G54: Red Sox 5, Mariners 3

Red Sox  - 000 100 040 - 5  9  1
Mariners - 000 001 002 - 3 8 0
Hell of a pitchers duel for seven innings. Both Colon and Hernandez worked quickly and threw few pitches. The game was 1:29 old at the seventh inning stretch.

David Ortiz homered to dead center in the fourth to put Boston on the board. Seattle tied it in the sixth: Ichiro Suzuki singled, Jose Lopez was hit by a pitch, Jose Vidro bunted the two runners over and Ichiro scored on a grounder to second from Raul Ibanez.

The Red Sox broke through against Felix in the eighth: Sean Casey singled, Julio Lugo forced him at second, Jacoby Ellsbury grounded to second, Dustin Pedroia doubled to deep left (2-1), Ortiz was walked intentionally, Manny Ramirez singled over Jeremy Reed's head in right field (3-1), Mike Lowell singled (4-1), J.D. Drew dropped a bunt down that died on the third base grass, Jason Varitek walked (5-1) -- and then Hernandez was pulled.

Colon: 7-5-1-1-4, 84.

***

Bartolo Colon (3.60, 120 ERA+) / Felix Hernandez (3.34, 118 ERA+)

RIP: Former Red Sox pitcher Geremi Gonzalez, 33, "died on Sunday after apparently being struck by lightning in Punta Palma, Zulia, Venezuela". Gonzalez pitched in 28 games for the 2005 Red Sox.
Afternoon: Orioles 6, Yankees 1
7 PM: Rangers at Rays

Cheney's record isn't in jeopardy, but 9 Ks through five is filthy.

Fucking Hinske. 5-0 FGR.

phil said...

Meanwhile, the Celtics are playing very shitty basketball.

The other night Phil said "Feel better, Laura" and I said I wasn't sick.

Well, he was right. Now I'm sneezing and coughing and sound like a frog.

I'll be watching w/o threading as long as I can stay awake. No computer though. Everybody give Allan messages so I know you still love me.

phil said...

Sorry to inflict that on you, Laura, but really it's Allan who deserves the credit.

Kinsler tries to make it respectable with a two-run homer.

TEX - 000 001 002
FGR - 100 131 10

You need three characters to try to get the columns to line up with non-fixed-width fonts, nick. I'm going with "FGR" for "Fucking Rays".

OK, I'll buy that explanation. Maybe I'm a bit dense, but I don't get the "G" in "FGR".

nick said...

Sorry to hear that, Laura. speedy recovering. And best of luck to Allan sharing the same space.

Sarah Gates said...

Me too, Laura, me too.

We'll see how long I'm up for this one, but never fear, I do still love you.

nick said...

"Mike Timlin did a nice job weaving out of trouble"

not something you see every day.

Patrick said...

CCR for carl crawford's rays.

There's a bad moon on the rise.

Sarah Gates said...

Yeah, I'd go with FKR if you're trying to say Fucking Rays.

Though Fucking Good Rays works too, and differentiates them from all previous Devil Ray attempts.

Or FDR for Fucking Devil Rays, which makes me happy because it uses the Devil, but I'm leery of it due to the previous use of dead presidents on our side.

phil said...

"FuckinG Rays"? First and last is a typical way to abbreviate. What would you prefer, "FKR"?

Patrick said...

Celtics pulled to within 6 at the half.

good things.

North Shore Navigators said...

We <3 you L. Feel better. Hopefully the Sox help in that process.

Come on chunky colon!

Patrick said...

Colorado's getting pounded 18-4 by the Phillies.

How the hell did those guys make it to the World Series anyways? Someone had to put them in their place.

ish said...

Celtics pulled to within 6 at the half.

good things.


4, wasn't it? Rondo had that crazy fallaway lunging basket and the foul.

Watching basketball, hockey, and soon, baseball. I'll be back around mid-game.

Feel better, L. Sickly in late May. That's too bad.

Patrick said...

I miss L on the posts. Hope you recovery quickly.

phil said...

"FKR" would probably be pronounced "Fucker", so maybe that does work.

Patrick said...

4, wasn't it? Rondo had that crazy fallaway lunging basket and the foul.

DOh! yeah, 4. Actually listened to the second on the radio. The color guy is hilarious.

redsock said...

L says thanks.

(seems like a bunch of attention whoring to me! ... :>) )

FSN shitbags for me -- Rogers isn't being nice and throwing NESN on some another station.

nick said...

camo gear?! gag me. Bring out the pink bats.

Sarah Gates said...

Oh what peace a second cable box brings...

I left the room and when I came back Dave had switched the main tv over to the sox game and repaired to the secondary one in the bedroom.

Patrick said...

Why does this country have to be so horizontal? 10 o'clock games are so yawn.

10am games are probably pretty yawn for some Californians, but I'm not as sympathetic.

Sarah Gates said...

I too am stuck with FSN.

redsock said...

L says yay to 2nd cable box!

btw

yook out of lineup .... casey in, batting 8th.

Sarah Gates said...

Oh! I have news too! I'll be going back to college in the fall to get a BE in Environmental Engineering. I just got the letter from City College the other day. Ten years in theatre was plenty.

nick said...

fucker. nice catch.

Patrick said...

AHHHH. I'm scared already.

Sarah Gates said...

Why does this country have to be so horizontal? 10 o'clock games are so yawn.

Next year let's all move to Chile.

redsock said...

blink blink - 2 outs

redsock said...

nice start to felix's perfect game!!!

nick said...

Sarah, congrats! that's terrific.

I just got back a few hours ago from seeing a friend of mine get his BS at Cornell (at the age of 33 and having been out of school for 13 years).

Patrick said...

I'm proud of Colon, for some inexplicable reason.

redsock said...

game #2000 for manny, sez sea tv

nick said...

horizontal?

nick said...

The mayor seemed to make a point to acknowledge anyone he could see on that play.

Patrick said...

Wow, good find Nick.

redsock said...

very cool map, nick.

Patrick said...

Now I just need a science lesson, a few vocabulary words, and some interesting sabermetric stats (Math).

nick said...

yeah, it's a pretty fascinating blog that seems to exist just so I can suddenly apply it to a situation such as this.

hooray for random significance.

Sarah Gates said...

Easy there Patrick - I'm not starting classes til the fall!

redsock said...

perfect, felix, perfect!!!

Patrick said...

Ughh. This guy is another Sox killer.

Sarah Gates said...

Ugh, the flag waving.

And, ugh, the Felix.

Sarah Gates said...

I love that we're all getting the chance to watch Felix's PERFECT GAME together.

Sarah Gates said...

Why yes, FSN, the reigning world champions ARE the team to beat in the East, and everywhere else, thankyouverymuch.

Joe Grav said...

What was the Rays final?

redsock said...

colon looking fine!!!

Sarah Gates said...

7-3 Joe.

Joe Grav said...

The bad news is it's looking bad for the Celtics. the good news is that might mean i can persuade dad to put on the sox soon.

Sarah Gates said...

You know what you need Joe? A

SECOND CABLE BOX!

(No, I'm not enjoying that AT ALL.)

redsock said...

TEX: 000 001 002 - 3 5 0
FKR: 100 131 10x - 7 16 0

TB also had 15 LOB

Patrick said...

GD it. C's need to stop being a bunch of Dbags and sack up.

Joe Grav said...

I've got another TV, but I like hanging with my dad and watching the game. Even if it means flicking back and forth a lot.

Patrick said...

Is truck day anytime soon? We left the bats at Fenway.

Sarah Gates said...

My Dave is the best. He just came in to fix himself a bourbon on the rocks, which made me think that the thing my horrible, coughing throat needs is...
A hot toddy! Brilliant!

mattymatty said...

I just turned on the game and saw Felix on the mound for the Mariners and I just thought it figures. Hernandez is supposed to start against the Yankees in NY, but instead he suffers some mysterious injury and misses not only his start but the entire series. So of course as soon as we get to town he's feeling fine! Yay!

In similarly irritating news, Rich Harden who would win a Cy if he could stay healthy, has started five games this year. Three of them have been against Boston.

Pardon me while I go pull my hair out.

Patrick said...

OOO, at this point pulling my hair out sounds like a good use of time.

Sarah Gates said...

Nice!

Patrick said...

Barto has huge splits between lefties and righties. Righties are hitting .091 against him, lefties around .500

Joe Grav said...

pedrOHHHHHHHHH-YEAHHHHHHH!

redsock said...

SEA TV pretty much calling that as a hit when FY says FU!!

Patrick said...

Gosh, I hope Felix doesn't lose his control, with him throwing a perfect game and all.

Patrick said...

Celts down by 8 after three. Ugly but still within reach...

Sarah Gates said...

mattymatty, what you've just described is one of the many reasons this team is so great. The MFY might be having good matchup luck, and we might be having lousy, but take a look at the standings.

redsock said...

AND THAT HAPPENED!!!

Sarah Gates said...

Fo' shizzle, tizzle!

phil said...

Papi delivers. That looks deep.

Patrick said...

HELLL FREAKING YEAH!!!!

AHHHHHHHHH.

Patrick said...

Papi understands that if he wants to get plated, he'll have to drive himself in.

Sarah Gates said...

Those who are not cursed by FSN, is NESN being as inanely patriotic? It's making me want to throw things at the tv. And I like my tv.

Patrick said...

Noo!!! Put in Rajon!

mattymatty said...

The Sox actually got some good swings in on Felix in that inning. Papi, obviously, but Manny crushed that ball right at the shortstop and Pedroia hit one on a line at Ichiro too. Thats promising.

The stupid Yankees lost today in Baltimore too, so they're not going anywhere for a while.

Oh, good, walk the guy who can't hit.

Patrick said...

Hurray! WTG Barto!

redsock said...

these fsn dicks are annoying. that catch by drew -- pretty normal, they are sure it would fall.

also they make a point of saying manny jogs in, manny nonchalantly catches it -- yet when ichiro does the same thing ... nothing. more manny = lazy in the field shit.


pc

felix: 8-12-8 11 = 39
colon: 13-10-11 10 = 45

Sarah Gates said...

Werd on!

nick said...

ichi-fucking-ro!

Sarah Gates said...

Wow. That looked rough. I'm impressed.

Patrick said...

Man, I know he's not ours, but I do love me some Ichiro.

redsock said...

sea tv totally lost his shit on that one.

HEY -- did ichiro hi-5 a fan and get a DP?

NO HE DID NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Patrick said...

Veritek has some of the looooongest outs.

Sarah Gates said...

Oh bah.

nick said...

maybe we could get him to be the 2nd backup CF?

Patrick said...

Ugh. Felix is getting lucky now.

mattymatty said...

Great play by Ichiro, but can we get any more unlucky? Thats at least four balls that have been scalded and we've got nothing for it.

Patrick said...

I'm turning off the Celtics out of frustration. If they're going to come back, they'll have to do it on their own.

Sarah Gates said...

Haha - I found myself thinking the same thing, Allan.

Joe Grav said...

I'm hanging in there for a few more minutes. Gotta get a score-stop-score sequence.

Joe Grav said...

there's the 'score'

Patrick said...

I'm listening to KOMO the station covering Seattle, and they always come in two pitches late. We barely made it back for the leadoff strikeout.

Sarah Gates said...

Nick - that was great.

Matty - we've got more to show for it than they do!

Joe Grav said...

but no stop

Patrick said...

Nice, Colon being economic with his 52 pitches through 5.

Joe Grav said...

There we go. 6-2 run for the Greene Teeme.

Patrick said...

I wish I had bought that ice cream when I had the chance...

mattymatty said...

I'm going to go to bed. Gotta get up for work in 6 hrs. Have a good night everyone.

Go Sox!

Patrick said...

Tell me if they come within 3, Joe.

ish said...

What a quick game this is tonight. Hard to believe. Five innings in under an hour. One big blur. And meanwhile, the drama continues on the basketball court.

redsock said...

night, matty.

Sarah Gates said...

Nightnight mattymatty.

Patrick said...

Not the guy you wanna walk there, Felix

nick said...

wow. nice recovery on that pickoff.

Joe Grav said...

still 5 patrick

ish said...

BALK.

Joe Grav said...

not looking good 4 the celtics. detroit +7 with the ball, 3:13 to go

Sarah Gates said...

Wheels on at second, thanks to the balk call - let's do something with this!

Sarah Gates said...

Or not.

ish said...

Make that 10. Jeez.

redsock said...

umm...

tp pls

ish said...

...turning my FULL attention to the Red Sox now.

Sarah Gates said...

"he's the straw that stirs the drink"

I'd like to give this the inane analogy of the day award.

nick said...

as opposed the straw that sucks the drink.

phil said...

Crap.

Joe Grav said...

tie game.

ish said...

I like Varitek's catching gear.

Jere said...

If I was some war guy, and I got all fucked up in some war, I'd be like, Thanks for honoring me and all, but please, I never wanna see camo again.

nick said...

tie sucks..coulda been worse.

Sarah Gates said...

could have been worse

Jere said...

Wow, I wrote that before I saw ish's comment--wasn't a reaction to what he said. I'm just sayin'.

redsock said...

cue bill hicks joke about jesus coming back and seeing all the crucifixes and jackie o having someone come up to her with a rifle pendant, "thinkin' of john!"

.

ish said...

Wow, I wrote that before I saw ish's comment--wasn't a reaction to what he said. I'm just sayin'.

I love it when that happens.

Jere said...

I almost mentioned the Hicks joke, too! That's so funny you said that. I'm a huge Hicks fan...

ish said...

Game #2000 for Manny tonight.

ish said...

I almost mentioned the Hicks joke, too! That's so funny you said that. I'm a huge Hicks fan...

Me too. There must be a couple of moths on their way to the sun, saying "It's gonna be worth it."

nick said...

have you seen "Take Your Daughter To War" Day?

Patrick said...

speaking of cammo, my neighbor must be the weirdest guy on my street. When the occasion is right, and he is feeling patriotic like today, he hooks up a fake small howitzer to his Harley. The cannon sports two huge american flags, one for each side.

Brings tears to my eyes every time.

redsock said...

looooooooooove hicks.

not crazy about the whole goatboy or whatever it was, but his straight standup was genius. "whatchuu readin for?"

come on lowelly!

Sarah Gates said...

Oh the Onion. How can you not love the Onion!?

Grant Salzano said...

Nice that manny actually tries to walk when he knows he's slumping.

Patrick said...

...oh yea, and he was decked out in full cammo, and paraded his ass all over town.

Grant Salzano said...

Moot.

Patrick said...

Mike been doing that too much as of late...

ish said...

MDC warming.

ish said...

and Jeemer.

nick said...

passed ba... crap. pointless.

Sarah Gates said...

I think I'm glad I don't live on your block, Patrick.

Patrick said...

Try again, V-tek. This time a few more feet.

redsock said...

i'll have to see that onion later.

i see a shirt for sale at that link that seems made especially for me: "i'd rather be complaining"

ish said...

Felix reminds me of the young Yankees. Cano, Milk Dud, etc. Kinda got that same look. Can't really explain it.

Patrick said...

I think I'm glad I don't live on your block, Patrick.

For sure. I got a friend who's dad says he wouldn't vote for Obama because he's black....

Patrick said...

I agree Ish. He has the melky look.

Joe Grav said...

Remember when we used to hit the ball?

ish said...

Watching this guy singing on mute is the most entertaining thing ever. Watch his facial expressions! Priceless.

redsock said...

7th inning stretch ... after 1:29 of game!

Jere said...

we're thinkin' back east

Joe Grav said...

The Onion also has a shirt that says "The Sports team from My Area is Superior To the Sports Team from Your Area." And another one that says "WOO! SPORTS!"

ish said...

7th inning stretch ... after 1:29 of game!

GBA messing up our insanely quick ballgame.

nick said...

God Loves My Country

ish said...

We're evolving!

Jere said...

I hate Monday night deity blessing

redsock said...

I'm 6.5 innings late with this but ...

SAFECO -- home of the fuckin' greatest grilled salmon sandwich sold in major league fuckin' baseball. good god. yes.

Patrick said...

MMM, thats some good accordion...

phil said...

Is Colon still on a limited pitch count tonight? I wish I had any confidence that our relief staff could hold the score tied.

Joe Grav said...

http://www.theonion.com/content/node/33426

redsock said...

colon = 90 i think

Joe Grav said...

Strength, speed, and agility are just three of the qualities that the players on the team from your area lack. The players representing my area, on the other hand, have these traits in abundance.

ish said...

I'd like the Red Sox to start grilling some salmon soon.

Joe Grav said...

Pen

ish said...

Heh. Miguel Cairo.

So, we have two Yankees on this Mariners team. Yes, I'm calling Felix a Yankee. He's just got that look.

Sarah Gates said...

At least it's your friend's dad and not your friend, Patrick. If I have to see that sort of bigotry, I prefer it in older people.

Joe Grav said...

bullpen plz

Joe Grav said...

nice

redsock said...

faith - colon will not be obstructed

Grant Salzano said...

WHEW.

Jere said...

Didn't result in the "whole bunch of problems" Remy thought it would.

Sarah Gates said...

I think that will be the end of Bartolo for the night.

ish said...

This must be one of Buchholz's best starts of the season.

But wait! This ain't no HH!

Patrick said...

NICE! NICE! NICE! RUNS PUHLEEEASSEEEEE.

Jere said...

joe--he only gave up the one hard hit ball.

Patrick said...

If anything he's triple H.

Sarah Gates said...

I'd like the Red Sox to start grilling some salmon soon.

And sharing it with me. Mmmm... Salmon...

redsock said...

anyone else up for 27 or 30 innings tonight???

ish said...

anyone else up for 27 or 30 innings tonight???

Nope. 9 innings and a W, please.

And some grilled salmon for Sarah.

Joe Grav said...

I'd consider putting on the bunt here.

HI GRANT!

Jere said...

great fucking job Lugo

ish said...

Lugo showing his high baseball IQ...

Joe Grav said...

Sigh.

Grant Salzano said...

his ass had better be running to second base.

Grant Salzano said...

HI JOE!

Jere said...

He should've bunted the way he does for all those hits!

redsock said...

dont bunt to first base side, douche. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Joe Grav said...

come on jacob e.

Patrick said...

anyone else up for 27 or 30 innings tonight???

Hells yeah! I want to see Josh Beckett out there throwing in relief.

Grant Salzano said...

i REALLY think we should be stealing here...

Sarah Gates said...

Thanks Ish! Grilled salmon would wash that W down right nice.

Jere said...

Don't bunt at a pitch coming at your head, period

Grant Salzano said...

boy, that would have been a fail.

redsock said...

watch lugo get CS .....

Jere said...

Let's see if Lugo can somehow produce two more outs by himself

Joe Grav said...

...if Lugo got picked there, I would have jumped into the 42 inch sony lcd television and kicked loolio hugo in the go-nads

Jere said...

okay, just get the base hit here

ish said...

Let's see if FY is a good cook.
