G137: Red Sox 7, Orioles 4

Orioles - 101 001 100 - 4  9  2
Red Sox - 020 004 01x - 7 8 0
Byrd was Byrdesque (7-7-4-1-4, 84) and the Red Sox (finally) broke through against Olson in the sixth for some breathing room.

Byrd allowed three home runs -- Adam Jones in the 1st, Juan Castro in the 2nd, and Kevin Millar in the 7th -- but they were all solo shots. Beyond those, he allowed only one Baltimore baserunner past second, when he got Luke Scott on a fly out with the bases loaded to end the sixth.

Olson walked the bases loaded in the first, but escaped trouble. Boston got two runs in the 2nd on back-to-back home runs from Jason Varitek and Jeff Bailey. Then the Red Sox, trailing 3-2 in the sixth, batted around against two Orioles pitchers.

After Kevin Youkilis lined to left, Jason Bay hit a ground-rule double to right-center. Jed Lowrie's double to left scored bay to tie the game. Varitek grounded to short, but Bailey walked and Coco Crisp knocked a single to center, scoring Lowrie. Jacoby Ellsbury's infield single behind second loaded the bases. Dustin Pedroia singled down the right field line and two more runs scored. After David Ortiz was walked intentionally, Yook hit into a fielder's choice.

The Red Sox got another run on a bases-loaded walk in the eighth. The run was scored by Pedroia, who had his AL-leading 54th multi-hit game of the season.

After two strikeouts in the ninth, Jonathan Papelbon allowed singles to Millar and Jay Payton -- and a Varitek passed ball moved the runners to second and third. Pinch-hitter Oscar Salazar battled Bot through an eight-pitch at-bat, but grounded to FY to end it.

Also: Cleveland beat the White Sox 5-0, dropping Chicago into a tie with Minnesota in the Central. Both teams are 77-60, 3 GB the Red Sox in the WC. ... And in a game with no playoff implications whatsoever, New York beat Detroit 13-9.

***

Garrett Olson (6.38, 69 ERA+) / Paul Byrd (4.55, 97 ERA+)

***

Out-of-Town: Yankees/Tigers at 1 and White Sox/Spiders at 7. Rays and Twins are off.

You didn't get into another crash, did you Tim?

ish said...

Koby Clemens and a couple of his minor league teammates were arrested in Salem, VA outside of a restaurant. Clemens was arrested for disorderly conduct. One teammate is being charged with assault and battery.

nixon33 said...

haha gagne shit the bed again today vs the mets!

ish said...

haha gagne shit the bed again today vs the mets!

Did he really? I was listening to the first part of his inning on WFAN when I was sitting in the car in a Walmart parking lot. The signal wasn't good, but I could hear it. When we got going I turned it back to the Yankees game which had a much better signal. WFAN in New Hampshire during the day... bit statickey.

nixon33 said...

yeah came into the 8th inning with a 1 run lead and gave up a 2 run dong to delgado .

redsock said...

Yankees shitting the bed + Mets winning = FUN!

...

No Jays tonight = NESN on Rogers!

L-girl said...

NESN just came to the game at 0-2!!!

I guess it was the Rogers feed, not NESN?

L-girl said...

Oh my. Wish they had come in later. :<(

redsock said...

opponents hitting olson at .310

go sox go

ish said...

NESN almost missed the first pitch of the game. They came back from commercial during Byrd's wind up.

ish said...

O'B: "One thing Youk won't have a problem with, with this flu bug, is sweating it out."

ish said...

FY scored 33 runs in August... most for ANY major leaguer in ANY month since Rafael Furcal scored 35 in 2003.

ish said...

Walking the ballpark...

A Conformer said...

Let's go Jail Bait

redsock said...

thou shall not squander, jed.

A Conformer said...

Olsen having a Matsuzaka inning.

A Conformer said...

Nah, I have to correct myself. Matsuzaka gets to 0-2 and then walks them. Olson just can't throw a strike.

And, while I was writing that... Shit.

L-girl said...

Captain Dong!

ish said...

Ride, Captain, Ride on your mystery ship!

L-girl said...

redsock said...

coco sux

lower-case sucking ain't much sucking at all.

redsock said...

4 innings played in under an hour!

nixon33 said...

my friend who is at the game tonight just texted me that jeff baileys at-bat-song is led zeps 'moby dick'

AWESOME!

redsock said...

Every AB????

Joe Grav said...

grr. stuck without a TV. still 2-2? im pulling up gdgd now.

L-girl said...

couldn't he find a better lz song?

nixon33 said...

redsock said...
Every AB????


APPARENTLY, YES!

p.s. fu coco

L-girl said...

or maybe he's a drummer.

L-girl said...

nix, it's just not the same in lower case.

Joe Grav said...

moby dick is awesome

redsock said...

Gumball can play 5 seconds of MD for each AB and by the end of the season, he'll have played the entire "song".

L-girl said...

here we go... ads for stephen harper. he's running "pre campaign" ads before the spending limits kick in.

asshole.

redsock said...

5-pitch inning??? fucking sox.

redsock said...

moby dick is awesome

hell of book, i agree.

L-girl said...

awesomely boring, that is.

A Conformer said...

Do I know a different version of Moby Dick than you, RS? The one in 'II' is not a long song at all.

redsock said...

How long is the LP version?

I must be thinking of the 30-35 minute live versions.

L-girl said...

It's very long live.

L-girl said...

When I saw Zeppelin, a big thing was to come home from the show and brag about how long the drum solos were. zzzzz....

A Conformer said...

4:21.

And 30:35 would only put it at number 5 in length in my playlist... hmmm...

redsock said...

LP version is 4:25.
Just seems like 45 minutes.

Joe Grav said...

booo

L-girl said...

Hey, the Ramones can play 3 whole LPs in that time. :)

A Conformer said...

The thing about long drum solos is that they're only good if they're amazing. And even then, it has to be live.

L-girl said...

The thing about long drum solos is that they're only good if they're amazing. And even then, it has to be live.

I totally agree.

And these days, for me, that will almost never happen in rock. Maybe in jazz. But I feel like I've heard any rock solo anyone can come up with, and they're all boring.

For me. Not boring as an objective fact. They bore me.

L-girl said...

I do love Zeppelin, tho. I used to be a huge Jimmy Page fan.

nick said...

I would be totally cool with this inning ending NOW.

L-girl said...

Yes. That would be fine.

L-girl said...

Houdini

nick said...

I would like to thank all those who contributed to the end of this inning.

A Conformer said...

I do love Zeppelin, tho. I used to be a huge Jimmy Page fan.

I had a big shock moment when an 18-year kid in Cincinnati that heard I was listening to "Rock & Roll", and said "Oh, it's the song from that Cadillac ad". I said "no it's not, it's Zeppelin". And he asked "Who?"

Very sad.

nixon33 said...

I MET JIMMY PAGE, WHAT? 5 YEARS AGO? OOPS MAKE THAT 10! ;)

A Conformer said...

And also the fake "old" Zeppelin shirts they sold at Walmart. The faded 1971 tour ones, actually manufactured faded... Horrible, just horrible.

Joe Grav said...

i hate that shit

redsock said...

lowrie, trying to outsuck coco, needs to come thru here.

ish said...

I love that sound!

L-girl said...

One more of the many reasons not to shop at Wal-Mart.

I'm glad I've never seen such a thing. YUCK.

Nice avatar, Nix.

nick said...

yeeba!!

nixon33 said...

was payton really decoying? or did he just not see it?

redsock said...

payton may just suck at lf.

rally tek????

nixon33 said...

thanks l-girl. i love the shining.

A Conformer said...

You know, Jose Melendez made a good point today (as always). Why do they still call it instant replay? The instantaneousness (instantaneity? hehe) is not exactly a marvel of technology anymore.

nick said...

So, I've got tickets to wednesday's day game. Dice-K is the expected pitcher. I went to a game against the MFY earlier this year. Dice-K was the pitcher. Went to one game last year. Dice-K was the pitcher.

redsock said...

nix, do you know the VU boot known as the "guitar amp tape"?

L-girl said...

Great movie, but I'm just happy to not see you-know-who anymore.

nixon33 said...

OK COCO< YOU LITTLE BITCH. TIME TO MAKE ME STFU. YOU LITTLE, LITTLE FLU LIKE SYMPTOMS LITTLE BITCH!

L-girl said...

Nick, that's weird. But a Weds day game in early September. Sounds beautiful.

A Conformer said...

OK, Ococ, tell Nix what you think of him.

nixon33 said...

coco missed games cause he was at the salon gettin' his hair did.

nixon33 said...

SHUT THE FUCK UP, NIX!!!!!

L-girl said...

Nix 800,010
Ococ 8

nick said...

oh dear, does nix really have to STFU?

L-girl said...

I dig Ococ's braids.

redsock said...

I'M COCO CRISP, BITCH!

A Conformer said...

Nix 800,010
Ococ 8


Poor Coco. He's been at 8 for something like a week. It should be around 17 now, if we were really counting.

redsock said...

Sarfate needs some LASER surgery!

nixon33 said...

nix, do you know the VU boot known as the "guitar amp tape"?

IVE HEARD OF IT BUT DONT HAVE IT, DO YOU???????!!!!!!!

A Conformer said...

Pedroia, hitting second most of the year, in front of low-OBP leadoff men, has not had a lot of RBI opportunities.

Time to change that.

nixon33 said...

i have a bunch of velvets boots, but none of them are labeled. whats it contain?

nick said...

a Weds day game in early September. Sounds beautiful.

sure does. I'm actually not sure who I'm going with. Had a couple of friends who were top of the list, but neither can.

Emma's been asking me if there's a chance she could see the Red Sox this year. It'd be fun to take here, but... it's the 2nd day of school, she gets bored 'round the 3rd inning, and she can't split the cost with me.

redsock said...

You'll have it on Thursday!

redsock said...

oh - and stop yelling at me.

:>)

L-girl said...

Poor Coco. He's been at 8 for something like a week. It should be around 17 now, if we were really counting.

It's true! I always forget what my last score was. I'll give him more next time.

Official scorer that I am.

L-girl said...

It doesn't sound like an Emma moment. I sure wish I could go. I'd pay for both our tickets if you can pay my air fare from Buffalo.

ish said...

LASER SHOW!!

L-girl said...

FUCK YEAH!!!!

nick said...

goddammit. I am going to have his children!

A Conformer said...

FUCK YEAH

redsock said...

it's a boston show from early 69. guy set his mic pretty much inside lou's guitar amp, so that's all you hear. vocals and other instruments are barely audible.

nixon33 said...

eating pasta and broc, be back in a sec!

SoSock said...

HAHAHAHAHA!
There is NOTHING quite like pulling up GDGD just in time to see Dustin Pedroia facing fresh meat with the bases juiced. I SO knew he would get a hit.
(Almost expected a grand dong)

nick said...

I'd pay for both our tickets if you can pay my air fare from Buffalo.

It's a deal (you've got the return air fare covered, right?).

granted I still come out behind on that equation..but it'd be fun.

L-girl said...

Two tickets for two air fares (RT), seems pretty good. JetBlue, it's cheap!

tim said...

Just got here to see the cabin dong. Dammit.

L-girl said...

Stupid Rogers, we missed how long Paul Byrd waited! We heard Don say "...wait for Paul Byrd."

Another dong???? Fucking cabin. Fucking Byrd.

A Conformer said...

Kevin Millar has 20 dongs this season. WOW.

tim said...

No car accident ish.

Did someone say Airfare?

(Best site ever)

SoSock said...

Was browsing thru my fav. record store earlier today, in the vinyl rack. (No, I'm not looking to start that conversation again, it's just where I was at) Saw a nice looking copy of VU - shit, brain fart now, the one with the banana, anyway, I thought "hey ths is.....50 bucks that's what it is"
It went back.

tim said...

Fidel at the dish I see

A Conformer said...

Byrd has come pretty much as advertised. 6IP, 3-4 runs, and hope for a good game for the offense.

redsock said...

i miss pitchers rolling those balls to first base.

Jere said...

ok, I realized if I go out in the backyard (backyard!) I can get internet....sure is dark back here. Byrd gave up a dong in the time it took me to find a network?? Come on.

L-girl said...

hooray for backyards!

tim said...

hey jere! hope the house is awesome

nick said...

Way off topic:

I just saw that amy goodman (Democracy Now!) has been arrested at the RNC. I'm sure more'll come. here's a short youtube clip.

L-girl said...

vu & nico w/ banana cover.

nick said...

and congrats on the house and wirelessly-wired backyard!

L-girl said...

Oo, good for her. At least she made it there, they've been arresting people pre-emptively all over town.

Jere said...

Amy Goodman--is that the one who got Bells Palsy? (the house is indeed awesome. In my opinion.)

Jere said...

thanks, Nick. I'll also be at Fenway Wednesday, as I think you know.

L-girl said...

The one who got Bells Palsy? That I don't know. She's very well known from Democracy Now and other writing online.

nick said...

I haven't been able to keep up with all the reports of ridiculous police-state actions around the RNC. caught some of the initial reports, but have fallen far behind. between that, gustav, and the bizarro world of McCain's VP pick, labor day actions, war resisters, and on and on, I'm on extra info overload.

Jere said...

i just checked--it's her. a year ago (?) her face suddenly didn't work on one side. I assumed Bells.

L-girl said...

Oh, I'm not keeping up on any of it. I just read some wrap-ups people sent me, and posted a bit of it.

nick said...

I thought you were going to tomorrow's game. didn't realize wednesday as well.

nick said...

does nix get un-STFU?

Jere said...

i just got the shit scared out of me. sitting in the dark, i see a creature walk right under my feet and under the steps i was sitting on. if it was a skunk, it didn't spray. must've been a possum or something.

L-girl said...

Jean Chretein has Bells Palsy

Jere said...

nick, i'm going Weds, not Tues. It'll now be the tie-breaking game (all-time consecutive sellouts). But I'm also going to the record breaker on the 8th, which in a sweet coincidence is my birthday.

redsock said...

we were out at dinner the other night (last thursday) in a backyard cafe of a restaurant -- and a raccoon climbed down the tree right next to us and scampered off.

A Conformer said...

Alex Cora, defensive replacement. Oximoron (oxigenius? Nah, bad joke)

L-girl said...

oh yeah, big racoon! toronto is full of them.

Jere said...

this was a little smaller than a coon. i my self scampered away, and then went back trying to use my laptop as a flashlight, but i never saw it again.

L-girl said...

Oxigenius :)

If it's a bad joke, I'm guaranteed to laugh at it.

redsock said...

raccoon was coming down the other side of the tree like he was climbing down a ladeer and every few steps, he'd peek around at us.

L-girl said...

Probly not a squirrel, so low down. I wonder what it was.

So cool you guys have a house now.

Jere said...

now i'm hearing bats squeaking above me in the drak. this is by far my scariest game thread.

A Conformer said...

You'd be surprised how many wild animals scamper about in amusement parks at night. Skunks, raccoons, rabbits... In the park I worked in in Cincinnati there were sometimes deer walking around one of the wooden coasters at night. Crazy.

nixon33 said...

REDSOCK (YES IM YELLING!)

DO YOU HAVE "THE AUDITORIUM" BOOT, OR THE "ACETATE" WITH THE ALTERNATE TAKES OF THE VU & NICO?
im sure you do, but just wondreing if you need one or both.

Jere said...

not a squirrel. it was just casually strolling by under me. i think possum. (or opossum, whichever one lives in the northeast.)

L-girl said...

Jere sounds like the city boy out in the country. All the scary noises in the quiet.

redsock said...

probably have the nico stuff - what is the auditorium? is that a fairly newly-surfaced nyc show? i think i got that last year. i can email you a list of what i have.

redsock said...

also just d/l'd a 3-CD set called "searching for my mainline", which is assorted live shit.

there also exists a bit torrent site that is all VU and VU-related stuff.

nixon33 said...

yes i believe the AUDITORIUM is the one from last year

Jere said...

The Cincinnati amusement park--is that the ones the Bradys went to that time? I know they went to one in Ohio because dad had business there--and they had to do a big relay race to get dad's plan's back to him or something.

Lopez with an OTT

nick said...

Well you know that it's a shame and a pity
You were raised up in the city
And you never learned nothing 'bout country ways,
Ah, 'bout country ways.

L-girl said...

Ofer, where are you now, what city?

A Conformer said...

I love city bats. Gives the neighbourhood atmosphere.

Would you believe I've just heard Sweet Caroline for the first time? They played a bit of it on WRKO.

nick said...

a little over a decade ago I was watching a video with some friends on a hot summer night with the doors open for cross ventilation. Looking down, a skunk had wandered into the house and was between us and the TV.

Jere said...

"Jere sounds like the city boy out in the country. All the scary noises in the quiet."

Ha, except I'm really a rural boy who lately lives in cities. I'm cool with sitting outside at night, I mean, I love it, but we have no light back here and add the fact that I'm staring into the bright laptop screen, I'm totally blind when I look up. I have found a good spot where the connection isn't cutting out, though.

A Conformer said...

Charlotte, NC. Home of the... something

A Conformer said...

Charlotte, NC. Home of the... something

And tomorrow I'll go to Myrtle Beach, and stay there a week.

L-girl said...

I have a close friend who is terrified of bats. We were once hanging out upstate NY, and I saw how frightened she got. And she's a real tough cookie. I felt really bad for her, it was so intense, and totally involuntary.

nixon33 said...

actually its not the auditorium, its the gymnasium. stupid me.

Jere said...

i grew up with that fun thing of walking into the kitchen on a summer night to find a raccoon lazily eating out of the cats' food bowl.

L-girl said...

Looking down, a skunk had wandered into the house and was between us and the TV.

!!!

Were you around for the skunk gamethread? Our dogs got skunked a few weeks ago. Everyone was relating dog/skunk stories.

redsock said...

i heart free baserunners.

ish said...

I went for a short jog tonight (short like, a quarter mile before my lungs gave out) out with the bats flying around right above me.

Today I felt a little tickle on my leg, shook it, and I looked down and it was a wasp at my feet. Close call!

Jere said...

looks like the White Sox are gonna fall into a tie with Minny. Down 5-0 in the 9th

L-girl said...

Jere, that's cool, I would have thought you grew up more suburbs.

So now you and Phil both live in Providence. You can fill each other in on all the good vegetarian restaurants.

A Conformer said...

What the fuck is up with fuck yeah and the steals? He has more than Ococ!

nick said...

only partially around for that. I thought about relating it, but didn't.

bwahahahaha!

anyhow. A couple of folks jumped up on the couch and I had to call for instant calm. I slowly got to the other side of the skunk and we did a step, step, step, dance to the door.

Jere said...

now i'm hearing the scariest creature of all--a small child, sounds like she's speaking in tongues.

nixon33 said...

What the fuck is up with fuck yeah and the steals? He has more than Ococ!

FU, COCO!

L-girl said...

scary skunk story! no stink, I guess.

redsock said...

bay = bum

Jere said...

yeah, when I was in Nebraska and told people I lived an hour north of NYC, they thought I was basically in part of the city. But Ridgefield--man, I had cows a half a mile from my house. we were 20 minutes from any store. We were in the Styx.

nick said...

no stink. unlike that K.

L-girl said...

Jere, I'm reading your book now, will blog about it soon.

tim said...

Can't help but wonder if a shitty strike call like that effected the rest of the AB - Bay swinging for strike 3 on a borderline pitch that could've went either way.

L-girl said...

lowrie gets the bad news

DRINK

nixon33 said...

JED ZEPPELIN

ish said...

BB ribeye. Love it.

Jere said...

"Jere, I'm reading your book now, will blog about it soon."

sweet. Ever since you said one of your fears is not liking something made by a friend, I've been so nervous for you! Like, what the hell are you gonna do if you don't like it? I hate that I may be causing you pain by writing this book... (you can put that in your review, ha.) But I had one blogger actually put the book down because we spoke positively of Amalie in like the second chapter. Would not read it!

L-girl said...

I grew up in the Styx too, but it changed to Burbs when I was about 10 or 11 y/o. All the farmland was houses by the time I was in HS.

nick said...

Jere. where are you located wednesday's game? I'm in section 16.

tim said...

DRINK

I think I'll have myself a beeerrrrr

/baseketball

Jere said...

"I grew up in the Styx too, but it changed to Burbs when I was about 10 or 11 y/o. All the farmland was houses by the time I was in HS."

I understand that's going on in my hometown, too....

oh and the reason I mentioned the blogger who wouldn't read my book--if you've got any negatives, I can take it. Because at least you read it!

L-girl said...

Oh shit, Jere, that's so nice of you. I never thought of that. It's very good! I was never worried.

Wouldn't read it, because of Amalie? That's nuts.

tim said...

Scratch that. I forgot about the tea I made like 10 min before.

Tek bases loaded. Fack.

tim said...

TypicalTek.

SoSock said...

Ofer - You're actually near me. I believe this is the closest I've ever been to a fellow JoSer.
Charlotte is home of the Charlotte Knights, White Sox AAA Team, and the NFL Panthers. Also the Hornets but we don't count them. Myrtle Beach has the Pelicans, Braves A team. They're in the Carolina league with our Warthogs, and kicking ass again this year.
I'm in Winston-Salem, about an hour away from Charlotte.

Jere said...

Nick--my parents are coming up, and we ended up with three separate seats. SO we'll probably be in standing room so we can be together.

A Conformer said...

10BB today for the Sox. 2 of them intentional, one of them run scoring.

Jere said...

"Wouldn't read it, because of Amalie? That's nuts."

There's a line when we introduce her--"wunderkind of the Boston Globe." That one was my mom's, and I just remember thinking, "oh, heh, that's cool." Because I like Amalie. Now, maybe that could be considered too strong a word, I guess, but this dude hates her so much he stopped reading at that point. His girlfriend picked up the book and read it, and did the review on his blog for him. So that was nice of him to put it up anyway.

A Conformer said...

I'm in Winston-Salem, about an hour away from Charlotte.

Winston Salem? That's tobacco country, ain't it?

redsock said...

I had one blogger actually put the book down because we spoke positively of Amalie in like the second chapter. Would not read it!

You gotta tell me who that was.

L-girl said...

oh and the reason I mentioned the blogger who wouldn't read my book--if you've got any negatives, I can take it. Because at least you read it!

I don't know (yet) if I'll write a review as if I don't know you, which would include some criticisms - all books have weaknesses - or if I'll write a "this is my friend's book and it's really good and this is why" review with no crit.

I mean, either way I would say I know you, but the first one would be a more in-depth, serious review, the second one would be more like a PR plug.

Either way it would be positive with pull-quotes. :)

A Conformer said...

Winston is the #1 cigarette brand among Israeli 15-year olds.

tim said...

Avatar change. Nick, yours reminded me of the big lebowski for some reason. So...fuck it, dude.

Jere said...

"You gotta tell me who that was."

The non-reviewer of Dirty Water was the write of the blog... Dirty Watah.

SoSock said...

Yeah, we get that a lot. This whole part of the country is tobacco country, but since RJR moved HQ's we aren't the capital we once were.
I believe that would be Richmond now.

L-girl said...

wunderkind of the Boston Globe.

I read that this morning on the train on the way to the Labour Day parade.

Is there a reason she is referred to by her first name, and the male sportswriters by their last name? It doesn't seem like you.

A Conformer said...

Shomer FUCKING Shabbas!

SoSock said...

Of course Phillip Morris was nice enough to NOT name their 2 most popular brands after their home town. We are forever locked into that identity now.

A Conformer said...

Yeah, we get that a lot. This whole part of the country is tobacco country, but since RJR moved HQ's we aren't the capital we once were.

Richmond= my former two-week home town.
