G58: Red Sox 7, Yankees 0

Yankees - 000 000 000 - 0  2  1
Red Sox - 041 100 10x - 7 9 0

David Ortiz banged a two-run bomb to dead center to put the Sox on the board in the second and Beckett (6-1-0-2-8, 93) cruised along, setting down the Yankees with a breaking ball-heavy arsenal.

Burnett had next to no control (2.2-5-5-5-1, 84) in the steady drizzle, throwing 43 pitches in a lengthy second inning -- J.D. Drew brought home the other two runs with a double high off the Wall -- and 22 more before being yanked in the third.

Nick Green homered over everything down the left field line off Jose Veras to cap the scoring.

Beckett did not allow a hit until Robinson Cano singled in the fourth. Dustin Pedroia ranged far to his left and snared the grounder in short right, but could not make a play. New York's only other hit was Brett Gardner's single past Green's left into left center in the eighth.

Boston is now 6-0 against the Yankees this season. The only other season with a 6-0 start: 1912 -- in which the Sox won the first 14 meetings between the two teams and ended the season series with a 19-2 record.

The two teams are tied atop the East, each with a 34-24 record.

***

A.J. Burnett (4.69, 96 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (4.09, 116 ERA+)

AL East
W L PCT GB
Yankees 34 23 .596 ---
Red Sox 33 24 .579 1.0
Blue Jays 33 27 .550 2.5
Rays 29 30 .492 6.0
Orioles 24 33 .421 10.0
***

In his last four starts (29.2 innings), Beckett has a 0.91 ERA. (Only three of the eight runs he has allowed have been earned.)

David Ortiz had his eyes checked yesterday. A team spokesman said his vision is fine.

Jacoby Ellsbury has a strain of his acromioclavicular (AC) joint in his right shoulder -- but no structural damage. The team will decide this afternoon if he can play tonight.

Patrick said...

I don't like our outfield defense today.

Amy said...

I am glad Beckett is pitching first in this series.

And really glad DiceK is not pitching at all.

Zenslinger said...

SoSH'ers wish Lester was going vs. CC in Game 3 instead of Penny. I'm with them.

I'll tell ya those SoSH'ers are quite an astute group...

redsock said...

The idea that I will have only the YES feed as a viewing option tonight is highly distressing.

L-girl said...

Hasn't happened yet...

L-girl said...

NESN!

redsock said...

NESN WHEW!!!

L-girl said...

I missed the 2-game series - because I was in NY! I'm glad to be settling in to watch this one.

I'm only going to thread a bit, tho. Later all.

redsock said...

swisher = tool

Patrick said...

hurray for ulcer inducing baseball! Let the roller coaster begin.

Benjamin said...

Do it.

Benjamin said...

Eat shit, Jeter.

Patrick said...

Lugo would've bobbled that twice, then thrown it into the sox dugout.

Amy said...

I am ready. Already one out.

Patrick said...

Joe C is oogling over Damon. Kept saying he 'really looks good'.

Zenslinger said...

Beckett throws Teix 5 straight curves?

redsock said...

eck on teix at first -- after giambi "anything is an upgrade"

Amy said...

Love to see ARod make the third out, especially with a pop up.

Patrick said...

Easy as 124.

Kevin said...

Decent first inning.

Glad to see Lugo still not in the lineup.

Zenslinger said...

Let's make things difficult for AJ.

He can be tough first time through the order, with high K's. But we'll git to 'im.

Patrick said...

It's nice TB is fourth right now, so we can concentrate on this rivalry.

Benjamin said...

Burnett always reminds me of Neil Patrick Harris.

L-girl said...

He does look Doogie-ish.

Amy said...

Greek god of walks.

redsock said...

PASSEDBALLA

Amy said...

Posadaball. Or however you guys spell it.

Zenslinger said...

Say it, RS!

Kevin said...

Passedballa!

Zenslinger said...

"PASSEDBALLA"

Yes!

redsock said...

it rolled away back -- jorge giving about 30% on that one -- and said to L "well, you know what i gotta post"

:>)

L-girl said...

"Posadaball."

Hee hee. Amy, you're so cute. :)

Amy said...

Well, I tried. :) Just trying to be one of the guys. Sort of.

Patrick said...

Josh rearin to go.

Kevin said...

Sit

Amy said...

Josh looking like Josh.

redsock said...

AJ BURNETT IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER!!!OMG!!11ONE!

nick said...

Hi all. Emma and I are eating Chinese and watching drizzlyball. Excitement is high! She's decided she likes tuna maki (not chinese, but y'know).

Zenslinger said...

Von! Two! Treeee Yankees out!

Ha ha ha, I LOVE to count.

Zenslinger said...

Zone looks squeezed on those two first pitches to the Dr. and on a couple of Beckett's on GDGD.

I realize this means nothing.

Patrick said...

Lowell....walked?

Amy said...

BB.

Why is my dog getting ticks even with the tick collar? I hate ticks. We have already taken four off of her since the weekend.

Benjamin said...

PAPI

L-girl said...

PAPI DONG!!!!!!

Patrick said...

David Ortiz...home run?

Amy said...

YES!! A PAPI DONG!!!

Ish said...

HOT DAMN THAT THINGS GONEEEE!!!

L-girl said...

HUGE dong to CF and when better to do it!!!

Amy said...

Maybe that eye exam reassured him?

Kevin said...

LARGE FATHER!!!

nick said...

Thank god for obstetricians!

redsock said...

BRIDGE!

Patrick said...

Pass those eye drops around!

L-girl said...

Amy, you are still using tick collars? Not Frontline or Advantage? Tick collars are so ineffective. Any reason why you don't do the monthly treatment?

Amy said...

I love to see Ortiz smile. :)

Zenslinger said...

Yes! Yes! Yes!

This is not a random HR like his first!

It's an actual trend of hitting better over the last week or so!

He may not be Back but at least he may be Not Bad!

Or...he may be Back!

God, how I hate exclamation marks!

Ish said...

Hot drizzly dong. That was one of my favorite moments this season. That dong. Did anyone else have that feeling?

s1c said...

Papi!!!

L-girl said...

"Thank god for obstetricians!"

LOL

Patrick said...

I love to see Ortiz smile. :)

meeee tooo! The smile that melts hearts.

Kevin said...

7 game hit streak

redsock said...

i was thinking that about seeing him smile too. a great sign.

"dead central" WTF?

Amy said...

We cannot use Advantix because it is dangerous for cats (according to our vet). I assume the same for Frontline since he did not recommend it. We use Advantage for fleas, but seem stuck with the collar for ticks.

Tek not happy with that call.

L-girl said...

Seeing! Ortiz! Smile! Is! Great!

!!

Ish said...

Before the home run Don said Ortiz "quietly" had a six-game hit streak going.

Usually because people don't notice a six-game hitting streak.

L-girl said...

Oh, that's too bad. You might want to double check. I think (but not sure) that Advantix and Frontline are two different drugs.

Patrick said...

Fangraphs says that dong gave us a 73% chance to win.

Benjamin said...

Thank god for obstetricians!

Papi's pregnant?

Ish said...

I wish my dong would give me a 73% chance of winning...

Amy said...

Yeah, I should check that out (about Frontline). Once we are up ten runs, I will do an internet search.

I didn't get the obstetrician line. Can someone explain?

Patrick said...

gameday audio doesn't have the papi dong yet, but I eagerly await it.

redsock said...

LOL Ish!

L-girl said...

I'll go get the post that explains the OB comment.

Amy said...

Yes, Ish, that is a high point. A Papi dong against the Yankees---what could be sweeter.

Benjamin said...

I didn't get the obstetrician line. Can someone explain?

I assume he meant ophthalmologists.

Patrick said...

I wish my dong would give me a 73% chance of winning...

OMG, LMAO.

nick said...

"While searching for the word "optometrist", Tito initially said "obstetrician" -- and once everything was clarified, he said: "If he ends up pregnant on Tuesday, we have an issue!""

Benjamin said...

HAHA

L-girl said...

Go to this post and search for "obstr".

SAFE!

redsock said...

BITCH TITS BOBBLE!

Ish said...

HESITATION! A-Rod's not having a good last couple of nights at third. What a turd. Hahaha

Patrick said...

An A-bob, by A-rod!

Amy said...

Hahaha, their great 3d baseman can't get it out of his glove.

L-girl said...

Oops, I see Nick explained it first.

Ish said...

B-Tits bobbled one last night that put Zobrist on. Next pitch was a wild pitch. Then a scrotum fly. Then an RBI single by Hernandez.

Then a two-run dong by Kapler.

Amy said...

Thanks, Laura. That is too funny!

nick said...

E-rod.

Amy said...

Nick, thanks also. I didn't see your post until after Laura's. The problem with reading from the bottom up!

nick said...

now, why didn't E-rod try to get the lead runner on that play?

redsock said...

cash in, werd.

Benjamin said...

ON FIRE

Amy said...

ON FIRE!! Drew!

s1c said...

On Fire!!!

L-girl said...

Amy, I just checked, Frontline is used for both dogs and cats.

Whoo-hoo! ON FIRE!!!

Patrick said...

Burn, baby, burn!

redsock said...

the rain cannot put out the FIRE!

Ish said...

ON FIRE!!!! Two runs! Almost goes bridge!

Kevin said...

Fire!

Amy said...

Yeah, I am sure chewing on the glove will help, ARod.

L-girl said...

"An A-bob, by A-rod!"

LOL Everyone is so funny tonight :)

Ish said...

We come out guns blazin' for the Yankees series. Looks like us and the boys in white!

Ish said...

Don how long has Beckett been waiting?

Ish said...

Through the hole!

Amy said...

Thanks, Laura, I will ask my vet whether there is any reason not to use it.

YOUK!

redsock said...

we need some THUNDER with this rain.

nick said...

I was worried drew was gonna go for home on that one. I wouldn't have been able to watch that wreck.

redsock said...

how many fucking times is don gonna tell us AJ had 231 or whatever Ks last year? JESUS!

21 MINUTES!!!

Ish said...

Don: 21 minute wait for Josh Beckett.

Thanks, Don!

nick said...

There ya go RS! good to know Beck doesn't mind

nick said...

knock Doogie out in the second...

Ok. third.

Benjamin said...

Only nine batters that inning.

Ish said...

Damn!!! That looked so good off the bat.


Free Molson Canadian t-shirts! Right after Bay's AB.

Amy said...

A four run lead, and Beckett being Beckett. Ahhh.

redsock said...

43 pitch inning, Burnett at 62 thru 2.

meuniermr said...

I hope that wasn't one of those too much too soon innings.

L-girl said...

Good Amy, I hope you can use it. Amazingly (to me) there are no ticks where we live.

Amy said...

25 minute wait with commercials, I guess.

Ish said...

Haha Melky. What a tool. How are them peanuts? How's your porn star?

redsock said...

DUD K!

Kevin said...

Sit

Ish said...

I get annoyed when Eck says "I gotta have that call."

Amy said...

Yeah, I just read some myself about Frontline, and they make for cats and dogs (though obviously with different dosages). I will have to inquire of my vet.

The ticks drive us crazy.

Amy said...

make it for cats and dogs...

Ish said...

OT to the T.

Benjamin said...

I can only assume and hope that Molson doesn't have those ridiculous commercials in Canada.

Patrick said...

I hate ticks. They can change your life.


I <3 beckett, btw.

Amy said...

1-2-3. No long wait for Burnett.

redsock said...

A rerun for Flo?

redsock said...

now .201!!

L-girl said...

In Canada, Molson is called "Canadian". The Molson sold in the US is called "Export".

All the Molson ads here are about how Canadian it is to drink Canadian.

Amy said...

Above the Mendoza line!

redsock said...

tomko up again

andy said...

Just Ecking in. I've got gas so I'm gonna go lay down some serious cheese.

redsock said...

so burnett is 5-0 vs the sox, but they talk about him yakking up a 6-0 lead. so 5-0 -- BFD.

Benjamin said...

Uhhhhh, Lowell?

s1c said...

WTF???

Amy said...

Uh, excuse me, what was he thinking?

Ish said...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING, DOC!!!

"Action didn't happen."

Patrick said...

I knew Lowell was out as soon as I heard, 'and the runner takes off'

Ish said...

Looks like Tek missed a sign.

nick said...

hmmm... explain that one to me. lowell may have many things, wheels ain't one.

andy said...

I think Tito just told Lowell to go sit and then he said come on. Like cheer rah rah come on.

Kevin said...

Lowell...how is that a good idea?

redsock said...

could that be the first sign the computer ever missed?

nick said...

looking for a Tek SB here...

Ish said...

Robbie Cano! Let it go!

Amy said...

Too bad Lowell got thrown out.

Kevin said...

And now he would have been on second anyway. Bleh.

redsock said...

robbie cano -- whatta ya know!!!

nick said...

hmmm... pedroia he ain't.

Kevin said...

And now he'd be on third.

andy said...

Tito said "Let's go" or "Sit down"
Lowell was bitching in his ear in a subdued Lowell way.

Amy said...

And we'd only have one out.

nick said...

I cannot in good conscience call Burnett "doogie". Doogie was cute in his nerdiness. AJ not so much.


yes!!!!

Benjamin said...

GREEN

Amy said...

Yes!!

I think Tek just apologized for missing the sign.

Patrick said...

green to monster.

andy said...

Kotsay is a sexy lumberjack.

Ish said...

Hey Jason! You just cost us a run!

That's done with though.

Green power!

s1c said...

5-0, I want Holly to explain again how having Green play is not as well as having Lugo play.

L-girl said...

Something tells me Lowell "running" and getting thrown out will not cost us the game.

Ish said...

Haha Girardi's like gimme that fucking ball. He's PISSED. Hahahah.

Kevin said...

5-0!

nick said...

buh-bye not-Doogie.

Amy said...

I don't even see the resemblance to Doogie. Neil Patrick Harris is much cuter than Burnett.

Benjamin said...

I cannot in good conscience call Burnett "doogie". Doogie was cute in his nerdiness. AJ not so much.

How about Carl Jenkins?

redsock said...

so much for the pitching duel of fastballers....

HAHAHAHAHHA

andy said...

Yep Tek just scores and he is still thinking about what he did. That man brings a tear to my eye.

nick said...

nice try, Benjamin, but I categorically reject all Neil Patrick Harris comparisons.

How 'bout my ferret's ass?

meuniermr said...

Burnett GOT NO CONTROL, YEAHHHHHHHHHH

Ish said...

Amalie twitter: Sox take Reymond Fuentes, a high school outfielder out of Fernando Callejo High School in Puerto Rico with the No. 28 pick.

redsock said...

AJ: 84 pitches in 2.2 IP.

Even Dice says: "Man, that's a lot of pitches."

andy said...

Dice also woulda said, ahh I'd get out of all this without giving up a run.

L-girl said...

I think there's a very strong resemblance. But I have no soft spot for Doogie Howser. I never saw a minute of that show.

andy said...

OF? Why? Musta been best available for trade bait. I don't think we will bring many OF's up because that is where power lives usually and we trade for or buy that.

Patrick said...

Cortisone and Eye drops accounting for 4 runs in this game.

Who's juicing? WE ARE!

andy said...

How i met your mother.

Benjamin said...

http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=%22dj+qualls%22&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2&aq=f&oq=

How about DJ Qualls? He's even got the middle initial going.

Benjamin said...

I'll pretend I didn't mess up the cut & paste there.

Patrick said...

Sox aim for most talent at their given pick. I'm sure he was it.

He is Beltran's cousin, apparently.

andy said...

Yeah shouldn't cortisone be a PED? Does it not help you perform when and how you would not naturally be able to?

Amy said...

DiceK hasn't been quite as Houdini-like this season, Andy. He has given up quite a few runs.

Kevin said...

Sit

Benjamin said...

Yeah shouldn't cortisone be a PED? Does it not help you perform when and how you would not naturally be able to?

How about penicillin? Back in the day, real men died from compound fractures.

Amy said...

NPHarris also hosted the Tony awards last night (but I did not see those either). I used to watch Doogie. I have watched an embarrassing amount of silly TV in my life.

nick said...

I will take that perfectly executed cut and past of DJ Qualls. Nose not so much as NPH, but yeah...

Ish said...

That dude as in the movie Big Trouble.

L-girl said...

I don't see how an anti-inflammatory could be considered performance enhancing. That's what cortisone is being used for in those cases.

nick said...

How 'bout Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog (Hulu link. That's a fine thing.

Amy said...

K!

As Kevin would say, SIT.

Benjamin said...

NPHarris also hosted the Tony awards last night (but I did not see those either).

I was stuck in an airport, and the airport bar had two teevees playing. One was showing Mike Huckabee's show and the other was showing the Tonys.

redsock said...

K-Rod!

Kevin said...

Sit, slappy

redsock said...

I think Sterling announced a two-run bomb from Slappy on that swing.

Amy said...

Perhaps that is why you have NPH on the brain tonight, Benjamin?

L-girl said...

Today our newspaper was all agog because.... A Canadian Won A Tony!!! They are so funny with that up here.

Amy said...

Ah, shit. That was close.
