G10: Red Sox 12, Tigers 6

Tigers  - 000 200 130 -  6  10  0
Red Sox - 000 400 44x - 12 13 1
Very nice to see the Red Sox respond every time the Tigers scored some runs.

In addition to 13 hits, the Red Sox drew nine walks. Seven of those BBs came around to score.

Drew was 3-for-3 with a BBI and a sac fly; he scored twice and drove in two runs. Pedroia singled twice, walked, and scored twice. Ortiz walked twice and scored twice. Crisp singled, doubled and walked. Yook doubled in two runs, walked and scored twice. Manny had a two-run double and scored twice.

Wakefield battled through five innings (5-3-2-5-5; pitch countby innings: 22-22-27 23-14 = 108). Sexy Lips began the eighth with an 8-3 lead, but he allowed a walk, single, walk, single, single, before getting a 6U-3 double play on a nice play from Lugo. At that point, Boston led 8-6 and Ordonez was the tying run at the plate. Papelbon came in and got the third out. The Sox tacked on another four-spot in their half of the eighth and Bot mopped up.

***

Nate Robertson (9.00, 46 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.50, 95 ERA+)

Lineups inside: Yook at 3B, Casey at 1B, Crisp in CF, and Cash at C.

I thought we're supposed to blame BBellhorn.

Jere said...

I think a scrotum bunt is way dirtier than a scrotum fly. (I hope this is comment 401 so it's right on top...)

Patrick said...

I like the word sack. Though I do like the abbrev. scrot.

sac fly = free scrot?

redsock said...

Sox have seen 212 pitches in 8 innings.

Me fooking likey.

redsock said...

I never carry a pen. I'm afraid I might puncture my scrotum.

L-girl said...

A POX ON ALL THIS SCROTUM TALK

Jere said...

crap, 4-1 yanks. didn't even know it had started again

Patrick said...

I never carry a pen. I'm afraid I might puncture my scrotum.

LOL!

L-girl said...

My #1 favourite Seinfeld episode.

SoSock said...

Wow, just got in - the earliest I've gotten home all week.
Glad to know the game is going so well that all the conversation is about Jew-Day-ica and Gen-i-talia.
Now if I could just get my LL team to start playing up to THEIR potential.....

Jere said...

yanks did the same thing as us. went Oka-Joba with 2 outs in the 7th.

Jere said...

you don't wanna get pox on your scrotum

redsock said...

GEORGE: Where the hell is this car, Kramer?

KRAMER: It's got to be here.

ELAINE: Why are they using so many colors? And the numbers go up to forty.

JERRY: Maybe it's not on this level.

GEORGE: What?

JERRY: There are four different levels. Maybe we're on the wrong level. How long was the escalator ride up?

ELAINE: It felt like a couple of levels.

JERRY: You should always carry a pad and pen.

GEORGE: I can't carry a pen. I'm afraid I'll puncture my scrotum.

L-girl said...

But I thought using both those words in one sentence might squick you guys enough to stop talking about it.

redsock said...

GEORGE: I can't carry a pen. I'm afraid I'll puncture my scrotum.

Man, if that's not a Larry Davidism, I don't know what is.

ish said...

Squick, pox, scrotum, and Bazardo.

Must be the new Joy of Sox legal team.

L-girl said...

Are they hiring weekend word processors?

Jere said...

edgar really guards his scrotum with that closed stance

Amy said...

Yes, this place reads like a boys locker room in my junior high!

Not that I was ever in there. :)

That garage episode is a true classic. My favorite, though, is the trip to Florida with Elaine on the sofa bed.

Jere said...

the nesn sound effect coincided with that hit nicely

L-girl said...

STELLA!!!!!

That's a great ep too.

ish said...

Seinfeld, FOUR!

L-girl said...

And we win! Very nice.

Amy said...

Game over!

Does Pap get a save for this?

redsock said...

Water.

Jere said...

this is f'd up. That's ridiculous. If a pitcher throws a pitch 95 or more they make a fucking ray gun sound?! On the pitch!

L-girl said...

Chinese restaurant ep is very similar to parking garage, only parking garage has all four of them, Chinese rest had no Kramer. But they're both brilliant.

s1c said...

well, back to learning interesting facts abour oatmeal, oh yeah, we won!!!

Jere and Amy, have fun tomorrow, be sure and bring your JOS signs!!

L-girl said...

oh yeah, have fun you guys. I hope you get to meet. We'll miss you in the thread.

Joe Grav said...

Dirty Water.

Jere said...

Pap does get the save.

Jere said...

Thanks, everybody. Will try to have fun freezing and soaking! (And taking the box seats of the wusses who leave early!)

ish said...

Goodnight everyone!

Amy said...

A JOS sign! Yes, I will make one. (Not too big---I want to be sure our friends invite us back!)

Watch over the Sox dugout.

Jere, send me your cell.

L-girl said...

"Jere send me your cell."

Heh. Jere's cell, eh?

Jere said...

leadoff hit for KC in 8th

Jere said...

AMy's still learning!

AMy, I will email you....

Amy said...

So Pap gets the save even though we ended up six runs up. I can never seem to remember that rule. Is it because the score was close when he came in? Or because he pitched enough outs?

Amy said...

Heh. Jere's cell, eh?

What am I missing here? He doesn't have a cell? It sounds like a pickup line?

Amy said...

Hmm, I think now I remember him saying in his interview with Allan that he had no cell....

Jere said...

1st and 3rd two out for KC off Joba

redsock said...

Is it because the score was close when he came in?

Yep, tying run at the plate when he came in.

If the score is out of hand, a pitcher would have to pitch the final 3 innings to get a save.

If you recall, a Texas pitcher pitched the final 3 innings of that 30-3 win over the Orioles last year and got a save!!!

Jays try to rally but lose in 12 as Foulke shuts the door. Swept by A's.

Jere said...

KC doesn't score. Amy: When he came in, it was a save situation. He didn't blow it, so he gets the save. At least I think that's what went on here.

I just have a problem with people using pussy to mean anything negative.

Cause it's not, you know. :)




I hear that....pussy good...:)

I apologize in advance.......

One of glaring differences between the red sox and the yankees the last few years......our bench is made of guys would could start for most teams, and the yankees bench is made up has-beens and never will bees.......

redsock said...

#91 pitching for KC.

redsock said...

I hear that....pussy good...:)

Did you read my book? During his Red Sox days, the always-mature Babe Ruth, if asked how things were going, would say -- instead of "Pretty good, pretty good" -- "Pussy good, pussy good."

redsock said...

wait a minnit

#91 is hideo nomo!

redsock said...

Slappy and Dumbo just hit dongs (b2b?) and the MFY are up 6-1 in the top of the 9th.

Bah -- off to watch Futurama and then to bed.

Jere said...

OJ Rifkin ep on right now!

L-girl said...

"What am I missing here? He doesn't have a cell? It sounds like a pickup line?"

In case anyone checks back on this, there was a conversation on wmtc about cell phones. I was writing about wanting or not wanting to buy a new cell, consumer pressure, advertising and such. Jere said he doesn't have a cell, doesn't want one, has no intentions of getting one.

It did not sound like a pick-up line. :)
