G15: Red Sox 5, Spiders 3

Red Sox   - 000 010 202 - 5 13  1
Cleveland - 000 020 100 - 3 8 1
Once again, the Red Sox get some 10 o'clock lightning and come from behind to win.

The big hit in the seventh was a two-run single from Lowrie, who also drove in a run with a fielder's choice in the fifth. With one out in the ninth, Jason Varitek (pinch-hitting for Kevin Cash) hit an opposite field home run to snap a 3-3 tie. Crisp singled to left and Pedroia doubled to right-center. After Ortiz popped to second and Manny was walked intentionally, Youkilis stroked a single to left. Ococ scored, but Pedroia was tagged out trying to score (and missing the plate).

Jeemer nailed it down, striking out Hafner and Martinez on four pitches each, and getting Peralta to foul out to Ellsbury in right. Jacoby made a nifty catch, half-leaping into the stands and robbing a fan of the ball!

Lugo was 3-for-4, Pedroia was 3-for-5, Yook was 2-for-4 with a walk, Ellsbury singled and walked twice. Manny was 0-for-3 with a BBI and HBP.

Ortiz's 5 PAs: GIDP453, single to RF, F7, F8, P4.

Toronto whipped Baltimore 11-3 (and New York held on to beat Tampa 5-3), so we are now in first place!
Red Sox    9   6   --
Blue Jays 8 6 .5
Orioles 8 6 .5
Yankees 8 7 1
Rays 6 8 2.5
***

Tim Wakefield (3.27, 133 ERA+) / Paul Byrd (11.05, 38 ERA+)

Jed Lowrie makes his major league debut tonight at third base.

Coco Crisp, David Ortiz and DeMarlo Hale will all wear #42 in recognition of Jackie Robinson, who made his debut 61 years ago today. Crisp: "Also, Larry Doby, you can't forget about him. He was the first in the American League."

L-girl said...

What a night for that kid. Very exciting. Is his family there, do we know?

redsock said...

Parents are home (in Oregon?). They will be in NYC tomorrow -- for Jed's 24th b-day! And at the Toilet.

Jere said...

Cash gets the "bunt" "down."

redsock said...

lugo is 3-for-3!

s1c said...

Ca ching moves the runners on that baltimore chop!!!

Time for ocoC to make them pay!!!

L-girl said...

What's up with the exciting rookies from Oregon???

We used to have a gamethreader from Oregon who boasted about Ellsbury, a young guy... doesn't seem to be around this year.

L-girl said...

I love the "ca ching" nickname, but maybe it should be spelled "ka ching".

Jere said...

just needed a fly ball there Coco, terrible.

redsock said...

fuck me < fuck yeah

Jere said...

Hazel: "The NFL releases the schedule and virtually guarantees the Pats a 4-0 start." Uh....after what just happened, is it the smartest move to "guarantee" even one win, let alone four, for the Pats?

s1c said...

Ka ching!!! I like it!!!

L-girl said...

now seems as good a time as any...

the answer is fernando tatis.

L-girl said...

moo

Jere said...

Tatis. Nice. Still need the A's guy from 1915. Don't know if I'm gonna get that one either....

ish said...

moo

Ribbit.

L-girl said...

baaaa

redsock said...

September 8, 1916: Wally Schang of the Philadelphia Athletics became the first player to hit home runs from both sides of the plate in the same game.

He was the catcher for the 1918 Red Sox -- and one of the many Sox who were sent to the Yankees in the early 20s.

L-girl said...

Moo was for Hafner, who is Heifer, which is a cow.

Jere said...

9/8/16: my negative 59th birthday.

redsock said...

lopez -- FINISH HIM

Jere said...

is this a 10ski yet or what?

s1c said...

Crap, lets get this last out.

MDC time!

Jere said...

MDCops

redsock said...

10 pit there

clev tv guys starting to root a little harder for their team. "that's it!" "Keep on runnin'!"

redsock said...

L-girl said...

Lord Lynch said...

Here, at 2:40 a.m., I have awoken....

I doubt I'll be long...

Good luck MdC. Do not remember Frank Thomas...

Jere said...

MD Cops= Dr. Swine

L-girl said...

The Lord wakes up in the middle of the night and staggers to his computer, clicks on JoS...

redsock said...

WHERE INT HE FUCK WAS THAT PITCH???

3-1??? fuck you it's 2-2

Jere said...

Tehse ptiches aer srtikes!

Lord Lynch said...

MLB TV first, then JoS.

Through my blurry eyes, is this a small strike zone?

Jere said...

that really frosts my ass

redsock said...

shit

s1c said...

Frag me, a hit by pitch.

Is it my imagination or is Tito doing a lot more pacing in the dugout this year?

Lord Lynch said...

Hellfire.

Get to first base, you wimp.

redsock said...

time to smoke assdrubbing.

Amy said...

SHit. Where's the MDC of last night?

Lord Lynch said...

That could have been a whole lot worse.

Trying to take a positive out of it.

redsock said...

every time the sox score tonight, they give 'em right back.

sox - 000 010 2
cle - 000 020 1

Jack Marshall said...

Ridiculous strike zone tonight, no?

Jere said...

TB down 5-3 going to ninth.

ish said...

Luckily it isn't as hard to score in baseball than it is in hockey...

Manny's up, against Jensen Lewis. I forsee a baseball being dented.

redsock said...

I forsee a baseball being dented.

And the skull of a fan sitting in CF bleachers.

Jere said...

Jim Jensen in.

L-girl said...

I'm out of the thread for the night. Enjoy the win! See you all mid-game tomorrow.

Jere said...

Manny gets nailed. This is Warner Wolf. Jim?

redsock said...

make him pay, yook!! sweaty-style.

s1c said...

Ouch. That had to hurt. Lets go Youk!!!

Jere said...

YOu can't leave! The CBS-2 circa '84 talk has just begun!!!

ish said...

It's like Manny knew it was payback, and accepted it.

s1c said...

Youk!!!

Jere said...

YOuuuuuuk, half-dong! Scrotum fly will give us th elead.

Patrick said...

YOOOOUUK

ish said...

See?

No worries.

phrenile said...

Came home just in time for the MDC-HBP run. What's Youk's hitting streak now?

Jere said...

THE RESPECT THIS MAN COMMANDS

Patrick said...

Dangle some sweet Navajo scrot!

s1c said...

Walking LBJ to get to the guy who is 3-3 tonight?

I sure hope this back fires on wedgie poo!

Lord Lynch said...

In Julio's hands it is.....

Joe Grav said...

mark it down - jacoby's first IBB?

redsock said...

Dangle some sweet Navajo scrot!

Laura says she's puking! :>)

Jere said...

IBB/BBI for Jacobo Arbenz, and now Lugo, loaded, 1 out

Patrick said...

Glad I'm contributing to this blog.

Joe Grav said...

Fuck

s1c said...

Freaking kidding me!!!

Bastards!!!

redsock said...

After a 3-3 night, Lugo back to being fucking Lugo

Patrick said...

WAAAAAA!!!!

Amy said...

Oh fuck that. Another DP with bases loaded. And it wasn't even Tek.

Jere said...

I'm not saying anything.

About the shitty Lugo who I wish was not on my team.

Lord Lynch said...

I'd much rather trust a piranha with my fingers.

Nice one Julio.

redsock said...

Clev TV: "AND A FIST PUMP FOR JENSEN LEWIS!!"

(eye rolling)

s1c said...

Ah, good, looks like the game is back on NESN instead of plus!

We need MDC to hold them here!

Jere said...

Twice now, a guy on third, less than 2 out, and no fly ball. Swing up! FLy out means a run. Pop out means you at least avoid a DP.

s1c said...

Manny makes the running grab, actually that looked more like a saunter to me Donny boy!

redsock said...

Lowrie dong to start the 9th?

Jere said...

Thanks s1c. No more MUFFLED NESN Plus sound.

Jere said...

Lowrie: Dong hourly. Like a clock, motherfucker.

s1c said...

No more MUFFLED NESN Plus sound.

After tonight will probably only have one more game for the B's this year. Oh well.

Jere said...

This Cleveland crowd is so unresponsive to that "Car Wash" hand clap drum beat.

s1c said...

Tito pacing again in the dugout. Sit down Tito, you're making me nervous.

Patrick said...

UGHHH. MDC! Prove to them we have the better bullepen. I believe in you!

redsock said...

mdc a bit off tonight

Jere said...

that was weird

s1c said...

Lucked out there, that was a foul ball.

s1c said...

The battery (AA) coming into the game!!

Jere said...

Tommy Aaron in.

redsock said...

clev tv is sure it was fair.

and here comes the aaardsman.

redsock said...

these morons acting like this is the way manny pitches all the time -- "needs to throw strikes, harness his fb bla bla bla":

ignorant fucksticks.

Jere said...

I think Aardsma is Pig Latin.

We go to the ninth, tied.

s1c said...

Runs, now, we need runs!!!

Patrick said...

YAHOOOO!

s1c said...

clev tv is sure it was fair

Pretty close, but it looked foul to me.

Jere said...

Carlos Pena tying run up, 2 outs in 9th for TB against Mo

s1c said...

Carlos Pena up with man on vs Rivera with 2 outs. Would love to see him hit a dong!!!

Jere said...

ground out, Yanks win

Amy said...

Hmmm, K. Tek will hit a dong?

s1c said...

Well, Lowrie looked like a rookie in that at bat.

c'mon Tek!!!

redsock said...

why the fuck didn't tito bat tek over cash with 2 on in the 7th? jesus.

ish said...

Hmmm, K. Tek will hit a dong?

YES!!!!!

Amy said...

Stop swinging at anything.

I TOLD YOU!!!!

redsock said...

CAPTAIN DONG!!!!!!!!!!!

Jere said...

PINCH HIT DONG TEK!!! Opposite field!!

phrenile said...

Tek's still not dead yet.

s1c said...

TEK DONG!!!

Bot better be up and ready!!!

Patrick said...

DING!

Jere said...

PINCH HIT DONG TEK!!! Opposite field!!

Amy said...

And I didn't even have on my new Tek t-shirt...

ish said...

Looks like Jeemer to close.

Jere said...

Oka up. No Pap cuz he pitched last night.

s1c said...

ocoC!!!

Tack some more on boys!!!

Jeemer not bot?

Jere said...

"DING!"

Stop dat.

ish said...

Looks like a good move to me. Give Bot the night. Jeemer hasn't thrown in awhile.

Amy said...

We are going to WIN!

phrenile said...

Is "Lewis" English for "Borowski"?

s1c said...

Yeah boy, FY!!!

Jere said...

2nd and third. GET ONE MORE minimum.

ish said...

FY with a double!!!

Maybe a large, Dominican dong to follow?

Amy said...

Gee, blogger ate my comment about my lucky Tek t-shirt. Hmm.

Jere said...

not walkin Ortiz

ish said...

Heh. You've stopped modding?

Amy said...

Papi. Do it. Drive in two.

Amy said...

I like this no delay.

Jere said...

IBB

ish said...

Castig: "Will Eric Wedge pull a Joe Girardi?"

Nope.

ish said...

Castig: "Wedge knows better."

Amy said...

Hmmm, where did Laura and Allan go? Leaving us alone to play here unmoderated??

s1c said...

Youk, they are showing you no respect, so make them pay!!!

Amy said...

Detroit afraid of the bad man Manny.

Jere said...

Terrible job by NESN to not tell casual viewers who's coming up at any point during the intentional walk.

Amy said...

Cmon Youk. Get us some insurance.

redsock said...

i'm here!

laura in bed with tv on.

yook with sox on pond.

s1c said...

Youk!!!

FY what are you doing?

Jere said...

Okay, 5-3 going bottom 9.

ish said...

Aw man. I was hoping Pedroia was going to make Martinez chase him around the ballpark.

phrenile said...

Walking Manny doesn't work either.

Amy said...

YES!! At least one insurance run...

Thanks, Tek. You made us happy.

Jere said...

Hale wasn't stopping him.

Patrick said...

MAN RAM! MAN RAM! WE LOVE YOU!

Jack Marshall said...

Boy, the New York writers are right. That strategy is a gem....

Jere said...

yeah, I wanted the American Gladiators thing between Dustin and the catcher.

s1c said...

Ah the crazy father commercial. I love that commercial!!!

ish said...

Hale with an E-Z Pass moment.

Patrick said...

Oh wait! That was youk, wasn't it?

nick said...

hey all.

just got in from a meeting. turned on the TV after the 1st pitch of Ortiz's at bat.

Jere said...

Krazee Eyes Killa is on the State Farm commercial now

ish said...

Jeemer for the save.

Joe sounds worried.

I'm not.

Jere said...

Hey, Jensen for them, Mr. Jee for us. Where's Carol Martin??

Amy said...

Ok, Oki. Be the closer.

redsock said...

why can't these clev announcers understand?

YOU CANNOT STOP US!!!!!!!!

ish said...

2 oots away from the top of the AL east.

Jere said...

Strike 3 called! Terrible job, Heif'

Amy said...

One away!

Hi, Nick.

redsock said...

buh bye pronK

Patrick said...

Yahoo is faster than mlb audio by 1-2 pitches.

Patrick said...

You guys seeing the H category? 13 hits for Boston. I LOVE IT. This team is looking like we could be MONSTERS this year.

Jere said...

patrick, where are you again?

Jere said...

K!

ish said...

KK!!!

Amy said...

2 K!

s1c said...

Back to back K's!!!

Who does Jeemer think he is, the bot?

one more baby, one more!!!

Patrick said...

I'm in southern New Hampshire in a little town called Kingston.

Amy said...

See, we need that roster. Where is Patrick?

redsock said...

patrick, where are you again?

if you guys went with the roster idea, we'd all know these things.

Jere said...

So why not listen on a regular radio?

Amy said...

near Ish in southern ME

ish said...

Who does Jeemer think he is, the bot?

Obie said something like that. "Okajima doing his best impression of Papelbon."

redsock said...

amy - :>)

Jere said...

Hey! I never heard about any roster idea! I love it already!

s1c said...

Finally, Tito sits down in the dug out.

Lord Lynch said...

Finish it. I need my sleep....

Amy said...

Right, the roster. Appa

Holy shit--he caught that!!

ish said...

JACOBY WITH A FANTASTIC CATCH, and a NOOGIE to end the game!

redsock said...

LBJ says eff you jeter!!! with the catch in the seats

Patrick said...

So why not listen on a regular radio?

Because I don't have a radio in this room, as silly as that sounds.

phrenile said...

Water.

nick said...

Dude!!! great grab on the replay.

Jere said...

That's why he's an All-Star. If we'd just play him and lead him off every day.


HAHA! Did you see the fan all pissed?

s1c said...

Light the cigars, this baby is over!!!

First place people!!!

Lord Lynch said...

LBJ, you diamond.

Night night.

3:30 a.m. London time. Signing off.

Amy said...

Yeah, I asked for it since I can never remember where everyone is. Allan asked people to email him with their info, but apparently only I did...

ish said...

Patrick... 96.7 and 104.9 have the game on the FM dial. Also... seeing as you're in Kingston, you might want to try 107.7.

Patrick said...

Water!

Amy said...

I hope Laura saw her boy make that catch. And then...what a smile on his face!

Jere said...

Also, Bath, Maine. But I'm just remembering that from the '85 yearbook. I still can't believe there's a town called Bath.

Patrick said...

I listen to 104.9, just not when I'm in the computer room.

Jack Marshall said...

First place! With Lowell injured and Papi in a slump. Wow.

Jere said...

We win every game in Cleveland this year.

s1c said...

Tek is the player of the game!

Remy - "we wanted to give it to Lowrie, but you just can't overlook this".

Amy said...

Jere, you know that they pronounce it Baaath?

Jere said...

Ayuh.

Amy said...

Tek gets play of the game. Who'd a thunk it?

Amy said...

Ayuh. That was the Maine sound I was trying to describe last night.

redsock said...

I hope Laura saw her boy make that catch.

she did!

s1c said...

Nick Carfado is on the post game show, gaaaaak!!!

Jere said...

Amy--All night with Jed, I wanted to use "ayuh," because the old dude in Pet Sematary says that a lot and his character name was Jed. But I kept forgetting. So thanks for giving me a chance to use it at the last second.
