G74: Red Sox 13, Rockies 11 (10)

Red Sox - 000 420 320 2 - 13 15  2
Rockies - 200 006 012 0 - 11 18 0
Dustin Pedoria hit three home runs, including a two-run shot in the 10th, to lead the Sox to a wild victory in Colorado.

It was the first three-homer game by a Red Sox player since Kevin Millar went deep three times against the Yankees on July 23, 2004.

Pedroia reached base six times in six plate appearances, with a double in the first, a solo home run in the fourth, a walk in the fifth, a single in the seventh, a two-run homer in the eighth, and the two-run bomb in the 10th.

He scored four runs and tied a career high with five RBI (also on June 15, 2007 and September 2, 2008). Pedroia reached base six times on September 10, 2008, in a 14-inning loss to Tampa Bay (two doubles, two HBP, one walk, and one reached on error).

Jonathan Papelbon blew a two-run lead in the ninth inning, allowing three consecutive one-out singles. After the Red Sox took the lead in the top of the 10th, however, he got the Rockies in order in the bottom half.

Adrian Beltre singled, doubled, and homered, scoring three times and driving in three runs. Jason Varitek and Mike Cameron each had a two-run double.

The Red Sox and Rays are 2.0 GB the Yankees.
Example
Daisuke Matsuzaka / Jason Hammel
Scutaro, SS
Nava, LF
Pedroia, 2B
Ortiz, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Varitek, C
Cameron, CF
Reddick, RF
Matsuzaka, P
Mike Lowell will likely be placed on the disabled list before tonight's game because of hip discomfort. That will open up a spot for Matsuzaka.

The timetable for Josh Beckett's return in late July or early August.

On May 22, Hammel had a 7.52 ERA. In his five starts since then, he has allowed only three runs in 34.1 innings (0.74 ERA). Last Friday, he extended his scoreless-innings streak to 25.1. Hammel faced the Red Sox eight times in 2006-08 as a member of the (Devil) Rays.

The Rays beat the Padres 5-3 this afternoon to move into second place in the East. The Yankees, who are off tonight, are 2.0 GA of the Rays and 2.5 GA of the Red Sox. Boston is in third place, yet only one team in MLB has more wins.
Padres/Rays, 12:00 PM
Example
June 24:

1911 - Cardinals player-manager Roger Bresnahan is called out on strikes by umpire Bill Klem to end the game. When Bresnahan argues too long over the call, Klem punches him -- and is later fined $50.

2005 - The Mets become the first National League to hit three sacrifice flies in one inning. It happens in the second inning of a 6-4 win over the Yankees.

Special Chez L-Sock Guest: Tim!

redsock said...

Wimbledon note from earlier post: "Isner and Mahut obliterated the record for the longest set in Wimbledon history by 100 games (Mark Philippoussis vs Sjeng Schalken, 2000 Wimbledon, 20-18). Their fifth set ended 70-68.

Old record: 38
New record: 138

To break Bonds's 73 home run season by a similar amount, you'd have to hit 265 HR.

redsock said...

Thought I would check EI to see what feed we are (probably) getting tonight. It says there is a Dual Feed, both networks. Hmmmm ...

redsock said...

Wine is being drunk, steaks are on the grill!

redsock said...

no nesn...

L-girl said...

Here we are, me, Allan and Tim, full of steak, asparagus and red wine.

tim said...

Steaks were fantastic, so was gazpacho.

Rockies feed @ A+Ls, not so much.

redsock said...

steak, asparagus and red wine

not necessarily in that order.

Amy said...

Good evening, Tim and hosts. Hope it is cooler up there in the Yukon. Damn hot here in New England. Not sure how long I can hold this laptop on my lap.

I am STILL steaming about last night. And tonight is DiceK. A Red Sox fan can only take so much agony. I hope DiceK does not disappoint.

Amy said...

Your first gazpacho, right, Tim? I used to love it...til I could no longer digest raw tomatoes and onions. I miss it.

L-girl said...

It's freezing up here in the Yukon. We're wearing Gore-tex and 3 pairs of socks.

L-girl said...

I must say I didn't have any agony last night. Just bloody marys.

Amy said...

I should have been drinking. Tonight at least I had a beer...with fruit in it, in honor of Ish. Blue Moon with a slice of orange.

Amy said...

It's freezing up here in the Yukon. We're wearing Gore-tex and 3 pairs of socks.

That's why we in the States love you Canadians. You all are so funny.

L-girl said...

fuck yeah-ouble!

tim said...

Yeah, first gazpacho. Was tasty, I've gotta make it sometime now that L's given me the secret recipe.

Its only a matter of time before I won't be able to eat that stuff, with the way the hole in my stomach is going.

And Amy, its time to put that steam towards spinach!

redsock said...

amy - gotta drink to keep up.

Amy said...

Steamed spinach I can always eat! I love spinach.

LOB 1

redsock said...

there goes the no-walker

Amy said...

Uch, DiceK being DiceK already.

One beer is not enough to watch this.

RedSoxDiehard said...

OK, Dice-K, you can get started now. No need to wait until there's 3 guys on base...

L-girl said...

Make yourself a cosmo?

redsock said...

you KNEW he was picthing
gotta stock up

RedSoxDiehard said...

Where the heck is Felix Doubront when you need him?

tim said...

I dunno about felix, but dice better reach into his bag of tricks soon.

Amy said...

If I were hanging out with you guys, I would be having more. But sitting here and drinking by myself? Too sad and pathetic.

Harv is here, but he is working, not drinking and watching baseball.

L-girl said...

OUTS PLEASE

Amy said...

I want a pitcher, not a glass of water.

Actually, I am having a glass of water right now.

redsock said...

water ain't gonna get it done.

L-girl said...

Allan: is it possible the Japanese word for "ball" sounds exactly like the word for "out"?

Amy said...

Oh, man.

tim said...

thanks dice. making me walk home.

Amy said...

Nope, water is not doing it for me.

I need a pitcher...of beer.

redsock said...

amy's buddy -- richardson -- up

Amy said...

So... Beckett is out til late July, at the earliest. DiceK cannot pitch. Lackey can hit but not so sure about his pitching.

Can we survive on HH, Lester and Wakefield? Are there pitchers we can get somewhere?

L-girl said...

THERE ARE NO OUTS

redsock said...

yer callin' a hell of a game, cap'n cactus.

tim said...

send farrell out to the mound:

"What the SHIT dice? dont you know tim, allan and laura are watching the game together!?? get your shit together!"

L-girl said...

One game at a time, eh

RedSoxDiehard said...

Argh, I should have eaten supper earlier. I forgot the old rule that you should allow 30 minutes after eating before watching Dice-K pitch.

Amy said...

Sometimes I still think back to all the excitement about DiceK and wonder...WTF? who is this guy?

Amy said...

Hey, it's not Tek's fault that Dice K can't find the strike zone.

Amy said...

I hear Richardson and I think either Elliot or Bobby. Weird, huh?

L-girl said...

nice!

Amy said...

There are TWO outs!

Amy said...

36 pitches. Maybe he can get through three whole innings.

L-girl said...

I forgot the old rule that you should allow 30 minutes after eating before watching Dice-K pitch.

I had a great laugh over this.

tim said...

where the hells the thin air i keep hearing about?!

redsock said...

K 3 of last 4 batters

DICE!

Amy said...

Tek threw out a baserunner!

L-girl said...

WHOA!!!!

tim said...

HAHAHAHAHA

Amy said...

Perhaps DiceK can get a hit? LOL

Amy said...

Pretty quiet here tonight. No one wants to watch DiceK?

tim said...

You're just missing out on all the action in Mississauga, Amy!

Amy said...

I like translating comments into French or Italian every now and then with the Google translation function. We all sound so cosmopolitican.

Amy said...

Cosmopolitan.

And I didn't even drink any.

Amy said...

Yes, Tim, it sounds like more fun up there than down here where I am entertaining myself by translating comments.

L-girl said...

Except we're all freezing out on the tundra. I think I see a polar bear outside.

Amy said...

Polar bears! So what is all this nonsense about global warming anyway?

L-girl said...

Oh god Dice, like we need you to hit batters.

tim said...

No polar bears, only Tala.

L-girl said...

Tala the arctic wolf

Amy said...

Tim, did you bring your dog?

Amy said...

Fuck yeah!

tim said...

FUCK YEAH DONG!!!!!

redsock said...

FY HR

L-girl said...

FUCK YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Laser! FY!

L-girl said...

Diehard, it's nice to see you in gamethreads now. I haven't been around much, but still, welcome.

L-girl said...

Shift this! says Papi.

Amy said...

Hey, we are alive!

RedSoxDiehard said...

A Beltre half-homre

tim said...

Winston's at home with Steph, I'm living at a university in Toronto for the month of June (long story) which is pretty close to Allan and Laura's so we decided to get together for this game!

He would love the backyard and would totally annoy Tala/Cody soooo much, hopefully we'll bring him for the wmtc bbq in august.

YAAAAY Bogar!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

FY!!

I'm here, but also spending time with my daughter and meeting her boyfriend for the first time. So, not posting much.

Enjoy your time and company up there Tim.

Amy said...

Come on, Tek. Be hot 2010 Tek, not cold 2009 Tek.

Amy said...

Meeting the daughter's boyfriend---that's always awkward. How old is she?

Amy said...

Tek showing frustration.

redsock said...

ack - no sac? fuckin' cactus

RedSoxDiehard said...

Diehard, it's nice to see you in gamethreads now. I haven't been around much, but still, welcome.

Thanks! I had to boycott my own site when I had a Papi-basher at the beginning of the year, but it's much more fun with a good crowd here.

Amy said...

YES!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

She's 20. She just got back from studying abroad for a month and will be spending the rest of the summer in Williamsburg (VA). She's only home for a week or so.

Not awkward at all. Nice guy. And, he's a Red Sox fan.

tim said...

YAYYYYY NEW DR. MIKE DOUBLES!!!!!!

RedSoxDiehard said...

OK, here's the thin air!

L-girl said...

Here we go!

Amy said...

We lead. BUT remember we need at least a 4 run lead to keep Papelbon from pitching.

RedSoxDiehard said...

And, he's a Red Sox fan.

Sounds like a keeper!

Amy said...

Wow, a Sox fan! That's all I need to know. :)

L-girl said...

Boycott your own site? Why not just ban the miscreant?

Amy said...

Maybe our pitchers really should be in the NL.

tim said...

DICE RIBEYE!

L-girl said...

Dice does something good tonight!

L-girl said...

Amy, you're already complaining about Papelbon?? :)

L-girl said...

Hit parade

Amy said...

I would trade Papelbon now before he loses all value. Yeah, I do not trust him at all.

tim said...

This dice guy isnt all that bad anymore!

L-girl said...

But you know if we trade him, he'll turn into Mariano overnight

"Why can't we get closers like that?"

Amy said...

Back to the rickshaw story.

Amy said...

You are probably right---then he will say it was the pressure of playing in Boston.

Amy said...

Wow, nice!

L-girl said...

Nice catch! Dice says thank you.

tim said...

Hey, thats a speedy CF we got!

L-girl said...

We have the stupid Colorado feed, no rickshaw (pedicab) story here.

L-girl said...

speedy CF :(

Amy said...

Oh, well, you can just fill in the blanks. Jerry and Don STILL talking about it.

Amy said...

Hard to believe it is only the 4th inning. Last night we had to be in at least the 6th at this point. I will be turning this one off soon.

Amy said...

Hey, did you all see that ski boot on the field?

L-girl said...

This boot is unknown to us.

Amy said...

Yeah, I was just checking to see if anyone was here. Sort of like when I drop something absurd into something I am saying to Harvey to see if he was paying attention.

BELTRE belts it out!

tim said...

BEL-TRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

SNAKES ALIVE!!!!

Benjamin said...

Homre!

L-girl said...

BELTS ONE

tim said...

What's this aboot a boot?

L-girl said...

So there was no ski boot?

Benjamin: I was about to write homre, but I don't know why.

Amy said...

No, there was no ski boot. Just me being childish.

Amy said...

So apparently Beltre does not like anyone to touch his hair, and they were all trying to touch his hair when he returned to the dugout.

(Not sure they showed that on the CO feed.)

Benjamin said...

Laura: it's the citizenship talking.

Amy said...

The hair story, btw, is true, not another ruse by me to see if you are listening.

redsock said...

beltre hates when anyone rubs his head. he supposedly almost punched victor over it a few weeks ago.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Boycott your own site? Why not just ban the miscreant?

He was a long-time poster and I really only ban yankee fans and spammers. It was the part of the season when I was avoiding a lot of different sites and writers because the negativity and rudeness was getting to me. I had to laugh when I realized I was avoiding my own game threads forum. I just didn't want to have to argue every night, and if I ignored it, it would look like I was in agreement.

Amy said...

He seemed to be taking it in good humor this time.

Or humour, to you three.

Amy said...

OK, got to get some sleep. Enjoy the rest of the game.

meunier said...

What day are you going to one of the games @ SF?

meunier said...

Drew will get a PH here, Dice is done.

L-girl said...

Diehard, I hear you. I know what you mean. But if someone is driving you from your own site, you might have to bend your own rules. You should feel comfortable in your own home. IMO. IMNSHO.

SoSock said...

Wow, slow game. I got home earlier than this last night and it was already in the 7th. Or was that night before last? They all kinda run together this time of year.

L-girl said...

Yup, we took an oath to the Queen and how we have to say eh after every sentence and eat maple syrup every day.

westcoastsox said...

I'm going on Sunday @SF. When's Ellsbury due back, by the way?

L-girl said...

Good night Amy!

Probably too late...

Amy said...

Good night---I just came back to boot it down and go to sleep.

Hope they win!

meunier said...

I would look for a ticket on StubHub but I have family visiting this weekend.

SoSock said...

So, looking back thru the scorebox, appears that Dice walked 3 and gave up 2 hits in the 1st, but has been pretty good since. 1 more walk and 3 hits. About sum it up?

SoSock said...

MDC is being almost as effecient at screwing up a perfectly good game as Pap was last night.

tim said...

Pretty much, it was a dicey first. (ha)

And we went all Empire Strikes Back on Mr. Hammil there.

meunier said...

I have never thought much of MDC

Benjamin said...

I ate some maple syrup earlier tonight for no reason in particular. Does that make me Canadian?

SoSock said...

A dicey first? - badabing

Benjamin said...

MDC just loaded the bases for no reason in particular. Does that make him shitty?

I believe it does. I believe it does.

L-girl said...

I believe you are correct.

meunier said...

Some guy named Robert Manuel has a .95 ERA over 39 innings at the Paw Sox, why isn't this guy getting called up?

RedSoxDiehard said...

True, L-girl! But I've found it so much less stressful to just let redsock do all the game-thread work, and then just pop by when I get the chance. ;-) It's harder than it looks, so much appreciation!

L-girl said...

Benjamin: yes. But only if you say "eh" after you eat it.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Some guy named Robert Manuel has a .95 ERA over 39 innings at the Paw Sox, why isn't this guy getting called up?

He was with the team this weekend but didn't get into a game. He just got sent back down to make room for.... I forget who, Reddick?

L-girl said...

Oh fuck.

Diehard: he doesn't do any work, just complains about the announcers. :)

Benjamin said...

Why would I say that. Cold maple syrup on a hot summer day is very refreshing. I was hardly ambivalent.

Unlike about our relief pitching.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Can we send Dice-K in to clean up this mess and hope no one notices?

Benjamin said...

Yeah, sent down for Reddick.

SoSock said...

Is Bard the only serious pitcher we have in our damn pen?

L-girl said...

THERE ARE STILL NO OUTS

L-girl said...

SoSock: yes

meunier said...

We cannot get a break this series

SoSock said...

MDC - 3 batters faced, all on, 2 of them already scored. If Herrera scores he'll be in Papelbon territory!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Look out for The Knee!

Ooh, nice catch!

Benjamin said...

There's one.

With F5, Beltre avoids a throwing error.

SoSock said...

Pleassssse - Be Houdini Hideki

SoSock said...

I see out(s), and no run(s)!

YAY!

meunier said...

Isn't Olivo a switch hitter anyways?

SoSock said...

Wiggle Okie, wiggle

L-girl said...

But "eh" is not about ambivalence. It's about... I dunno. Being Canadian.

It's like saying "huh" or "yeah".

L-girl said...

Refreshing???

Benjamin said...

:(

SoSock said...

shit.....

RedSoxDiehard said...

Nice range by the first baseman!

meunier said...

Move your ass Oki!

SoSock said...

Legitimate infield single? Or single because you have a DH playing first?

Benjamin said...

FFS

SoSock said...

Per meunier - maybe a single because your pitcher didn't hustle?

L-girl said...

whoo hoo, free tacos

Benjamin said...

Infield single because Oki couldn't cover first in time.

SoSock said...

damn damn damn

redsock said...

yay - free tacos.

tim said...

i like tacos

meunier said...

This Colorado team looks like the 2004 Sox to me right now.

meunier said...

Death by 1000 cuts, a Texas league, 45 foot spin ball, slow pitcher..

meunier said...

Rockies have batted around now.

SoSock said...

ram ram - I'm heading to the shower. 5th night in a row of practice and it's hot as a mofo down here right now. 98 today. And BOTH teams practiced. Older guys 5:30 - 7. Jrs 7 - 9. I threw bp the to both teams Tuesday, 1 team last night, and 1 1/2 tonight. After half of the 2nd team my arm went on strike.

Benjamin said...

Runs, please.

meunier said...

I wonder if our bullpen didn't practice in the thin air here enough, they havn't been THIS bad.

L-girl said...

DNFTT PLS

SoSock said...

I wouild like to see us back in front when I return all refreshed and sparkly clean

RedSoxDiehard said...

Here we come!

Benjamin said...

Papi, cut this man.

westcoastsox said...

OK, now we're talking. C'mon big Papi.

L-girl said...

RSVP

redsock said...

good times time.

tim said...

"Boston's ready to get on a plane and head to SF"

Ya, ok then. They will do that, Rockies announcers.

After they beat your shit team

meunier said...

Anyone hear of the book or movie titled "In the time of the Butterflies"?

meunier said...

1 run game.

tim said...

passedoliva!

L-girl said...

Gotta leave the thread in order to stay awake... be back for dirty water.

meunier said...

CACTUS HALF DONG!

redsock said...

CACTI POWER!!!!!!!!!!

tim said...

CACTI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suck it, Rockies!

RedSoxDiehard said...

Tek!

RedSoxDiehard said...

I wouild like to see us back in front when I return all refreshed and sparkly clean

You called it. May your shower be clean but our water be dirty.

Benjamin said...

Some runs is better than no runs.

SoSock said...

Well now. Perhaps I should make more shower-time requests. Since that worked out so well, could someone fetch me a dirty martini and a nice plate of homemade pita slices and salsa?

SoSock said...

201?
