G50: Royals 12, Red Sox 5

Royals  - 002 700 120 - 12 20  0
Red Sox - 302 000 000 - 5 10 1
Here is everything you need to know about tonight's game:
Bill Hall pitched the only 1-2-3 inning for the Red Sox.
Wakefield was dismal: 3.2-12-9-3-1, 88. Fifteen baserunners and only 11 outs.

The Royals tied a club record against the Red Sox with 20 hits. The first time was on August 2, 1987, in a 13-5 Royals win. (The Royal team record is 26 hits, against the Tigers on September 9, 2004. It was the first game of a doubleheader in Detroit, and Kansas City won 26-5. The Tigers won the nightcap 8-0.)

One bright spot: Victor Martinez doubled and homered in his first two trips to the plate, driving in four runs.

AL East: The White Sox beat the Rays 5-2, the Yankees beat Cleveland 8-2, and the Blue Jays shut out the Orioles 5-0. And so we are back in fourth, 6.5 GB, with New York 3.5 and Toronto 5.5.
Example
Kyle Davies / Tim Wakefield
Scutaro, SS
Pedroia, 2B
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Martinez, C
Drew, RF
Beltre, 3B
Hermida, LF
Cameron, CF
Jacoby Ellsbury is back on the DL. See below.

And:
Spiders/Yankees, 7 PM
White Sox/Rays, 7 PM
Orioles/Blue Jays, 7 PM

The Mets finished a three-game "perfect" sweep of the Phillies: 8-0, 5-0, 3-0! Philadelphia has scored only three runs in its last five games. Runs scored in last nine games: 1, 1, 5, 5, 0, 3, 0, 0, 0.

Joe Gerardi stalls to replace a pitcher.

So replacing an injured pitcher requires a formal protest, but just stalling cause you didn't warm up your reliever yet is A-OK. gotch. IOKIFYAMFY.

Ellsbury back on DL

redsock said...

Marco with the Baltimore dong.

Patrick said...

I'm gonna be pissed if we don't win the next two games.

Patrick said...

If you told me before the season that on May 28th, Pedroia and Ortiz would have the same average, I would be very confused.

redsock said...

SHIFT THIS.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Hit it there every time.

PAPI!!!!!!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Didn't Girardi do some obvious stalling in one of the games in the opening series? It was Youk I think on 1B, and he was standing a step away from the bag, and they kept throwing over to first waiting for the reliever to be ready. That pissed me off with West's comments on that series, because he was letting them stall.

I was at last night's game, and my question is, why was I the only one booing when West was announced?

Patrick said...

A walk a day keeps...

RedSoxDiehard said...

Millar is in John W. Henry's seats. Is he going to be giving Tito advice all night? He does know he's not on the team anymore, right?

redsock said...

I saw West on NESN before I read your comment and I was thinking he must be sorry he ever opened his fat yap because he's likely hearing it wherever he goes from fans of both sides. ... Maybe not.

redsock said...

Me likey.

Patrick said...

RUNS!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

V-Mart, bum toe and all.

RedSoxDiehard said...

LOL, I saw Cabin Mirror sitting there during the Papi at-bat. I type slowly and right after I hit "publish", they show him on NESN and Remy says, "Maybe that's why Tito's not in his usual seat - he doesn't want to listen to Millar's advice all night."

Patrick said...

OB actually being kind to Drew right there. Mentioning how he's played a lot of games.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Vic-toe!

Patrick said...

V-Mart doing is best Mike Lowell base running impression.

redsock said...

I wonder if Lowell could beat Victor in a race right now.

RedSoxDiehard said...

When was the last time Tek caught Wake? The 14th inning of '04 ALCS G5?

RedSoxDiehard said...

I wonder if Lowell could beat Victor in a race right now.

Let's get Sean Casey in there too and really make it interesting!

redsock said...

Tek caught Wake in one game in 2008, according to Wake's B-Ref splits.

redsock said...

Sorry, it was one inning in one game!

redsock said...

21.1 innings over 4 games in 2005.

Patrick said...

Gah, making me squirm.

redsock said...

I await Bob Watson's announcement that Millar is forbidden to sit in that box and gab with the Red Sox during the game.

redsock said...

CLE - 000
MFY - 02

CWS - 000 2*
FKR - 001

BAL - 00
TOR - 30

* still batting

Mrs.GotRibe said...

All right, that's enough now.

RedSoxDiehard said...

I await Bob Watson's announcement that Millar is forbidden to sit in that box and gab with the Red Sox during the game.

That's who he's on the phone with now.

redsock said...

you can walk around if you like.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

V-MART!!! What toe?

Patrick said...

'tis easier to jog than to run.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Yay! Vic-toe can take as long as he needs to run the bases this time!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Dewey! In the booth with Don and Jerry...

I hate when they have guests babbling in the booth, but I (heart) Dewey.

Yo, dudes, I leave for 20 minutes, and we go from 4 ahead to 4 behind.

Work on that.

RedSoxDiehard said...

C'mon, Papi, hit it outta here... and grab Bogar on your way by so it can tie the game.

dejesus is 4-for-4.
8th career game with 4 hits.
has never had 5.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Re Cleveland/Yankees. A doctor in my practice is a huge Indians fan. He told me today that I better hope the Sox win this weekend b/c Cleveland can't beat anybody.

redsock said...

Games in which Royals had at least 16 hits against Sox. LIST

(only 4 since 1990)

most hits: 20, august 2, 1987

redsock said...

Now pitching: The Mop.

anybody multi-tasking and watching the Celtics?

redsock said...

i am multi-tasking and listening at my job.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Re Cleveland/Yankees. A doctor in my practice is a huge Indians fan. He told me today that I better hope the Sox win this weekend b/c Cleveland can't beat anybody.

I said "my practice" like I own the place. I don't. And I'm not a doctor. Don't want to send out any misinformation.

redsock said...

drew making difficult plays look easy.

A Seawolves Fanatic said...

awesome redsock, ive been meaning to ask you but keep forgetting: are you going to check out the christian band i told you about?

redsock said...

KCR has had 17+ hits in a game vs Sox 14 times. They have won all 14 of those games.

Only 5 games with 18+ hits, though.

redsock said...

I found an album or two, but have not listened to it/them closely. I will, though.

SoSock said...

mmmmm, getting ready to pull up GDGD, but after skimming thru here, not so sure I really want to. Alas, we're fans. So.....
Still we watch

A Seawolves Fanatic said...

okay kool, yeah i was just wondering if you already did and i missed it.

SoSock said...

How the hell are we losing to the Royals for the second night in a row after the roll we've been on lately? I understand that you lose a game here and there, even to the lowliest teams. But 2 straight? At home? The Royals?
Oh yeah, we haven't actually lost this one yet, have we? :)
So still we watch

meunier said...

The Royals have always been the bad team that beats us for some reason.

SoSock said...

Having voiced my eternal optimism, I must say - If we don't lose this one, we sure have missed a damn good chance to lose one.
WTF was up with Wake? No movement tonight?
I wonder if he would blame it on the shift to non-starting duty, and therefore less of a rhythm?

redsock said...

Clelevand was that team when I was a kid.

Though, we went 5-3 against them last year and 6-1 in 2008.

...

They are dicks.

SoSock said...

Good point meunier. That does seem to be the case now that you mention it.

SoSock said...

I believe a few years back we went thru a spell with Baltimore too. They would be in last place, us in first or second. But they would still give us fits every time.

redsock said...

the royals *are* leading the AL in average, one point ahead of the mfy. that will likely go up tonight.

redsock said...

Jason Kendall is not an attractive man.

SoSock said...

Jeemer - not good tonight.

Seems to be a trend

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I don't think we have consistency from any of our relievers. Maybe MDC lately and Shakespeare?

RedSoxDiehard said...

Bill Hall warming in the pen....

redsock said...

Just went away.
I come back and Bill Hall is pitching.
Oy.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I love it when these non-pitchers come in and do better than the relief guys.

RedSoxDiehard said...

2 up, 2 down so far. Congratulations, Bill. You're our most consistent pitcher.

redsock said...

Hall is dealing!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Bill OTTing Hall!!!

redsock said...

Hall gets the only 1-2-3 inning of the game for Sox pitchers.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Hall should get the start 5 days from now!

RedSoxDiehard said...

OK, rally time! Let's get Bill Hall the win!

SoSock said...

Hrmph.
Tito apparently has no faith in our ability to score 7 runs in 1 inning

SoSock said...

Or maybe he has a lot of faith in Bill Hall. Which seems to be justified right now

redsock said...

Hall is also the emergency catcher, if I recall.

SoSock said...

Had to happen

tim said...

Bill Hall? OK.

WTF happened, Bosox?
