G73: Rockies 8, Red Sox 6

Red Sox - 000 204 000 - 6 12  0
Rockies - 022 100 003 - 8 13 0
It took only eight pitches for Jonathan Papelbon to give up the lead and the game, allowing a solo shot to Ian Stewart to start the bottom of the ninth and then a single and a one-out, game-winning, pinch-hit, two-run home run to Jason Giambi. It was Colorado's first win this season in a game in which they trailed after seven innings.

Lackey (6.2-10-5-0-7, 110) put Boston in a 4-0 hole, but he helped the comeback against Jimenez (5.2-10-6-0-7, 106; ERA now 1.60) with his stick. Daniel Nava had doubled home two runs in the fourth and he doubled again in the sixth, scoring Adrian Beltre. Then, with two outs, Darnell McDonald belted a two-run, game-tying dong to left-center. Lackey followed that with a double to deep center field and he scored the go-ahead run on Marco Scutaro's single to right. (Lackey came into the game with a career batting line of 1-for-31; he went 2-for-3!)

It was Papelbon's second blown save of the season, and his fourth loss, but it was especially painful because the Red Sox had managed to score six runs against Jimenez, who had allowed only three runs in April and four in May. In 13 of his 14 starts this year, he had allowed 0, 1 or 2 runs.

The Yankees beat the Diamondbacks 6-5 in 10 innings and the Rays lost to the Padres 5-4.
Example
John Lackey / Ubaldo Jimenez
Scutaro, SS
Pedroia, 2B
Martinez, C
Ortiz, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Nava, LF
Reddick, RF
McDonald, CF
Lackey, P
Adrian Beltre has an 11-game hitting streak (and has hit safely in 16 of his last 17 games). ... Daniel Nava has reached base in all nine of his major league games.

Also:
Padres/Rays, 7 PM
Yankees/Diamondbacks, 9:30 PM
Example
Lots of good stuff happened on June 23:

1910 - Three members of the New York Giants are jailed for attacking a fan who had been heckling them during a game in Brooklyn.

1946 - Eddie Waitkus and Marv Rickert of the Cubs hit back-to-back, inside-the-park home runs in the fourth inning, but Chicago loses 15-10 to the Giants at the Polo Grounds.

1963 - Mets outfielder Jimmy Piersall hits his 100th career home run and celebrates by running around the bases backward.

1981 - Pawtucket and Rochester resume and finish what is the longest game in professional baseball history. The game had been suspended on April 18-19 after 32 innings. The teams play only one inning, as Pawtucket scores a run for a 3-2 win in 33 innings. The time of the game was 8:05. There were 882 pitches thrown. Rochester's Tom Eaton, Cal Ripken Jr., and Dallas Williams each have a record 15 plate appearances.
Rochester - 000 000 100 000 000 000 001 000 000 000 000 - 2 18  3
Pawtucket - 000 000 001 000 000 000 001 000 000 000 001 - 3 21 1

Go for it, Laura. So far the drinking seems to be helping the team.

(I am abstaining---feeling the heat---so drink it for me.)

redsock said...

ubaldo runs allowed

april & may: 7

tonight: 6

Ish said...

I really hope Ubaldo doesn't lose any mojo for his next start. I'd be glad if only the Red Sox hit him hard.

Amy said...

Tim, take note: you are asking Laura for directions and also encouraging her to drink more! :)

tim said...

Fake 201 - BOOOOOOOO

Patrick said...

Sox scored more runs on Jimenez than he allowed in either April or May.

Ish said...

L, definitely another bloody mary.

PEER PRESSURE.

Patrick said...

Damnit, Redsock. More psychic posts.

L-girl said...

407 bills to dad! That's the way to do it then.

Keele to 407 to 427 south or 403. Tell me if you need our address.

Do you have my cell? If not I'll email it to you.

Tomw you have to tell me why you are living at York for a month!

tim said...

lol Amy. The directions are done with now, so I've just opened a beer myself!

Patrick said...

I really hope Ubaldo doesn't lose any mojo for his next start. I'd be glad if only the Red Sox hit him hard.

He's good, but I hope he comes to earth. I think Halladay is better and I want him to win the CY.

tim said...

Yup, I think you emailed me the address and I have it from other emails. I actually know it off by heart! haha, I'm good with finding places so it should be easy.

tim said...

HA!

NESN commercial for travel to Canada.

Amy said...

Tim, will you bring your laptop so all three of you will be commenting while sitting together?

I wish we could all be there!

tim said...

dicks (sic) on the pond in AZ. one out, top 3.

tim said...

I've gotta bring the laptop. Dunno how much threading will happen, but definitely some. I agree, JoS gathering in Toronto would be bomb diggity.

L-girl said...

I wish you could all be here, too! Hey, you're all invited. JoS2 late July...

And yes, we'll have our laptops.

Amy said...

Vmart not confident in Papi's fielding?

L-girl said...

Ok Tim, so you're all set. Email me if you need anything.

No need to bring anything, either, we're all set.

Amy said...

Lackey getting sharper now that he is the star hitter!

Amy said...

I promise one of these summers we will come to Toronto. But not this summer.

redsock said...

JoS2 on August 11-12, I believe.

L-girl said...

I just caught up on comments, I better go make that bloody mary! Peer pressure :)

(Amy, it's hot here too, but we're in A/C. )

mattymatty said...

RS - Thanks for the kind words about the Jimenez post. Much appreciated. I was so excited to see you'd quoted from me.

I'm a little under the weather today so I doubt I'll be writing much more but I wanted to write in and thank you.

Go Red Sox!

L-girl said...

Allan misunderstood my question, he thought I was asking about JoS1. JoS2 would be in August.

Of course Amy can't come, she'll be kvelling over her grandbaby!!

redsock said...

i thought L was asking for the exact date of JoS1. that's why she said late july.

ideally, if it happens, it would be wed 8/11 at skydome and thursday 8/12 afternoon at chez l-sock.

Amy said...

No AC in the cottage, just a little fan. It usually does not get too hot here, but today and tonight---hot and humid. Cooler now, but the heat sort of got to me today.

tim said...

wouldn't mind lackey pitching the 7th if he keeps rolling like this.

iirc, colorado had like 6 hits in the 2nd or something, and 9 now. so not bad.

Amy said...

Kvelling for sure!

Cassie not liking the heat much either. Poor doggie.

tim said...

Put this puppy away, David.

tim said...

Just talking about the wimbledon game now, get with the thread Don and Jerry! That is SO old news.

tim said...

Also, L - as a Canadian, you should be drinking CEASARS!!!!! None of this bloody mary stuff. Gotta go with the clamato.

redsock said...

cardinals get a run in the top of the 9th, beat the jays 1-0!

L-girl said...

I wouldn't think there'd be AC in a cottage on the Cape. The heat is tough on dogs. In NYC, on the top floor of our bldg, I would have the AC on 24/7 for the dogs. Our electric bills were insane in the summer, but I couldn't let the dogs suffer.

The blackout nearly killed us!

Ish said...

So Tim is living in York (or will be) and I'm living in York...? Of course different Yorks, but funny.

redsock said...

i assume L will be as understanding when i ask the thread "more wine?" and you all say yes!

L-girl said...

Tim, I thought of that. :)

But you know what, I made the gazpacho for tomorrow night and there was leftover tomato juice! I already had horseradish in the house from something else - and celery! So I had to go for it.

No mixes here, the real deal.

redsock said...

SDP: 000 021 101 - 5 8 2
FKR: 000 003 001 - 4 5 0

MFY: 101
ARZ: 20

Amy said...

We just give her lots of fresh water and keep her out of the sun. She seems okay, just a bit lethargic.

redsock said...

mdc and ubardo up

L-girl said...

And every time I see York University in the news, for a split second I think it says New York University.

tim said...

Horseradish eh? Interesting. I don't think I've ever actually looked up the recipe for a Bloody Mary, did not realize there's horseradish in it.

As for the wine, obviously. I hope we won't need to ask the thread tomorrow!

L-girl said...

Amy, right, it's easier out of the city, too. In an apartment, it was awful.

It was so humid here, today. Disgusting.

tim said...

"ubardo"

lol

Patrick said...

Wow, surprised Ortiz is still in there.

redsock said...

billof the cap high!

DRRRRRRRRRINK

meunier said...

David still has the defensive reflexes.

L-girl said...

Tomato juice, horseradish, tabasco, lime. You should have Worcestshire (sp? who cares, i'm drinking) sauce, too, but you can live without that part.

L-girl said...

shakespeare!

Amy said...

What did Tito just do and why?

redsock said...

tito showing off with the triple switch.

bard in
victor to 1B
cactus to C (i assume)

Ish said...

Big Papi Defense:

Lazy Fly balls: No like.
Laser Line Drives: Like.

Patrick said...

Joe just explained why Ortiz was still in.

NL gibberish, basically.

Ish said...

Careful, Tito. You used to manage an NL team and were FIRED.

Amy said...

It's the humidity that gets to me. We went to a shady area on one of the little ponds here. I just sat and read for a few hours without moving.

Amy said...

OK...so that is WHAT he did, but why?

L-girl said...

Allan needs to be encouraged to drink more wine like Dice-K needs to be encouraged to walk batters

Amy said...

I can't remember all the NL strategy.

L-girl said...

Like Yook needs to be encouraged to sweat

tim said...

So, the way I understand this, Varitek replaces pitcher and is hitting 9th (Tito did this so Bard wouldn't have to hit), Bard replaces V-Mart (to defer the pitcher hitting spot)

Amy said...

Jason Giambi???

Ish said...

HGH on deck.

tim said...

He's still alive?

redsock said...

tiz was the next to last out in the 7th, so tito can improve his D. bard goes into his spot. tek is now batting 9th.

Amy said...

Thanks, Tim. I take it his only choice was to take out Papi.

L-girl said...

The humidity is the worst. I have no tolerance for it at all. I dream of living in a place with no humidity. And cold weather all the time. Should be easy to find in Canada.

Amy said...

I am atoning for all those mean things I said about Lackey.

Just thought you should all know.

L-girl said...

Jason Giambi. Wow.

tim said...

So I was near this crazy NL logic - one minor error, Bard replaces papi.

If I was an NL fan, I would chuckle over these comments of us trying to dissect just what the hell is happening.

Ish said...

I don't like the humidity here but down in North Carolina it felt fine. The heat just feels not so horrible down there, where everything is air-conditioned and you don't have to worry so much about a/c cost since that's offset in the winter by not having to heat too much.

Amy said...

I like warm weather, even into the high 80s. But humidity is a killer.

Amy said...

I feel better knowing that I was not the only one a bit perplexed by the triple switch.

redsock said...

no, he had a ton of choices.

he could have had bard in the 9th spot, but then he would come up too soon and have to be hit for. so he puts the pitcher in a batting spot that just hit (so he will be up "last") and has a new position player in the 9th spot -- which is up 4th this inning.

Amy said...

Hard to believe I used to really enjoy all that switching to avoid having pitchers hit. Now it just seems to...bizarre.

tim said...

At least there's a bit more to the "manager" component in the NL

Amy said...

too bizarre

SoSock said...

C'mon guys. It's not that hard :)

Meaning the NL switches.
I actually enjoy watching a manager work a line-up, although I still don't enjoy seeing my starting pitcher running basepaths.
Of course, they rarely do. They would have to get on base first

L-girl said...

Maybe I'm drunker than I think, but I don't find the triple switch confusing at all.

L-girl said...

SoSock and I thinking alike

tim said...

So L-girl is hammered.

Also, I better not be let down with the pregame shots tomorrow! We might need the mojo to get into first!

redsock said...

try scoring the all-star game, when 6 batting spots change in one inning and it's all random (i.e., not 2b in the 2b spot).

tim said...

Adam LaRoche with a 2 run single in AZ, snakes up 4-2 now, still batting in the 4th with no out.

tim said...

silly allan, thinking we watch the all-star game

redsock said...

"The Pre-Game Salute To Kevin Millar"

L-girl said...

No way, I ain't doing no pre-game shots tomorrow night, I'll be asleep by the 3rd inning!

Not hammered yet, but on my way.

SoSock said...

Go rattlers!

L-girl said...

ROFL (thinking we watch ASG)

I sleep through it every year. Until last year, when I spent it watching Shakespeare. Now that is what I will do every year.

Amy said...

Like I said, I used to really enjoy all that strategizing. It's just very foreign now.

redsock said...

years ago. (jerk)

i needed to keep a piece of scrap paper for substitution notes!

Amy said...

And by Shakespeare, you mean Will. Not Bard.

redsock said...

can tek hit as well as lackey?

SoSock said...

I say do the shots!

OK, maybe do A shot.

L-girl said...

Yes, Will S. Going to Stratford again this year for the break, I'm really looking forward to it.

Amy said...

Sure would like some insurance runs.

SoSock said...

can tek hit as well as lackey?

ouch

Amy said...

HOLD THAT LINE.

L-girl said...

Oh sure SoSock, easy for you to say :)

KaKtus

tim said...

There's your answer, fishbulb.

redsock said...

i am out of practice with the NL games. i forget to put the new pitchers in the batting order and not just in the pitching stat boxes.

Amy said...

Fishbulb?

Ish said...

I tried scoring the ASG NL park once... I think I actually did it, but I'm currently blocking the headache out of my mind.

Melvin Mora! He still looks like he's crying.

tim said...

Simpsons quote! (fishbulb)

SoSock said...

L - Believe it or not I started typing "of course that's easy for me to say. I'm not the one doing them" then changed my mind.

Great minds think alike I hear

tim said...

filthy.

ubardo>ubaldo

4 outs on what, 12 pitches? me likey.

redsock said...

MFY: 101 0
ARZ: 200 2

L-girl said...

"And what about the porpoise?"

SoSock said...

re scorebooks. I love keeping them myself, although I don't usually carry one to the game. But I do hate the NL games when you have the 5 subs, therefore 6 different .players, in the 1 spot like tonight. The book just loses all semblance of order.
And I don't like a disorderly scorebook

tim said...

Way to go, Robbie Cano!

first pitch gidp to end the 5th in zona.

Amy said...

Bottom of the ninth, only a one run lead. Why do I wish I had been drinking?

tim said...

whose apparently made 6 outs tonight in his 3 ABs according to GDGD

(not sure if link will work)

redsock said...

time to get our snuff on.

L-girl said...

Somebody make Amy a drink, stat!

tim said...

I care about saves right now. Because I want Pap to get one!

Amy said...

SHIT. What did I say?

L-girl said...

Make it a double.

tim said...

yasoidjaslkdjalsdaskdj

fuck you bot.

redsock said...

so it's not 2007, eh?

Amy said...

I think it is time to let Bard be our closer.

Patrick said...

That took the wind out of my sails.

SoSock said...

That didn't take long!

L-girl said...

Fuckety fuck

Amy said...

I cannot believe it.

HE SUCKS.

Ish said...

Papelbon filtering out the dirty, now trying to clean the damn water.

meunier said...

I was worried about Paplebon getting no movement on his fastball in the Denver air.

tim said...

I wonder if the "Make some noise" graphic was flashing there, like it was last night.

Amy said...

Keep Lackey, turn in Papelbon for the soft serve machine.

tim said...

Papelbon is performing reverse osmosis on this shit.

SoSock said...

Atta boy bot. Just go ahead and serve 'em up

nick said...

what tim exuded.

L-girl said...

There we go. Clean water.

Patrick said...

Fuck. That was such a fun game too!

Amy said...

UN FUCKING BELIEVABLE.

I hate Papelbon. Since at least JOS1. I HATE HIM.

tim said...

Fuck this.

SoSock said...

I am not happy

tim said...

Bard - 12 pitches, 4 outs.
Papelbon - Less than 12 pitches, 3 runs, loss.

Fuck this.

SoSock said...

3 batters - a single and 2 home runs.
Yeesh

Ish said...

Fucking Britta filter Papelbon. Asshole.

Amy said...

Well, that ruined my night...

God, I hate him. Did I say that already?

meunier said...

That's his 2nd BS of the year, I'm going to blame this on the air in Denver.

meunier said...

I think we have to move Paplebon if he won't throw anything other than his fastball.

tim said...

And here come the yankees. Grrrreat.

Ish said...

I never really liked Papelbon but he was definitely fine and tolerable when he pitched well, and the dancing was pretty neat.

But when he doesn't pitch well? I mean, he pitched like he fucking has someplace he needed to be. "Here's a fastball for the taking. I need to go sightseeing."

meunier said...

Oh and thanks for making me listen to the goddam venga bus song.

Ish said...

On the bright side: Hello, Heidi! Loving the pink shirt.

redsock said...

And Dice shall lead us ....

tim said...

What the fuck does he need to sight see? Wasn't there enough rocky mountain foliage in the bullpen for him?

redsock said...

Jesus. Remy with the Kay-esque "OHHHHHHH, WHAT A HEARTBREAKING LOSS" shit.

I don't feel it. It's a loss -- like we thought we'd get with UB on the hill. We move on. Piss on it.

nick said...

pink shirt not showing up on GDGD. all in all: suck.

redsock said...

tomorrow:

steak, a mowed lawn, shots, vats of wine, dogs 'n dice ...

we cannot lose.

redsock said...

& go snakes.

tim said...

Piss on it indeed. Tomorrow we romp. Special JoS gathering romp. Of the record-breaking kind.

Ish said...

I'm pissed, but not heartbroken.

tim said...

that sounded creepy. very creepy. sorry guys.

tim said...

Bill hall is making 8.5 million this season? What the fuck?

So between him and lowell, thats 18 million dollars on the bench? Christ theo.

Not that I care about the money, but that would've been nice to put towards someone BETTER

The Omnipotent Q said...

Don't know if anyone wrote this, but the first home run was by Ian Stewart, not Seth Smith. Still painful no matter who hit it.

redsock said...

Corrected.
