G44: Red Sox 5, Brewers 3

Brewers - 000 000 201 - 3   9  1
Red Sox - 130 000 01x - 5 11 1
Dice was strong (6.2-7-2-2-6, 103, both runs unearned) and David Ortiz belted a three-run home run to left-center in the second inning. The pen saw some nice work from Manny Delcarmen (1.1 IP, ending the 7th and taking the 8th, allowing only a one-out single).

Ortiz also scored in the first, on a bases-loaded walk to J.D. Drew. Doubles from Jason Varitek and Jacoby Ellsbury brought in the fifth run in the eighth.

Matsuzaka worked quickly through the first 4.2 innings, throwing only 58 pitches to 16 batters. But with two outs in the fifth, he allowed a single to Bill Hall, hit Jason Kendall and walked Rickie Weeks to load the bases before getting the final out.

A two-out error at third from Kevin Youkilis kept the seventh inning alive for Milwaukee and Mike Cameron followed with a two-run dong to left. Papelbon allowed a solo shot to Ryan Braun in the ninth.

The Red Sox had plenty of chances to add to their run total.
4th - runner on second, no outs
5th - runners on first and second, no outs
6th - runners on first and third, no outs
7th - runners on first and second, no outs
None of those runners scored. In fact, only one of those seven runners advanced even one base; the man on first in the 6th ended up at second.

Jeff Suppan (4.63, 92 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.45, 174 ERA+)

Game 1 of today's afternoon-night doubleheader.

Fuck. that "sup" comment was posted under my dad's google account.

ish said...

That should be cheating

Nobody had said anything for a few minutes. So I was just going to post "198" "199" "200" and "201."

I thought "this would suck if I said '198' and it'd be #199." And it was.

tim said...

here we are.

now, id just like to report that i havent died. yet.

L-girl said...

Oo, glad to know RLE was not a troll. Tim, where you been, I've missed you.

ish said...

Haven't noticed Allan be 201 much, if at all.

redsock said...

Can't clean up and delete the removed post (#199) because that will drop me back to #200.

L-girl said...

Ish, I had a feeling you were going to keep posting the numbers. :)

L-girl said...

But I can...

ish said...

Can't clean up and delete the removed post (#199) because that will drop me back to #200.

And of course, it'd put L on 201. Again. Heh.

redsock said...

My first time, I believe.

I should be keeping stats.

Jere said...

ish said...

I should be keeping stats.

redsock said...

tim said...

School time, so I'm usually doing stuff during the PM...been busy lately, no MLBTV time...but home for the long weekend, just checkin in to make sure everything is cool here!

I'm also in a softball league at school...take a look at the "events" section of that website. This is going to be the most ridiculous organized sports league I've ever played in.

tim said...

Link = here

Forgot to put the http:// which screws it up.

ish said...

Tek bumping the wall!

tim said...

woot captain

L-girl said...

Tim, I remember you wanted to see our license plates when we got 'em.

I'll post a link to a pic.

Tek 2B!

tim said...

Dats rite, I remember that.

Drive em home, mayor!

ish said...

O'Brien: The Red Sox have averaged a little more than 10 hits per game this season.

L-girl said...

Tim, nice avatar.

The L-Sock Mobile

ish said...

What is that Chevy called, L?

L-girl said...

It's an Optra. Only sold in Canuckistan.

It looks a lot like a Ford Focus hatchback.

redsock said...

In case you are wondering, JOYOFSOX would have fit also.

:<(

tim said...

aight lbj!

Jere said...

There used to be a band called Shit Hook, but on fliers, to avoid cops taking them down, they'd bill themselves as S-Hook.

So whenever Shouse pitches I think of him as Shit-House.

Ooh, Shouse shits the house there.

ish said...

L, is Jamie Carroll on your all-girls teams?

tim said...

and re: license plate - niiice.

redsock said...

Missed only the bot3/top 4 of this one. So far, so good today!

redsock said...

Time to get your snuffin' shoes on.

redsock said...

also
Yook to 1B
Lowell at 3B
Cora at SS

tim said...

Been awhile since I've had a Papelboner. Let's go, Jon.

tim said...

Pap continuing the dog ate the ball story...

Jere said...

Man, that was close to being a continuation of Pap's bad luck streak.

L-girl said...

Jamie Caroll, not yet, but is now!

License plate: we wanted just "wmtc" but it was taken! This is the 2nd choice but we like it.

Snuffin time.

ish said...

YOOOOK reaching into the stands.

L-girl said...

I didn't know what that meant b/c of radio delay. Sounds nice.

ish said...

L, can you make a lineup with that team yet? Or do you still have positions to fill?

phil said...

Just wanted to get a comment in before the last out.

tim said...

Fuck.

L-girl said...

Girls team - I can make 3 or 4 teams by now.

ish said...

NICE catch by that kid in the stands! Too bad the ball went there. But whatev.

Jere said...

that got outta here in a hurry, as Castig would say.

tim said...

hmm, i'd like to see who has the "WMTC" plate and why they chose that anagram.

L-girl said...

But I don't have them by

SHIT!!!!

position. Just a whole bunch of players.

Jere said...

Cora!!!!! win

redsock said...

lloyd braun dong.

ish said...

WOW!!! WEBGEM FOR CORA! THE WATER IS DIRTY!

L-girl said...

wmtc, me too.

L-girl said...

CORA!!

FINALLY, some dirty water.

Jere said...

That is crazy. 3 defensive changes, each one makes a nice play in the 9th

phil said...

Sorry about that.

redsock said...

Einstein with the Willie Mays-game ender!

L-girl said...

I'm outta here til game 2. See you all!

Jere said...

Isn't WMTC CA better advertising for the site, though? Since it's the whole address?

Jere said...

Cora's dad must have thrown him a lot of those pop ups behind him.... he rules at the Mays

redsock said...

I do want to put a little sticky dot between the words so it looks like a URL. Maybe traffic will go up!

Jere said...

I'm surprised there aren't more website license plates, especially in states where there already is a dot in the middle. But in Canada, I assume "CA" automatically makes people think "website," so even without the dot you're gold.

redsock said...

If you asked for "WMTC.CA", I assume they would probably reject it.

redsock said...

Punctuation is not mentioned, but I don't think I have ever seen a plate with a ! or a ? or @#$*& on it.

I often think California when I see CA. Not sure if most Canadians would, though.

L-girl said...

Isn't WMTC CA better advertising for the site, though? Since it's the whole address?

I don't think of the plate as advertising for my site. I don't expect anyone to go to my blog b/c of the plates.

We bought the car when we moved to Canada. The car is our move to Canada. It just goes together for me.

but I don't think I have ever seen a plate with a ! or a ? or @#$*& on it.

They won't do that in Ontario. Letters, numbers or spaces only. Nothing religious, political or overtly sexual.

L-girl said...

Also nothing racist or otherwise bigoted.

ish said...

overtly sexual.

Andy would be pissed.
