G16: Rangers 3, Red Sox 0

Rangers - 000 000 300 - 3  7  0
Red Sox - 000 000 000 - 0 6 2
Buchholz (6.2-6-3-1-10, 114) had allowed only three baserunners through the first six innings, but was hit hard to start the seventh. Two doubles and a single in the span of nine pitches put two Texas runs on the board. The 10 strikeouts was a career high.

Boston could do nothing with Wilson or the two Darrens (O'Day and Oliver). Only one Red Sox runner got to second base -- that was Victor Martinez (who had two singles and a walk) in the seventh inning.
Example
C.J. Wilson / Clay Buchholz

Buchholz has pitched quite poorly in his two starts this year. He has a 1.80 ERA, because only two of his seven runs allowed have been earned. In 10 innings, he has given up 10 hits and walked six batters. (And yet his 1.600 WHIP is second best among the starters, which is pretty clear evidence of how shitty the starters have been.)

Teagarden is 0-for-18 this season, though he does have 3 walks and was HBP once.

redsock said...

No doghouse that I know of.

Tiz could only PH (and not take the field) or replace Lowell at DH. Lowell batted with 2 outs and no one on in both the 7th and 10th. No need for Tiz there.

Martinez was probably given a complete day off.

Kurt Suzuki with the 3-run dong off CC in the 1st. CC went 8 for the CG. 2 solo dongs for NY.

redsock said...

Zenslinger said...

Doesn't mean we have to Mmmm mmm return the favor!

Zenslinger said...

Looks like vintage Clay.

I mean the good vintage.

HH has OCD with a guy on 1B

L-girl said...

I just went to look for Tala, found her in a hole she dug, all guilty-looking when she saw me. Now we have two holes in the dirt, one for each dog.

Amy said...

Well, it's not 4-0 yet in this game. That's good news.

redsock said...

sexy curve

Amy said...

Is she not supposed to dig in the dirt? I bet that white dog gets pretty dirty.

Amy said...

Sox have Earth Day logo on the sleeves.

Amy said...

I wonder just how green the whole Red Sox organization really is.

L-girl said...

We're lucky, her fur is amazingly self-cleaning. We towel her off and she's clean. In the winter, she shakes snow of herself, and her fur is dry. The northern breeds (huskies, malamutes, etc) have amazing fur.

I like the Sox Earth Day logos.

L-girl said...

Oh yeah, digging. She probably once made a huge mess in the dirt and I expressed dismay, hence the guilty ears. But I didn't yell at her for this. Dogs like to dig, what are you gonna do.

L-girl said...

I doubt they're very green at all. If they were, they'd tell us about it.

(Or do they and I don't know?)

Amy said...

I think training a dog not to dig is probably almost as futile an exercise as teaching a cat not to chase a mouse or bird! I think it must be more by breed, though. Neither Zapper or Cassie ever was interested in digging.

Amy said...

And yeah, I doubt much is very green about Fenway, except, of course, Fenway itself.

Amy said...

McDonald can field also.

redsock said...

low strike sgetting called tonight

L-girl said...

very quiet here

westcoastsox said...

Yankees turned a triple play today. There's something that doesn't happen very often.

L-girl said...

Oo that's cool. We saw one in a minor league game in Santa Fe. It's so weird how it takes a moment to realize what you saw.

Amy said...

Hey Westcoast, you on the ground??

Amy said...

I have never seen one. I wonder if Harvey knows. He didn't mention it to me yet.

redsock said...

kkkkkkkkklay

redsock said...

droooooooooooooo

westcoastsox said...

I'm on the ground, in the office, itching to get in the car and listen to some baseball on the way home.

L-girl said...

I wonder why NESN thinks we need sound effects when the graphics move or when the inning ends.

We do not.

Edward Lee said...

Tim Wakefield looked like his dog just died.

redsock said...

my voiceover for that was "we're old and on our way out...."

redsock said...

should be 4-0 soon, amy.

L-girl said...

Stall, Clay. Tie your shoe. Get something in your eye so Ram Ram can warm up.

Edward Lee said...

JFC. Ball looked like it hit a land mine before reaching Youkilis.

Edward Lee said...

If Ramon Ramirez is our best option out of the pen right now, I'm fine with Clay throwing another 40 pitches.

L-girl said...

hello defense

Edward Lee said...

Cue Yakety Sax music.

L-girl said...

Hey, I have an idea! What say the Red Sox score some runs?!

SoSock said...

Damn, bad time to join the game. By GDGD report, we looked like Keystone Cops out there that last play.

redsock said...

rally?

redsock said...

gammons reports wakefield to bullpen.

SoSock said...

So prior to the 7th, Clay was sitting on just 2 hits, 1 walk, and no runs thru 6. I'll take that any day. WTF is up with the meltdown though?

redsock said...

he was cruising, career high 10 K, but three hard hit balls to start the 7th.

SoSock said...

I hate it for Wake, but that move makes more sense to me than any other option

redsock said...

we need a 3-run happy meal from mcdonald

Edward Lee said...

ODELAY

redsock said...

.... it's fun time.

Benjamin said...

Bah. O'Day was painting the left-hand batters box.

redsock said...

last time we had 3 walk-offs in a row?

SoSock said...

Clutch pitch

redsock said...

NO bunts!!!!!!!!!

SoSock said...

No esta en fuego

SoSock said...

whimper, whimper

redsock said...

so we need a bloop and 2 blasts.

yook
blue light
dr.

Amy said...

So three down, three outs to go. Third consecutive walkoff?

redsock said...

as long as feliz is not in, there is hope.

Amy said...

At least we broke the chain of 4-0 scores.

Amy said...

Hit!

redsock said...

it's a start.

Amy said...

Blogger acting funny again.

redsock said...

i know - i got your 4-0 comment like 5 times.

Amy said...

And that's the game.

End of walkoff streak.

redsock said...

crap.

in other news, lowell makes any molina look like ellsbury.

Amy said...

Good night, all. Hope we find the bats again next time.

johngoldfine said...

Goodnight all!

Amy said...

Thanks for not putting it through five times. What is Blogger's problem??

redsock said...

no idea. it happens.

they seemed to come in every minute, 10:04, 10:05, 10:06 etc. as long as i can see they are identical, it's easy to boot 'em.

let's hope the 2-14 orioles keep sucking this weekend.

redsock said...

also - we are going to monday's game at skydome!
