G114: Red Sox 9, Angels 6

The bats rescued Jon Lester (3.1-8-5-3-3, 93) and the Sox moved 6 GA in the East.

Mike Lowell reached base five times: single, three doubles, walk;

Dustin Pedroia had two singles, one home run, three runs scored;

JD Drew and Julio Lugo each had two hits; and

Brandon Moss got his first career hit and scored his first career run.

Tonight's game tied the Angels record for longest nine-inning home game: 4:02 (also set on September 30, 2000 against Seattle).

***

Jon Lester (5.09 ERA) / Dustin Moseley (4.43 ERA)

JD Drew will play center field tonight.

And Brandon Moss gets the start in right.

It's hard to argue with WMP:
I want to be traded. I want to play. They know I want to play. I'm surprised I wasn't traded before the deadline. ... They want me to perform, but how can I perform when I have just a couple of at-bats, then they take me out, and I don't play again for days? They said I would be given a chance to play, but it hasn't happened. ... I am not a guy who has caused any trouble, but I want to play.
Check out Pena's home/road split this year:
       PA   AVG   OBP   SLG   OPS
Home 90 .138 .233 .200 .433
Away 74 .324 .378 .632 1.010

Hells yeah.

thatdietcokegirl said...

yes yes. YES!!!! hehe

Jere said...

3 hits for Dubya. I mean the Doobler. Or whatever.

tim said...

He can just Moseley on off the mound!

Jere said...

And fittingly the DOUBLE-u B commercial comes on.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i think this wb ad is a bit much.

Jere said...

Right?

mattymatty said...

Nice! Lowell gives us the lead again! Great job of hitting by Lowell. I think he's 3 for 3 tonight.

tim said...

And fittingly the DOUBLE-u B commercial comes on.

lmao, saw that. good ol' nesn bonding.

thatdietcokegirl said...

actually, yah, good on ya jere. totally fitting :)

still. i'm reminded of like sister act or something and whoopi goldberg's fro when it comes on.

Woti-woti said...

WTF? Darren Oliver? Did a zombie movie just cut in?

tim said...

haha tdcg...i was thinking more Home Alone, just because of that scene near the end with the choir.

Jere said...

It's the Like a Prayer of commercials.

tim said...

come on captain tekski...do something useful!

tim said...

not useful for reggie willits!

Jere said...

Bonds: 757. Pulling away from A-Rod.

Jere said...

I hate how she waits so long to say "Yes!" That's something you say spontaneously. You can't run across the room, holding it in, and then say it.

mattymatty said...

Some crappy team should bring back Aaron and have the opposing pitchers throw meatballs to him so he can pass Bonds.

Jere said...

Drew looks awesome in center.

mattymatty said...

Gotta get up real early tomorrow, so good night everyone. Go Sox!

thatdietcokegirl said...

It's the Like a Prayer of commercials.

haha! it is...*spastic madonna flourish*

there was a choir scene in home alone?? (choir scenes ftw!) ;)

ps. goddamnit!!! this game...

tim said...

OK, lets suffer through SL for this inning and hope that Vlad doesn't come around and score. Then the amazing quad of DelOkaGagPap can come in and finish off the Obtuse Angles.

Jere said...

That shows you that the Jeter play in Oakland was just fundamental play, not a miracle. (In both plays the runner didn't slide and barely beat the throw--this one the ump got right.)

thatdietcokegirl said...

goodnight matty :)

tim said...

White Flag being raised in the pen.

PS: re: home alone choir scene, there definately is, when he goes to the church on xmas eve (near the end of the movie) - he meets scary old dude with shovel there.

thatdietcokegirl said...

should he have tried to get vlad?

Jere said...

*not acute!*

redsock said...

i'm still here. l's asleep on the couch.

so we win this, 18-15, right?

thatdietcokegirl said...

PS: re: home alone choir scene, there definately is, when he goes to the church on xmas eve (near the end of the movie) - he meets scary old dude with shovel there.

yeah i remember that, i just don't recall a rousing gospel choir.

redsock said...

dude, you walked mrs. garret.

hook 'em tito.

thatdietcokegirl said...

so we win this, 18-15, right?

it's shaping up that way isn't it? i can't believe it's just the 5th.

tim said...

i wouldn't say it was rousing. just the church choir thing. if you're going for a rousing church choir, then hell yeah, sister act all the way.

---------------

glass half full view: potential DP now available.

redsock said...

timlin in with guys on 1st and 3rd and 1 out, up by 1. ... what could go wrong?

tim said...

Nothing at all.

(if this was 93)

Jere said...

Waste one, Mike.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i'm trying to think of other church choir scenes to distract myself from this timlin moment.

hmmm...

(yah waste one)

thatdietcokegirl said...

good pitch. why'd he have to go and get a piece.

nick said...

I just got home from doing my show and am taking a quick scan of the comments...

C'mon folks - where is the love? (obviously not between Yugo and Look) but let's give the sox some.

thatdietcokegirl said...

sheisserrr.

Jere said...

That was a really nice play. Too bad we didn't get that swing call.

thatdietcokegirl said...

it's the 40th anniversary of the summer of love. yeah, more love!

tim said...

Wow, Michael did far better than I could have hoped for with inherited runners.

redsock said...

Time of Game (5 innings): 2:21

redsock said...

Here's some luv: I'm calling a HR for WMP here.



WHOA -- look at that hair!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

silly me. and my crazy luv.

Woti-woti said...

Jesus, Wily Mo, if ya can't hit Darren Oliver ....

nick said...

redsock said...
Here's some luv: I'm calling a HR for WMP here.


I like that love. not reciprocal, though.

Jere said...

I thought '68 was the summer of love. Or was that the year of the pitcher?

nick said...

I like the standing bat touch.

thatdietcokegirl said...

omg they re-made halloween? just stop hollywood. stopppp.

ps. jere, nope, it was 67 :)
ray manzarek just did a good show about it (in part) for bbc radio. right here

:)

redsock said...

tito sends timlin out for a 2nd inning -- AGAIN!

his blind devotion to white flag annoys me greatly.

Jere said...

ROB ZOMBIE remade Halloween....

Woti-woti said...

Yeah, it was 67. I laid lots of sod that summer but some of my buddies did OK.

Jere said...

When was the Summer of George?

thatdietcokegirl said...

aha.

Jere said...

"I laid lots of sod"

Got laid lots: de Sade.

Jere said...

Sorry, I'll use the "it's late" excuse.

Jere said...

You got yer 1390, yer 1440, AND the 1550!

tim said...

The house of pain! Oh yeah!

Let's do it, Okie!

tim said...

Look at Tito over there, talkin it up with Timlin. Fucking chums.

tim said...

If this game keeps up at the pace it's going, I just may have to pop open the bottle of chardonnay...haha, going classy tonight.

Jere said...

Great, defensive indifference to the go-ahead run.

tim said...

OH YEAH! YOUVE BEEN BAT-DADDED!

Jere said...

Nice, Oak! This could be a 400-comment night....

tim said...

looks the the two of us will have to carry the load!

thatdietcokegirl said...

i need that wb ad right now.
keep my spirits up.

Woti-woti said...

Jeemer!!

Now Lugo, you have the perfect opportunity to show up your counterpart and become a true Red Sox.

thatdietcokegirl said...

scout-taylor compton as laurie strode.

no, just. no.

Jere said...

I feel some lurkers.... By the way, my drink of choice is Marshmallow Fluff, with pieces of chocolate in it. Fun.

thatdietcokegirl said...

OH!!!!

tim said...

FUCK YEAH DUSTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Jere said...

HR! Orsillo, didn't you see the ball bouncing behind him in the pen?? Woohoo!!

tim said...

haha, clearly not....that def went off his glove

Jere said...

Off the glove. Bout time we caught a nice break like that.

Woti-woti said...

Dustin!!!

Mrs. Garrett should have let the amazing Matthews fly over to get that. WOOHOO.

Jere said...

Youk having bad luck at the plate tonight. What's Remy talking about?

Jere said...

Manny's settin him up...

tim said...

By the way, my drink of choice is Marshmallow Fluff, with pieces of chocolate in it. Fun.

Do go on...this sounds delicious. (it better involve that fluff marshmallow paste stuff!)

Is that what you drink at the punk rock shows while the kids are drinking 40s of Olde English and Rum and Cokes? hahaha

nick said...

so remy blathers on about stuff, but curious stuff actually happening around the game. curious incident..let's just ignore it.

thatdietcokegirl said...

chown.

Jere said...

Exactly. My alcohol is junk food and candy and stuff.

tim said...

were they playing a shift on drew there? or was aybar just that rangeful?

Jere said...

Chone, to me, looks like Grandmaster Flash. Who looks like Willie Randolph.

Jere said...

If Lowell triples and homers in this at bat, he's got a cycle.

Jere said...

So last night Remy mentions this mysterious fire near the Stadium, and tonight it's "everyone moving in the bullpen" or whatever. I think it's the Summer of Love for him if you know what I mean.

tim said...

So last night Remy mentions this mysterious fire near the Stadium, and tonight it's "everyone moving in the bullpen" or whatever. I think it's the Summer of Love for him if you know what I mean.

lmao, i remember that one. he wouldn't shut up about it...but can ya blame him for his own summer of love...(just had a wicked deja vu when i pasted that comment into this box...weird)

Woti-woti said...

I thought I heard Teener suggesting on Sunday that they all go up to that famous Red Sox bar for a day trip. Maybe it was today. Maybe he's still giddy from a day out with Teener.

thatdietcokegirl said...

sob.

thatdietcokegirl said...

jaw-dins.

tim said...

Man. Well, I feel safe with this one run lead.

Get Okie to chop through the 7th, Dim the 8th and Snuff the 9th and we're golden - back to 6 GA, and on the way up.

thatdietcokegirl said...

those red sock fans did not do their job right there.

thatdietcokegirl said...

hey jere, coco's in the game. lol.

tim said...

chrissakes, i was about to say - is that coco in CF? so much for a day off...

Woti-woti said...

WHA. Jesus, I was dozing off there and had a flash of an easy ground ball to Lugo. Scared the shit out of me. Oh.

tim said...

WHA. Jesus, I was dozing off there and had a flash of an easy ground ball to Lugo. Scared the shit out of me. Oh.

Your TV must be broken...

tim said...

TV should be fixed now.

Woti-woti said...

God no. Now pop-ups are in the nightmare bank.

thatdietcokegirl said...

*invokes rousing church choir*

tim said...

The only thing that would make that commercial better would be that frog at the front and center of the choir...

*froggy voice* "ON THE DOUBLE-U BEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

(that reminds me of a Dave Chappelle live standup bit...not going to post the details here, but it's quite hilarious)

Jere said...

My power went out! Just got it back. Fortunately I found the radio and Geffner got me through that last inning. Acted like Lugo should've caught that ball....

tim said...

thatdietcokegirl said...

lol, tim.


(dimmer is up)

Jere said...

It's really scary when you've got the AC running, all the lights, the TV, in the middle of the night, and then it's just quiet and dark. And my girlfriend has all these glow in the dark skulls, one of which I found myself face to face with while feeling for the radio.

tim said...

He really should have caught it.

God no. Now pop-ups are in the nightmare bank.

Your nightmare bank doesn't have the google toolbar? that badboy has a pop-up blocker!

nice, coco.

tim said...

WTG Moss!

Jere said...

First hit for Brandon "Arroyo" Moss.

thatdietcokegirl said...

hetfield gets a hit!

Jere said...

Here comes Remy talkin about the classic first hit prank.

thatdietcokegirl said...

he loves that.

tim said...

Lugo's sac bunt attempt goes 20 rows back of the plate, jesus.

tim said...

muahahaha! FINALLY!

Jere said...

Nice sacrifice, Lugo. Now just a fly ball, minimum.

tim said...

Watch him find a way to make a triple play out of this.

thatdietcokegirl said...

lol those comments are making me giggle.

Jere said...

That'll do!

tim said...

There's your minimum. Good enough.

thatdietcokegirl said...

ok guys he got it done ;p

Jere said...

Odds are Lugo makes an out from the dugout.

thatdietcokegirl said...

omg that was not a strike.

Jere said...

Are there ANY Angels fans left in the park?

redsock said...

my blogger connection was fucked up, but it seems good now.

huzzah for moss!!!

tim said...

Lugo causing a forfeit would not surprise me at this point.

thatdietcokegirl said...

scioscia always looks childishly perplexed.

lol i had to look up his name spelling.

tim said...

Are there ANY Angels fans left in the park?

They know they're about to be dimmed and snuffed.

Jere said...

Gagne with a spoon, Pap with a save.

tim said...

it's a shame we wont get to see frod again tonight, hootin and hollerin, jumpin around pointing to the sky, doing cartwheels while fireworks come out of his fingers as he gets a save.

thatdietcokegirl said...

should be pap with a smear. (sorry, i couldn't let that go;))

Jere said...

Like I said, Youk with bad luck at the plate tonight. Did Lugo call timeout before that pitch?

tim said...

thanks, tdcg...just puked a lil in my mouth.

Jere said...

Yeah, this game is due for its annual Smear.

thatdietcokegirl said...

ahahaa ;p

thatdietcokegirl said...

presents!

Jere said...

96 tears for the Angels.

tim said...

RED SOX! - FUCK YEAH!

comin again to save the mothafuckin day, yeah!

tim said...

(sidenote: sorry for all the profanity people, i've been in a swearing mood this week)

thatdietcokegirl said...

*tumbleweed*

lol, no i'm mutherfucking with you ;)

Woti-woti said...

I'd love to hear what these dickhead Angel announcers are saying about their shittiness but I have an irrational fear of both balls hit to Lugo and jinxs.

thatdietcokegirl said...

*dim all the lights sweet darlin..*

tim said...

My first view of Gagne...

Jere said...

"It's like a four-hour game." --George Louis Costanza

Jere said...

Get 2.

Jere said...

Maybe not with Figgins.

tim said...

Did Orsillo just say "You guys wonderin? It's been awhile." ???

If so, then: That's what she said!

thatdietcokegirl said...

he looks all hot and uncomfortable. why wear long sleeves in socal heat?

thatdietcokegirl said...

oh i get it, gagne is the new 'let's make it interesting' guy.

tim said...

Why is he wearing long sleeves when it's a pleasant 71 in Anaheim right now.

Nice K on Ch-own. I retract my previous statement.

Jere said...

Figgins takes the Newt out of Fig Newtons. But puts an extra I in there. I of Newt.

Nice K, Gagne

tim said...

great minds think alike tdcg ;-)

tim said...

Aight, its been dimmed. Time for some snuffage.

Jere said...

Dien Bien PHU! (Popped Him Up)

thatdietcokegirl said...

^5 ;)

thatdietcokegirl said...

71...but the humidity is at a flesh-toasting 59%. so.

tim said...

I must say, it took me like 7-8 seconds to register the "^5"...the thought of googling it had crossed my mind when I was like "Ohhhh! Iiiiiii'm dumb."

thatdietcokegirl said...

haha ;)

Jere said...

What a night for Lowell.

thatdietcokegirl said...

tek: not as many butt-grabs for moving the runner over this time.

tim said...

so much for getting up early and exercising before work tomorrow. quick bowl of corn flakes and i'm out the door....it used to be roll out of bed and into the car basically, so breakfast is an improvement.

not sure if im ready to jump right into this exercise thing just yet...baby steps.

yeeeaaa! don just gave us some props! 2am on the east coast!

And the Doctor slices that perfectly, just like the bat was a scalpel.

Too bad Tekczynski can't say the same.

(I love how his name gets more and more Polish each time i type it)

tim said...

(so tired.)

Jere said...

get on so Moss can get his first ML HR

tim said...

time for moss' first HR?

thatdietcokegirl said...

*church choir?*

i could totally go for cereal right now. mf....apple jacks.

tim said...

oh man, we're all on the same track right now.

tim said...

Ha! Random Irish dude on Globe commercial!

"Keeps ya in the forefront, politically!"

tim said...

Oh man....i would love to serve up a cyber-trough of apple jacks right about now.

tim said...

Oh man, I'm saying oh man so much! Oh man, that must mean I'm tired!

tim said...

Quad posts, way to go tim.

(probably quint with this)....

Woti-woti said...

Dear Snuffer,

We'ed all like to see that good fastball of yours, you know, the one that explodes at the end. For strikes, of course. Thank you.
Signed,
The boys and girls still left at JoS.

Jere said...

Byung-Hyun Kim's back on the D-backs??--and the home fans booed him tonight, as well they should have. Good for them. I'll never forgive that guy for that '01 performance.

thatdietcokegirl said...

i didn't know wells was 44. he should be retired and getting a muscle-shirt tan somewhere.

Jere said...

That Globe commercial's funny--because they do an identical one for the NY Times.

thatdietcokegirl said...

(did i just say that? or am i dreaming...)

tim said...

definitely said it.


take that, crotch man!

Jere said...

You may have said it.

thatdietcokegirl said...

it's super dorky. the dude mentioning reading the times w/his dad in his bed? i mean c'mon.

Jere said...

Nerf Crotchbat.

tim said...

lmao, more comments from Remy on Jerry's Summer of Luv...

"I had no clue what I was saying - I was just pulling names up and throwin em out there!"

tim said...

I'm almost sad to see it go.

It's been a slice, ladies and gents.

thatdietcokegirl said...

bam.

Jere said...

The 6-up store is open! And we go to Bal, while Yanks go to Cleveland. We'll put some space in there again.

Woti-woti said...

Dear Snuffer,

Thanks bud, you're gold.

Jere said...

Ap-ple Jacks! Ap-ple Jacks!

thatdietcokegirl said...

/churchchoir

ok that was fun. nite guys! :))

Woti-woti said...

Good night folks. It was in the bag. We all knew that statistically, 3 game series rarely end in sweeps. Had it all along.

Woti-woti said...

Good night folks. It was in the bag. We all knew that statistically, 3 game series rarely end in sweeps. Had it all along.

tim said...

Nothing like a game just ending, followed by a "SportsCenter" highlights show - the first series of highlights they show - the game that just ended! Brilliant.

redsock said...

fucking blogger -- sorry for being unable to post.

tim said...

you should be sorry - you singlehandedly have to post to get this up to 400.

sidenote: heh, "marshmallow fluff" is still in my Firefox google search box.

tim said...

Fuck you, Directv. Just scrolled through the guide and located Walker, Texas Ranger.

This episode looks golden already.

Some teacher: "What we consider punishment, the children consider cool."
Walker: "Don't worry, I'll find a way to wipe the smirks off their faces."

Looks like I'll be going to bed at 3.

redsock said...

Byung-Hyun Kim ... I'll never forgive that guy for that '01 performance.

That was all Brenley's fault. ALL.

What was Kim forced to throw, 70-80 pitches in 2 nights?

We don't blame Pedro or Wake for 2003, don't blame Kim for 2001.

Brenley did everything he could to blow that series, but his team was too resilent.

tim said...

Oh man, this episode has Deion Sanders in it! If I have to post Walker updates to get this thread to 400, I'll do it! If thats what it takes...

Jere said...

That freakin' guy had 9 days off. He comes in and gives up a tying homer when three outs wins the game, and then comes back the next game and does the same thing. I'm not saying I love Brenley and he did a great job, but god, that Kim pissed me off. Especially right at that time. It's bad enough watching the Yanks in the World Series when everyone else is hating them, too. But that year, everybody talked into rooting for them--and me watching that game in some upstate NY bar-- I felt like I was in the Twilight Zone. Never will Kim be forgiven by me. And then we go and get him, when he proves he can't do the one thing we were trying to do, beat the Yanks. I was way madder about that than I was the Arroyo thing. No forgivey-givey.

Glad he didn't pitch in game 6 or 7....

Jere said...

And it wasn't like he was some random pitcher. He was touted, dude. This guy was supposed to shut the door! And even if he did what he did JUST ONE night, I'd have been pissed enough. And he comes back and repeats the feat!

Jere said...

Wait, and it was tying AND winning HR the first time, and tying HR the next game. 3.1 IP in the WS, 3 HR. All to tie or win games in ninth inning or later. Brenley himself could've done better.

tim said...

Wow, I was really struggling to keep it together near the end there.

I definitely lost it by the time I found Walker, maybe even in the 8th.

Zenslinger said...

Got a little weird last night, didn't it?

I was asleep on the West Coast before this was over...but happy to get up this morning with the good news. We needed this one.

thatdietcokegirl said...

Some teacher: "What we consider punishment, the children consider cool."
Walker: "Don't worry, I'll find a way to wipe the smirks off their faces."


lol. remember when conan obrien used to play random WTR clips on his show?
so hilarious. here's one on youtube

thatdietcokegirl said...

omg wait i found a better one. lol @ about 4:30 ;D

tim said...

the lever! yes!

tim said...

i plan to watch those when i get home from work - so good. not sure if this one is in there, but i love the one where they show the old guy (CD) then the villain, then the old guy, then the villain, old guy/villain/old guy/villain/old guy...then the old guy finally goes "It's HIM!"

The one where the old guy dumps a pot of chili on someone is classic, too.

tim said...

400, with the triple post.
