G145: Red Sox 9, Mariners 6

Red Sox  - 021 100 032 - 9 10  1
Mariners - 101 020 101 - 6 12 0
David Ortiz's three-run homer gave the Red Sox the lead in the eighth inning and RBI from Ryan Kalish and Josh Reddick added some insurance in the ninth.

Jed Lowrie hit two home runs -- a two-run shot in the second and a solo blast to begin the fourth. Adrian Beltre singled twice and doubled and Victor Martinez had two singles. His second hit came after two blown calls by home plate umpire Kerwin Danley*. Brandon League should have struck Martinez out to end the eighth inning with Seattle up 5-4, but strikes 2 and 3 were instead balls 2 and 3 -- and Martinez then blooped a hit to left. Beltre smoked a single to left and Flo cranked a 1-0 pitch to deep right-center for his 30th dong of the year.

* - Danley and 3B ump CB Bucknor screwed Matsuzaka (6-8-5-4-3, 105) on several pitches in the fifth and sixth innings, though those shitty calls did not lead to any additional runs. ... 2B ump Dana DeMuth botched a call in the fifth, calling Chone Figgins out on a steal attempt when he had beaten the throw. The score was 4-4 and Dice's next pitch was hammered for a double. ... And I have no doubt Doug Eddings blew a few calls at 1B, but nothing springs immediately to mind.

It was Ortiz's sixth season with 30+ homers for the Sox, tying Manny Ramirez for second place in franchise history. Ted Williams tops the list with eight seasons.

Ichiro Suzuki singled twice, doubled, walked, stole two bases, drove in one run, and scored four of the Mariners' six runs. Figgins singled four times and Franklin Gutierrez had three hits, including two doubles.

The Yankees beat the Rays 8-7 in 10 innings to re-take first place in the East. ... Boston is now 7 GB in the East and 6.5 GB Tampa Bay in the WC. They have shaved two games off the WC standings in three days.

Up top: Yankees/Rays (Nova/Garza), 7 PM
Example
September 14:

1935 - The Cubs beat the Dodgers 18-14 for their 11th straight win. The game also ends Chicago's string of 10 straight games without using a relief pitcher.

1990 - Ken Griffey, Sr. and Ken Griffey, Jr. hit back-to-back home runs in the top of the first inning of a 7-5 loss to the Angels. They were the first father/son to play on the same team. Tim Raines Sr. and Tim Raines Jr. were both in the Orioles' starting lineup for two games in October 2001.

1998 - The Royals score in all eight of their innings at bat -- 113 113 24x -- as they rout Oakland 16-6. .. And in Detroit: White Sox 17, Tigers 16 (12).

Luke French, heading up the All Language Team, with Charlie English and ... ?

L-girl said...

...Esteban German.

redsock said...

I thought we did this in his last start against us -- but he has never pitched against us. Must have simply been during a Seattle series.

L-girl said...

It does sound familiar. I remember being all pleased with myself for thinking of German. Maybe we were just gabbing off the thread. We do that sometimes! :)

Tentative 2011 schedule.

JoS3 in Toronto?
May 10-11 (Tue/Wed)
September 5-8 (M-T-W-T)

tim said...

September games in toronto? yay!

FSN Seattle? Fuck you!

meunier said...

Finally the Cubs get to come to Fenway, they have never been there in interleague play before.

tim said...

I don't see that schedule being accurate, unless we're sacrificing playing the AL West for purposes of interleague.

There's no games after LAA after May 5!

Only one trip to Oakland and a stupid minny-seattle trip which I don't see being realistic.

Probably a solid template though.

(I didn't read any comments on the thread to see if this was discussed at all)

meunier said...

Finally Varitek is back, even if he still can't throw out runners.

redsock said...

9casey said...

tim said...

It should have been done 60 games ago

tim said...

bogie needs a mulligan.

Benjamin said...

Mono x2!

redsock said...

erased a baserunner AND made an out.

fuck you bogar.

redsock said...

suffering thru the mariners feed. jay buhner joined the booth. good fuckin lord, but he's dumb.

tim said...

whatever, beltre was clogging them basepaths anyways.

tim said...

i muted an inning and a half ago.

9casey said...

CI has his first multi-hit game since Aug.21 and it took him 10 innings to do it...back up the Brinks truck...

redsock said...

redsock said...

i will mute as soon as laura goes to bed. she needs the audio as she is computing. my ears are bleeding.

tim said...

good.

we haven't had a fruitbat blown save in oh...3 days, time to get that updated.

tim said...

psft, some people.

just NO consideration.

redsock said...

tim - 76 will join sox in progress once ny/tb is done. should be nesn.

Benjamin said...

Cactus can juggle?

tim said...

good, wonder if that will carry over to the HD feed.

this lack of clarity is burning my eyes.

redsock said...

MUTED!!!!!!!!!!!

fuckers aren't even calling the gane. just making nonsense, moronic remarks and laughing like schoolgirls.

tim said...

mine was muted before the game started when they were doing the "keys to the game" or whatever.

key #1 was that dice-k needs to pitch faster.

that was the first, and last, straw for me.

Benjamin said...

Mine was already muted, as usual.

redsock said...

yeah, numerous "funny" "quips" about how slow he works and how many pitches he throws.

redsock said...

was watching the ny/tb game before this started and it was the rays feed.

they had one of those text polls. which do you like better: a slugfest or a "pitchers dual"?

L thought it was a deliberate pun. i said no way. (gotta get a screen shot!)

Patrick said...

Yanks win :(

redsock said...

MOOREBALLA

redsock said...

AL East flip-flop.

redsock said...

MFY - 004 021 000 1 - 8 13 1
FKR - 000 070 000 0 - 7 8 0

dumbo ph dong in 10th.

Patrick said...

I've been enjoying the Yanks/Rays series, even though I hate both teams.

I wish the post season was fashioning Red Sox.

tim said...

Doesn't help the sox situation.

redsock said...

fuckin rogers ASSHOLES have fsn on 76, too!

tim said...

cleanup on aisle 3. blue light singular.

redsock said...

nice grab, lopez.

meunier said...

Is that an error? Those idiots never said.

tim said...

lol, was about to post a similar comment.

yeah they do that with the mariners feed.

redsock said...

seemed very playable, but prob a hit.

tim said...

at least its in HD.

so much crisper. mmm.

redsock said...

i should go down to my office and get nesn onmy computer

tim said...

enough of this. sleep time for me. day 2 tomorrow!

it was quite odd this morning to wake up to a postgame alert email and not actually know the score of the game before opening it. enjoyable though, gives me something to look forward to before the 4 hours of suck.

redsock said...

alright, all set up down in the cave.

redsock said...

wow - cactus gets figgins at 3B!!

meunier said...

OUT

redsock said...

absolutely stupid decision by figgy (or the bench) to run

redsock said...

JED DOES IT AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Patrick said...

The force is strong with this one!

meunier said...

LIGHTSABER!

Benjamin said...

MonoMono

redsock said...

michael saunders - canadian.

redsock said...

hmmmm, why not go to third on that?

nick said...

bastards trying to make sure I don't get to bed at a reasonable time. bah.

redsock said...

4 pitches and dice in a serious hole

redsock said...

rich hill up

nick said...

run of the ancient Mariner.

meunier said...

Got away with one there.

redsock said...

kalish trying out for the circus

nick said...

safe?

nick said...

He's gonna break a rib out there or something.

redsock said...

bowden up too

redsock said...

F U CB!

jesus fuckin christ -- two blatant blown calls.

redsock said...

bucknor is one of the fuckin worst umps in the game. plus THAT is how umps can throw games. give hitters extra chances and hope the next guy can cash in. not fool proof, but if you do it enough ... reading about the crooked nba refs makes me think this is very possible.

redsock said...

and dice gets fucked on an obvious strike 3.

redsock said...

ichiro single -- i'm assuming he will steal second in a minute

first, jeemer in

Dr. Jeff said...

Time to shut this pseudo-rally down.

redsock said...

K - whew!

Patrick said...

I'm gonna miss Oki when he's gone. He was friggin amazing for two years.

redsock said...

yeah -- i feel like he has been gone for awhile.

meunier said...

Should have left him in.

redsock said...

atchison up now

redsock said...

and he should be in very soon.

redsock said...

or next inning, i guess.

top o the order for the sox

Dr. Jeff said...

Needs to go deep here.

redsock said...

since lowrie's 2nd dong, 14 sox retired in a row.

c'mon victor.

Dr. Jeff said...

SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF LIFE FOR ONCE!!!

redsock said...

victor gets two gift calls on two inside strikes -- count 3-1 -- bloops a hit to short left.

redsock said...

bard and attell up

redsock said...

HIT!

meunier said...

DO IT AGAIN NOW.

redsock said...

Dr. Jeff said...

Thankfully, he didn't weakly ground the first pitch to the right side.

Dr. Jeff said...

YES!!

nick said...

redsock said...

redsock said...

redsock said...

shut em down, bard.

Dr. Jeff said...

Stock phrases I hate:

"He quickly goes 0-2."
"The tying run is at the plate."
"The [***] have a man in scoring position."

redsock said...

how about: "and just like that ..."?

--- HA don just said it!!!

Dr. Jeff said...

Football is worse. The announcers are constantly talking about how "he is moving the football down the football field" No shit. What, is he carrying a volleyball across the golf course?

redsock said...

"There's a strike."

redsock said...

"no doubles defense" makes me wanna strangle a puppy.

meunier said...

Straight gas homey.

redsock said...

insurance pls

Dr. Jeff said...

no reason to squeeze here, right? Esp. with a lefty?

redsock said...

SPEED!!!!!!!!!!!! RUN!!!

SoSock said...

Ka-lish-ious

redsock said...

we heart brandon league.

SoSock said...

mmmmm......reddick-alous

Dr. Jeff said...

You guys are up late. Only 11:15 for me.

redsock said...

with a 4-run lead -- i'm okay if itchy is on.

Dr. Jeff said...

Is Pap capable of making any outs?

redsock said...

jesus, pap, nail it down.

redsock said...

might not hurt to make sure atchison has his glove handy.

Dr. Jeff said...

NICE. Great game.

redsock said...

The water is Muddy!!!

And the deer ain't dead.

East: 7 GB MFY
WC: 6.5 GB FKR

A win tomorrow could make things somewhat interesting ...

Dr. Jeff said...

Strike 4.

Ish said...

Woooooo. Don't even touch that water.

SoSock said...

Nice. I may be on the bus anymore, but the motor is still running :)
