G79: Rays 9, Red Sox 4

Rays    - 000 300 060 - 9 11  0
Red Sox - 000 001 030 - 4 8 1
Manny Delcarmen faced five batters in the eighth inning. Single, RBI double, single, walk, 2-RBI single. They all came around to score, as Jason Bartlett hit a three-run home run off Ramon Ramirez to cap the six-run inning. MDC: 0-4-5-1-0, 14.

The Sox rallied a little bit -- singles by Marco Scutaro and Eric Patterson, a two-run double from David Ortiz and a sac fly from Adrian Beltre -- but that was it. Ortiz also doubled in the sixth, driving in Patterson.

Boston missed a chance to move into a first-place tie with New York. A victory tonight also would have given the Red Sox more wins than any team in MLB. The Yankees had only two hits in a 7-0 loss to the Mariners. Felix: 9-2-0-3-11, 115; his complete game followed Cliff Lee's CG win on Tuesday.
Example
Matt Garza / Daisuke Matsuzaka

Update: Drew scratched with a stiff neck, replaced by Darnell McDonald.
Scutaro, SS
Patterson, LF
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Drew, RF Hall, 2B
Hall, 2B Varitek, C
Varitek, C McDonald, RF
Cameron, CF
Dustin Pedroia was taking ground balls on his knees earlier this afternoon, with teammates shaking their heads in amusement/amazement.

And: Mariners/Yankees, 7 PM
Example
June 30:

1913: The Reds and Cubs use one ball for the entire game.

1983: Lance Junker of the Redwood Pioneers (California League) hits two grand slams in the ninth inning against Reno.

A stiff neck, ? Just when I start to love JD he gets a hangnail...

9casey said...

Over/Under on how many times Garza spits on himself tonight?

redsock said...

FUCK

got the crybabies' feed

(might be a jazz night)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

got the crybabies' feed

Me too. We'll see if I am motivated enough to switch to computer sound.

redsock said...

no no-walker tonight.

redsock said...

TB has not swung at the first 8 pitches!!!!!!

Is OB freaking out?

redsock said...

yeah, i really want the crowd noise, but ...

redsock said...

staats is working with brian anderson, which may be okay. i have no idea, but he has to be better than kennedy.

redsock said...

sigh

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Strikes please.

westcoastsox said...

Rays have swung at 3 out of 22 pitches

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Now that's some patience.

westcoastsox said...

4 out of 27

redsock said...

i wonder what the fewest swings in a game by a team is.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Is their strategy to take two strikes each AB?

redsock said...

Vintage Matsuzaka.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

My son: Typical Dice-K inning if I've ever seen one.

redsock said...

yep - if the proverbial spaceman came to earth and asked to see an inning that captured the essence of dice, that inning there would do just fine.

redsock said...

... so why isn't that son posting his own thoughts?

redsock said...

(granted, it is easier to crack wise and have someone else type it out. ideal, really.)

RedSoxDiehard said...

I'm glad I picked last night to go. I can't stand Garza, and Dice-K is, well, y'know, Dice-K.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I don't know. I know he visits your site, but no posting.

redsock said...

okay. :>)
no pressure.

(we used to have a mom-son posting combo, but not this year.)

redsock said...

welcome to boston ..... asshole.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

He was safe.

redsock said...

rays show flo's dong from last night -- fucking majestic thing of beauty.

redsock said...

and the whining begins ....

redsock said...

SEA: 01
MFY: 0

Bradley dong

redsock said...

rays tv still whining: shoppach K was same as called ball to flo.

god. it must be a clear job instruction.

redsock said...

rays have posted "email the booth" like 3-4 times already tonight. so i did:

"for years, i have heard rays tv announcers whine about calls going against tampa hitters, pitchers and runner. staats and whoever has been with him (magraine, kennedy, anderson) always whines when anything goes against the rays. is it a job requirement? (you guys are actually famous among other teams' fans for it.) and tonight, it starts with the ball to ortiz and the strike to shoppach. ... and yet, when a call goes in the rays' favor, you never say a thing. ... umpires blow calls, it happens all the damn time. and they go both ways. try to deal with it."

i doubt they will share it on air.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yea, doubtful.

redsock said...

i wonder how many emails staats gets about his hair.

fusionmouse said...

Castig Trup'd me!

redsock said...

sea 3, mfy 0 (top 3)

fusionmouse said...

Mariners lead 3-0 over MFY!

RedSoxDiehard said...

fucking majestic thing of beauty.

Yeah it really was. And it landed right where my 10th Man Plan seats are. (Of course I wasn't in those seats last night, but that's OK.)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

sea 3, mfy 0 (top 3)

Let me know when it's over. (But I don't mind the updates, I just won't go looking myself.)

fusionmouse said...

Garza 20 pitches 2 innings 1 hit.
Dice K 49 pitches 2 innings 1 hit.

Dice K giving fans their money's worth and management likes him cause he encourages heavy drinking by the fans!

Mmmm--beer.

RedSoxDiehard said...

Great email to the booth!

redsock said...

foxsportsflorida.com

and click on the rays logo.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Now they're talking about whether Rays should be buyers or sellers. WTH?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Could it be??????

redsock said...

yeah, the rays are 2 games out of the wild card on june 30. should they blow it up?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, OTT.

RedSoxDiehard said...

7-pitch inning. Yep, it's Dice-K alright.

fusionmouse said...

Wow that was fast! Maybe the concessions did a quick calculation and decided they might not have enough beer on hand for a full Dice-K night.

RedSoxDiehard said...

yeah, the rays are 2 games out of the wild card on june 30. should they blow it up?

Email the booth as tell them yes, they should. We can start by taking Crawford off their hands.

redsock said...

kristen: i don't think i have you linked on the right hand side, which is a bad oversight. i do have the uniform number url, but do you have a blog url to include?

redsock said...

more "email the booth" -- these guys are lonely!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Wow that was fast! Maybe the concessions did a quick calculation and decided they might not have enough beer on hand for a full Dice-K night.

Haha. I remember several years ago we were at Fenway during a very long rain delay. It was the last night either before a long away streak or maybe even before the All Star break. Anyway, they ran out of food before finally calling the game. No food to be found anywhere. Not many fans left and we ended up playing baseball trivia at a table with people we didn't know.

redsock said...

great discussion about jeff neimann. he has a 2.72 era (4th in AL?) but he apparently needs more wins to get any serious all-star consideration. however, he has pitched well, but has been unlucky and does not have the wins to show for it. so yeah he has that great ERA but he really needs a couple more wins to show everyone that he is a good deserving pitcher.

my fucking head hurts.

redsock said...

maddon is not that dumb. he knows that the rays' slump cannot be cured by lineup construction. ... nearing music accompaniment.

redsock said...

nice bunt!!!

Patrick said...

terrible bunt looks like the beginning of the houdini act

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I guess that's the alternative: If you don't bunt it fair, make sure it goes foul?

fusionmouse said...

"a horrible bunt"--DO

Patrick said...

Ugh, didn't happen this time.

Benjamin said...

Bleh.

redsock said...

thought he had a good bead on it

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Okay, I've got NESN announcers synched up with TV. That's enough of the Sun channel or whatever it is.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

It looked like he mistimed his jump.

fusionmouse said...

Radio announcers say ball should've been caught.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I think he should have caught it. My son says it would have been a great catch.

redsock said...

wtf was that, yook?

fusionmouse said...

Who's got a number for the batters faced who've reach a full count tonight?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Richardson warming up.

redsock said...

7 of 19

fusionmouse said...

"Already activity in the bull pen--Dustin Richardson up and throwing". I'm full of confidence now ;P

RedSoxDiehard said...

kristen: do you have a blog url to include?

Thanks!

Peter Abraham's Extra Bases--

"Top of the 2nd: Rays 0, Red Sox 0

Eric Patterson must not have got the memo. When you're an unknown player in your first game for the Red Sox ar Fenway Park this season, you're supposed to do something dramatic in your first at-bat. He grounded into a double play.

"Dude, c'mon," Daniel Nava said.

"Seriously," replied Darnell McDonald. "

redsock said...

Now Playing: Louis Armstrong & His Hot Five (mid-1920s).

redsock said...

rays fans at july 9 get a david price shirt, which includes the words "price price baby"

what year is this?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

CS!! Score some runs.

westcoastsox said...

"Ice Ice Baby" was voted by Blender Magazine as being one of the 5 worst songs ever made. Great that the Rays are honoring it.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Lots of fly balls.

redsock said...

FLO FLO BABY!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

PAPI!! That was so close.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Remy and Don talking about "a typical Dice-K outing."

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Really needed to get him to third.

redsock said...

dong pls

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well, this is an ugly inning.

RedSoxDiehard said...

So glad I went last night instead of tonight.

redsock said...

SEA 7, MFY 0 - final

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Thanks Allan!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

U-G-L-Y

redsock said...

mdc is not the answer

unless the Q is: who is pitching like shit?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I'm glad we saved his arm last night. WOW!!!

redsock said...

well, that about does it.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Ugh. What relievers will be available?

redsock said...

if choate stays in long enough, we can win this.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I love Papi's first pitch swinging.

From the spitter to the cusser.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

That's two good catches by him.

redsock said...

these outfield snags are pissing me off.

SoSock said...

mmmmmm, not liking the mood. We must be behind

SoSock said...

Just pulled up GDGD. Ouch. Not just behind. Getting our asses handed to us.

Oh well.......

Jr. All Star team lost tonight 2. Pretty much locks us out of the final round.

redsock said...

5+ runs pls

redsock said...

stoopid WSJ

SoSock said...

What a line for MDC - 5 atters, no outs, they all score. ERA = infinity

SoSock said...

On a better note - Dice apparently didn't suck TOO bad.

redsock said...

pfft.

SoSock said...

And Scutaro wastes no time making the water clean.
Oy

RedSoxDiehard said...

Hate that clean water.
