G104: Red Sox 12, Devil Rays 6 (12)

As a six-run 12th inning eases the shock of Snuffer giving up a game-tying, two-run home run to start the bottom of the ninth.

***

Jon Lester (3.00, 150 ERA+) / James Shields (4.44, 103 ERA+)

RedSox.com:
Shields experienced the worst outing of his career on Sunday afternoon against the Yankees, allowing 10 runs on 10 hits in 3.1 innings to take his sixth loss. Shields has been the Rays' best pitcher all season, effectively using a fastball, changeup, curve and cutter to retire hitters. The changeup remains his best pitch. ...

David Ortiz has two homers in five career at-bats against Shields.

Tampa Bay infielder Ty Wigginton has been traded to Houston for reliever Dan Wheeler, the Rhode Island native.

Ex-sox great:
Minor leaguer Sadler suspended 50 games for positive drug test

redsock said...

So I guess he's not playing tonight!

Houston -Tampa Bay trade:

Oh the excitement of the trade deadline....They need to move up the date to mid -August....

redsock said...

Work continues. No TV for me. Will check back.

redsock said...

Not so good in the Sox 1st:

Lugo K
Yook K
Ortiz K

redsock said...

Yah! Varitek tells me to STFU with an RBI single.

redsock said...

Then Coco bunts for a hit, Cora is HBP and Lugo draws a bases-loaded 4-pitch walk. 2-0 Sox.

redsock said...

Tejada with the 2-run double off Fat Billy.

2-0 Birds after 1.

redsock said...

The TCM allows two singles with one out in the 2nd, but escapes.

Lester at 21 pitches thru 2.

redsock said...

O's 3-0.

TCM's line:

5-6-3-3-4, 98 pitches (56 S / 42 B)

redsock said...

In the lower right-hand corner of MLB's Gameday, there is a Hall of Fame-related ad for a credit card (maybe).

MLB spells Cal Ripken's last name "Ripkin".

Andy said...

And thats why they call him The Doctor

redsock said...

Birds rolling 5-1 after 7, with Shemp Being Shemp in the outfield.

redsock said...

It's time for Jeemer and the Bot.

Zenslinger said...

E-Slappy in the O's look for insurance in the bottom of the 8th.

Zenslinger said...

Aigh! My eyes!

redsock said...

Love seeing those obese Rays fans yelling and fist-pumping at the cameras as if they have bragging rights or something.

So we win in extras. No big deal.

redsock said...

E-Slappy

With him and FBfO, it looks like I'll be posting some tabloids tomorrow AM!

redsock said...

Tek chases a high fastball for strike 3 -- yet again. Grrrr..........

redsock said...

MFY get 4 in 9th, but lose 7-5.

L-girl said...

Slugo with the glove and the bat tonight! And the wheels too, of course.

redsock said...

Come ON! It's Al Fuckin' Reyes for god's sake!

tim said...

Fucking idiot d-rays announcers. Ragging on the umps about the check swing call.

"Oh my goodness! That was horrible! ANOTHER bad call!"

redsock said...

It was pretty obvious on the replay he swung.

redsock said...

I feel sorry for Tampa Bay. I mean, one bad call here, another bad call there, before you know it, you're 24.5 GB.

tim said...

True, however, these announcers piss me off to no end.

tim said...

"He could rifle it into the right field gap, he has that kind of swing.

Dribbler to first, Youkilis has it and Norton is retired."

redsock said...

The TB team includes one of my faves, Joe Migraine.

L-girl said...

"Come ON! It's Al Fuckin' Reyes for god's sake!"

I know. Since when did he become good. Met reject.

L-girl said...

I have NESN tonight. They're no treat in extra innings.

Come on, Ococ!

redsock said...

Just noticed:

Coco Crisp = Coco see RISP.

Drive 'em in!

redsock said...

Watching Rays on MLBTV.

redsock said...

Ococ with the klaw.

L-girl said...

Are eyedrops a performance enhancing substance? Our whole bullpen is using Jeemer's eyedrop juice.

9casey said...

Is Pedroia that hurt

L-girl said...

"Coco Crisp = Coco see RISP."

:)

"Not klaw, kraw!"

9casey said...

Jesus, they stink.......

tim said...

In the words of the Slackers...

Keep on walkin...

L-girl said...

Slugo walks and gets an RBI - twice today!

L-girl said...

"Jesus, they stink......."

That they do. They hung in there for a while, but they have no pen at all.

9casey said...

Jae Kuk Ryu ....Jae Kuk Who?

9casey said...

Mabe tommorrow they will let us feast on Casey(definetly using eyedrops) Fossum

tim said...

Jae Kuk Ryu ....Jae Kuk Who?

So he owns a bunch of resorts?

L-girl said...

YOOOOOK

that ought to do it!!

9casey said...

Is Timmeh warmin up and does he have the cammies on?

L-girl said...

Fossum, now there's a guy who needs steroids.

L-girl said...

Timlin unavailable tonight, no word on why. Vasquez up.

9casey said...

L-girl said...
Fossum, now there's a guy who needs steroids


The stick in your butt kind......

L-girl said...

Remy said Iwamura "cadillacked after the ball".

9casey said...

Vasquez.......Lopez

L-girl said...

"The stick in your butt kind......"

You trying to give me nightmares or something?

Hey! It's 12-6!

L-girl said...

Lopez, right. I do that all the time w/ the Javys.

I lost count along time ago...:)

L-girl said...

"I'm right again!"

And that's what matters. :)

I believe we're back up to 9 GA?

L-girl said...

Damn I'm tired and I have work tomorrow. (A novel event.) G'night all.

Zenslinger said...

Novel?

redsock said...

Out of the (recent) ordinary.

phrenile said...

Yup, 9 up. Feels good. Let's make it 10 tomorrow.

Jere said...

"It was pretty obvious on the replay he swung." Didn't look like it at all on NESN (who didn't have the all-important side angle, though.)

redsock said...

Rays TV had a roof shot that showed he broke his wrist/bat across the plate.

Joe Grav said...

nights like this is what the 'joy of sox' is all about...........great game

L-girl said...

Novel?

I've been unemployed. Now I'm working again.

L-girl said...

I'll take the recent 1-0 Dice-K win any day. Losing the lead (3 times?) to Tampa Bay is not my idea of a great game!

But a nice offensive barrage and win, for sure.
