ALDS 3: Red Sox 9, Angels 1

RED SOX SWEEP ALDS!
Red Sox - 000 200 070 - 9 10  0
Angels - 000 000 001 - 1 8 0
Schilling was superb (7-6-0-1-4, 100).

Ortiz and Manny hit back-to-back home runs to start the fourth.

After Schilling got out of a small jam in the 7th, Boston sent 11 men to the plate in the top of the eighth: Lugo walked, Pedroia doubled to left (3-0), Youkilis hit a sac fly to center (4-0), Ortiz singled to left, Manny walked and Ellsbury pinch-ran, Lowell doubled to left (5-0), Drew hit into a FC, no out (6-0), Varitek doubled to left center (7-0), Crisp singled to center (9-0), Lugo popped to first, and Pedroia grounded into a FC at second.

ALCS 1 is Friday at Fenway!

***

Curt Schilling (3.87, 118 ERA+) / Jered Weaver (3.91, 111 ERA+)

Manny Ramirez: "Even when you don't feel good and you get hits, like I said, you're a bad man."

Dustin Pedroia's left shoulder seems fine. He took batting practice on Saturday. Terry Francona: "He's fine. Actually, we expected him to be a little more tender than he was."

I don't remember Steve Stone being this stupid when he worked for WGN. Obvioulsy, I wasn't paying attention. He's brutal.

OOOOOHHHHHH MAANNNY!! You're just a brute!

L-girl said...

BACK TO BACK DONGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!


MANNY AND PAPI, THEY BOTH BAD MEN!!!

nixon33 said...

BAD MAN!

s1c said...

Ish - Are you taping any of the Uncle Joe and Brother Dave broadcasts?

Loved Joe's call on MBM's Walk Off so was wondering.

s1c said...

Weaver already over 70 pitches!! Keep the pressure on boys!!!

Amy said...

Ok, Schill, knock them dead.

L-girl said...

Uhhh... was it something I said? :)

ish said...

Ish - Are you taping any of the Uncle Joe and Brother Dave broadcasts?

I am taping the highlights that they play at the end of the games. And of course, if something big happens I'll tape that too. So far, I have highlights of game 1, the 9th inning of game 2, Manny's interview, the highlights, and Joe and Dave's wrap-up at the very end.

I'm working on making a nice postseason package at the end.

I also have John Sterling's call of Pronk's walk-off single in Cleveland.

Jere said...

I have Ken Coleman calling an Ellis Burks home run circa '88 if anyone wants that:)

s1c said...

So I'll take that as a Yes Ish!!!

Would love to get that Joe call. Deep into the night!! Loved it!!!

Jere said...

Great inning Schill!

ish said...

I have Ken Coleman calling an Ellis Burks home run circa '88 if anyone wants that:)

Oooh, that's cool!

Somebody made a montage of the 2004 season with Joe and Jerry. I had it for awhile but lost it sometime along the way.

thatdietcokegirl said...

sweet, 1-2-3 groundball out inning ;)

Amy said...

Good to see Schilling getting a fast inning and getting our guys back up at bat.

nixon33 said...

good inning, ol' man

ish said...

The only problem is the quality of the audio isn't that terrific. I'm working on it, though.

s1c said...

Man !!!!ocoC really, really sucks vs Weaver.

L-girl said...

SLUUUUUGO

nixon33 said...

keep yr attention n lugo, weav. meanwhile back at the plate its 3-0

s1c said...

Ok Dustin, if its close you better swing.

runge doesn't like getting shown up

L-girl said...

i love watching a weaver meltdown. comes complete with The Face. (see glossary.)

thatdietcokegirl said...

dammit.

s1c said...

fragging kidding me.

not what I wanted to see from youk.

OK schill two more innings just like the last one.

Amy said...

I don't see a reference for the Face in the glossary, but I do remember good old Jeff Weaver flipping out when he would start giving up hits.

L-girl said...

Face: it might be under Derek Lowe face.

L-girl said...

Yup, I just checked. Allan has it under Derek Lowe Face. I just call it The Face.

nixon33 said...

SIDDDOWN!

L-girl said...

I once heard Jeff Weaver being interviewed after giving up a ton of HRs. He said, I realize now what I'm doing wrong, it's ok whatever happens, I just shouldn't show it on my face.

THAT'S what he thought the problem was?? His facial expressions?! Try not giving up 5 home runs in a game, Jeff!

And that he would actually say that to the media... amazing.

s1c said...

Weaver - 89 pitches after 5.0
Schill - 56 pitches after 4.1

I like it , I like it.

Amy said...

Yeah, I see it. But I LIKED Derek Lowe. Weaver---my husband used to cringe every time he pitched. And I would just lap it up.

thatdietcokegirl said...

found the glossary link for anyone interested.

s1c said...

This at bat is where Schilling needs that big splitter.

s1c said...

Finally. Jeez I am starting to really hate Figgins.

Amy said...

Come on, Schill. TBS says this is the biggest at bat of the game for you. Hmmph. Showed them!

nixon33 said...

SCHILL

s1c said...

Yeah baby!!!

redsock said...

Sticking my head in for 5 seconds to say I love that hot Dominican Dong on Dong action.

Back later!

Amy said...

More runs, please.

Amy said...

A BB for Papi. Now Manny, don't let Scioscia play any games with you. (Though that one was not intentional.) Bye, Weaver.

nixon33 said...

bye bye baby weaver

i hate that mota guy (or as redsock call him "tbs' tina")

L-girl said...

Poor Allan is missing this whole game! It's the only game he wasn't able to work his schedule around. I told him if he had to miss a game, better in the DS than the rest of October. Of course it still sucks.

Amy said...

Yes, that's too bad for Allan---and for us! I miss his reassurances, though we haven't needed them so far. Let's keep it that way.

Ofer said...

Papi's OBP on the series so far? .833. Not too shabby...

phrenile said...

Poor Allan. Hopefully there won't be any more DS games for him to miss.

s1c said...

I told him if he had to miss a game, better in the DS than the rest of October. Of course it still sucks

True, oh so true!

The only bad thing about next weekend as far as I am concerned is the whole missing games in the ALCS.

Ofer said...

Angels' broadcasters not sounding very hopeful- "if the Angels somehow manage to get to a game 4, they will be facing Josh Beckett again."

Then again, I don't blame them. 9 in a row, here we come

s1c said...

71 pitches for Schilling. I haven't seen any action in the pen though. Hope Francona is aware that big daddy starts struggling around 80 pitches.

Amy said...

I have to believe this is Schilling's last inning. He's looking damn good, though.

s1c said...

More runs please. More runs please!!!

Amy said...

Another nice inning from Schilling. Will he come back? I bet that was still under 80 pitches.

nixon33 said...

this is one of those games where it seems like its 7-0

Woti-woti said...

The Sox DO have 7 other guys hitting, right? Come on boys, runs please. It's OK kick them and not give them any hope whatsoever.

phrenile said...

Would Francona really pull Schilling after 79 pitches, though? He has a quicker hook in the playoffs than in the regular season, but I wonder whether it's *that* much quicker.

Amy said...

Sooo---who's pitching the 7th inning? Schill still has his jacket on his arm and taking notes.

nixon33 said...

schill coming out again with a SHORT LEASH

s1c said...

He will send Curt out for the seventh but he better have people warming up. If you look at Curts outings since his rehab, he has struggled starting at the 80-86 pitch area. See last MFY game for a classic example.

As for the hook, it better be in his hand.

David said...

These guys do realize its only a 2-0 game, right?

redsock said...

I'm back!!!

redsock said...

mdc and jeemer up

nixon33 said...

WELCOM BACK REDSOCK

s1c said...

MDC and Jeemer up!

Good!!!

nixon33 said...

almost ococ

thatdietcokegirl said...

ruh-oh. he had it...mrrrrr...

thatdietcokegirl said...

he's at like 85 or so pitches.

L-girl said...

I haven't been able to follow the game for the last few innings but I'd sure like to see some more Sox runs...

nixon33 said...

DROIA!

s1c said...

91 pitches for Schilling. c'mon big daddy

s1c said...

Yesss!! One more out here Curt!!

redsock said...

POPUP -- YESSSSSSSSSS

now get the 3rd out and put another bagel on the board.

Ofer said...

Alright! One more to preserve the shutout

Amy said...

Welcome back, RS and L-girl. Let's get this last out, Schill!

nixon33 said...

COME ON SCHILL

thatdietcokegirl said...

late-lol @ 'that hot Dominican dong on dong action.'

ok back to fingernail biting.

ish said...

BIG K FOR BIG SCHILL!!!

phrenile said...

100 pitches. Brilliant.

nixon33 said...

SCHILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

uproarious YEAH!!!!!!!!!

whew. ok now i can move around.

s1c said...

The K!!!!!

Yeah boy!!!!

Schill dawg!!!

Big Daddy!!!!

FY!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

napoli -- helpless vs the split.

100 pitches - 0 runs.

Amy said...

YES! I love SChilling. Does anyone think he should be number 2 in the ALCS? I know he doesn't have the power, but he sure has the control.

Ofer said...

100 pitches - 0 runs.

And a 76% strike rate...

nixon33 said...

gagne in the 8th (kidding)

Amy said...

So who's up for the 8th? MDC? Okajima? Gagne? Can we please score some more runs?

thatdietcokegirl said...

no gagne?

David said...

Did the ump just punch him out on the 2nd strike?

redsock said...

DIM-MER!
DIM-MER!
DIM-MER!
DIM-MER!
DIM-MER!
DIM-MER!

:>)

...

so can billy match curt's performance??

Amy said...

OK, leadoff guy on. I want a run. Or more.

L-girl said...

hi amy, but i'm not back, unfortunately. :)

redsock said...

i say mdc - he threw 17 pitches versus 24 for jeemer.

Jay said...

I had to listen to some of this game on radio - first time I heard a mainstream broadcaster point out that Ortiz's year was actually not a "down" year if "fans would look past the home runs". Refreshing.

Also, Go SOX! Brilliant setting of the rotation (so far) by Tito. Two more innings.

thatdietcokegirl said...

Did the ump just punch him out on the 2nd strike?

lol no, but joe c (on weei) just noted that his strike call resembled a ring-up strike call gesture. a bit zealous.

Amy said...

Sorry, Laura. Things busy at work? Silly law firms.

s1c said...

So who's up for the 8th? MDC? Okajima? Gagne? Can we please score some more runs?

Uncle joe said that pen is empty.

Schilling will probably start the 8th with bot warming up!!!

L-girl said...

Busy at work, and it's Thanksgiving weekend here, too! The nerve.

I'm happy I got to see the BTB dongs, plus some great innings from Schilling.

The important thing is that we complete the sweep!!!

Amy said...

I am truly hoping that Billy pitches his final game and loses. I am so tired of his ego. (But somehow, Curt's doesn't bother me.)

Amy said...

Go, DUSTY!! ROY! ROY!!

ish said...

3-0 RED SOX!!!!

YEAH PEDROIA! We don't need no stinking bunt!

Jay said...

WOW. I thought he was nailed for sure. Send him in Kim!!!!

nixon33 said...

ROY!
i like the TBS GUY "pedroia is safe the ball pops loose"

redsock said...

FUCK YEAH, IT'S FUCK YEAH

phrenile said...

Woohoo. Pedroia needed that hit (his second this series).

ish said...

Sac fly! 4-0!!!!

Ofer said...

ROY!!

How close was that play at the plate?

Amy said...

I love when they listen to me and score more runs. :)

L-girl said...

Oh shit, how'd the 3rd run score???

s1c said...

Yeah baby!!!!

More runs asked for, more runs given. Its almost biblibal (sorry L-girl).

L-girl said...

Uh, make that 3rd & 4th run?!?!

Somebody catch me up real quick? Thanks.

ish said...

How close was that play at the plate?

Pretty close. Throw went to the 1st base side of home, Lugo went in the other side, feet first.

nixon33 said...

very close play at the plate, ofer

Amy said...

Thanksgiving today? Tomorrow? Do Canadians eat turkey also?

Jay said...

Lugo scored from 1B on a double to left by Pedroia. Throw was a bit off, but it was ballsy to send him with no outs. Pedroia to third on the throw. YOUUUUUK Sac Fli.

s1c said...

L-girl - Walk, double by pedroia with lugo making a big slide, and pedroia taking third and then the Sac Fly!!!

L-girl said...

Amy, no time for Canadian class today...

Amy said...

Third run: Pedroia long hit to left field, Lugo scored.

4th run: Sac fly by Youk. (Pedroia was on third.)

redsock said...

tbs: "no expression on theo's face"

he looked very serene and slightly beaming to me.

L-girl said...

Thank you Jay and s1c!!!

sweet sweep :)

Amy said...

Amy, no time for Canadian class today...

LOL! I can look it up...

phrenile said...

I think Papi lowered his OPS from 2.500 to 2.418 with that single. What a slacker.

L-girl said...

and thanks amy too :)

didn't see that before

chief said...

LBJ in the game!

Ofer said...

Pretty close. Throw went to the 1st base side of home, Lugo went in the other side, feet first.

very close play at the plate, ofer


Thanks. No way of knowing, since the Angels broadcaster seems to have no control on when he raises his voice. Completely random.

Amy said...

Manny walks. Do I hear "Let's go, Red Sox" chants in Anaheim/LA/California? Or is my hearing going?

s1c said...

LBJ in for MBM!!!!

Papi and MBM heating up at the right time.

Fill this prescription doctor!!!!

redsock said...

chants were loud after peewee's double too.

Amy said...

Hey, Laura, hope you can tune in. Your boy is running for Manny.

nixon33 said...

been hearing those chants all game

s1c said...

Doctor delivers!!!!

phrenile said...

Teeheehee.

Amy said...

Nice hit, Doc! Now I think I can breathe....even me!

ish said...

DR. DOUBLES!!!!!

chief said...

Doc Doubles.

L-girl said...

thanks amy :)

Ofer said...

I think Papi lowered his OPS from 2.500 to 2.418 with that single. What a slacker.

Lowered his OPS with a single- I love it!

And the Doctor lives up to his name!

redsock said...

the doctor is smokin!!!

Amy said...

OK, guess my hearing is going. But really, I just have volume low since I don't really need to hear the announcers.

ish said...

Manny walks. Do I hear "Let's go, Red Sox" chants in Anaheim/LA/California? Or is my hearing going?

Dave O'Brien said on a couple of occasions that he could hear them faintly. But when Youk comes up, the Youk chants are easier to hear.

nixon33 said...

doctah

thatdietcokegirl said...

happy happy joy joy!! *frolicks in gritty kitty litter* :)))))))

phrenile said...

Doctors shouldn't smoke.

So do you bring Curt out for the eighth now? What if we add another couple runs first?

redsock said...

hilarious.

schilling gets out of the 7th and it is clear to everyone that the angels are going down.

so the sox decide to rub it in with 3 (so far) in the 8th:

walk
double
sac fly
single
walk
double
...

hahaha -- fuck you angels!!

L-girl said...

love those dugout shots. now that's demoralizing!!

Ofer said...

Looks like we won't have any drama tonight. Fine by me.

redsock said...

Time for you, O.F. Drew

s1c said...

ON FIRE!!!!!! was not on fire but its 6-0

Amy said...

Oh, WOW! HOW the hell did LBJ do that??

redsock said...

hahaha

is posada catching for laa also?

thatdietcokegirl said...

ells was like the bionic woman going over that plate.

L-girl said...

like many people, i picked the sox in 4. i guess i'm too negative, underestimating this amazing team!!!

phrenile said...

Gotta wonder at what point Tek should consider bunting.

ish said...

Ted Robinson: All of a sudden, the Red Sox fans are getting better seats.

L-girl said...

ells was like the bionic woman

:-D

nixon33 said...

fucking JD DREW ofer
(hee hee, kidding)

ish said...

GAP SHOT! THERRRRRRRE'S A GAP SHOT!

phrenile said...

Nevermind. Thanks, Tek.

Amy said...

All right, TEK! A double. My day is perfect. :)))

redsock said...

loyal angels fans deciding to "beat the traffic"

L-girl said...

pile it on, boys, pile it on!

ish said...

Looks like we won't have any drama tonight. Fine by me.

We won't, but there's another game to be played.

Ofer said...

Fans starting to leave the stadium... can't say I blame them. Maybe next time you'll get the MFY, Angels.

Wow, it's getting ridiculous. Mercy rule.

ish said...

TEEING OFF ON THE ANGELS.

s1c said...

Amy's boy Tek comes through, and !!!!ocoC.

nixon33 said...

this is unfair!
WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

phrenile said...

ROFLMAO.

Amy said...

I don't think Schilling will come back, but maybe Gagne. Don't we have a fat ass lead now? HOLY CRAP! It's 9-0!!

thatdietcokegirl said...

like many people, i picked the sox in 4. i guess i'm too negative, underestimating this amazing team!!!

didn't most of us? me included.

sweet sweet sweet 9-0!!

and the wheels are off and rolling in the streets.

chief said...

IMPLOSION.

Good thing they handed out those stupid little noise makers.

phrenile said...

Aww man, Lugo makes the second out in his second at bat for the inning. What a squander.

s1c said...

L-girl to reinforce your earlier statements. Look for the last post by someone!!!

L-girl said...

now it will be up to cleveland to go for the sweep! how cool, 4 potential sweeps in the DS, 3 clocked in so far...

nixon33 said...

HEY GUYS SAVE SOME RUNS FOR CC AND CARMONA
hahahahahaha

Amy said...

Lugo scored the first run, Phrenille, didn't he?

redsock said...

I think we need some insurance in the 9th inning!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

s1c, hm, interesting, i'll check it out after the game.

Amy said...

I guessed four games also. I always like to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. So for me, the worst would have been winning in 4. Who says I am negative? :)

thatdietcokegirl said...

I think we need some insurance in the 9th inning!!!!!!!!!!


ahaha!!

L-girl said...

that is, after we finish SWEEPING THE ANGELS IN THE DIVISION SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

we might see dimmer after all.

(or lester)

s1c said...

9-0 I don't care who we see, this baby is done. Put a fork in it!!!

nixon33 said...

yup, im all gloom and doom

thatdietcokegirl said...

it's oki!!

redsock said...

jeemer was warm - so here he is.

lyndon in left.

L-girl said...

9-0 I don't care who we see

as long as we see cleveland in the ALCS!

phrenile said...

Yeah he did, Amy. Youk made the first out on his sac fly; Lugo made the second, not *his* second. I'm just pretending to whine.

thatdietcokegirl said...

gagne and paps warming in the pen.

chief said...

"Red Sox bludgeon them with a seven run top of the 8th."

Good choice of words, Ted.

redsock said...

Gagne to nail down the sweep! I like it.

Amy said...

That's ok, Oki. You have a big cushion, just stay calm.

redsock said...

they had a guy at 2nd with 0 outs last inning too. pfft.

Amy said...

Gotcha, Phrenille. I misunderstood your reference to "second" out.

phrenile said...

Jacoby being Manny?

thatdietcokegirl said...

nice catch wonderboy!!

L-girl said...

nice catch :)

Amy said...

Nice leaping catch by LBJ!

nixon33 said...

LBJ with the jump-shot catch!

David said...

LBJ being MBM?

nixon33 said...

i like mike soscia, feel a bit for him. his team never had a chance

s1c said...

Why I like Schilling!!

Post season - 16 games 9-2 with a 1.93 ERA.

Big Game!!

Amy said...

Two down, Oki. Just one more. Keep the shutout going.

redsock said...

sooooooo ... how are things over at halos heaven?

Sarah Gates said...

Hooray! I'm home in time to hang out with you guys for the sweep. Got in the car right around the home runs, but I had to go to Brooklyn and ended up listening to the game through the top of the 8th in the car.
