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

L-girl said...

I would think it has to be on NESN.

s1c said...

MLB.com says NESN, but no pre-game yet or anything. It etter be on NESN!!!

Patrick said...

Ryan Braun has been on fire. It's pretty amazing. 6 dongs in the past 6 games.

s1c said...

Ah, here is Don!!!

I guess they decided to just go with Don and the Remdawg and no pre-game.

redsock said...

Thanks for coming back, everybody!

s1c said...

Only 4 of the batters for the night game have had previous at bats vs Bush. Of course in a small sample size but they all have had some success.

redsock said...

Don on mlbtv!

woo hoo

redsock said...

I want the Red Sox to destroy anyone named Bush.

Patrick said...

Dale has grown on me at the same rate that I am growing sick of Dave O'Brien.

I'll listen to the Brewers radio for awhile too see how they are.

s1c said...

I love brother Dave.

s1c said...

Yeah boy, I like that start!!!

Patrick said...

DAAAAAAMn!!!!!

redsock said...

waKKKefield

Patrick said...

Nice! No commercials on the Brewers feed. Just sweet, sweet silence.

redsock said...

11 of wake's last 12 pitches in that inning were strikes.

Patrick said...

O man. That inning got the juices flowing. I'm lusty for runs now.

s1c said...

Wow I missed this Findings from baseball's investigation have been turned over to federal authorities. The White Sox said the three were dismissed "for actions in Latin America that were violations of club policy and standards" but did not elaborate..

Have to wonder what the three White Sox employees were doing down there in SA.

Patrick said...

It's nice to see Lowell back at third. I was unreasonably getting angry at Youk at third, after he spoiled me with an eternity of flawlessness.

redsock said...

YOOK "with authority"!

Patrick said...

RUNS RUNS RUNS RUNS RUNS

s1c said...

Dr. Doubles!!!

Patrick said...

¡ʇıɥ ƃıq ǝɥʇ

L-girl said...

Ah, back to real baseball. Enough of that losing shit.

redsock said...

again -- all starting with 2 outs and no one on.

Patrick said...

Our friggin team scores early all the time now. I'm still traumatized from our previous 3 games.

Patrick said...

MMMHMMM that man can swing not.

L-girl said...

Yes Patrick, I agree. We are all traumatized.

In fact, I'm curled up in a fetal position right now, drooling.

redsock said...

don says ball skips to backstop and lowell skips to third

remy says he likes that and don says "it's all new stuff" and he's "got a lot of new stuff saved up"

remy says he can barely wait to hear it

Patrick said...

Coco Clutch time

Patrick said...

and that happened

redsock said...

Look out Tamper, here we come!

redsock said...

with the 6-3, 13 straight strikes from timmeh.

Patrick said...

PFFT!?!?! No K?! Sigh.

redsock said...

and then he throws a ball.

andy said...

The last time I did not watch Wake pitch he was flawless. I am not watching now to keep that intact.

s1c said...

Glad to see Gabe getting some love!!!

andy said...

Papelbon is worrying me. He needs a rubdown or something. All he has to do is call.

Patrick said...

We'll call you when Ellsbury is at bat, Andy.

redsock said...

hello hebrew hammer!

Patrick said...

It's the cookie monster!

L-girl said...

Hey, call me too! He's not ABJ, he's LBJ!

Patrick said...

This is when Wakefield makes Cash sweat.

redsock said...

EZ-Pass coaching 3rd for Milwaukee!!!

Patrick said...

Andy's Boy Johnathon.

redsock said...

Seems pretty quiet here at work. I'm fairly confident I'll not be bothered.

L-girl said...

I'm trying to work and listen at the same time.

Also trying not to pass out from the heat. No air in here this weekend, just a fan blowing directly at me to keep me conscious.

phil said...

Cora can't regress to the mean. What's this.

L-girl said...

Are they talking about Ish right now?? Ish, are you listening? Is that you Dave and Castig are talking about?

Patrick said...

Nice 2 outs! Exactly where we want them.

L-girl said...

They're talking about the appearance at Cabella's, and someone they met from Maine who is going to be at Fenway on June 12. And I half-remember Ish's real name... Is that you?

L-girl said...

It wasn't Ish.

phil said...

Is a 10-pitch out still a productive out?

andy said...

Heat Stroke L?

L-girl said...

It's just a barely-long at-bat.

Unless by productive you mean it helps to wear out the pitcher.

L-girl said...

I really thought it was Ish :)

redsock said...

Is a 10-pitch out still a productive out?

On some level, I suppose. But not really.

...

The Milwaukee Brewers have played in the AL West, AL Central, AL East and NL Central.

Sarah Gates said...

Hey gang! Absurdly difficult time getting from Manhattan back to Queens today. None of my trains are running where they're supposed to be. Dumb weekend trains. I did have an amazing lamb gyro from a halal street vendor though, which made up for it.

In red tonight, eh?

Oh, and we can expect wonderful things from Ococ tonight, as I benched him today on my fantasy team, and he consistently makes me look silly when I do that.

L-girl said...

They should change divisions every few years. Do the whole circuit.

L-girl said...

Dumb weekend trains.

Boy does that bring back bad memories. I worked weekends for more than 10 years.

9casey said...

How is Counsell still in the bigs he hasn't hit over 280 since 02

redsock said...

Maybe Counsell's son's first name is Lawyer?

L-girl said...

Dave O'Brien is telling a story about Counsell getting hit in the face with a pitch, his jaw broken in several places, spitting out blood and teeth on his way to 1st base, but still intending to play.

redsock said...

Rickie Weeks on the All-Calendar Team with Zach Day, Matt Holliday and June Greene.

L-girl said...

All Calendar Team, nice.

Damned if I can think of anymore right now, but nice.

L-girl said...

Ricky Ledee?

phil said...

Wasn't Counsell out for another season after that?

Patrick said...

NO way! I love it!

redsock said...

Carlos May.

DP!!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

nice dp!

phil said...

Uhh, Willie Mays?

L-girl said...

Jeff Frye (day) ?

Patrick said...

Today has been full of unconventional double plays.

redsock said...

Cincinnati Reds owner August Herrmann.

redsock said...

And of course Ococtober.

phil said...

Mike August Timlin?

L-girl said...

Ococtober

LOL

Sarah Gates said...

Rick Monday!

L-girl said...

Must be somebody named March.

phil said...

Steve Christmas
Rick Monday

Patrick said...

Pedroia adding more to his case that he is faster than Youk.

L-girl said...

I was even going over the days of the week but forgot Rick Monday! Good one.

Timlin's middle name is really August?

phil said...

Luke Easter.

Yes, Timlin's middle name is August.

redsock said...

Bobby Valentine's Day?

Patrick said...

Julyo Lugo

s1c said...

Yes Timlin has the middle name of August.

phil said...

Johnny Weekly.

redsock said...

Pedroia adding more to his case that he is faster than Youk.

And he's 5-for-5. Look out, Lyndon!

Sarah Gates said...

Dr Dong!

s1c said...

Dr. Doubles Dong!!!

phil said...

There are lots of Guses, any of whom could be called August.

L-girl said...

Luke Easter

"Luscious" Luke Easter!

Patrick said...

I love that man.

L-girl said...

DOCTOR DONG!!!!

(Huge delay over here!)

redsock said...

DEAR DOCTOR!!!!!

Don: "That is very gone!"

phil said...

Who says Lowell's a pull hitter.

Oh wait.

s1c said...

How about back kcab!!!

Patrick said...

The Dr. sometimes gets two doubles in one at bat.

phil said...

Leon Day.

Abner Doubleday?

s1c said...

nope, not meant to be. Drew is so not on fire.

Patrick said...

back kcab

took me a full minute to figure this one out.

redsock said...

Doctor to Bush: "This may hurt a bit."

L-girl said...

Abner Doubleday counts twice.

L-girl said...

Ray Knight?

phil said...

I hadn't noticed that baseball-reference.com sends you to amusing pages if you search for certain words but not others.

L-girl said...

I didn't click on the links but I think Jere has demonstrated that here.

redsock said...

Phil Marchildon

redsock said...

Three minor leaguers since 2000:

Agustin Septimo
Leyson Septimo
Sandobal Septimo

phil said...

Gino Minutelli?

L-girl said...

I think all the looking up is a little bit cheating. You're supposed to be thinking of them your own self.

phil said...

Ross Albert (the Second) Grimsley?

phil said...

Nah, you come up with all sorts of obscure and goofy names this way. I promise not to enter myself in the olympics, however.

Patrick said...

WAʞEY!

Patrick said...

I heard an interesting stat that the Major League is on pace to hit 1,000 less home runs than in 2006.

L-girl said...

Yes, all the announcers are talking about that.

L-girl said...

Ross Albert (the Second) Grimsley?

And this is part of the calendar team how?

redsock said...

Nah, you come up with all sorts of obscure and goofy names this way.

Like one of my faves: Chicken Wolf.

And Bud Weiser.

s1c said...

Baseball Musings looked at that a couple of days ago. Weather related, colder this year than last year, fewer home runs.

Patrick said...

WTF? I just called Kapler Cookie monster because he is the reining cookie off champion, but I just found out at baseball statistics that Ortiz already had that nick name:
David Ortiz
David Americo (Arias) Ortiz (Papi or Cookie Monster)

Where was I?

L-girl said...

Urban Shocker. One of my faves.

phil said...

Fernando Lunar

L-girl said...

You didn't know Papi was the Cookie Monster?

What else don't you know?

phil said...

Laura: "second" is a unit of time.

L-girl said...

OK, I'm getting ready to leave. The score when I get home will be...??

L-girl said...

Laura: "second" is a unit of time.

Yes it is.

redsock said...

Remy 3-for-9 against Fingers, with a double.

Patrick said...

What else don't you know?

Let's not go there. It gets uncomfortable real fast.

L-girl said...

I'm sorry, Patrick. I'm sure I don't know more things than you don't know.

Or less things. However that works.

redsock said...

You didn't know Papi was the Cookie Monster?

Someone hasn't read The Glossary. (shakes head disapprovingly)

Flo's daughter calls him that.

L-girl said...

Make that fewer things. Nabbed by my own grammar police.

L-girl said...

No score predictions for when I get home? 20-30 mins from now. Make it 30 so I can take my shoes off and let the dogs outside.

Patrick said...

7-0 Sox with 3 more rbi's from Lowell.

redsock said...

I hope Cookie Monster is in the Glossary! :>)

L-girl said...

OK, Patrick's in with 7-0.

I'll say 6-0.

Sarah Gates said...

7-2

redsock said...

GDGD sucks. They seem to be calling IDing Wake throws a knuckleball, even though the speeds of two consecutive pitches to Counsell were 59 and 77.

L-girl said...

I like the linescore pattern. 20202020...

With the 00000 for the other team, of course.

L-girl said...

See you later.

Patrick said...

It's in there. Just checked.

redsock said...

Make it 30 so I can take my shoes off and let the dogs outside.


Maybe my eyes are blurry from wearing contacts all day, but I first saw this as "let the dongs outside".

Sarah Gates said...

I'm all for letting the dongs outside, as long as they're sox dongs.

redsock said...

cool skull and crossbones flag out in the sox pen!

Patrick said...

BWAHAHAH! I love Wake.

Sarah Gates said...

Our bullpen always seems like it's having a pretty damn good time.

redsock said...

lyndon on first with second open!!

redsock said...

SB!!

25 for 25!

Sarah Gates said...

Muahahahaha! You cannot catch him!

Patrick said...

Watch out Ichiro. Here comes Jacoby.

redsock said...

"You'll never catch him." (/laura)

s1c said...

5-0!!!

Sarah Gates said...

That was ugly. In a good way.

redsock said...

hahahahaahahah....

run!

s1c said...

Well, time to start getting ready for work, catch up when I get there.

Patrick said...

AWWWW! my prediction was close to being fulfilled.

Sarah Gates said...

"You'll never catch him." (/laura)

yeah, that's what I was thinking when I typed something quite similar.

Sarah Gates said...

Hrmph. We were better off not knowing where all the Coreys had gone.

Sarah Gates said...

Aardvark up and at em.

Patrick said...

Don't quit on my now, Wakefield. I want 5 more outs from you.

redsock said...

wow that ball 4 came in and made a huge right turn!

Jack Marshall said...

Now let's see if a Sox reliever can finally strand some runners. I was racking my brain trying to remember the Sox middle reliever in the 90s who had good ERAs but let all his inherited runners score. Drove me nuts, because the national announcers kept saying how great a season he was having. Finally remembered his name this inning: Dennis Lamp.
It's no fun getting senile.
Get off my lawn!

Patrick said...

Things were exciting enough already, Aardvark.

phil said...

Poop.

Sarah Gates said...

Dagnabbit!

Jack Marshall said...

This is ridiculous! Can't anybody come in and get a couple outs without giving up a walk and a hit????

Patrick said...

I was racking my brain trying to remember

I meet interesting people when I pick up raw milk from a local farm. Last time I went this woman told me that saying the word "reach" helps you remember a word or name you can't remember, or find something you lost.

It hasn't worked for my, but maybe that's because I don't remember thing due to the little worms eating my memories.

redsock said...

did remy say the weeks AB was 12 pitches? it was 7.

Patrick said...

Trying to get an out part 3...

redsock said...

remember that 3-pitch K you did when you came in? do more of that.

Jack Marshall said...

Aardsma's too wild to bring on with men on base; Delcarmen's too inconsistent; Okajima's jinxed; Timlin stinks, and who knows what Hansen will do. Great options out in the pen. Christ.

L-girl said...

5-1 when I walked in, 5-3 two seconds later...

Patrick said...

The sox have been shopping Aardsma and Lopez...

L-girl said...

I see a missed my Man Of Steal! Thank you for filling in for me while I was gone. :)

YOU WILL NEVER CATCH HIM!!!

phil said...

That'll do, Youk.

L-girl said...

Okajima is jinxed?! What a hoot.

redsock said...

I just swallowed a peanut M&M. Not comfortable.

Jack Marshall said...

Thanks, Patrick. I had a college professor who claimed "the tip of the tongue" phenomemon could be addressed by saying the first word that came to mind, and then to try to find similar characteristics of that word in the word you couldn't think of. Like for "Lamb" I might only be able to come up with "ram" or even "veal." It works sometimes.

I wish I could think of the professor's name...

redsock said...

Okajima's jinxed

Dan? Is that you?

redsock said...

"bill of the cap high"

Jack Marshall said...

Didn't you know, L-Girl? He has the "can't get the first fucking guy up when he comes in" Jinx.

L-girl said...

Don says: "Sometimes you feel like a pickle."

L-girl said...

Maybe he has the Tooth Fairy or the Santa Claus.

L-girl said...

I find the best thing for the Tip Of The Tongue phenom is to do something else entirely and let your mind work on it without your awareness. Then you get the "a-ha experience" later.

redsock said...

He has the "can't get the first fucking guy up when he comes in" Jinx.

That is more properly known as poor performance and/or bad luck.

Patrick said...

Ok Cash, stop regressing to the mean for just a moment here and get Oco in.

Jack Marshall said...

How Eastern of you, I-Girl. Yes, that works sometimes. I just thought of the Harvard professor's name using that method: Roger Brown, who did a lot of great work in cognitive dissonance. And great at keeping inherited runners from scoring, too...

Jack Marshall said...

I stand corrected, Wise One.

Patrick said...

who did a lot of great work in cognitive dissonance. And great at keeping inherited runners from scoring, too...

LOL

9casey said...

Jack Marshall said...
Harvard professor's name using that method: Roger Brown, who did a lot of great work in cognitive dissonance.



What?

redsock said...

Hansen in.

Jack Marshall said...

I'm glad SOMEBODY has a sense of humor...

Patrick said...

I look at these final three frame, and it almost feels like a new game is just beginning. I believe Dave would be saying "This thing is far from over".

Jack Marshall said...

9Casey: what WHAT?

Patrick said...

Some people don't like Craig Hansen.

L-girl said...

Did Jack Marshall just call me I-Girl?

phil said...

I wish had more confidence that we could hold onto leads.

Jack Marshall said...

Only because I'm Typo-Lad. Sorry, Laura.

redsock said...

Did Jack Marshall just call me I-Girl?

Someone worked some voodoo on his keyboard.

Yo Hansen -- OUTS!
