G17: Red Sox 16, Yankees 11

Yankees - 202 202 210 - 11 15  1
Red Sox - 000 531 34x - 16 13 1
Wow. Hard to recap this one. Some highlights:

Beckett threw a whopping 73 pitches in the first three innings, but managed to stick around for five frames (5-10-8-4-3, 116). Burnett (5-8-8-3-3, 91) also allowed eight runs. The last time both starters in a Yankees-Red Sox game each allowed at least eight runs was June 26, 1987 (Tommy John and Roger Clemens).

Varitek's first-pitch grand slam with two outs in the 4th brought the Sox from 6-1 to 6-5.

Jacoby Ellsbury's first dong of the season tied the score at 6-6 and Jason Bay's two-run double gave the Sox a 8-6 lead.

After New York had moved ahead 10-9, Mike Lowell belted a three-run home run to left. Boston 12-10! Lowell also had a three-run double in the 8th -- thus tying a career-high six RBIs in only two innings. It was also the most RBI by a Red Sox player against the Yankees since Carlton Fisk on April 6, 1973, Opening Day!

Dustin Pedroia reached base all five times; Kevin Youkilis scored four runs; Bay scored three times and drove in three.

On the other side, Robinson Cano doubled and homered twice, driving in five runs (tying his career-high). Mark Teixeira walked five times in six plate appearances, the first Yankee with five walks in a game since Roger Maris on May 22, 1962.

In the last two games, the Yankee bullpen has thrown 177 pitches in eight innings, allowing 10 hits, five walks and 11 runs.

And this was the first Yankees/Red Sox game in which the Yankees blew a six-run lead and lost since May 16, 1968 -- almost 41 years ago.
Yankees - 106 201 000 - 10 9 2
Red Sox - 300 110 06x - 11 14 0
***

A.J. Burnett (3.20, 150 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.79, 134 ERA+)
           GS    IP    H   BB    K
Burnett 3 19.2 13 9 17
Beckett 3 19 16 9 20
Beckett has not allowed a home run this year.

Beckett, Burnett and Mike Lowell were teammates on the Marlins from 2001-05. Dr. D:
We're going to have our hands full facing a guy like A.J. High-velocity guy -- really good curveball. But that doesn't mean he's unbeatable.
Also: Nick Green has had three consecutive two-hit games. ... As expected, Jonathan Van Every is the new backup outfielder.

Friday Night Videos: Dan Lamothe has a NESN clip of the game-ending blast. Jere shot a video of Bay's dong from the bleachers.

redsock said...

Alright, that's an improvement.

redsock said...

L: It's been insane. I missed 4-5 batters in the top of the 7th but that's it. Work has been amazingly quiet.

the last time the yankees blew a 6-run lead and lost to the red sox was in 1968.

L-girl said...

Wow, the recap on the radio was insane.

redsock said...

In the 7th I said Lowell hasn't done shit.

It's the 8th and he's got 6 RBI!!!!

L-girl said...

Did I hear that right, Tek GS?

redsock said...

Tek's first pitch slam in the 4th changed the score from6-1 to 6-5!

redsock said...

I don't think Amy is dancing around and poitning her fingers at Harvey, but she must be VERY HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

That was right after I stopped listening. :)

Amy is there with a bunch of NYY fans. Yay!

redsock said...

from the 4th on, my scorecard looks like a jackson pollack painting.

L-girl said...

Make Amy apologize!

L-girl said...

L-girl said...

"getting swisher should be a slam dunk"

Edward Lee said...

Throwing the split once every 20 pitches is a good idea.
