G19: Orioles 7, Red Sox 6 (10)

Orioles - 010 000 300 3 - 7 14  0
Red Sox - 000 004 000 2 - 6 13 1
More crappy performances by several members of the bullpen: Hideki Okajima, Scott Atchison and Scott Schoeneweis were the culprits today.

I'm unclear why Terry Francona opted for Atchison over Manny Delcarmen to start the 10th. Down by three, the Red Sox rallied in the bottom of the 10th, but Darnell McDonald and Marco Scutaro could not bring in the tying run from second.
Example
David Hernandez / Tim Wakefield

Very similar stats this year for the two starters:

IP H R ER BB SO ERA WHIP

Hernandez 17.1 20 10 9 7 13 4.67 1.618
Wakefield 18.1 23 14 13 7 11 6.38 1.636
Lineup:
Scutaro, SS
Pedroia, 2B
Martinez, C
Youkilis, 1B
Ortiz, DH
Drew, RF
Beltre, 3B
Hermida, LF
Van Every, CF

Brady Anderson (now an Orioles broadcaster) is on the pre-game w/ Castig. Castig asked about the comparisons between him and LBJ, does Ellsbury remind Anderson of himself as a young player. Brady says yes only he wasn't as good and exciting, took him longer to develop as a hitter and base stealer.

No mention that they were/are both watched for non-baseball reasons as well. And of course no mention that Brady might like to watch Ellsbury for those reasons, too.

Kid Announcer Day:

Guy doing the Os is identified a "Kevin". NESN couldn't be bothered to put his last name up?!?!

redsock said...

Yo, Adrian! WTF?

SoSock said...

e5. Not a great start

SoSock said...

DAMN! 2 straight e5s?

mattymatty said...

When you're hired for your defense and everyone spends months and months talking about your defense you probably shouldn't make consecutive errors to lead off a game.

SoSock said...

So after 8 pitches Wake shuld have had 2 outs, then gets a fly to end it. Instead there are stil runners at 1st and 3rd and only 1 out.
Be ashamed, Beltre

L-girl said...

You can be sure he is ashamed. If we get out of this scoreless and Beltre dongs later, he'll make up for it.

redsock said...

good stuff.

SoSock said...

Well, he did catch the pop-up

redsock said...

Only "Erin" for the Sox.

redsock said...

took away the E on reimold. seems like the right decision.

mattymatty said...

After a few years off I was playing in an adult league game yesterday and caught a number of pop ups. I was amazed at how difficult it is to catch a high pop up with a blue sky. You think you're under it but the ball seems to move farther and farther back on you.

What I mean to say: good catch by Beltre to end the inning.

SoSock said...

Not much movement on the knuckler today, it appears.

redsock said...

that's an odd play!

redsock said...

nice play by beltre on tejada, that was a low scorcher.

redsock said...

Totally blown call by the 2B umpire -- and he was actually in good position -- in Sox's favour, but FY grounds out.

SoSock said...

Was the "on-fld delay" an argument about the call?

redsock said...

If you mean with Scutaro grounding to Wigginton, yes. Kirk came out to discuss.

SoSock said...

Life?

SoSock said...

Papi truped GDGD. It said "in play - no out" at first, then changed it

SoSock said...

RAS

redsock said...

damn, nice snare!

SoSock said...

Nice wriggle job by Wake. Now let's make it pay for him. Runs plz!

redsock said...

BBeltre!

redsock said...

oh - eff you, markakis.

SoSock said...

I for one would not have minded seeing Hermida bunt there

redsock said...

still too early for me to want a bunt.

redsock said...

crazy movement on those first 2 to tatum!

redsock said...

okay, now we pounce:

fy
victor
yook
flo

SoSock said...

2 More Ks. Wake's 2nd OTT I believe.

SoSock said...

It's a start

L-girl said...

Dear Red Sox,

I cannot listen to you today because my employer insists on employing me. Please win in my absence.

Love always (even when you suck),

....

redsock said...

i like the look of this.

OTT: 3rd and 6th.

redsock said...

come on - give me that sweaty dong.

SoSock said...

We have pounced! Nice call.

redsock said...

For L:

FY - walk
Victor: single to right
Yook - single to left, 1-1!

pitching change

Edward Lee said...

A large, fatherly dong will be adequate. A lanky, Cuban dong would be acceptable as well.

redsock said...

good hitters, gotta happen some time!

SoSock said...

Going to the O's bullpen with 2 on and no out. This can only help us ;>

redsock said...

EL: Would rather not kill the rally, though.

redsock said...

When L and I went to FP on our 20th anniversary (7/20/05), Hendrickson started for Tampa. Faced 6 batters in the first, got 0 outs. Then he left!

...

shit, close for flo

redsock said...

SHIFT THIS, KIRK!

Edward Lee said...

Rally-sustaining single. Bah.

SoSock said...

Papi!

redsock said...

3-1 on JD's sac.

redsock said...

Hendrickson to Hernandez: "I'm a fuckin' up your ERA!!!"

SoSock said...

Per GDGD graphic - that was a DEEP ball by Drew

redsock said...

beltre! more hits! everybody hits!

SoSock said...

Hit parade!

redsock said...

hill buckled on that one.

SoSock said...

Wow. Assassin Tito

redsock said...

i would like our bullpen to refrain from making this one even close to a nail-biter.

redsock said...

dr. 3 for 6 vs berken.

redsock said...

DOCTAH DOUBLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

nice day's work, mike!

SoSock said...

paid off

SoSock said...

9 batters, 4 runs. Pretty good inning. Make it stand!

A Conformer said...

Hey all, joining in for the relatively early game. I was on GDGD for the big inning- fun!

Is Wake really mixing up his pitches this inning, or is GDGD just crazy?

SoSock said...

change?

Edward Lee said...

GD is correct, Wakefield threw a bunch of fastballs behind in the count (since he has a big lead) and at least one sub-60 curveball.

SoSock said...

Hi AC. Yeah, it was wierd seeing a pitch listed as 73 mph with the word fastball beside it. But that's Wake. Pretty good day's work for his "last" start

A Conformer said...

Fuck. Let's nip this thing in the bud, eh?

SoSock said...

Damn Jeemer. Get yer shit together

redsock said...

motherFUCKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SoSock said...

Fuck you, Oki. Damn!

A Conformer said...

What the fuck is wrong with this fucking bullpen???

redsock said...

BAL: 010 000 3
BOS: 000 004

grrrrrrrrrrrrr

redsock said...

another fy-started rally?

redsock said...

FY jerkin' the berken. Now 6 for 10 against him!

SoSock said...

Lead-off double! We started the last inning with Petey on, wouldn't mind the same results this time.

SoSock said...

Ribbie time Yook.

A Conformer said...

Papi or bust.

redsock said...

Plz, Tiz!

SoSock said...

wow

SoSock said...

squanderage

redsock said...

jeemer squeezed on the 1-0

A Conformer said...

Why the hell is Oki still in the game?

SoSock said...

OK, guys. Put this one away. Dozing off here. Yesterday was my birthday - late night. Very late night

SoSock said...

Lugo at SS. Sound familiar?

SoSock said...

nice

A Conformer said...

I'm gone for 10 minutes, and Bard turns all racist on the Os.

A Conformer said...

The Microwave will have the chance to be the hero again.

A Conformer said...

Quarter-hero!

Gotta put this one away, there's no bench left.

redsock said...

work is piling up. win now!

Edward Lee said...

Telegraphing a sac bunt attempt in an obvious situation makes baby Jesus cry.

SoSock said...

Blue light walk-off plz!

SoSock said...

shit

SoSock said...

Gotta take that pitch the other way, V-Mart

redsock said...

is atchison really our best option at this point?

SoSock said...

There's your answer

SoSock said...

no pressure or anything Scott

Edward Lee said...

RR deserves some blame for this game for coughing up runs yesterday and forcing Papelbon to put out the fire.

redsock said...

this sucks

SoSock said...

We have exactly 1 bullpen pitcher. Everyone else is a farce

Edward Lee said...

If anyone can figure out a way to take runs off the board here, it's Lugo.

redsock said...

triple play for lugo?

Edward Lee said...

LOLugo

redsock said...

should have been mdc to start this goddamn inning, unless tito was avoiding him then, but is forced to use him now.

Edward Lee said...

Another masterful lo-lev appearance by MDC. Huzzah!

redsock said...

that works.

redsock said...

DREW!!!!!!!!!!

beltre = potential tying run!

redsock said...

"johnson had that 24 minute wait"

redsock said...

HIT!

tying runs on, winning run batting (bill hall)

redsock said...

CLA up now

A Conformer said...

ALIVE!

Would it have killed Atchischoeneweis to only give up 2 runs...?

redsock said...

OMG - Hall hits! 7-6!

microwave time!

redsock said...

don't be nervous, cla...

Edward Lee said...

Superman wears Darnell McDonald pajamas.

A Conformer said...

I have faith in the microwaith.

SoSock said...

Damn, I HAVE to go, been stretching it for 10 minutes. BE A HERO AGAIN MCDONALD!
Crap - damn birthday get-together at parents.
WIN!

redsock said...

you mean microwraith?

marco or bust!

johngoldfine said...

Scootz

johngoldfine said...

My dogs are demanding a walk, sosock....

johngoldfine said...

But I'd prefer a hit!

johngoldfine said...

fuck

redsock said...

shit.

(thanks for letting miggy take you deep, jeemer.)

on to toronto!

Amy said...

I heard this game in the car as we left the Cape today. So aggravating that Oki blew Wake's lead. Will we ever see Wakefield start another game?

No one will likely read this comment, but if we have to struggle this hard to take two out of three against Baltimore, it is scary to think how we will do against a real team.

L-girl said...

I read it!

Amy said...

Thanks, Laura. I had being the tree falling that no one hears! I missed threading these two games, but you probably were spared lots of my hand-wringing. :)
