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.

I'm off to go house hunting. I hope to be back by game time.

redsock said...

I fear work will keep from all of this one. I hope I'm wrong.

Jere said...

I'm off to Fenway soon. Have fun everybody. I wonder why they didn't talk to Penny for that article about Beckett/Burnett.

Wait, Phormer Phil--you're looking for a house in Providence? Email me if you want, as we just did the same.

L-girl said...

I'll miss at least an hour of this one, probably more. Grumble grumble.

So happy I got to watch all of last night's game!

Amy will be there today, as well as Jere.

L-girl said...

Have fun Jere! Good work last night. Keep it up.

From a link at SoSH: "A.J. is readying for his start by watching the movie 300. He has a Spartan warrior tat on his left arm."

redsock said...

Red Sox: 89 RS - 67 RA
Yankees: 88 RS - 102 RA

Boston has scored 1 more run and allowed 35 fewer runs!

Only two other MLB teams - Baltimore (117) and Cleveland (103) - have allowed more runs than NYY.

redsock said...

No work yet. Seems *too* quiet.I fear work will arrive three minutes before the first pitch.

Grant Salzano said...

I just want to mention that Yook has an absolutely STOOPID 1.317 OPS.

L-girl said...

It looks like I'll be able to listen, but not thread.

Win today!

redsock said...

nice reaction from marte on that dong!!!!!

redsock said...

Dr. Defense!!!

redsock said...

single + walk = 2 on for swisher

redsock said...

decided to take mute off to see what was up. and i hear buck saying "and beckett threw up and around the head of abreu" -- and that was that.

MUTE!

redsock said...

why resort to lies?

why not say that although the umpires on the field did not feel beckett threw at abreu, bob watson did, so there you go.

redsock said...

beckett not looking good at all - no control.

L-girl said...

You should switch to radio.

redsock said...

nah - quiet picture is better than radio delay.

i didn't see buck on the pregame, thought maybe it was a different team.

redsock said...

3 balls to 4 of the first 6 hitters

redsock said...

"Commander Kick-Ass?"

"Commander Pitching Like Ass"

redsock said...

36 pitches (19 balls, 16 strikes)

hope he gets it together btw innings

L-girl said...

I meant radio only.

redsock said...

Dear Sox bats: Treat Burnett worse than Hitler.

redsock said...

Okay: GIDPs early, then a comeback win. Fine.

redsock said...

Beckett better in the 2nd.
Let's go, bats.

L-girl said...

JoSers: Would you believe the moderator from Thursday night's chat room nonsense is STILL commenting about it? I thought my "Neanderthal posse" might want to know. :)

redsock said...

That was the moderator? I thought the host was also the moderator?

Kevin said...

Mediocre first couple of innings.

redsock said...

Funny. Cause Joe the Host told me in several emails that he has never had sexist and homophobic comments like that before and if it did happen, those posters would be banned.

Kevin said...

FUCK

L-girl said...

Crap.

Kevin said...

Looks like it's going to be a long day for the pen.

L-girl said...

She (says she is female) is one of the moderators.

Why open a chat room if you don't want people insulting each other? That's the only thing that goes on in those things.

Every single person there was slinging insults, but *I* ought to know better. But she's not singling me out... oh noooo.

redsock said...

His email:
"Sexual talk is not accepted nor toleraterated on my program under any circumstances. It results in a ban from the chat room."

L-girl said...

Good thing we won last night. If we has lost that game, then this... we'd be going nuts. Nutser.

nixon33 said...

WTF is with Beckett today?

L-girl said...

"Sexual talk is not accepted nor toleraterated on my program under any circumstances. It results in a ban from the chat room."

The first comments I saw were homophobic.

Then JJ started in on me. I could care less, but if sexual talk is banned, he should be out of there.

Kevin said...

73 pitches through 3...

Beckett being Dice-K

Benjamin said...

:(

L-girl said...

But you know, Jere's point wasn't that anyone in the chat room was out of line. It was that *the host* made a sexist comment about me on air.

I didn't even hear it and he MORE than apologized for it, but it kind of negates everything she's saying.

redsock said...

ask girardi if the team can have ice cream now?

redsock said...

i don't think it was on the air. i think it was in chat.

nixon33 said...

Burnett fucking dealing. ugh

redsock said...

In 3 innings, Burnett has thrown 1 more pitch than Becklett did in his 1st inning.

redsock said...

GDGD has Beckett facing Dumbo.

redsock said...

McCarver must be in heaven.

Kevin said...

Throw some fucking strikes...

nixon33 said...

Laugher.

Kevin said...

I hate this game.

nixon33 said...

Way to to show up big today Beckett, you motherfucker.

redsock said...

They got 6 runs in 4 innings.

We have 6 innings of hitting to go.

More than doable.

redsock said...

Wonder what movie Beckett watched before this game?

Kevin said...

Nice at-bat there.

Kevin said...

Crappy at-bat there

redsock said...

half this motherfucker, werd.

Kevin said...

Alright, do not squander this Drew.

Kevin said...

I like where this is going.

Bay, be Manny.

Again.

redsock said...

scary to take that shit.

let's go bay. thunder!

nixon33 said...

COME ON TURN THIS INTO A GAME AGAIN>

Kevin said...

I'll take that.

redsock said...

Doctor, if you please.

redsock said...

weak rx there

Kevin said...

Meh

redsock said...

oh god, tek.

so it's 6-1 after 4.

Kevin said...

CAPTAIN CLUTCH!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

AHAHHAHAHHAHAAHAHHHAHA

Benjamin said...

Oh hey.

nixon33 said...

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

redsock said...

i was set to post "prove me wrong" but he drilled the first pitch!

redsock said...

I SAID "DOABLE"

Jake of All Trades said...

Woooo! (As I emerge from lurking. Hi, gang...)

Kevin said...

Yankees Suck chant goes up

redsock said...

"Yankees Suck chant goes up"


Truth will out.

Kevin said...

Alright, whoever the hell is pitching the next inning, keep it close.

tim said...

just got in from throwing out trees at the dump, and seeing the tek grand dong made me just about dump in my pants. WOW - this is DO ABLE!

tim said...

5 runs on 4 hits, lawlz

redsock said...

Looks like MDC next inning.

Kevin said...

Two quick outs.

Ish said...

Tim McCarver thinks if the score was 6-0 Beckett wouldn't have started the fifth. But since it's 6-5, Beckett's "being rewarded" and is being stuck with so he can possibly get the win.

Anytime Tim McCarver wants to run for the governor of Arkansas I'll stand behind him.

Kevin said...

Alright, more runs please?

redsock said...

short and sweet

now back on attack!

redsock said...

The load in Tim's pants makes more sense than McCarver.

Kevin said...

LANDSLIDE LYNDON!!!

redsock said...

DREAMBOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Benjamin said...

Yay

nixon33 said...

ELWJGY!!!!!!!!!!!!

nixon33 said...

ELIWJGY!!!!!

tim said...

Yeah, he's being rewarded. Nothing to do with the fact that they used 6 relievers yesterday night or anything.

tim said...

OK I don't get the game on the TV in the computer room, going to watch it on the big screen. Be back later!

Edward Lee said...

I took the last two innings off to watch the second half of the Valencia-Barcelona soccer match. Did I miss anything exciting?

redsock said...

i like this burnett guy. takes a while to get warmed up, but he's good.

Kevin said...

"Did I miss anything exciting?"

Tek re-discovered his bat speed at a very opportune time.

redsock said...

Good news for Amy!!!

redsock said...

FUCK YEAH!!

redsock said...

Harvey's being quiet, I'll bet!!!

redsock said...

Burnett's Fenway ERA of 0.40 is down the shitter.

Kevin said...

Nice one, Papi.

Edward Lee said...

Kevin, I think 'Tek's been doing okay all year from what I've seen. He's not going to recover his 2003 form, but he's certainly been making good contact in most of the games I've seen.

redsock said...

good for our pen:
mdc threw 8 pitches last night
bot 17
ramirez 14

for nyy
coke 26
marte 26
rivera 30

Kevin said...

Ouch.

redsock said...

12 GAMES!

redsock said...

More salami pls

Ish said...

Let's try this again, J.D.

nixon33 said...

COME ON DREW!

redsock said...

9 of last 12 sox have reached against burnett

Kevin said...

Dammit.

Kevin said...

Can he ever NOT hit into a DP?

Edward Lee said...

JD was safe.

Ish said...

Or let's just do the same shit we've been doing.

nixon33 said...

FUCK YOU JD

Jake of All Trades said...

Teixeira really looks like a Yankee in that slow motion jabbering replay.

Kevin said...

LEAD!

Ish said...

Thunder Bay!!!!

redsock said...

VIVA CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!!


I like this game.

Edward Lee said...

O CANADA

nixon33 said...

BAY SHOLD BE BATTING 5th. NO QUESTION ABOUT IT. FUCK LRLRLR

redsock said...

Maybe McMoron was right! :>)

nixon33 said...

what did McMoron Say. I missed it?

redsock said...

They got 6 runs in 4 innings.
We have 6 innings of hitting to go.
More than doable.
Sat Apr 25, 05:28:00 PM
****

In 2 innings, we get 8!

Kevin said...

Beckett still in?

Holy shit.

redsock said...

ish quoted it up a bit.

redsock said...

drama queen.

redsock said...

tito rolling the dice with beckett

nixon33 said...

I like beckett sacking up here.

redsock said...

mdc ready -

nixon33 said...

Come on Beckett

redsock said...

cockknocker

Kevin said...

FUCK

nixon33 said...

FUCK ME. I thought he'd at least get a couple of outs.
Shizer.

redsock said...

tito gambled and lost.

still tied.

and our pen is in far better shape

Jake of All Trades said...

Somewhere Grady Little is laughing.

redsock said...

So who thought both starters would give up 8 runs?

Kevin said...

We are not going to fucking lose this game after that kind of comeback.

redsock said...

1 doosh down, 2 to go

nixon33 said...

One more.

redsock said...

fuck ther ump

Kevin said...

Okay...let's get that lead back.

nixon33 said...

Tito: "Had I known that the 'Good' MDC was gonna show up that inning, I would have gone to him right away".

Kevin said...

Lyndon having a nice game.

Edward Lee said...

Pretty sure Pedroia's getting the intentional unintentional walk here.

redsock said...

load 'em for flo?

bring it on.

redsock said...

looks more like veras can't find the zone at all.

Kevin said...

Loaded again.

Papi, get it done.

nixon33 said...

Ortiz, rally killer? The good kind, I mean.

Edward Lee said...

Well, yes, but they didn't look like they were going to give Pedroia anything on the inner 97% of the plate.

redsock said...

tiz popped to left last night against coke.

Edward Lee said...

A bunt to 3rd would be super awesome here.

nixon33 said...

JUST GET IT IN THE AIR

nixon33 said...

WTF?

redsock said...

WTF FY????????????????

Kevin said...

Well, it's a lead.

nixon33 said...

STUPID STUPID STUPID BASERUNNING. WTF??????

nixon33 said...

WITH YOUK UP NEXT. YOU STUPID CUNT.

Edward Lee said...

Youk just got robbed of two RBI.

redsock said...

did he think there was 2 outs already?

idiotic.

redsock said...

no he did not think there were 2 outs. he went as if tagging.

moron.

redsock said...

yanks blow 6-run lead
red sox blow 2-run lead

***

yeah 2 runs -- what a collapse.
nice work, fox

Edward Lee said...

Did you know that Angel Berroa was AL ROY in 1973? Me neither.

redsock said...

At age -5!

nixon33 said...

FUCK.

Kevin said...

Give me a break.

nixon33 said...

DP PLEASE

tim said...

Fuckin' rain, fuckin' up my satellite. Fuck.

nixon33 said...

COME ON MDC.

nixon33 said...

NICE. ONE FUCKING MORE.

Kevin said...

98.6 on that fastball.

Nasty.

Edward Lee said...

Wow. I was sure that pitch was going to end up dropping softly into right field for a double.

Kevin said...

Good Oki or shitty Oki?

nixon33 said...

ONE MORE STRIKE

Kevin said...

FUCK NO

nixon33 said...

YOU GOTTAB BE FUCKING KIDDING ME.

Kevin said...

Why are we walking this jackass?

nixon33 said...

SHIT WE WOULD HAVE BEEN OUT OF IT.

Jake of All Trades said...

Ouch

Kevin said...

Escape.

SCORE RUNS

nixon33 said...

LETS GET THE FUCKING RUN BACK RIGHT AWAY

redsock said...

redsock said...

johngoldfine said...

He was saving up for that.

Jake of All Trades said...

This game is insane.

redsock said...

ALBALADONGO!

redsock said...

I like how these guys are rising to my challenges.

nixon33 said...

THIS GAME IS CRAZY

Edward Lee said...

For the sabermetrically inclined, both Burnett and Albaladejo have WPAs less than -0.5. Hilarious.

Kevin said...

I'd like to see Ram-Ram warming.

redsock said...

Battle of the Ramirezes coming up.

Kevin said...

Fuck football, the NFL draft has NOTHING on this.
