G59: Red Sox 6, Yankees 5

Yankees - 010 110 200 - 5 11  0
Red Sox - 121 200 00x - 6 9 0
Yet another Yankees starter failed to finish the third inning and the Red Sox bullpen held the line to notch the seventh straight win over the New Yorkers this season.

Wang (2.2-6-4-3-3) threw 29 pitches in each of the first two innings. He walked three in the first inning, with Bay's single putting the Sox on the board. In the second, Nick Green and Dustin Pedroia struck back-to-back RBI doubles. Mike Lowell drove Wang's first pitch of the third over the Wall for a dong. However, Wang's miserable performance did lower his ERA: 14.46 to 14.34!

Kevin Youkilis smashed a two-run dong into the Red Sox pen off Phil Hughes in the fourth to give Boston a 6-2 lead.

New York battled back -- back-to-back home runs by Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira (4-for-5) off Ramon Ramirez to start the seventh closed the gap to 6-5. Ram-Ram also allowed a two-out single, but Hideki Okajima came in and struck out Shemp. A leadoff walk was bunted to second in the eighth, but Jeemer fanned both CI and Damon to close that door.

In the ninth, Jonathan Papelbon walked Slappy with one out, but struck out Robinson Cano and then got Dumbo to fly to left.

J.D. Drew tripled and walked three times and George Kottaras smacked two doubles. David Ortiz walked twice in four trips and had a fly out to deep center.

Boston now has a one-game lead over the Yankees in the East. The Blue Jays were rained out in Texas and are 2 GB.

***

Chien-Ming Wang (14.46, 31 ERA+) / Tim Wakefield (4.50, 106 ERA+)

Since coming back from the disabled list, Wang has chopped 20 runs off his ERA (!), but has still surrendered 16 hits in 12.2 innings. In his start last Thursday against Texas, he went 4.2-7-5-1-5, 69.

***

Jed Lowrie could begin a rehab stint in the minors in little more than a week. Terry Francona: "We need to certainly look at him the next three days, let him have the next three days before we contemplate anything. See where his strength is."

In his last seven starts, Josh Beckett has a 1.70 ERA; in his last four outings, it's 0.31. Last night, he became the first Red Sox pitcher to allow one hit or less in six or more scoreless innings against the Yankees in 19 years (Greg Harris, 8-1-0-0-7, June 7, 1990).

RR what the fuck??

Amy said...

GOD DAMN YANKEES. I HATE YOU ALL.

L-girl said...

Maybe I should leave and come back again.

Amy said...

Why did Wake come out? Pitch count?

nick said...

3 maples. wow. that's fierce. sounds almost tornado like (we had quite the one here in '95).

meuniermr said...

Wow first time with one of those, lol

s1c said...

you forgot the belly to belly

Ish said...

One of my cats did not enjoy when the other one was smelling her ass. She turned around and smacked him in the face.

meuniermr said...

Maybe RR was too amped coming out of the pen.

Amy said...

OK, one down. Get it under control, Ram Ram.

SoSock said...

And Amy - I know what you mean about the kids. Mine are 27, 30, and 33, and I know they hear all of this and worse, but I'm not sure I would want them to hear ME say it. :)

Ish said...

Well the Yankees are Pedro's daddy right.

Amy said...

Yeah, cats do not like that much at all. Nor do most dogs.

Pepe Lepew said...

C'mon, guys. We're still winning!

Amy said...

Right, SoSock. So what if we have a double standard?

Ish said...

Sit down, Douche Canoe.

Amy said...

It's okay, Pepe, we are just pissed that they are scoring at all.

redsock said...

whatta ya know!

Ish said...

Sidenote to Pepe: I am wickedly excited about Game 7!

Benjamin said...

I want a win. But I also want another career win for Wake.

SoSock said...

Wasn't quite tornado stuff, although we've been through a few of those. News called it "downbursts and straight line winds". Hit over 80 in some places, that's close enough to tornado for me.

Ish said...

That's F0-F1 tornado strength there, anyways. We had a tornado here last summer that was an F2 and killed a woman in her fifties. Had a 40+ mile path that went through several towns.

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

nick said...

the cheese just rolls off Eck's tongue. RamRam not so ramming tonight.

Ish said...

Jeemer Time!

redsock said...

Jeemer vs Shemp

SoSock said...

Shit - why throw a BP pitch there?
Easy cheese

Pepe Lepew said...

Sidenote to Pepe: I am wickedly excited about Game 7!

Me too. But, boy, the Wings are tough in Detroit!

Benjamin said...

The strike zone is pretty absurd this game.

Ish said...

Couple of those balls were deep in the strike zone.

Pepe Lepew said...

Is it just my imagination or is this the slowest game in the entire history of professional baseball?

SoSock said...

Right Ish. I think the lack of vortex is what kept it from being classified tornado. Still very dangerous. There's a block and a half in a neighborhood about a mile from me that had massive damage. My last service call today was to check out water damage to the panel box in a house that had a tree come through the roof and the rain poured in for an hour or so.

redsock said...

2:30 in the mid-7th (almost), nah that's zippy.

Dr. Jeff said...

They were talking about how many guys are throwing close to 100 mph now. Could they be using a different gun?

s1c said...

It's going to be the change

Dr. Jeff said...

YES.

Benjamin said...

SIT MOTHERFUCKER

SoSock said...

SIT DOWN IN YOUR SEAT!

s1c said...

Jeemer looking like jeemer lately

Pepe Lepew said...

There goes Godzilla!

Dr. Jeff said...

Redsock, I had an idea for the game thread...I often would go back the next day and look at the comments, or if I wasn't really following along, I would check something from earlier in the game. So I was wondering if you would consider posting a comment at the beginning of each 1/2 inning, or each inning, like;

START OF 8TH

to make it easy to see where the comments were relative to the game.

Or not!

Benjamin said...

Meh.

Ish said...

Tornado swath in southeastern NH.


WOW!!!! Love that catch. Wrong uniform!

Amy said...

Damn...Swisher got that?

ARGGH.

SoSock said...

There goes Godzilla!
hee, hee. There goes Toky-o. Go go Godzilla.

Pepe Lepew said...

Phoo!

Ish said...

START OF 4TH.

SoSock said...

helluva catch - dammit

redsock said...

i could never remember and be consistent.

Amy said...

Please score some insurance runs. These pesky Yankees like to come back in the late innings.

SoSock said...

I assume Jeemer is out for the 8th.
Who's next if he gets in a jam?
Saito?

redsock said...

saito was up, but then it looked like only bot.

Amy said...

Uh oh. Come on, Oki.

redsock said...

d(ud)p pls

Ish said...

The ol' 1-3 scrotum.

s1c said...

I hope he had his cup on.

Ish said...

Hit the goalposts of Kottaras.

redsock said...

1-4.

Pepe Lepew said...

Hit the goalposts of Kottaras.

He's a good Canadian kid! He's tough!

Ish said...

1-4 scrotum?

Amy said...

Does he have a tattoo there?

redsock said...

jeemer to jockey!

Amy said...

Harv has inched closer to the TV. Don't get too comfy, Harv.

redsock said...

CI?

KI!

Benjamin said...

SIT, HERPES

s1c said...

Sit tangibel

Ish said...

Amy I'd love to hear you say that out loud to him.

redsock said...

Don't get too comfy, Harv.

!!!!

Amy said...

No way, Ish. It would be a violation of league rules.

Dr. Jeff said...

I so hope Damon strikes out.

Ish said...

Glad to know we're a part of your inner monologue then Amy. :)

Amy said...

One more strike, Oki.

Pepe Lepew said...

Damon and Teixeira. Eeep!

redsock said...

so a "fuck yeah" has never slipped out?

Amy said...

Like I said, Ish, the thread is where I get to express myself.

SIT SIT SIT!!

Benjamin said...

SIT

s1c said...

Yep, Jeemer is back to being Jeemer!!!

redsock said...

i enjoyed that.

Pepe Lepew said...

WWJDD?
Strike out!

Benjamin said...

Like I said, Ish, the thread is where I get to express myself.

At least adopt a smug expression.

Ish said...

OKI DOOOOKI!!!!

SoSock said...

cool - Capn I & Noodle both whiff.

s1c said...

Runs, we need runs

Amy said...

Well, I have learned incredible self-control during Red Sox/Yankee games.

I am more free to express joy and anger when the Sox play anyone else.

Let's just say that we do not like to be mad at each other.

Ish said...

I liked that a little too much.



Nah. Not possible.

redsock said...

BUT HOW CAN WE TRUST JEEMER WITHOUT A 385976-RUN LEAD?

Amy said...

Stony faced, Benjamin. Perhaps an occasional smile. I think I should try for an Oscar.

redsock said...

Let's just say that we do not like to be mad at each other.

Well, you'd be happy.

Amy said...

SCORE RUNS.

Amy said...

RUNS. I said RUNS. Not outs.

redsock said...

maybe harvey should thread at replacement level or bronx banter.

Benjamin said...

Maybe you should play poker with him. He roots for the MFYs, so you know he has bad judgment.

Benjamin said...

doUble!

Ish said...

Good Canadian boy! Balls of steel.

Pepe Lepew said...

Kottaras!!!!
You magnificent Canadian bastard!

redsock said...

poutine powered

Dr. Jeff said...

one run would be huge here.

Amy said...

Bring Kottaras home.

Dr. Jeff said...

How about something off the wall, Drew?

Pepe Lepew said...

Oh, Sut. I think you're an idiot. Pedroia *always* swings like that!

Ish said...

Poutine powered! LOVE it.

Amy said...

Harvey isn't interested in threading. He is always doing other things while watching Yankee games. You know, it's just not for everyone. :)

Amy said...

I want some FIRE.

redsock said...

i don't blame him. it must be depressing to focus 100% on the chokers.

Amy said...

Up to YOUK to bring in THREE. Though I would gladly take one.

Amy said...

I will warn Harvey to wear his tough skin at JOS1!

Amy said...

Be patient, Youk.

Benjamin said...

He is always doing other things while watching Yankee games.

Grinding his teeth, hopefully.

s1c said...

Squandered

Benjamin said...

Bah.

Amy said...

Oh, man, Don, you had my going.

SoSock said...

Bot time!

Pepe Lepew said...

Looked good when he swung. He just got under it.

redsock said...

really, don. fuck you.

Ish said...

Hopefully we'll see a Snuff film tonight.

s1c said...

I hate to say it but I have no confidence in bot vs a-rod, so he needs to get tex out.

Amy said...

Bot, there is no room for error tonight.

Dr. Jeff said...

Anyone catch that ESPN put up a graphic that said "Papelbom"?

Benjamin said...

Sit your tush down.

SoSock said...

one

redsock said...

teix message: fuck you!

s1c said...

A little gamesmanship by Girardi?

Pepe Lepew said...

The Yankees do one thing well ... and that's come from behind.
I won't get cocky ... yet.

Ish said...

I'm always intrigued by different crowd chants. Are they chanting "You used steroids"?

Ish said...

The Yankees do one thing well ... and that's come from behind.
I won't get cocky ... yet.


That made me laugh for a completely different reason.

Dr. Jeff said...

I still think Fenway should have had Tic Tac night, in response to A-rod's claim that he was taking nothing stronger than Tic Tacs.

Ish said...

96 mph. If it was 94 or 95 it'd be gone.

Dr. Jeff said...

or was it " I knew it wasn't tic tacs..." something like that.

Ish said...

"Reached back for a little extra." Drink!

SoSock said...

Amy, is it cold up there? A lot of jackets in the stands.

Amy said...

Shit. Come on, Pap. Do your thing (your 2007, 2008 thing, that is).

Ish said...

Goodness. We're coming from behind, getting cocky, and reaching back for a little extra.

Dr. Jeff said...

Kinda wish Tek were calling pitches now...

Pepe Lepew said...

That made me laugh for a completely different reason.

:)

Ish said...

56 degrees in Boston, Sosock.

L-girl said...

Tic Tacs would make a lot of noise, too.

Amy said...

It was quite cool today for June 10. Got to mid-60s or so. I bet it is quite cool out there now. But I am in this stuffy apartment with the AC on.

Ish said...

Dr. Jeff I thought about that in the 8th.

Ish said...

Kottaras has been calling a good bullpen game though. Cept to Ramo.

Ish said...

Hard to believe that FOUR years ago today I was out in a big lightning storm taking pictures.

Amy said...

Uch.

Benjamin said...

At least FY with the save.

Pepe Lepew said...

Nice play, Dustin!

Amy said...

SIT!!

Benjamin said...

SIT, YOU FUCKER

Dr. Jeff said...

Great K.

Ish said...

Sit down AGAIN, Douche Canoe!

Pepe Lepew said...

56 degrees in Boston, Sosock.

79 in Montana today. But, it was snowing two days ago!
GOT HIM!!!!!

redsock said...

K-ano.

SoSock said...

two

(yes!)

Amy said...

One more, Pap. I am holding my breath. Pretty much literally.

Ish said...

Hairy cheese with some pump or hump on it. I'm not sure. Could be both.

redsock said...

dumbo to end it

Amy said...

OK, I sighed audibly. Defenses breaking down with the tension.

s1c said...

dirty water!!!

7-0 vs the MFY's and no worse than a 1st place tie when they hit philly!!!

Benjamin said...

WATER

Amy said...

YES!!!!

SUCH SWEET DIRTY WATER!!

Dr. Jeff said...

Great game!

Pepe Lepew said...

Heep!
That went deep!!!
7-0!

L-girl said...

dirty water seven times in a row!

Ish said...

STUPID NESN CAMERAWORK.

Made me think it was headed for the wall! But nope! Into JayBay's glove for some MORE dirty water!!!!! Hot damn!

Good threading with you all once again. Let's do it again tomorrow huh?

SoSock said...

three


Hot DAMN!

Dirty Water.

Love is the seventh win.

redsock said...

W for Wake!

s1c said...

20 more wins and we can remove fat billy from the all time winner list!!!

Amy said...

Good night to you all. This was one fun game!

Benjamin said...

Beaten again.

Lord Lynch said...

Ah yes. I woke up this morning knowing the score, as I slept fitfully. I woke up with it 1-1, then 3-1, then 6-3 and then 6-5. Oh yes, I saw Gardner was on first in the top of the 8th and hid beneath the pillow.

Then at around 5 a.m. UK time, I woke up again (wonder why I feel tired every morning) and saw that we had won.

The Yankee beloved is not happy. "Shut Up" seems to be the main phrase du jour. 11 wins away from a divorce...

Oh I don't feel much like singing the blues...when the Red Sox win...and the Yankees lose....
