G157: Blue Jays 8, Red Sox 7

Blue Jays - 411 010 100 - 8 11  0
Red Sox - 110 000 050 - 7 14 1
The Jays struck for four runs in the first for the second night in a row.

Boston rallied furiously with two outs in the eighth, highlighted by J.D. Drew's three-run home run to right-center (that changed the score from 8-4 to 8-7) and had runners on first and second with two outs in the ninth, but Kevin Youkilis was caught looking at strike three.

Toronto smacked six home runs, including three by Adam Lind. Buchholz (5-8-7-1-4, 79) gave up the first one (to Jose Bautista) on his first pitch of the night, and allowed five of the six.

The first three Jays against Clay: HR, 1B, HR. It was the first time a Sox pitcher had allowed two home runs in an inning before recording an out since John Burkett allowed bombs to Jason Giambi and Bernie Williams in the first inning on July 21, 2002. The last player to belt three taters in a game against Boston was Frank Thomas (all off Tim Wakefield, on September 15, 1996).
Example
Ricky Romero (4.28, 102 ERA+) / Clay Buchholz (3.21, 147 ERA+)

A win tonight clinches the wild card.

And the Red Sox have seriously abused the rookie Romero in four starts this year: 26 hits and 17 walks in 17.1 innings. He's got an 8.83 ERA and a 2.481 WHIP. Boston has hit .377/.506/.652/1.158 against him.

& @ 10 PM: Rangers/Angels.

Too bad about that DP...

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
Moriarty: Crap!

Amy said...

Maddy is on the roof deck near the Budweiser sign. Me thinks she has had a few Buds herself.

redsock said...

RALLY JUICE, BABY!!!!

andy said...

What sucks about me going to the playoffs is that I will not have my new android phone that comes out the following weekend. That would make texting to the intertube more easier. But yes I will be sending in updates.

redsock said...

s1c said...

I smell walk off

Amy said...

Well, I am happily eating my words. Let's see if we can get a walkoff in the 9th.

redsock said...

BOT in

Amy said...

S1C, I had no idea what that quote was from, but it was perfect. I googled it, and I don't know the movie.

redsock said...

yoooooooook scoooooooooop

redsock said...

now i don't want #4.

nick said...

Wow. After putting emma to bed I was listening to the radio while washing dishes. I turned it off to go turn on the TV and just missed the Fiery Dong.

2 outs. good good.

Ish said...

I no longer want to see Lind hit another dong.

Ish said...

That works!

Amy said...

At least he did not get a HR this time.

s1c said...

S1C, I had no idea what that quote was from, but it was perfect. I googled it, and I don't know the movie.

You don't know Kelly's Heroes?

Donald Sutherland, Don Rickles, Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas, O'connor. A cast of thousands!

nick said...

Listening to them go on and on and on about breakfast cerials, I thought of you guys.

Lint (sic) moved into that one--not on purpose, but ooh.

L-girl said...

Because you know how much I love cereal?

Amy said...

OK, score runs!!

Nope, never heard of it, but perhaps I should rent it.

Amy said...

I love cereal.

(We have not had a food thread in so long.)

nick said...

ug. cereals. that's how it's spelled. Do you? Weetabix?

redsock said...

let's go seabass.

redsock said...

1-800-54-SEABASS

Amy said...

No, I love raisin bran.

Amy said...

Why is Reddick at bat?

nick said...

The Chronicles of Reddick shall include mighty bounty.

L-girl said...

I love cereal. I have to really try not to eat it. I especially love it at night, before bed. Not a great time to eat, so in recent years I broke the habit. But left to my own desires, I would eat a bowl of cereal w/ fruit every night.

s1c said...

C'mon kid, wrap one down the line

Amy said...

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I could eat it for dinner.

L-girl said...

mmmm, raisin bran...

(And Rice Krispies, Special K, and many others...)

Amy said...

Shit. Why didn't Gonzalez bat???

redsock said...

bah - we like to do it with 2 outs

Amy said...

I am not a fan of hot cereal, however.

L-girl said...

OK, fuck you Reddick we'll do it without you. No problem. Come on Lyndon.

nick said...

Rather unsuccessfully, I've decided to reduce my dairy intake. Going with almond or soy milk when I eat cereal.

dammit. I need to bray Youk's name into the night!

L-girl said...

I love oatmeal. And it's so good for you. I eat it often for breakfast, with banana.

L-girl said...

Funny time for a food discussion!

Amy said...

Tying run on!

L-girl said...

TMB!!!

redsock said...

YES

Amy said...

Yeah, seeking comfort with comfort food.

nick said...

whoa. I am having some spelling difficulties. There is no variation of LBJ that is spelled "Youk".

Thank you, Lyndon!

s1c said...

I love oatmeal. And it's so good for you. I eat it often for breakfast, with banana.

Cinnamon raisin myself

redsock said...

SB would be a tad risky.....

L-girl said...

Allan eats gluten-free cereal w/ Silk. Seems to enjoy it a lot.

s1c said...

Time for a a 98 in 104 out from FY

Amy said...

Heart is pounding.

redsock said...

FY dong = 9-8.

L-girl said...

Cinnamon raisin myself

Yum. But mine is the whole grain kind that doesn't come flavoured. "Steel cut oats". Takes like 30 mins to make.

redsock said...

it worked for drew

Amy said...

Shit, DO had me truped.

L-girl said...

OK, 2 outs, our favourite time to rally. Here we go.

Amy said...

Down to VMart.

s1c said...

Shit, he hits it to the biggest part of the park.

Oh, well, time for a blue light special!!!

redsock said...

clean up on aisle 9.

L-girl said...

blue light walk-off, here we go...

redsock said...

time to become a true sock

though there is no rain

s1c said...

Yum. But mine is the whole grain kind that doesn't come flavoured. "Steel cut oats". Takes like 30 mins to make.

See there is thing spice called cinnamon and these dried up grape things called raisin. You add those in while making it.

Amy said...

Scoring position!

L-girl said...

Alright! 67

nick said...

5-11

L-girl said...

s1c, ha ha ha, I didn't even think of that! DUH

I don't keep either in the house. But we always have bananas so I throw those in.

nick said...

you don't keep cinnamon in the house?

L-girl said...

5-11 ?

redsock said...

have not had a nervous knot in my stomach for awhile, better get used to it.

L-girl said...

No. Never use it.

Amy said...

Nick, you may still get to yell Youk!

nick said...

I will bray for Youk.

L-girl said...

winning run on and yoooook up!!!

redsock said...

yook dong = 10-8 and a celebration!

s1c said...

Time to be the hero Youk.

nick said...

they said the Sox were 4-10 w/ RISP tonight.

Amy said...

That looked low to me.

L-girl said...

gotcha 5/11

Amy said...

A YK miracle by Youk would be appropriate.

nick said...

yes. /. /.

Amy said...

Phew.

redsock said...

just jew it

Amy said...

Full count, two out. Classic.

s1c said...

Runners going with the pitch a double will win it!!!

Amy said...

LOL, Allan.

L-girl said...

This knot in my stomach is classic too!

Amy said...

OH FUCK

L-girl said...

s1c said...

too close to be taking youk

nick said...

fuck.

Amy said...

So close, and yet...so far.

Ish said...

Yup! Ofer and my first trips to Fenway were VERY similar!

Amy said...

Youk clearly did not do enough atoning yesterday.

L-girl said...

almost dirty but still sparkling clean water.

*sigh*

tim said...

FUCK!

redsock said...

musta been seriously fooled. he did not say a word to the ump.

seemed low, btw.

Amy said...

Well, at least they made it exciting. Better than being a rout.

L-girl said...

Nice threading with you all tonight, it's been a long time for me. Tuning up for the post-season!

Good night!

tim said...

btw, HI all!

redsock said...

btw, HI all!

Tim wins post of the night.

Ish said...

What L said goes for me too!

nick said...

Amy said...

Yes, a fun thread tonight. We all need to get ready for the post-season, just like the players!

See ya next time.

redsock said...

Re the ALDS:

Gotta buy the fifth of JD next Monday.

redsock said...

TEX: 00
LAA: 11

redsock said...

matty: looking at my contest sheet, the sox now need to go 5-0 for you to win. seems unlikely.

tim said...

Was in class today for most of this, following on GDGD. Got home to set up my fancy new TV and saw the 8-7 score and followed right until Yook's backwards-K when I posted here =)

Tomorrow I'll definitely be threadin' - in HD!

redsock said...

TEX: 000 1
LAA: 110 2

Jere said...

Three outs from the playoffs.

Jere said...

One out away now--MLB Network showing the game.

Jere said...

In

SoSock said...

Clinched.
We're in.

Now, let's play at least a few decent games to get going into the PS.
Although it does sound as thouigh this a pretty good game tonight.

Jeff Polman said...
