G96: Red Sox 8, Mariners 6 (13)

Red Sox  - 003 002 100 000 2 - 8 13  3
Mariners - 010 000 005 000 0 - 6 7 1
Lackey (8-2-1-1-6, 116) pitched 7.2 no-hit innings before Josh Bard lined a clean single to right-center. Seattle's second inning run was unearned.

In the ninth, Manny Delcarmen and Jonathan Papelbon flushed the comfortable lead right down the toilet. MDC faced four batters and got no one out. Bot faced six Mariners, allowing a double and walking two (one intentionally). Boston committed two errors in the inning: Marco Scutaro and Bill Hall (his second E of the game).

Both teams went in order in the 10th and 11th innings. Hideki Okajima escaped a bases loaded/one out jam in the 12th by getting Jose Lopez and Milton Bradley to pop up in the infield on consecutive pitches.

Kevin Youkilis began the top of the 13th with a single. With two outs, Mike Cameron walked and Eric Patterson (who had pinch-hit for Hall in the 11th) lined a double to the gap in left-center. It rolled to the wall, and Boston led 8-6. Ramon Ramirez retired the Mariners in order for the save.

Several hours earlier, the Red Sox had built a nice lead for Lackey on two two-run homers -- by Hall in the third and J.D. Drew in the sixth. David Ortiz also drove in a run in the third and Marco Scutaro bopped a solo dong in the seventh.

Lackey was four outs away from a no-no tonight, but roughly two years ago (July 29, 2008), he went 8.1 innings for the Angels against the Red Sox at Fenway, before Dustin Pedroia broke it up.

Hall, Drew and Scutaro homered to help the Red Sox build a 6-1 lead after seven innings.

The Yankees beat the Royals 10-4, so the win kept Boston 7 GB in the East. The Red Sox moved to 4 GB the idle Rays in the WC.
Example
John Lackey / Ryan Rowland-Smith
Scutaro, SS
McDonald, LF
Ortiz, DH
Youkilis, 1B
Beltre, 3B
Drew, RF
Cameron, CF
Hall, 2B
Cash, C
Jeremy Hermida has been activated and Daniel Nava was optioned to Pawtucket.

Royals/Yankees, 7 PM
Example
July 22:

1939 - Boston Bees catcher Al Lopez drops his second foul pop of the game and an angry fan runs onto the field to punch him. (Unfortunately, I don't know if the fan did punch him.)

1960 - Who is the first player to steal a base in four consecutive decades? That Boston speedster, Ted Williams: 2 in 1939, 14 from 1940-49, 7 from 1950-59, and 1 in 1960. Rickey Henderson will match that in 2000 (he debuted in 1979).

1986 - The Mets beat the Reds 6-3 in 14 innings. For the final five innings, New York manager Davey Johnson shuttles relievers Jesse Orosco and Roger McDowell from the mound to the outfield. The box score lists the final four Mets pitchers as Orosco, McDowell, Orosco, and McDowell. Stuff about that game and pitchers playing the field here and here; McDowell remembers that night.

New Avatar Era is not working out very well.

Suzuki, RF
Figgins, 3B
Gutierrez, CF
Lopez, 2B
Bradley, LF
Smoak, DH
Kotchman, 1B
Bard, C
Wilson, SS

Abraham: "No confirmation yet from the Red Sox, but various reports have the team acquiring infielder Jack Hannahan from Seattle for a player to be named later or cash. Hannahan is a light-hitting first baseman and third baseman. Presumably he will be headed to Pawtucket, He has spent this entire season with Triple-A Tacoma, hitting .228."

Woo-hoo.

redsock said...

"cash" -- not Cash.

Alas.

redsock said...

KCR - 210
MFY - 201

MFY still batting in 3rd; CI hit an ITPHR for the 3rd run.

redsock said...

It seems DeJesus was injured crashing into the wall on CI's ITPer. Replaced by Ankiel.

MacLeodCartoons said...

One shudders to speculate what kind of PTBNL one would instead of Cash...

meunier said...

Am I able to watch the game on Dish since Oakland has an off day today?

Angry Steve said...

"cash" -- not Cash.


damn...

meunier said...

The Oakland stadium sucks, its cramped inside, not all concessions are open and the ones that do back up to the other wall, the multipurpose design fouls up the seating.

Amy said...

WHAT? We sent Nava to Pawtucket? WTF??

I am baffled. Isn't he the one consistent performer we have had since the injury season began?

meunier said...

I hate choad figgins

meunier said...

Yeah I would have sent Hermida to Pawtucket, he was hitting .211!!

redsock said...

d-nava: .286/.381/.451
hermida: .217/.268/.384

Nava's OPS+ 119 - better than Victor and Drew -- no doubt helped by a .396 average on balls in play.

Hermida at 70 - quite a bit worse than Van Every. And that is an amazingly shitty OBP.

But Nava has options, and the Sox presumably do not want to lose Hermida altogether. So there you go ...

redsock said...

If anyone out there is at this Seattle series, I would like a photo of a grilled salmon sandwich.

redsock said...

Hermida has no options. He would have to pass through waivers first.

Nava in last 28 days: .235/.361/.333.

And overall he has 27 K in 105 PA (26%).

Comparison:
Nava: 27 K in 105 PA
Victor: 25 K in 270 PA
Pedroia: 36 K in 342 PA

tim said...

There's the first 2010 mention of the seattle salmon sandwich.

Damn you allan. Damn you so much.

tim said...

Good ol' Rogers. No Bosox in HD because MFY is on.

Nice blown call there by 3b ump, Royals have the tying run on 2nd.

redsock said...

NESN - fuck yeah!!!

and i can get nesn all weekend at work!

tim said...

12 hours until my results!

redsock said...

i have mentioned it before.

nesn on 479 for me.

tim said...

Noticed the game is also on SNET Pacific. All other 3 SNET channels are in HD, but that one's recently been De-hi-deffed for some reason. That's nice.

Also the FSN feed. Fuckers. Guess I'm stuck with that until the chokers finish choking.

JtC about to blow it. I'll enjoy this.

tim said...

Cunt has just loaded the bases.

No word on if fruitbat is coming in, 2 outs in the 8th.

He is sitting in the bullpen. Not even warming.

tim said...

Fucking shit royals.

tim said...

479 - swell recommendation!!!

redsock said...

Psycho Field

And Heidi in white! Oh, this will be a great night.

tim said...

Time for Lackey to pull a Dice-K.

San Francisco Red Sox Fan said...

win please

tim said...

FUCK

redsock said...

i do not appreciate that

meunier said...

papi gets robbed

meunier said...

Hall got PH'd for, for dogging a play yesterday though

redsock said...

for dogging, really?

meunier said...

He didn't dive at a ball he could have easily stopped by doing so

redsock said...

i did not see the papers this morning, was it a big deal?

tim said...

nice try, darnell mcsuzuki.

meunier said...

no I doubt anyone said anything

redsock said...

then how do you know that's why he got hit for?

meunier said...

This is the last game I will be commenting on until August 3rd, I am going back to Boston for a wedding and so on.

tim said...

Attn: Lackey

Whaddya say, John?

(scroll to 1:43)

redsock said...

have fun - i'm away also, after sunday, to august 6.

meunier said...

it looked like that's what happened

tim said...

so are you guys catching a sox-laaa game with zen, or a giants game?

redsock said...

it looked like that's what happened

well, that's no evidence.

tim said...

MFY have blown it open. Stupid royals.

redsock said...

marlins/giants next wednesday afternoon

tim said...

Way to prove they don't need you, Beltre.

tim said...

Just saw this:

Smoak, DH

Washington spelling?

redsock said...

we need beltre to run into a few mfy.

Amy said...

Thanks, Allan, for the Nava numbers. I am still unhappy, but I guess I understand it a little better.

This game is too late for these eyes. I hope the Sox start winning some games soon.

Enjoy the game! GO SOX!

redsock said...

it really comes down to nava can simply be sent down, hermida can't.

redsock said...

also don was talking about tito's comment that nava needed to be able mentally be able to give 100% every single time up, which is interesting. i'm curious what the exact quote was.

meunier said...

cashballa

tim said...

Fucking board game scores on the cashedaballa.

redsock said...

can we just kidnap bard from the other dugout?

meunier said...

slow-mo shows Cash closed the glove before the ball got to him.

redsock said...

lackey still has the no-no!

Amy said...

Don't all players give 100% every time up? I missed Remy's comment(watching on mute for a bit since the family here is sleeping).

tim said...

Apparently the Hannahan trade is complete.

LBJ took BP today, which is a good sign.

And Wake to the pen after Beckett is activated. Good call.

tim said...

Yay!

tim said...

Good old hockey

Or, long islanders.

redsock said...

Hall got PH'd for, for dogging a play yesterday though ...

no I doubt anyone said anything [to the media] ...

it looked like that's what happened


you have a promising future as a boston sportswriter.

redsock said...

HALL ROCKIN!!!!!!!!!!!

meunier said...

HALL LONG BALL!!!!

tim said...

Hall says "dog this"

HALL PASS DONNNNNNNNNG!

Benjamin said...

Waste of a double.

redsock said...

Don't all players give 100% every time up?

the black ones don't.

tim said...

if they win tonight, i've figured out the mojo.

alcohol in my bloodstream.

monday, still probably had some in there from saturday night. that cleared out tuesday and wednesday.

poured a glass of wine before that rally killer, and shazam!

tim said...

I'm assuming L wasn't there to slap you for that one, Allan. :P

redsock said...

alcohol in my bloodstream

if that worked for me, they would not have lost a game since 1980 or so.

redsock said...

she is here.

tim said...

Good! tell her i say hi

FLORIBBY!

meunier said...

Papi will not be denied!

redsock said...

shift this, itchy!

tim said...

I always read baseball scores as complete numbers. For example, its 351 to 100 for boston right now.

This is the shit I think of during commercials when I watch games by myself.

meunier said...

Wilson is a HB

redsock said...

a few feeds give LOB at the end of the R H E, so i think the teams have made about 18 errors.

tim said...

Fuckin' eh John boy!

Benjamin said...

For example, its 351 to 100 for boston right now.

With four wickets remaining in the first innings. Boston may ask Seattle to follow on.

tim said...

those are from the cricket-style MLB games.

all the rules are the same, just no one has gloves.

nick said...

I managed to a) have the game on and b) the computer. At least for a few minutes.

I miss ol' sexy lips.

tim said...

With four wickets remaining in the first innings. Boston may ask Seattle to follow on.

...

if that was a cricket reference, thats funny, following my comment about cricket.

if not then, i have no idea what the hell you just said, sir.

francona wig commercial amused me.

tim said...

there's a flying salmon for ya. no word on the bread.

I don't know what happened but the ph of Hall did seem curious....


and Remy said that Tito said about Nava, thatt he has to come to the park with the same intensity every night, you can take that anyway you want,and Nava is white

redsock said...

identity crisis for nava.



(i trust you know i am kidding)

tim said...

nava-jo?

9casey said...

newsflash: JD Drew is one streaky hitter.....all or nuttin..

9casey said...

redsock said...
identity crisis for nava.




it seems strange to bring back Hermida now, with 2 lefties going for Seattle...

redsock said...

16 to go

tim said...

Don gets soooo excited on any fly to the OF.

Wait a minute, I didn't know Psycho Field was a retractable roofie. I guess I just don't recall seeing any games there with the roof closed. hmm.

9casey said...

redsock said...
16 to go




easy........

redsock said...

i think i'm feelin' it.

redsock said...

15

9casey said...

Imagine the Mariners are paying Milton Bradley 11 million dollars. I don't get the infatuation some team have with him..

meunier said...

Did that just really happen??

redsock said...

good decision of bogar to send hall on his home run trot.

9casey said...

redsock said...
good decision of bogar to send hall on his home run trot.




there were no outs, if there were 2 he definetly would have held him...

tim said...

I'm disappointed in this 3-1 lead. This pitcher has apparently been shit all year (see ERA). 62 pitches through 5 isn't bad.

Fuck, when I was evaluating Dice-K on monday, I thought it was great.

Annoyances.

9casey said...

Jesus, the last time Cash got to second base it was his prom night...

9casey said...

tim said...
I'm disappointed in this 3-1 lead.



Beggars cant be choosers

Ish said...

So, uh, Smoak got smoked...?

*crickets*

tim said...

The lead part is great.

But when I saw his ERA I was expecting a 20 run first bonanza type of deal, one of those innings that makes jack mckeon cry.

Angry Steve said...

Lackey is pitching reeeeeeeally well tonight...

tim said...

dozen left.

redsock said...

12 to go

tim said...

paw update from PA:

Mike Lowell was 1 for 5 as the DH for the PawSox. His single in the 10th helped move Daniel Nava to third and Lars Anderson had a walk-off single for a 5-4 win. Nava was 2 for 3 with a three-run homer in his first game back with Pawtucket.

Guess lowell is doing a rehab.

huh.

Benjamin said...

if not then, i have no idea what the hell you just said, sir.

It was.

tim said...

Beltre would've caught that for seattle.

tim said...

That ump looks hilarious. What were they, sold out of the S, M, L, XL, XXL umpiring jackets?

redsock said...

79 for lackey thru 5

tim said...

ON
FUCKING
FIRE
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

ON FIRE

meunier said...

EN FUEGO!

tim said...

79 for lackey thru 5

fuck 'em.

SoSock said...

The Fire is back

tim said...

Just went through the sorry excuse of a gamethread on extra bases - the thing PA keeps saying is so great.

I don't think I've read that many intellectually devoid comments in a LONG time.

redsock said...

i think what he says is great is that the number of comments is high.

redsock said...

11

tim said...

He also has a habit of lying about the number of comments too. Unless he just totals them for all the posts throughout the day or something. But one game he said there was like 500, and I looked below and the "game updates" thread had like 70.

40 of which were probably "I want to bang heidi" like tonight.

Few yankee trolls, etc.

redsock said...

10

tim said...

I love how nesn attempts to be subtle when the pitcher has not allowed a hit.

Obvious zoom in on the scoreboard.

Don getting all excited and announcing lackey coming back out, and the camera zooming in on him after the inning ends, as opposed to the red sox player who made the final out.

So amusing.

redsock said...

9

tim said...

sweet.

one more time thru the order.

Angry Steve said...

oh my goodness!!!!

meunier said...

Pitch count is too high..

redsock said...

don observes the tradition. giving the tally of baserunners -- "and that's been it".

redsock said...

butterflies for that inning....

redsock said...

92 thru 6. he needs a 7-pitch frame.

tim said...

was planning on watching this in bed, as usual for these games.

nope. big tv all the way.

tim said...

so subtle, don.

redsock said...

pitch count "could be an issue in all this"

tim said...

he's given up one run.

BUT NOTHING IN THAT SECOND COLUMN!!!!!

tim said...

SCUUUUUUUUUUUTARDONG!

Benjamin said...

BUT NOTHING IN THAT SECOND COLUMN!!!!!

Errors?

redsock said...

SCUDONGO!

meunier said...

Scutaro quadrangular

tim said...

Please flo. Stop sucking post-derby.

redsock said...

tim: lackey says "don't let your BAL get too low"

...

WHEELZ!

tim said...

the last thing i need is encouragement to drink. especially with a vision test at 8:30 am.

but if i gotta take one for the team, so be it.

meunier said...

Flo has also faced a boatload of leftys since the derby

tim said...

there he goes again about the second column.

redsock said...

8.

(lackey pc high this year is 124)

redsock said...

7.

tim said...

he's got at least 30 left. for 7 outs, sure.

Benjamin said...

But they scored a run in the second column. We didn't, though. Maybe that's it?

tim said...

6.

redsock said...

6 to go.

(11 pitch inning, now at 103)

tim said...

He's referring to the R-H-E columns.

meunier said...

It really don't get no bigger man..

Angry Steve said...

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

redsock said...

a few hours ago, i was going to post this game hasn't even started yet and lackey is already pissing me off.

redsock said...

don can't refer to it as the h*t column, so he is stuck.

Angry Steve said...

ESPN.com jinxed it... front page news now

redsock said...

well, espn did not ruin the day for braden or ubaldo or edwin jackson, so i am not worried.

tim said...

i'm nervous watching this, and he's not even pitching right now.

i couldn't imagine being in that situation.

Benjamin said...

Did they spoil Galarraga's day?

redsock said...

and halladay. hard to keep track of them all.

redsock said...

does joyce know html?

Benjamin said...

It wouldn't surprise me. There's bound to be something he knows.

tim said...

Joyce knows html.

He just can't tell the difference between http and https

meunier said...

Everyone has a hit except Microwave.

tim said...

13 minute wait.

down the hatch!

redsock said...

13 minute wait -- so far for lackey

Benjamin said...

At the rate this half inning is going, Lackey's going to need to throw a side session.

redsock said...

he didnt tag him????????

hahahahahaaaa

tim said...

beltre would've tagged him.

Benjamin said...

Kinda looked like he was out of the basepaths if nothing else.

tim said...

bases loaded, 1 out, cash at the plate?

bottom of the inning coming right up!

redsock said...

bases loaded, 1 out, cash at the plate?
bottom of the inning coming right up!


as sure as (cash) money in the bank

redsock said...

5

tim said...

5

redsock said...

4

redsock said...

that seemed hard hit

Benjamin said...

Fucker.

tim said...

fuck.

balls.

redsock said...

fuckin' lackey.

tim said...

should've went with the kidnapping plan

redsock said...

bard, mdc up

tim said...

As I said earlier, time for Lackey to pull a Dice-K.

Well, he's accomplished that.

As far I as I remember, Dice has been on a decent roll since his near no-no in Philly. So hopefully this is the start of something good.

Michael Holloway said...

Euphemisms so far:

"down the hatch"
"it" (as in 'ESPN.com jinxed it...')
"NOTHING IN THAT SECOND COLUMN!"
"this" (as in c'ould be an issue in all this')
"observes the tradition"
"the pitcher has not allowed a hit" (not quite sure about that one...)

Dam! Seattle ruined the no-hitter

:(

redsock said...

"down the hatch" was a don orsillo drinking game reaction, i believe.

redsock said...

looked like mdc coming in.

tim said...

redsock said...
lackey still has the no-no!

Thu Jul 22, 10:39:00 PM


:>)

redsock said...

delayed jinx by me?

tim said...

obviously. you've cursed red sox no-nos for the next, oh... 86 years.

tim said...

battery dead. plugging in and shutting down, night.

redsock said...

night.

redsock said...

jesus mdc, wtf?

Benjamin said...

Save situation for Bot now, I guess.

meunier said...

Now its a save situation..

redsock said...

how about an out or 3, asshole?

redsock said...

last batter for manny?

redsock said...

bot probably paid mdc to get the game to a save situation.

now the walk and this other shit, i don't know ...

SoSock said...

Single, HR, 4-pitch walk.

Our pen is a damn adventure ride

redsock said...

where the fuck was lopez? they almost could have got a FC

meunier said...

Scutaro, come on!

redsock said...

the brave

the battling

...

redsock said...

lackey is busy taking a dump in mdc's locker.

redsock said...

someone wake amy up!

redsock said...

smoak smote.

redsock said...

smoak smote.

redsock said...

krotch rocket. geez.
