G1: Red Sox 9, Yankees 7

Yankees - 020 300 200 - 7 12  1
Red Sox - 010 013 31x - 9 10 0
After retiring the first five batters on 13 pitches, Beckett gave up solo dongs to Dumbo and Granderson -- and then singles to Swisher and Gardner. CI tangibly grounded out to end the second.

Youkilis doubled to start the second and Beltre brought him in with a one-out sac fly to deep center.

The bottom of the order got to Beckett in the fourth. Cano doubled and two outs later, Swisher walked. Then Gardner and Jeter singled -- and pulled somewhat of a surprise double steal. Beckett couldn't get the third out in the fifth and was pulled with two men on: 4.2-8-5-3-1, 94/54.

Two-out singles -- all crisp line drives -- by Drew, Cameron, and Scutaro brought in a fifth-inning run. An error moved the runners up, but Ellsbury struck out looking with runners at second and third. CC lost his command in the sixth. FY walked, Victor doubled into the left field corner, and Yook smoked a triple over Swisher's head into the right field corner. With one out, Beltre's single to Cano's right tied the game at 5-5. But New York came right back in the seventh. Ramirez put two guys on and Okajima let them come around to score.

The Sox took the lead after the stretch. Scutaro singled off Park and Pedroia homered to left. When Yook doubled, Marte came in and wild pitched him to third. Then Dumbo's passedballa (!!) gave Boston its first lead of the night.

In the eighth, Bard allowed a two-out walk, but retired Teixeira on an FC. In the home half against Joba, Cameron singled with one out and Scutaro walked. With two outs, Pedroia singled to right to make it 9-7.

In the ninth, Papelbon retired Slappy and Cano, then allowed a two-out single to Dumbo. He got Granderson to ground to third for the final out.

Beckett, RamRam and maybe Jeemer were shaky, and there were no real fielding gems. Damn shame we can't hit/score.

Whoo-hoo!

SoSock said...

Hey! Somebody flipped the switch a little early. Hate those premature incidents, ya know.....

tim said...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, baseball season! t-minus 8 hours roughly.

winstons first season - let the birth of this little puppy and entrance into our lives be a hex on the MFY for years to come!

Jere said...

Let the 6 AD baseball season begin! (6th year of our lord*)


*Dave Roberts?

L-girl said...

Curse of the Winston!

Jere, love the sacrilege, very appropriate to the day.

redsock said...

MLB.com's new scoreboard page looks like absolute shit.

Section 36 said...

Let's get underway!

accudart said...

Go Sox Go!

redsock said...

NYDN's Bill Madden picks Red Sox (96-66) to win East over Yankees (93-69) and Rays (88-74).

redsock said...

NYDN has 28 reasons why the Yankees will win their 28th title this year. This first one?

1. They're still the Yankees.

Well, that convinces me! But maybe you are not swayed so easily:

2. Derek Jeter is in his contract year.
[So he's older. And?]

5. Roy Halladay is eating cheesesteaks.
[The Jays were going to challenge NY? Halladay in Philly would seem to argue in favour of the *NL* in the WS.]

7. A.J. Burnett still has something to prove.
[That he's not an inbred hillbilly? Good luck!]

21. They aren't the Mets.
[Neither are the other 28 MLB teams.]

28. The hunger is still there.
[CC agrees with this!]

A Conformer said...

I will probably be in Professor Thom's tonight, so I won't be able to thread. But it should be pretty damn fun (and crowded) down there.
Go Sox!

redsock said...

Slight change to the lineups I posted this AM. Beltre and Drew have been switched, breaking up the LHs.

Pepe Lepew said...

Are we ready to play ball!?

Bonjour, all!

Pepe Lepew said...

SI picked Red Sox third. >:(

Ish said...

Oh hi, everyone! Out and about with a couple of stops to make and then home in time for the first pitch. Woo hoo!

I've been pretty well engrossed with hockey lately but damn, I've got baseball fever.

L-girl said...

Ofer, it's great you get to watch the game in the same time zone!

I may have to listen w/o threading tonight. I'll have to see how work goes. I'll try to pop in now and again.

Ish said...

A friend of mine from Twitter who has season tickets sent me up a couple for the Dodgers game on 6/19. I'm really excited. Straightaway center, right next to the batters eye. I'll be able to see Manny again!

Pepe Lepew said...

Ish, did you hear Canada beat the U.S. for the gold medal in hockey? :)

Sabres games are now banned in my household because there is entirely too much swooning going on over Ryan Miller.

SoSock said...

DAMN! Last minute ice cream thing at my sister's. And since I don't participate in all the Jesus stuff and the ham dinner with the rest of them earlier, I'll be hexed if I skip this also. Oh well, I'll be watching there and should be home by the 2nd or 3rd inning. Screw should be, WILL be. Gotta have my JoS fix on opening day!

andy said...

I'm CUMMMMMMMMMIIIINNNNGGGGGG!!!

Hello Twenty Ten Red Sox this is only a game but if you lose I will punch you in the ear.

andy said...

Earthquake was me being happy that this is all about to happen.

Lord Lynch said...

Good evening all. Even though jolly old England has a public holiday tomorrow, I'm not going to make it through.

Happy New Season to you all.

redsock said...

Work has thinned out. Still shit to do, but it can wait and then carried over to Monday.

Play Ball.

s1c said...

Sox win 99 games sweep Twins, Sweep the Angels beat the Phillies in 6.

Lester wins the Cy Young with a 21-4 record and a 3.49 ERA.

CC chokes on a chicken bone and goes on the DL for 30 days.

Youk knocks in 135 runs, wins a gold glove.

LBJ steals 101 bases, FY hits .318, On fire gets hammered everyday for not showing fire by the Media but is loved by JOS.

Amy said...

PLAY BALL!!!

Amy said...

PEDRO!

redsock said...

On fire gets hammered everyday

You know, he has 0 RBI right now.

0!!!

Edward Lee said...

This SportScience guy on ESPN blows.

Fenway gives up 1.30 HR/g, while the average ballpark gives up 1.07 HR/g. Ergo, Fenway is a home run hitter's park.

Brilliant.

Amy said...

I miss him....

redsock said...

I'd like to see him now. MLBtv still holding off.

Amy said...

Glad to see Tek is catching for him.

Patrick said...

mlb audio just shit the bed on me. I want to hear the first pitch!

Amy said...

Sorry, Allan. I assumed they were showing NESN.

Ish said...

Pedro, this whole throwing out the first pitch thing is WEIRD.

redsock said...

On now. No choice but your friend Jon.

THERE HE IS!!

Pepe Lepew said...

This year, I got XM Radio, so no more listening to Joe Morgan or Rick Sutcliffe during ESPN Sox games. Woo hoo!

Amy said...

I am so happy baseball is here. Must mean summer is almost here also.

Patrick said...

Anyone else doing MLB audio? The feed isn't loading for me.

redsock said...

Nice to "see" everyone all together again!

Lord Lynch said...

Gots to go folks.. Have a great night. Hope it goes well...

Ish said...

The coolest part of this season: I'm sitting in the living room, on the couch, with my shiny netbook. Well, fingerprinty netbook.

redsock said...

i may need a netbook too, depending on how my ancient laptop works on tuesday. i cleared everything off of it, but it may be too creaky.

Patrick said...

damnit. I can't hear : (

chief said...

New Englanders apparently getting a choice between ESPN and NESN. I wonder how ESPN's ratings will be in NE.

Ish said...

Best $400 I've ever spent. I think.

Kevin said...

1 P,1 O to start the season? I'll take that.

Amy said...

Good night, Lord. Good to see you.

Ish said...

ESPN2 is blacked out here.

Patrick said...

YAY! I can hear!

nick said...

wow! just made it back with seconds to spare. 1 out.

Amy said...

I am not going to check to see if ESPN is showing the game here; Harvey might argue for a more neutral venue....

Amy said...

1-2-3!

redsock said...

7 pitches - 3 outs.

I like it.

johngoldfine said...

Never heard it before: it's SCOOT-er-o, not Scoo-TAR-o?

Edward Lee said...

I like seven-pitch innings.

Patrick said...

I'm enjoying the Giant Glass commercial now, but the nostalgia will turn sour around replay #12

Amy said...

Definitely SCOOT-aro, JGF.

redsock said...

anyone else using this new "atbat" thing at mlb instead of gameday? it looks cool.

Pepe Lepew said...

Ish, you HAVE to get an iPad. They're all the rage!

If you don't have an iPad, well, then you're just not worth spit!

Pepe Lepew said...

Is it my imagination, or has CC put on weight?

Patrick said...

I think I'm watching the atbat thing with my audio.

The batters look like their from virtual fighter, they're so polygony (new word)

nick said...

I see I double-posted w/o confirmation from blogger as it sat there w/ leave your comment. Now it didn't post for me on safari, but said it did. maybe it's blogger...

what's FY doing channeling Tek?

redsock said...

alright, got sox radio with espn. that'll be easier on the ears.

Pepe Lepew said...

McNabb to the Washington Name Not to be typed?

Ish said...

I'd rather have an iPhone.

tim said...

Hellllooooo JOS!!!!!

Just finished plowing through a plate of crab legs and lobster, delicious.

There was a group of New Brunswickers with a trailer full of seafood selling it for dirt cheap this afternoon in Waterloo, so we loaded up.

Amy said...

Well, CC has thrown more pitches than Beckett already.

Amy said...

Ahh, Tim talking about food. Must be the season has started!!

Ish said...

"New Brunswickers"... LOL. File me under the "I didn't know they were called that" list.

nick said...

Alright...catching up, settling in.

HI Everybody!

So, Amy, what are you wearing?

tim said...

lol, i dunno what they're called - sounds right to me!

redsock said...

SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP

Ish said...

It makes sense to me too, Tim, now that I think about it.

Amy said...

Nick, I worked long and hard on my wardrobe. :) And much as I would like to taunt and tease you with salacious images, I am just wearing jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt.

Edward Lee said...

Filthy 2-1 change by Beckett to Rodriguez.

nick said...

Is it a sox shirt? Some other blog I can't be bothered to remember at the moment had a post about how to dress for the game...and how to not overdo it. Sounds like your in the clear.

redsock said...

espn must have gone 8-10 minutes before showing jeter again. is that a record?

Kevin said...

Fuck

Patrick said...

ARGHHHHHH

redsock said...

fucking cheap dumbo shit

Amy said...

Oh, fuck. That pesky Pesky pole.

nick said...

fucking fuckwadded fucker. taking the easy way out.

Ish said...

Fenway dong.

Amy said...

Too cold for a Sox shirt. They are all short sleeves. I can't wear short sleeves til the temps hit 80.

Pepe Lepew said...

Boooo!

I am wearing my Ellsbury t-shirt.

Kevin said...

Double fuck

Amy said...

ARGGGHHH

Trying to get used to Blogger again. Reaching back into my mind: What to do and what not to do with "conflicting edits."

Amy said...

Not liking this inning.

Patrick said...

Thank goodness Brett Gardener is there for a break (crossing fingers)

Amy said...

Conflicting edits---hit the back key, not refresh, IIRC.

redsock said...

refesh on conflicting.

...

yeah this relying on pitching is great, fuck you theo!

Patrick said...

buh

Kevin said...

Um, can we get a third out here, Josh?

Ish said...

This whole Ellsbury #2 thing is going to take some getting used to.

nick said...

emma just said, "I kinda wanna watch something else." "uh, no kid." but I'm almost inclined to agree at this moment.

redsock said...

Totally Tangible.

RSVP.

Amy said...

FINALLY. Damn, what's with Beckett?

Amy said...

YOUKKKK!!!!

Patrick said...

YOOOOUUUUKKK!!!!

redsock said...

baltimore dong.

Amy said...

Let's shift that momentum back.

redsock said...

productive cough

Amy said...

We score!

Patrick said...

That'll do, Adrian. That'll do.

Ish said...

Sabathier.

Edward Lee said...

Interesting putout by Granderson.

All things considered, that was a pretty good AB by Ortiz.

redsock said...

got an ellsburian jump on that one ....

nick said...

good to get one on. flashy catch. ready for some (on) fire.

redsock said...

selfish beltre drives in the run so drew is left with no one on base.

L-girl said...

Yay! First run of 2010.

Back to work...

Ish said...

"Steven Tyler will sing 'God Bless America' and there will be a special musical guest later on."

I miss the days when the baseball game was enough.

Patrick said...

These guys are really working the count. I'm digging it.

redsock said...

was thinking i would get to do some work after the game -- not at this pace.

...

and jd wins over some more fans...

Edward Lee said...

"selfish beltre drives in the run so drew is left with no one on base."

Guy's playing for a contract, you know.

nick said...

NJ looks like a yankee.

nick said...

Watney Watch!

Ish said...

Unrelated to baseball: Next time I go to the store I should pick up some frozen blueberries to put in my beer.

redsock said...

GIDP!

Kevin said...

Timely DP

redsock said...

CCameron

Patrick said...

HURRAY FOR NEW PLAYERS!

Amy said...

Uch, hate ARod.

Kevin said...

Ugh

Shit call

nick said...

I'd go w/ safe. :-(

redsock said...

curse of lugo's uniform?

nick said...

that's right. I emoticoned that shit.

Edward Lee said...

Ellsbury not getting on base makes me a sad panda.

Amy said...

Beckett is not the dominator tonight....

Pepe Lepew said...

So close!

Meunier said...

I am back, I have moved to Sacramento and so I am about to eat a ham.

nick said...

I hear that's what one does when they move to Sacramento.

redsock said...

strand him, jb

nick said...

nice strike there! 1 more....

redsock said...

fuckin yankee joe behind the dish.

nick said...

fucknuggets.

Kevin said...

Crap

redsock said...

sox radio (not joe, the lame-o kid) says that was up and in -- replay has it a hair above jetes's belt.

nick said...

lugo would've had that.

Kevin said...

Dammit Beckett, get the out

redsock said...

schonejhsdhfgdgd up

Ish said...

Beer: drank.
Sugar Maple liqueur: drank.
Bailey's mint chocolate: drank.

And somehow I'm still pissed right now at this game.

redsock said...

Schoeneweis.

Scho
ene
weis

Meunier said...

I wonder if this early opening night caused Beckett to miss a spring training start he would normally get?

redsock said...

wtf is this shit?

Pepe Lepew said...

Dang! Oh, well, have to go. My Easter ham is done!

Kevin said...

Cock

nick said...

that freakin' sucks, but it was nicely done. bastardfucks.

I'm ready for runs...and wine.

Meunier said...

Why did we sign Lackey anyways? Everyone knows that he has a terrible track record at Fenway.

redsock said...

i wish i had wine.

jb pc: 7-29-13 25 = 74
cc pc: 13-22-15 = 50

Meunier said...

I'm not holding out much hope for winning the next game due to that reason.

Amy said...

FY almost hit that ump...

My computer crashed right at that double steal. Guess my computer is a Sox fan.

nick said...

Too early to crap on the next game, Meunier. we're busy crapping on this one.

redsock said...

don't do that diving shit again, fy.

Amy said...

Ish, you seem to have changed your attitude towards alcohol!

redsock said...

it seems meunier raided the lord's everything-is-shot-to-shit stash of pills.

redsock said...

lester is pitching the next game. we'll lose on wednesday.

Edward Lee said...

"don't do that diving shit again, fy."

To avoid breaking a finger, sure. But it probably maximized his chances of reaching safely -- he reached the bag at full extension without sliding on the dirt, and he avoided getting tagged by Sabathia.

SoSock said...

Damn ice cream. OK, OK, the ice cream was good, the shit on the TV screen was not. Fucking Yankees......

redsock said...

there may be dueling studies, but i thought that diving always slows you down -- sprinting straight through is quicker.

nick said...

WW.

nick said...

I don't know if I've ever heard ARod speak. That's not what I expected.

SoSock said...

Beer Friday night...Wine last night..... Frm the looks of this game, liquor might be in order tonight. Bottle of Crown maybe?

Amy said...

At least Beckett is getting ARod out.

But not too many others...

redsock said...

mfy 2-3-4 hitters are 0-for-8 with a walk

redsock said...

Top 4 are 1-for-11. Sigh.

SoSock said...

SASAHE!

Edward Lee said...

"there may be dueling studies, but i thought that diving always slows you down -- sprinting straight through is quicker."

If you suck at it, it is. While you're running at full speed, you want your last step to launch you horizontally so that you touch the bag before your chest hits the dirt. You can really fly through the air with that last step.

Most people don't know how to do it correctly and end up falling over and sliding 5 feet in the dirt.

SoSock said...

I'll be surprised if Beckett comes back out for the....nevermind

nick said...

bye bye beckett (sigh).

redsock said...

pfft.

Amy said...

Not getting enough of them out to make it through the inning...

redsock said...

a diceian line: 4.2-8-5-3-1, 94/54

redsock said...

... long wait for the fat man ...

redsock said...

is that boggs on the mound?

SoSock said...

Great.....

nick said...

deee....feh.

redsock said...

who was that in the pen?

redsock said...

let's go, flo.

nick said...

be a bad man, Papi.

nick said...

That was bad, man. Papi.

nick said...

.083 team BA.

Amy said...

I know it's just the first game, but I sure wish our team looked better, even in the first game.

redsock said...

cameron = 5-3?

score, not a grounder.

SoSock said...

Bullpen - Atchison? Or maybe Topeka or Santa Fe....(sorry)

redsock said...

rally time.

nick said...

If scuts wants to hit a rally-killer I'd be OK with it...this time.

Amy said...

Two runs!

Love those two out rallies....

nick said...

bastard run-scoring non-rally-killing machine.

redsock said...

keep on doing it.

Kevin said...

Bottom of the order's not looking too bad.

More runs please :)

SoSock said...

SCOOT-a-ro, or Scoo-TAR-o ?

Edward Lee said...

Damon woulda 3-hopped the throw to third base and held the runners.

SoSock said...

LBJ,LBJ,LBJ!
