G11: Red Sox 6, Orioles 4

Orioles - 000 040 000 - 4  8  1
Red Sox - 014 100 00x - 6 12 1
Kevin Youkilis sparked the Sox with his first four-hit game of the season: single, two doubles, home run. He drove in four runs, three on a dong to left in the third.

Beckett stumbled in the fifth. The inning began with a single, double, walk, bases-loaded walk, double and fielding error. But with a man on second and no outs -- tying run at the plate -- he settled down, getting out of trouble, then ending his night by setting down the side in order with a seven-pitch sixth inning.

And the bullpen was stellar once again. Okajima, Saito and Papelbon combined for a 3-2-0-0-4 line.

Also: Cleveland scored 14 runs in the second inning against the Yankees and won 22-4. Because the Rays lost to Chicago, the Red Sox hopped over them into fourth place. At 5-6, we are 3 GB the high-flying Blue Jays.

***

Adam Eaton (9.00, 58 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.46, 154 ERA+)

Eaton has made only one start this season: last Sunday against the Rays. He went 4-8-4-2-6, 100 and Baltimore lost 11-3.

Eaton had a 5.80 ERA (75 ERA+) for the Phillies in 107 innings last year.

'xeira dong, 2-0 them. This Carmona fellow is still in the league?

redsock said...

Jays and A's 2-2 in the 11th in that big piece of crap down the street.

redsock said...

Wang for the Chokers. Be patient, Spiders, the runs shall come shortly.

Jere said...

Chooooooo

hits a 3-run dong off single-A superstar Wang. 3-2 us.

redsock said...

the runs shall come shortly*

See?

NY Mets IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA

Thats a nice line, finally money well spent Omar

Jere said...

Talk about boos.

Chien Ming Dong pooping the pull-out sofa. 4 runs in, second and third.

Jere said...

6-2 CLeve. Great shot of all the empty 2500 dollar seats. To me the worst part about it is how they don't let anyone sit there when they're empty.

Jere said...

With the mega-boos for Wang, Kim comes out as a TOTAL Laura when it comes to booing your own!

Make it 9-2!!

Jere said...

Kim: 3-1, you don't have to swing.

Me: Or you could swing for a grand dong.

Asdrubal: Hits grand dong.

13-2 Cleveland.

Jere said...

McCarver calls it "Rocky Mountain High Stadium" before quickly correcting to Mile High.

Jere said...

14-2 on yet another dong! Still second inning.

This guy Claggett's making his debut. His ERA must be.....quite un-low.

Pepe Lepew said...

I see ex-Missoula Osprey Lyle Overbay had a game-winning home run.
BTW, I knew all along last night we were going to win. [ducks]

Pepe Lepew said...

I will make a *bold* prediction that Wang goes on the DL tomorrow.
An ERA of 34!

redsock said...

Why is Wang pitching so bad? It's not October.

redsock said...

A 14-run second inning?????

HAHAHAHAHAHHA

CLE: 0(14)1
MFY: 200

Amy said...

I predict a Schadenfreude post soon....

Enjoy the game tonight, folks. We will be out and about.

tim said...

Just saw this, hahahahahahahahahahahaahahahah

Jere said...

20-2. I require more.

redsock said...

Holy fuck.

Is anyone left in the stands?

Kevin said...

How long until they start yelling for Swisher to come in to pitch again?

redsock said...

How long until they start yelling for Swisher to replace Wang in the rotation?

redsock said...

I Need MoreSpiders on pace for 36 runs.

charlie pioli said...

Swisher couldn't pitch as bad as Wang if he tried.

Manny with two bombs against the Rockies! He has a HR against ever club in the MLB.

Kevin said...

"How long until they start yelling for Swisher to replace Wang in the rotation?"

hahaha

It's funny because it's true.

RedSoxDiehard said...

I like how the visitor's part of the scoreboard looks in the new stadium.

A Conformer said...

Man, I come see why there are 23 comments so long before the game and see it's because the MFY have almost as many runs against them. Cool.

BTW, I predict a sweep of the O's to climb over .500.

Jere said...

The Swisher cheers started in the second today--they said he had his glove over his face while it happened.

A friend of mine just called--Yankee fan--said his parents went to this game. And they're already home! He said his dad was pissed about the $70 he spent in food on two people.

redsock said...

Tabloids, don't fail me now!

westcoastsox said...

Heh, once I saw the scoreboard on ESPN, I knew I could count on this thread for some chuckles. Schadenfreude indeed. Will be listening to Sox on XM on way to friend's pool. It's HOT in the bay area today.

(Back to lurking)

redsock said...

Same oatmeal as last night. Leftovers, if you will.

Benjamin said...

Leftovers, if you will.

I prefer to think of them as "scrapies".

andy said...

Youk Williams at cleanup is really fucking making my blood pressure drop.

L-girl said...

Will lawyers stay out of here and let me listen to the game...

Will the game end by 10:00...

L-girl said...

A, do you remember being at a game in - where? Chicago? - it was the midwest trip - looking at the scoreboard and the Yankees were losing 21-1 (IIRC)? Wasn't that also against the Spiders? That was the time Georgie started piping "inspirational" bad music during batting practice.

Kevin said...

21-4

hahaha

L-girl said...

"With the mega-boos for Wang, Kim comes out as a TOTAL Laura when it comes to booing your own!"

Kim = smart and cool

A Conformer said...

What's the time now, EST? If it's 7 I might be able to gamethread a little bit.

L-girl said...

7 it is

L-girl said...

Ofer, where are you? Someplace that will make me envious, no doubt...

Benjamin said...

Will lawyers stay out of here and let me listen to the game...

Sorry, we'll try to keep it down.

redsock said...

L: Billy Ocean!!!

When asked why he posted the messages -- "Winners Never Quit, Quitters Never Win" and "When the going gets tough, the tough get goin'" (and music by Billy Ocean?!?) -- Steinbrenner issued a statement: "I wanted to show the fans that we have the same courage and the same attitudes all New Yorkers have had in fighting back from that terrible episode on 9/11. New Yorkers never give up and the Yankees never give up."

***

Jere said...

How slow is Molina? He hit a ball before that the pitcher got stuck between his legs, reached around behind him to grab, threw to second, and they still doubled up Molina at first.

L-girl said...

"Sorry, we'll try to keep it down."

Oh ha ha. Not gamethreaders who happen to be lawyers. Just the lawyers who employ me.

L-girl said...

A, that can't be it. The incident I'm thinking of happened in 1999.

L-girl said...

We were on our rustbelt baseball road trip, so it was between July 20 and early August. And it was more towards the beginning of the trip.

L-girl said...

Jere, I thought more about your G___ L___ question, would I boo him on opening day in 2004. The answer is: it would be a great test of my strength and principles, and I hope I would pass the test. No one is perfect, so I don't know if I would do the right thing, but most of us know how we'd like ourselves to act.

redsock said...

Beckett looking good.

A Conformer said...

Ofer, where are you? Someplace that will make me envious, no doubt...I'm in Utila, a small island off the carribean coast of Honduras. Island life is really strange, I must say. And I'm starting a diving course tomorrow.

L-girl said...

We have a good friend from Honduras. Looks beautiful there.

Kevin said...

Nice, quick inning.

22-4 Spiders

Kevin said...

Spiders load 'em up with 1 out.

Jere said...

On the Yanks' person-ual scoreboard, they didn't have a 14 for that second inning, so they just used a white line next to a four.

A Conformer said...

Honduras is surprisingly very much US-influenced. I think I've seen more US fast food chains in one day in Honduras than in 10 months in the rest of Latin America. But I hear Costa Rica and Panama are quite the same in that regard.

L-girl said...

Our friend is in Canada, so he can be married to his man (who is from Detroit).

Kevin said...

Adam Eaton...if he's anything like how he was with the Phillies this should be an easy win.

Kevin said...

Not good.

A Conformer said...

A K would be welcome

L-girl said...

July 24, 1999How funny, I remembered the game backwards. It was Spiders 1 - Yankees 21.

I was confusing it with the one Allan posted from 2004.

Kevin said...

Needed that K.

L-girl said...

yooooooooooooook

Jere said...

2 nice plays by Youk that inn.

Kevin said...

Jam escaped.

A Conformer said...

So, are there any news on the Lowrie surgery front?

L-girl said...

Lowrie is on his way to Arizona for a 3rd opinion.

redsock said...

Yook hit that to Felix, PA.

Jere said...

Wk
(double: youk)

Jere said...

And we've got Pedro, IA.

L-girl said...

Castig: Here's JD Drew who has been ON FIRE for the last few days.

Of course he's been ON FIRE!!!, that's his name!

Kevin said...

Leadoff double = nice.

Edward Lee said...

Wow. Such a good AB by Youk. With two strikes, he takes two pitches that were inside by an inch, then gets a third one on the black and hammers it into LF.

Kevin said...

Manny-bashing here on MASN.

L-girl said...

canuck walk

L-girl said...

"Manny-bashing here on MASN."

They are major offenders.

L-girl said...

Kevin, we once had a Kevin around here who turned out to be a notorious troll. You're not Magnolia, are you?

Kevin said...

Gah, that looked good off the bat.

Kevin said...

Tek!

redsock said...

"bill of the cap high" Pie

OMGTEK!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

A Varidouble!

Edward Lee said...

Wow. I think Varitek has hit more balls hard in two weeks than he did all of last season.

Kevin said...

Nope, I've been lurking here for a while but just started posting the other day.

L-girl said...

I am half-kidding. Quarter-kidding. We went through a lot with this troll, it made me paranoid.

Benjamin said...

At least we got the one.

Kevin said...

I still find it incredible that the Phillies were willing to eat both Eaton's and Jenkins's contracts.

15.25 million between the two.

L-girl said...

This doesn't sound smart.

Jere said...

Shatner's gonna get beamed up

redsock said...

GIFT for Roberts. Fuck you UMP

redsock said...

Shatner's gonna get beamed up.

Actually almost literally LOL'd .

redsock said...

cute hat

L-girl said...

"cute hat"

some of us have radio, y'know...

Kevin said...

Bleh, walks.

Kevin said...

That works.

L-girl said...

Didn't hurt us, tho.

So is the strike zone as insane as the radio guys are saying?

redsock said...

I've missed seeing the most crazy calls.

Heidi was wearing a cute hat.

L-girl said...

Oh, Heidi. Next time I won't ask.

L-girl said...

fuck yeah!

Benjamin said...

More like that, FY.

Kevin said...

FY seems to be returning to form.

Benjamin said...

Shift that.

L-girl said...

yay papi!

Kevin said...

That's a good sign.

Edward Lee said...

The strike zone is completely amorphous -- perhaps not so surprising given that Doug Eddings is behind the plate.

Aubrey Huff took a 3-0 fastball a foot off the plate that was called a strike, then immediately took an identical pitch for a BB.

L-girl said...

radio guys say the ump is santa claus for pitchers. they're not saying amorphous so much as a HUGE strike zone

Benjamin said...

YOUK!

L-girl said...

YOOOOOOOOOOK!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

SWEAT-SOAKED DONG

Kevin said...

SWEAT-POWERED!!!

Kevin said...

Yep, Eaton hasn't changed a bit since leaving the Phillies.

L-girl said...

sweaty dongs are the best kind

/andy

Benjamin said...

What an incredibly shitty strike zone.

redsock said...

"consistent zone"

yeah, consistently wrong and contrary to the rule book.

but we'll just have the batters adjust, rather than have the umps follow the rules.

Benjamin said...

All over the place.

Kevin said...

13th walk of the season for BBay.

L-girl said...

i'm loving jason bay

Benjamin said...

Stolehn base.

Benjamin said...

DR!

Kevin said...

5-0

L-girl said...

Dr Single!

Kevin said...

Can we get a 14-run inning?

redsock said...

Red Sox Being Spiders?

L-girl said...

stolehn :)

stoulen?

Kevin said...

Apparently not.

L-girl said...

we'll have to settle for 4 this inning.

Benjamin said...

I love playing the Orioles at Fenway.

Benjamin said...

stoulen?

Borrowed?

Benjamin said...

This strike zone pisses me off when Beckett's getting it too.

Kevin said...

OTT

L-girl said...

borrowed?

Benjamin said...

borrowed?

Do people steal stuff in Canada? It seems impolite.

L-girl said...

that's my speedy boy!

Benjamin said...

Grounder to second. At least he was safe.

Kevin said...

Time for havoc on the bases.

L-girl said...

I thought that's where you were going. It's funny how when you live here, the stereotypes stop making any sense. Mostly.

L-girl said...

safe is safe

Benjamin said...

That pitch was practically over Pedroia's head.

L-girl said...

those 14 runs were the most the yanekes have ever allowed in one inning. historic!

Kevin said...

Time for Papi to break out?

Benjamin said...

Pourloined?

L-girl said...

yeah papi! is this is 1st multi-hit game?

Benjamin said...

Papi pleases me tonight.

Kevin said...

I'll take that.

Signs of hope.

Benjamin said...

No, he had 2 on April 12.

L-girl said...

"Pourloined?"

lotta vowels going on there

L-girl said...

"No, he had 2 on April 12."

thanks. good.

L-girl said...

we are sweat-powered tonight!

a triple away from the cycle

Kevin said...

Nice. Youk still hitting around .500 on the season.

redsock said...

This pitcher doesn't have the red Sox eaton out of his hand.

redsock said...

those 14 runs were the most the yanekes have ever allowed in one inning.i have a baguette in my shorts.

redsock said...

so much for kirk's pre-game plan to have eaton keep that pitch count per inning down. 93 thru 4.

Kevin said...

Weak.

L-girl said...

baguette > scone ?

Kevin said...

Jam.

K please?

L-girl said...

a jammy jam

Kevin said...

Meh.

Well, now we can maybe get the force at home.

redsock said...

i guess that is not a strike anymore.

Edward Lee said...

I think the strike zone might be some sort of trapezoidal dealie where the lower corners are huge and the top corners are tiny, but I am not sure.

L-girl said...

wtf josh?

Kevin said...

Fuck.

redsock said...

that was kind of a force -- forcing a run home with a walk

Kevin said...

It's an amoeba, it keeps shifting as it goes on.

L-girl said...

bah

Kevin said...

MEGA FUCK

L-girl said...

something to cheer you up

Edward Lee said...

Hooray. Javier Lopez is warming up in the pen.

Kevin said...

It would be nice to have more than one outfielder with a decent arm.

Kevin said...

Why the fuck is Lopez up?

Kevin said...

Nice play there.

redsock said...

Wang's next start? Friday against us!

Kevin said...

Strike amoeba keeps shape-shifting.

L-girl said...

"Wang's next start? Friday against us!"

Don't expect him.

redsock said...

normal long man masterson starting on monday

but why bring in possibly your worst pitcher when you need to stem the bleeding?

Kevin said...

This inning is dragging on too fucking long.

Kevin said...

That...works.

L-girl said...

please note we still have the lead

Kevin said...

"but why bring in possibly your worst pitcher when you need to stem the bleeding?"

My thoughts exactly.

Benjamin said...

Runs, please.

Kevin said...

WTP

Finally.

redsock said...

that seems "struck well", but it was an easy chance for werd

Benjamin said...

Lowell is so fucking slow.

L-girl said...

doctor!

L-girl said...

"Lowell is so fucking slow."

The sun is hot.

Kevin said...

The Doctor is in.

Kevin said...

Strike amoeba.

Benjamin said...

Tek being oddly productive these past couple days.

L-girl said...

Even a stopped clock...

Benjamin said...

Blehsbury.

L-girl said...

and the red sox strand a pair

Kevin said...

Wasted opportunity.

redsock said...

he really should run faster.

L-girl said...

he really should be perfect, or else we will boo him

Benjamin said...

Still loving Green's fielding.

Benjamin said...

NESN quickly goes to commercial.

Kevin said...

Nice.

L-girl said...

radio ad extolling the many pleasures of being a soldier

Kevin said...

Ouch.

Kevin said...

Papi dong time?

Kevin said...

Fuck...no.

redsock said...

Me, 4:07 PM, Yankees up 2-0:
"Be patient, Spiders, the runs shall come shortly."

Just sayin'.
