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.

here's to hoping for 40 runs this series!

Jere said...

Um...one of the most embarrassing moments in TV history just happened. Bill Cosby's on the pregame, talking all about the Jimmy Fund, since the annual telethon is going on. It quickly became apparent that Bill thought the charity he's helping raise money for is the "Jimmy V" foundation--the one that came from the death of basketball coach Jim Valvano. Tom Caron did a great job of just moving on... but oh my god. I felt kinda like the way I felt for that Feldman guy the other night. Under-table crawling stuff. (Unless he just happened to be bringing up the other charity. But I'm pretty sure he's confusing the two...did anyone else see this?)

redsock said...

A's tie it up at 5-5 in the bottom of the 9th. 2 outs, winning run at 1st.

Zenslinger said...

Frank Thomas ties it up in the bottom of the ninth vs. the Rays! 5-5.

Zeigler gave up his first run in the Majors this year for the A's.

Zenslinger said...

Extra innings for the Rays & A's.

L-girl said...

one of the most embarrassing moments in TV history just happened.

Must have been worse than it sounds in re-telling.

L-girl said...

A Mel OTT inning for Dice.

L-girl said...

Oh shit, that's not true. I missed the walk.

nixon33 said...

heh, this hunter guy has a "tutti grandi culo"

L-girl said...

GO A'S!!!!

L-girl said...

yes, he's a beefy boy

redsock said...

so thus pitcher - 3rd MLB game, 10+ ERA

he'll be gone by the 4th or he'll throw a 3-hit shutout.

nixon33 said...

the A's: prolonging not losing.

nixon33 said...

not sure how many of you have been watching the rays game, but percival had to leave the game with an apparent hamstring injury.

L-girl said...

Feel free to update us, we can't watch both at once, we can only flip over during commercials.

redsock said...

impossible. only yankees get hurt.

hank told me so.

nixon33 said...

1st & 3rd no outs for the FKR

nixon33 said...

passed ball, oakland recovers and get the out at the plate. 1 out, man on 2nd

Jere said...

L: I'm just sayin', imagine you were at a charity's biggest event they have, and you're the biggest celebrity guest, and you basically announce to everyone that you don't even know which charity you're raising money for. He was even talking about Jim Valvano's wife and how he was a great coach, etc.

nixon33 said...

:o
the a's get out of trouble

even if the rays win, they have been playing like shit as of late.

Jere said...

Okay, one of the most embarrassing moments in NESN history. History covering the years 2005-2008....

L-girl said...

I'm just sayin'

Well, actually, you were saying it "one of the most embarrassing moments in TV history", and I just kind of doubt that. What with live TV, working mics that were believed to be off, and whatnot.

It does sound cringeworthy, tho.

L-girl said...

Okay, one of the most embarrassing moments in NESN history. History covering the years 2005-2008....

Ah, I'm sure you're closer there.

Jere said...

Did I ever tell you my theory on Dice? I think he thinks, Hey, I've got three empty bases to work with. If there's anyone I don't want to face, or if the count goes 2-0, I can just go ahead and walk up to three guys! Why not? I can throw 200 pitches if I have to...

and it seems to be working this year.

nixon33 said...

think about it, Frank Catalanatto has the perfect name for Bob Sheppard.

L-girl said...

think about it, Frank Catalanatto has the perfect name for Bob Sheppard.

You're right! I heard an interview where he said his favourite name to say (at the time) was Shigetosi Hasagawa.

Jere said...

I always liked "Alvaro... Es...pinosa."

redsock said...

well the bases are full now - so get outs

L-girl said...

We have the Rangers anncrs tonight, so if Don & Jerry do anything crazy, let us know.

L-girl said...

I always liked "Alvaro... Es...pinosa."

Me too me too!! I can hear it perfectly in my mind, the exact cadence.

nixon33 said...

l-girl, right?! i can hear it sweetly in my head.
i wonder what other names are his favorites?

redsock said...

2 of the rangers in tonight's lineup have "tala" in their names. i suppose our dog is rooting for them....

nixon33 said...

rays/a's to the 12th.

phil said...

MVPyook

Jere said...

I don't think they're gonna get too crazy with this lymphoma survivor. It'll be all Jimmy Find stuff tonight. They even have the phone # on the screen at all times. Imagine if they put what they do with Sox Appeal into the Jimmy Fund stuff year round! Cancer would be completely cured!

L-girl said...

Tala just wants us to be happy. She wouldn't root for the Rangers.

phil said...

Your dog is rooting for bacon and you know it.

L-girl said...

What lymphoma survivor?

Imagine if they put what they do with Sox Appeal into the Jimmy Fund stuff year round! Cancer would be completely cured!

Good point.

L-girl said...

Mmmm, bacon...

Jere said...

They've got a cancer survivor in the booth. I don't know if he's a known guy or what. But he's made it 13 years. Nice job.

nixon33 said...

pena dong, rays 6, A's 5

phil said...

Pena homer in the top of the 12th. 6-5 FKR.

L-girl said...

We had to mute the game. MUMS alert.

nixon33 said...

GLOVES

phil said...

Cancer's just your body deciding to blow itself up. Girardi should give it one of his motivational speeches and tell it to cut that shit out.

<3 Jed.

Jere said...

up from the ground came a bubblin single

L-girl said...

ha ha jere, good!

redsock said...

Girardi should give it one of his motivational speeches and tell it to cut that shit out.

Tell cancer it's not getting any post-game ice cream and it'll be in remission toot fucking sweet.

phil said...

C'mon Tek. Enlarge those post-marital estate values.

phil said...

7-5 FKR.

L-girl said...

7-5? Chances are slim for the A's. They've already come back once today.

redsock said...

man, they really put the F in FKR...

Jere said...

Remy saying Farrell should tell Dice to pretend the bases are loaded all the time. No! That'll ruin his perfectly good system.

Thanks, L.

L-girl said...

How bout it, Ococ?

Jere said...

Nice ribbie, Coco.

phil said...

Run(s)!

L-girl said...

And it drops in! The Ococinator comes through.

Jere said...

Good baserunning by Lowrie. He had that right in front of him and could tell pretty early it was gonna drop. He was the one guy they could've forced, but he made it so there was no chance.

L-girl said...

Our snow-white dog has a bit of an orange glow from her tomato juice bath.

phil said...

Met a nice white-striped kitty?

Jere said...

nice ribbie, Cora

redsock said...

good move, einstein!!!

L-girl said...

That's why you were posting those "kitties" the other night.

phil said...

Nice rbi, Cora.

Bottom three producing.

phil said...

Still an rbi.

Jere said...

This guy isn't even the best T. Hunter in the league.

L-girl said...

Pitch over Pede's head, cue comment about his height...

phil said...

I'm finding this too funny on FJM:

Mark: Joe, as of right now who is the AL MVP?

Joe Morgan: That's difficult to answer because the season is not over,


KT: The question was "as of right now."

Theoretical Joe Morgan: Right, and it's hard to answer because of what will happen in the future.

KT: But...the question is: right now, who's the MVP. Like, now. At this moment.

TJM: But I can't answer that, because I can't tell the future.

KT: Hang on. Let me try something. What time is it.

TJM: No way to tell.

KT: Because you don't know what time it will be in the future?

TJM: Correct.

KT: Fair enough.

redsock said...

not even the best t. hunter in the park

cws hit 4 straight dongs today.

..

MOUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

my internet was out for a sec:

COCOCOCKSUCKER DID SOMETHING


OUR TEAM IS AWESOME FY!

Jere said...

pedroia's fucking awesome

L-girl said...

Fuck yeah!

phil said...

Hurting them early, as usual.

phil said...

So if Tek has said he's going to give Pedroia his C when he retires, does Pedroia get his wife too?

redsock said...

QUADRANGULAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jere said...

YEAHHHH, 3 run dong. The home version of the Red Sox rule!

L-girl said...

PAPI DONG!!!!

Loooove this Ranger pitching!

phil said...

<3 Papi.

nixon33 said...

PAPI DONG

nixon33 said...

WOW THIS IS SILLY!

phil said...

Kurt Suzuki with the runs-coring double-play. 7-6 FKR, two out.

Jere said...

Remy: Youk="so hot"

Don: Youk="red hot"

phil said...

*run-scoring

L-girl said...

I think that would be up to Tek's wife. What with slavery being illegal and all.

phil said...

Kevin "two K in one inning" Youkilis tries a change of pace.

phil said...

What with slavery being illegal and all.

They live in Georgia, though.

L-girl said...

Pretty sure it's illegal there, too.

phil said...

Giddy games are giddy.

redsock said...

LEAVE HIM IN!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

So their starter went 1-2/3? Wow.

Jere said...

Does the pitcher get a free punch at Catalanotto?

Speaking of his name--the way Trup said it always cracked me up. He's put a long O in there. NOE-TOE....

redsock said...

hunter era now 15.55

phil said...

7-6 FKR final.

If only they'd ever lose.

nixon33 said...

Rays win.

redsock said...

roll up

for the madrigal mystery tour

L-girl said...

They only lose on days we lose.

nixon33 said...

ius that actress lady they are in love with going to call in?

redsock said...

NYY now 9.5 GB.

Only 2 games ahead of the 4th place Blue Jays!

L-girl said...

Renee Russo? That makes me glad we have the TX broadcast.

L-girl said...

Wheeee....!

Jere said...

Rays lost 2 nights ago.

9! Come on, double-digit run inning!

phil said...

Jed!

Jere said...

Oh you know Russo's thinking about calling. Haven't heard from her yet tonight.

redsock said...

HUNTER: 1.2-7-9-1-1

nixon33 said...

i love lowrie. fuck you lugo

phil said...

13 doubles in 124 at bats.

L-girl said...

Rays lost 2 nights ago.

I didn't mean it literally. They obviously lose once in a while.

They're just a fucking good team.

nixon33 said...

VARISUCK

phil said...

Would've been too much.

Zenslinger said...

Normally, you'd think, "Oh, we're scorin' a bunch of runs, we're going to win no problem."

Normally. But in this series, the longer this inning goes on, the more of a nailbiter the game's bound to be!

Jere said...

L: I was talking to Phil. I thought.

A Conformer said...

Ah, so close to 2 10-run innings in one series. That has probably never happened.

A Conformer said...

Good evening, all, BTW.

L-girl said...

Oh sorry Jere. I was pretty much saying the same thing.

nixon33 said...

think about how many awesome guys we have on our team from our farm system.
CRAZY AWESOME

L-girl said...

Good evening, Non-Con.

L-girl said...

Normally. But in this series, the longer this inning goes on, the more of a nailbiter the game's bound to be!

Yeah, this series is anything but normal.

Jere said...

Our innings this series: 1 2 2 2 2 4 4 9 10. And nine 0s.

phil said...

I'd like to think Matsusaka couldn't give up eight runs in an inning, though.

A Conformer said...

Normally, you'd think, "Oh, we're scorin' a bunch of runs, we're going to win no problem."

Normally. But in this series, the longer this inning goes on, the more of a nailbiter the game's bound to be!


Well, to be fair, first-start-in-the-big-leagues Charlie Zink started that game. As opposed to sub-3-ERA Matsuzaka. He might walk more than 10, but I can't see the Sox giving up double digit runs when he's pitching.

Unless we trade back for Hansen...

redsock said...

rangers tv guy saying the Wall was built only in the 1930s.

when the park opened in 1912, the wall was 25 feet high. it was later raised a bit more to 37.

PICTURES EXIST OF THIS!!!!!!!!!

idiots.

phil said...

That'll do.

nixon33 said...

MANNY?? AGAIN???

L-girl said...

Allan: "Dice K toying with Milton Bradley"

L-girl said...

Uh-oh Nix, who's doing what?

nixon33 said...

remy starting with his "im not going to manny bash, but..."

A Conformer said...

Funny that everyone turns my username into non-conformer... Can't people handle the fact that I am a conformer, and not the other way around? (:

redsock said...

DON'T MAKE ME TRANSCRIBE THAT SHIT!!!

L-girl said...

It's just cause we know better, Ofer.

ish said...

I'm here! Did I miss anything? :>)

Jere said...

"Manny's my favorite and all, but TRUST US, bad stuff happened behind closed doors, even though we have no proof of it." -Remy. (That's not a real quote. Gist.)

nixon33 said...

i dont know what all was said as i walked out of the room for a sec to hear him talk about "there was probably a lot of stuff that we dont know about"

i wonder what else he said as they were showing tito

Jere said...

that's the gist, Nix. They did say how he's still one of their all-time faves, and how they check the DOdger game every night.

Jere said...

4 runs away from Tim's 40 for the series.

A Conformer said...

4 runs away from Tim's 40 for the series.

So we should be there by the middle of the fourth, or so.

A Conformer said...

Sorry, end of the fourth, obviously.

ish said...

i wonder what else he said as they were showing tito

He didn't say too much more. What Remy did say was he wasn't going to Manny bash. Then he got in a jab or two before moving on.

Pepe Lepew said...

I just got back from supper. Have we scored any runs yet? :)

redsock said...

rangers pbp guy now saying pesky wrapped home runs around the right field pole.

newspaper accounts show that pesky hit exactly ZERO home runs down by the pole that now has his name.

L-girl said...

What Remy did say was he wasn't going to Manny bash.

I'm not a racist, but...

phil said...

I'm not saying Remy fucks goats. I'm just saying a lot of bad stuff happens behind closed doors that we have no proof of. Like fucking goats.

L-girl said...

rangers pbp guy now saying pesky wrapped home runs around the right field pole.

He's got plenty of company when it comes to that myth.

Hey, not so long ago we heard the No No Nanette crap. I think it was the trivia q one night.

L-girl said...

Did you hear, Jerry Remy is a goat fucker!!!

Jere said...

Seems like the Pesky RF-line HR total goes down every year...

L-girl said...

How did it get to be known as the Pesky pole? I don't remember.

A Conformer said...

What Remy did say was he wasn't going to Manny bash.

I'm not a racist, but...


Listen, I know it's not my business, but...

phil said...

Pesky sure hit a lot of homeruns in his career for a guy who hit 17 of them.

redsock said...

pesky hit only 17 HR -- 10 at fenway.

easy to check.

phil said...

Parnell made some shit up. It stuck. Broadcasters have that ability.

L-girl said...

Listen, I know it's not my business, but...

Right, that's a good one! I always want to say SO SHUT UP.

L-girl said...

Parnell made some shit up. It stuck.

Remember, I don't go back too far with this team. I don't even know who Parnell is.

phil said...

GDGD scored the Byrd groundout as a single. Drunk monkeys at the keyboard?

phil said...

Mel Parnell. Mostly before my time.

9casey said...

Jere said...
Um...one of the most embarrassing moments in TV history just happened.



It must be right up there with some guy showing you how to eat a hot dog the right way, a veggie dog noless....:)

Tony said...

Evening all...yet another monster inning, I see. How in the HELL did Dice put 7 guys on in the first 4 innings and not give up any runs?

Jere said...

The hotdog lesson was classic TV. Classic!

9casey said...

Tony said...

The same way he always does....

redsock said...

rangers guy says ted williams hit a ton when he was 42 and calls him "the nolan ryan version of hitting".

this man must die.

9casey said...

Jere said...

You're shot....

Jere said...

This is a good little wrap-up of Pesky Pole from a few years back.

L-girl said...

yoooook

L-girl said...

Thanks Jere, I'll check it out.

redsock said...

trooooooooooooooped
on
yoooooooooooooooook

fuck fsn

A Conformer said...

Jarrod Saltalamacchia is in so many All-X teams:
The all tala team (along with Catalanotto and probably a couple others)
The all blunt objects team (jar, rod).
The all rod team (along with countless rodriguezes).
The all condiment team.
Theo's dream, the all-J team.
The all South American cities team (Salta)
Probably some more.

Jere said...

Don't know if Nix or somebody else mentioned this: Mad Dog Russo released from WFAN! Mike & the Mad Dog are split up after 20 years!

phil said...

3/3.

A Conformer said...

rangers guy says ted williams hit a ton when he was 42 and calls him "the nolan ryan version of hitting".

this man must die.


Sounds like he's going through the entire history of the Boston Red Sox.
What the fuck did he talk about the first two games?

ish said...

I wonder if Theo's related to that family in Arkansas who has 18 kids who's names all start with J.

L-girl said...

Ofer outdoes himself on the all-x teams. Very nice.

Condiments, that gets me thinking. You hear about mustard and relish, but did they play anywhere?

Playing pepper, too.

nixon33 said...

Lugo: Honorable Suicide

ish said...

Jason, you're a free man! Hit like one!

L-girl said...

TX anncrs talking about Tampa Bay, will they hold it together "down the stretch, with the Yankees and the Red Sox...".

CHECK YOUR STANDINGS, GUYS.

Tony said...

Another Tek K. Great.

ish said...

A lot of Peppers played in the major leagues. Don Pepper, Bob Pepper, Pepper Peploski...

L-girl said...

I think a whole generation of boys got J names. The Jason (and Jayson) brigade.

phil said...

Trying to decide: keep this as my desktop background or switch to this?

Tony said...

Just out of curiosity, what is the Fenway reaction when Tek bats? Are they supportive, or do they know that Tek's a living, breathing out right now?

L-girl said...

Peppers, for sure. Mustard, ketchup, relish and salsa, maybe not.

nixon33 said...

Tek offensive skills divorced him long ago.

ish said...

Ha. One of the coolest names of an old-time ballplayer: Sugar Cain.

L-girl said...

I'd stay with the 1st pic, but I don't like the 2nd pic at all.

A Conformer said...

There's a guy called Chili Davis, isn't there?

L-girl said...

Sugar Cain! Sugar a nickname b/c of his last name?

L-girl said...

Chili Davis, a mainstay of my all-food team. But that's a food, not a condiment.

redsock said...

The Rangers are playing ketchup tonight.

phil said...

It's a condiment on hotdogs, I hear.

ish said...

Someone should remember to tell Dice-K that the score is 9-0 and to STOP NIBBLING.

ish said...

FUCK YEAH!

L-girl said...

Chili dogs? I think it's just more food. Like is cheese a condiment on a burger?

phil said...

How in the HELL did Dice put 7 guys on in the first 4 innings and not give up any runs?

Like that, mostly.

Tony said...

Dice just walks through raindrops. If it wasn't so goddamn irritating, it'd truly be incredible to watch.

L-girl said...

Are olives a condiment? There's Oliva and Olivo.

Allan's wondering about Mayo.

ish said...

Sugar Cain! Sugar a nickname b/c of his last name?

Yeah. Merritt Patrick Cain. He played from '32 to '38 for the Philadelphia A's, St. Louis Browns, and the White Sox.

nixon33 said...

i hate remy's ads.

A Conformer said...

Ground chili is definitely a condiment. Ask the chicken in mushroom and sour cream sauce I made today...

ish said...

Eddie Mayo, Jackie Mayo, Mayo Smith.

nixon33 said...

Benoit balls in

ish said...

And then of course for those who follow football, the Patriots have a rookie named Jerod Mayo.

phil said...

Benoit on the all sexual-aids team?
