G125: Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 0

Blue Jays - 000 000 000 - 0  6  0
Red Sox - 000 030 02x - 5 7 0
Buchholz (6-5-0-3-7, 97) extended his scoreless inning streak to a career-best 20, though he had to wiggle out of a few jams against the Jays. Toronto left two men on base in the first, second, and sixth innings.

Buchholz lowered his AL-leading ERA to 2.26. He has not allowed an earned run in 23.2 innings.

Marcum (7-4-3-0-6, 91) had set down the first 12 Boston batters before David Ortiz opened the fifth with a triple -- to left-center! Adrian Beltre doubled and it was 1-0. After two were outs, Bill Hall launched a rocket over everything in left. In the seventh, Ryan Kalish doubled and Marco Scutaro walked. They both scored as Victor Martinez and Ortiz had RBI singles.

After Daniel Bard pitched the seventh, Felix Doubront took the final two innings, allowing only two baserunners (a one-out single in the eighth and a HBP with two outs in the ninth).

The Yankees beat the Mariners 10-0 and the Rays beat the A's 3-2. New York holds its one-game lead over Tampa Bay, with Boston 6.5 GB. The Red Sox are 5.5 GB the Rays in the wild card race.
Example
5:04 PM: Buchholz still out there in the third. 49 pitches before the delay, 51 through 3. (Marcum still in, too.)

4:05 PM: The tarp is back on the infield, with Blue Jays batting in the top of the third, two outs, a runner on first, and a 1-1 count on Adam Lind.

3:19 PM: First pitch! The start of the game was delayed 1:44 by rain.
Example
Shaun Marcum / Clay Buchholz
Scutaro, SS
Drew, RF
Martinez, C
Ortiz, DH
Beltre, 3B
Lowell, 1B
Lowrie, 2B
Hall, LF
Kalish, CF
Buchholz has allowed only five earned runs over his last five starts (37.1 innings, 1.21 ERA). ... Weather: "periods of light to moderate rain showers throughout the day".

AL East:
Mariners/Yankees, 1 PM
Rays/A's, 4 PM
Example
August 22:

1886 - Louisville's Chicken Wolf hits a game-winning home run as a stray dog bites at Red Stockings center fielder Abner Powell's pant leg, causing him to miss the ball.

1933 - Cubs president William Veeck suggests a midsummer series of inter-league games.

1946 - MLB clubs approve a 168-game schedule, but change their minds on September 16.

1976 - I see my first game at Fenway Park (Oakland wins 7-6 in 11).

2007 - The Rangers beat the Orioles 30-3, setting an AL record for runs. No major league team had scored 30 runs since the 1897 Colts. Wes Littleton pitches the last three innings and gets a save.

PA, yesterday on Twitter:

"Fenway needs trap doors with sharks below for sections who try and start the wave in the 11th inning of a 4-4 game. Hungry sharks"

let's go all fucking shark week on these shithawks today!

redsock said...

Nice idea!

PA, 12:57 PM: "The rain has returned and the tarp is down. The game will not start on time."

redsock said...

tarp still on at 1:30

redsock said...

SEA - 000 0
MFY - 000

tim said...

Accuweather for Boston does not look promising.

tim said...

Also, happy birthday to Yaz today!

redsock said...

Kearns dong. NY 1-0.

tim said...

Fuck, kearns dong.

1-0 MFY, ridiculous music blaring at le toilette.

redsock said...

Anyone else besides Luke French and Charlie English (1932-37) on the All-Language Team?

redsock said...

mariners have a guy thrown out at the plate, with dumbo holding the ball in his right hand and tagging the runner with his empty glove.

redsock said...

obviously, that is not an out. should be 1-1.

tim said...

Making pizza, I missed the play but heard the Ms announcers bitching about it.

Reeeeeally hoping for NESN this week and not these chumps.

Anyway how was the clean up today?

redsock said...

Cano GS. NY 5-0.

L did most of the clean-up. She likes having a dishwasher.

redsock said...

heavy rain at the toilet.

redsock said...

Lowrie joins the Fuck Yeah gif brigade!

tim said...

Dishwasher is key, especially for parties.

Winston apologizes for the floor, he was just trying to tell you that the red sox won.

redsock said...

and with some sort of song ....

tim said...

delay in NY - yaay!

so what game are they going to go to now?

westcoastsox said...

Heidi Watney, NESN, on Twitter, 10 minutes ago: "Still in a rain delay here at Fenway. They are going to try and play at some point."

tim said...

oooo, battle of playoff contenders - thanx rogers!

i just looove watching the orioles.

redsock said...

Also check out Victor rubbing Beltre's head and running away with Beltre chasing him out of the frame!

westcoastsox said...

First pitch at 3:15 ET

SoSock said...

LOVE the Lowrie song/gif

That is freaking hilarious. The song sounds like it should have come from Team America or something :)

SoSock said...

3:15. If I hurry, I can finish mowing.....
Later

Mrs.GotRibe said...

That is hilarious! You can see Beltre screaming as Victor is rubbing his head.

tim said...

Here we go! Martinez/Tabler - woooooooo hooooooo!

Time to crack open a beer to deal with this shit.

meunier said...

I liked this rain delay, I didn't miss the game while at breakfast!

tim said...

Buck reiterating the stats they just mentioned about HH 2 minutes ago. ERA, batting avg, etc.

L-girl said...

I'm watching but I'm too tired to thread. So nice to be home watching the game instead of at work!

tim said...

Jays TV showing HH's stats for the last 5 starts - headline:
"Pass the butter"

?????

L-girl said...

All-language team! Gotta think on that one.

redsock said...

jays strand a pair

redsock said...

i saw that too. we have sox radio on, so who the hell knows what that was?

tim said...

They also said that he pitched well against teams as high caliber as "the blue jays, the yankees, and the angels"

really don't think the BJs belong in that category.

i need to mute this.

L-girl said...

teams as high caliber as "the blue jays, the yankees, and the angels"

Ha ha ha, what a riot.

Mute for sure. We have Sox radio on the netbook.

tim said...

outside corner? sure didn't look like it.

tim said...

nooooo! i have a good system going, because i get WEEI on my iphone, which i can plug into the speakers under the TV.

but the iphone mlb audio isn't working right now.

redsock said...

Add to All-Language Team: Dutch Leonard

tim said...

oh, works now.

unfortunately victor just fouled one off in this delayed weei feed.

oh well.

L-girl said...

I found Greek George, but that's a nickname.

And while I was looking, I found a great one for the food team: Pretzels Getzien.

redsock said...

would be great if tomorrow's game is rained out, since i'm missing it.

L-girl said...

Dutch was his real name? Great find!

tim said...

there's the fourth time i've heard opponent BA vs. HH from buck today.

redsock said...

OB says molina lines a single to right, then says it was not hit very hard. oy. he was right the second time, just a poky little grounder.

pls be honest, dave.

L-girl said...

Esteban German! And 2 other players named German listed in B-Ref.

redsock said...

jays strand another pair

Mrs.GotRibe said...

There are lots of Germans

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Oops sorry L. I didn't see your post.

tim said...

Douglas Swiss?

L-girl said...

We thought of Swiss, but it's not a language, is it? It's a nationality, but Swiss people speak either German or French.

L-girl said...

Great minds think alike, as they say

tim said...

I don't know, I'm culturally stupid like that.

What language is yodeling considered then?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Charlie Malay (1905) and Joe Malay (1933-1935)

Malay is the official language of Brunai.

tim said...

I wonder if the all-language team hits a lot of fouls.

redsock said...

Stengelese?

L-girl said...

Malay, nice one!!! Impressive.

Yodeling :)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Pretzel, I like it.

In looking up official languages, I found this. The official language of Luxermbourg?


Luxermbourgish

Go figure!

L-girl said...

Luxemburg has its own language?! "I did not know that."

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Charles Russian was a minor leaguer.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Re Luxembourg

Maybe not an official language. It has administrative languages of:

Luxermbourgish (national) French
German

What are administrative languages?

L-girl said...

Russian, very good. You're on a roll!

Administrative language? No idear. Gonna look it up.

L-girl said...

Castig just gave me one for my tradesmen team, Red Barber! Telling a well-known story about Vin Scully.

Oh shit, Victor's thumb.

redsock said...

victor hit on left hand by bat swing. jesus.

good thing kevin cash is making rehab starts!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well, why not send V-Mart back to the DL? That seems to be the MO

Ish said...

First name I had thought of at the beginning of the All-Language team was Esteban German. Fail.

Big rains falling now.

redsock said...

raining

L-girl said...

Administrative language:

Wiki redirects to Official language:

An official language is a language that is given a special legal status in a particular country, state, or other jurisdiction. Typically a nation's official language will be the one used in that nation's courts, parliament and administration.[1] However, official status can also be used to give a language (often indigenous) a legal status, even if that language is not widely spoken. For example, in New Zealand the Māori language has official status under the Māori Language Act even though it is spoken by less than five percent of the New Zealand population.[2] Non-national or supra-national organizations such as the United Nations and the European Union may also have official languages.

Still no idea what Luxemburgish is.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

There are a couple of guys nicknamed The Mad Russian.

And, of course, The Greek Goddess of Walks.

But I don't know the rules for the All whatever teams, do nicknames count?

redsock said...

You mean The Mad Hungarian?

No nicknames.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Looking at it again, I think it is
Luxermbourgish French.

It is listed as:
Luxermbourgish (national) French

redsock said...

tarp back out at 4:05.

tim said...

Staats and Kennedy! The great announcing brigade continues!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Well thanks L, that clears it up!!

Rain delay, time to do some laundry.

And maybe unpack a box or two. I've still got stuff boxed up from the upstairs renovation.

SoSock said...

Well, why not send V-Mart back to the DL? That seems to be the MO

Yeah, and Dusty Brown can come in and since he hasn't warmed up properly, he would hit HH in the ankle with a throwback, sending him to the DL, and on his way off the field HH would step on Lowell's foot, driving his spike through a toe and sending him to the DL.

That would fit right in with this season so far

redsock said...

Greek Goddess?

tim said...

hopefully the delay will break up marcum's perfect game.

L-girl said...

Nicknames do count (according to me, and I make the rules ;) ) for some "all" teams - all animals (Goose Gossage, Catfish Hunter), for example.

But Allan made up this one, so he makes the rules.

L-girl said...

But the nicknames have to be what the player was known by, like Babe Ruth or Goose Gossage - something known enough to be listed on B-Ref.

Greek Goddess - whoever that is! - doesn't count. :)

redsock said...

I forgot today's DL News:

Carlos Delgado, sore left hip and lower back.

Ish said...

Funny how rain delays are always treated as if they're the first ones. Analysis is needed to explain the phenomenon of the rain delay.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

lol...Greed goddess? What kind of unspoken message am I sending there?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I read Allan's post questioning Greek Goddess and couldn't figure out what he was questioning. I know he read Moneyball, I know he knows Youk's nickname. I had to look at it for a few seconds before it hit me

redsock said...

Tim: Paw at Buffalo this weekend. 2nd game of a DH yesterday was rained out, so they are playing two today. Was trying to find out who is starting tomorrow.

ProJo: "Okajima said he will see game action again on Monday night against the Bisons, and had no time frame for a return to Boston."

L-girl said...

Must be because Yook is so soft and girly!

SoSock said...

After this season I'm not sure anyone in our pen except Bard should have "a timeframe for a return to Boston"

(That was for you, Amy) ;>

redsock said...

5:05 re-start?

redsock said...

SEA - 000 000 000 - 0 6 3
MFY - 000 143 11x - 10 10 1

FKR - 001
OAK - 000

meunier said...

If this game resumes won't it be Wakefield/Tallet on the mound?

redsock said...

HALL!

HH still out there.

redsock said...

perfect game for marcum!!! 20 outs to go!!!

Benjamin said...

Jinx harder, Allan.

redsock said...

SHAUN MARCUM IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!!!!
SHAUN MARCUM IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!!!!
SHAUN MARCUM IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!!!!
SHAUN MARCUM IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!!!!
SHAUN MARCUM IS PITCHING A PERFECT GAME!!!!

L-girl said...

HITS SVP

L-girl said...

Thank you!

redsock said...

PAPI TRIPLE!!!!!!!!
TO LCF!!!!!!!!!!!

L-girl said...

Holy cow a Big Papi triple!!!!

meunier said...

Papi Triple!

L-girl said...

All right, here we go!

redsock said...

1-0!

Benjamin said...

Runs are good.

SoSock said...

Jinx worked!

Btw - that HAS too be one of very few triples in Papi's career

redsock said...

triple #15

L-girl said...

15 career triples, 1 per year for the last 3 years.

redsock said...

he had 3 in 2004.

SoSock said...

OK, one of 14 to be exact. Wait, I guess it's 15 now.

Shucks, I did it myself....yuck yuck

Benjamin said...

FKR 1 - OAK 1 (6th)

L-girl said...

Hallelujah!!!!

meunier said...

THERE WE GO!

redsock said...

KINGDOM HALL!!!!!!!!!

Hall now 3 for 4 vs Marcum, with 3 dongs!

redsock said...

2B
3B
HR

in this inning. we need a single.

SoSock said...

Hall Pass!

I like this....

L-girl said...

Hall Pass, I like it :)

redsock said...

doubront up

redsock said...

jays strand a pair (yet again)

SoSock said...

mmmmm.....Dozed off a bit after the hall homer, looks like Clay did a nice job of recuping after 2 hits to start their half-inning

redsock said...

i think castig said bard is coming in

SoSock said...

Running on E here - about 2 1/2 hours of sleep, and that was on a tent floor with no pad because some idiot forgot to take it to the camp-out with him.
Uh, I guess that was me :(

redsock said...

20 pitches for bard in the 7th.
atchison was up

tim said...

Just had a great 1.5 hour rain nap.

Nice to wake up to a lead. Not so nice to wake up to the news about Okajima pitching tmrw in Buffalo. Like I said, we should head to the OF seats for that, try to get some HR balls.

L-girl said...

Naps, what a concept. Wish I could do that.

redsock said...

bot warming for the 9th

redsock said...

FKR win 3-2

SoSock said...

Napping - notsomething I get to do often but I'm definitely in and out of nap zone today. As mentioned earlier - VERY little sleep last night. Much like our hosts, I would presume. I was at a local version of wmtc part, a bbq bash at a campground right at the foot of Pilot Mountain. Beautiful. And I actually grew a pair and played with some of my buddies in the band at the late night acoustic jam around the fire. (Guitar, that is) In front of total strangers even. They've been after me to do more than just jam with them in the practice garage....

Benjamin said...

FKR 3 - OAK 2. Useless.

SoSock said...

Useless A's - damn

tim said...

cleanup on aisle 2!

SoSock said...

V-Mart!

redsock said...

bot sits down? no save chance, i guess. atchison maybe, he has been up a few times

tim said...

amy would've liked that shot of pap on rogers, pickin his nose. not at all getting into this game.

tim said...

i think he pitched 1 or 2 yesterday, no?

tim said...

good times flo!!!

SoSock said...

I see "run(s)"!!

SoSock said...

Oppi-Papi strikes again!

Benjamin said...

i think he pitched 1 or 2 yesterday, no?

2.1 IP on Friday.

redsock said...

two nights ago, rogers showed overbay at the dugout railing, blowing snot out of one nostril. it was like a hose! totally disgusting.

tim said...

classy gent. that ooooooooverbay fellow.

redsock said...

felix for 2!

tito wisely saving the pen to back up lackey tomorrow.

L-girl said...

Remind me, why do you all want the Rays to lose? I want them to win. I'd much rather see them win the division than NYY.

redsock said...

rays need to lose for us to get the wild card.

Benjamin said...

It's not an either/or. We want them both to lose.

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

Benjamin said...

Water.

L-girl said...

Don't drink the water!

tim said...

That shit is DIRTY!!!!!

redsock said...

of course, if nyy falls off and starts losing like crazy, then the rays can be in first and we can chase the mfy for the wc. either way. but i think the rays slumping is more likely than the yankees doing so.

SoSock said...

Dirty!

Dirty as the water in the makeshift pool at the bottom of the 60 ft. slip and slide at the cookout yesterday!

And let me tell ya, as someone who helped clean up this morning, that was some dirty-ass water!

SoSock said...

i think the rays slumping is more likely than the yankees doing so.


Pains me to say so, but that's probably true.

Damn I hate the Yankees

Benjamin said...

And since rooting for either the MFYs or FKRs has no bearing on the standings, why sacrifice your dignity?

tim said...

oh fuck you, red sox.

i'm sick of getting shit ads from them emailed to me, so the bottom of the one they just sent, it sez:

"You received this message because you registered to receive commercial e-mail messages from redsox.com.

If you no longer wish to receive commercial e-mail messages from redsox.com, please unsubscribe"

So I click unsubscribe, because I no longer want to receive commercial email messages, and it takes me to a page to unsubscribe me from the red sox NEWSLETTER. i enjoyed the newsletter, just not the bombardment of spam email from them. guess i have to put up with that shit in order to get the newsletter. oh well, fuck em. it didnt really provide any useful info.
****

a-rod DLed. cool.

redsock said...

BBQ sounds nice, by the way.


(Our floor was filthy today. Hours of rain and 30 people and 7 dogs going in and out ....)

redsock said...

I'd much rather see them win the division than NYY.

Well, yes.

tim said...

yeah, sounds like a hoot, sosock.
