G45: Red Sox 7, Brewers 6

Brewers - 000 003 300 - 6  9  4
Red Sox - 202 010 20x - 7 6 3
After Mike Lowell gives the Sox an early lead -- two-run double in the 1st, two-run dong in the 3rd -- the Brewers battle back. The leads changes hands twice in a sloppy 7th inning (two errors on each side), before Mike Timlin pitches a tidy eight-pitch 9th to nail down the Saturday sweep.

***

David Bush (6.06, 70 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.25, 100 ERA+)

Game 2!
Current AL East

Tampa Bay 25 18 .581 --
Boston 25 19 .568 .5

Patrick said...

HELL YA!

Jack Marshall said...

No, just poor performance and bad luck....

Patrick said...

thats funny, I typed 1 meaning, 1 out.

L-girl said...

Patrick with the 201. But he was cheating. ;)

Jack Marshall said...

Funny...I though you meant "L". I may be having a problem...

Patrick said...

But he was cheating. ;)

OMG, don't make me declare shenanigans.

...stealing my glory. Maybe next time, Laura :P

redsock said...

typing any old thing to try and get 201 may not be entirely fair.

L-girl said...

I thought the a-ha experience was Socrates or Plato or somebody like that.

Cora, ugh.

phil said...

:(

phil said...

Let's all commit errors.

L-girl said...

Well, that's what I've been saying. Ish (or whoever) typing "201?" several posts in a row... not fair. But whatever. It's not like you actually win a prize.

redsock said...

hansen getting seriously f'd over this inning.

L-girl said...

declare shenanigans :)

Patrick said...

I seriously entered 1 because I was psyched about the 1 out. I was unaware of the posting situation.

hold on, let me call my lawyer. This is turning bitter sweet.

L-girl said...

oh god, craig counsell. it was one thing to hear his name but seeing him is too much.

phil said...

Nah, Hansen's lowered his ERA this inning. We're the ones getting f'ed over.

L-girl said...

Is your lawyer named Lawyer? Or Counsell?

redsock said...

i was going to award a prize, but laura talked me out of it a few weeks ago. seriously.

Patrick said...

I was referring to my cat, Lawyer. I need some emotional support.

L-girl said...

fuckety fuck

phil said...

woijtweiopgjiopwekjgopiwaekjpogkawepogkweagwe

Jack Marshall said...

That's three more unearned runs, right?

Patrick said...

Yikes...

It's about time to curl on up, fetal style, and wait for the sirens to turn off...

L-girl said...

well there's a game thread almost every night. how many prizes can you have?

crap.

ok. now we need

RUNS PLEASE!!!!

L-girl said...

Game's not over yet, hold the fetal positions and the drool please...

Jack Marshall said...

Why don't we play that other shortstop, what's his name...Yugo? Lugo!

phil said...

Yeah, all unearned.

Runs, please.

SoSock said...

I for one am completely unimpressed with our middle relief lately.

Jack Marshall said...

No, this is great. Now we get to see Eric Gagne blow the game...

redsock said...

it was only one prize -- most 201s and 401s and maybe 601s in the season.

that's what i meant when i said something the other night about keeping stats.

top of the order -- runs are on the menu!'

L-girl said...

What is this Honeydew that advertises on NESN?

I'm surprised Dunkin Donuts lets them do that.

SoSock said...

Although, in his defense, our defense was a tad on the suspect side that inning.
OK, it SUCKED!

Patrick said...

Prize or not, I'm going to crown myself, king of the posts 201-400.

L-girl said...

They've been unimpressive for sure.

L-girl said...

That's my boy!

L-girl said...

One prize? I don't think you ever told me about that.

redsock said...

Why don't we play that other shortstop, what's his name...Yugo? Lugo!

Yeah, he never makes errors.

Patrick said...

Might as well be a double.

phil said...

At least they're out erring us tonight.

L-girl said...

We'll all sit tight and wait for Jedi to come up full-time.

SoSock said...

It's nice reading that Bush has been replaced.
(I can't wait)

L-girl said...

SAFE!!!

Amy said...

OK, LBJ! I get back to see him get that ball out of the way.

L-girl said...

All they have to do is count the votes...

Patrick said...

At least they're out erring us tonight.

and then some!

phil said...

Quality professional baseball tonight.

SoSock said...

So as I sit with my thumb up my ass waiting on GDGD to tell me what I happened, I see L-girl's SAFE! comment.
Apparently a close call?

L-girl said...

Amy's back! Good timing.

phil said...

Run(s) are good.

Amy said...

Score tied! Of course, the Sox were ahead when I get out of the car, and they were behind when I turned on the TV. Fast turnaround.

L-girl said...

Uh, no. A Brewer threw the ball away, that's what my SAFE was for.

redsock said...

that works.

Patrick said...

Wow! That run was a gift. Thank you Brewers, we may not return the favor.

L-girl said...

runs good

more runs better

L-girl said...

yoooooooooook

Amy said...

Did Patrick say he has a cat named Lawyer?? Did he see that we had a student named Lawyer graduate from law school today?

YOUK!

phil said...

More run(s) are even better.

Patrick said...

another gift!

Jack Marshall said...

My imagination, or is this the worst fielding team I've seen in years? Lugo would be the fielding icon on this team.

Amy said...

How did Wakefield do tonight? Has Andy been around to complain?

redsock said...

top of the order -- runs are on the menu!

yummy!

L-girl said...

amy, i think that's why patrick said it. altho i couldn't say for sure.

L-girl said...

we had an all-calendar and clock team going for a while

Jack Marshall said...

Wakefield was fine. If he had gotten some decent relief, he's be in line for an easy win.

Jere said...

we want gagne

Amy said...

Red shirts at night? What's with that? The white ones were dirty from the day game?

Oh, pooh, at least we went ahead.

L-girl said...

fuckin A! bad way to end the inning. but good way to get the lead back.

Patrick said...

You're no Pedroia, Youk.

phil said...

Wake was fine until Aardsma let some of his runners score. Didn't get far into the sixth inning, unfortunately.

Amy said...

All calendar and clock? Hmm. I will have to scroll up or try and see if I can figure some out.

Willie Mays is the most obvious one.

L-girl said...

Was Andy around to complain... that's a good question. I was at work so I'm not sure.

So glad to be home where it's not 90 degrees.

SoSock said...

Youk = no wheels

Amy said...

Glad to hear Wake did fine. So there, Andy!

redsock said...

Red shirts at night? What's with that? The white ones were dirty from the day game?

Pitcher's decision.

Amy said...

90 degrees at work? No AC?

Patrick said...

we want gagne

O boy, won't that be fun! Gros gagne owes us some more runs.

redsock said...

Lopez in -- LOWGY

"Lefty One Walk GuY"

Jack Marshall said...

Good plan though. A wild throw from the catcher, then the centerfielder throws it into the dugout. With the Brewers, that's called a percentage play. Youk was unlucky, that's all.

Amy said...

Pitcher's decision?? Wakefield? Is that really true, or are you making me look silly?

Jere said...

"
Pitcher's decision."

Right, but aren't they the Sunday alternates? I'm more wondering about the Saturday than the night.

L-girl said...

AC off all weekend. Fan blowing right at my face. Still horrible.

Amy said...

How did the fans react when Kapler came to bat?

redsock said...

old yeller warming.

L-girl said...

I gave the temperature in F so all you Americans wouldn't think I was cold.

9casey said...

Is Timlin the closer for the nightcap?

L-girl said...

Huge ovation for the WSJ.

Jere said...

Did everyone hear the crowd chanting "we want Gagne"? That's why I said that. But also, I want to face Gagne.

L-girl said...

White Flag. Say it ain't so.

Amy said...

No AC?? In an office building? Do the windows open? That is awful.

I also thought red was only on Sunday. And never at night.

redsock said...

Standing O for the WSJ.

Patrick said...

Joe and Dave are hot for Braun.

SoSock said...

How many errors can 1 game feature?

Jere said...

Well Sunday games are usually day games, that's why you never see them at night.

Amy said...

That's nice for Gabe. I wish I had seen it. More fun than the depressing and too long play we saw.

L-girl said...

lowgy, just saw that.

he did get a guy out tho. strange as that may seem.

Patrick said...

haha, this time I translated WSJ as world series Jew, considering the circumstances.

Amy said...

There are some Sunday games at night.

L-girl said...

"Joe and Dave are hot for Braun."

That's for sure.

redsock said...

L-girl said...
Huge ovation for the WSJ.

redsock said...
Standing O for the WSJ.


Great minds and all that ...

redsock said...

fucking LOWGY.

L-girl said...

world series jew, why not :)

most people would probably think of sandy koufax, but we'll know it's kapler.

often known as krapler.

Amy said...

90F = ? C

Are you able to think in Celsius without doing the math at all these days?

Amy said...

WSJ = Youk also.

Art Shamsky on the 69 Mets.

Amy said...

Nice DP!

L-girl said...

Was the crowd really chanting We Want Gagne?

DP!!!!

Patrick said...

FUCK YEAH! FUCK YEAH!

L-girl said...

I can only think in Celsius. I don't convert it - never did. Just went cold turkey into C.

I think we've had this conversation before. :)

redsock said...

bot threw 7 pitches in game one.

he damn well better be in there in the 9th -- who else is tito gonna call - old yeller?

Jack Marshall said...

At least someone on the field can catch a damn ground ball...

Amy said...

Uch, Gagne, so many bad memories.

Patrick said...

I'll be happy when Gloria Estefan performs and I don't have to hear this commercial anymore.

SoSock said...

Wow, someone else CAN hit into a dp

L-girl said...

90 F is about 32 C

Amy said...

I think we've had this conversation before. :)

Yeah, I think you're right. I am still in disbelief that it was that easy!

L-girl said...

Patrick, I was thinking the same thing! After MLB Audio on the weekends, I have that stupid music stuck in my head for days.

Jere said...

Remy finally acknowledging We Want Gagne

L-girl said...

Converting temps was ridiculous.

Better to just check the temp online, then go outside. This is what 10 feels like, this is what 15 feels like, and so on.

Now I hear them chanting for Gagne. Wow, that must suck to be him right now.

redsock said...

timlin up last inning
bot not up now
don thinking with 1 or 2 outs, OY will get back up.

can we get 15 runs here pls?

Patrick said...

"I don't think he'll get the same reaction Gabe Kapler got" Joe C. about Gagne.

Amy said...

An insurance run would be nice. Especially if Francona is thinking of bringing in Timlin.

He wouldn't, would he??

Jere said...

"I'll be happy when Gloria Estefan performs and I don't have to hear this commercial anymore."

I keep saying this, too...I can not wait till that goddamn show happens.

L-girl said...

Maybe Remy has the same audio feed as I do. It was the first time I heard it too.

Patrick said...

We should haul a big rock into the visitors bullpen so Gagne can hide under it.

redsock said...

mr. toasty does get back up.

L-girl said...

Amy, we're almost sure to see White Flag tonight.

Which reminds me

RUNS PLEASE!!!

Jere said...

But Remy did say "for the past few innings they've been chanting WWG."

So either he waited to mention it or somebody told him it had been going on for a while.

Amy said...

Better to just check the temp online, then go outside. This is what 10 feels like, this is what 15 feels like, and so on.

This is why you could move to Canada. Much more flexible and capable of adapting to change than most of us (or at least more so than I am).

Patrick said...

Drew was on fire before he tweaked his wrist. Now he is his alter ego, Smoldering.

L-girl said...

Or he heard it all along and I wasn't paying attention to the crowd noise.

redsock said...

we may need manny to blast a walkoff dong tonight ....

Patrick said...

I had a Canadian accent when I got home from my 6 months in NFLD. I hadn't noticed until then.

L-girl said...

"Much more flexible and capable of adapting to change than most of us (or at least more so than I am)."

And much more likely to have an ulcer, high blood pressure and homicidal rage over the US than many people, too.

But thank you. :)

Amy said...

But were you thinking in Celsius, Patrick?

Patrick said...

I was, as a matter of fact.

L-girl said...

Patrick, I have a Nfld question for you. It's on my blog, I can send you a link.

You traveled a lot through the province, right?

Amy said...

It seems you still have some of that rage even from across the border. Keep it coming!

Man in scoring position.

L-girl said...

BTB BBs...

L-girl said...

Oh yeah, plenty of rage left. :)

It just doesn't hit me so hard anymore. I can breathe easier now, rage from a distance.

Patrick said...

I lived in one area most of the time, but I did take 2 weeks to go to St. Johns. I never made it out to gros morne national park

L-girl said...

Damn DP, bah.

1 run lead and White Flag coming in.

Patrick, never mind. For some reason I thought you were traveling a lot.

Patrick said...

I miss Veritek already.

Amy said...

The dog is just loving having these kittens. HJbgvgg (kitten running across keyboard here)

Cassie is like a mother dog with new puppies. So cute.

Patrick said...

When are you going? You have a good chance of seeing whales in June.

redsock said...

well, here we go.

Patrick said...

And also all the ice bergs floating down the north coast from greenland are BEAUTIFUL. I never would have thought a big chunk of ice could be so pretty, but they are.

L-girl said...

June 16 to July 2. Whales, yes. And I hope icebergs too.

redsock said...

I would be nice if OY did well enough so that Bot didn't have to get up and pitch anyway.

Kapler
Hall
Rivera

SoSock said...

Freaking DP.
Please tell me WF is NOT walking out to the mound.
Or if he is he's just carrying someone else's jockstrap.
I opened the gate at the LL complex at 6 this morning and didn't leave until 9:30. I'm ready for bed, not extra innings!

L-girl said...

We saw icebergs in Alaska and they were SO beautiful.

I'll be blogging my travel journal if you're interested.

L-girl said...

this is scary.

L-girl said...

glad we're home tho, just in case we need another AB.

Patrick said...

Kapler is still playing for us.

L-girl said...

all right, that's 2 down!

Amy said...

Wow, 2 outs on 4 pitches. Hope Jere is watching. :)

L-girl said...

ok, let's make jere say i told you so!

redsock said...

4 pitches - 2 outs

nice stuff, mike. one more, m'kay?

Amy said...

Wow, 0-2. Am I dreaming?

SoSock said...

Holy crap !
Timlin with, no I'm not gonna say anything yet

L-girl said...

water is very dirty today!

Amy said...

A SAVE for Timlin!

redsock said...

DOUBLE SHOT OF DIRTY WATER!

phil said...

Water? Indeed.

Patrick said...

WATER!

SoSock said...

The White Flag dirties the water!

Patrick said...

WOW! SO GOOD, SO GOOD, SO GOOD!

L-girl said...

What a fun day! (Except for the heat at work and the Amy's overly long theatre and Sarah's weekend trains...) But what a fun baseball day.

Amy said...

So a good day all around.

Someone still has to explain why the pitcher gets to decide what shirts they wear.

Tomorrow's game: Fox, NESN or ESPN?

And forecast seems to be some rain...

L-girl said...

Night night. Hasta manana.

Patrick said...

only 14 hours until we do it again. O boy, o boy.

SoSock said...

Glad I got to pop in for a change DURING a game.
Heard on the radio that tiz hit one out earlier.
And my LL team didn't lose today either.
(of course, they didn't PLAY, but...)
manana

andy said...

Good thing we play the wanna-be Rays for the next series. We need the break.
