G132: Red Sox 11, Yankees 3

Red Sox - 200 020 070 - 11 13  0
Yankees - 100 100 001 - 3 8 0
Dustin Pedroia's grand slam capped a seven-run eighth inning, putting the second game of the series out of reach, and putting the toe tags on the Yankees' 2008 season.

Jason Bay drove in four of Boston's five runs, with a double, a triple and a sacrifice fly.

David Ortiz reached base four times for the second game in a row (in 10 PA, four walks, three doubles, and a single):
Tue: BB, 2B, F9, BB, 2B
Wed: 2B, BB, BB, 1-3, 1B
Byrd (6-5-2-2-5, 106) was superb, allowing only a couple of two-out RBI singles and staying out of any serious trouble. After the Yankees tied the score in the bottom of the fourth, the Red Sox stormed back to retake the lead -- and drive Ponson to the showers -- and Byrd retired seven of his last eight batters.

Manny Delcarmen pitched a beautiful seventh (K, K, P5) and Mike Timlin finished up the final two innings.

***

The Rays shutout the Blue Jays 1-0, the Twins edged the Mariners 6-5, and the Orioles routed the White Sox 11-3.

AL East: Boston 3.5 GB & New York 10.5 GB

***

Paul Byrd (4.61, 95 ERA+) / Sidney Ponson (4.67, 91 ERA+)

Ponson has made 10 starts for New York: 56 IP, 68 H, 22 BB, 21 K, 5.46 ERA, 1.607 WHIP. Opposing batters have an .862 OPS (.313/.383/.479).

Back on July 27, Ponson went 4-10-7-1-1 against the Red Sox. Grab your forks and knives, Red Sox batters, it's time to feast on the plump, drunk-drivin', judge-slappin' carcass of Sidney Alton Ponson!

With J.D. Drew on the disabled list (retroactive to August 18), the Red Sox are trying to swing a deal for Atlanta outfielder Mark Kotsay. Several media outlets reported the trade was completed last night, including Rogers Sportnet in Canada, but that appears to be incorrect. WAIT: Now it is done ... maybe.

And: Twins/Mariners at 4:30 and Blue Jays/Rays and White Sox/Orioles at 7.

Nice outing, Tubbsy Wubbsy. Is it Tay Zonday time?

redsock said...

another yankee starter cannot get thru the fifth!!!!

buh-bye sidney!

efd said...

and that's all for ducks-on-the-Pon(d)son...

SoSock said...

OK, had to be NurseSock for a moment. I overheard that Youk walked 1 in. Then what?

s1c said...

another yankee starter cannot get thru the fifth!!!!

Nothing like wearing out the pen.

Was listening to the pre game show while mowing the lawn. Sherman (daily news?) was asked about Girardi vs Torre. "Uptight manager and team is playing tight".

redsock said...

bay sac fly and now to the pen!

Tony said...

That Nike commercial for USA basketball featuring Marvin Gaye's bone-chilling version of The Star Spangled Banner always gets me every time. Gaye's probably the only person, aside from (maybe)Whitney Houston, that makes me think we chose the right song as our national anthem (as opposed to, say, America the Beautiful, a far superior song in just about every way).

woody guthrie's this land is your land leaves them both in the dust(bowl).

SoSock said...

Cool - 2 more.
Bob's coming over for a while. Gotta work on him about voting for Obama. Was all for Hillary, even tho he voted for the W. Hates himself for that now. I'm afraid the old-southern-white-guy thing is holding him back, tho. Damn shame.

Joe Grav said...

Jibjab's This Land is better

Joe Grav said...

Thank God we won the basketball gold medal! Just proves that we are the bestest nation ever!!! U-S-A

How's your basketball team, Canada? THAT'S RIGHT!

redsock said...

cidp, pls

Joe Grav said...

If Sidney is ducks-on-the-pon(son), what does that make DiceK?

SoSock said...

damn
Another L-O man on.

SoSock said...

damn
Another L-O man on.

Joe Grav said...

Few things in life make me happier than CI Ging into a DP.

redsock said...

How's your basketball team, Canada? THAT'S RIGHT!

Kicked your ass in WBC baseball! Say hello to Adam Stern, motherfucker!

s1c said...

CI didn't like that strike call.

C'mon on Paulie!!!

Tony said...

redsock, totally forgot This Land Is Your Land. Probably wouldn't fly with the Communism-endorsing verse, though.

Yeah, great, Jeter once busted his face diving into the crowd. That was four years ago. Let's get over it.

Joe Grav said...

But we totally crushed Adam Stern and Stubby Clapp in the Olympic Baseball Tournament That Nobody Cares About and Is Thus Being Removed from the Olympics!

AHHH Almost a CI LIDP

s1c said...

CI strikes again!!!

Joe Grav said...

The US had Two water polo silver medals. SUCK IT!

SoSock said...

Extolling the virtues of Almighty Jeter. Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Joe Grav said...

Please strike out, A-Rod. PLEASE

redsock said...

since jeter got a boo-boo on his chin, we've won two world series championships.

what else ya got?

Joe Grav said...

MUHAHAHAHA suck it Arod!

James said...

Ah, my last day at the job that prevents me from watching most of the Red Sox games is over!

Let's celebrate with a win!

The Byrdman seems to be pitching well.

Tony said...

A-Rod put a charge into that, but came up just short. Nice inning by Byrd to strand the leadoff man.

redsock said...

byrd being lester

alright crowd, start booing again.

our deadly 7-8-9 to get it going.

s1c said...

No harm no foul there. What's that pc at? 100? 105?

Would like to see him go one more inning at least.

redsock said...

byrd at 90

Tony said...

Jesus, I just sneezed and that inning started and ended.

James said...

Edwar Ramirez looks kind of like Kyle Farnsworth.

s1c said...

Ok, was finally able to get into the four letters. Didn't see anything in Gammons about MBM tanking the pitches. He does rip MBM though, forcing the trade.

heres the archives for his july blog entries.

s1c said...

Man some Cabin HR's by the MFY's tonight.

redsock said...

man, i remember that 1976 fight like it was last month. monday night baseball. fuckin nettles.

s1c said...

L-girl still on conference call, or is she just soaking in the game?

James said...

Nice play by Jed! That would have gotten past Jeter.

L-girl said...

Finally got off the call at 9, made a Bloody Mary (using up the tomato juice from the skunk episode!) and settling in. But I didn't miss a pitch, I had the game on mute the whole time.

ish said...

Did you ever blurt out "That's my boy!" on the phone?

L-girl said...

man, i remember that 1976 fight like it was last month.

me too!

s1c said...

Bloody Mary

Celery for a stirrer?

L-girl said...

Did you ever blurt out "That's my boy!" on the phone?

I often had my own phone on mute, just in case!

There's a big organizer here, a friend of ours, who is a huge Sox fan. She grew up in Boston, her whole family is still there, she came to Canada during the Vietnam War. So at the end of the call I said, I have one more thing to add and gave Carolyn the score.

redsock said...

BYRD does the job!

efd said...

Baycatch!

Tony said...

Sit down, Gojira. Byrd has come on strong the last few innings - good work by him!

L-girl said...

Celery for a stirrer?

No celery in the house, I'm afraid. But it's got all the basic requirements. I'm beginning to feel nice and toasty.

James said...

I have to admit, I was certainly expecting a lot more scoring than this. What does the Yanks pen look like, now?

Mo, Marte, Bruney, Ramirez, Robertson... who am I missing?

s1c said...

Another solid outing (in this case a quality start) by our starters. Now we can turn it over to the pen (masterson, jeemer, the bot) or best case scenario the O explodes for like 5 or 6 runs and we can bring in the dregs (even WF).

Joe Grav said...

well done, byrd-man

efd said...

who am I missing?

Chris Britton and Jose Veras, at least.

redsock said...

lopez and mdc were up when the last inning started and bot was jogging around.

redsock said...

cano, the shrunken i-rod and noodle - might see loogy.

s1c said...

Tito had good things to say about Loogy and Bat on the radio pre game show. Was not so kind to MDC.

(l-girl - you were flamed not doing the flaming)

L-girl said...

(I know, thanks :) )

ish said...

That's like, the third or fourth straight foul up the left field line from FY.

redsock said...

the byrdman of toilet-traz.

James said...

If Milton Bradley wins the batting title, how many MVP votes will he get?

s1c said...

Well that 1/2 inning sucked.

redsock said...

TOR: 000 000 0
FKR: 000 100 0

CWS: 011 000
BAL: 120 121

s1c said...

Would like to see a nice clean inning here by MDC.

Tony said...

Do we really need another loving view of that goddamn toilet?

andy said...

I am sooooo sick and fucking tired of fucking Josh Hamilton. I will give him heroin in I ever see him.

L-girl said...

I am sooooo sick and fucking tired of fucking Josh Hamilton.

There's plenty of other players to fuck. Take a break and switch to someone else.

Tony said...

Andy, that was...how can I put this? A fucking awful thing to say.

Tony said...

Take a seat, Cano!

andy said...

And? He is not a god nor does he really care. It's all marketing.

redsock said...

WHATTA YA KNOW?

K!

Tony said...

And? He is not a god nor does he really care. It's all marketing.

?

andy said...

Now the ESPN fucks are saying that Bot looks like he is trying to get his own bobble head when he rolls his head to stretch his neck.

andy said...

Tony just understand that I hate Josh Hamilton for being Josh Hamilton.

andy said...

I do like Pudgy Poo though. He is fiery.

ish said...

This is the MDC we all want.

Tony said...

Take a seat, Pudge!

redsock said...

Roidless I-Rod K!

s1c said...

back to back K's, much better MDC, much better.

andy said...

Manny being Manny Delcarmen

SoSock said...

B2B Ks for MDC

andy said...

ManDel

efd said...

MDC OTT!

L-girl said...

thank you mdc!

redsock said...

i'd like this manny delcarmen to stop by more often.

nick said...

Cora was practically off the field before Lowrie caught that one.

andy said...

Maybe this is the home stretch/playoff pen that we knew we had.

s1c said...

I just love that car wash southwest airlines commercial. Makes me laugh every time, of course an OTT by MDC just before the commercial helps.

andy said...

I think allan said somewhere that this pen was a strength for us. Like on a round table or something. People probably thought he was an idiot. But I knew better.

L-girl said...

Cora was practically off the field before Lowrie caught that one.

I always like that. I like when the pitcher and catcher are halfway to the dugout and the batter is still rolling his eyes over the strike call.

ish said...

Boo-birds are back out.

andy said...

E-Rod.

Tony said...

Lowell woulda had that.

s1c said...

That is a good way to start the inning.

L-girl said...

Andy, you are smart.

nick said...

sweaty spin off the glove!

andy said...

The Bat never left his shoulder. He must be throwing the at-bat.

andy said...

S-M-A-R-T Smart!

Tony said...

old thurman fan at RLYW:

Pedroia being better than Robby really pisses me off.

TELL US SOMETHING WE DON'T KNOW!

andy said...

Bay's sister is a Canadian Softball player.

redsock said...

last chance for the jays - top 9, down 1-0 to FKR

L-girl said...

Johnny is hilarious out there!

ish said...

Triple for Bay! That ball had eyes on it. Anti-Yankee baseball.

nick said...

both abreau and damon misjudged it! ouch.

andy said...

Hammered! Comical Carnival of Catastrophes.

Tony said...

Abreu's "defense" gives me great, great, GREAT joy.

Jason Bay. Let's keep him!

Joe Grav said...

HAHAHAHA YOU SUCK ABREU

efd said...

I love watching Abreu going after balls next to the wall.

SoSock said...

Woo, Woo!
E-9!

L-girl said...

Bay's sister is a Canadian Softball player.

Indeed. Very celebrated here, both of them.

andy said...

Oh shit, one of the idiot on ESPN just said that ball bounced over "Matt Damon's head"

ish said...

Looks like a circus in North Las Vegas out there in right field.

Tony said...

"Fans" heading for the exit. This final season's sure going out with a bang, ain't it?

ish said...

What are they chanting? Sounds like let's go O's, but I've gotta be wrong. Just say no?

andy said...

Abreau looks like a Tranny hooker in South Las Vegas

L-girl said...

Oh shit, one of the idiot on ESPN just said that ball bounced over "Matt Damon's head"

ha ha ha ha

ish said...

Let's go home?

Joe Grav said...

Indeed. Very celebrated here, both of them.

She pitched five innings of shutout ball against the US. She gave way to the bullpen, who summarily game up 8 runs.

efd said...

their digital cameras must have all run out of storage space at the same time.

Tony said...

Looks like a circus in North Las Vegas out there in right field.

If you're talking about Circus Circus, it's a DAMN close call whether that place is uglier than the Yankees D.

L-girl said...

Let's go home?

LOL

everyone is very funny tonight

andy said...

I like when Tek holds the bat like a huge penis out in front.

SoSock said...

Ellsbury catches that ball.

Damn Right!

andy said...

Fuck you Toronto.

redsock said...

what about when tek holds his penis like a big bat?

andy said...

Fuck you Devil Rays.

andy said...

Ask Heidi, Allan.

Tony said...

Bases juiced, and HERE COME THE PRETZELS!

Er, HERE COME THE BOOS!

ish said...

Oh boy. Bases loaded with nobody out.

andy said...

If Abreau plays for the Rays they don't win.

L-girl said...

Nice catch out there for the Rays.

SoSock said...

Walk in another?

nick said...

jeez. I hve 12 minutes to grab random records and get to the station. but....

andy said...

Cora is not my hero.

s1c said...

Tito going to the clubhouse to retrieve the stake. Next run he'll bring out the hammer.

Joe Grav said...

Plateward!

andy said...

Oh hell Cora you come through you asshole.

efd said...

Cora sacs up!

Tony said...

Cora hit that on a rope...love Bay half-jogging to the plate with Damon making the catch.

Keep the foot on the gas, Crisp!

L-girl said...

Tito going to the clubhouse to retrieve the stake. Next run he'll bring out the hammer.

We already have the coffin, so we're all set.

andy said...

Nick Dead air is just air.

Joe Grav said...

nick said...

Joe Grav said...

This is so awesome.

SoSock said...

Bob says The Natives are Restless!

L-girl said...

if Coco hits a grand slam here would that count as four "FU Nix"-es?

yes!

redsock said...

Crowd all saying "wellllllllll, i got to be getting up early tomorrow, so .........."

s1c said...

Understatement of the night "what a disaster this inning has been for Veras".

I should switch over to Yes and see what Kay and them are saying.

L-girl said...

Good luck Nick! Have a good show.

andy said...

I am claiming Lowrie as my boy. is that ok?

s1c said...

ducks on the pond for FY. Time for a 98-102 moment.

L-girl said...

Jeter has never missed a post season.

For the last 2 (3?) postseasons, he has played in exactly 1 game each.

s1c said...

Why end it here? Lets rally around another time. Maybe Bot can get some work in here for the Yankees.

ish said...

Castig: "Are you awaiting the New York papers with glee?"

Dale Arnold: "Oh man. I can't wait."

ish said...

I see Jack Nicholson's sunglasses turn to red according to how much the Yankees suck.

Joe Grav said...

Please crank another one, Yook. This is one of the greatest things I've ever seen in my life.

SoSock said...

Humiliation is such a good thing!

ish said...

FY's 15 dongs are the most for a Red Sox 2B since Mark Bellhorn's 17 in 2004.

andy said...

I would like a Papi Stolen base here.

L-girl said...

I see Jack Nicholson's sunglasses turn to red according to how much the Yankees suck.

If you could market those, you'd make a fortune.

s1c said...

Redsock - remember how the MFY's were jumping up and down about MBM leaving the Sox? When you do the schadenfreude tomorrow be sure and include Bays numbers!!!

redsock said...

great shot of that blue-shirt fan, all mopey and shit.

ish said...

This game is Timlin proof. So he stands up and start warming.
