G57: Rangers 6, Red Sox 3

Rangers - 112 010 100 - 6 12  1
Red Sox - 002 100 000 - 3 4 0
Matsuzaka did not walk a batter, but other than that, it was yet another poor outing: 5-10-5-0-8, 102.

Ten of his 27 batters reached base. Nelson Cruz doubled, tripled and homered, Michael Young singled and homered, and David Murphy singled twice and doubled.

Dice recorded his third 1-2-3 inning of the season, though. He has set down the opposing team in only three of the 26 complete innings he has pitched this year. His other two blemish-free frames were also against the Rangers, back on May 22.

The Red Sox hits: Youkilis's double in the first; Kotsay's single in the third; Kotsay's home run in the fourth; and Ortiz's single in the sixth. In the third, Boston took advantage of a two-base error by Ian Kinsler and three walks from Padilla to score twice.

After Kotsay's solo dong in the fourth, only two Red Sox reached base.

The Yankees scored three times in the eighth to beat Tampa 4-3 and moved back into first place -- by 0.5.

***

Vicente Padilla (5.57, 82 ERA+) / Daisuke Matsuzaka (7.17, 67 ERA+)

MLB.com:
Padilla made his first start since May 16 on Tuesday against the Yankees ... [He] allowed seven earned runs [and seven hits, four walks and two hit batters] in just 3.2 innings. ... He had won his final two starts before going on the disabled list with a strained right shoulder. ...

Matsuzaka hasn't pitched six innings in any of his five starts. ...

L-girl said...

Bastardo should get together with Angel Pagan.

L-girl said...

I'd better listen without threading today. Lots of work here.

s1c said...

it is on

redsock said...

first batter full count, what a surprise.

and a K!

tim said...

I'm alive (and threading)!

s1c said...

Ok, so I am looking at gameday and I see that Kinsler loves to face the cutter and hates sliders, so what does dice-k throw, 4 cutters!!!

Makes you wonder how accurate the mlb.com scouting reports are.

tim said...

Fuck.

meuniermr said...

fuck it

L-girl said...

Young continues to be annoying.

tim said...

Dice-K continues to throw 5+ pitches per batter.

Ish said...

Down by way of the Dice-K.

Benjamin said...

Ok, so I am looking at gameday and I see that Kinsler loves to face the cutter and hates sliders

According to my GDGD, Young likes to face "premium", and Daisuke definitely didn't throw him any premium pitches.

s1c said...

Runs

tim said...

3 K, good start. Except for the, you know...dong.

meuniermr said...

It would have been a good inning if Young had not timed that pitch.

redsock said...

According to my GDGD, Young likes to face "premium",

And the field is about to "collapse".

s1c said...


According to my GDGD, Young likes to face "premium", and Daisuke definitely didn't throw him any premium pitches


Ok, so I sprung for the extra $5 way back when.

s1c said...

Ok, redsock, I am sure you have the premium, just click on it and see if you are asked to sign in.

redsock said...

When I started this post, I had "Jose Padilla" typed in until I went to get his ERA+!

tim said...

This Padilla fellow looks hungover.

andy said...

I am praying for a brawl. I hope Papi gets suspended.

andy said...

Do you get premium GDGD with MLB.tv premium?

Ish said...

Do we have sweat?

Just about! TRUPEDDDDDD.

L-girl said...

sweat-powered half dong!

s1c said...

Crap, I thought that might get out of the park.

Ish said...

Castig says ten minutes ago it was a home run.

...

andy said...

Damn the wind

tim said...

Sweaty double. Knock him in, Bay!

L-girl said...

Please note the date. L gets Andy's sarcasm.

s1c said...

andy, click on premium and see what it says to do, I just have the basic plus I paid like an extra $5 bucks at the beginning of the season.

tim said...

OW.

s1c said...

Fragging kidding me

andy said...

Which one L?

redsock said...

Yook Being Lugo

Ish said...

Sunday, June 7th, Year of our Lord 2000 and 9.


Sometimes the sweat can get in the way of brain power.

meuniermr said...

WTF? Wake up Youk!

redsock said...

Hey, I do have that Premium shit!
I thought that was an extra $20.

Bonus: no ads by the box score!

andy said...

I clicked on Premium and I got Premium. What am I looking for now?

redsock said...

i am still confused re andy and the date.

andy said...

OUR lord?

Benjamin said...

Yook Being Lugo

Lugo wouldn't have reached second base in the first place.

redsock said...

why can't we get hitters like that?

Benjamin said...

OUR lord?

Not ours. Not Youk's.

andy said...

I think she thinks I was being sarcastic at some point. I am not sure which comment I was being sarcastic. I am not as sensitive to my own sarcasm.

tim said...

Well, at least these hits aren't running up the pitch count. Just settin' up the triple play.

andy said...

How awesome would it be if Dice could pitch hitters into hitting fast one bounce shots to the 3rd baseman.

andy said...

Dice is dealing one of his games.

Ish said...

An english teacher of mine back in high school would sarcastically say the date the way I just did when someone asked him the date. I'm just passing it along with the same amount of sarcasm.

So I note the date L reads sarcasm and nobody reads my sarcasm. Or maybe I'm not reading everybody else's sarcasm! Ell oh Ell.

Ish said...

Eck: "How would you like to be pitching coach with Dice-K out there? Your one day of being the pitching coach and you get Dice-K."

s1c said...

See Sock, I told you that you had it!!! You only have to pay extra if you don't get the tv (i think) which I don't buy, since I am in the NESN black out area.

andy said...

Classic for this blog, we are all so clever that we out clever ourselves all the time. This is where we are now.

redsock said...

3-2 count on only 2 of first 8 batters! economy!

tim said...

Omar Vizquel? Isn't he like 100 years old?

tim said...

Why the fuck was that throw cut off....argh

andy said...

Bay did not throw that ball like a canadien, or did he?

tim said...

Let me revise that comment. What the FUCK, Bay?!

meuniermr said...

Go away old man..

L-girl said...

"I think she thinks I was being sarcastic at some point. I am not sure which comment I was being sarcastic. I am not as sensitive to my own sarcasm."

"I am praying for a brawl. I hope Papi gets suspended."

Benjamin said...

Omar Vizquel? Isn't he like 100 years old?

Only half that.

L-girl said...

Omar Vizquel? I thought I heard wrong. The man must be 75 years old.

L-girl said...

Ha ha, Tim and I thinking exactly alike minus 25 years.

andy said...

Oh shit I totally forgot I said that. Yeah, sarcasm. This day in our lords year is marked in my google calendar.

redsock said...

What the fuck is wrong with Varitek? He makes Beckett and Lester look good, but he makes Dice look bad. Does Tek hate Asians?

redsock said...

I was going to post "Wow, Vizquel is still alive!", but did not. I guess I should have.

redsock said...

Bay has one plate appearance and a walk, but he has seen six balls!

meuniermr said...

Padilla's a headhunter?

Ish said...

The way Padilla looks you'd think it was 115° outside at Fenway.

s1c said...

Papi's hot zone looks like a small l. Pure ugliness.

redsock said...

HAWK!

Ish said...

Fenway Hawk makes an appearance. Crowd loves it.

Ish said...

I almost got run into by a Hawk in the Boston Common. It swooped down just inches from my head and snatched up a pigeon.

s1c said...

It is a beautiful Hawk, so why shouldn't the crowd love it.

tim said...

Asian Hater up.

L-girl said...

Hawks are so cool. We're lucky to see them.

tim said...

HORRIBLÊ!

L-girl said...

that's 2 runners caught or picked off, ugh

Ish said...

I love watching them fly. They just glide majestically throughout the air. They are a model of efficiency and aerodynamics.

meuniermr said...

Better not run anymore this game.

s1c said...

And just like last night, after 2 innings Padilla faces the minimum.

L-girl said...

"I was going to post "Wow, Vizquel is still alive!", but did not. I guess I should have."

I was going to say "I didn't know Vizquel was still alive!"

tim said...

Heh, love the ancient-ness of Vizquel.

L-girl said...

I should NOT be threading.

L-girl said...

Ish, me too, I have a real thing for birds of prey. Wild canines, too.

s1c said...

I wonder how many times this year that Daisuke got ahead 2-0 only to go to a full count.

tim said...

Fucking Young. This creep can roll.

redsock said...

Dice has pitched 21 full innings this year. # of 1-2-3 innings?

Only 2 -- both against Texas on May 22 (1st and 3rd)

tim said...

Yes! Just saw that both softball games this week are at the fenced parks (a.k.a. dongs)! And bithday thursday! And tournament friday! And family birthday party saturday! This is gonna be a good week.

redsock said...

B. Donkey up

s1c said...

I freaking hope there is action in the pen. Oh, crap.

L-girl said...

crap crap crap

tim said...

Fuc-K Matsushitter.

L-girl said...

Masterson is up.

nick said...

in play, fucknut(s)

L-girl said...

"And family birthday party saturday!"

boooooooo

;)

tim said...

We aren't going to win this game on defense. Or baserunning.

AKA - Dongs Please.

redsock said...

horrific read by lbj on that one.

tim said...

Boooooooo indeed. I would try to sneak out to your place after but I've gotta drive family to the airport at like 5am on Sunday. Happy Birthday to me indeed.

redsock said...

p c ... r

meuniermr said...

At least it's still early in the game.

redsock said...

TBR: 001 0
MFY: 001

s1c said...

Ok, when Smoltz is ready its Dice K to Pawtucket and Smoltzie in the rotation.

Ish said...

Is J.D. talking about his shoulder or his car?

redsock said...

no bunts, asshole

s1c said...

WTF, Tito better not be sacrificing.

Zenslinger said...

I find myself looking back to meuniermr's initial comment to this thread and find myself thinking, "Yeah, hope so." Seeing as a slugfest implies a lot of hits and runs for both teams.

tim said...

Bring us within 1, dustin!

tim said...

Tie game please, dreamboat!

redsock said...

OMG!

Charlie Moore goes fishing with Lynyrd Skynyrd!

Someone DVD-R that for L!

L-girl said...

That's my boy!!!

redsock said...

Hey Omar you gotta tag the runner to get an out! IDIOT!!

meuniermr said...

LL Cool Double.

tim said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

andy said...

That was funny. He stole second.

L-girl said...

"Charlie Moore goes fishing with Lynyrd Skynyrd!

Someone DVD-R that for L!"

TV FROM HELL!!!

tim said...

Sweat power please!

s1c said...

Too late I already have it set to record, expect dvd shortly!!!

tim said...

Also to atone for my no-show this saturday we should have a BBQ before one of the August mid-week Red Sox games in T.O. - Yeah I just invited myself over to Chez L-Sock.

redsock said...

OMG!

now they callit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

andy said...

David Wells is saying he leaned.

L-girl said...

So Allan, do you approve of this call? The one you're always asking for, for other teams...

L-girl said...

No bbqs at our house in August!

s1c said...

No harm, no foul!!!

L-girl said...

"Too late I already have it set to record, expect dvd shortly!!!"

I'm changing my address!

redsock said...

he leaned for sure.

maybe the ump thinks there is a difference between leaning into it and just standing there?

correct call, but shit, do it all the time it comes up!

redsock said...

speaking of just standing there ........

sigh

L-girl said...

When I asked that q, I hadn't seen your OMG!!! post above.

I'm working and should NOT be threading!

s1c said...

Fragging squander

meuniermr said...

Good start to getting the bats going again.

tim said...

I love being home and having a BBQ with a line of sight to the game.

redsock said...

If Dice goes 9, Texas will set the every inning record.

tim said...

If Dice goes 9 

Going to break his personal pitch count record he set in highschool??

redsock said...

Also to atone for my no-show this saturday we should have a BBQ before one of the August mid-week Red Sox games in T.O. - Yeah I just invited myself over to Chez L-Sock.

We are going to the game on the 18th...

redsock said...

holy fuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dfon "catch of the year"

slides int he dirt for 20 feet

L-girl said...

that's my boy!

Ish said...

WOW Mr. Lyndon stirring up some dust and finds a baseball!

tim said...

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

and even more amazing:

dice goes 1-2-3!!!

tim said...

I have nothing to do from Aug 11 to Sept 11...so I'll try and head to 1 or 2 of them.

Tickets should be cheaper by then as the Jays will be 14 1/2 out.

redsock said...

holy jesus - i need a replay of that!

L - check gameday in an inning or so, should be a clip

tim said...

Love how on this sports betting site, red sox are down by 2 and still favored. Hell, they were even when it was 4-0 rangers.

L-girl said...

Why am I always at work listening to the radio when LBJ does these cool things?

L-girl said...

"L - check gameday in an inning or so, should be a clip"

can't do that at work

redsock said...

KOTSAY HEY!

tim said...

Not CAUGHT!

s1c said...

Kotsie!!!

L-girl said...

kotsay dong?! cool!

redsock said...

TBR: 001 00
MFY: 001 00

redsock said...

"result-based business"

redsock said...

that foul pop to left was very clearly in dirt in fair territory!

blind ump!

redsock said...

TB 3-1

redsock said...

masturbate up again

meuniermr said...

Why so many WP's, ARRGH!

s1c said...

BH brings in the latest town weekly, b-fly is in two articles. A budding star in the making!!!

L-girl said...

cool. are you bringing b-fly to jos1?

Ish said...

NESN showed Kotsay and Baldy playing rock-paper-scissors to see who goes to CF and who goes to RF!

Ish said...

Well, I'd assume that's why they were playing rock-paper-scissors.

s1c said...

Yes B-fly and I (bh is so not a fan).

redsock said...

5.2-10-5-0-8, 102

redsock said...

GDGD: LBJ out with injured neck/shoulder

s1c said...

Ump either blew that call or that was a heck of a block of the plate by tek.

L-girl said...

"Yes B-fly and I (bh is so not a fan)."

Several ppl are bringing offspring, and at least one bringing a parental unit.

L-girl said...

Radio made it sound like a great Tek play.

redsock said...

right shoulder strain for lyndon

..

yeah, looked like it had to be late. we'll check the replay

redsock said...

hmmm, that kinda looks like no tag at all.

Amy said...

Hi, everyone. Been catching some of the game on radio. Enough to know that DiceK is being DiceK and that LBJ made a great catch but left the game injured.

DAMN.

s1c said...

Was a very good block by Tek and was bang bang.

redsock said...

hell of a block, but looked like a swipe tag did not get him. if it did get him, it may have been .001 seconds before omar's hand hit the dish.

redsock said...

jeemer up

Amy said...

Papi!

s1c said...

Papi!!!

redsock said...

6 game hit streak for flo

Amy said...

Laura, funny you should mention people bringing offspring. Are there any tickets left? My daughter has expressed an interest in going to the game.

Amy said...

Oh, Papi...WHY?

s1c said...

it may have been .001 seconds

Hence the use of the words bang bang

I am of the opinion on bang bang plays no matter what the Ump calls, you don't beat up the ump.

Fragging kidding me!

redsock said...

wtf papi?

jesus christ.

tim said...

WHAT THE FUCK RED SOX????

3 FUCKING INNINGS ENDED DUE TO IDIOT BASERUNNING!

L-girl said...

Amy, let's talk off-thread sometime, I'm super busy at work.

Amy said...

Will do, Laura.

redsock said...

A K for Hideki NoFacts!

s1c said...

More importantly, it was before he reached a full count.

redsock said...

wtf - wally signing autographs?

s1c said...

well a single a way now.

redsock said...

needs a single.

tim said...

This is the part of the show where Orsillo peaks in stoned-ness, and they show Wally between pitches while Don giggles for 15 minutes.

Fuck sakes. Looking for a great comeback today! Cruz a single away from the cycle.

Amy said...

Our batters have to get hits and not get thrown out...

redsock said...

Yanks still losing 3-1 in bot 8th -- come on bats!

tek
kotsay
green

redsock said...

2nd straigth CG for Halladay: 9-7-0-0-6, 97
In 2:09!
His 10th win...

Amy said...

Why can't we trade DiceK for Halladay? :)

Amy said...

SCORE RUNS

redsock said...

cruz up 5th for tex in the 9th. may not get his shot at the cycle.

Amy said...

Let's hope not.

redsock said...

yanks tie it at 3-3 in the 8th.

redsock said...

bot up ... so cruz should bat .. :<(

meuniermr said...

This Texas team looks like it may have finally made the jump.
