G122: Red Sox 10, Rangers 0

Rangers - 000 000 000 -  0  6  0
Red Sox - 090 000 01x - 10 13 0
Until the Red Sox tacked on a meaningless run in the eighth inning, I was wondering what the record was for most runs scored by a team in one inning as its total runs in a shutout. (Actually, I am still wondering.)

In the second inning, Hunter became the hunted as the Red Sox said "Fair Warning" and, lord, they struck that poor boy down:
Youkilis (bfbb) singled to left
Bay (ccfb) flied to CF in left-center
Lowrie (bbc) singled to right, Youkilis to 3rd
Varitek (bsbfb) walked, Lowrie to 2nd
Crisp singled to left, Youkilis scored, Lowrie to 3rd, Varitek to 2nd
Cora (bb) hit by pitch, Lowrie scored, Varitek to 3rd, Crisp to 2nd
Drew (b) grounded into FC, Varitek scored, Crisp to 3rd, Cora out 4-6
Pedroia (cfb) doubled to left, Crisp scored, Drew to 3rd
Ortiz (b) homered to right, Drew, Pedroia and Ortiz scored
Youkilis (c) doubled off left wall
Bay (cbbbf) singled to left, Youkilis scored
Madrigal relieved Hunter
Lowrie (bcbsb) doubled to left, Bay scored
Varitek (bcbc) struck out swinging
Dice (7-6-0-5-5, 115) worked out of several mild jams (bases loaded/2 outs in the 2nd, 1st & 3rd/1 out in the 3rd, 1st & 2nd/2 outs in the 7th) and then watched as Manny Delcarman and Mike Timlin each tossed a perfect inning of relief.

Tampa Bay outlasted Oakland 7-6 in 12 innings. The idle Yankees are now 9.5 GB.

***

Tommy Hunter (10.61, 40 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.90, 154 ERA+)

Vicente Padilla had been the scheduled starter, but was scratched after receiving a cortisone shot for an inflamed muscle joint in the right side of his neck.

This is Hunter's third major league game. The 22-year-old RHP has allowed 16 hits (including three HR) and 11 runs in 9.1 innings. The leadoff batter has reached base in six of the 10 innings he has begun and opposing batters have a 1.261 OPS against Hunter with men on base.

Josh Hamilton will not be in tonight's lineup. He is back in Dallas with his wife, who will soon give birth to their third child.

Also: Rays/Athletics at 4 PM. The Yankees have the day off.

coco "burned to a" crisp
HATERED.

A Conformer said...

Any Thymes? A Lemon could count, sort of. Oregano, Parsley, Cumin, Cardamon... probably all no-go's.

phil said...

There's an Eddie Mayo and a Mayo Smith.

nixon33 said...

201 and i cant spell

L-girl said...

Benoit on the all sexual-aids team?

only you would say that

phil said...

Harry Sage.

L-girl said...

bob lemon - fruit/food team too

ish said...

Bob Lemon, Chet Lemon, Jim Lemon

ish said...

George Gerken...

A Conformer said...

Bob Spicer, who played all of 4 games in 55-56.

L-girl said...

Oh yeah Ofer, chili the spice, as opposed to chili the bean/meat food. Cool, he's in.

ish said...

Drew's out of the game... L's boy in.

L-girl said...

Gerken, good one!

ish said...

82 pitches in 5+ innings... par for the course for Dice.

nixon33 said...

totally off subject, but you people need to see the doc 'Heavy Metal Jr.'
24 min doc about a kid metal band from scotland.

they are called "Hatred"

hilarious.

L-girl said...

What happened to Drew?

L-girl said...

Nix, is it online? Or on DVD? I'd love to see that.

ish said...

I have no idea what's wrong with Drew. Don cites the fact it's 9-0. Maybe there is no injury.

A Conformer said...

Any reason behind the fiery switch in RF? Or just giving JD some rest on a blowout?

L-girl said...

Indian food is great for condiments, but I don't know what anything is called, except Raita.

nixon33 said...

i hope its just cause of the blowout

phil said...

Pickles Dillhoefer.

A Conformer said...

There's a bunch of currys.

ish said...

George Gerken's nickname was Pickles. Fitting.

redsock said...

sox up 9-0 -- if it holds, the line score will have zeroes in all spots except one.

could 9 be the record?

maybe a team got 10 or 11 in one inning and won 10-0 or 11-0????

L-girl said...

Pickles Dillhoefer - a double!

Plus he's in A's book.

nixon33 said...

l, i saw it on the sundance channel, but i think its available on dvd.

theres one part where they are wiriting a song and they need a title and after a long wait someone suggests
"what about....satan....rocks?"

then they debate over if it should be satan rock, or satan rocks
too funny

ish said...

I wonder when the Romanians play next for beach volleyball...

L-girl said...

So the all-condiment team is bigger than I thought it would be. Cool.

ish said...

Baseball eat third baseman!

L-girl said...

Nix, I've got to see that. How old are the kids?

nixon33 said...

like 9 or 10.
one of their dads is the manager...

redsock said...

Benoit on the all sexual-aids team?

Don't forget about Dildo Straponstein.

L-girl said...

Very cool. I write for/about kids that age. Where are they from? (Maybe you said, I don't remember.)

phil said...

9 or 10? Shouldn't they be on China's gymnastics team?

A Conformer said...

Papi refuses to hit if there aren't two men on base.

phil said...

Vibert Clarke?

A Conformer said...

Allan, you rooting for more runs, or for the 09000000 line score?

L-girl said...

Vibert? Is that really someone's name?

I was trying to think of vibes or lubes.

phil said...

I'm rooting for 090 000 90X

nixon33 said...

they are from scotland. i wish the movie was longer than 24 minutes.

A Conformer said...

Buttplug Jones?

L-girl said...

Of course anything could be a sexual aid. I mean, Chili Davis could be on that team, for somebody.

redsock said...

no more runs.

unless 9 would not be a record.

L-girl said...

buttplug jones! hilarious.

oh yeah, scotland, you said that. i will look for the movie.

nixon33 said...

bay sucks (kidding!)

phil said...

Vibert went by Webbo.

nixon33 said...

TRIPLE POST

dont forget the name TRIPOD LONG

phil said...

Oil Can Boyd? (kinky)

L-girl said...

Tripod Long should get together with Oil Can Boyd.

phil said...

Goat Anderson (for Remy).

L-girl said...

LOL

re goat/remy

phil said...

Scott Bullett.

A Conformer said...

I think that should be Remy's new nickname: The Goat Fucker.

L-girl said...

We missed an obvious one: Rocket.

nixon33 said...

A-ROD

L-girl said...

Goat Fucker, I'm all for it.

nixon33 said...

Michael Kay-Y

L-girl said...

Ofer did say all the rods. A, I and all the rest of those rods.

L-girl said...

Michael Kay-Y!!! Oh that is too funny.

A Conformer said...

Daisuke needs the innings. It'll be a shame if he doesn't get the 162 to qualify for the ERA title.

redsock said...

Yook's initials = KY.

Clemens also on the feminine hygenie team -- being a douche.

ish said...

Remy: Cosby didn't recognize me.

Don: So, he didn't say, 'Hey, Remdawg.'

phil said...

Rollie Fingers.

ish said...

Clemens also on the feminine hygenie team -- being a douche.

Justin Duchscherer before they started pronouncing his name correctly.

nixon33 said...

lenny "nails" dykstra

L-girl said...

Texas broadcast is interviewing some kids who sit out by the visiting bullpen. They make friends with the pitchers and bring them gifts.

Last night they brought dreidels - tonight they brought yamakas! (Not using that stupid "yarmulke" spelling.)

The showed all the pitchers putting their yamakas on. Very cute.

nixon33 said...

don and remy passing a joint around: giggles.

ish said...

Remy's threatening to sing Paul McCartney tunes if the Red Sox score more runs.

TRAITOR!!!!

"Maybe I'll sing a little bit if the Red Sox score some more runs. I'll sing a whole song if people keep pledging to the Jimmy Fund."

That's no way to fight cancer!

ish said...

Lookout, Ian.

So it seems NESN is using their old camera angle exclusively, and using the overhead one for replays.

L-girl said...

Nice work Dice K!

Tony said...

Nice pitching by Dice there to come back from 3-0 and finish the inning.

ish said...

One of the women's volleyball players for USA is on the all-porn names team... Misty May.

phil said...

40 more games after this, so figure he gets another 8 to pitch. He just needs to average a little over five innings each.

L-girl said...

One of the women's volleyball players for USA is on the all-porn names team... Misty May.

I bet she's heard that a few hundred times.

ish said...

Definitely nice to see him go 7 tonight, assuming you're talking about Dice.

SoSock said...

You realize that this is a VERY strange looking box score to one who has just pulled up GDGD.
9 runs in 6 innings, but 5 scoreless innings.
Weird.
Speaking of - what's up with werd?

ish said...

I bet she's heard that a few hundred times.

Probably.

A Conformer said...

Assuming he doesn't come out for the 8th, Matsuzaka's RA since returning from the DL: 7, 0, 1, 0, 0, 2, 6, 2, 1, 0. He certainly limited the damage to those two very bad outings. And in all the rest he gave the team a really good chance to win (which they did, mostly).

L-girl said...

Sosock, I don't think we heard if anything is wrong with JD. We think it's just a rest with a big lead.

redsock said...

MDC and Cash in

nixon33 said...

now that we're blowing them out you can put coco in, oh wait...

L-girl said...

A chance of MDC to redeem himself a little.

ish said...

MDC, Cash new battery.

ish said...

Let's just say there's not much worry about a comeback tonight from Texas.

Tony said...

Has Drew gotten a hit in the Texas series? I assume he has 1 or 2...

L-girl said...

TX anncrs babbling about Cheers.

For a long time.

A. Long. Time.

nixon33 said...

newsday reporting that maddog has left WFAN

L-girl said...

Jere reported that hours ago. Newsday must have heard it from Jere.

A Conformer said...

Lo-Lev MDC, as always, is great.

Tony said...

A 1-2-3 Delcarmen inning. Do my eyes deceive me?

L-girl said...

We used to love him. Maybe we'll love him again.

ish said...

Next up on WFAN, it's Mike and the!

L-girl said...

FY!

nixon33 said...

didnt see the Jere Report.

excuuuuuuuuuuse me! (kidding!)

A Conformer said...

My new thing is rooting for the O's and BJ's every night, so that at least one of them will pass the MFY in the standings. What's better than an October with no Yankees? Fourth place Yankees, of course.

Amy said...

Good evening, all. Glad to see we are far ahead, though after the game on Tuesday, one can never be complacent.

phil said...

GDGD says that was both a double and an error. Clever.

ish said...

Good on Tito for giving some of the big guys some rest. :)

L-girl said...

Why is the TX anncr saying Jeff Bailey is having his 1st ML AB?

ish said...

Drat. There goes the 9 and zeros. lmao.

Ribeye for the Gumball!

L-girl said...

Hi Amy! I was just wondering when you'd show up.

There goes Allan's linescore hopes.

phil said...

First gumball hit this year.

L-girl said...

All I want is a Yankeeless October, but I have to admit, 4th place would be pretty damn cool.

L-girl said...

First ML hit, cool.

L-girl said...

I should know better than to listen to the announcers, they are always wrong. As Phil said, first hit this year.

Amy said...

Yeah, I was out to dinner with a friend who moved to DC three years ago who was back for a visit. Last night we were in Brooklyn seeing the kids' new apartment. Two games in a row that I missed all but the last inning or so.

Amy said...

How's Tala smelling, btw?

L-girl said...

How was Brooklyn?

I missed last night's game altogether, as I usually do on Weds.

ish said...

Yeah, I remember Gumball hit a dong last year.

redsock said...

cora = jeterian

L-girl said...

She only smells bad if you put your face right up against her neck or face. Same w/ Cody.

Tala has an orange tinge, though. Like she had a henna rinse.

phil said...

It's his second ML hit. He got his first last year.

L-girl said...

Right, I corrected myself on the next comment.

I made the mistake of listening to the announcers.

ish said...

First round of dirty water is on me!

Amy said...

Brooklyn was great. A lot of driving (6 hours back and forth) for a three hour visit, but it was worth it to see them and their new apartment. Nice brownstone in Park Slope.

DIRTY WATER!! Very dirty.

L-girl said...

Very dirty water!

phil said...

Indeed, Bailey's first hit was a solo shot.

L-girl said...

Where in the Slope?

I love brownstones.

phil said...

Also water.

Amy said...

Orange tint from the useless tomato juice, I assume. I thought the tomato juice was a myth also. Someone told me that it's just that the smell of the juice masks the skunk until it wears off, which is fairly quickly.

Amy said...

8th Avenue and Lincoln Pk.

ish said...

And ha ha ha Yankees... both Boston and Tampa win on their off-day.

Tony said...

Wow, stepped away for a few minutes and missed the rest of the game. Ah well. Agua sucia!

Have a good night, everybody!

Amy said...

Ish, we aren't supposed to be happy that Tampa won. Even if it does set the Yankees further back.

L-girl said...

We used to live right near there. Nice block.

Coincidentally where my parents lived when they were first married, but it was a slum then.

L-girl said...

Everyone feels differently about the Tampa/Yankees thing. I think a lot of JoSers root against the Yankees even if it's not better for us.

Amy said...

Not a slum any more, but still a fairly funky/diverse neighborhood. We had a good meal at a place a few blocks away. Brooklyn is all new to us. Without the GPS we would have been totally lost!

ish said...

Ish, we aren't supposed to be happy that Tampa won. Even if it does set the Yankees further back.

I'm not happy Tampa won. But they won and there's nothing that can be done about it, so I chose to laugh at New York for it. I think that's where I stand on the New York/Tampa thing. The Rays need to lose. But if they've already won there's nothing that can be done about it so I'm not going to get angry about it.

Amy said...

I have no problem rooting against the Yankees, but I do think that doesn't mean hoping that we don't gain ground on the Rays.

Amy said...

Gotcha, Ish. I can agree with that.

SoSock said...

Wow, had a long conversation with a nurse (completely innocent) and retun to see that GDGD thinks Timlin had a OTT inning. Of course we all know that's impossible.
What really happened ? (JK)

ish said...

I'll be missing tomorrow night's game thread and missing Paul Byrd's start because I've got luxury box tickets up in Portland to see the Sea Dogs.

phil said...

The internet suggests mixing detergent, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda. And when did the internet ever let you down?

Amy said...

So from Wash Hts to Bklyn---lots of NY covered there!

ish said...

Wow, had a long conversation with a nurse (completely innocent) and retun to see that GDGD thinks Timlin had a OTT inning. Of course we all know that's impossible.
What really happened ? (JK)


I think he was throwing spitballs.

Amy said...

Cute, Sosock!

I will miss tomorrow also. Three games in a row that I won't really see more than an inning or so. That makes me sad, even though I am out doing other fun things.

SoSock said...

Luxery Box Seats?
Wow, that step up to AA mut make quite a difference.
In W-S the only boxes are the press box, which will hold all of 12 peopl or so, and 1 ownrs box, about the same size.

In fairness, they are building a new park downtown, and it will probably have some boxes. Not sure if they'll actually get anybody to pay for them though.

SoSock said...

Amy, I too have been a last inning or so participant the last few days.
Unfortunately it's because I'm trapped in a hospital room until Sockette gets over this fluid on the lungs thing.
11 days now - yeesh.

I have to tell you though. It was hilarious seeing the expression on the face of the nurse who has been reassuring my wife with borderline messianic quotes when she walked in on 2 rabbis singing a prayer in Hebrew.

Amy said...

SoSock, I hope you and your wife are out of there soon. Two rabbis? How'd you get two?

SoSock said...

We have a new rabbi at our temple. Young guy from Atlanta by way of LA. It's the 1st time they've ever had a second one. He'll handle the religious school and just generally assist. He was making the rounds with the older one meeting and getting to know his way around.
Shalom ya'll

L-girl said...

Not a slum any more, but still a fairly funky/diverse neighborhood.

No, not really. It's pretty much gentrified. It hasn't been funky or diverse for a good 20 years.

So from Wash Hts to Bklyn---lots of NY covered there!

Other way around. I lived in Brooklyn first, then Allan moved there to live with me, then we both moved to WH, and lived there most of our time together in NYC.
