G53: Red Sox 9, Athletics 4

Athletics - 002 020 000 - 4 13  0
Red Sox - 000 032 13x - 9 14 1
Victor Martinez went 5-for-5, with a career-high four doubles, leading Boston's comeback.

Martinez has had three other five-hit games: July 16, 2004 (3 HR, 7 RBI), July 4, 2006, and August 2, 2009. Martinez hit three doubles against the Twins about two weeks ago, on May 20.

Martinez doubled with one out in the fifth, Kevin Youkilis singled, and Adrian Beltre lined a three-run dong over the Wall, cutting Oakland's lead from 4-0 to 4-3. In the sixth, the first three Red Sox batters walked. Dustin Pedroia's GIDP tied the game and Martinez's ground rule double into the triangle gave the Sox a 5-4 lead.

A two-out walk by J.D. Drew, followed by Bill Hall's triple, made it 6-4 -- and the Sox batted around in the eighth to put the game on ice. With one out, Pedroia doubled, Martinez doubled, Youkilis singled; after David Ortiz flew out, Beltre singled and Drew singled. There were a couple of wild pitches, too.

Lackey (6-12-4-2-4, 116) allowed a small army of base runners, but stranded most of them, including seven in the 4th-5th-6th innings.

The Blue Jays led the Rays 5-0 after six innings, but Tampa got three in the seventh and (aided by five walks) four in the ninth and won 7-6. The Yankees beat the Orioles 3-1.

East: NYY 2.5 GB, TOR 4.5 GB, BOS 5.5 GB.

Oakland is 28-24 and is 1 GA of the Rangers in the AL West.

The A's have scored 205 runs and allowed 212 runs (expected record: 25-27). They went 16-12 in May despite scoring 99 runs and allowing 113. They have won eight of their last 10 games and 10 of their last 14. (Fangraphs' Matt Klaassen on the A's.)

Boston is 29-23, 5 GB Tampa Bay.

In his last four starts, Lackey has allowed 31 hits and 16 walks in 24.1 innings (6.29).
I've looked at some of those walks and they weren't really walks. I've gone back and looked. My control is not as bad as it seems. ... I'm going to be OK. I'm not worried about it.
The A's have allowed only 21 earned runs in their past 10 games (27 runs overall). In six of the 10 games, Oakland has allowed 0 or 1 run.

Michael Silverman, Herald:
Red Sox starters were 6-6 with a 4.86 ERA in April, a perfect reflection of the team's overall mediocrity that month.

But with Jon Lester leading the way, they rebounded in May.
Starters ERA:
            APR    MAY    DIFF
Rays 2.76 3.40 -0.64
Yankees 3.41 3.94 -0.53
Blue Jays 4.02 4.46 -0.44
Red Sox 4.86 4.32 +0.54
The Red Sox traded Jonathan Van Every to the Pirates for minor league catcher Josue Peley. This will most likely be the last time you hear Peley's name (because he has hit .186/.241/.234 in two seasons of A ball).

Also at 7 PM:
Rays/Blue Jays
Example
Orioles/Yankees
June 1 in Baseball History

1918: Trailing the Yankees 5-4, the White Sox load the bases in the ninth inning with no outs. Chick Gandil hits a line drive to New York third baseman Frank Baker, who starts a game-ending triple play.

1923: The Giants score in every inning and beat the Phillies 22-8.
Giants   - 421 155 121 - 22 23  0
Phillies - 140 110 010 - 8 15 0
1925: Lou Gehrig pinch-hits for Pee Wee Wanninger, beginning his streak of playing in 2,130 consecutive games.

2000: Tomo Ohka of the Pawtucket Red Sox pitches a perfect game (on only 76 pitches!) against the Charlotte Knights, winning 2-0. It is only the 3rd perfect game in the 117 years of the International League. Three years later, on August 10, 2003, Bronson Arroyo of the Paw Sox will pitch the IL's 4th perfect game.

The other game where a team scored in every inning is apparently this one in 1964 between St Louis and the Cubs. Wasn't Jere obsessed with that feat for a while?

redsock said...

It's MY obsession!

It has happened a few times -- the Rockies did it in the late 90s or so -- though the only times the visiting team has done it has been in the NL.

A few AL teams have scored in all 8 at home and did not bat in the 9th, but no AL team has ever scored in all 9 innings.

Btw, neat linescore last Saturday:

NYM - 111 300 000 - 6 9 0
MIL - 412 100 00x - 8 9 1

redsock said...

Ryan Kalish promoted to Pawtucket

Benjamin said...

It's MY obsession!

I thought you had a different one.

L-girl said...

He has several. The scoring-in-every-inning obsession has lots of company.

Patrick said...

Yeaaahhh, Kalish!!!

293/.404/.527 at 22 in AA.

Looking forward to you stepping in for J.D. in 2012 (assuming we're all still here).

Patrick said...

Looking at the pitching matchups for this series, I don't feel very good about it.

Not that it's a good indicator of talent, but all of their starters have better ERAs than our respective starter.

I'm hoping Pedroia comes back and helps us through.

redsock said...

In her Mailbag, Amalie Benjamin rips Yankee Joe West, in a way you don't usually hear in these types of chats:

"It is completely inappropriate for Joe West to be doing what he's doing. ... [T]he antics that West has been pulling have been far out of bounds, including making sure that reporters know where he's going to be when the policy is to keep umpires' schedules under wraps. Umpires are not supposed to make themselves the story, and that is clearly what West has been doing ... According to a report by Yahoo!, Major League Baseball is planning to either fine or suspend West ... He has already been fined for the situation with the White Sox. Essentially, no one should know West's name. The fact that everyone does at this point is a problem ..."

redsock said...

He has several.

Indeed. Many of them fall under the category of "interesting linescore patterns".

Lots of 0s, no 0s, repeating numbers, ascending or descending numbers, palindromes, matching top and bottom innings, etc.

Joe Gravellese said...

the weather is not looking good.

redsock said...

PA, EB:
Cameron out today with "soreness"; being examined by team doctor this afternoon.
Ellsbury hitting in cage. Tests have ruled out anything wrong beyond the fractured ribs; up to Ellsbury when he can play.

9casey said...

In his last four starts, Lackey has allowed 31 hits and 16 walks in 24.1 innings (6.29).

He says:
I've looked at some of those walks and they weren't really walks





Oh ok , now it makes sense. Thanks Lackey for clearin that up.....

9casey said...

redsock said...
Tests have ruled out anything wrong beyond the fractured ribs; up to Ellsbury when he can play.



So he should be back around the 9th of June

Benjamin said...

Lots of 0s

Yeah, I was thinking zeros.

Benjamin said...

A band of insane thunderstorms came through. Looks better now.

redsock said...

nesn! - tarp on.

redsock said...

tarp being taken off.

maybe they had to wait so the LL Bean logo could get on TV...

meunier said...

I saw the A's AAA team yesterday, their closer hit 101

redsock said...

nesn says a 7:30 start.

redsock said...

cable package staying with nesn.

tom caron: "this is a completely different oakland team, but lackey has had a lot of success against this team."

ooooh kay.

redsock said...

But certainly, looking at what Lackey did against the 2002/2003 A's is very relevant to what happens tonight. How well he did against guys like Scott Hatteberg, David Justice, Jeremy Giambi, and Randy Velarde is a good sign for tonight.

meunier said...

No need for MLB TV today since I am in the OAK/SF TV area.

redsock said...

who played in that minor league game?

Zenslinger said...

I saw the A's AAA team yesterday, their closer hit 101

Who's their AAA team again?

I saw the Reno Aces play against the Sacramento River Cats. I e-mailed RS that our own (or formerly our own) Jeff "Gumball" Bailey hit a single and scored Reno's only run.

The park built right in downtown Reno is part of the city's downtown more-than-just-gambling renewal effort. The park experience was much better than, say, Oakland's. It's not quite San Francisco, but there is lots of General Admission seating, including a lawn past the right field fence. (GA was $7.) Some good food, friendly atmosphere, no lines for bathrooms or drinks, seats about 12,000. Awesome.

Ish said...

Boooo rain delays. I'm still in Charlotte so I was watching Phillies/Braves and they're now in a rain delay, too. And it's raining outside here as well!

Zenslinger said...

Glaus 3R HR off Hamels. Braves to stay on top in the NL East? Maybe not likely, but the NL has an incredibly crowded wild card race right now.

9casey said...

NESN had the Portland-New Britain game on yesterday, Casey Kelly didn't look all that good , but Anthony Rizzo 1b looked pretty decent, he,like Lester, also overcame cancer.He is only 20 and looks like a cant miss, from the one game I saw and what the announcers were saying about him, he hit an absolute bomb yesterday.

redsock said...

play ball!

would have liked to have seen casey.

L-girl said...

Yeah, I was thinking zeros.

I wasn't even thinking baseball!

L-girl said...

OTT

Zenslinger said...

It's interesting that the San Francisco Giants went through two young speedy outfielders in Rajai Davis and Fred Lewis before giving up on them. Now both are having successful years batting leadoff for teams in the supposedly tough AL. Lewis had a leadoff HR vs Tampa today.

meunier said...

Zenslinger summed it up, but Rick Burleson is also the hitting and 1B coach for the Aces.

L-girl said...

Zen, that Reno experience sounds heavenly.

L-girl said...

Ish, I'm sure I should know this, but I haven't been threading. Why are you in Charlotte? Whenever I hear you are traveling, I know you are happy. :)

meunier said...

It was a crazy game yesterday, there were 5 HR including a grand slam

redsock said...

hit!

yook hitting .150 or so in last 10 gms

meunier said...

There's also a bar and beer garden in the left field corner.

Zenslinger said...

Oh. Duh. The River Cats are the Oakland AAA. I thought they were the Giants'...but of course that's Fresno.

Other River Cats I did not have my eye out for: John Halama, Lenny DiNardo, Edwar Ramirez.

meunier said...

Ugh, unos, dos, adios.

Ish said...

L, I'm here visiting my sister who moved down here for her new job in January. I flew down here last Tuesday and I'm going home on Thursday. I do like traveling. This was my first time ever traveling by air, which was quite an experience.

L-girl said...

I thought it must be sister-related. I just said to Allan, Ish must be visiting his sister or something.

Your first time flying, yay! How did you find it?

redsock said...

OMG McDonald looked at 5 pitches!!! (/deadhorse)

redsock said...

help us out, fy.

meunier said...

suck

nick said...

Fuck Yeah pulls a Fuck Eh...

nick said...

read back through the thread. Best as I've been able to observe on this blog, Allan has plenty of obsessions.

I like this question on Ask Amalie:
In the words of Bernie Carbo ... " I probably smoked two joints, drank about three or four beers, got to the ballpark, took some [amphetamines], took a pain pill, drank a cup of coffee, chewed some tobacco, had a cigarette, and got up to the plate and hit.’’ Amalie, I was wondering what is your game time ritual?

Pepe Lepew said...

Zenslinger said...

Oh. Duh. The River Cats are the Oakland AAA. I thought they were the Giants'...but of course that's Fresno.


Fresno? I once saw Will Clark make his professional debut for the Fresno Giants!

L-girl said...

bah

redsock said...

lackey just looked at that hit and it wasn't a real home run ...

nick said...

well, it definitely wasn't a walk.

Pepe Lepew said...

One time only...

Kiddo:

GO BLACKHAWKS!!!!

GET WELL JACOBY!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Why is he diving? He is no LBJ.

redsock said...

bad idea, microwave

nick said...

I feel like the fielding has been lack(ey)luster this inning. Not that a layout isn't trying, but seemed like they thought he'd just pull up at 2nd. and the fielding by scutaro earlier.

redsock said...

did not look like he had a decent chance to catch it either.

Ish said...

L, I was NERVOUS on car ride to the bus, from the bus to Boston, but then I got a little less nervous at the airport, especially going through security. I ordered some hamburger sliders but I could still only eat half of one, and I drank about 2/3 of a beer before final call for boarding.

I waiting until the last minute so I didn't have time to be nervous at all, then when I got on the plane I thought I'd be a nervous wreck, but I actually calmed down almost completely. Then the plane ride was perfectly fine. I took a bunch of pictures.

And by the way, having a netbook at the airport = Total win!

redsock said...

blue light off the wall -- thanks to wrong way gross!

Ish said...

The annoying part was thinking (and swearing I knew) the plane had wifi but it did not. Oh well. It was only a 100 minute flight.

L-girl said...

Ish, sounds great! And since the flight was fine and you weren't anxious, maybe the next time you fly you won't have the pre-flight jitters.

I also love having my netbook at the airport. So convenient.

redsock said...

time for run(s).

redsock said...

pls do not swing at shit.

thanx

meunier said...

This guy keeps throwing 20 pitch innings and getting off the hook :/

nick said...

not nearly as runny as my nose. and I haven't even got a cold.

sluckage.

L-girl said...

yes, it's annoying!

meunier said...

I don't think I've seen a double play go down that way before.

nick said...

How do you get a double when there's no pitch?

redsock said...

TBR - 000 00
TOR - 100 03

BAL - 000 00
MFY - 000 01

nick said...

I have to go put emma to bed. not sure if I want to walk away from this and wonder about the damage or watch it and see a great escape.

nick said...

one.
two.

L-girl said...

Come on Houdini

Patrick said...

I'm not going to say it yet, but this guy is in a straight jacket under water and might be about to get out.

Pepe Lepew said...

Oh, oh .....

redsock said...

lackdini.

L-girl said...

yay

whew

nick said...

three.

excellent! see ya in a while.

Patrick said...

HOOOOUUDINI!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Okay, now it's time to score some runs.

Pepe Lepew said...

Whew!

Zenslinger said...

Ultimate Houdini.

Benjamin said...

Bal - 1
MFY - 1

Pepe Lepew said...

[sigh]

redsock said...

nite nite. K

L-girl said...

pfft

Pepe Lepew said...

10 hits in 4-plus innings....

L-girl said...

Next time he should just stay underwater with the straightjacket on.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Are any of these hits really hits?

Pepe Lepew said...

Do I have permission to be thoroughly annoyed with John Lackey yet?

L-girl said...

Permission granted.

Benjamin said...

Home games against Oakland still give me PTSD.

nick said...

Emma and I were reading Abel's Island. "Dream and reality were the same."

La vida es sueños y los sueños sueños son.

Zenslinger said...

Lackey kinda sucks.

But the O's have the bases loaded vs. Javier Vasquez.

redsock said...

Do I have permission to be thoroughly annoyed with John Lackey yet?

You're 2 months late.

redsock said...

if you squint just right, lackey's ERA is 0.34.

L-girl said...

Wow Nick, that is beautiful.

Pepe Lepew said...

nick said...

Emma and I were reading Abel's Island. "Dream and reality were the same."


Hey, Island of the Blue Dolphins is a great book!

nick said...

way better than a Lackey game, that's for sure.

The Spanish is a saying I heard in class in high school and it has always stuck with me.

L-girl said...

I've been listening to cumbias, so my head is full of Spanish.

redsock said...

guy in "scoring position" does not move even to third on a single ... hmmm ...

nick said...

Oh yeah, I haven't read that one since I was a kid either. This is one of the bonuses of having a kid--sharing all these books with her (subjecting her to them). She really enjoys 'em, but isn't a voracious reader yet. Lots of starts but not enough finishes (in an afternoon after you can't do anything but read).

redsock said...

hey, papi, it's may 32.

nick said...

I'd say he held up.

Belt one, Beltre!

nick said...

Belted!

redsock said...

yes sir, nick!

L-girl said...

DONG BABY DONG!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Beltre the Belter!!

meunier said...

Adrian says YO!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Nice call, Nick

Pepe Lepew said...

Adrian Beltre SUCKS!

Channeling my inner Mariner!

nick said...

half swing garners a full out.

L-girl said...

I think we once had an extended OT thread about children's lit. Amy & I are both Charlotte's Web nuts.

The only bad thing is that Emma won't be reading any of my books when she gets a little older. Grrr, etc.

Pepe Lepew said...

OK, we got a game!

Benjamin said...

Can we call them homres if they're Beltre's?

nick said...

But Lackey comes back out. can't we cap him at...oh 40 pitches.

L-girl said...

I think we should!

FDR didn't seem to stick. I liked it but it didn't take.

Zenslinger said...

I think we can reasonably say that he is the Beltre of Homres.

nick said...

The only bad thing is that Emma won't be reading any of my books when she gets a little older. Grrr, etc.

why not? is it an OOP thing?

Benjamin said...

The problem with "FDR" is Beltre started walking. Now he has to settle for a boring nickname like "Snake-eyes".

L-girl said...

No, it's an unpublished thing.

L-girl said...

The problem with "FDR" is Beltre started walking.

It's a miracle!

Amy said...

Evening, all. Just checking in for a bit. I left dinner and the score was 4-0. Imagine my delight to come home to 4-3!

And yes, Charlotte's Web---one of my two favorite childhood books along with The Phantom Tollbooth. Those two books turned me on to reading and changed my life forever. There are others in my top ten, but those are my top two.

And Lackey---definitely lacking.

nick said...

I recall the Charlotte's Web conversation. The Phantom Tollbooth is another favorite of mine for sure.

nick said...

oh, and hi!

L-girl said...

The Outsiders
A Wrinkle in Time

Many others, but those are #1 and #2

Patrick said...

Oh Lackey....

L-girl said...

Although CW is one of my all-time fave books ever ever

OK, I will stop now.

Stopping... now.

Benjamin said...

I remember loving A Wrinkle in Time. I can't for the life of me remember what it was about.

Amy said...

A Wrinkle in Time, for sure. I appreciated it even more when I read it to Rebecca. There were layers there I never saw as kid.

L-girl said...

It's about fighting totalitarianism. A family whose father has been taken away. Kids do some crazy time travel thing and bring him home.

L-girl said...

A very multilayered book, very sophisticated.

Amy said...

A Wrinkle in Time was about two kids, a sister and brother, who somehow end up in a journey through the wrinkle in time. It's got layers of psychology, morality, Christian symbolism, etc., that were lost on me as a ten year old. I saw it more as an adventure story, which it is, but much more.

Amy said...

Oh, yes, and the political layers as well. Of course, Laura, you would remember that!

Pepe Lepew said...

We loved a Wrinkle in Time!

We're reading The Graveyard Book now.

Kids today like being scared a lot more than when I was a kid.

Amy said...

Maybe in the off season instead of reading Infinite Jest we should reread a Wrinkle in Time.

:)

L-girl said...

I was completely unaware of Xian symbolism until pretty recently. To me they were freedom fighters against fascism.

L-girl said...

Ha ha, that's a good one, Amy. I think we should read Dickens. Just as fat as IJ but we'll all understand it.

nick said...

A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorites. A friend of mine gave it to emma for her birthday this year, but I'm not sure she's quite there yet. soon I hope.

The Chronicles of Narnia were what really got me reading. Read them the summer after 2nd grade and then every year after that into high school.

Lots of Happy Hollisters, Boxcar Children, Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Tom Swift, and countless other series.

Something Wicked This Way Comes was (and is) a big one for me.

L-girl said...

Kids today like being scared a lot more than when I was a kid.

It's amazing how huge kid horror is. HUGE

nick said...

B2BBB.

L-girl said...

From the Mixed Up Files of...

I said I was stopping. Now I am. Here I am. Stopping now.

redsock said...

nice work! BB & BB!

L-girl said...

Read them the summer after 2nd grade and then every year after that into high school.

This is one reason I love children's lit and loved to write it and think about it. Books live for young readers in such a different way, so intense.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

A Wrinkle in Time is my #1.

From the Mixed Up Files...is my daughter's.

I think it's time for me to reread A Wrinkle in Time...again. It's been awhile.

L-girl said...

Mrs G, that's great

I re-read a whole bunch of children's and YA books a few years ago. It was so much fun.

Amy said...

Dickens would be good. I still remember reading David Copperfield. I bought a used copy at a book fair and devoured it.

nick said...

And A Wizard of Earthsea while your at it.

I'm a big fan of children's literature, especially that world of "young adult" fantasy. So much good stuff can be found there. And dreck, but that's everywhere.

Patrick said...

Time to cash in!!!!

Benjamin said...

Now would be a good time to cash in on some base runners.

Benjamin said...

Time to cash in!!!!

GET OUT OF MY MIND

nick said...

If the Sox don't capitalize on this I'm going to kick a puppy. Or at least draw a picture of one and scribble on it viciously.

redsock said...

we need at least 2 now.

L-girl said...

I am reading Dickens right now, that's what made me think of it. Little Dorrit.

Oh shit. Squander but tied.

Benjamin said...

I miss non-slumping Pedroia.

redsock said...

BULLSHIT. jesus

L-girl said...

Hide your puppies

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Time for a two out rally?

Patrick said...

2 more, V-Mart, bat yourself in.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

V-Mart is a monster.

L-girl said...

Extra Extra Mart !!!!!

Amy said...

YES!!! VMART! And we take the lead!

nick said...

Puppies almost in the clear. 3-2B.

redsock said...

nice day at the office for wictor

Amy said...

Puppies are safe. Phew.!

L-girl said...

Nice catch by that fan, didn't even spill his beer

redsock said...

if not kicked, the puppy should be at least slapped. bad DP.

Zenslinger said...

The Wrinkle in Time sequels were great, too.

L-girl said...

She died not long ago, Madeleine L'Engle. I blogged about it so it had to be in the last 6 years.

nick said...

I remember reading your post on that. She died the day before my birthday.

L-girl said...

No way! You've been hanging around a long time. :)

nick said...

Looking back at it, it appears to be Amy's first foray into the comments on WMTC.

Also, unpublished unschmublished. The future is young, so to speak and the modes of distribution are fascinating these days.

go MDC!

redsock said...

tor 5-3, tb has 2 on with 2 outs in top of 9th, maddon just got tossed

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes Zen, the sequels are great.

A Swiftly Tilting Planet, A Wind in the Door...
Any others? I don't remember the plots as well on these because I haven't read them as much. Maybe I'll reread the whole series.

I tried to read an autobiographical book of hers not too long ago. I couldn't get into it.

L-girl said...

Well thanks, but my fiction is unpublished and will remain so. I moved on. Published a ton of other stuff, so that helped. But it sucks anyway.

L-girl said...

although unschmublished is a nice word

Zenslinger said...

A Wind in the Door, then Planet. If there were others, they were latter-day sequels.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

A triple for Hall!!

redsock said...

now THAT was misplaying a ball!!!!

nick said...

Jesus, he can't play the wall.

run(s)!

Benjamin said...

Oakland doesn't have a clue how to play the Monster.

meunier said...

Did that get out of here?

Amy said...

Love that insurance run!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Bases loaded for FKR

Amy said...

OK, I am outta here. GO SOX!

nick said...

I enjoyed writing that word. Maybe you could pull a Mark Twain. If the planet still exists, science might be far enough along for emma to read 'em then.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Toronto walks in a run. 5-4, bases loaded, 2 outs

nick said...

All walks in that inning for TB get the third out dammit!

Joe Gravellese said...

Joe West thinks the A's play appallingly slowly

L-girl said...

Better to just move on. It pained me for long enough. It was good to find out there were other things in the world to do that would make me happy.

redsock said...

flipped over

7-5 rays.

FUCK THE FUCKING JAYS

nick said...

Fucking Rays. Fucking Jays.

nick said...

fair enough, L.

redsock said...

that cito -- what a fuckin miracle worker.

johngoldfine said...

Are writers supposed to be happy? News to me....

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Buck Martinez: "The wheels have come off here in the ninth." No shit.

1 hit
5 walks
4 runs?

Gregg giving umpire (Angel Hernandez) an earful as he walks off the mound during pitcher change and gets thrown out.

redsock said...

is cito even still there?
who cares.

nick said...

5 BB, a stolen base, a wild pitch, a double, what else? ugh.

and I see the Jay's pitcher was ejected. fun inning.
