G11: Rays 6, Red Sox 5

Rays    - 400 001 100 - 6  5  0
Red Sox - 000 010 400 - 5 11 2
With two outs in the seventh, Scutaro singled, Pedroia homered, Martinez singled, and Youkilis homered -- and it looked like the diehards who stuck around cold, damp Fenway might be rewarded.

But no. In the eighth, Lowell led off with a single and Mike Cameron walked, but Jeremy Hermida struck out and Scutaro popped to right. And Pedroia, Martinez, and Youkilis went in order on only nine pitches in the ninth.

An error by Cameron on an easy fly ball should have ended the top of the first. Instead, it left the door open for Tampa to torment Buchholz for 44 pitches and four unearned runs.
Example
James Shields / Clay Buchholz

Small Game James at Fenway: 0-6 in six starts, 8.04 ERA and a 1.893 WHIP, having allowed 43 hits and 10 walks in 28 innings.

Dustin Pedroia (.455/.500/.636), J.D. Drew (.417/.481/.833), and David Ortiz (.391/.481/.870) have fun facing Shields.

Current members of the Rays are hitting only .222/.300/.286 against Buchholz (in 70 plate appearances).

On to the next game.

tim said...

Hey everyone! How was everyone's day? Better than the last 10 minutes I hope.

redsock said...

My day has been pretty much shitty since 12.

meunier said...

When will it start?

L-girl said...

Mine improved 30 mins ago when my new co-worker went home.

redsock said...

They said 30 minutes after the end of game one. Maybe more because of the wet field, though.

meunier said...

We got boned out of that last game, we should have been allowed to play the bottom of the 9th last night.

tim said...

lol, having fun with this new co-worker eh L?

and your day is about to get better allan, after we light up shields here.

my day is getting better already. except i'm kind of pissed the $9 bottle of wine tastes putrid. i bought an $8 bottle that was amazing, so i expected a marked improvement. although, expecting anything good for that price is grasping at straws i guess.

redsock said...

$8 wine? I need to start drinking cheaper, maybe I should know about this. Any good $6 wines, perhaps?

redsock said...

but i have recordings to transcribe, so i can't have the game in my ear.

L-girl said...

Co-worker is ok, but she is a talker. I don't come to work to talk and be talked to. I like to be in my own world.

tim said...

In canada, you're strapped to find anything with alcohol outside of shoppers drug mart for less than $8.

$8 wine was KWV - some white from south africa or something. Not amazing, but definitely palatable. We also like gazela - $8 or $9 white portguese wine with a bit of carbonation in it. That one's only like 8% or 9% though. But its damn tasty.

L-girl said...

I need to start drinking cheaper

And by cheaper, you mean less.

meunier said...

Did I read that right?

redsock said...

Actually, that wasn't what I meant.

9casey said...

You talk to us for nine innings......:)

L-girl said...

Yes, I know that. It's called "A Joke".

Benjamin said...

I get some Two Buck Chuck whenever I get to a Trader Joe's that is allowed to sell alcohol. Doesn't happen much.

fusionmouse said...

Same day. Ugly game to go with the ugly weather in beantown. Froze watching a youth soccer game today while my son's team lost 3-2.

Please Sox do something nice tonight.

L-girl said...

You know, it's perfectly ok to pay $10 or $12 for a bottle of wine that you enjoy.

meunier said...

Wait, what?? I didn't even notice that when I wrote that.

tim said...

in that case, i definitely need to start drinking cheaper.

redsock said...

i agree, theys hould have called it either after 8 or after 9, none of this in the middle shit.

and i'm pissed the mfy game got called a win after only 6 innings.

fusionmouse said...

Any oatmeal for the second game? I'd rather not see flo in the lineup.

L-girl said...

You talk to us for nine innings......:)

You don't like the sound of my voice, is that it..... :)

redsock said...

EB just put it up:

Scutaro SS
Pedroia 2B
Martinez C
Youkilis 1B
Ortiz DH
Lowell 3B
Drew RF
Cameron CF
Hermida LF

No Bot or Bard tonight.

9casey said...

fusionmouse said...

Flo's there no Beltre , Lowell at 3rd

L-girl said...

Bot is w/ Mrs Bot and the new Bot Jr

fusionmouse said...

Does that mean Bot is doing a jig to the drop kick murphys up and down the hospital corridor?

redsock said...

we are 3 GB the chokers, who won 7-3.

tim said...

Oh yeah, I have no problem paying for good wine. Most of the stuff we like is in the $15-20 range. Not a huge fan of the VQA reds, I think the Aussie/Euro ones are a lot bolder.

We've fallen in love with Prospect Winery in BC though - love their reds!

L-girl said...

Not a good April so far.

tim said...

Kotsays pitching?

tim said...

I wonder if they're wearing the same pants.

redsock said...

crawford on - here we go again.

L-girl said...

My every day wine costs about $11 bottle. It doesn't seem like "good" wine to me - that is something I can't afford on a daily basis - but I really enjoy it. Pelee Island Pinot Noir. I really like their reds.

fusionmouse said...

Mets Cards in the 15th -- scoreless. Pujols has been intentionally walked three times in the extra innings to load the bases twice bringing up a relief pitcher to bat for the cards. So far the strategy has worked.

Wild.

fusionmouse said...

A starting pitcher now batting for the Mets.

redsock said...

Mets Cards in the 15th -- scoreless

my favourite kind of game!

L-girl said...

Not even a pretend effort against Crawford

tim said...

lol - "everyday wine" - i drink beer usually, so when its wine i tend to spend a little more. but pelee island pinot you say....hmm, i'll have to check it out tomorrow.

fusionmouse said...

Damn these mfrays look like trouble this year.

L-girl said...

I never drink beer at home, only in pubs, where beer is good and wine is usually not.

redsock said...

you're pissing me off, clay.

L-girl said...

Tim, sometime this summer, steak and pinot noir at our place. Maybe in June for both our birthdays.

L-girl said...

WTF????

redsock said...

yay - defense!

tim said...

wtf. the curse of 23.

L-girl said...

I hope Mike Cameron's nickname doesn't turn out to be Butcher Boy.

tim said...

yes! i'll be living in toronto in june (school of accountancy) so its definitely do-able. we can probably get together to watch a game on a weekend or something something.

also - dinner here (well not here here - at our new place we're moving to next saturday - same building, just 2 floors up) during ASB!

redsock said...

get together to watch a game on a weekend

No one gets it, do they, L?

fusionmouse said...

This sox team so far has pretty "special" defense. : P

tim said...

wtf clay. i felt this way about you last year, then you tore it up in sep/oct, now you are pulling the same shit as you did last year.

should've shipped him to t.o. for doc.

tim said...

extra innings of a west coast game on the weekend?

redsock said...

2 arms down in the pen -- not a good night for this, laptop. get your shit together.

tim said...

fuck you clay.

L-girl said...

clay

clay clay clay

L-girl said...

No one gets it, do they, L?

We were just talking about this this morning.

Tim: weekdays only, and no Fridays.

redsock said...

damn cameron too, having out #3 clank off his glove.

L-girl said...

I gotta go, leaving work soon and not threading when I get home.

I would like to note for any bridge-jumpers out there that the Red Sox WILL win games again. I am sure of it.

tim said...

OT: The NESN feed tonight reminded me of another experience with terrible announcers in sports this afternoon. CBC's decided to provide their own coverage of the Bruins playoff series.

They've dulled down the sound of the arena/crowd so much so that all you hear basically is an overly loud announcer who can't pronounce players right, like Zdeno "Chair-a" on the Bruins. (comparable in annoyance to David OR-tiz). And his enthusiam is so dull that if you aren't watching, you don't know when a goal is scored because you don't hear the crowd at all.

I want my NESN. The Bruins announcers on there are ridiculously biased, and hilarious to listen to.

/rant.

redsock said...

so - whose gonna pitch an inning tonight? hall? scutaro? i think fy wants to at some point.

fusionmouse said...

On the bright side this all has no effect on laptops era!
:-/

redsock said...

hey,he just wanted to get a good look at their entire lineup right away -- now he knows what he's dealing with. we're cool.

redsock said...

44 pitches!

meunier said...

It's the 1st inning they could come back, remember the playoff game 2 years ago?

meunier said...

Laptop may have been fucked by the other game being suspended also, not knowing when he would pitch.

meunier said...

At least the more important Boston team already won today.

L-girl said...

At least the more important Boston team already won today.

Are you in the right place?

meunier said...

Cut me and I will bleed black and gold. I cry why the Bruins are eliminated from the playoffs.

L-girl said...

It's the 1st inning they could come back

Of course! We should be expecting it.

meunier said...

L, could you become a Naturalized Canadien citizen?

fusionmouse said...

Jimenez just pitched the Rockies first no hitter!

And the mets cards go to 17 scoreless.

redsock said...

17!! wow!!

redsock said...

we submitted our applications for citizenship soon after we passed the three year mark.

redsock said...

On to the 18th in St.L!

redsock said...

Bay is 0-for-7 with 4 K so far.

meunier said...

I'm feeling a bit slaphappy today

redsock said...

wiping

Ummmm ....

meunier said...

Get one please..

meunier said...

I'm leaving before I say anymore stupid/gross things, later.

meunier said...

Jiminez pulled off the no hitter.

Ish said...

Last night's Mets/Cardinals game, St. Louis' 2B Felipe Lopez hit a grand slam off of Raul Valdes...

Tonight in the 18th inning, Lopez was the PITCHER and Valdes was the hitter!!! He hit a ground ball to deep short, Brendan Ryan threw wide of first, Valdes ran to second base and was gunned down by Pujols, the throw taken by the third baseman.

redsock said...

That's got to be a first -- or maybe a third.

6 BB in the no-no.

Ish said...

Cardinals pitcher Kyle Loshe played LF in the top of the 18th.

Ish said...

The Lopez-to-Valdes at-bat took 10 pitches, as well.

Amy said...

Good evening. Fourth inning at 10:21 in Boston. May as well be a West Coast game.

We have good friends at this game. They must be pretty miserable between the weather and the score(s).

You think that people with tickets to tonight's game got in for the suspended game?

redsock said...

yes, they did. friday tix were no good. so they got a bonus tonight -- a crappy bonus.

redsock said...

19th now!

As you are know sick of hearing about by now, we saw 21 scoreless in Montreal in 1989. LA 1-0in 22.

Amy said...

That's what I figured. I am sure my friends are freezing and pissed off.

Ish said...

My sister is at tonight's game for her birthday, too. Although I'm curious as to whether she's still at the park or not.

redsock said...

mets got a run in the top 19

Amy said...

Papi!!

Amy said...

I just looked for the Mets game on MLB tv, but it seems our free preview is over. Oh well.

redsock said...

tiz - what happened

Amy said...

We suck.

Amy said...

Ha, it's on Fox. Silly me.

Amy said...

Pujols up with man on....

Amy said...

Runner out at second.

Amy said...

Bad call.

Amy said...

Pujols on second. Mets get a break with that call at second.

Amy said...

I think perhaps I am talking to myself....and about the Mets game. That's sad and pathetic.

Amy said...

Score tied in St Louis.

Ish said...

HAHAHAHA they freaking tied it with 2 outs... This is hilarious.

redsock said...

Tied. Wow!

9casey said...

I couldn't believe ,after they got Ludwig staling, that they pitched to Pujols, but they are the mets....

Amy said...

Two on, none out.

Ish said...

Laser Show!!! The Laser Show never ends. Although that was more of a rainbow.

9casey said...

was the no-hitter mentioned?

Amy said...

Meanwhile, back in Boston, we got a run!

redsock said...

2 on for the cards! but 2 gone

Amy said...

Mets win, 2-1.

Amy said...

Well, I don't think I have what it takes to stay up for this one. I just hope we don't lose two games in a night.

Amy said...

Nice catch, JD!

Amy said...

Good night, all.

L-girl said...

A no-hitter and a 20-inning Mets win in one day. Cool baseball day... with some huge exceptions.

L-girl said...

L, could you become a Naturalized Canadien citizen?

Just saw this, don't know if you are still here...

We will become citizens, yes. Our application is already in, we are in the queue. It's not called naturalized, it's just citizenship.

L-girl said...

Whoa. A moon shot from E-Long.

If there was anyone left in Fenway, they're leaving now.

L-girl said...

FUCK YEAH!

L-girl said...

Small game james threw 121 pitches. Yeesh.

redsock said...

6-3 is interesting -- and victor is on.

L-girl said...

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

This is going to be the comeback of the season - the whole season!

redsock said...

OMG - DONG@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

I wonder if Ish's sister is still there. I'm guessing no, but I'm hoping yes.

redsock said...

nice inning:

5-3
3U
1B
HR
1B
HR

6-3

redsock said...

nice ramram action.

dr
drew
cameron

redsock said...

6 outs to get at least 1 run. seems within the realm of possibility.

Ish said...

I just tried calling my sister and she won't answer.

redsock said...

dr. singles

meunier said...

Beltre PR for Lowell

meunier said...

Cue the Eric Clapton

L-girl said...

Meun, sorry I snapped at you before. I was fuming about the loss. I'm glad your Bruins won at least.

redsock said...

jeemer up

clapton's song "fuck the rays"?

redsock said...

two on for hermida.

meunier said...

After Midnight

redsock said...

hey scutaro: hit, pls.

L-girl said...

oh man, they have to win this one. have to!

redsock said...

pedroia, martinez, yook is what we want in the 9th, so that's good,.

meunier said...

If Wheeler has to stay out there there is a good chance he serves up a meatball.

L-girl said...

FY walk off?

redsock said...

rally time.

redsock said...

fuck no.

L-girl said...

No dong sale at V-Mart.

L-girl said...

Don trooped me.

*sigh*

Sparkling clean water

Benjamin said...

:(

meunier said...

Team meeting time, we are getting close to getting realistically eliminated from the playoffs here.

redsock said...

we might be out for 2011, too, if we lose tomorrow.

redsock said...

magic # for red sox elimination: 148 - with 151 games to go.

Ish said...

My sister left after the FIFTH inning.

tim said...

well at least we have the bruins. this team is too far gone. may as well concede the east to the jays tonight.

L-girl said...

well at least we have the bruins. this team is too far gone. may as well concede the east to the jays tonight.

the funny thing is, the nyy troll (who is obviously reading the thread) probably thinks you are serious.
