G102: Red Sox 6, Orioles 5

Red Sox - 012 010 200 - 6 11  2
Orioles - 003 002 000 - 5 9 0
Kevin Youkilis hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning and Jonathan Papelbon nailed down the win with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Smoltz could not hold a 3-0 lead (David Ortiz clocked a two-run dong in the third) and Baltimore tied it right away. Jacoby Ellsbury whacked a solo shot to start the fifth and he was on board when Yook went yard two innings later. LBJ was 3-for-5 with two singles, a homer, 2 runs scored, an RBI, a stolen base and a dong-robbing catch on Luke Scott to end the Orioles sixth.

Yook singled twice in addition to his homer. ... Josh Reddick (#68) made his major league debut when he pinch-hit for Rocco Baldelli to lead off the top of the ninth. He grounded out to shortstop on a 0-1 pitch and played RF for the bottom of the inning. ... The 5-6-7-8-9 spots in the Red Sox order went 2-for-16.

Smoltz (6-8-5-0-2, 87) was relieved by Ramon Ramirez (1B, F7, E1, 5U, 6-4), Hideki Okajima (K, BB, BB, PF3, L1) and Bot (K, F8, K).John Smoltz (7.04, 66 ERA+) / Jeremy Guthrie (5.21, 88 ERA+)

Boston is currently 2.5 GB New York. Yankees/White Sox at 8 PM.Check out the very last sentence in this ESPN story on Victor Martinez:
But a bigger deal, for Toronto ace Roy Halladay, fell apart when Boston refused to part with both Buchholz and reliever Daniel Bard.
One other story from last week worth noting: Kevin Youkilis had three friends who committed suicide when he was young and his Hits for Kids foundation is raising money for Riverside Trauma Center and its efforts to prevent youth suicide.

So ........

Bard in the 9th?

Benjamin said...

Born in Jamaica, grew up in Indiana and Ohio.

L-girl said...

According to Wiki, Masterson went to HS in Ohio. Grew up in a few places.

Not sure that would matter as far as what team you play for.

Iridescence said...

Indians should trade Chief Wahoo for a racially-insnsitive-logo to be named later

redsock said...

201 is dumb, except when I do it.
WOO HOO!!

redsock said...

bard tying his shoes.

L-girl said...

Spiders should use spiders as their logo. It's so obvious.

redsock said...

spiders would have a lot of web gems.

Benjamin said...

I still think they should go with the Cleveland Infants again.

L-girl said...

come on jeemer, cut the shit

redsock said...

dp pls.

mmm'kay?

Benjamin said...

Dave Roberts: "This is where giving up the one out walk comes back to haunt you."

By giving up another one out walk?

redsock said...

how did anyone think "infants" was a good nickname?

L-girl said...

The Infants! In a league with the Toddlers, the Terrible Twos, and of course the Fetuses.

A Conformer said...

Jeemer in Baltimore hasn't been a great combo in the past. Crossing my fingers.

L-girl said...

Infants, it's hilarious.

L-girl said...

hahahahahahahahaYEAH

Benjamin said...

Please don't kill our only good relief pitcher, Scott.

redsock said...

The Infants could go to New York and see if they were Toilet trained.

...

JEEMER STAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

I would like some insurance, please. Not the geico or aflac kind.

Benjamin said...

(With apologies to Bard.)

Benjamin said...

CWS 5 - MFY 5

L-girl said...

The Infants could go to New York and see if they were Toilet trained.

Heh. Remember when fans in (I think it was) KC wore diapers on their heads for Paul ONeill? Perfect for this Infants team.

redsock said...

rico
green
lbj

L-girl said...

Oh fuck, tied in Chicago?

Here is an infant PHing.

redsock said...

whoa - tito slipped reddick in there

L-girl said...

Green, you owe us, all the time.

redsock said...

ML debut for josh reddick!

redsock said...

bot up

redsock said...

what # did reddick have?

L-girl said...

Come on LBJ, it's your night. Really 4 for 4.

Iridescence said...

"The Infants could go to New York and see if they were Toilet trained."

Lovin' it!:)

redsock said...

GDGD says 68.

A Conformer said...

I really hope Tito is gonna put Jed in as a defensive replacement. No room for error, literally.

L-girl said...

Plus the great catch LBJ made.

Reddick either 59 or 68. I didn't see, but they said the new kids were wearing those numbers.

L-girl said...

Castig: Orioles finally find a legitimate way to get Ellsbury out

redsock said...

It's Bot time. Buckle up!

L-girl said...

Wish I was happy to see Papelbon.

redsock said...

Reddick in RF.

Benjamin said...

Reddick = #68

9casey said...

A Conformer said...

Do you actually think he is a SS than Green?

A Conformer said...

Is Bard at least still warming?

9casey said...

better ss

Ish said...

Josh Reddick: The ball will find you.


Cool that I saw Reddick play up at Hadlock earlier in the month and now he's up with the big club!

redsock said...

oh me oh my
love that felix pie(/dylan)

A Conformer said...

Do you actually think he is a SS than Green?

Ummm... yeah?

redsock said...

can't take green's bat out of the lineup in case of extras!

L-girl said...

Cool that I saw Reddick play up at Hadlock earlier in the month and now he's up with the big club!

That is always cool! Even if he's only here for a day.

*****

Lowrie > Green

L-girl said...

green has a bat?

9casey said...

A Conformer said...
Do you actually think he is a SS than Green?

Ummm... yeah?




Tito doesn't ,mentioned it on weei the other day....they asked him did you think about replacing Green, and he said "with who"

9casey said...

Was actually taken back by the question, pretty much called Holley an idiot....

L-girl said...

Tito's not going to publicly say Green sucks at SS

Ish said...

I'm sorta thinking Fenway's gun was fast. Have any of you seen 98-99 tonight from Bot?

L-girl said...

Scoreboard must have told Os fans to make noise

Benjamin said...

Finally.

L-girl said...

SIT PIE

9casey said...

L-girl said...
Tito's not going to publicly say Green sucks at SS



I believe that , i also think he believes he is their best defensive ss...

redsock said...

GDGD has a high of 96.

94-96.

Iridescence said...

Why is Green still starting so often? he seems to fit the Tony Pena Jr. "zero tool player" mold more and more lately.

Benjamin said...

I'm sorta thinking Fenway's gun was fast. Have any of you seen 98-99 tonight from Bot?

It is, and we haven't.

redsock said...

the fenway gun is tied into the fx system, i believe.
nesn may have its own adjustable gun.

9casey said...

Imagine the White Sox actually traded away the starter for todays game, for someone on the DL

Ish said...

And it was 98-99 on fx at Fenway?

redsock said...

that ball 2 was 95 on masn and gdgd

Ish said...

96 on NESN for the 2-2

9casey said...

Iridescence said...

They win when he plays....lets not a start a Lugo like push to sit Green, that does no one any good...

Ish said...

Penny was also hitting 98 the other night.

redsock said...

is bot a one-pitch pitcher now -- or is tek incapable of putting down anything other than a 1?

Benjamin said...

Two.

L-girl said...

One more Pap, you can do it.

Ish said...

I think the latter.

What happened to the slutter?

Benjamin said...

Still 5-5 in Chicago.

9casey said...

redsock said...

don't jinx it , its working

Ish said...

Ask and you shall receive! Papelbon shook off a few calls and wanted slider.

Ish said...

You can't throw fastballs forever.

A Conformer said...

They win when he plays....lets not a start a Lugo like push to sit Green, that does no one any good...

Why not? He doesn't hit nor field well. A backup shortstop is what he should be, if Lowrie is healthy.

L-girl said...

What, like people are listening to us? Our opinions don't affect who plays.

9casey said...

The orioles have a promisng young outfield

Benjamin said...

WATER!

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

Ish said...

DIRTY ORIOLE WATER.

L-girl said...

DIRTY WATER

9casey said...

A Conformer said...

He didn't make an error for like 2 months , before the other night

A Conformer said...

Long fucking OTT, but I ain't complaining. Dirty fucking water.

L-girl said...

Now for the loss in Chicago

Ish said...

We're 1-0 post-deadline.

WATCH OUT!

L-girl said...

He didn't make an error for like 2 months , before the other night

But does he make the plays? They don't all count as Es.

L-girl said...

I'm gonna watch the NYY game, but not thread. See you all over the weekend, if work is slow.

Benjamin said...

Black Sox get a couple on with none out.

9casey said...

L-girl said...

Yeah, what has everyone been watching? He plays a good shortstop..I must be the only who thinks that.

Benjamin said...

In play, run(s)

redsock said...

MFY: 300 20
CWS: 131 01

CWS still hittin' in the 5th!

Benjamin said...

CWS 6 - MFY 5

redsock said...

We're 1-0 post-deadline.

WATCH OUT!


Pedal to the metal.

Benjamin said...

Kotsay picking back up where he left off (lining out).

redsock said...

Sadly, Jedi is hitting like 1/2 his weight. If he gets it in gear, Tito will know what to do.

Benjamin said...

Green's hitting shittily lately too, though. .130/.216/.217 this month.

redsock said...

shot of ci's dad in the stands.

redsock said...

Bases loaded, Getz single, 8-5 CWS!

redsock said...

dumbo sucks!!!!! i love it.

"not an" ace-ves is gone!!!

redsock said...

3rd Sb vs dumbo this inning!

nick said...

fuckin' fuck! what a sweet, meaty storm of curse this thread tonight! Missed out on the fun, but just as well that I didn't have emma looking over my shoulder on this one...no safe scrolling spots.

and for the casual record, it was I who shouted "Sweaty Dong" at the Fenway, both literally and figuratively over my sweet child's youthful ears.

redsock said...

I could have sworn that cry came from "back and to the left".
I apologize for the mix-up.

redsock said...

Final: 10-5.

1.5 GB.

FY.

nick said...

excellent! when I last looked at the score it was 6-5. I like these things. I guess the Sox are second home owners. (pwners?)

no prob! all part of my masterful ventriloquism act. "No, officer, it wasn't me. Must've been that guy back over there who called you a racist, bacon-butted bigot with a teeny peeny."
