G95: Orioles 7, Red Sox 3

Orioles - 200 020 021 - 7  7  1
Red Sox - 020 100 000 - 3 8 1
After two were out in the bottom of the ninth, Boston loaded the bases, bringing the tying run to the plate, but Youkilis fanned.

Buchholz (5-5-4-5-6, 107) had a rough first (single, double, three walks) and a rough fifth (single, triple, two walks), but looked great in the middle. He struck out the side in the third, then fanned two of the three batters he faced in a perfect fourth.

Pedroia went 0-for-3 with two walks, ending a 17-game hitting streak. Ramirez and Moss both had two hits. Lugo had two RBI, the third time this season he has driven in more than one run in as game.

Tampa lost 5-0 -- New York lost 5-0.

***

Brian Burres (5.07, 83 ERA+) / Clay Buchholz (5.53, 78 ERA+)

With the Red Sox only 1.5 GB, Buchholz returns to the Red Sox rotation.

Double H was put on the disabled list in mid-May with a torn fingernail on his right hand and while in AAA, he worked on altering his delivery. In nine starts (log), he posted a 2.47 ERA.

Also: Justin Masterson threw a perfect inning of relief for the PawSox on Thursday night against Norfolk, retiring the side in the sixth inning on 16 pitches (F7, 5-3, K).

AL East: Tampa is in Cleveland, while the Yankees (3rd, 6.5 GB) visit the Blue Jays. The Rays, Cubs, Angels and Red Sox all have a MLB-best 55 wins.

Okay, who went with quad on their voodoo doll?

redsock said...

Yeah, "oh no". That's it.

Amy said...

What did Lugo do to himself?

Joe Grav said...

damnit i missed 601

L-girl said...

"Oo, Alex Cora is on my girl's team!"

/self-parody

Grant Salzano said...

We have decent hitters up, which sucks because now it's gonna make me think we have a chance...

ish said...

Looking like the quad. Which would explain why he wasn't limping much walking back to the dugout. Ouch.

But maybe he'll be okay. Hard to see guys get hurt.

Jere said...

The nosepick video will be up momentarily. I think.

nick said...

fuck. lugo's hurt. kiss october goodbye.

I just spent two innings reading this whole thread.

redsock said...

Tell you little story 'bout a shortstop named Jed .....

Grant Salzano said...

!

Joe Grav said...

Oh....

Amy said...

Here we come! Dare I get my hopes up??

L-girl said...

601, we don't see that often.

Amy's right. We'll lose by 1 run.

Joe Grav said...

Oh my..

If only we had Big Papi

ish said...

TOOK HIS EYE OFF THE BALL!

So, first and second with Pedroia up... then Youk?

redsock said...

FAY-E!

Joe Grav said...

At the very least, we are using up their closer before the rest of the wkd series

Grant Salzano said...

I started punching the shit out of my couch until I saw that happen...

Oh man...

oh man...

oh man...

Jere said...

The funny nosepick. (My parents make a cameo.)

Pedroia gets another chance to extend....

redsock said...

Not in the mood for a tease.

ish said...

Anyone want to change their guess as to how many runs will be scored in this half-inning? Two out... men on first and second with Pedroia up?

L-girl said...

I thought they only make voodoo dolls of Roger Clemens and G*$? L%#^!@?.

That's what Allan told me.

nick said...

oh look, every 200 posts it starts a new page. never noticed that before. Did I tell you about putting emma to bed?

Grant Salzano said...

Not in the mood for a tease.

I frigging agree >:o

ish said...

Ooooh that's a classic nose pick! I love how he looks down to see what he's found.

Joe Grav said...

Come on Petey lol

He is either going to get a hit or pop out on the first pitch

nixon33 said...

jere, yr too much. yr parents have an awesome pad.

Jere said...

Thta's a complete game nosepick right there.

L-girl said...

Nick, I was going to do you w/ Emma, but it seemed unfair. Good job you did it yourself.

ish said...

I don't know why Halladay would need to be digging for gold if he's already got lots of money.

Grant Salzano said...

I am way, way too nervous for a game like this.

ish said...

Still down by four runs with 2 out. Deep breath.

Joe Grav said...

Work that count

Grant Salzano said...

Oh man...... hitter's count.

Just get on base, dude!!!!!!

L-girl said...

That's the video? Geez. No wonder I don't usually click on these things.

Grant Salzano said...

COME ON PEDROIA

ish said...

Francona's got that look in his eye.

Joe Grav said...

Yes

ish said...

OH BOY. Now we can get antsy in our pantsy!

Grant Salzano said...

YEAH!!!!!

COME ON YOUKILIS!!!

L-girl said...

Walked him! Holy shit.

WE NEED PAPI!!!!!!!!

Joe Grav said...

I wish we had Big Papi...

Amy said...

Tying run at the bat!

nixon33 said...

LETS FUCKING GO!

nick said...

pensive shatner.

L-girl said...

omg

ish said...

William Shatner has another look in his eye. An opposite look.

Amy said...

Haha. At bat. Too many cosmos.

nixon33 said...

from sosh
"I've started jerking off so that my balls won't hurt when they lose by one run."

redsock said...

It's time for the

SULTAN OF SWEAT

L-girl said...

omg omg omg

Grant Salzano said...

Damn, come on...

ish said...

Sultan of Sweat. GOLD.

nick said...

I hate the freakin' suspense. just dong it!

L-girl said...

thanks nix, we needed that

Grant Salzano said...

That felt like a kick in the balls, no?

nick said...

no. not that way.

L-girl said...

*sigh*

Amy said...

Shit. That sucks.

nixon33 said...

FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

ish said...

I WIN!!!! I was right! 0 runs! WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER.


Blah. Clean water, but they didn't go 1-2-3. Tying run to the plate. They lost, but I don't feel TOO bad about this one now. And the other two teams of interest lost. Get after'm again tomorrow night.

Amy said...

I guess I can read the thread as some consolation. Pooey.

nixon33 said...

well at least the other two lost as well

redsock said...

I was holding back on the Sultan until he hit one, but I thought it might help here.

Shit on a cracker.

Jere said...

crap. Too bad that ump was off by nearly a full step on that earlier play. (Since I wasn't here before to complaion about it.)

ish said...

I'll bet this is the highest amount of comments this thread has seen in a loss.

Jere said...

I got 601, but more importantly, 666!

redsock said...

Yook clearly obsessed with Heidi's fun bags. DFA him.

nick said...

almost 700 posts and not one mention of 7/11 (3G iphone launch--utterly borked by the way).

ish said...

crap. Too bad that ump was off by nearly a full step on that earlier play. (Since I wasn't here before to complaion about it.)

Back in the second inning, was it? We were listening to it on the radio and my mother said, "Bullshit!" And I said, "We're listening to the RADIO. You didn't see that play!"

L-girl said...

After the EI broadcast ends, they switch you over to Toronto sports-talk radio audio. I heard 2 seconds of a call-in show, some caller saying, "I watched the game on the New York broadcast, I'm in New York tonight, and they were awful! They didn't give Roy Halladay any credit, all they kept saying was Joba Chamberlain this, Joba Chamberlain that...!" Then I turned it off. Classic.

Jere said...

Has to be one of the worst calls of the last, well, ever.

L-girl said...

Why would anyone on this thread talk about the iphone?

ish said...

Hard to believe that I came in so late, yet, it was 340 comments ago.

Jere said...

Yeah, from what I saw, Singleton and the Masturbator kept saying, "great starting pitching tonight."

nick said...

uh...cause of the mlb app that debuted with the app store and os2.0, of course.

and sexy gadgets.

iphone>heidi.

ish said...

Why would anyone on this thread talk about the iphone?

iBork

L-girl said...

it's true, at least everyone else lost, we didn't lose any ground. we could be tied for first by the break.

ish said...

I must respectfully disagree with you, my friend.

If Heidi showed legitimate interest in you, but you had the opportunity to get a new iPhone and she'd disappear forever... You'd get the iPhone?

L-girl said...

for those of us who don't care about the friggin asg, it's almost a whole week without baseball!

L-girl said...

anything > iphone

*biggest yawn ever*

L-girl said...

bon soir

a demain

nick said...

heidi's a flash in the pan. with the iphone you have to sign a 2-year contract.

There's lots of pretty girls in the world, but no phone/pda matches the iphone for sexiness.

my palm is forlorn at my unsightly gadget lust.

redsock said...

could the iphone have hit a game-tying dong?

no?

then phuck the phone.

Joe Grav said...

This one pissed me off way more than usual

redsock said...

Still 1.5.

And there is a game tomorrow.

Joe Grav said...

fuck the i-Anything

Joe Grav said...

Heidi > IPhone

I can't believe we're having this converstion

Also
!@$#!@#!@#!

ish said...

I don't feel bad about this one.

redsock said...

Joe Grav said...

i feel crappy about it. it was lame. i hate the teases. so much.

redsock said...

Software problems bug Apple's launch of new iPhone
"Kenny Pichardo, 24, was the first to buy an iPhone 3G at an AT&T store in the New York borough of Queens, but he said it took the store half an hour to get the phone activated."

Heidi don't need to 30 minutes to get activated.

Joe Grav said...

zomg heidi

Joe Grav said...

Heidi don't need to 30 minutes to get activated.

snort

nick said...

heidi + iphone = swoon.

Joe Grav said...

Maybe if Heidi called me on her iphone.

redsock said...

Fuck.

Heidi don't need no 30 minutes ...

(And I read it over first...)

redsock said...

Alright, going to eat.

Modding will clog the bases for a bit.

nick said...

Heidi don't need to 30 minutes to get activated.

snap!

nick said...

ooh just saw the suck call on lugo at first. seriously that guy gets shafted.

Joe Grav said...

right at 700, too

SoSock said...

Ok, you all didn't hold up your end of the bargain.
I was supposed to come home from service to a W.
And no... I did NOT pray for one.
How the hell do we get 680 odd comments for a weekday loss?
And not even a particularly close loss. (did I spell that right?)

ish said...


Heidi don't need to 30 minutes to get activated.


Who knows? Maybe she does.

Joe Grav said...

Fuck Brett Favre
that is all

Joe Grav said...

"terrence, why would you call me a pig fucker?"
"well lets see. Because you fuck pigs!"
"oh yeah!"

Amy said...

Loved the parodies! Especially the one about me dropping in and leaving to have dinner with Harvey. I read it to him, but he didn't get it. Guess you have to be here to get it.

So hopefully next week I will get more thread time with the family leaving tomorrow. I miss you all!

Joe Grav said...

We miss you too, Amy. Nobody cares about my Kent Graham updates without you around.

nixon33 said...

l-girl said...
HELL YEAH I FUCKING HATE THE YANKEES

was that a passable nix?


hahahaha

Joe Grav said...

i love these guys trying to say 'the REALLY bad news is Lugo's injury' with a straight face

Jere said...

New locations for the two vids (I, er, a friend of mine had to move them):

The kiss behind Heidi.

The Halladay pick (definitely not a scratch.)

ish said...

The kiss is already dead on youtube.

Jere said...

ish--I deleted the originals, and put them in a new place. I mean, my horrible friend did.

A couple of years old, but still pretty good.

L-girl said...

I remember the MAD TV clip that was making the rounds. Cute.
