ALCS 1: Red Sox 2, Rays 0

Red Sox - 000 010 010 - 2  7  0
Rays - 000 000 000 - 0 4 0
Matsuzaka took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and the bullpen trio of Hideki Okajima, Justin Masterson and Jonathan Papelbon shut the door on the Rays.

In the fifth inning against Shields, Jason Bay walked and raced to third on Mark Kotsay's pop fly double down the left field line. Jed Lowrie's fly out to right scored Bay with the night's first run. (The Red Sox had threatened in the first. Dustin Pedroia walked with one out and went to third on Kevin Youkilis's two-out ground-rule double to right, but J.D. Drew struck out.)

Boston made it 2-0 in the eighth when Pedroia singled with one out. He stole second before David Ortiz walked and then he scored on Youkilis's double off the tip of Carl Crawford's glove in shallow left.

Dice walked three Rays in the first, but wiggled out of trouble, retiring retired 16 out of the next 17 batters. He started the seventh by allowing two singles, but with runners at first and third he got a fly ball to short left, a strikeout and a fielder's choice.

Matsuzaka allowed two more singles to start the seventh and was pulled. Jeemer got Carlos Pena to hack on 3-0 and fly out to Drew in right-center. Then Masterson got Evan Longoria to hit into a 6-4-3 DP. Bot set down Tampa in order in the ninth: K, PF5, K.

NLCS: The Philles held off the Dodgers 8-5 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.

It Is On!

Tampa Bay and Boston met 18 times during the regular season. The Rays won 10 games, the Red Sox eight. Eleven of the 18 games were decided by three runs or fewer, six by one run (the Rays won all six of those), two in extra innings. Home records: Rays 8-1, Red Sox 7-2. ... And they brawled on June 5.

Speaking of numbers, does 9 really equal 8?

The Red Sox added Mike Timlin to the roster for the ALCS. Gil Valezquez -- who was added mid-DS in place of Mike Lowell -- was left off. ... The Rays added pitcher Edwin Jackson and subtracted Eric Hinske.

Joe Maddon, on the evenness of the two teams:
I think you can expect a lot of what you saw during the regular season; I do. There will be a lot of tight games, I think. Both sides have got good starting pitching and bullpens. Offensively, they probably have a little bit more hitting ability overall, but we have that ability to hit in the clutch. ...

[I]n a seven-game series like this, you truly have to play it one at a time ... it's really magnified at this particular juncture. ...

They're probably saying the same things — it's pretty even based on the familiarity with the two groups, the number of times that we have played against one another, the close games we have played against each another; the fact that we've finally broken through up there a little bit and they got their win down here. It's really a very balanced situation and it's going to come down to the pitching once again. ... It's going to be a grind-it-out kind of series.
Fox:
Boston and Tampa are young, tough, hungry, and athletic. They're everything the New York Yankees are not.
The Rays bullpen has been lights out against the Red Sox in Tampa. In the nine Trop games, the quintet of Grant Balfour, J.P. Howell, Dan Wheeler, Trever Miller, and Chad Bradford has made 18 appearances, pitching 18.2 innings. They have allowed only 11 hits and 7 walks (0.96 WHIP) and one earned run (0.48 ERA), while striking out 15.

From watching Hot Corner, his ball to strike ratio is similar on his warmups.

redsock said...

buck: he sure has

DRINK

nick said...

I see that some comenter named redsock mentioned this before the game started:

must remember to relax and not live and die on each dice pitch -- must ... remember ... will see walks ... must ...

yeppers.

Tony said...

Dice, if you could not walk the bases loaded again, that'd really help us all out quite a bit. Thanks.

ish said...

Thanks, D. Hope you didn't pull any of that pubic hair you've got on your chin during that swing. That would've hurt.

ish said...

Uh, Castig and Dale... LOOK A BASEBALL GAME! We don't care about fucking football.

redsock said...

dice-KK

Tony said...

Now here's the Dice we all thought we were getting.

redsock said...

dear varitek:

pls be the leader/human-computer-behind-the-plate that everyone thinks you are and have dice pitch like this every inning.

phil said...

42 through two.

Tony said...

Jesus, even his 1-2-3 innings take forever.

Amy said...

MUCH better. Now get to Shields.

ish said...

Through 2...

Shields: 35/19
Matsuzaka: 43/23

redsock said...

chip not as excited at dice's 1-2-3 inning.

phil said...

Er, 43.

Tony said...

Another fantastic Tek at-bat.

redsock said...

buck: coco had no intent of sliding towards the bag

wtf shithead????????

he slid RIGHT OVER THE BAG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tony said...

Well.

That sucked.

redsock said...

chip - another 1-2-3 inning for BIG GAME JAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

phil said...

"JD Drew struggles to catch"

WTF IS THIS SHIT

Amy said...

Struggles to catch?

redsock said...

oh, i hate gomes, for fucking sure.


"drew struggles to catch"
FU TBS

phil said...

"Just missed a home run in his first at bat"

To shallow left, you fucknut.

Jere said...

Caray and Buck only a little less anti-Red Sox so far this series. Tiny bit.

redsock said...

TWATWAFFLES!

Tony said...

Take a seat, chump.

phil said...

Daisuke really needs to shave his upper lip. It looks like a Hitler mustache in this fluorescent lighting.

Sit, asshole.

Amy said...

These guys do love Tek.

redsock said...

phil - and it was a high lazy fly ball to normal left also.

redsock said...

NO -- we like ADOLF-K!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

darling has not been impressive. have they told him to be an idiot?

Jere said...

Caray: Why say the batter's "ready to unload" and not "the pitcher's ready to blow it by him"? Oh right cuz the Rays are batting. I know it was a hitter's count but come on.

Tony said...

Blargh, and he was doing so well.

Jere said...

"darling has not been impressive."

yet he's the Vin Scully of this bunch

Amy said...

Not bad. Just one walk.

Tony said...

Ah, there we go. Take a seat, Longoria.

phil said...

Runs, please.

Jere said...

Fangoria's a horror show at the plate so far

ish said...

darling has not been impressive. have they told him to be an idiot?

It's the partners effect. You could be the best color commentator but when you work next to a couple of yahoo stupid twatbags like Caray and Buck, you tend to loose an IQ point or two.

Or 36.

Kind of like when Dave O'Brien works with Rick Sutcliffe.

ish said...

4

Shields: 42/25
Matsuzaka: 59/32

redsock said...

scully? he's roger angell in his prime with these 2 bozos

Tony said...

I occasionally agree with Bill Simmons, but I'm fully in agreement with him on this (not that it's such a mindblowing point): if Ortiz keeps hitting like this, the Sox lose this series.

redsock, I was surprised you never posted any thoughts on his Manny column. I thought it was well written, if somewhat unfair to Theo.

nick said...

OK. C'mon Sox! I want lots of 4th inning runs!

Tony said...

Goddamn it.

nick said...

That is soooo not the way to do it.

Amy said...

Oh damn it. A DP. Not making Shields work hard at all.

redsock said...

i don't read simmons anymore.

fuckin dp.

A Conformer said...

Shit, shit, shit
I knew I shouldn't have gone back on my vow never to enter NYC with a car again. I left Allentown at 6 to have enough time to get here for first pitch, and here I am, turning the TV on with 2 outs in the bottom of the third. Fucking GWB.
I did catch Jon Miller & Joe Morgan on the radio- Daisuke's 1st inning sounded painful.

(Good evening, all).

Tony said...

Take a seat, Crawford.

Am I nuts or has Dice looked as good since the 2nd as he has all season?

redsock said...

darling asks tito a Q about flo and says "ORtiz" a la buck!!!

phil said...

Sit, assholes.

Jere said...

ofer, will you be in NYC tomorrow night?

ish said...

Dice Kay > Floyd

Finally he's looking like he's on it.

Tony said...

Take a seat, Floyd.

Still bitter he didn't help out the 02 Sox as much as I thought he would.

A Conformer said...

ofer, will you be in NYC tomorrow night?

I'm probably here for at least a week. Why do you ask?

Tony said...

Now that was a great inning.

ish said...

69/40 for Dice now.
48/30 for Shields

Jere said...

"I'm probably here for at least a week. Why do you ask?"

I'll be signing copies of my book at that Red Sox bar, Professor Thom's before the game tomorrow night. (Which also means I won't be in the thread tomorrow night as I'll be watching the game there.)

ish said...

So, Ofer... Where have you been so far this summer? Can you list the cities you've stayed in?

ish said...


I'll be signing copies of my book at that Red Sox bar, Professor Thom's before the game tomorrow night. (Which also means I won't be in the thread tomorrow night as I'll be watching the game there.)


Damn, that sounds awesome.

SoSock said...

OK, I was going to be polite to Bob and not log in until after he left, but I just can't keep my mouth shut about this crew!
Shallow flies that "just missed being home runs", JD "struggling" to make a catch, YELLING out "Boston strands two!", and "Big Game James?".
What kind of non-proffesional shit is this, and why is it tolerated in something as prominent as a LCS?

Jere said...

Caray, again, why say the Rays are trying to dethrone the Red Sox, and not mention that the Red Sox are also trying to win? How is this guy allowed to do this?

phil said...

"All these fans making their confident sounds".

Tony said...

In lieu of listening to the announcers, I'm playing the new Dylan Bootleg Series. If you like latter-day Dylan at all, you need to own it. "Red River Shore" is his 1990s "Blind Willie McTell", which is saying something.

Way to get it started, Bay!

A Conformer said...

What the fuck? How can they say this game is going for the home team? It's 0-0!

redsock said...

did sager just call yook "lucas"?

phil said...

KOTSAY!

Jere said...

Kotsay's hacking inadvertently pays off!

ish said...

Kotsay running from first to second reminded me of Forrest Gump.

I..WAS... RUNNINGGGG!!!

ish said...

4 walks but all bagels for Dice.

redsock said...

suck on that, big game james

Tony said...

I'm still in awe that Kotsay did something productive.

A Conformer said...

All these outside shot of the Trop make me think of how good it would look imploding.

ish said...

RUN!!!

Jere said...

there's a run, that's a run

SoSock said...

First BLOOD!!!!!

Tony said...

Yay a run!

redsock said...

bay scores a ruun!

nick said...

That run totally benefits the Rays! Let's benefit them some more!

phil said...

Runs are good.

ish said...

The way this game is going... That's a huge ass run.

phil said...

WHERE ARE YOUR CONFIDENT SOUNDS NOW

SoSock said...

Just hit your mandatory ground ball to the right side Tek.

ish said...

Ask and you shall receive, Sosock.

By the way, how are things?

redsock said...

WHAT A PLAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

an easy grounder right at him

Tony said...

Son of a bitch. And that was a good rip for Tek.

SoSock said...

DAMN!
Hit to the right, but still didn't get the run in

nick said...

not your traditional RBI guy. y'know, like a baseball player?

Tony said...

Aw, fiddlesticks.

nick said...

shit. I ws expecting 3 more RBI on that.

Jere said...

if he'd had a smaller glove we'd have another run

redsock said...

8-9-1 for dice. hold 'em!

A Conformer said...

So, Ofer... Where have you been so far this summer? Can you list the cities you've stayed in?

Hmmm... NY, Richmond, Philly and its northern suburbs, Allentown (PA), Ocean City (NJ), Charlotte, Myrtle Beach, Asheville (NC), Pigeon Forge (TN), DC... plus last year there were a bunch more. Oh, and I'm planning on coming to Boston on the 23rd or so- hopefully there will still be baseball played at that time...

A Conformer said...

That was a pretty smooth catch by Bartlett, I must admit.

SoSock said...

Let's go LBJ! Damn, that actually WAS a pretty good play :(

Ish - things are pretty much the same. The on-line car project has progressed nicely, but may have hit a wall. That's OK tho, with what I have we're awful close to being there already and Cat is now scouting out possible buys at Craig's list and a couple of local sites.

Jere said...

1pitch1out

ish said...

Ofer, did you fly or drive to the various cities?

A Conformer said...

I'll be signing copies of my book at that Red Sox bar, Professor Thom's before the game tomorrow night. (Which also means I won't be in the thread tomorrow night as I'll be watching the game there.)

Jere, sounds good. You'll be staying for the game, I suppose?

redsock said...

fuck the wall, sosock -- we're getting that $$$$$!

ish said...

This is amazing. 8 strikeouts in 4 2/3!

Jere said...

another one caught looking. effin yeah.

Tony said...

Take a seat, chump.

A Conformer said...

Ofer, did you fly or drive to the various cities?

No flights for me this summer, yet. I passed the time in today's drive estimating how many miles I've done- I think I'm around 5500 since July 1st.

ish said...

Season high in strikeouts: 9, against Oakland... in Oakland right after Japan.

Jere said...

"Jere, sounds good. You'll be staying for the game, I suppose?"

Yes. I don't care if we sell 0 books, I'm just always up for watching the Sox at Thom's, in the middle of NYC, with a million other Sox fans. So fun.

ish said...

5,500 sounds about right... I once drove 1,000 miles in one day.

A Conformer said...

Cash looks so much like Foulke, I was confused for a second there...

Amy said...

Did he struggle to catch that?

Tony said...

Woohoo!

Chip, I could do without the jinxing crap, please. This game is tense enough as it is.

redsock said...

drew struggles to run to rcf!!

i like how tbs says you do not fluke your way to 18 wins (dice) but we should toss out beckett's entire 2008 season and look at him as a 20-game winner ............ okay!

Jake of All Trades said...

Joe C also just said what shouldn't be said.

A Conformer said...

5,500 sounds about right... I once drove 1,000 miles in one day.

Sounds brutal. My record is about 450, but it took 10.5 hours. Some steel beams on a bridge on I-66 collapsed or something. 1000 miles, that would be around 14 hours?

ish said...

Joe C also just said what shouldn't be said.

I don't think it matters. I think it would take a major miracle to throw the Big Bagel.

s1c said...

Nothing better to wake up to than a Bay walk and a Kotsay double leading to the only run in the game.

Time for Pedroia to start a rally here.

A Conformer said...

Pedroia and Ortiz are going to start hitting... NOW

nick said...

amazing how the teams in this 1-0 game can just keep scoring runs.

Jake of All Trades said...

But isn't it always at least a minor miracle?

ish said...

Sounds brutal. My record is about 450, but it took 10.5 hours. Some steel beams on a bridge on I-66 collapsed or something. 1000 miles, that would be around 14 hours?

14 or 15 hours. There were quite a few stops in between. Probably added up to four or five hours though.

Left the motel in Lumberton, NC (20 miles from the SC border on I-95) at 9 AM... Got home to York, Maine (bout 10 miles from Portsmouth, NH) at 5 AM the next morning.

SoSock said...

When we were in the soap business doing the shows we averaged about 40K a year. I'm still driving that van and it's at about 395K now. So I'm crossing my fingers a lot these days about my own vehicle.

SoSock said...

Dear Laser Show Dustin
We miss you.
Come back soon
RSN

ish said...

That makes a little car that has 120k on it pretty optimistic, eh? I've never driven a car that's had more than 120k on it. My car last year didn't pass inspection and I just never really needed to get it fixed. Needs a couple of tires and the exhaust pipe might need to be repaired. Don't have the money right now to get the car back on the road. It's just sitting there.

A 2000 chevy cavalier... That was the car I drove 1,000 miles in one day with.

Tony said...

Jesus. Ortiz has looked AWFUL tonight.

ish said...

Yeah. Flo's gotta get back into the Flo... he's a huge key to this series.

Tony said...

Shit. That went way too damn fast.

nick said...

I really feel for Ortiz. FY's still getting some decent wood, but Papi's just...uncomfortable.

redsock said...

FUCKING A RED SOX -LET'S GO!!!

BIG GAME JAMES IS AHEAD 0-1!!!!

WE MUST START HITTING!!!!!!!!!!

nick said...

Car things.

When my parents lived in Lansing, MI, I'd drive each way stopping once for gas around buffalo. Google maps puts it around 650 miles.

My car went over 170k last night. desperately needs breaks. Had to replace the alternator 2 weeks ago. but overall it's been pretty good to me in the 4 years I've had it.

phil said...

Jere, tell the shop in south station to start carrying your book. I was stuck there for an hour and had to settle for something else.

phil said...

He's definitely settled down after the first couple innings.

Jere said...

looked more like HJ Upton on that one

ish said...

FUCK YEAH!!!

phil said...

Pedroia!

nick said...

ahh.. FUCK YEAH!!!

Tony said...

What a fucking play by FY!!!

Jere said...

Phil--that's funny, I actually thought of that last time I took a train from South Station. I think that store was named after a female--like Anna's Books or something?

SoSock said...

So Bob just mentioned that after the Red Sox pillage Tampa Bay today and tomorrow, our Carolina Panthers will be there to extend their agony on Sunday.
Ah, nothing like visiting a town and leaving it in shreds.

F-Y !!!!!!!

A Conformer said...

I certainly like Dice-BB better than Dice-H.

redsock said...

me likey fy


cowbells are going quieter...

ish said...

THANK YOU EVA!!!

Tony said...

Wow, Drew had to really struggle for that one, too!

Jere said...

thanks for the free out, lickwad

phil said...

89/52 through six.

Amy said...

So isn't it odd that they keep talking about the lack of offense on the part of TB? I thought there was some tradition against that. Or is that only when you are rooting for the other team?

s1c said...

We need some runs, now would be great as I head for work!

Time for Drew to get us started!!!

Pepe Lepew said...

Nice catch, Drew!
So, am I allowed to talk about *it* yet? Or would that be a faux pas?

redsock said...

i am enjoying this baseball game.

phil said...

It's Barbara's Bookstore.

I had to settle for Everything Is Illuminated.

Jere said...

Phil--in-commercial question: What was the name of that vegetarian restaurant in Providence you mentioned?

phil said...

Get out of this thread, pepe.

Tony said...

Q: Will I ever get sick of Papi in 2004?

A: Never, ever, ever.

ish said...

Castig just said 10 pitches for Dice in the last three innings.

!!!!!

redsock said...

chip said the magic word going to commercial - i think sox radio is saying it - we ain't chb - why not?

phil said...

Garden Grille. It's over the border into Pawtucket.

Julian's has a bunch of vegetarian stuff too but isn't only vegetarian.

Tony said...

Drew is good.

Amy said...

A leadoff hit! DON'T WASTE IT.

ish said...

And by 10 in the last three, I mean 10 for each inning.

redsock said...

well 10 in each of the last 3 innings = 30.

DREW - off BG James!!!!!!!!

Jake of All Trades said...

We don't believe jinxes or curses, but we respect tradition.

Amy said...

Yes!

phil said...

Capitalize, please.

Tony said...

Bay, also good.

We need insurance!

Jere said...

Yeah! 2 fucking on, none fucking out.

Thanks Phil--and we have discovered and love Julian's.

redsock said...

BIG GAME crumbling!!!!!!!!

ish said...

chip said the magic word going to commercial - i think sox radio is saying it - we ain't chb - why not?

They say it but they don't. National guys always do. Visiting broadcasters always do. Castig, for instance, will say everything else except for the two words. Although he'll talk about other pitchers having thrown no-hitters, using the term in that context. They say he hasn't allowed a hit... Why should that be any different?

ish said...

That was a cool catch.

Kotsay playing pepper out there!

nick said...

wow, great catch asshole!

Amy said...

Tradition, Ish. What else could it be?

redsock said...

GAPPER, pls

ish said...

Tradition, Ish. What else could it be?

Essackly.

A Conformer said...

Kotsay should check swing all the time- that was very close to a hit.

Jere said...

you can do this Jed

phil said...

Kebab & Curry on Thayer Street has tofu on the menu, so you can get those Indian dishes that usually have pressed cheese vegan if you want.

ish said...

Truck Stop going to warm for the Rays.

phil said...

Guess pepe really did get out of this thread.

Amy said...

Good at bat. Make this guy sweat.

ish said...

Mmmmm pressed cheese. I'll have some pressed ham with that as well.

Tony said...

This ump's strike zone is very wonky.

Not that I'm complaining at the moment.

Tony said...

Aww shit.

Amy said...

Good at bat, but bad ending.

A Conformer said...

Man, Maclelland's slowness is way more fun when it's for your team.

Anybody have any faith in Tek here? Amy?

ish said...

Large security force hanging out along the base lines

Amy said...

Up to Tek. Uh oh.

Tony said...

Fuck you, Tek. I mean it. Fuck you.

SoSock said...

Meeting on the mound to discuss how to handle this dangerous hitter!

phil said...

This town is remarkably empty of vegetarian restaurants otherwise, though.

Squander. :(

Amy said...

Nah, Ofer, have to admit I had no confidence....justifiably so.

Jere said...

fuck. the good news: Eva looks like an asshole enthusiastically waving everyone off with wildly swinging arms but gets called off.

ish said...

fuck. the good news: Eva looks like an asshole enthusiastically waving everyone off with wildly swinging arms but gets called off.

6.0 from the Swedish judge...

phil said...

I like to thing of GBA as a mid-inning Jewish moment.

Amy said...

A mid-inning Jewish moment? How's that, Phil?

ish said...

Ah well. Can't say I was surprised.

Tony said...

Aww shit.

Amy said...

Blah. We are still ahead.

ish said...

No mo no no.

ish said...

DP PLEEEZ.

redsock said...

chip says the ball shoulkd go in the tampa bay trophy case -- we played an alcs game and WE GOT A HIT - HERE's THE BALL

SoSock said...

Not a strike, mind, but a pitch called a strike.
Asshole

Jere said...

Sox hit ball in air: "that's playable". Rays hit ball in air: "that may drop."

Tony said...

Christ. That went to shit fast.

ish said...

Dale Arnold needs to practice his play-by-play. That last play there was more dead air than there was explanation of what was going on.

Yeah, we'll let the play happen and then tell you what went down.
