G71: Red Sox 2, Dodgers 0

Dodgers - 000 000 000 - 0  4  1
Red Sox - 101 000 00x - 2 7 0
A sweep of the Dodgers -- on the heels of a sweep of the Diamondbacks!

Buchholz struggled through a 30-pitch first inning and escaped a bases loaded/1 out jam. With one out in the second, he gave up a single and hit a batter. But he righted the ship, retiring the 14 of the next 16 batters and finished with a 6.2-3-0-3-4, 106 line. Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon closed it out.

Boston took a quick 1-0 lead in a very odd half inning that saw two infield singles, an error, a stolen base, an intentional walk, and two wild pitches. In the third, David Ortiz drove in Marco Scutaro with a fly ball to right. ... Dustin Pedroia had two singles, a triple, a stolen base and a run scored.

The Yankees beat the Mets 4-0 thanks to a grand slam by Mark Teixeira, while the error-prone Rays lost to the Marlins 4-1. As the Red Sox take the field tonight, New York is 1 GA of Tampa Bay and 1.5 GA of Boston.

At 1 PM:
Mets/Yankees
Rays/Marlins

June 20:

1916 - Tilly Walker's home run over Fenway Park's left field wall is the only home run the Red Sox will hit at home this season.

1965 - The Braves ban sportswriter Lou Chapman from their clubhouse for "stories of a negative nature" and their "disquieting" effect on players and management. The ban is rescinded a day later.

1980 - Five-foot-four Freddie Patek hits three home runs and a double in California's 20-2 rout of the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Patek will hit only five home runs all season.

A fuming Hal Steinbrenner informed Yankee Stadium executives that Lady Gaga is permanently banned from the team's clubhouse after her boozy antics -- including swigging whiskey and repeatedly fondling her boobs -- during a visit to the house that Ruth built Friday night, sources told The Post.

The songstress and two girlfriends sauntered their way into the Bombers' clubhouse -- without team approval -- and hung out for 30 minutes after the team lost to the Mets.

She met six players -- including Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano -- while the "Poker Face" singer kept slurring her words trying to say how much she loved the Yankees and how thrilled she was to be inside the exclusive area, sources said.

Gaga, drinking Jameson Irish Whiskey, was wearing a Yankees jersey half-unbuttoned, exposing her black bra, fishnet stockings and a bikini bottom.

But apparently she didn't think that was enough to catch the players' eyes, so she kept groping her chest over her jersey. ...

Swigging whiskey and fondling boobs?

That's how Babe Ruth spent most of his non-baseball-playing time. He would not approve of this decision by management.

Tilly Walker - girls team

Babe Ruth - all girls, all the time, and I suspect a dude now and again, too

Patrick said...

Yikes @ Gaga.

I feel like A-Rod is the only one who might fall for her bait.

redsock said...

PA has lots of tidbits that you won't get to hear DO say tonight.

The Red Sox play 22 of the next 31 games on the road. Only 9 games at Fenway over the next 39 days.

The Red Sox are pace to score 898 runs -- that would be 26 more than last season.

redsock said...

NYM - 000 000 000 - 0 4 0
MFY - 004 000 00x - 4 9 0

FKR - 000 100 000 - 1 6 1
FLA - 010 012 00x - 4 7 1

So:

MFY 43 26 ---
FKR 42 27 1.0
BOS 42 28 1.5

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Jonathan and I are off to Fenway. I'll try to post from the phone a little. It looks like the storm has passed.

GO SOX!!

redsock said...

Dice is set to pitch in Colorado on Thursday.

L-girl said...

I feel like A-Rod is the only one who might fall for her bait.

Joba looks like he would take anyone's bait.

redsock said...

espn is still using that stoned fu-manchu shot of yook -- it's a year and a half old!

redsock said...

dp, pls, hh.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Some boos. More applause and the applause lasted longer.

L-girl said...

I frequently see another James Loney, much more famous in Canada (this guy). The Christian Peacemaker Teams have their little office next door to the war resisters office.

I haven't introduced myself yet, I'm too much in awe of him.

L-girl said...

Claydini pls

L-girl said...

Or should I say HHoudini

redsock said...

a reminder: outs are good.

redsock said...

The extra "H" is for SAVINGS!

s1c said...

Not the way I wanted to see this game start.

L-girl said...

"Leave off the last S for savings"

What the hell was that? A mattress ad?

L-girl said...

K! Bye bye Mrs Garret

redsock said...

tootie says: "sit down"

A Conformer said...

Fucking ESPN Europe (or whatever it is we get here) is showing golf instead of the game. Maybe I should've checked the listings before staying up till 3AM...

L-girl said...

HHoudini it is!

redsock said...

a mere bag of sHHells

s1c said...

escape. Channeling a little Beckett coming off the field.

redsock said...

doink!

s1c said...

A little home town scoring for FY

redsock said...

That's a single?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?

s1c said...

Heads up by FY!!!

L-girl said...

And he makes the most of it, eh.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Hahaha, that was beautiful!

redsock said...

hometown scoring: 2 SB?

L-girl said...

Good thing this isn't the FKR. Their announcers claim Fenway is notorious for hometown scoring.

redsock said...

NICE!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

This is hilarious.

s1c said...

Sox showing off their speed!!!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Nice entertaining way to score a run. Now V-Mart needs to slam one outta here.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Ha, it was foul, instead of out #3. This keeps getting funnier and funnier.

Knee-power, please.

redsock said...

wow - what a train wreck.

A Conformer said...

Wow, it looks like I'm missing quite the mistake-fest by the Dodgers. Anybody have a lead on where to find a link to watch the game?

RedSoxDiehard said...

Wow, I'm exhausted and that was only 1 inning...

redsock said...

nothing hit out of the infield in that inning, but:

2 singles
walk
stolen base
throwing error
2 wild pitches

Patrick said...

I missed the half inning. Could I get a quick recap?

Patrick said...

Lol, NM. Redsock with the psychic response.

redsock said...

ofer: check your gmail

redsock said...

but that was not in order!!!!

redsock said...

and manny's single was the only ball LA hit out of the infield in their half.

redsock said...

man, what an odd game so far!

s1c said...

Tailor made dp!

Patrick said...

Nava is so cool.

Patrick said...

WP?

RedSoxDiehard said...

"It's too early to call Danny Nava a star."

It's also too early to call him Danny.

L-girl said...

Apparently it will always be too early for that - he prefers Daniel

s1c said...

At least they are making Furoda work

Patrick said...

wild pitch, ahh yes

Patrick said...

I miss May Clay.

redsock said...

oh god - is that schilling in there too?

Patrick said...

Joe and OB giving Manny a lot of credit for his work ethic while he was in Boston.

s1c said...

yes it is schill

L-girl said...

OH GOD SHUT UP DAVE OBRIEN STOP TALKING ABOUT MANNY YOU ARE SO STUPID AND CONDESCENDING SHUT UP SHUT UP

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


whew


sorry

L-girl said...

Patrick, but along with that credit, "he may not have run out every ground ball..."

Obie still beating that dead horse. As if all the other players run out every ground ball.

Patrick said...

HH making it look really painful, but protecting the goose egg.

redsock said...

ortiz hasn't run out 10 grounders since 2007 ...

...

how the hell do jon and joe get a word in with blabbermouth blabbing his blather?

redsock said...

60 pit for clay

Patrick said...

I agree, L. OB sounds like a real tool, trying to be everyone's friend.

s1c said...

That is Schilling in the box with Miller, etc. not o'brien.

Patrick said...

Scutaro has been such a great pick up.

redsock said...

L is bitching about Sox radio, while others are bitching about espn ...

s1c said...

Figured L was complaining about the radio crew

s1c said...

wow, these guys can hit the ball to the outfield.

redsock said...

And I haven't heard a word from any of them ...

Patrick said...

I love how 'Laser show' has become a mainstream association with Pedroia.

Meunier said...

Back from the Dom. Rep.

L-girl said...

I think I would know Curt Schilling if I saw him! :)

I'm at work w/ MLB Audio.

Yeah, "laser show", it's the thing now.

L-girl said...

Leaving soon... any guesses on what the score will be when I get home?

Patrick said...

4-0

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Kuroda is taking over 20 seconds between pitches

L-girl said...

Just for fun, I'll say 6-0.

Benjamin said...

Uhh, Miller, Schilling has more than two rings.

L-girl said...

I'll say he does.

redsock said...

I like all 3 of his rings!

L-girl said...

I'm sure everyone here does except me.

L-girl said...

See you all later

Patrick said...

Hey, maybe he'll make it through 6.

redsock said...

clay should be able to get thru 6

Meunier said...

Who the hell is Daniel Nava abd why is he here?

redsock said...

more psychic stuff!

redsock said...

Who the hell is Daniel Nava abd why is he here?

man, did you miss something!!!!

Amy said...

Checking in from Wellfleet. I heard OB and Castig saying nice things about Manny in the car.

As long as he doesn't help the Dodgers win tonight, Manny can do whatever he wants. But I want to keep pace with NYY and get ahead of FKR.

And I cannot tolerate Jon Miller so I probably will just watch online.

redsock said...

nava debuted last saturday (also)

Patrick said...

But I want to keep pace with NYY and get ahead of FKR.

Amen!!!

Meunier said...

Ive been in the Dominican Rep. for the last 2 weeks and so only able to read summaries and standings.

Meunier said...

oof.

redsock said...

They don't get JoS down there? :>)

Meunier said...

Cameron out on infield fly.

Amy said...

Well, now we know Joe Morgan did not put 100% effort in. (I still have ESPN on.)

Meunier said...

My only internet access in Santiago consisted of a Mailboxes Etc.

Meunier said...

Ningun al hotel.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I just got my picture taken with the world series trophies.

Beltre!!!!

Meunier said...

WEB GEM!

redsock said...

BELTRE TAMES THE SNAKE!

redsock said...

i'd like to have a pic with both of them. (i met the 2004 one in feb 2005 in boston at a sosh party)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

And, it was free. Cool to see the trophies. Not too excited about the picture.

redsock said...

i wish i had molested it a bit more. i just kinda of held on to one of the little flags.

redsock said...

since hitting carroll, clay has faced 10 batters and allowed only 1 walk. nice to see him battle thru the shitty first/second and not melt down.

Jere said...

ah, the "Donnie Ballgame" mistake (supposed to be Donnie Baseball)--one made by many kids in the tri-state back in the 80s. Add Jon Miller to the list. He's no Ted Williams, Jon.

s1c said...

Early day tommorrow, so off to bedroom and the radio.

Later

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Re manny. My son says that you have to ask all the people who boo him if they would rather have no manny or 2 WS championships.

redsock said...

... or even one championship.

Patrick said...

Double H is cruising!

redsock said...

HH PC: 30-14-16 12-16-11 = 99

that sinking liner to nava was his only out not in the infield tonight.

Patrick said...

Agh, someone must be warming, no?>

Benjamin said...

That ground rule double wasn't an out in the infield either.

Meunier said...

Hu's on first?

Patrick said...

Time for Bard to shut it down.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Standing o for HH

Patrick said...

Bard will crush your hopes and dreams with only one pitch!

Amy said...

A bit early for Bard, no? Guess it was one out, so he will still do the 8th.

redsock said...

that's when we needed him.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Poker face between innings:)

redsock said...

plus 1 pitch and a day off tomorrow = more bard in the 8th

SoSock said...

Woo woo.
Nice. I see Clay struggled a bit early but he seems to be on a roll now. Hopefully the big count early on won't make him leave TOO early.
Kids took me out to my favorite restaurant downtown for Daddy's day. Speaking of, Happy Same to all you daddys around JoS. Been watching since the end of the 5th, but been on the phone.
Welcome home Meunier. Did you see any sandlot ball down there? There have been, you know, a couple or 3 pretty decent ballplayers who came out of those fields.

redsock said...

ooo, that strike 3 pitch was criminal.

redsock said...

bard's last hitter
jeemer up

Amy said...

Manny...do not piss me off.

Amy said...

Phew---Miller (who I still hate) had me fooled.

redsock said...

thought we'd see jeemr for loney

whew-- nava!

Amy said...

Mrs G, are you at Fenway?

Meunier said...

No I was too busy looking at the only thing better in the DR than the baseball, the women.

Patrick said...

I suspect we'll see a sweaty dong here.

Amy said...

FUCK YEAH!!!! TRIPLE!

Patrick said...

KAPWANNNGG!!!!!

Amy said...

Send him home, Papi.

SoSock said...

A trio of bases for Petey!

redsock said...

some IN-surance

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes Amy. Good times

redsock said...

torre merely rearranging the deck chairs ...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Ha, I was typing good times while Flo was up but it didn't help

Patrick said...

Only sweaty hacks. Youk's had a bad night.

Amy said...

Where are you sitting? Great game to be there for.

What else will you see in Boston?

L-girl said...

Got home from work... and the game is not on!! The Rogers sports station that always shows the ESPN game switched over to its highlight show!! WTH???

redsock said...

Beltre with an AL-best .403 average with RATS

Amy said...

Wow, that was fast.

SoSock said...

Damn, close!

redsock said...

3b ump shoulda blown that call...

Amy said...

Damn.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Amy. I have an autism conf in Waltham and my son is looking at Berklee

Amy said...

OK, I am going to breathe deeply and close my eyes while Pap pitches.

Amy said...

Berklee---I assume he is a musician---good for him!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

One

Meunier said...

One.

L-girl said...

Hey, Patrick was right! (Score when I got home)

L-girl said...

Oh never mind, not so

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Two

Amy said...

One more, Pap.

Meunier said...

K

Amy said...

Torre not looking too happy.

SoSock said...

Nice....
Looks kinda like a guy we used to have here.
Oh yeah, it was him

Amy said...

Sweep of dirty water!

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

SoSock said...

The air may be dirty in LA but the WATER is dirty in Boston!

Amy said...

Yes, Pap looking quite pappy.

redsock said...

re torre:

"that's a shame."

L-girl said...

Don't drink the water! It is SWEEPING DIRTY!

johngoldfine said...

Filthy!

SoSock said...

Aaaaall abooooaaaarrrrd!

Patrick said...

SECOND PLACE!!!!!!

Meunier said...

La agua esta sucia, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

L-girl said...

Looking thru the thread, I thought this was funny

Phew---Miller (who I still hate)

Because otherwise we might have thought you now liked him, Amy! Thanks for clarifying!

Ha ha, Amy can't even type his name without reminding us how she hates that man.

L-girl said...

Standings are looking mighty dirty, too. Yee-hah.

See you all Tuesday! Although I'm sure we'll all see each other tomorrow somewhere or other.

Amy said...

Yes, I am nothing if not consistent.

Good night, all. Back to NESN announcers for a while now. :)

redsock said...

2 sweeps in a row and 8-1 vs the NL so far this time around.

redsock said...

10-2 vs the NL overall this year .. onto colorado!

redsock said...

gotta finish up some stuff at work -- then i am off for 11 DAYS!!

(firm is shut down next weekend because of the G20)

RedSoxDiehard said...

Water as clean as Pedey's and Nava's uniforms!

SoSock said...

Off for 11 days - Hot Damn!
Enjoy

Michael Holloway said...

I've noticed you stopped including the Jays in your division sum ups lately... They aren't out of it yet, in my opinion.

MFY 43 27 -
FKR 42 27 .5
BOS 43 28 .5
SBJ 38 32 5

Stupid Blue Jays are only a decimal point behind after all.

redsock said...

They aren't out of it yet, in my opinion.

Nevertheless.

Michael Holloway said...

Point taken.

L-girl said...

Being "out of it" implies they were once in it.
