G143: Red Sox 3, Rays 0

Rays    - 000 000 000 - 0  7  0
Red Sox - 300 000 00x - 3 9 0
The Red Sox are only 0.5 GB the Rays in the East -- with 19 games to go in the regular season.

Boston scored three quick runs off Jackson in the first and Lester (7.2-6-0-3-9) and Jonathan Papelbon (1.1-1-0-0-3, 18) made it stand up.

Mark Kotsay walked on five pitches. Dustin Pedroia lined out to second, as Akinori Iwamura dove to his right and snared the ball. David Ortiz doubled off the Wall in left-center, scoring Kotsay. Kevin Youkilis lined a single to center, as Jackson had to duck to avoid being hit, scoring Flo, but was caught in a run down trying to get to second base. Jason Bay followed with a solo home run off the light tower in left-center.

Lester allowed only one Tampa Bay runner to reach second base through the first five innings. After seven innings, he had thrown 105 pitches and seemed done for the night, but he was back out on the hill for the eighth. Lester got the first two outs before allowing a single to Ben Zobrist and a ground-rule double to Carlos Pena. With the tying run at the plate -- Rocco Baldelli -- Terry Francona called on Papelbon.

Bot struck out Baldelli to end the threat. It was also the Tampa Clipper's fourth whiff of the night, earning him the Golden Shower. In the ninth, Papelbon allowed a two-out single to pinch-hitter Eric Hinske, but struck out Gabe Gross to preserve the shutout.

It was the first time Tampa Bay was shutout in consecutive games since April 28-29, 2004 -- and those whitewashes were also at Fenway Park.

Coco Crisp went 3-for-3 with a stolen base and Kotsay added two singles to his first-inning walk.

In other games, the Angels routed the Yankees 12-1. The Central-leading White Sox and Blue Jays were rained out in Chicago.

***

Edwin Jackson (4.07, 106 ERA+) / Jon Lester (3.37, 134 ERA+)

The last game the Rays played at Fenway Park ...




There has been eight years of bad blood between these two rivals.

Jackson lasted a season-low 3.1 innings against the Yankees in his last start, allowing 10 hits and six runs. In each of his four starts before that outing, he pitched at least six innings and allowed two or fewer runs. ... Lester has allowed a total of two runs in his last two starts (11.2 innings).

Tampa Bay activated third baseman Evan Longoria on Saturday. Longoria, who fractured his right wrist on August 8, says the pain is "very minimal" and the wrist is "almost 100 percent". ... J.D. Drew may return to the Red Sox lineup tonight.

All 12 meetings between the Red Sox and Rays so far this season have been won by the home team. There is a huge amount of pressure for the Rays this week. They were swept on the road by the Blue Jays -- the last two losses being a 13-inning heartbreaker and a 1-0 shutout. Now their lead is as low as it's been since July 28 -- and they are coming into Fenway, where the Red Sox are playing .716 ball (48-19, a 116-win pace).

Eric Hinske:
We have definitely got to get one win there for sure and hopefully win the series. ... You have just got to treat it as any other kind of game if you can. It's not, but you have to just treat it like it's any other game.
Marc Lancaster, Tampa Tribune:
The AL East upstarts continue to insist there is no need to panic and the next three games won't make or break their season, but they're more vulnerable now than at any time since the All-Star break and running out of margin for error.

"We know what we've got to do and they know what they've got to do," Rays starter Matt Garza said of the Red Sox. "Right now, we're up top. They're chasing us. We keep playing our ball and this thing will turn around. Right now we're in a little bit of a rut - what is that, five out of the last six? That's nothing bad." ...

The first challenge for the Rays the next three evenings will be keeping the games close. In going 0-6 at Fenway this season, the nearest the Rays have come to the Red Sox is three runs, in a 7-4 loss June 3. ... The Red Sox have averaged more than seven runs per game while hosting the Rays, outscoring Tampa Bay 45-16 in six meetings.

Tonight's starter, Edwin Jackson, has been among the primary culprits. In two losses at Fenway in May and June, Jackson allowed a combined 15 hits and 10 runs in nine innings.
Marc Topkin, St. Petersburg Times:
The Rays insist they aren't doing anything differently, the pennant race isn't affecting them and, despite being swept by the Blue Jays and losing five of their past six, they aren't feeling any extra pressure going into tonight's opener of the showdown series in Boston.

At least, that's what they're saying.

The evidence, compounded by a 1-0 loss Sunday, says otherwise. They're not getting the big hits when they need them, they're making more mistakes and, most significantly, they're not winning like they did most of the past five months. ...

As much as they talk about how, with three weeks left, there is no reason to panic — manager Joe Maddon, perhaps symbolically, had a schedule in his hands during his postgame media session — they have reason to be wary of what lies ahead.

The Sox, with their top three pitchers lined up and their lineup fortified, have a chance to take over first place with a sweep, and Fenway Park — where the Rays haven't won since last September and will be playing for the first time since the June 5 brawl — will be ferocious the next three nights.
Joe Maddon:
We really do need to win a game or two in Boston. I've said that from the very beginning. It would be nice to get a win up there, possibly two, whatever ...
Extra Bases has a few more links to Tampa media.

Tonight will be the 456th consecutive sellout crowd at Fenway Park, which will break Cleveland's major league record of 455 set from June 12, 1995 to April 2, 2001. The Red Sox's streak began on May 15, 2003.

On Thursday morning, I want the AL East standings to look like this:


Of lesser importance:
Blue Jays/White Sox at 8
Yankees/Angels at 10
East
Rays 85 56 --- Magic #
Red Sox 84 58 1.5 20
Blue Jays 76 66 9.5 12
Yankees 76 67 10.0 11
Orioles 63 78 22.0 E

Wild Card
Red Sox 84 58 --- Magic #
Twins 78 65 6.5 14
Blue Jays 76 66 8.0 13
Yankees 76 67 8.5 12

they should have acquired trot from the mets for this series' fights alone.

LJCohen said...

We were at that game, though we'll be watching this one from home. At this point in the season, I start having to watch from the hallway, pacing and chewing my fingernails. I can't sit in front of the TV, but I can't bear not knowing what's happening!

I drive my kids absolutely crazy.

:)

nixon33 said...

edwin jackson has been VERY human vs. us this year...
he looked AWFUL vs. that shitty yankee lineup.
and we all know that if the yanks can hit this guy the sox most DEFINITELY can

JCal76 said...

Too bad that sucker-punching d-bag Gomes isn't even good enough to make the expanded roster. He needs to get a Paps 99mph pitch right into his piece of shit cheeseburger filled coronary artery.
FUCK, I HATE HIM!

FenFan said...

Honestly, it may be better not to get into these skirmishes. The last thing we need, especially after so many players have returned from the DL, is for a key guy to get hurt throwing punches or getting in a shoving match. Let the bats do the talking.

(Not that I wouldn't mind watching Lester drill Gomes in the ear... heh!)

redsock said...

Somewhere, Trot is giving Hal McRae the finger and telling him to eat a bowl of dicks.

redsock said...

Tito on Kotsay v Lyndon at leadoff tonight.

Joe Grav said...

Why did I tell myself signing up for a once-a-week three hour class on Monday nights was a good idea?

Thankfully he's letting us out early today since it's only the first week so I'll be out and able to watch by 8

redsock said...

MLB's 250,000th dong will be hit tonight: Countdown!

redsock said...

Dong #250,000 may be Player X tonight, but when other games and dongs come to light in the future, the title will shift to someone else.

Like which Rose hit beat Cobb's hit record; when Cobb's career totals were revised/corrected, it turned out Rose broke the mark of a different day against a different pitcher.

tim said...

WOOHOO!!!!!

Jays game rained out! So i get NESN 52" HD instead of slingbox on the computer!

redsock said...

Ooooh nice. Maybe they'll show NESN -- though I hope EI does also.

redsock said...

Except the Jays was at 8 and not 7. Hmmmm

tim said...

Yeah, I checked on Sportsnet.ca before posting that.

redsock said...

Sox win and it's

0.5 GB East
7.0 GA WC

redsock said...

NESN on 470!

redsock said...

STRIKE 1!!

Amy said...

I have to teach tonight. Like Joe G, I am regretting having a Monday night class (not that I had any choice), and I cannot even end it early since it is the third, not the first, week of classes.

I hope to get back to see a few innings. GO SOX!

redsock said...

NICE BUNT!!!!

nixon33 said...

BJ UPTON IS ANTHER GUY YOU CAN PUT ON MY "I FUCKING HATE YOU YOU LITTLE CUNT" LIST

phil said...

Ellsbury tight quad.

L-girl said...

i like him hitting well again

I also.

Grant Salzano said...

Let's put them away right here in the first.

L-girl said...

I might as well make this public, just in case I'm right. With no outs, I said to A, after the Red Sox score 4 runs this inning, could you get me a glass of red wine?

Ok, that's one.

redsock said...

ONE RUN, THAT'S IT. THAT'S ALL WE NEED.

L-girl said...

That's two!

redsock said...

DUCK!!!!!!!!

s1c said...

I will trade the out for the run!!!

L-girl said...

ONE RUN, THAT'S IT. THAT'S ALL WE NEED.

A little insurance never hurts.

s1c said...

Dong!!!

Bay Dong!!!

3-0!!!

redsock said...

DOUNG!

L-girl said...

That's three!

CANUCK DOUNG!!!!

Amy said...

I am "watching" view CBSSports...did Youk make a running error?

Grant Salzano said...

Holy SHIT, that was a blast =-O Number 249,997!

L-girl said...

One more run, I get my wine!

nixon33 said...

AWESOME!
MANNY WHO? (just fucking kidding)

Amy said...

Whoa, Laura, one more and you get wine!

redsock said...

Nice to see Upton stop jogging!!!

Jackson aint got shit tonight. His 2 outs - a line drive and a rundown.

Amy said...

OK, I have to go teach. :(

Grant Salzano said...

Jesus, I can't remember the last time someone hit that rightmost Monster light tower =-O

L-girl said...

Oh well, I'll take 3 and I'm getting wine anyway, so there!!

L-girl said...

Bye Amy!

phil said...

I might as well make this public, just in case I'm right.

Youk owes you a beer.

A Conformer said...

Bay with 249997

ish said...

I approve of this score!

ish said...

I think Don called Joe Migraine Jim.

redsock said...

Baldelli fouls one off and nearly hits Migraine in the Rays TV booth

ish said...

It's weird not scoreboard watching!

nixon33 said...

JOE MADDEN LOOKING LIKE MARTIN REV!

FUCKING COOL AS SHIT!

ish said...

Lester's dealing...

redsock said...

Don says that Longoria, in addition to being on the DL, had a wrist problem.

Ummmmm, he was on the DL with a fractured wrist.

Tony said...

Evening, everyone - back in Vegas from a week on the East Coast (NYC and VA - sadly, I didn't get a chance to see the Yankees at the Toilet one last time and laugh at their grave, so to speak). I saw that the Sox were 5-1 in that week I was away...maybe that should tell me something, I dunno. :p

Stephanie said...

this is tim.

lmfao to migraine getting smoked in the head! (yeah i know its delayed...steph using the computer)

phil said...

Ummmmm, he was on the DL with a fractured wrist.

That too.

L-girl said...

Madden is pretty cool. One of the better men in baseball, IMO.

phil said...

Tek chases high heat. Unpossible.

Grant Salzano said...

Magglio Ordonez with dong #249,998

nixon33 said...

l-girl, i agree about madden (according to allan thats ass kissing but i'll take my chances)


FU NIX!

s1c said...

!!!ocoC is simply on fire.

ish said...

FU Nix!

phil said...

DO: "Coco Crisp who's been on fire".

redsock said...

coco hitting like fy jr.

Tony said...

Maybe it's good we kept Crisp after all. :D

L-girl said...

(according to allan thats ass kissing but i'll take my chances)

Ha ha, he's under some kind of delusion that everyone is kissing his ass, poor guy. ;)

ish said...

Coco's just filling in for Drew, I guess.

ish said...

Maybe whenever Pedroia gets a hit we can say FU Allan. Kinda even the ass-kicking vibes out a little it.

Grant Salzano said...

Gary Sheffield with dong #249,999...

L-girl said...

Aw, fuck no!

L-girl said...

Maybe whenever Pedroia gets a hit we can say FU Allan. Kinda even the ass-kicking vibes out a little it.

I'm in!

redsock said...

Maybe whenever Pedroia gets a hit we can say FU Allan.

I never hated on FY, though.

ish said...

O'Brien: "A fan in the front row bobbled that foul ball, and he shouldn't deserve it back. The Rays ballboy gave it to someone else."

Castig: "Maybe he takes fielding lessons from Joe Magrane..."

ish said...

I never hated on FY, though.

So?

A Conformer said...

Fuck yeah should get 250000

Grant Salzano said...

I've been a FY fan since the very beginning. And I have witnesses to prove it 8-).

Also Youk. But Pedroia's been my favorite player since he's gotten here.

ish said...

Was that scored as a base hit - the ball FY botched?

redsock said...

so there has to be some logic involved. at least a little.

L-girl said...

So?

I agree.

Fuck yeah should get 250000

I agree.

L-girl said...

FU logic!

s1c said...

Another sweet DP!!!

Grant Salzano said...

If we get a double play here, FY has a VERY good chance of getting #250,000

phil said...

Redsock said: "If DP hits #2 next year, I'll be royally pissed, because either Tito has truly gone insane or the team is so banged up, it was the only choice and we're likely out of the running anyway."

December 6, 2006.

L-girl said...

Ish, yes, base hit.

Grant Salzano said...

WOW, I'm good! lol

Tony said...

Yay for defense!

redsock said...

at least have it be someone i don't like.

have timlin tell me i'm a traitor or something if he ever records another out.

phil said...

Allan never gave Pedroia a chance. So sad.

andy said...

I am pleased so far with our ALCS game 1 performance.

L-girl said...

From that quote, wouldn't "next year" be 2007?

Grant Salzano said...

HURRY UP AND WARM UP SO FY HAS A CHANCE AT .25M!

redsock said...

Redsock said: "If DP hits #2 next year, I'll be royally pissed, because either Tito has truly gone insane or the team is so banged up, it was the only choice and we're likely out of the running anyway."

December 6, 2006


Exactly. I believe I wanted him at cleanup.

phil said...

Yeah, it proves Allan was hating Pedroia before he even got a chance to slump in 2007. Such palpable hate.

L-girl said...

I am pleased so far with our ALCS game 1 performance.

I agree.

Grant Salzano said...

Awww...

Well, I'd be happy if it was a Sox player regardless of who it is...

phil said...

Of course it would be nice if Pedroia would resume hitting.

L-girl said...

Yeah, it proves Allan was hating Pedroia before he even got a chance to slump in 2007. Such palpable hate.

Ok then, we'll FU RS every time PeeWee gets a hit!

Grant Salzano said...

F the shift.

redsock said...

phil, if you have some sort of data base of my comments over the years, i could really use a copy for reference purposes!

andy said...

The other night when after we finished Dustin told me how he was a little bit nervous about the MVP thing. He wants to do good to show people he isn't a fluke. I told him, as I stroked his hair, not to worry because he will always be my favorite bat.

Grant Salzano said...

Not the prettiest offensive inning.

Tony said...

1-2-3 innings makes baby Jesus cry.

ish said...

Why did you want FY batting cleanup?

andy said...

In 2006 who would have thought we would be without Manny, with Bay and Kotsay, and our best pitcher would be Lester?

Tony said...

In 2006 who would have thought we would be without Manny, with Bay and Kotsay, and our best pitcher would be Lester?

Or that Josh Beckett, who had looked so horribly inconsistent that season, would've been a Cy Young contender and a Mathewson-like beast in the postseason?

andy said...

I want DP to hit the game winning grand slam in the WS and Papi to jump into his arms. I want to see him get saddled.

andy said...

The Beckett thing I expected after his 2003 performance.

A Conformer said...

In 2006 who would have thought we would be without Manny, with Bay and Kotsay, and our best pitcher would be Lester?

The baseball gods?

andy said...

Perennial playoffs is a good feeling.

Tony said...

The Beckett thing I expected after his 2003 performance.

You're a better man than me...baseball, and sports in general, has rarely taught me to expect greatness on a consistent basis. Only basketball really allows for that, IMO.

Just for the record - I'm sure we all want FY to be MVP this season, but is there a legitimate argument (either saber or traditional) that he deserves it? I'd love to hear it, just so I can pull it out if anybody tries to tell me I'm wrong when I say FY should win in a walk. ;)

ish said...

O'Brien listing off an MVP fan poll on ESPN.com... FY was leading with Hamilton in second - he went down the list and then said, "I think John McCain is sixth, although I'm not sure how that happened."

I went through my brain, trying to figure out if there is a baseball player named John McCain. Then of course, it hit me. He was joking.

Tony said...

Lester K! He's cruising right now.

efd said...

hi all... joining the thread late, but I've caught most of the game so far. And I like it!

ish said...

This is fun to watch!

nick said...

Martin Rev as in Suicide, Martin Rev?

A Conformer said...

Lester at 50 pitches after 4. And 250K is still unclaimed.

efd said...

Martin Rev as in Suicide, Martin Rev?

Nick, I was thinking the same thing!

efd said...

I guess there's a passing resemblance

Ouch, that DP hurt.

nick said...

The other night when after we finished Dustin told me how he was a little bit nervous about the MVP thing. He wants to do good to show people he isn't a fluke. I told him, as I stroked his hair, not to worry because he will always be my favorite bat.

I love sensitive andy. he's so sweet.

andy said...

If the Sox win the series this year i am getting a sox logo tatoo.

andy said...

Shhh my love pickle is batting.

efd said...

Sheffield just got #250k.

Tony said...

I have the Sox logo on my Bank of America debit card and checks. It's pretty awesome.

Although, when I was in NYC, I bought the '71 Angels cap (because I'm a hat nerd) and the clerk gave me a weird look. Not without reason, to be honest.

nick said...

Rev kinda looks like a zombie Lou Reed in that one.

On your cock?

That way you can really stick it to the guys from the other teams who swing by your place when they're in town.

Tony said...

The 1971 Angels cap - IMO, the best cap logo in MLB history.

Tony said...

Geez, did the '71 Angels drive everybody away?

efd said...

Geez, did the '71 Angels drive everybody away?

If anything I'd attribute it to the comment before that!

A Conformer said...

BR has this sentence below their 250000 dong tracker:
Please note that it is raining heavily in Detroit which could cause the game to be called and the HR's not become official.

That would be pretty funny.

nick said...

!!! Varitek nearly makes a bunt single !!!

efd said...

Jeez, Varitek almost got on with that bunt!

ish said...

Funix at it again!

Tony said...

If anything I'd attribute it to the comment before that!

:(

Can't help it - I love me some Sox, but I mean, that cap is totally sweet.

nick said...

FUNIX Burnin' Up!!!

ish said...

Not so good baserunning, Kotsay.

A Conformer said...

Tony, I'm pretty sure he meant the cock comment.

Tony said...

Yeesh...two outs made on baserunning mistakes. Not good, guys.

s1c said...

Time for FY to break his slump

ish said...

Strained left quad for Upton.

nick said...

I have trouble believing I accomplished what andy could not. What about that thread the other night that that was all caps and curses? pendulum swing, perhaps.

Tony said...

Tony, I'm pretty sure he meant the cock comment.

Strange...I thought it was funny. :D

phil said...

if you have some sort of data base of my comments over the years, i could really use a copy for reference purposes!

You underestimate my googlefu.

efd said...

a-con is correct, and in any case I meant it lightheartedly.

Kotsay's out looked more like poor baserunning to me than Youk's, but maybe that's not the case...?

Tony said...

Geez, I hope Pedey's not pressing with all the MVP talk.

A Conformer said...

Strange...I thought it was funny. :D

I agree. I'm not really afraid of cocks, myself. Real or literary ones. I just try not to write comments in the middle of innings, since the mlbtv window and the JoS window cancel each other out.

L-girl said...

We're back!

Our internet went out, as you may have noticed. Nice "thank you" thingy.

A Conformer said...

Who was that guy in the owner's booth?

efd said...

Who was that guy in the owner's booth?

that was no guy, that was Ken Burns!

nick said...

I know nothing about them, but I love that there's a band called The Ken Burns Effect.

ish said...

Ken Burns working on a 10th inning for the Baseball series.

s1c said...

I am not liking how this 1/2 inning is progressing. Outs please!!!

L-girl said...

That way you can really stick it to the guys from the other teams who swing by your place when they're in town.

I nominate this for Comment of the Week!

A Conformer said...

My god, funix has no arm.

nick said...

appreciate it, but it seems awkwardly wordy. surely someone else could make it snappy.

Tony said...

Those last two innings reminded me of the Lester I knew and barely tolerated in 06 and 07.

A Conformer said...

Kind of a blunt inning for Lester, but he gets out of it.

There'll probably be someone warming in the bullpen next inning.

ish said...

NESN cameras showed Heidi when she wasn't even called on. She looked embarrassed!

nick said...

Aybar playing in the shit!
Random Heidi shot.

efd said...

Bonus Heidi screentime!

ish said...

She looks like she's always chewing a piece of gum.

L-girl said...

Appreciate it, but it seems awkwardly wordy. surely someone else could make it snappy.

I'm an editor, I'll take care of it.

* * * *

I see no one said Where are Redsock and L-girl?? Thanks a lot guys!

efd said...

I see no one said Where are Redsock and L-girl?? Thanks a lot guys!

The funny thing is, everyone disappeared at once!

nick said...

thanks, oh wordwise one.

I'm sure we were all thinking that very sincerely. I assumed that you guys had lost a connection and that all those comments would come gushing out. then I saw a trickle of one or two and figured we'd all just gone lame.

ish said...

I see no one said Where are Redsock and L-girl??

Probably get some interesting answers, after that cock tattoo comment.

s1c said...

Where are Redsock and L-girl??

Who?

phil said...

Jackson needs a group hug after giving up a walk?

ish said...

The funny thing is, everyone disappeared at once!

It's why game threads don't work quite as well when L-Sock aren't around.

nick said...

Is today Jere's birthday?

ish said...

Youk and Bay aren't exactly Ellsbury and Pedroia with a man at first.

phil said...

Bleh.

Baserunning isn't this team's forte, tonight.

nick said...

godfuck!

Tony said...

Blech, my least favorite DP.

phil said...

Is today Jere's birthday?

Yes.

phil said...

And Jere's at the game for it.

tim said...

Happy Birthday Jere!

(Random hourly comment now that I have access to the sex box....er, computer)

nick said...

y'know, some of my comments may come back to haunt me when I get bizarrely selected as someone's VP candidate.

phil said...

when I get bizarrely selected as someone's VP candidate.

Nobody's that drunk.

ish said...

Jere certainly gets to a lot of games, doesn't he?

Brand new NESN ticker.

Tony said...

I'm guessing this is Lester's last frame, unless he gets two more outs in about 3 more pitches.

A Conformer said...

y'know, some of my comments may come back to haunt me when I get bizarrely selected as someone's VP candidate.

You can always come to the convention, get up on stage, and respectfully decline.

ish said...

Don just called Magrane Jack! So, he calls him Jim the first time a ball goes into his booth, and now Jack.

nick said...

Nobody's that drunk.

lol. I've seen some pretty shitfaced folks in my day. But if they were that drunk they probably wouldn't be able to dial correctly.

ish said...

You can always come to the convention, get up on stage, and respectfully decline.

Good way to get the entire media to wet themselves.

ish said...

Bat and Jeemer warming

tim said...

250,003 have been hit. If DET game gets shitcanned it will be Kendall (MIL) off Volquez.

I wanted to see a pitcher get it :(

Masterson and Oki warming.

nick said...

was that the bot humping the mound in the pen?

phil said...

KKKKKKKK

nick said...

Youk: Drunken Master Fielding.

phil said...

106. I assume he's done.

Tony said...

Another fine outing from Lester. I'm giving him a virtual round of applause right now.

(I'd typed "virtual hand" first, but I don't want to leave any comments I might regret if I'm ever named as somebody's VP.)
