G83: Rays 6, Red Sox 5

Red Sox - 004 100 000 - 5 10  0
Rays - 100 022 10x - 6 10 0
Boston battered Garza (3-7-4-2-1, 84) in the third after he had retired the first two batters. Eric Patterson homered -- he would also hit a dong in the fourth -- and then there was a walk, double, and three singles. The Red Sox led 5-1.

Dice (5-8-5-4-4, 112) gave the lead away, however, as he was unable to retire any of the first four batters in the sixth. Ramon Ramirez allowed two singles to the start the seventh, and a sacrifice fly scored the go-ahead run.

In addition to his two homers, Patterson doubled in the seventh. David Ortiz walked three times and singled.
Example
Daisuke Matsuzaka / Matt Garza
Scutaro, SS
Patterson, LF
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Drew, RF
Hall, 2B
Cameron, CF
Cash, C
These guys faced each other last Wednesday, and their lines were very similar: Garza (7-6-3-2-5, 110); Dice (6-4-3-4-7, 111). The Rays teed off on Manny Delcarmen in the eighth and won 9-4.

Out west:
Yankees/A's, 10 PM
Help! I would like a permanent description/subtitle thing. Any old or new ideas that are funny, straight-forward, or just plain neato?
Example
July 5: The New York Giants become the first team to use a public address system (1929), Cleveland's Larry Doby is the first black player in American League history (1947), and the A's and Angels set a record for the most runs scored in the first inning (Oakland 13-3) (1996).

Jays off = we have NESN!

redsock said...

is this thing on?

johngoldfine said...

Seems on to me, but I've been watering the garden, so what do I know.

L-girl said...

Of course it's on.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I've got TB network. I'll probably be setting up the computer soon.

Flipping through the channels, we found a Tina Turner concert from Holland filmed in 2009. Wow, it was incredible. At age 70, she still has it. Great singing, dancing, and her legs still look pretty damn good. Amazingly sexy dancers on tour with her, well choreographed by Toni Basil.

We also went to see Toy Story 3. Very good movie. Bring the tissues, though.

Stinky double play.

johngoldfine said...

I agree, Mrs GR--TS3 quite the weepie, very enjoyable because or despite....

L-girl said...

What a catch. Geez.

redsock said...

PATTERDONG!!!!!

L-girl said...

And the guy doesn't even have a nickname!!!

Benjamin said...

That's one way to win a battle with a pitcher.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Nice catch.

PATTERSON!!!

My husband: I'm surprised Crawford didn't sprint over there and catch it (in his sarcastic voice).

redsock said...

patterson: "spit on this"

Mrs.GotRibe said...

The movie was very relevant to me. My son was two when the first movie came out and he still has his Buzz Lightyear. He is 17 and headed to college next year. Very touching.

L-girl said...

I have never seen any of the Toy Story movies.

L-girl said...

SAFE!! Get that hand in there, Wheels.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Sending Papi? Way to go.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Catcher was out of position. I think he has him if he is at the plate instead of in front of it.

L-girl said...

We looove the 2-out rally.

Edward Lee said...

Catcher was out of position. I think he has him if he is at the plate instead of in front of it.

John Jaso would also be dead if he'd tried to block the plate there.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Good story lines about toys and their relationships with their owners. I think TS3 is the best of the bunch.

redsock said...

only angle nesn showed was no help in seeing where he was.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

John Jaso would also be dead if he'd tried to block the plate there.

Good point there. I guess your life is worth more than a run.

L-girl said...

Hallelujah!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Keep it going!!! You gotta love 4 run innings.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

With all this excitement, I forgot that Crawford looked like he got hurt on that diving catch. I want to monitor that situation.

redsock said...

fractured some ribs, perhaps?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Probably not, where was Beltre?

redsock said...

shaking his wrist on the replay?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well, he looked okay in his AB.

Patrick said...

What happened to the Daisuke that pitched to contact? I thought he was with us earlier this year.

L-girl said...

"Dice K's out of the jam"

DRINK!

Patrick said...

"Dice K's out of the jam"

DRINK!


ughh. Even if that's all we drink on, it's a little too much for a Monday.

Patrick said...

Wow, Cash, at least take a pitch.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

It certainly is nice to have the spitter out of the game (for numerous reasons).

Patrick said...

Is Patterson batting in the 2 spot? Do we just not care about lineup order at all anymore?

redsock said...

I was moaning to myself about that last inning, thinking about his .260-ish OBP. Then he donged!

redsock said...

PATTERSON SAYS FU JOS!!!!

L-girl said...

PATTERDONG PART 2 !!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Then he donged!
Rally killer.

Rally killer x 2!!!!!

Patrick said...

Hah, I was just dissing him too.

L-girl said...

Don totally trooped me on that

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I guarantee anyone listening on the radio just got Truped.

redsock said...

you ain't no patterson, there, papi.

Patrick said...

I'm listening to the radio, and OB did give me partial wood there for a second.

He's pretty good about being cautiously optimistic.

tim said...

Who the fuck is Patterson and why is he so goddamn dongtacular?

L-girl said...

Dongtacular! Excellent word.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I guess he's not hurt, huh?

redsock said...

not enough, no.

L-girl said...

Hey Tim, are you on the thread?

Patrick said...

Our bullpen is way to thin to give these guys any more runs.

redsock said...

this nickle and dime shit is annoying.

3rd out pls

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well that sucks.

Patrick said...

Oooo, let's see how he wriggles out of this one.

redsock said...

was he out? seems very hard to say with nesn's weak replays.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I guess that's what happens when he pitches to contact.

BTW, I think he was safe at the plate.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

THROW STRIKES!!!!

tim said...

Back now, had to take the pooch out.

tim said...

He's all "you fuckers WILL know my name by the end of the night!"

redsock said...

sultan time.

tim said...

They want to pitch to yook? OK.

L-girl said...

So everyone can see their own comment but no one else's?

redsock said...

Ghost town tonight. Going to watch the rest of this sans computer.

redsock said...

Amy said...

Hmm, thread stopped an hour ago. Guess there is a power outage in TO.

tim said...

Back for more...what happened to my comments from before?

Just noticed that each of the 6 rays pitchers tonight has at least 1 strikeout. Annoying.

redsock said...

redsock said...

it's up to the big man.

redsock said...

redsock said...

No power outage in Mississauga. Blogger was just being weird, not posting comments.

L-girl said...

Actually, a power outage in TO wouldn't have stopped the thread. Moderation was off.

tim said...

So now all the comments are here?

Stupid blogger, really has to lay off the booze.

L-girl said...

I don't know whether all the comments appeared or not. I think not.

Philip said...

Tito blew that game. Batting Patterson 2nd? PRing Cameron instead of PHing? Oh, and let's not forget the pure stupidity of not using a decent reliever in 7th, 8th. GOD FORBID we use our closer in non-save situation.
