G128: Mariners 4, Red Sox 2

Mariners - 102 001 000 - 4  9  2
Red Sox - 001 001 000 - 2 5 1
Hernandez (7.1-4-2-1-9, 122) was too much for the Sox bats and Wakefield (5.2-8-4-0-2, 91).

Boston got a third-inning run on Ryan Kalsih's double, an infield error, and wild pitch. J.D. Drew homered in the sixth.

The Sox had a shot at tying the game in the eighth. Pinch-hitter Ball Hall doubled and Drew walked with one out. Brandon League relieved Felix -- and got Victor Martinez on a grounder to first and David Ortiz on a line drive to left. Mike Lowell singled to start the bottom of the ninth, but Daniel Nava hit into a double play and Jed Lowrie flew out.

The Rays lost to the Angels 12-3 and the Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 6-3. Tampa Bay and New York remain tied for first in the East, with Boston 5.5 GB. ... The Red Sox are off on Thursday before starting a weekend series in Tampa Bay.
Example
Felix Hernandez / Jon Lester Tim Wakefield
Scutaro, SS
Drew, RF
Martinez, 1B
Ortiz, DH
Beltre, 3B
Nava, LF
Lowrie, 2B
Kalish, CF
Cash, C
This afternoon's win was Boston's fourth in a row. The Red Sox had not won four consecutive games since winning six straight in mid-June (June 15-20).

In 14 starts since June 13, Hernandez has a 1.54 ERA -- and only a 6-5 record. Two starts ago, on August 15 at Cleveland, he allowed six runs, all unearned. (Which may not be entirely fair. The error came with two outs and no one on; after it, Felix allowed a single, single, double, intentional walk, and a grand slam home run.)

redsock said...

Jays put Downs on trade waivers today.

tim said...

alright lester, time to not suck like last time.

also, i just realized that i lied to the border on our buffalo escapade - i thought the last time i crossed over was for that hockey game in may - totally forgot about the dead concert i went to in july! guess he didn't care.

tim said...

Cash, C

Sometimes I completely understand Theo. Other times, I'm perplexed by his decisions.

This is one of the latter.

redsock said...

FKR - 100 000 2
LAA - 404 301

TB batting in 7th

redsock said...

Tito says he likes Cash's defense.

But that really sucks, too, so who knows?

Amy said...

I will miss this one. Well, I will hear it but not be able to thread. GO SOX! Let Lester be Lester.

redsock said...

Bit of change of plans:

Wakefield pitching tonight.

Matsuzaka has a sore lower back and will not pitch against the Rays on Friday. Lester will make that start and Wakefield starts in 10 minutes

redsock said...

Alright, EI: Where is fuckin game?

redsock said...

470 - it's NESN, bitches!

And it's ON!

mattymatty said...

I just looked at my prediction for the Sox in the 2010 W-L Contest. I said 99-63. For that to happen the Sox will have to go 26-9 the rest of the way.

redsock said...

Felix's last 10 starts: 3-5, 1.67!

In Hernandez's 10 losses, the Mariners have scored a TOTAL of 10 runs.

redsock said...

the Sox will have to go 26-9 the rest of the way

let's get rockin'.

s1c said...

Wakefield in the cold and rain - not good for the knuckle - hope the wind is blowing sideways or in his face!

redsock said...

Tim-E!

redsock said...

Refill the wine glass, have a quick cry with Tala, see a Wakefield error ... and I'm ready to go!

redsock said...

wow - nesn's shows are getting worse.

athletes' houses, fuckin fitzy -- where is sox appeal?

nesn blows.

redsock said...

and the show they say is for dedicated fans, they ask "does player x have enough heart"?

horrible.

why not have some shows with actual sports, historical stuff, classic games?

meunier said...

Lineup is wrong, you have Lowrie as playing 1B also.

redsock said...

thanks, playing 2B now!

s1c said...

Well thought that this would be the last Sox game that b-fly and I watch together but - she's going on another date - YIPPPEEE!!!

redsock said...

MFY - 0
TOR -

redsock said...

shit, felix better not keep that up.

redsock said...

hmm, beltre hot re: K
which was right over the plate

and ejected.

tito out too

redsock said...

tito tossed too

Zenslinger said...

It seems to me there are many reasons why we're at a disadvantage for this game.

Toronto up 2-0 over the Yanks. Second run courtesy of...

PASSEDBALLA!

redsock said...

hmm, was west being a dick to beltre?

fuckin tito is on fire

redsock said...

fill-in ump tossed him?

lovely.

what a crock of shit mlb umps are.

s1c said...

Well Beltre was just tired of getting wet.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

This is crazy. A stinkin' call-up ref tosses Beltre and nobody knows why. Then Angel has to come out and **protect** him. Give me a fracken break.

redsock said...

the raindrops were massaging his scalp?

navarro in at 3B

redsock said...

fwiw, the pitch was in amica's zone, but i assume beltre thought it was low.

redsock said...

strand these dicks

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, but when was he thrown out? It looked like either he didn't know he was ejected and went out on defense or he was thrown out after going out on defense.

redsock said...

no idea, as of now.

Zenslinger said...

Toronto got out of their jam (an MFY named Nunez grounded out with the bases loaded). Let's get out of ours.

Zenslinger said...

Or not.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Extra Bases says he was thrown out when he went out to third base,"chirping" about the call.

Ish said...

You have to tell them when the last time you crossed the border was?

meunier said...

This game looked like a loss before it started :(

redsock said...

FUCK THESE FUCKIN COMMERCIAL. SHOW THE GODDAMN FUCKING GAME

FUCK THE 99 FUCKING FOOD

nick said...

If I ran NESN from Cyn's Toeing the Rubber.


Kalish double!

redsock said...

if they ask, yeah.

they have the info on their screen when they ask, of course.

nick said...

10 run inning here we come!

SoSock said...

Damn, missed a lot in just 2 1/2 innings.

Belter and Tito tossed?
Dice hurting - Wakefield starting on a 30 second notice?
Wake makes an error on the 1st play of the game?
What the hell is next?

Wait, maybe I shouldn't ask.....

SoSock said...

Trading errors. Please do not squander...

Zenslinger said...

Two PIT players named McCuthchen score one after another on a bases-clearing triple.

redsock said...

maybe scu-scu can tie it up

Zenslinger said...

So there is a way for Cash to reach base.

redsock said...

FELIXBALLA!

redsock said...

must attack for runs

redsock said...

YES - E-6 X 2

nick said...

ugly, ugly, ugly. take it!

s1c said...

Thank you JOSH WILSON!!!

SoSock said...

C-mn Scut. Put it in play at least.

Or just stand there and watch it go to the backstop. Same difference :)

nick said...

J.D. Fire.... c'mon!

SoSock said...

E6 - WP - E6

Now that's baseball.......

redsock said...

make the gifts count.

Zenslinger said...

YES - E-6 X 2

So there is a way to score on Hernandez.

redsock said...

fuck you - no swing

SoSock said...

Damn JD......

Zenslinger said...

SF has fallen behind 12-11 going into the bottom of the 12th in a playoff-meaningful game vs CIN. Earlier the Giants were down 10-1.

Ish said...

3-1 in the 3rd? How the fuck did this happen!?

SoSock said...

Oh well, got 1 back anyway.

Get your groove going Timmy!

nick said...

guess that was a 1.0 run inning. minor typo on my part before.

Ish said...

I'm so glad the Customs guys who work the Maine border aren't total douche bags.

redsock said...

tor dong = 4-0

redsock said...

wells dong. tor 4-0, bot 3rd

Ish said...

Why did Beltre get ejected? Did Joe West rub his head or something?

tim said...

here we go! i had a similar freakout trying to find the game on EI.

yay regular-D feed. stupid rogers.

redsock said...

seems like he bitched about the called strike 3 pitch and a fill-in ump wanted to act tough and ran him.

redsock said...

MFY - 000
TOR - 202

nick said...

some decent plays from Lowrie there.

tim said...

beer opened, wine up next and feet up for the night.

how bout a fucking W i can watch now, you scrubs?

tim said...

i would really enjoy picking up 1.5 on tampa today.

fuck you branyan. all-laxatives team?

redsock said...

atchison up

redsock said...

PA: "This umpiring crew is easily the worst in the majors with publicity-seeking clown Joe West the chief and Angel Hernandez out there. ...

The third strike on Beltre was low and got pulled up by the catcher. Beltre chirped about it from third base when he went out to play defense and Bellino threw him out from 90 feet away.

Beltre came running over and had to be restrained by the other umpires and Kevin Cash. Terry Francona came out to defend his player and also was tossed."

Okay.

"There would seem to be little chance this game ends well for the Sox."

FU, PA!

SoSock said...

Good work Timmy!

So I know I could look it up myself, but.....
Did the pen get used much this afternoon? I can't see Wake going more than another inning, maybe 2 before they find their rhythm against him.
Of course, I would love for him to make an asinine fool out of me.

tim said...

WTF linescores of the day:

ATL - 343 000 000 - 10 14 2
COL - 010 013 304 - 12 14 0

and

CIN - 404 110 001 001 - 12 16 1
SFG - 010 022 060 000 - 11 18 5*

* - 5 errors?! jesus

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Sosock, Bard and Pap both pitched this afternoon.

tim said...

thames dong @ skydome.

4-2 shithawks.

redsock said...

click on red sox on afternoon linescore for the box.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

BTW SoSock, I wasn't able to comment on your posts the other night about the bbq and guitar playing. That sounds great. I'm glad you were able to do that. You should join in the guitar playing as much as possible. It's gotta feel good.

tim said...

Yeah, that sounded like a swell old time. Just remember to bring the air mattress next time :>)

fuck sakes kotch rocket.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Another one from PA re Wakefield:

He has pitched pretty well, all things considered.

What things??

redsock said...

hold the line, timmeh

Mrs.GotRibe said...

I like Kalish!

redsock said...

YEAH!

Ish said...

Wakefield pitching, Atchison warming in the bullpen... does that qualify us for Beer League play?

redsock said...

what things?

his own error?
the hits and runs allowed?

?

tim said...

booooooooo

redsock said...

attell in, i suppose.

tim said...

felix at 75 pitches, would like to see them take some pitches this inning and get him out of there after 6.

SoSock said...

Damn - I was afraid of that. Glad Tito didn't drag it out though. Move on now....

redsock said...

OH FUCK THAT FUCKIN SHIT

tim said...

maybe attell can get 2 K in 0.1 innings.

Benjamin said...

Too bad Tito isn't there to praise Cash's defense.

Ish said...

Nice bunt, Dainty Ichiro.

redsock said...

COUNT THE RINGZ!!!

Kevin Cash - 1
Ted Williams - 0

tim said...

he IS dainty. what a great word.

mo'fucker weighs 84 lbs.

Benjamin said...

Cash has two rings.

SoSock said...

Atch in, I'm OK with that. (he says as if it really matters)

Thanks. Ms GT and Tim. I did have a great time, and was really glad that I ponied up and even took the lead a couple of times. I just get so uptight because I hear every little flaw when I play. I know very few others ever notice, but it's taking a lot of encouragement from friends who play for a living to get it through my head.

Ish said...

Now here's Pubic Chin with dicks on the pond.

redsock said...

if there ain't flaws and bum notes, it ain't rock and roll.

tim said...

I agree with Rotoworld here:

"Still, it'd be nice to see [Beckett] turn in a quality start against a good offense one of these months."

tim said...

choda chone?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

And he peters out!

tim said...

0.1 IP
2 K

sweet.

Ish said...

Ask and you shall receive, Tim. Well, this time, anyways...

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Crazy stat Tim.

Benjamin said...

(Cash has one ring with Us and another ring with Them.)

redsock said...

time to make our move.

redsock said...

20-min wait - YEAH!

redsock said...

my point stands - he is a winner. tsw and ernie banks are losers.

redsock said...

my point stands - he is a winner. tsw and ernie banks are losers.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

OMG. Since all the talk here and elsewhere, I can't ignore these in-game ads anymore. It is driving me CRAZY.

Benjamin said...

time to make our move.

MOVING

redsock said...

ON FIRE

Mrs.GotRibe said...

FIRE. Werd up!

s1c said...

ok, here they come!!!

tim said...

ON FIRE DONG!!!!!!!!!!

Such a selfish prick, homers without anyone on base.

Benjamin said...

SOMEONE SET THE MOVING TRUCK ON FIRE

SoSock said...

if there ain't flaws and bum notes, it ain't rock and roll.

:) I'll remember that....

Walking Itchy with 2 outs - not the worst move in the world. Especially when you can follow it with some "K-chone" music

Drew - ON FIRE!! (well, at least in this ab)

redsock said...

do it, wicktor.

redsock said...

we need some good times, flo.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Broken bat flare. Much better when they occur for you instead of against you.

tim said...

just poured myself a glass of the pelee island pinot noir that i was drinking at A+L's house.

as far as i know, they are undefeated when i consume this wine. therefore, its a lock tonight.

redsock said...

shit - schooled

keep the line movin, rook.

Benjamin said...

Broken bat flare. Much better when they occur for you instead of against you.

I'd feel the same way about King Felix.

Benjamin said...

BEEP BEEP HONK HONK THE MOVING TRUCK'S COMING TO YOUR TOWN BEEP BEEP HONK HONK OH SHIT IT'S BROKEN DOWN

redsock said...

... fitzy on his knees blowing the sponsor during the ad for his show. very appropriate.

fuck fitzy.

redsock said...

mdc up

redsock said...

cranking bob mould's "moving trucks" might help.

tim said...

was going to say, you know what'd be great? an OTT.

well, guess that wont happen. you can start now though, dave. GIDP would also be acceptable.

redsock said...

see athletes "big homes ... and even bigger hearts"

fuck you nesn.

tim said...

almost. well, another chance for one of 'em.

tim said...

you pay too much attention, allan. i have no idea what any of these references are to, guess i've just developed an immunity to advertising.

fuck you runner!

tim said...

hey, look at all those empty seats!!!!!

wonder if the sox are celebrating their 202302392nd sellout????

redsock said...

BBI Kotch?

Ummm, okay.

tim said...

don't question demarlo!

this guy's damn near cashian, i guess it was a decent call.

tim said...

nava
lowrie
kalish
---

do it, pawsox!

redsock said...

remy says in the first game in the kingdome, he walked, stole second, stole third, and scored on a ground out.

all correct, but he scored on a don baylor double, not an out.

redsock said...

it begins at 9:02

redsock said...

HILL dong off vazquez

6-2 jays top6

tim said...

wells a 2b away from the cycle in t.o.

redsock said...

it begins at 9:03

Mrs.GotRibe said...

It sure would be nice to win while others are losing.

tim said...

Mrs - Ha! That's not how things are done in boston! Haven't you been following the past two months?

tim said...

fuckin felix.

Benjamin said...

At least he's at 105 pitches.

tim said...

really hope demarlo pulls back cash if kalish reaches...

redsock said...

got to get on ryan, so we do not have cash mar the 8th

redsock said...

with cash leading off the 8th, we have 5 outs to work with.

tim said...

fuck sakes, dishwasher.

its in the part of the cycle where it sounds like a UFO is descending or a bomb is dropping.

SoSock said...

Speaking of minor leaguers - went down to the new ballpark to catch the Dash playing Salem, Boston's single A team.
Arrived at the end of the 1st, watched bits of the 2nd from the lines while helping my sister get her 2 girls food and drinks and get them to their seats. Then the bottom opened up between the 2nd and 3rd. Watched them work on the field for about an hour and a half before they finally called it. My sister's 4 yr-old, who was at her 1st ballgame said - "Baseball games suck!" very loudly, numerous times. It was still a hoot

tim said...

i wouldn't mind seeing a foul tip breaking cash's thumb or ankle.

also, apparently they finally used the 's' word (surgery) in discussing pedroia's ailments. he might not be back.

tim said...

heh, definitely not a good first game experience there.

you should've told the salem catcher you were a red sox scout, and to pack his shit and get on the next flight to boston.

redsock said...

ugh

our felix up

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Tim, I've got one word for you....Bosch

Nary a sound comes from the dishwasher since we upgraded.

What was that Drew?

tim said...

wtf was that, drew?

redsock said...

walkoff vs aaaaaardsma?

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Salem. I am only about 2 hours from there and have not made it to a game yet. I'll get there sometime.

Yes, some baseball games do suck. Yet, still we watch.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Oh, the change in my avatar is in honor of Cody.

redsock said...

sad eyes!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

If I had any pictures of my Border Collie mutt (THE BEST DOG IN THE WORLD...who died in 1996) on my computer, I'd have put that one up.

tim said...

Yeah, I was at someones house sitting in a kitchen, and they had a dishwasher running - I didn't even know! Wonder if it was a bosch as well... but, I'm renting so the fact that there even is a dishwasher is good. And the landlord gets to pay to fix it :)

Its loud, but i don't mind the normal sounds - this UFO thing creeped the hell out of me the first time I heard it, now its just annoying and loud.

when i really make it in this world - i'm gettin a bosch! ill take your word for it.

redsock said...

Lynch sent me some links to pics of his border collie. If there was not an ocean between us, I'd be over there stealing that dog. ... Or at moving in.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yes, she does have sad eyes these days. She really has not been the same for the past two years. She misses Harley.

I had a yellow lab mutt growing up and we named her Sad Eyes.

redsock said...

L & I go gaga for border collies.

I took Tala to the park today and one of the dogwalkers had a small skinny border collie. I was in luv.

tim said...

:( sad eyes. so sad.

speaking of co-pal dogs, how is tala doing?

SoSock said...

Thank you. My tolerance for MDC is about at the same level as Amy's is for Papelbon

tim said...

my friend/study partner has a border collie/aussie shepherd - such a beautiful dog

tim said...

lets go, douby brotha!

(not that kind of brotha, you racist)

redsock said...

they are scary smart.

tala is a bit off. ate maybe 1/4 of dinner. now sleeping in front of tv.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

While I love labs, you can't beat Border Collies for personality, fun, and LAUGHS. I bet you have plenty of funny stories about Cody.

One of my favorites about Tribe was when she walked in the house, opened her mouth, and out jumped a frog! She was bringing in a playmate.

tim said...

never thought i'd be so happy to see hall in my life.

felix gassed?

redsock said...

as long as tala has been here, cody has been here, not as alpha, really, but with a seniority that was respected.

and now she has left -- and she's never coming back. not like that time, for 2-3 days. i hope her funk does not last too long.

tim said...

hmm. i could see the dog partners taking it harder than the humans. sounds like shes doing ok though.

HALL!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Double!! Let's Go Sox.

redsock said...

Kingdom Hall: "Awake!"

tim said...

yeah, thats what i was thinking - cody has been around for all of tala's life (with you guys) - it will be interesting to see how she adjusts.

bunt better not be on here.

redsock said...

maybe they adjust and move on faster -- who really knows? they can adjust to a LOT of shit -- but they have no idea what happened.

she is there and then ... gone. wtf?

redsock said...

kind of like this SEA lead

here -- and gone.

tim said...

wells is due up fifth for toronto in the bottom of the 8th...might have to check that out after this comeback.

not at your hands though, scut. jeeze.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Yep, T never knew life without Harley. But Harley was definitely in charge so I imagine there was some adjusting to that as well.

I hope Tala perks up soon.

redsock said...

depends on the dog too.

buster was gone and cody -- who loved him sooooooooooooooo much - barely missed a beat.

tim said...

yeah, dogs really do "live in the moment" - but they are also creatures of habit, so definitely will be weird to change the habit of always having cody around.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Did they sleep together or near each other?

tim said...

hernandez cooked.

keep him in!!!!!

SoSock said...

Time for a SPECIAL!

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Okay, let's hit their bullpen. Time to rally.

tim said...

brandon league in.

ez.

tim said...

ugh, so close.

Mrs.GotRibe said...

Ohhh, just foul.

redsock said...

tala always slept in our room.

cody often did not. in her early years, she slept as far away in the apt. as possible!

in the last year, she HAD to be beside my side of the bed. with her anxiety and her bad hips, we wanted to keep her in the bedroom, so we closed the door. so she eventually ended up sleeping in tala's crate while tala slept by L.

so in the same room, but not near each other. cody hated any dog getting too close. she's growl and get up and move, even if tala was 5-7 feet away. still too close!

she spent her last week in the crate or by my side of the bed, alone in the quiet dark, not wanting to go outside to eat or drink. and she LOVED laying in the sun, even a month or two ago.

redsock said...

blue lite

redsock said...

time to be the man, flo.

nick said...

been busy working over here...

c'mon papi, papi, papi!!!

tim said...

single ties it....most likely...come on flo!

tim said...

oppo papi not to be :(
