G6: Red Sox 8, Royals 6

Red Sox - 410 300 000 - 8 12  1
Royals - 111 000 03x - 6 10 1
Another fun day from the Supposedly Hitless Wonders.

Ellsbury singled, doubled, stole a base, and scored twice; Pedroia went 4-for-5, and hit his 3rd home run of the year; Martinez singled, doubled, walked, scored twice, and drive in one; Beltre singled twice, doubled, and drove in three; Hermida had a two-run single in the first inning; and Youkilis walked twice and stole a base.

Ortiz did not have a fun day. He walked and scored in the first, but then struck out in his subsequent four plate appearances, two swinging and then two looking. Flo is now 2-for-18, with nine strikeouts. In his last 11 plate appearances, he has fanned eight times.

Ellsbury collided with Beltre in foul territory in the ninth inning and left the game. He was sliding in to make the catch and Beltre's right knee struck him in the chest. If either player called the other one off, it wasn't loud enough.

Buchholz (5-7-3-2-1, 94) struggled and could not get into a rhythm. Delcarmen pitched two innings, allowing only a walk. Bard retired three in a row int he eighth after Ramirez allowed KC to come back within two runs. Papelbon's ninth was interrupted by the collision, but he set the Royals down in order.
Example
Clay Buchholz / Gil Meche

Both pitchers are making their 2010 debut.

Back on September 24, Buchholz turned in a 6-5-0-0-8, 109 line against the Royals in KC. Meche is coming off the disabled list (shoulder bursitis).

Doesn't look good for me to see much of this one. I could have NESN in my ear, but I've got some transcribing.

L-girl said...

Will this work... maybe...

I have the game in my ear, can listen to the whole thing, but I doubt I'll be able to thread. Enjoy.

GO SOX!

meunier said...

And we're down again..

meunier said...

DUHHHH I'm not awake yet I read the marker for the top of the 1st as the score.

redsock said...

Looks like LBJ scored on a blue light single.

meunier said...

I was not familiar with the gamescore boxes on mlb tv

L-girl said...

Blue Light... remind me?

L-girl said...

whoo-hoo! 2-0

meunier said...

Beltre scores V-Mart w/ a hit to right

L-girl said...

here we go... 4-0...

meunier said...

4-0 now!

redsock said...

I like it. Empty your mind, HH, and pitch.

meunier said...

Hall you blockhead

redsock said...

That reminds me. I was completely surprised to see that Hall was not the white guy I had mentally pictured him as.

redsock said...

FY!!!! 5-1.

johngoldfine said...

4 run lead again!

redsock said...

you can't win with those powder blue unis, you just can't.

L-girl said...

Lyndon hearts KC.

So what happened in the OF? Sounded ugly.

johngoldfine said...

'Bill Hall' does sound pretty white bread....

meunier said...

Don't the Royals have a knuckleballer named Martinez? I thought he was thier long man.

meunier said...

Hall ignored LBJ calling the ball and caused an error, Posednick scored

L-girl said...

So it was Hall's bungling, not LBJ's. Radio guys weren't sure.

Philip said...

C'mon Papi!

redsock said...

:<(

L-girl said...

ugh

redsock said...

sox strand a pair and a half.

johngoldfine said...

Ugh, yeah, majorly.

redsock said...

well, fuck.

meunier said...

Guillen dong

redsock said...

my computer is freaking me out. i think i must have closed mlbtv -- there is nothing down by the start menu and the screen is not open in any window, but i can hear don's voice.

redsock said...

it's asking me to log in -- even though i can hear nesn. fuck, now i got it twice!!! sounds like don is giving the famous gehrig speech.

i consider myself self the greatest man man on the face of the earth earth ...

L-girl said...

Your computer has become Don.

redsock said...

Restarted everything. 5-3?

redsock said...

BOS - 410
KCR - 111

redsock said...

Your computer has become Don.

He is a bit of a robot.

meunier said...

KC keeps chipping away..

redsock said...

LASER DONG!

meunier said...

FY DONG!

Ish said...

LASER SHOW!!!

Jere said...

That ball was headed for his face and not only does he hit a fair ball, he hits a dong.

meunier said...

Blue light ground rule double

meunier said...

Apparently Pedroia just missed getting free burritos for all of KC

redsock said...

does tejada know how to throw a strike?

redsock said...

shoulda had a green light

Jere said...

This guy would walk Shea Hillenbrand

redsock said...

... but not vlad.

L-girl said...

Weeeee, fun

redsock said...

nice. now if we could only score a couple of runs.

Jere said...

Beltless trenchcoat

redsock said...

HH: Could you toss a bagel here, pls?

L-girl said...

Beltless trenchcoat? The Executive?

Jere said...

Yo Adrian "The Executive" Belt-ray's a-pizzzzaaa

Jere said...

An H&H for HH

redsock said...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, H&H ....

L-girl said...

Oh. Okay.

I think I'll pass on that nickname! :)

Jere said...

Nice pick by the Exec

L-girl said...

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, H&H

Was about to type that! Hey, I can get one of those this week. Yum.

Jere said...

god this pisses me off--"everyone" wondering where the home runs are gonna come from....not, "a few crazy people and the media who like to stir up shit," but "everyone"

L-girl said...

Well, sure. "Everyone" sings GBA, everyone cares about Tiger Woods, everyone cares about college basketball... and whatever else We The Media talk about.

SoSock said...

Greetings. I guess RS is hoping for a scoreless bottom of the 6th, then 1 each in 7, 8, and 9 for KC ;>

redsock said...

nice grab!!!!

SoSock said...

Caught Looking?

Jere said...

mider maid an out

Jere said...

The Executive didn't Produce there

Jere said...

Two 3U DPs today

redsock said...

FY rakin'.

L-girl said...

FY's on fire

Amy said...

Good afternoon. I am hoping not to jinx the game again by threading. Five run lead means we SHOULD be safe.

SoSock said...

Wanting to hit a "dislike" button right now

redsock said...

strongly "dislike"

Jere said...

DamnDamn

L-girl said...

Hmm.

SoSock said...

Shit, ram-ram

johngoldfine said...

Bleah.

meunier said...

What were you saying??

Amy said...

Uch.

redsock said...

K.

SoSock said...

98 mph fastball then a 85 mph slider - nastiness.
Have I mentioned...nevermind ;>

redsock said...

Tala sighting at the music blog A Truer Sound!

westcoastsox said...

Hi all, rainy Sunday here in Northern California. Can we win this game please?

redsock said...

even an medium-sized father would be nice now.

westcoastsox said...

4 strikeouts, ugh.

redsock said...

no way ortiz can keep batting ahead of drew. it's insane. tiz has got to be no higher than 7th.

redsock said...

make it quick, bot.

Amy said...

I am closing my eyes.

redsock said...

jesus.

meunier said...

Oh SHIT

Amy said...

Shit, is he ok??

redsock said...

i think he got a knee in the chest

westcoastsox said...

Ellsbury's got to call the infielder off better. That's twice this game, and this one might hurt.

Amy said...

What's with the fielding in our great defense? First, Hall, and then this?

redsock said...

drew in rf, hall to left

meunier said...

Josh Reddick, call Delta Airlines for your flight to Minneapolis.

Amy said...

He does not look good.

redsock said...

On Fire is always ready.

SoSock said...

what's up?

Amy said...

At least Pap is looking solid today.

Amy said...

Dirty!

Interesting, Westcoast, you think Ellsbury wasn't calling them off?

Jere said...

series W

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

SoSock said...

WATER!

Amy said...

OK, going to eat dinner. Can't see comments anyway with the delay. :(

meunier said...

Dirty Water but we may be down a starter.

A Conformer said...

Just dropping in to say: woohoo! Dirty water!

(P.S. Is LBJ OK?)

westcoastsox said...

Have no idea. The KC announcers when I was listening to XM earlier didn't think he called Hall off.

redsock said...

Sit LBJ tomorrow and have an extra rest day on Tuesday?

SoSock said...

Nice to see bot get a 1-2-3 innin

redsock said...

EB will have something asap.

redsock said...

Blue Jays now 5-1.

L-girl said...

Love that dirty water! I hope LBJ is ok.

Do you think he needs any help...?

L-girl said...

the Supposedly Hitless Wonders

This is it! The SHW, or the SHW Club. You may have just provided us with nickname for the whole season.

Of course, it was inevitable.

L-girl said...

Amy, could you not see comments even after refreshing?

redsock said...

Not zippy enough.

redsock said...

Abraham:
"Jacoby Ellsbury has a rib contusion after that collision in the ninth inning. X-rays were negative. Ellsbury said he is sore and initially feared he had broken some ribs after he crashed into Adrian Beltre as both were chasing a foul ball. No word on when he'll play, but it could be a few days."

L-girl said...

Very zippy! But this is better:

THWs. The Hitless Wonders. The "supposedly" is silent.
