G154: Yankees 3, Red Sox 0

Red Sox - 000 000 000 - 0 2 1
Yankees - 000 001 02x - 3 7 0
Sabathia (7-1-0-2-8, 96) clearly outpitched Dice (7-6-1-5-3, 115), although the game was only 1-0 -- a Robinson Cano home run that barely cleared the left field fence -- when the starters left.

New York got two runs off Billy Wagner in the eighth, after a missed catch error by Chris Woodward on a rundown of Brett Gardner off third base. Nick Swisher walked to start the inning and Gardner pinch-ran. Gardner took second on a wild pitch right before Cano struck out. With Melky Cabrera batting, Gardner stole third. Wagner ended up hitting the Dud. Wagner's second pitch to Jose Molina got away from Victor Martinez. He got to it quickly and Boston had Gardner caught off third, but Woodward could not hold onto the baseball. Molina then walked to load the bases. Derek Jeter sasahed for the second out, but Johnny Damon blooped Wagner's 35th of the inning into short right for two runs.

The Yankees blew an excellent scoring opportunity in the fifth. Jeter singled and Damon and Mark Teixeira walked to load the bases. Alex Rodriguez dribbled the ball maybe 15 feet down the first base line. Martinez went out, gloved it, slipped a bit turning around, then dove towards the plate, getting his glove on the dish right before Jeter slid in. Hideki Matsui fouled out to Martinez and Swisher fouled out to Lowell, who made an amazing basket catch down by the tarp.

Sabathia retired the first 11 Red Sox until Martinez walked in the fourth. Lowell began the fifth with a ground ball single into center. CC then KKK'd the side; Lowell stole second (!!!) when Rocco Baldelli fanned for the second out.

Kevin Youkilis was hit with a pitch in both the seventh and ninth innings. Mariano Rivera got the first two outs in the ninth, but Martinez singled to right -- extending his hitting streak to 25 games. He too second on DI and third on a wild pitch before Yook was plunked. Lowell struck out to end the game.

When it looked like Boston might end up with only one hit, Fox had a couple of tidbits. The last one-hitter in a Red Sox/Yankees game was Mike Mussina's near-perfect game at Fenway on September 2, 2001. The last Yankees one-hitter pitched against the Red Sox in New York was on August 9, 1992, when Sam Militello went seven innings (Fox did not mention it was his major league debut).
Example
Daisuke Matsuzaka (6.80, 69 ERA+) / CC Sabathia (3.31, 134 ERA+)

Jeemer is now back with the Sox (?), but he won't pitch this weekend regardless.

tim said...

Ugh, can't find a stream anywhere and haven't bought TV yet.

Time to call rogers to schedule a hookup appointment and argue with them about their $50 installation fee.

A fee which I refuse to pay, because the only reason they have to come out here is because they themselves chose to deactivate the cable going to the TV area when they hooked up the internet back in Jan.

Fucking thieves.

L-girl said...

I've gone to that mat over that installation fee too.

I can't thread today, but I'm trying to listen while working.

redsock said...

Castig just called Jose Molina "Varitek".

redsock said...

He also had great praise for how Tim McCarver stays up on everything happening in baseball, so "current ... does a great job".

meuniermr said...

Why is Papi in the lineup today?
I would have given the DH to JD Drew.

meuniermr said...

Listening to the radio b/c I can't stand McClusterfuck

redsock said...

So tomorrow is the big announcer switch? Both broadcasts will have one Sox and one MFY announcer?

L will answer that age old question: Can you experience a ball game with the radio on mute?

meuniermr said...

Are they doing it on ESPN too?

/GDGD for the win actually?

Dr. Jeff said...

Checking in...led the day with a 5K running race at the "Whole Enchilada Festival" here in Las Cruces. So now I can feel good about drinking beer all afternoon....

A win would be nice!

redsock said...

Tomorrow's game at 1, so it should be NESN.

meuniermr said...

So will they do the announcer Chinese fire drill with NESN/YES as well?

/I won't be watching it, I will be watching the Patriots-Falcons game.

redsock said...

No, I don't think so. I'm not even sure why the radio is doing it.

meuniermr said...

I guess leaning into curveballs is an intangible.

redsock said...

HAHAH F U A-HOLE!

meuniermr said...

LOL A-Rod caught cheating on the basepaths again.

Jake of All Trades said...

Thanks, Slappy!

redsock said...

Unassisted Blue Light DP.

SoSock said...

Damn, just have a few minutes.
Had to check in and say

CC IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER!
CC IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER!
CC IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER!
CC IS PITCHING A NO-HITTER!

Hope that works.
Beat these dicks.
Please

redsock said...

sjeskey said...

redsock said...

redsock said...

wow -- damn fine play by v-mart

redsock said...

and again, on a popup.

tek doesn't make that slappy play!

SoSock said...

Wow, did I just see that?
Jeter out at home. But, but, he's Jeter! You have to let him score!

SoSock said...

And now a damn po-up!
Wiggle, Dice, wiggle!

redsock said...

bases loaded and no outs

AND THE YANKEES DO NOT SCORE

making 3 outs on 5 pitches


(DOCTOR!!!!!!!!!)

Jake of All Trades said...

Phew?!?!

SoSock said...

Hot damn!
I climbed out of the shower just in time to catch all 3 of those outs.
I am one happy camper

redsock said...

very casual by the doctor!

now i wanna see run(s)!

Dr. Jeff said...

That was amazing.

redsock said...

and the yankees hit about 15 feet of fair balls in those 3 outs.

Kevin said...

Haven't been threading thus far this game, but DAMN that was an incredible escape act last inning.

redsock said...

bunt? nah, FY is telling tito to keep his eyes open for the upcoming laser show

Kevin said...

Shit

meuniermr said...

Not a homer in any other place.

SoSock said...

maybe not

S'alright.
After that last Houdini act, I'm feeling good about this one. Wish I could stay, but I'm getting culturefied tonight.
Piedmont Wind Symphony perfomance at the synagogue tonight.
All Jewish composers.
We'll see :)

SHIT!
Still good though. We WILL win this one

redsock said...

fox pbp guy: "october is always when jeter is at his level best"

actually, his regular season numbers are better.

redsock said...

mccarver refers to 9/11 as "nine one one". who the fuck does that?

Kevin said...

Holy fuck Lowell is slow

redsock said...

slowell.

Kevin said...

Ugh

I'm really getting sick of only having one fucking hit

redsock said...

wagner up for shemp?

Dr. Jeff said...

Dice still looking good. Esp. against Texiera

redsock said...

6 hits and 5 walks and 1 HBP from dice. and the dong. he's been very lucky.

redsock said...

Dice's first OTT.

Kevin said...

Gotta be happy with Dice-K, 7 innings of 1 run ball is great.

Now if only we could score some motherfucking runs

Edward Lee said...

6 hits and 5 walks and 1 HBP from dice. and the dong. he's been very lucky.

Two hits were IF hits and a third a result of defensive miscommunication.

redsock said...

true. good results, for sure, but still too many baserunners.

Kevin said...

The walks definitely could be a problem, but for now I'll take it.

redsock said...

dp pls

redsock said...

good fucking lord.

Kevin said...

Well that was a weird-ass play

redsock said...

YOU JUST WALKED JOSE FUCKING MOLINA, FOR FUCK'S SAKE. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?

redsock said...

that's some clutch SASAHE

Kevin said...

And now he Ks Jeter

Kevin said...

Shit

Dr. Jeff said...

GRIM.

redsock said...

damon gets a "jeter" hit. so i think jeter gets credit for that, or .75 of an RBI or something

redsock said...

been drinking a lot of water an iced tea today. i think i've gone to piss more often than fox has shown jeter in the dugout.

Kevin said...

Well, at least we have the good part of our lineup up.

SCORE FUCKING RUNS

redsock said...

top of the order against fruitbat.

redsock said...

i hear jeter struck out so the yankees would get only 2 in the inning (he willed damon to get a bloop) and rivera would still be able to get a save. amazingly selfless teammate. we are blessed to watch him.

redsock said...

25

redsock said...

gimme some rx!

redsock said...

IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?

Kevin said...

Fuck

Way to waste a great start, bats

redsock said...

nope.

Amy said...

Sorry I missed the thread. Sorry we lost...again.

SoSock said...

Late night semi-coherent comment -
RS - if you pissed more often than FOX showed Jeter, you need an IV of fluids - STAT!

Losing to the Yankees sucks.
Affect the postseason, not affect the postseason.
I don't care, it still SUCKS!

Bartman said...

"Sasahed"??

L-girl said...

SASAHE

Jere said...

And the New York Yankees are Al East Division champs.

Hey can I buy a hat with a picture of Jeter reacting to seeing the same hat on it? Because that's really the most important thing.
