G29: Red Sox 2, Blue Jays 1

Blue Jays - 000 000 010 - 1  5  0
Red Sox - 000 000 101 - 2 7 0
We're still stuck in the Deadball Era, but the Sox come through with another walk-off victory!

After Ortiz donged to right in the seventh, the Jays tied the game at 1-1 against MDC and Jeemer in the eighth.

In the bottom of the ninth, Ortiz singled and Manny walked. Lowrie pinch-ran for Tiz before Lowell struck out looking. Moss singled to center and Wells (whose bobble last night = a Boston win) threw out Lowrie at the plate. Varitek followed with another hard single to center. Wells came up firing yet again, but this time his throw bounced off the mound, slowing it enough for Manny to slide in with the winner.

The Rays beat the Birds 8-1 (and the Tigers topped the MFY 6-2) and Boston takes sole possession of first place.

Dice: 7-2-0-2-4, 111.

***

Dustin McGowan (4.18, 100 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (3.14, 142 ERA+)

Matsuzaka was scratched his last start, against the Angels, because of the flu. John Farrell:
I think the biggest thing we'll look at as the game unfolds is, 'How is his stamina?' Fortunately, the weather is going to be a little bit cooler, so he's not going to have to deal with heat and humidity, but we've got an idea going in what his pitch count will be.
Boston's last five starters:
                   IP   H   R  BB  SO   GAME
0424 LAA Masterson 6 2 1 4 4 L 5-7
0425 TB Wakefield 6 6 4 5 1 L 4-5 (11)
0426 TB Buchholz 8 3 2 2 9 L 1-2
0427 TB Beckett 7 4 2 1 13 L 0-3
0429 TOR Lester 8 1 0 4 6 W 1-0
Wake's wasn't too pretty, but the kids look alright.

Overall, the staff has allowed only six runs in the last 32 innings. Unfortunately, the Red Sox have scored a paltry three runs over those same 32 innings.
Opp: 000000100000002x00100011x000000000 - 6
Sox: 0100000000010000000000000000000001 - 3

Hokay! The script is rather similar to last night. But I'd rather see a MUMMY dong.

redsock said...

here we go, bitches!

Joe Grav said...

MANNY will send this one deep into the Boston night.

ish said...

And, incidentally, I'm 201. Like last night.

Joe Grav said...

ish #201 again!

redsock said...

ish - damn - 201 stranglehold.

phil said...

redsock said...

maybe he's careful with manny

and it's a doctor walkoff -- CURE

ish said...

Remy noticed Flo limping.

Amy said...

How do these guys run with their pants below their shoes??

Joe Grav said...

that was less of a strike than ball 3

ish said...

Lowrie stretching in the dugout. Ready to run.

ish said...

Lowrie in!

Ortiz out.

Joe Grav said...

ill take it

Joe Grav said...

i disagree with tito's decision here, pain or no pain

Amy said...

Walk. No one out. OK. Puts man in scoring position (if he doesn't have to limp).

redsock said...

jed -- a little texas tea at 2B

lets go doctor. RX

Amy said...

Oh, PR. Forget the limp. I was typing.

ish said...

Radio guys talking bunt.

This is Dr. Doubles. In his MLB career he's had ONE sacrifice bunt.

Be patient, kid.

Patrick said...

Moss is a walkoff machine, he can save us from Timlin time.

Amy said...

I'll take a walk and a sac fly.

ish said...

Ryan has taken a seat. It's up to Downs.

ish said...

awww man! He slid kinda early and died before he reached the plate.

Amy said...

Oh, shit!

Patrick said...

HAHAHAHA, redemption for Wells.

ish said...

Actually the slide was good. Big props to Barajas. Acting like a hockey goalie there.

Joe Grav said...

FUCK. What a throw. What a block. FUCK. Nice call TIto. Papi wolud probably have stayed at 3rd. FUCK

Amy said...

Up to Tek to be the hero tonight.

redsock said...

shit - gotta send him -- fucking blocked off.

ish said...

We need ourselves some V-Tek power.

redsock said...

TEK -- let's go with mbm at second

ish said...

Don't be sasahe-ing it up, Cap.

ish said...

I think we should make sure Ish ALWAYS gets 201.

Now I am going to look at that link, Phil.

Joe Grav said...

:D!

ish said...

Welp, I'm transforming back to winter. Be able to watch the second half of the Celtics game without interruption. That one's looking good, too.

Sox win. O's lose. MFY lose. Celtics are winning... We've got it all tonight!

Joe Grav said...

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh boston yo' my home

phil said...

Crazy how Moss's single gets -.221 WPA because of someone else's baserunning.

LOL, Phil. I can't wait to mystify my friends and family with my new skills. It's all a form of kabbalah.

Amy said...

Good luck with the studying, Joe.

phil said...

It's too bad I can't stand NBA basketball (or most spectator basketball, for that matter).

Joe Grav said...

thanks Amy

and Phil, I'm with you. I hate the NBA, I just have it on as background music at this point. I hope Boston wins because I hope we win everything, but I don't really care.

Amy said...

Yeah, I don't get basketball. Except for the last five minutes, it seems awfully repetitive and dull. I think they should just play 10 minute games.

OK, good night all.

SoSock said...

I love a good pitcher's duel, and now I've completely missed 2 in a row - dammit.
Dice - warming up.
Nice
And by the way - it's not baseball, granted, but a good ACC basketball game is the next best thing. Especially Carolina - Duke!

Jere said...

Game 3 of the season: Jere breaks out the upside-down text on JoS, to no fanfare. (I learned it from sosock.)

I missed the game tonight, but it looks like I already saw it the night before! I did get to hear the final inning on the Pike, as we drove by Fenway...

ish said...

Speaking of lopsided scores... 8th inning in Chicago - Cubs killing the Brewers, 19-5.
