G104: Red Sox 18, Orioles 10

Red Sox - 421 702 011 - 18 23  0
Orioles - 006 012 100 - 10 15 1
Let's go through the Red Sox lineup for this crazy game:
Ellsbury: 2-for-5 (7 PA), 2 walks, 4 runs

Pedroia: 3-for-5, walk, 4 runs

Martinez: 5-for-6, double, 4 RBI

Youkilis*: 3-for-4, 2 walks, 2 runs, 2 RBI

Ortiz: 0-for-5, walk, RBI

Drew: 1-for-1, double, run, 3 RBI

Baldelli: 2-for-5, home run, 2 runs

Lowell: 3-for-6, double, run, 3 RBI

Reddick: 2-for-6, home run, 2 runs, 2 RBI

Lowrie: 2-for-5, walk, run, RBI
*: Youkilis reached base in 13 consecutive plate appearances in this series, making outs in only his first at-bat on Friday and his last at-bat today. (The MLB record is 16, set by Ted Williams in 1957.)

In the first four innings, the Red Sox had 32 plate appearances -- eight in both of the first and second innings, and 12 in the fourth. Boston set season-highs in runs and hits.

Buchholz (4-9-7-4-3, 76) was not sharp. After Boston grabbed a 7-0 lead, he allowed five hits and six runs in the third. He was pulled after the first three Orioles reached base in the fifth.

There were 372 pitches thrown in this game, 213 by the Orioles. Nine of the 10 pitchers allowed at least one run.
Example
Clay Buchholz (3.52, 133 ERA+) / Jason Berken (6.21, 74 ERA+)

Redsox.com says Victor Martinez will be behind the plate this afternoon and Jason Bay will get the day off -- to rest what he called "a little humidity cramp" in his right hamstring.

J.D. Drew (sore right groin) may also spend another day on the bench.
I've been trying to move around, trying to get some blood going, just kind of seeing how it responds. ... It's aggravating. I feel like I was feeling good at the plate (11-for-his-last-25). That's one of the unfortunate things. When I hit that ball down the line [on Wednesday night], I just kind of felt it when I rounded first, and I knew right away that I was going to have to come out of that game. I didn't know whether I should stop the inning. Luckily, [Jason Varitek] hit the double in the gap. I could pretty much walk home.
George Kottaras was put on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back injury that he has been dealing with for roughly a month. He says he hurt it in batting practice.

When Josh Reddick, with the Sea Dogs in Pennsylvania, was told on Friday to pack his bags, he thought he had been traded or was being promoted to Pawtucket. He made his major league debut at Fenway Park later that evening.

Next week's starters: Jon Lester and Brad Penny in Tampa on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by John Smoltz, Josh Beckett, Buchholz, and Lester in New York. Joba Chamberlain will open the four-game series for the Yankees.

Yankees/White Sox at 2 PM.

Jerry Remy's life is getting better and better. His son Jared was fired last summer from the Red Sox for steroid implications.

Ish said...

And look at Jared's picture! Wow.

meuniermr said...

I knew Jared Remy in high school and he has always been a bad actor, had a son with some girl b/c he was a dumbass, etc.

meuniermr said...

He was not yet a no-neck roidhead when I knew him.

It's amazing that this is headline news today, a year after it happened....

9casey said...

I don't understand that last line, was he a dumbass because she was just "some girl".....I just don't understand what you are implying...

A Conformer said...

That high school pregnancy is not smart? Just guessing...

redsock said...

At 6 PM or so, I'd like to be 0.5 GA.

redsock said...

had a son with some girl b/c he was a dumbass

I thought it was because his pee-pee went into her hoo-hoo.

L-girl said...

Plenty of people get pregnant or get someone pregnant by accident. I'd be willing to bet that many people who read this blog came into being that very way.

It doesn't mean their parents were dumbasses.

I don't know Jared Remy, but I wouldn't assume having a baby as a teenager makes one dumb.

Iridescence said...

C'mon Clay make Theo look good for not trading you!

Is this the day the Sox take 1st place back? I hope so!

Thank You.....once again for interpreting my sarcasm...

L-girl said...

YES

9casey said...

Last Monday, I told my buddy , a yankee fan, the Red Sox would be in firtst place by tommorrow...so we put forth a little wager, saw him on Thursday, very arrogantly said I could back out of the bet, I said no.....see what happens.

L-girl said...

Thank You.....once again for interpreting my sarcasm...

My pleasure. Any time I get sarcasm online is a bonus.

redsock said...

That's L's BBoy!

L-girl said...

The SoSH Game Thread today is topical.

Oh man.

L-girl said...

That's L's BBoy!

...saying "See Allan?? I DO walk!"

redsock said...

I like a well-set table.

L-girl said...

Time for an Extra Mart RBI!

meuniermr said...

Was away moving some stuff around. Yes that was what I meant, he didn't use a condom or anything was the word that got around.

redsock said...

fucker

Iridescence said...

1st weird DR call of the day

"Jscoby is "proactive" on the bases" that makes a lot of sense.

Nice start....very nice...

redsock said...

YOOK
8-for-9 in this series!

(was sure Mart's liner was dropping ....)

redsock said...

Want some salami with your rice and beans?

Amy said...

Bases loaded, top of the first! Woooey!

Amy said...

Do not squander...

A Conformer said...

I always amazes me how Buck doesn't realise that every single person besides him says orTIZ, and not ORtiz

redsock said...

I miss June Ortiz.

Iridescence said...

"Want some salami with your rice and beans?"


mmmmm...Sounds good!

Amy said...

Just scanning the thread...I am one of those unplanned babies (tho my parents were not teens and were married, still too stupid to figure out birth control).

YES!!!!

redsock said...

THE FIRE STILL BURNS

L-girl said...

ORtiz, that's a classic.

ON FIRE!!! 3-0!!!!

Amy said...

(the YES was for the bases clearing hit, not my parents)

A Conformer said...

ON FIRE. Again.

meuniermr said...

¡SI ESTA EN FUEGO!

Iridescence said...

unfortunately we got pop instead of salami :(

Benjamin said...

!!!

L-girl said...

4-0!

Obie wants to know why a player can't do that all the time. Perhaps because they are not machines.

A Conformer said...

Can we put to sleep the idea that the Sox have a weak offense? Hmmm?

Amy said...

LOL!

We are up 4 runs, and the Yankees get Buerhle today. Feeling good!

redsock said...

first roberts says that drew's slump with risp means he'll start getting hits, then he says re some other player that a slump can damage him forever.

L-girl said...

Can we put to sleep the idea that the Sox have a weak offense? Hmmm?

Only until the next losing streak. Then we will be dooooooomed.

Iridescence said...

nice squander save Drew!

A Conformer said...

Only until the next losing streak. Then we will be dooooooomed.

Same time next year, then?

redsock said...

drew out - rico in

L-girl said...

the fire is doused for the day. rico baldy in.

A Conformer said...

Oh, fuck, Drew out already?

Amy said...

Hmm, and why is Baldelli in? (I have no sound on.)

Iridescence said...

I never thought Sox offense was weak just slumping, knew they would break out. Smoltz and Penny on the other hand fill me with much less confidence.

redsock said...

sore right groin for werd. in the first, he came around second and to home slower than lowell -- good thing the ball skipped past zauny bench.

Amy said...

Thanks, Allan. I wondered why he was so slow to home.

L-girl said...

I never thought Sox offense was weak just slumping, knew they would break out.

There were cries of doom from many quarters.

L-girl said...

Melvin Mora feels disrespected, apparently.

Perhaps he should consider being a better ballplayer. That might help.

Benjamin said...

Still laughing at Gregg Zaun's website.

redsock said...

Rules of Doom

1. When the team is hitting, a slump is due.

2. When the team is slumping, the slump will never end.

L-girl said...

Still laughing at Gregg Zaun's website.

HA HA HA HA HA

That is hilarious. I realize he didn't design it himself, but really, he should ask his peeps to tone it down.

redsock said...

Wow - Love the Rush!

He's "Zorro" now!

L-girl said...

More Rules of Doom

1. Remember history called 1978 and 2003

2. Forget history called 2004

Pepe Lepew said...

Oh, we're already way up?
Boy, this lineup suddenly looks sort of loaded. How did it score only 9 runs in five games?
This is my last Red Sox game for a week.

A Conformer said...

Still laughing at Gregg Zaun's website.

Love the soundtrack.

redsock said...

now i'm singing that rush intro!

L-girl said...

tek propaganda on the radio. even when tek is not playing, he's so invaluable to the team...

Pepe Lepew said...

now i'm singing that rush intro!


Aggggh, bad high school flashback...
Coulda been worse. Coulda been REO Speedwagon.

L-girl said...

This is my last Red Sox game for a week.

Trying to climb another mountain?

When you come back to the thread, I wonder how many GA we will be...

redsock said...

even when tek is not playing, he's so invaluable to the team...

we should take advantage of this benefit more often.

Amy said...

I love when our team is hitting. Of course. Just stating the obvious.

A Conformer said...

They had the same propaganda on MASN hahaha. Showing him talking to Kotchman, who's also not in the game, and talking about how he's telling him what you should do against Berken and how important he is to the team.

Iridescence said...

Yeah some ppl if the team goes 10-1 it's like "God damn it they should've won that game they lost!"

L-girl said...

fun!

Amy said...

Now why pick on Tek and ruin my good mood?? :)

L-girl said...

It's like people forget how baseball works - how frustration and losing is built into the game, unavoidable.

Extra Mart! 5-0

A Conformer said...

Berken's got nothing.

A Conformer said...

Shouldn't extra-mart be saved for XBH?

Pepe Lepew said...

Trying to climb another mountain?

When you come back to the thread, I wonder how many GA we will be...


I know, when I took off, they were 3 1/2 back, and now they're 1/2 back with Beuhrle (sp?) on the mound for the White Sox today. I should go away more often.
I'm going to "The Bob," which isn't Bank One Ballpark, but what Montanans call The Bob Marshall Wilderness.
I'm going to try to climb a 9,000-footer, yes. I have a better weather forecast for this puppy.

redsock said...

but he's helping the team while on the bench. don't you want him to help the team?

Amy said...

Yes, baseball is a game where if you get a hit one third of the time, you are doing extremely well. I don't think that would be true for free throws in basketball or passes in football. Not that I know squat about those sports...

redsock said...

Sausage time?

Amy said...

As I have said to my kids many times, it was not WHAT you said, but HOW you said it. :)

L-girl said...

I know, when I took off, they were 3 1/2 back, and now they're 1/2 back with Beuhrle (sp?) on the mound for the White Sox today. I should go away more often.

Ha, I wasn't drawing a cause and effect! Just wondering how far ahead we will be one week from now.

redsock said...

BASS - how low can you go?

L-girl said...

Shouldn't extra-mart be saved for XBH?

I think it's too good a nickname to save.

9casey said...

Big difference in Basketball, nothing is moving , and in football you and the reciever know the play.......In baseball you have a split second to react..

redsock said...

Tek's VOOBS* is very high!











(*: Value Over Other Bench Sitter)

A Conformer said...

Who the hell buys a Phillies La-Z-Boy or a Cardinals motorcycle?

L-girl said...

Sausage time

One of my fave Blackadder moments.

redsock said...

Berken faced 13 batters.
9 of them reached base.

L-girl said...

voobs :)

Who the hell buys a Phillies La-Z-Boy or a Cardinals motorcycle?

I have often wondered such things.

L-girl said...

Oo Bass, on the all-fish team.

L-girl said...

Also the all-instrument team, of course.

A Conformer said...

I vote green light.

Amy said...

Yes, 9C, my point was in agreement with the point that baseball has frustration built into it. A hitter knows that he is likely to fail at the plate at least a third of the time. A basketball player or a quarterback doesn't have that same frustration to deal with.

L-girl said...

6-0! We don't care which rag arm they put in.

Amy said...

VOOBS: very cute, Allan!

Amy said...

Nosebleed? Uch. Poor kid.

redsock said...

reddick with the bloody nose

redsock said...

tito looks amused

A Conformer said...

Who was it that said "they don't make them like they used to, bro" about Reddick. That's pretty funny.

L-girl said...

3-0 NYY

Amy said...

Damn. Melky hit a 3 fun HR.

redsock said...

Don: Dud dong.

Amy said...

3 run

A Conformer said...

Donduddong. Musical.

redsock said...

you're up by 6, hh. relax and pitch.

A Conformer said...

Man, 5 DPs in the last 6 innings for the Sox defense.

Iridescence said...

damn milk dud

redsock said...

reddick due up, but the blood still flows. tito out to buy time?

A Conformer said...

Reddick, if you hit a dong you won't have to run hard...

redsock said...

reddick has a rednose

Amy said...

I see a nickname in the works for the new kid.

L-girl said...

NOSEBLEED!!!!!

Amy said...

A bloodynose dong!

redsock said...

BLOODY DONG!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

Get a nosebleed, hit a dong!

A Conformer said...

Told ya.

Iridescence said...

Gross...Buchholz slobbering like Garza in the dugout.
Why do they have to show a camera shot of that?

Amy said...

Lovely smile on the kid also.

L-girl said...

I used to suffer from nosebleeds when I was a kid. I don't envy him getting one on TV!

Amy said...

Ofer, you did call that. Spooky.

Amy said...

Never had a nosebleed. What causes that to happen spontaneously?

redsock said...

Jedi with the ewalk.

L-girl said...

Wow, Ofer called it!!

Also wow, you never had a nosebleed? I must have gotten your share (along with about 10 other people's).

Lots of things can cause it. I had something that wouldn't heal and had to endure an *extremely* painful procedure to fix it.

redsock said...

For awhile years ago, I was getting them all the time from blowing my nose.

Amy said...

Ow, yuck. That sounds awful. I knew people who got them, but I was spared, fortunately.

A Conformer said...

Ofer, you did call that. Spooky.

Nah, I call dongs all the time. I just call attention to it when I'm right...

BTW, reddick's dongs should be called reddongs.

Amy said...

Reddongs!

redsock said...

B-Ref:
Today the Angels can become the second team since 1954 to have 3 consecutive games with at least 18 hits. Meanwhile, their opponents, the Twins, can become the third team since '54 to give up 18 or more hits in three consecutive games.

L-girl said...

I was wondering when someone would bring up Red-Dick

redsock said...

yet another dp, pls

L-girl said...

I dunno, I'm gonna go with Nosebleed for a while.

Amy said...

I liked Rednose also. We could morph from that to Rudolph, as with LBJ to Lyndon.

Iridescence said...

felt kind of sorry for him with the nosebleed holding up the game (kind of embarrassing) but I guess getting your 1st dong in the big leagues will make up for that.

L-girl said...

gotta work for a while. some nerve these people have.

Amy said...

See you later, Laura. Hope it goes quickly.

Iridescence said...

"As with LBJ to Lyndon."

"President" or even "Commander-in-chief" could also work when he does something particularly awesome.

Amy said...

Bases loaded...get a DP, please.

Amy said...

Oh, shit.

Amy said...

Oh, fuck this. Let's not blow a seven run lead.

Amy said...

Everyone leaves the thread, and HH falls competely apart,

:(

A Conformer said...

Fuck, that went to hell in a hurry.

L-girl said...

shit!

Amy said...

Finally....

meuniermr said...

This is fucked up.

redsock said...

jesus. i had a small job, but heard the damage.

Amy said...

At least the White Sox tied up with NYY.

A Conformer said...

This is my first time seeing HH. I don't see anything impressive, even before this inning.

meuniermr said...

Looks like another wild, close, game in Baltimore..

redsock said...

CWS 4-3

Iridescence said...

Well on the positive side their bullpen sucks much worse that the Sox pen

Amy said...

I guess this trade looks pretty good at the moment.

L-girl said...

there's only one solution here:

RSVP!

Amy said...

YOUK! Good wheels!

Iridescence said...

must.not.squander.

Amy said...

Damn, sounded like a hit off the bat.

redsock said...

third lineout for the sox today.

meuniermr said...

At least we have the day off tomorrow so we don't have to worry about the pen as much.

redsock said...

keep the scoring streak going...

Amy said...

YES! Some RX!

redsock said...

Rx, baby!

L-girl said...

RX!

A Conformer said...

Man, Lowell is fucking hot at the plate, too. 3-run lead is much better.

L-girl said...

keep em coming!!

L-girl said...

watch reddick hit for the cycle today

Pepe Lepew said...

jesus. i had a small job, but heard the damage.

My DSL went out. I finally hooked up the modem to a jack in my bedroom that works. Old new house. Old phone lines. Garrrrr. Time to go totally wireless, methinks.

Amy said...

Is this guy Reddick for real?? WOW

A Conformer said...

Rudolph is a fucking beast.

Pepe Lepew said...

Hey, that other third basemen is pretty good, too.
Too many infielders. What a dilemma.

L-girl said...

Give up a few runs? No problem!!

Amy said...

OK, this IS fun!

Now let's keep it coming, and let's not let them score any more.

redsock said...

OH NOOOOOO

we are scoring too much - we'll have no runs left for the yankees series.

L-girl said...

SEE ALLAN??? :)

A Conformer said...

OH NOOOOOO

we are scoring too much - we'll have no runs left for the yankees series.


That is number 1 in the "dumbest things people say about baseball", me thinks.

redsock said...

he has clearly cut down on swinging at shit out of the zone. this is good.

redsock said...

That is number 1 in the "dumbest things people say about baseball", me thinks.

#2, right after defending You-Know-Who.

Amy said...

Another line drive caught? Argghh

redsock said...

8 batters in 1st
8 batters in 2nd
4 batters in 3rd
10 batters in 4th (so far)

A Conformer said...

What's amazing about this game is that the Sox have scored 11 in 4 innings, and yet they've lost at least 4 hits to good D or bad luck.

L-girl said...

he has clearly cut down on swinging at shit out of the zone. this is good.

he's trying to prove you wrong, so don't let up on him

Pepe Lepew said...

#2, right after defending You-Know-Who.

Oh, gosh. I feel stupid. Who is that?
Bud Selig?

Amy said...

Who are you talking about?

L-girl said...

That is number 1 in the "dumbest things people say about baseball", me thinks.

Men on base clog the bases

Home runs are rally killers

Pitchers judged by their W/L records

L-girl said...

G___y Li___e

Amy said...

I meant about the hitting.

I can guess who the "person not to be named 7" is. Rhymes with Griddle.

redsock said...

Gump.

L-girl said...

MORE RUNS!!!!

L-girl said...

Extra Mart!

Amy said...

he has clearly cut down on swinging at shit out of the zone. this is good.

I was asking about this conversation.

And Martinez is making it look like Tek's VOOBS will be rising.

A Conformer said...

OK, never mind about the bad luck... hahahahaha.

L-girl said...

I meant about the hitting.

LBJ. Allan was ragging on him for not walking at all. Now he is walking! Naturally Allan can take credit for that. :)

I can guess who the "person not to be named 7" is. Rhymes with Griddle.

Indeed.

redsock said...

roberts analysis of that play? martinez showed emotion. and sure enough, there he is clapping his hands.

.. okay clay, we got the 6 back. stop effing arouns.

L-girl said...

I'm loving that VOOBS stat.

ho hum, more hits and runs...

14-6

Amy said...

OMG! Either their pitching is awful or our hitting is hot!

A Conformer said...

So, was the one out Albers got the hardest hit ball off him?

redsock said...

HENDRICKSON in

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Pepe Lepew said...

Oh, THAT guy. I have repressed my memories of that guy.

Amy said...

I thought it was LBJ, but there was no prior comment I could find to be sure. Like I just came in to the middle of a private conversation!

Iridescence said...

"That is number 1 in the "dumbest things people say about baseball", me thinks."

Yeah especially since good hitting in one game is likely to lead to better hitting in future games so even as a superstition it's utterly stupid.

redsock said...

Albers!
