G95: Athletics 6, Red Sox 4

Red Sox   - 100 012 000 - 4  8  2
Athletics - 012 030 00x - 6 12 0
Example
Clay Buchholz / Gio Gonzalez
McDonald, LF
Lowrie, SS
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Drew, RF
Cameron, CF
Hall, 2B
Brown, C
Buchholz returns to the rotation, making his first start since straining his left hamstring running the bases on June 26 in San Francisco. In his last nine starts, dating back to May 14, he has a 1.59 ERA.

The Red Sox also activated Jed Lowrie (and designated Ryan Shealy for assignment and sent Dustin Richardson to Pawtucket). Lowrie went 11-for-30 (.367) in 10 games with Lowell (A) and Pawtucket (AAA). Of the 11 hits, four were doubles and one was a home run. Lowrie also walked six times.

Peter Gammons says the Red Sox recently offered Lowrie to the Rockies for catcher Chris Iannetta -- and were turned down.

Victor Martinez says "the last couple days have been really a big improvement". He has been wearing a glove and playing catch and is now swinging a bat from the right side. There is a chance he could return for the Angels series next week.

Gustavo Molina cleared waivers and is back in Pawtucket.

This afternoon:
Rays/Orioles, 12:30 PM
Angles/Yankees, 1 PM
Example
July 21:

1959 - The Red Sox become the last team to integrate. Elijah "Pumpsie" Green pinch runs in the eighth inning and plays shortstop. (This is 2½ years after Jackie Robinson has played his last game.)

1988 - Jim Rice is suspended for three games for shoving manager Joe Morgan after Morgan replaced him with pinch-hitter Spike Owen the day before. (20 years later, Rice will forget his own history.)

Jerry Remy and NESN have agreed to a multi-year contract extension. Remy will broadcast his 3,000th game on Sunday.

Jeremy Hermida sounds ready to play tomorrow in Seattle. Daniel Nava will likely go back to Pawtucket.

Angry Steve said...

Whooooohhhhhh we threw someone out?!?!

redsock said...

sorry guys, just because your pitcher throws 100 doesn't mean everything he throws is a strike.

redsock said...

2 walks, tying runs on, yook up.

redsock said...

annoying.

Angry Steve said...

rrrrggghhhhhh... c'mon...

redsock said...

redsock said...

YEAH! cameron guns down ococ at the plate. DP!

redsock said...

these oakland tv guys are just like the rays guys. any close play involving their runner getting tagged out, they always say "i think he got his hand in there".

they did it on davis in the 2nd, crisp in the 6th, and crisp again here in the 8th.

they don't whine nearly as much, though

SoSock said...

Well, the road trip started off innocently enough, but seems to be showing an ugly side right now.

Wins, plz!

tim said...

Just looked at the schedule. Man there is a lot of baseball left!

Bostons last 3 series are mfy/cws/mfy. Mfy has the jays in there. And guess who fkr gets? Mariners, orioles, royals.

Lock it up now, bosox.
