G151: Orioles 9, Red Sox 1

Orioles - 000 001 314 - 9 13  0 
Red Sox - 010 000 000 - 1 8 2
Marco Scutaro dropped an easy popup that should have been the final out of the sixth inning. Instead, the ball fell and Baltimore got an unearned run off Buchholz (6-4-1-3-5, 112) to tie the game.

The Orioles scored three quick runs against Scott Atchison in the seventh when Ty Wigginton's home run sailed just fair past the Pesky Pole. The game was pretty much out of reach at that point at 4-1 -- but Baltimore felt like having more fun, so they tacked on another four runs off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth.

The Yankees beat the Rays 8-3, so New York leads the East by 2.5 games. Boston remains 6.5 GB Tampa Bay in the WC with 11 to play.

Example
September 21:

1958 - The Red Sox complete a three-game sweep of the Senators, 2-0, 2-0, 2-0, at Fenway Park. In today's game, after being called out on strikes with two men on to end the third inning, Ted Williams throws his bat away. It sails into the stands and hits Gladys Heffernan, the 69-year-old housekeeper of Red Sox GM Joe Cronin, in the head. She is not badly hurt, but Williams is loudly booed in his next at-bat. This incident comes less than two months after Williams incurred his second spitting-related fine in less than two years.

1975 - The Red Sox beat the Tigers 6-5, but rookie Jim Rice suffers a broken wrist when he is hit by a Vern Ruhle pitch in the second inning. He will miss the rest of the season, the ALCS, and the World Series.

I am really glad we didn't trade HH.

meunier said...

At least I won't have to watch them get eliminated, I am going to the Dominican for a week tomorrow.

FKR - 011
MFY - 50

"Small Game", indeed.

Ken Burns in NESN booth talking about "The Tenth Inning." This must be the most interesting booth interview I've ever seen. A lot of quality analysis.

How cool. I'm a big Ken Burns fan. I am really looking forward to this one.

Ish said...

I don't know when you'll be able to see it but it'll be on PBS here in the US on Sept 28-29.

meunier said...

Did anyone see that movie "The Town" where Fenway gets a lot of screen time in it?

L-girl said...

Several of my friends (not Boston ppl) absolutely loved The Town. Went crazy over it.

We get Detroit and Buffalo PBS stations. But we'll probably end up waiting til it's out on DVD.

meunier said...

Same for me with the movie

meunier said...

Lost it in the lights?

redsock said...

that would be bad if this game meant anything ...

redsock said...

meanwhile, it is also about the 6th play in the last 3 innings that rish has called where his words do not match at all what is happening on the field.

L-girl said...

That's not against the Ken Burns film. We only see movies on DVD.

nick said...

Just came back into the room in time for the unfortunate ground-rule double. Was that last pitch more of a strike than the ball before it?

redsock said...

yes, that is exactly what i said.

nick said...

fucknuggets.

Dr. Jeff said...

Aren't the Orioles in last place?

SoSock said...

Damn, losing to the freaking Orioles - again........

SoSock said...

Life!!!

SoSock said...

Oops, that's what happens when you're double-blogging :)

Mrs.GotRibe said...

OMG. I spend an hour on the phone with my brother and come back to this??

Zenslinger said...

I just saw The Town. Lots of good Fenway shots, especially under the seats. Loving yet not too sentimental. Affleck cannot resist reaching out to touch a plaque that reads "1912" they pass winding through the bowels of the park.

The movie is neither great nor bad. Competent direction, decent but unremarkable script. A lot of the crime stuff (especially escapes) a little hard to believe. Rent it.

nick said...

Yeah, I just walked back into it to. 8-run bottom of the 9th, I guess. International Day of Peace miracle?

redsock said...

HEY HEY HEY


rally?

Zenslinger said...

A rally would make the Mother's Day Miracle against this team look bad.

nick said...

2-out rally.

redsock said...

With this win, the Os are guaranteed a winning record under Showalter.

BFD.

nick said...

not so much.

SoSock said...

Damn, clean again.
It seems amazing to me that with all the injuries we have faced this year, we would still be right in the thick of a pennant chase if we had just taken care of business against the weakest teams in the league. True, we have owned the Angels at 9 - 1. And we have handled the Blue Jays and the Mariners pretty well at 12 - 6 and 7 - 3. But we are 8 - 8 vs the Orioles, 4 - 5 vs the A's, 4 - 4 vs the Indians, 3 - 3 vs the Tigers and just 4 - 3 vs the lowly Royals. All of which are teams with either sub 500 records or just barely at it.
Add about 1 or 2 wins against each of those 5 and you've got a whole different standings sheet.

SoSock said...

Um, make that 8 - 9 vs the Orioles now.

SoSock said...

So, with almost 2 weeks remaining the only real suspense, barring any major meltdowns, are the AL central and the NL wildcard. Everything else is just about locked up. Unless of course you count the AL east, but I don't consider it particularily suspenseful when both teams will make the postseason regardless. Although I imagine I would feel differently if the Red Sox were vying for a division title

SoSock said...

Correction - I misread the NL west, thinking the Giants were 5 games up. That's actually the closest race in the ML. And in that one, with the Braves holding the lead at the moment in the wild card race, it really does matter. So Zen and my son Taylor, who now lives within a couple hours of San Francisco, undoubtedly have an interest in that contest

tim said...

checkin in from panama to say 'what the fuck is this shit?'

SoSock said...

Wow, correction #2 - the AL central is NOT suspenseful. Must have looked at the elimination column instead of games behind.
That'll teach ME to come straight home from little league and try to talk intelligently instead of stopping by the bar for a few beers on the way. I'll make sure it doesn't happen again :)

the usual.
