G103: Red Sox 7, Devil Rays 1

Hammel retired the first 11 Boston batters before David Ortiz singled, and through 5.1 innings, that was his only blemish. But with one out in the 6th, he walked Alex Cora and Julio Lugo and with his pitch count two shy of his limit of 90, he was pulled.

It was a much-needed break for the Sox. Kevin Youkilis hit Juan Salas's 4th pitch for a three-run home run, giving the Red Sox a 3-1 lead. They added four more runs in the 8th: Ortiz walked, Manny Ramirez singled, JD Drew singled (4-1), Coco Crisp doubled (6-1), and Doug Mirabelli singled (7-1).

Wakefield stumbled with two out in the 2nd (allowing two singles, a walk and a run), but finished strong (6-6-1-3-7, 101), giving way to Manny Delcarmen (2-1-0-0-2) and Kyle Snyder (1-0-0-1-0).

Tim Wakefield (4.74, 95 ERA+) / Jason Hammel (5.82, 78 ERA+)

RedSox.com:
[RHP] Hammel made a spot start on Saturday against the Yankees and pitched well, allowing two runs in four innings. He would have gone farther, but he had been pitching in relief and was not "stretched out" enough. Hammel possesses a nice variety of pitches ... He is 0-1 with a 10.50 ERA in three appearances against the Red Sox.
Hammel's Game Log v Red Sox:

070507 Rel at Bos 1 3 2 2 2 0

Clearly, the Sox like his "nice variety of pitches".

Never mind the deletions, here's the sox missives.... (or something).

As part of my poser lifestyle, I'll be on the radio from 7-8pm est tonight playing scratchy records while watching 2 batters behind on gameday. If you want to, listen while you gameday--I won't talk about red sox nation, remy, bonds, or what schilling said (berkshireradio.org).

Then I'm gonna go watch the rest of the game and go out for some live music.

have fun y'all.

Back up to 8 games. Cool.

All my sweaty pontificating from a couple months back on how hard it will be for the Yanks to win the wild card is not holding up too well at the moment. All the big teams in the AL are deflating a bit, if not full-on tanking lately -- except, thankfully, for us -- and the Yanks are now only 5 games out.
