guess "this game sure has taken a turn for the shitty" happens

redsock said...

"pissed" is good.

...



i am told that it is so totally and completely on.

redsock said...

aaaaaaaardsma in

redsock said...

jeemer up

(ah fuck)

Ish said...

It's also so very on.

redsock said...

patterson - there's a threat off the bench for ya.

redsock said...

aardvark heat

Ish said...

Why can't we get guys like this?

redsock said...

why can't we get relievers like that?

Ish said...

Bill Hall fucked up my grammar.

redsock said...

i would have also accepted:

"how could idiot theo let this guy go???"

redsock said...

bard threw 11 pitches.

i want him for another inning.

Ish said...

Orrrrr not.

redsock said...

but we get jeemer and his .331 opp avg.

redsock said...

88 heater

Ish said...

Well everything else seems to be a farce tonight... Jeemer's opp avg. might as well be another.

redsock said...

NCBM*: first 2-scorecard game of the year. SEA had 10 guys bat in the 9th, so i had to use two columns, so only 11 innings fit.


(NCBE: Nobody Cares But Me)

redsock said...

a second mrs. garrett?

redsock said...

save us, flo.

Ish said...

Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times says the Mariners have never come back from down 5 runs in the 9th to tie.

redsock said...

yay - history.

Ish said...

Go big or go home, right?

redsock said...

wow - i thought big mistake to throw it,but he nearly got him!

Zenslinger said...

I want to go to bed even here in California. What a fucked up game.

redsock said...

i think we may be fucked.

redsock said...

wow - scoop by patterson.

shit - guy on third with 1 out. i have no faith in jeemer.

redsock said...

tighten up, infield.

redsock said...

PF3!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

That was a good thing. Didn't think I'd say that this inning.

redsock said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fuck yerah!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

Again... What the fuck is this shit?

How'd we get out of that??!

redsock said...

that ON has got me going.

Zenslinger said...

Christ. We live to fight another day.

Ish said...

I like that on in you!

redsock said...

who cares?

13th!!!

redsock said...

pop-ups on 2 straight pitches.

fuckin' A.

Ish said...

"Who cares!?"

Essackly.

redsock said...

YOOK.

P.S.: WE WILL NOT TONE IT DOWN

Ish said...

It's like the M's brought Nomar to the plate twice in a row.

redsock said...

lose one, you snakey bastard.

...

rut roh, ram ram ris rup

redsock said...

part of me wants to still be playing this one at 5 AM.

(not a shocking admission, i know)

redsock said...

OMFG

Ish said...

Shitting me, you've got to be.

Ish said...

Glad to see Beltre straighten that ball out next pitch. Lost a little distance on it, though.

redsock said...

better height, though

Ish said...

Touche.

redsock said...

be the man, patterson.

redsock said...

i have no faith in e-pat

redsock said...

redsock said...

but we need more than 2 runs.

meunier said...

Who do we have left to try to hold this??

Ish said...

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

What a fucking clownshoes game! I predict Dusty hits a dong here.

redsock said...

redsock said...

redsock said...

meunier said...

meunier said...

Ish said...

The way things are going that means he will less than fuck up the inning.

Ish said...

Or wait... Less than no faith.

Yeah he will strike him out here.


Or not. But the water is still weirdly dirty!

redsock said...

The water is (finally) Muddy!!!



had it all the way.

meunier said...

EXTRA DIRTY WATER!!!!!!

Ish said...

How would you like to be a Mariners fan right now?

Jere said...

what'd i miss?

Ish said...

Not much. Kinda boring game if you asked me.

redsock said...

yep. we scored, then they scored, then we scored, and we won.

SoSock said...

Cool. Kept waking up, watching a while, falling back asleep. Last I saw was middle of the 12th. Patterson - who'd a thunk? And nice to see something positive from Jeemer and RamRam for a change

tim said...

What the fuck was that about???

I thought it was safe, shutting down with a 6-1 lead heading to the 9th...way to go, red sox.

Well, I did continue to watch that epic meltdown. And almost shat myself this morning when I opened my email postgame alert, we WON?!?!?!?!

PATTERSON - really?!?!?!

tim said...

So we're up to .500 with the new avatars.

Fine. Let the fuck train roll tonight.
