G26: Red Sox 6, Yankees 4

Red Sox - 111 100 200 - 6 11  0
Yankees - 000 030 010 - 4 9 2
The Red Sox constructed a picket fence against Hughes (4-7-4-4-2, 94) and Jason Bay added a two-run dong off the left field foul pole against Alfredo Aceves (4.1-4-2-2-7, 70) in the seventh. Jonathan Papelbon recorded five outs for the save. (The game was delayed more than two hours and did not start until 9:23.)

Hughes walked Dustin Pedroia in the first and David Ortiz hit the first of two doubles to right field; Pedroia scored on a passed ball. Mike Lowell led off the second with a first-pitch homer to left, his sixth of the year. In the third, Lowell's single brought home J.D. Drew. In the fourth, Ortiz's second double scored Jacoby Ellsbury, who had hit a ground rule double to left.

Lester (7-6-3-2-10, 111) cruised through four innings, having struck out the side for the first time in his career in the first. He fanned two in the second and one each in the third and fourth. His 10 Ks matched a career high. In the fifth, he allowed back-to-back home runs -- on consecutive pitches -- to Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira. That cut Boston's lead to 4-3. Teixeira homered against off Ramon Ramirez, ending Ram's scoreless streak at 14.1 innings.

The Yankees loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth against Bot, but -- what do you know? -- Robbie Cano struck out to end the game.

The Blue Jays lost to Cleveland 9-7 in 12, so Boston is only 1 GB. The Yankees stayed 3.5 GB.

***

Jon Lester (5.40, 94 ERA+) / Philip Hughes (0.00)

Eight days ago, Boston finished a three-game sweep of New York, beating them at Fenway Park by scores of 5-4 (in 11 innings), 16-11 and 4-1.

The Red Sox visit Yankee Stadium III for the first time tonight and begin a two-game set. And the Yankees are praying:

(Rain is in the forecast, however.)

A few Sox talked about seeing the new stadium:

David Ortiz:
I can't wait to get there. ... [I]t seems like it's going to be another hitting park, from what I see. I'm not mad about that.
Dustin Pedroia:
I heard it's like a resort.
Julio Lugo:
I didn't like the old one very much. I didn't see the ball there very well.
That joke just writes itself, doesn't it?

Lester makes his sixth start of the year. For Hughes, it's his second start. Last Tuesday, he went 6-2-0-2-6 against the Tigers. It's also his second appearance against the Red Sox. In the first one (April 13, 2008), he was pounded for six hits and seven runs in two innings.

Reliever Damaso Marte, who had not pitched since the Boston series, was put on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis and weakness in his pitching arm. Anthony Claggett -- who made his major league debut by allowing eight runs in 1.2 innings -- is up from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (AAA). ... The Yankees have signed Casey Fossum to a minor league contract.

Exactly, Allan. He could give Papelbon a tip or two. The cool approach is so superior.I loved it when Pedro struck out the side and just turned and walked back to the dugout, cool as a cucumber. I mean, he's in the zone but he's not going around killing it Mirabelli style or anything.

Jere said...

Rem recovering fully from his earlier pneumonia

Benjamin said...

Ish said...

I'd think Pneumonia would be complicated enough.

Benjamin said...

It takes two to cover for Remy? And still no word on what is wrong with Jerry?

Complications from pneumonia a couple months ago.

redsock said...

decisions for joba:

start
relieve
take over his mom's meth lab

?

Jere said...

Eck: "spinball"

Ish said...

Allan she's using a public defender. You'd think Joba'd get her a lawyer!

redsock said...

steve phillips says he wanted joba in rotation to begin the year -- saying he KNEW he's be like clemens in the prime of his career.

oh my god

Benjamin said...

Shit.

Kevin said...

Meh

Jere said...

good job Youk, we need to get 5 in here.

Drew will dong off Hughes though. Second deck.

Ish said...

I wonder if Joba needs someone to rub his balls before he starts.

Jere said...

Joba and mom aren't close.

Jere said...

Joba: Mom, they caught me with Crown Royal in the car.

Moma: Lightweight!

Amy said...

Thanks for the explanation on Remy. I was actually quite worried about him. He looked ill.

redsock said...

joba more close to rollo polio.

drew liner did not get caught in wind stream

Benjamin said...

That dropped Youk below .400.

Benjamin said...

Hahah.

Ish said...

Bahahahaha nice play Jeets.

redsock said...

nice play jetes

Benjamin said...

Jeter pretends.

redsock said...

and oral blowing jeter for his range ..........

Ish said...

I had a feeling Joba's not close with his mother. You look at his mother and his father and it's like night and day. We know where he gets drunk driving and belligerence from!

redsock said...

and phillips polishing molina's nuts on that ball in the dirt.

i may puke

Benjamin said...

DR!

Amy said...

YES!! I love the doctor!

Kevin said...

Doctor!

redsock said...

PHIL THE PHRANCHISE!

Jere said...

Is this Hughes or Kennedy, I forgot

redsock said...

picket fence

111

Amy said...

That was pathetic, Tek. Sort of how I hit them in softball.

Jere said...

Dennis Hopper's our manager, we're runnin' the picket fence on 'em.

Jere said...

The picket fence is perfect for a rain game--no big, time-wasting innings, but just enough each time to make it get more and more comfy.

westcoastsox said...

I'm in the middle of work and putting the kids to bed, but just wanted everyone to know I was thinking about them, especially during the passed ball (I'm sure someone said PASSEDABALLA - I sure did), and I'm sure someone else has commented, come on, it's time to get a single run every evening and give Redsock his perfect box score! Back to checking on the score furtively on my phone while doing other things...

Benjamin said...

KKKKKK

Kevin said...

Sit

redsock said...

shulman ripping mfy for high prices and the bullshit "refund" announcement they made.

Ish said...

You should see Eck's reading glasses! I mean, I know he's an older dude but still. I sort of feel sad a little bit.

Jere said...

Haha! Roberts loved the old YS because he "did some celebrating" there...

redsock said...

wait - jetes can pull the ball?

Jere said...

dien bien PHU

Amy said...

Hi, WCSox! Always good to have you pop in. You sure have this place down!

redsock said...

all 9 innings hasn't happen in 109 years -- i think i'd rather have the sox play 27 innings one day -- maybe a west coast game that sets an innings record and ends at 6 AM!

Benjamin said...

Why does Teixeira make kissy movements with his lips when he's waiting for the pitch to arrive?

SoSock said...

Cool!
I had a LL practice then a short meeting after and STILL get to see most of the game.
I know the late hours will suck for a lot of you, but it suits me fine tonight.
(he says as the 2 glasses of wine start to make his eyelids heavy already)

Jere said...

Eck and Dave talkin' shop while DO wishes he knew which hand to wear his glove on.

redsock said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO

for the Tush Era!

Benjamin said...

48 pitches through three. (78 for Hughes.)

redsock said...

PC:

Lester: 15-20-13 = 48
Hughes: 28-21-29 = 78

SoSock said...

Tush Era - :)

Benjamin said...

Haha

Jere said...

hahaha

redsock said...

TWO HANDS -- asshat!

Amy said...

I know my eyes are closing even without any wine or LL practice.

Ish said...

The only thing that bugs me is Roberts' voice sounds like Michael Kay.

SoSock said...

hahahahahahahaha!

E-2

Oh Jeez, now they blame it on the new park.

BS ALERT!

Benjamin said...

Haha

redsock said...

nice slide johnny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

Jacoby > Damon

A Conformer said...

Shit, that would've been an inside the park dong if it stayed in.

SoSock said...

Damn - at least a triple!
Maybe a ITPHR if it stays in.

Amy said...

LBJ!

Benjamin said...

for the Tush Era!

Yep.

Amy said...

That was closer than I would have expected.

SoSock said...

OUCH!

redsock said...

FUCK - horriblr ankiel clip -- head first into wall. off on strecher

Benjamin said...

Papi!

redsock said...

FLO "YANKS SUCKX"

Amy said...

Papi!!

Jere said...

1111!

SoSock said...

PAPIIIIIIIIII !!!

Jere said...

We've Black Flagged 'em!

A Conformer said...

Papi with the Deja Vu 2B. And still a run an inning (is this bad luck? Should I treat it as a no hitter situation?)

Kevin said...

Papi!

So, we're going to try to score in all nine innings?

redsock said...

THE BARS!

my war -- you're one of THEM!!!

Jere said...

Roberts might slightly sound like Kay, but the tone (and of course, arrogance) of Kay isn't there at all.

Amy said...

Are those Youks at Yankee Stadium?

Ish said...

Right, Jere. If you were to have both of them just say "uhhhhhhhh" they'd sound similar.

Jere said...

hey, if this is a rain-shortened game, we could see

11111
00000

Ish said...

Those have got to be Yooooks.

Jere said...

Amy--it's the two-strike cheer, but for Mussina they'd say "Mooose" instead of just cheering--so they're doing Huuuughes now.

redsock said...

espn talking about yook/fy/lyndon as young farm players

all they can come up with for mfy are jetes and horseface - 10-12 years ago!

now talking 2004!!!!

Jere said...

Not saying there aren't Sox fans representin' in NY though!

Ish said...

Youk winces. Oblique is what Don says. Sore last couple weeks apparently.

Jere said...

That's what I meant earlier when I said it was the "Hoose call"

Benjamin said...

Sore last couple weeks apparently.

Too many HBPs.

Aceves up in the pen.

redsock said...

aceves up in mfy pen

Ish said...

1's are intact!

Benjamin said...

94 pitches through four for Hughes.

Jere said...

we've got two games in the 12th now.

SoSock said...

Picket Fences - more than just a TV show

Benjamin said...

Games with runs in every inning are even rarer than perfect games.

redsock said...

i looked at every linescore from 1953 on sunday. i saw one game with:

111 11

go sox!

Amy said...

Youk, Moose, Hughes, Boos. Who could tell? How confusing!

redsock said...

not close, shithead fans!

Ish said...

Greinke another complete game shutout.

6-0, 0.40 ERA!!

Jere said...

lots o room out there Eck, no need for uh-oh. (Also, we're not "every other team," so you can stop saying anything during the play-by-play guy's call.)

Amy said...

Hmm, so does this mean we are hoping NOT to get multiple runs in an inning? That would bother me.

Jere said...

Listen for the ooooo next time HUghes gets two strikes. It's all bleachers though--the box seats don't know how to do that shit--in fact, listen for the "box seats suck" chant when they don't do it....

Ish said...

Grienke's ERA+ is 941.

Benjamin said...

Hmm, so does this mean we are hoping NOT to get multiple runs in an inning?

No, as many as possible, in all innings.

Benjamin said...

Sit.

SoSock said...

I'm for 1 per inning, as long as we keep the donuts on the bottom!

Kevin said...

Sit

KKKKKKK

Jere said...

"No, as many as possible, in all innings."

Agreed--except, do it quick! And if you get to like 10, stop, because none of it counts if this doesn't go five.

redsock said...

orel talking about cano being in charge of time and space as a hitter -- then a K!!!!


MANNY DONG!!!!

SoSock said...

Manny - leaving the house!

Jere said...

Pretty cool linescore in that Tor game. Now 9-6 Cleve in the 12th

redsock said...

call the strike asshump

Benjamin said...

Getting squeezed.

Ish said...

Eck: That pitch might have been inside... it was a little inside - Where's Amica? I don't know!

SoSock said...

Shit - a 3 ball, 3 strike walk

Jere said...

If Eck is bitching about no Amica ON AIR, you know he's sittin there every other night with TC yelling at the screen for it like the rest of us.

Benjamin said...

Makeup strikes.

Benjamin said...

"Ball" 6 against Posada.

Jere said...

The Binary code continues. Like real life, we're 1s and they're zeros.

redsock said...

jays have 1 - 9-7 in 12th

Benjamin said...

I forgot that this was Meals's strikezone.

Benjamin said...

Hughes gone.

Jere said...

Jays have answered every time Cleve has scored--and scored in two other innings. But trail by 2.

redsock said...

eat it, ci!

Benjamin said...

Jeter can't range to his right anymore either. It's like he shouldn't be playing SS at all.

Amy said...

Uh oh, where is our one run?

Benjamin said...

Jays lose.

Jere said...

Are Jeter and A-Rod gonna switch already?

Amy said...

Some Tek love from the anncrs.

Benjamin said...

Francona looks fine with glasses. I don't know why he refused to wear them for years.

redsock said...

ei just cut espn off.

nice

Benjamin said...

Jason Varitek
Loves to face: Premium
Hates to face: Premium

redsock said...

fuckers forcing me to hear kay

Benjamin said...

Boo, no run.

Kevin said...

We shall not be scoring in every inning tonight...

Amy said...

Let's get the official game in. Is there more rain coming?

A Conformer said...

OK, there that goes. now I'm rooting for 9 runs next inning.

redsock said...

if i gotta listen to these cockmonkeys on yes, i want lester to K every batter on 3 pitches and for sox to win 127-0.

redsock said...

good to know they still do day-o at the new toilet

Benjamin said...

Almost a dp.

Jere said...

Eck: throws him a low piece of salad.

Don: definitely salad

Jere said...

Part of me is very pissed we didn't get two. Part of me is glad he didn't throw it into CF like pitchers seem to do half the time on that play.

But all of me is pissed that Molina got a hit

Ish said...

I don't see anymore rain for New York tonight.

redsock said...

singleton bitching about a possible balk.

oh fuck you, with horseface on the staff

SoSock said...

Get a Room!

Benjamin said...

Sit

Kevin said...

Sit

Benjamin said...

Gone

redsock said...

you can stick your ass out as far as you like -- a strike is a strike

CI GONE!!!!!!

Jere said...

yeah it's not a ball because you do the knee jerk thing you fucking shitlicker

redsock said...

GIRARDI: no ice cream for you, ump!

Ish said...

Girardi argues balls and strikes instead of just getting Jeter out of there. Gets a swift kick in the ass out of there. Ejectedddddd.

Ish said...

Eck: Amica does not lie!

Benjamin said...

Alas, Girardi ejected. Bleh.

Amy said...

Shit, I hate Damon.

Kevin said...

FUCKER

Benjamin said...

Fucking hell.

Amy said...

Damn, that blown DP looms large now.

Kevin said...

FUCK THE FUCKING FUCKERS

Benjamin said...

Sure wish we'd had that dp.

Ish said...

Roberts getting into the talking-during-the-play thing. Teixiera hits a bomb and Roberts goes "Uh oh!" I think it was him and not Eck.

redsock said...

the greatness of jeter

his ejection = b2b dongs!

amazing.

Benjamin said...

his ejection = b2b dongs!

Girardi was the one who was ejected.

Jere said...

swish'll end this

A Conformer said...

I knew one of those idiots would say that Girardi being ejected "fired up" the MFY. Fucking dull, predictable announcers.

Fucking MFY, too. It's a game, suddenly.

redsock said...

jetes not tossed first?

Benjamin said...

Runs, please.

Kevin said...

Sit

Score Runs

Ish said...

Don recaps the inning as "The Yankees get some stuff done."

Amy said...

OK, insurance runs would be nice.

Or a sudden heavy downpour.

Jere said...

bye toad-raper.

Now more runs off the shitty humpeating Yankee shitpen

Benjamin said...

jetes not tossed first?

Heavens no. He shits golden eggs.

Amy said...

NESN announcers said just Girardi was ejected.

Ish said...

Girardi came out to make sure Jeter didn't get tossed. He stepped between the two but instead of directly Jeter back to the dugout he started arguing balls and strikes and got tossed.

A Conformer said...

OK, insurance runs would be nice.

Or a sudden heavy downpour.
I vote for a downpour of runs. Including two Papi dongs.

redsock said...

gdgd says only girardi, too.
plus it has 5 GES* for jeter


* golden eggs shat

Benjamin said...

He stepped between the two but instead of directly Jeter back to the dugout he started arguing balls and strikes and got tossed.

Didn't look like he was arguing too much before he invaded Meals's personal space. There wasn't much room between Jeter and Meals when he stepped between them.

Ish said...

Let's turn this guy into Fettuccine Alfredo.

redsock said...

this fucktard is wearing #91

moiderize him

Benjamin said...

HAHA

Amy said...

Ha. That'll teach you, Jeter.

Kevin said...

Haha

Jere said...

Lemme guess, YES saying, "you never see that."

redsock said...

jE6ter

Benjamin said...

E6

Jere said...

No Eck, he didn't nonchalant it--he concentrated hard, set himself, and STILL fucked up.

Ish said...

Eck and Roberts both go "Whoa!" when Jeter's "candy hop" goes awry. Or something. They're talking about candy hops.

It sounds like they're bugging me but seriously they're entertaining to listen to.

redsock said...

singleton says "sometimes the play is too easy"

no lie

Ish said...

I bet the YES guys didn't say a word when Jeter bounced that one.

Ish said...

Okay Eck saying uh oh every time there's a fly ball DOES bug me. Trup trup trup.

Benjamin said...

So flyballs can go to RF without going out.

Jere said...

they go to the 14th in Florida

redsock said...

amazing

EI cut off espn feed 20 minutes ago and it has not come back

Amy said...

FY!

Benjamin said...

Hits are good.

Jere said...

he served that up to DP

Benjamin said...

Double or dong would be nice.

A Conformer said...

I predict we will see a large dominican dong.

redsock said...

show 'em where you live, flo

Amy said...

Time for Papi to hit his first HR of the season.

Amy said...

Guess not....

Benjamin said...

Shit
