G150: Red Sox 13, Rays 5

Red Sox - 400 711 000 - 13 11  0
Rays - 001 002 200 - 5 7 0
Six home runs for the Red Sox -- including three in the fourth inning -- help Boston rout Kazmir (3-6-9-4-2, 72) in one of the worst starts of his career.

It also moved the Red Sox into a virtual tie for first place in the AL East.
            W   L   PCT    GB
Rays 88 60 .595 ---
Red Sox 89 61 .593 ---
Blue Jays 80 70 .533 9.0
Yankees 80 70 .533 9.0
Orioles 66 82 .446 22.0
Kazmir was in trouble as soon as he took the mound. He walked Coco Crisp on four pitches. He walked Dustin Pedroia on four pitches. David Ortiz crushed a 1-1 pitch for a three-run homer. After Kevin Youkilis lined to left, Mike Lowell (who told the media before the game he has been playing with a partially torn labrum in his right hip) bashed a dong to left.

Red Dot got through the next two frames, but he was pulled after failing to retiring any of the first five batters in the fourth. Jason Bay hit a first-pitch home run to center (that got stuck in one of the catwalks and never came down), Jed Lowrie walked, Jason Varitek homered (giving him the most career HRs hit by a Red Sox catcher, with 158), Jacoby Ellsbury singled, and Crisp doubled.

At this point, Mitch Talbot came out of the pen for his major league debut. Pedroia singled in a run, Ortiz's fielder's choice scored another, and Youkilis hit a tater to deep left. 11-1 in the middle of the fourth! ... Ellsbury homered in the fifth and back-to-back doubles from Ortiz and Youkilis finished the Red Sox scoring.

Again, the entire starting lineup chipped in:
Crisp:    2B, 3 BB, 2 RS
Pedroia: 1B, 2 BB, RBI, RS
Ortiz: HR, 2B, 4 RBI, 3 RS
Youkilis: HR, 2B, 3 RBI, RS
Lowell: HR, RBI, RS
Bay: HR, RBI, RS
Lowrie: 3 BB, RS
Varitek: HR, RS, 2 RBI
Ellsbury: HR, 1B, RBI, 2 RS
Dice left after five innings (5-3-1-2-7, 101). Chris Smith allowed four runs in his two innings (two-run home runs from Justin Ruggiano and Dan Johnson) and Mike Timlin and David Pauley each tossed a scoreless frame.

The Yankees beat the White Sox 4-2 and Cleveland beat the Twins 3-1.

Boston is now tied for 1st place in the East (actually .002 behind the Rays) and 7 GA in the wild card. The Red Sox have 12 games remaining in the regular season.

***

Daisuke Matsuzaka (2.97, 153 ERA+) / Scott Kazmir (2.99, 145 ERA+)

1 GB with 13 left to play. The existence of the wild card saps a lot of the excitement from this series -- imagine if it was win the division or go home -- but it should still be very tense and entertaining.

Boston has to win at least two of these three games -- in a park where they are 0-6 this year -- to be in a position to win the division. A 2-1 record would leave the Red Sox tied for first place with 10 games left. Going 1-2 would leave them 2 GB -- not a great position, considering the Rays' last eight games are against the lowly Orioles and Tigers. And a Tampa Bay sweep would all but eliminate the Red Sox from the East race, 4 GB with 10 to go.

Last Tuesday, Kazmir (6-5-2-3-4, 108) faced Dice (5-8-3-4-5, 102) at Fenway. Tampa won the game 5-4.

Just a correction: If the sox take 2 out of 3, they'll be tied for first place, not 1 GA. And then, as they say in futbol, it will be a 0-0 game all over again.

Jere said...

and if we win 2 of 3, we're still 1 out in the loss--so yeah, kinda need to take at least 2.

We're also 4 back of best record with 13 left. That'll be tough.

Amy said...

I will be teaching tonight with one part of my brain wondering what the baseball score is. How tacky would it be to put the computer on in the front of the classroom with GDGD or CBSSports (my preferred site) tuned to the game so I can check now and then?

WIN! I want the East!

redsock said...

Corrected! You know, I went over what the scenarios would be two or three times in my head before posting. And still ...

redsock said...

Not tacky -- the students might appreciate an update as well.

ish said...

Oh snap!

The Brewers fired manager Ned Yost.

Who's there new interim manager now?

DALE SVEUM. Interim Manager of the Milwaukee Brewers.

redsock said...

Just don't give them any updates like:

"Lyndon and Fuck Yeah scored on a sweaty dong! That should be enough for Old Yeller."

redsock said...

Will he be waving runners in from the top step of the dugout?

ish said...

Not sure. But every hitter will have the green light on 3-0.

Why the bold Papi, Nix?

nixon33 said...

cause Kazmir is pitching

papa sime said...

c`mon and let the good times roll.

a big plus for sox is 2 less games to be played in this final stretch.

Patrick said...

I love the tension!!! These games are huge.

Screw two out of three, I want to sweep these guys under the door mat.

Let's settle this shit.

Zenslinger said...

I will be teaching tonight with one part of my brain wondering what the baseball score is.

I'll be in the Writing Lab, which means I can at least check the score.

I've realized recently (can't remember if I mentioned it here) that I will have to teach during Game 7 of the World Series. I will not be able to get around it.

Let's just hope it doesn't come to that.

Amy said...

Zen, I have avoided looking ahead to see how many post-season games are scheduled when I am teaching on Monday and Wednesday nights. Luckily, Wednesday nights I am generally home by 8:30, whereas Mondays I don't get home til closer to 9:45.

Allan, I think I may just do that (and yes, remember NOT to call Pedroia Fuck Yeah or talk about dongs....)

Class doesn't start til 7:30 so I may at least get in the top of the first.

redsock said...

Alright, we got EI and Sportsnet (Jays are off). One of these should have a non-Migraine broadcast.

redsock said...

FUCK

paper says sox are on sportsnet -- then RIGHT FUCKIN AFTER after a commercial for red sox/rays, what do i see but the MOTHERFUCKING YES LOGO?????????????????????

and EI has FSN.

I AM NOT PLEASED. NOT FUCKING PLEASED AT FUCKING ALL

redsock said...

plus L is doing a phone interview so i can't call and bitch to rogers

phil said...

Just don't get all DFW on us.

Tony said...

Evening, everybody. Hope everybody had a good weekend - I'm still bumming a little over the news of DFW's untimely passing. I'd actually never read the Kenyon commencement address he'd given, and it's really a fantastic speech.

Flipped through Consider the Lobster again the other day, and I was really saddened to read his essay on the 2000 John McCain campaign. It's so bitterly ironic after the fact, especially now that McCain has become the Manchurian Candidate.

Woti-woti said...

Redsock: Don't you get the Rogers regional sports channels? NESN is on Rogers East. Here, we get them as soon as we get the digital box.

redsock said...

mccain was a full-of-shit tool in 2000, not sure why dfw fell for his steady stream of bullshit

Tony said...

mccain was a full-of-shit tool in 2000, not sure why dfw fell for his steady stream of bullshit

Real simple, IMO - the guy he was running against. That McCain would accept the GOP pushing him for President after the royal fucking-over they gave him in 2000 really speaks volumes about that douchenozzle.

Tony said...

Am I right in seeing that Kazmir has thrown 7 straight balls???

redsock said...

BBBBBBBB

:>)

nixon33 said...

YEAH FUCK YOU KAZ!
COME ON (OLD) BIG PAPI!

Jere said...

His pitch count estimate over 9 IP is...infinity.

Jere said...

or over 1 IP for that matter.

Ball 9...

redsock said...

woti - is that 22?

Jere said...

Papi, you don't swing after NINE straight balls.

Tony said...

Man, Kazmir must be getting squeezed or something.

Zenslinger said...

9 straight balls (all FB) until Ortiz fouls off the changeup (according to GDGD).

phil said...

Suck it, Kazmir.

nixon33 said...

(OLD) BIG PAPI!

YEAH FUCK YOU KAZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

LARGE FATHER DONG

Jere said...

3-0 US!!!!! I was thinkin'---gotta take the crowd out early. Looks like it's only Sox fans anyway, but, nice job, Papi!

Tony said...

TIZZLE FO SHIZZLE!!!!

The GHAH strikes again!

redsock said...

THE BEATDOWN HAS BEGUN!!!!!

s1c said...

A Papi Dong and all is right in the world!!!

Zenslinger said...

YES!!!!

Fatherly Dong Action!

Tony said...

Nothing like 3 runs on 1 hit, eh? :D

Jere said...

tony--there were two that were borderline pitches. But he's just not finding the zone. Hinske in left field, that's funny to me for some reason. Nice catch, though.

ish said...

DR. DONG DELIVERS!

Hey everyone!

Jere said...

Lowell DONG!!!!!

phil said...

Keep sucking, Kazmir.

s1c said...

Mikey, I like Mikey!!!

Dong!!!

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU KAZ!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

DOCTAH

fucking a!!!!!!!!!

nick said...

holy shit. Kazmir is toast right now.

ish said...

I like me seeing this crooked number!

Tony said...

LOWELL!!!!!!

Just what the doctor ordered.

Zenslinger said...

douchenozzle

Now this one I like, especially in comparison to the recent portmanteaux like "fucktard" and "asshat".

Tony said...

I like hearing that, jere. At least it's not a tight zone, so Dice won't be even more screwed.

Tony said...

Now this one I like, especially in comparison to the recent portmanteaux like "fucktard" and "asshat".

"Douchenozzle" compliments of one Patton Oswalt.

Amy said...

OK, I can go to class with a little breathing room. TELL DICE K NO SCREWING AROUND. Stop trying to prove you can always get out of innings with the bases loaded, you fool!

Tony said...

GDGD put up video of Papi's dinger - that sucker got out in a hurry.

nixon33 said...

OK NO WALKS, OK DICE?

nick said...

I hope kazmir doesn't level out too much, but a 4 run bed is sweet.

Tony said...

A little cushion for the pushin' for Dice - don't fuck it up, for God's sake. Throw strikes!*

*apropos of nothing, I said "throw strikes!" in my head in the same voice as the MSU radio guy who raved out 2 years ago after their crushing loss to ND - "make plays!!!!" A watershed moment in sports radio history.

ish said...

So we were just visited by a police officer who told us the house next door was broken into earlier today. Fantastic.

redsock said...

OMG - Staats actually whining a little bit about the gift call the Sox got on Overbay in the 9th yesterday. WHAT A FUCKING CURLY-HAIRED BABY!

redsock said...

RIGHT OVER THE PLATE -- AND IT'S A BALL FROM THIS TARD.

Tony said...

Crap. That 5th pitch sure looked like a strike.

16 pitches for Dice already.

Tony said...

Dear Jesus, Dice, throw a strike.

Grant Salzano said...

Walk #1

Tony said...

Christ al-fucking-mighty.

Grant Salzano said...

Oy.

ish said...

Oi. Use the force, Dice.

ish said...

YOOOOUK!

ish said...

A good snare lunging to his right saves at least one run!

L-girl said...

Hey! I think my inevitable-mojo is back. I went to do this interview (stupid west coast people, interrupting my game), and I said, when I come back downstairs, I want it to be 4-0 Red Sox.

And I did and it was!

I'm feeling good about this again.

Grant Salzano said...

Boy, that was nice.

redsock said...

thank god they did not score. fucking ump ought be fired for that one call alone. fucking shitstain motherfucker.

amazing to hear the rays guys go on about what big breaks they got in that innings. they usually cry so much -- they were seriously big breaks then for them to admit they got a gift or 3.

A Conformer said...

YOOOOOOK!

Umpire may have cost Daisuke an inning pitched at the other end of this game- about 15 pitches thrown after the obvious 3rd out strikeout.

L-girl said...

And I see a Patton Oswalt mention in the thread, nice.

I'm not really threading tonight, I just wanted to share my re-found optimism.

kkh said...

phew. Man, Dice-K games are sooo not good for my blood pressure.

s1c said...

What should have been a 16 pitch OTT turns into a 28 pitch inning but put that 0 on the board boys!!!

redsock said...

dice k'd pena on pitch 14 - ends up throwing 27.

Grant Salzano said...

Ow...

Grant Salzano said...

What?!?

ish said...

Warnings have been issued!

Weirdos.

redsock said...

MEALS IS A IDIOT.

JESUS

phil said...

It's hilarious that Daisuke took five more pitches to give up four fewer runs that inning.

Danie said...

Can they Un-warning?

nixon33 said...

i didnt realize eunuchs were umpiring this series.

Grant Salzano said...

What what what?!

That was a strike?

A Conformer said...

amazing to hear the rays guys go on about what big breaks they got in that innings. they usually cry so much -- they were seriously big breaks then for them to admit they got a gift or 3.

It's really easy: you complain about the other side getting breaks, but celebrate your own and act as if you deserve them. It's all about crooked perception.

Warnings? FUCK THE HECK? Horrible decision.

nick said...

christ. 3 conficting edits in a row.

the only warning they should've issued is to the Rays that Kazmir is clearly doling out utter suckage tonight.

redsock said...

staats mentioning previous arrogant behavior about his blown calls.

these guys are totally annoyed with these umps. with good reason.

efd said...

F-EUNUCHS!*

Hi everyone... nice to come home from work and see a 4-0 lead! (And to get the update from these comments.)

*(say it out loud)

andy said...

Whose dong was bigger lowell's or ortiz'?

andy said...

Fuck you papsmear

efd said...

Kazmir not exactly looking playoff-ready so far...

phil said...

Fuck you papsmear

Asshole can't hit home runs every at bat. What good is he?

nixon33 said...

F-EUNUCHS!*

good one!

phil said...

MFY 2 - CWS 0.

A Conformer said...

When warnings have been issued, is any HBP an immediate ejection? Or it there room for judgement on intent?

andy said...

Can a manager warn the umpire? That would be funny. "no sir, I warn YOU!"

redsock said...

don't know if ejection is absolute, but it would include the manager as well.

nick said...

If both managers are in agreement, then they can eject the ump of their choosing.

nick said...

I should also clarify that I am full of shit.

efd said...

When warnings have been issued, is any HBP an immediate ejection? Or it there room for judgement on intent?

It doesn't look like there's any wiggle room:

another such pitch will result in the immediate expulsion of that pitcher (or a replacement) and the manager

Tony said...

Nothing like 10 minutes babysitting very young children to wear you out.

Tony said...

We're getting another 5-inning bullpen destroyer job out of Dice tonight, aren't we? Blech.

phil said...

CWS 2 - MFY 2.

Tony said...

It's nice to not have to root (with nose held) for the Yankees, isn't it? Now we can all get back to the pleasure of hoping they lose in ugly, brutal fashion.

redsock said...

lotta yooooooks coming thru on fsn!

A Conformer said...

There's an article on MLB.com titled 'Red Sox rooting for Sveum to succeed'. It should be subtitled 'Red Sox' fans nearly die from laughter'.

nick said...

off to put emma to bed.

lowell's hip = papi's knee.

efd said...

"elevates" -- I'll say, Don!

Tony said...

Dale Sveum took years off my life. I am convinced of this.

A Conformer said...

It's nice to not have to root (with nose held) for the Yankees, isn't it? Now we can all get back to the pleasure of hoping they lose in ugly, brutal fashion.

Well, there is the whole 16th place/protected draft pick issue. But I say fuck it- they're not good drafters anyway. Let them lose every single game left this season. Especially those in The Outhouse That Ruth Built.

Jere said...

My dad called Sveum "Sputum" since the day he joined the club. Turned out to be the perfect nickname.

redsock said...

And I wanted to take years off his.

redsock said...

Just don't get all DFW on us

?

posting links or writing 4,000 comments?

redsock said...

4,000 word comments, that is.

Tony said...

Boy, didn't take long for Kazmir to regain his mojo, did it? That dude can sure as shit pitch.

Well, there is the whole 16th place/protected draft pick issue.

I think they'll end up fucking even that up and winning just enough to finish like 15th or something. That'd be a great capper to their season.

The Outhouse That Ruth Built

I wonder...will anybody try to use the "House that Ruth Built" moniker for the new Toilet? After all, it's a completely different building from the one Ruth played in. Maybe "the House that Jackass Yankees Fans Built"?

Tony said...

redsock, I want your next Schadenfreude post to be rife with footnotes. In fact, I am demanding it.

Jere said...

i guarantee lots of people will say the house that Jeter built

efd said...

Jere, I was just about to say the same thing.

Jere said...

solo blast

ish said...

Maybe the house that Jeter tore down.

ish said...

Or the house that Jeter closed.

redsock said...

"Corporate Welfare Park"

...

not sure if footnotes are possible in blogger - they probably are, but i don't know how.

Jere said...

way to get 2 quick outs right after the dong, Dice

Jere said...

talking about new Toilet, ish. Unless you know something we don't...

Tony said...

I'm assuming you weren't being sarcastic about that, jere; it's definitely a good thing Dice just gave up that dong and nothing else.

redsock, I was thinking about that too. I guess the closest you could really get would be Pozterisks.

A Conformer said...

Do they blow up the old one? Or demolish it piece by piece?

ish said...

CATWALK DONG!!

Jere said...

it would've been sarcastic if I was rooting for the Rays, I guess. No sarc.

Maybe I'll have to reinstate the "non-sarcasm mark." (#)

efd said...

Bay Bay dong!

Jere said...

Magic Dong for Bay.

L-girl said...

DOUNG!!

Tony said...

CANADIAN BACON!!!!!!!

Jere said...

I don't want to see any Yankees injured!#

redsock said...

it was such a shot, it truly has not come down!!!

A Conformer said...

Did that ball just stay up on the catwalk?

ish said...

O'Brien: "[This] is a bizarre place. If you've never been here, it's weird. It's a weird, weird place."

Jere said...

so what do Staats & co say about this stadium? Do they admit it's a piece of shit?

efd said...

Jason Bay becomes the second player after Daryl Boston to hit a home run in a town bearing his name.

Maybe.

ish said...

The ball is still high above the field.

redsock said...

don't they play in st. petersburg, though, not tampa?

A Conformer said...

Bonds' 756 ball should have stayed up on a catwalk. The attempts to get up there would've been comical to say the least.

efd said...

well, yeah, there's that. :)

Jere said...

Tyler Houston hit two dongs at the Astrodome.

ish said...

A, they do play in St. Petersburg. In fact, even if they played in Tampa, Tampa Bay is merely an area, not the name of the city. But whatever.

Ride, Captain, Ride on your MYSTERY SHIP!!

efd said...

Tyler Houston hit two dongs at the Astrodome.

Cool!

(see, it was a conversation starter!)

Whoa, Vari-dong!!

Jere said...

TEK DONG. THIS IS FUN. FUN ENOUGH FOR ALL CAPS I TELL YA.

ish said...

And that mystery ship flew a LONG, LONG way!

redsock said...

he clubbed that foul right before it too.

red dot: 4 hits allowed, 4 dongs

Jere said...

"A, they do play in St. Petersburg. In fact, even if they played in Tampa, Tampa Bay is merely an area, not the name of the city. But whatever."

More importantly, his name isn't Jason Tampabay, ha

ish said...

That home run breaks the record for most home runs by a Red Sox catcher.

andy said...

this is playoff ready

ish said...

WHEELS!!!!!

A Conformer said...

Back to back Jason dongs!

4 hits, 4 dongs for Kazmir. There goes his sub-3 ERA season.

ish said...

lmao, Jere

redsock said...

Kaz: ummmm, what was that blur that went by my right side?

Jere said...

Just confirmed: Reggie Cleveland has given up homers in Cleveland. Never hit any homers in his career. But he's on the "gave up" list.

nixon33 said...

HOLY SHIT WHAT A SHOT VARITEK HIT!

ish said...

Kazmir pitching like his girlfriend just broke up with him or something. Or his cat died.

efd said...

I imagine there's been at least one player named Washington who has hit a home run in DC.

nick said...

Jacoby breaks the dong streak with a mere...wazzit...hit.

p.s. your cat is dead.

A Conformer said...

Donnie Kazmir, you're out of your element!

ish said...

Goodnight, Red Dot.

Did you know there was a baseball player about 100 years ago named Bill James whose nickname was "Seattle" Bill? His birthplace: Iowa Hill, California.

efd said...

Hale not auditioning for the manager's job in Milwaukee.

nixon33 said...

i think remy is enjoying this more than any of us. kinda funny...

redsock said...

STILL NO OUTS IN THE 4TH!!

nick said...

batting practice over?

A Conformer said...

He might hit someone on purpose just to be able to get out of this game.

Oh, never mind. No need of that. Remember when this guy used to dominate us?

ish said...

Kazmir finally looking more like the youngest pitcher on the Rays staff.

PEDROIA'S TRADEMARK. Head high!

efd said...

redsock said...

gross "plays it on a hop"

most runs allowed by kazmir in any start of his career, i believe

efd said...

Anyone want to lay odds on a Kazmir injury announcement following this game?

efd said...

anyone besides kkh, that is :)

Jere said...

how about The House The Yankees Watched the Red Sox Win the Next 100 World Series From?

nixon33 said...

i say fuck it, i sat throw at someone tonight in the later innings. bring in timlin if you have to, who cares if he gets suspended.

Jere said...

11-1. Keep pounding.

ish said...

That'd be weird to have footnotes in comments.

efd said...

Yooooooouuuuuk!!!

Looks like that scoreless streak this year in Tropicana Field will soon be over.

Tony said...

Youk's telling FY "this MVP race ain't over yet, pal!"

Gotta run...nice to see the Sox taking TB to the woodshed. Night, everybody!

andy said...

This is how we all know the sox can do it. They paced themselves all year and now explode. They really showed something against Toronto too. People were looking at them going 1-3 in that series.

Jere said...

What's this guy's deal? Name is Turkey Tyson. But his real name was Cecil Washington Tyson. But his nickname was Slim.

Five names, one at bat.

Can you tell I was looking up guys named Washington?

efd said...

Bay's new walking-up-to-the-plate music: "Up On The Catwalk," by Simple Minds.

ish said...

Yeah, and the worst performance was from a guy who was tipping his pitches.

Jere said...

HBP. No ejection. Wasn't "such a pitch."

ish said...

That ball grazed him on the uniform. Eject Dice! And Francona! He retaliated!

efd said...

huh, so I guess the umpires can use some discretion after all.

andy said...

Wait how is Dice still in the game?

Jere said...

Arrojo holds a positive record?

andy said...

What sucks about our bullpen is that if Timlin comes in right now he loses the game.

Jere said...

Tito's in hog heaven right now thinking of how he can save the key bullpen guys. Okay, maybe pork purgatory.
