G81: Red Sox 9, Orioles 3

Orioles - 000 010 002 - 3  7  2
Red Sox - 400 020 03x - 9 14 0
Lester (7-5-1-1-7, 100) stymied the Orioles yet again -- and his teammates struck early for an easy victory.

Lester loaded the bases in the top of the first with one out, but got Adam Jones to GIDP to wriggle out of danger. After that, he was solid. Jones was the first of 10 straight batters Lester set down through the fourth. He gave up a run on three hits in the fifth, and retired his last seven batters. Ramon Ramirez and Robert Manuel finished up.

RBI doubles from Kevin Youkilis, J.D. Drew (2 RBI), and Daniel Nava gave Boston a 4-0 lead in the first. Yook blasted a hanging slider over the Wall for a two-run dong in the fifth. Two more run-scoring doubles in the eighth, from Mike Cameron and Ortiz, along with two errors pushed the Sox's lead to 9-1.

In addition to his two doubles, Ortiz also singled, walked and scored twice. Drew doubled, singled twice, and walked. Nava had two hits and Eric Patterson singled, walked, and scored twice.

The Yankees scored 11 runs in the third inning this afternoon and beat the Blue Jays 11-3. The Rays beat the Twins 8-6. The East standings remain the same: Red Sox 0.5 GB, Rays 2 GB.
Example
Jeremy Guthrie / Jon Lester
Scutaro, SS
Patterson, 2B

Youkilis, 1B
Drew, RF

Guthrie and Lester faced each other on June 5, when Boston scored six runs in the ninth and won 8-2. Guthrie also started in Fenway on April 23.

Boston is 0.5 GB New York.
Blue Jays/Yankees, 1 PM

FKR/MIN just started

Ish said...

I don't normally advocate the viewing of FOX baseball but Kevin Millar is doing the Mets/Nats game with Joe Buck. This is actually pretty good. Millar is being his normal, hilarious self. He's not being watered down here, except by the FCC.

redsock said...

Cabin is a natural. He's witty and funny, but I have not heard enough of him to know how solid his analysis is.

I also wonder how his persona will evolve when he is 5-7 years away from playing the game (assuming he keeps doing this) and he does not know so many players like he knows the ones playing now.

Globe:

Buchholz did not throw a bullpen session today. He threw on flat ground. His start might be bumped from Monday to Tuesday.

Delcarmen's MRI was clear re structural issues.

Hermida took "aggressive" swings off the tee and will take BP on the field Tuesday or Wednesday.

I still can't believe we account for over 1/5 of the O's wins this year.

The Blue Jays leadoff hitter and DH today is: Nick Green

Ha ha ha. No really, who was it?

How come I just heard Castig say NYY won but here it says they lost? Please confirm or deny.

L-girl said...

Oh. Those are not two separate 1 s.

Never mind.

L-girl said...

I'm still hoping to find out why Markakis is a whore. Maybe Meunier will stop by and tell me.

redsock said...

He fucks us [over by hitting well against us] for money? (We're not the ones paying him, but maybe that doesn't matter.)

redsock said...

At least we have now a catcher who will probably throw down to second on every SB attempt.

redsock said...

a double play here would not enrage me.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

dp please

redsock said...

it's time to wiggle, lesterzaka

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Is this his imitation of Dice?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Ha, Lesterzaka.

redsock said...

HELL FUCKING YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

balletic

L-girl said...

yooooooooooook !!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Okay, that was crazy. WOW! Why did Hall not take it himself?

L-girl said...

Lesterdini

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I can't tell anything from the MASN replay. What does it show on NESN?

redsock said...

MLBTV stayed with the feed so I can tell you that Juan Samuel was not enamored of the call.

L-girl said...

Obie says it looks like the runner was safe - Yook's foot off the bag. True?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, I saw that too. Thorne saying that they watched it several times and that it was the right call.

redsock said...

i don't think nesn has shown a replay.

redsock said...

lazy ss?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Oops, the yes I saw that too was in response to Allan's comment, not yours Laura.

I've got WEEI audio now. I can't get NESN on the computer because I'm blacked out by being in the MASN area (2+ hours away).

redsock said...

watching it live, i don't see how he could have kept his foot on, but i have no idea, really.

redsock said...

yep, foot on bag. may have come off, but it got back on in time.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Radio saying it was a good call.


YOOUUKKK!!!

L-girl said...

yoooook again !!!

redsock said...

Hey Guthrie:

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE SWEAT!

Patrick said...

Youk shows half dong, but that's enough

L-girl said...

Yes, Obie changed his mind based on a different replay. Earlier he said when you're losing like the O's are, calls never go your way.

tim said...

From the cottage: This place is amaaaaZing. I want to live here. Fuck the rays and mfy with their giant run scoring innings. Hooray for my iPhone autofilling "mfy" also.

Go sox and win this to keep 1/2 game back! Enjoy the game jos, be back this week.

redsock said...

DROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Patrick said...

ON MOTHER FUCKING FIRE!!!!

L-girl said...

Drewble!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

FIRE MAN!!

L-girl said...

Tim, I am soooo jealous!

But glad you're enjoying it.

L-girl said...

Gotta stop threading. Bye for now.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Bye L

Mrs.GotRibe said...

NAVA TIME!!

redsock said...

major league players? we don't need no steenkin' major league players!

redsock said...

alright, so this rally is mostly by the usual lineup, but still...

redsock said...

guthrie threw only 6 more pitches than lester (28 to 22).

Patrick said...

I'll take four runs. Hopefully it's all Lester needs.

tim said...

Aww snap!

MLBtv free game of the day is this!

I'm literally sitting over lake Erie watching baseball. Good old technology.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

That's sweet Tim. Sounds great.

Where are you?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

MASN with a stat: Orioles outscored 63-30 this season in the first inning. Ouch.

redsock said...

Sounds nice, Tim. I assume you are accompanied by an adult beverage.

tim said...

I'm in Wheatley, on. Right beside point pelee, the southern most point in Canada

Patrick said...

Man, that sub 3 ERA looks really good on Lester. Especially in the AL East.

tim said...

Naturally, stephs been on a sangria kick as of late, I like ceasars (yeah, that's right. With clamato) and there's plenty of pelee island (and other) wine to last a week. I like overpacking.

L-girl said...

Say hello to Pelee Island for me. You know why :)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I remember y'all talking about this before. It sounds beautiful. We have friends in Ann Arbor and have crossed the border into Canada near there I guess. Take some pics with your iPhone. I love being on the water.

tim said...

Sorry for the random caps and periods. That's just the way this shit types

tim said...

Lol, sorry l. No bottles of Pinot floating up to the shore here

L-girl said...

That makes me a bit less jealous.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

My after dinner treat? Bud Light and cotton candy, a surprisingly good combination.

I'm not on Lake Erie, but I just looked outside and we have about 50 Canadian Geese in the backyard.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

PAPI!! I think he is headed for another good month of hitting.

Patrick said...

another bogar blunder?

tim said...

Literally right now.

redsock said...

Is Izturis throwing this game?

Slow to make the relay to 1st in the first inning and then not throwing to Lugo to maybe get Flo at 2nd?

(Ah, then he covers his ass with a nice play!)

Patrick said...

That doesn't look like any lake in New Hampshire. That looks more like a sea.

L-girl said...

I think everyone can get over their fear of Baltimore now.

Mrs G, sorry to be nitpicky, but you made a Canadian faux pas. They are "Canada Geese", not "Canadian Geese". I love to see them flying in their Vs with their long necks.

redsock said...

nice porch/deck/whatever!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Wow Tim. That is amazing. It is beautiful. Looks very relaxing. Thanks for posting.

tim said...

ad photo of where I am sitting. Sorry if the links don't work, i'm on my phone which makes me more drunk and beligerant in comment form than usual :)

L-girl said...

Patrick, I always think that. The Great Lakes are SO huge. I think Lake Ontario, which we live near, is huge - then I look at the map and see Lake Superior. Crazy. And Ontario! Even crazier.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Canada Geese? Really? Well, whattyaknow? I'll remember that.

L-girl said...

Wow Tim, you said literally right over, you meant it. Whose place is this, again?

L-girl said...

Yeah, go figure, Canada Geese.

I said I wasn't threading, gotta get back to work...

redsock said...

... and when are we invited out there?

tim said...

Just some rental place I found online. I can send you the link if you want! Haha alright going to get off the phone and enjoy this!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Tim, the links work great. I'm going to have to investigate how to link to an iPhone photo just taken. yfrog, huh?

Laura, the geese are wonderful to look at, especially when they are flying. But, we have way too many that hang around and mess up the backyard. It wasn't too bad when our dog was younger and could shoo them away. But, it is nature and I'm good with it. I like our bald eagle better. There is only one of her.

redsock said...

Sid appears to have settled down nicely, has set down 10 in a row.

L-girl said...

Yes, we are in the geese's way, so their lives become our mess.

Twins had tying run at plate.

redsock said...

Don is squeaking like a mouse!!!

holy shit, he is out of control.

redsock said...

okay, don can barely talk.

redsock said...

i think (i joined in late) remy is talking about the long, "this is what our family is doing" in minute detail emails. he hates them, doesn't care about anyone's life, trashes them ...

redsock said...

ball up - ball gone!

SULTAN OF SWEAT!!!!!!!!!

Ish said...

Sweaty dong!

L-girl said...

yoooook mooooon shot

holy shit! no wonder he sweats so much, he is HOT

Ish said...

Cabin's analysis was good until he needed to use facts, then he got very Eck-like. That's the only way I could describe it.

They talked about the Red Sox a lot.

L-girl said...

I wish I could hear that. I love Remy's misanthropy.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

YOOUUUKK!!

L-girl said...

Cabin's analysis was good until he needed to use facts,

:>)

redsock said...

don loving jerry's general hatred and dismissal of the human race, then they learned that tom caron sends out those kinds of emails --and don totally lost it again.

squeaking entire sentences like "the 1-1 is low and it's 2-1"!

they went to commercial and when they came back, i got the early audio. remy was saying something like "i really can't stand this" and don was laughing and snorting, "there's a lot of things you can't stand lately".

i hear some guffaws, a few seconds of quiet, and then don is right back on the air, totally composed.

redsock said...

hey hey hey it's matt albers

redsock said...

i figured he would be limited, but honestly, if he was on nesn in remy's spot, i would not care. i get enough analysis elsewhere. just watching the game, he'd be 3-4 hours of fun every night. (hell, let don go and have remy and mirror!!)

L-girl said...

God that sounds funny.

I'd love Millar to take Remy's spot when he leaves, but I can't see the three of them. That would be a bit much.

Patrick said...

I feel like our starters need to go 8 innings every time.

Even if Lester makes it through 7, I feel a little disappointed.

L-girl said...

You mean bc you don't trust the pen? Or... ?

Patrick said...

Because I don't trust the pen outside of Pap and Bard.

Amy said...

Hi everyone. Off duty for a while and trying to catch up on email, the news, baseball, etc. Looks like we are winning. Guess we'd better win against Baltimore!

Amy said...

And I don't trust the pen except for Bard.

L-girl said...

And I don't trust the pen except for Bard.

Amy, you don't say. I had no idea.

Amy said...

LOL! Well, you might have forgotten since I have missed a few games in the last week....

redsock said...

lester at 100 thru 7. i assume tito is wary of the pen also and he will send him out again.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Hi Amy. Are you back home?

redsock said...

ramram up

Patrick said...

The shift giveth, but mostly, the shift taketh away.

L-girl said...

Well, you might have forgotten since I have missed a few games in the last week....

Well, I miss games myself, but I remember all the important stuff. :)

Patrick said...

Ramram? Our lead isn't big enough! Tito, what are you thinking!?

redsock said...

OF taking BP these last two nights.

Amy said...

No, we are still in Brooklyn and will be here until next Saturday. Trying to help my daughter through these tough early days. We are also really enjoying the neighborhood when we get a chance to get out!

Patrick said...

Lester with a ERA around 2 lifetime against the Orioles, meaning he would probably have a 1.32 ERA in the NL.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

That's great. Those early days are tough. Such an anxious time and a true feeling of being overwhelmed. I'm glad you're there with her.

Ish said...

Joe Buck even sounded better with Mirror on the broadcast. He didn't waste any opportunity to give Kevin some shit.

Ish said...

First FOX broadcast I enjoyed listening to.

Patrick said...

Wowza! I like it.

redsock said...

i'm surprised samuel didn't get himself tossed a long time ago. this game can't be fun for him to watch.

Amy said...

I guess we are Ram ram proof now.

Patrick said...

Papi is on fire

redsock said...

GOOD TIMES!

Benjamin said...

I love it when we play the Orioles. Kinda helps to forget that sweep earlier in the season when saying that, though.

Patrick said...

I guess we are Ram ram proof now.

I think we are Boof Bonser proof at this point.

redsock said...

remy likes what samuel did in getting tossed:

"at least samuel is showing that *he* has some fire"

oh please ........

redsock said...

no, not boof proof.

Patrick said...

yeah, Boof hasn't recorded an out this year.

redsock said...

hey, cut that out.

Amy said...

So like I said... WE NEED A BULLPEN.

Amy said...

Boy, this is taking forever.

redsock said...

Umps taking a dump?
Getting some food?

Patrick said...

They probably shot gunned some beers and took gravity bong rips.

Amy said...

Where is Joe West? He must hate that replay rule.

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Three.

Dirty>>Clean

Patrick said...

Sweaty water!

meunier said...

More dirty water

Amy said...

Dirty water.

So odd watching on the laptop.

redsock said...

It's Robert Friggin' Manuel, Amy!!! He ain't gonna be on the ALCS roster!

Amy said...

It's Robert Friggin' Manuel, Amy!!! He ain't gonna be on the ALCS roster!

Huh?

redsock said...

I thought you were criticizing our pen tonight for the 2-run dong in the 9th.

L-girl said...

Just got home from work to see the final score. I was wondering how far up I would scroll before I saw this

Amy said...

So like I said... WE NEED A BULLPEN.


Not too far!

Amy said...

Well, I was. I realized that we were not going to lose this game and that putting in someone like Bard would have been ridiculous with an 8 run lead. But nevertheless, it just shows the lack of depth we do have in the pen. To be honest, I had no idea who that pitcher was! (I was watching on the computer with the sound off and was too tired to look up his number.)

I remain worried about the pen. I know I am not alone, but I guess I am just fixated on it. Even if every player on the DL returns, we would still be hampered by an ineffective bullpen.

Just saying... I guess I say it too often, given Laura's comment. I will stop harping on it and find some new theme to vent about.

L-girl said...

Amy, I was only being silly. Harp on whatever you like.

It's true our bullpen has issues. It's also true that a nobody put in to close out an easy win ("Robert Friggin' Manuel") doesn't need to be perfect - we get the win, we save more valuable arms, and we don't have to care about his performance. Those guys play a role, too.

Amy said...

I knew you were just teasing me! But I do feel like a broken record to myself these days. It just breaks my heart when the team puts in a great effort, both the starting pitcher and the position players, and then some jerk from the pen blows the game. OTOH, watching Joba do it is great fun!

I totally understood why Mr Nobody was pitching the 9th. I was just on my usual rant, thinking Tito will leave him in til we are just three runs up and then bring in Papelbomb to blow the game.

I have to get a life!

L-girl said...

I have to get a life!

Or a bullpen.

Amy said...

LOL! Thanks for the laugh.
