G158: White Sox 5, Red Sox 2

Red Sox   - 000 100 010 - 2  4  1
White Sox - 000 100 31x - 5 13 0
Beckett (6-11-4-4-5, 105) escaped a few jams -- leaving two on in the second and sixth, and leaving the bases loaded in the fifth -- before falling apart in the seventh, as Chicago's first six batters reached base.

Boston finished the night with four hits. Marco Scutaro doubled leading off the fourth and scored on David Ortiz's two-out single.

Mike Lowell homered to start the eighth and Jed Lowrie singled. After one out, Daniel Nava walked, putting the potential tying runs on base. But Scutaro popped up to first (on the first pitch) and J.D. Drew popped up to second (on a 1-0 count).
Example
Josh Beckett / Freddy Garcia
Scutaro, 2B
Drew, RF

Ortiz, DH

Kalish, CF
Nava, LF
Example
September 29:

1957 - At age 39, Ted Williams leads the AL with a .388 batting average. In his last 11 games, Williams hits .667/.813/1.611 for an OPS of 2.424! (Williams will win the batting title the following saeason, as well.)

1978 - Jim Rice becomes the first AL hitter to have 400 total bases since Joe DiMaggio (1937) as Boston beats Toronto 11-0.

Sounds like a very frustrating day up there for you all. Hopefully this game can be somewhat uplifting?

Amy said...

I just got home from a very long day at work.

redsock said...

yet more evidence (not that any was needed) that the liberals up here (like the dems down there) are fuckin worthless, spineless assholes who are cowards when it comes to having any non-conservative principles.

Amy said...

No one has a monopoly on cowardly politicians.

redsock said...

sure, but conservatives vote for conservative things, progressives vote for progressive things.

but liberals do not stand for anything, they are terrified of taking a stand and sticking with it. also, like the US dems, they talk like they are on the left, but when it comes to actually voting for something, they join the conservatives. (which is where they were all along, of course.)

redsock said...

i am pissed and cannot think straight. one huge problem was there were liberals who promised they would support the bill, then either did not vote YES or just happened to be out of the room when it was time to vote.

Amy said...

Wow, they changed their votes at the last minute? How did they explain that??

redsock said...

i don't think they have to explain it, but they likely will be getting a few phone calls tomorrow morning.

redsock said...

we are pretty sure our MP ducked the vote and hid somewhere until it was over.

redsock said...

wow -- VERY interested in seeing a replay of that play at 1B!

redsock said...

yeah -- VERY SAFE!

redsock said...

not sure lowrie was even in the same zip code as second base on the force, too.

redsock said...

jeemer up; tie game in peril.

Amy said...

Sorry, been in and out of the game. And the thread. Too long a day, and hard to stay focused on the game at this point....

tim said...

tim said...

yup, fuck the libs. talk about a definition of FLIP FLOP, and this complete absence of a spine. the fact that they can just disappear during a vote has bemused and boggled me since i learned about it.

absolutely unacceptable and unaccountable.

i'm sure they'll all be there when they're voting for their next raise.

tim said...

bah. what are wins worth, anyway.

Anyone want to comment on the Burns special tonight? Seeing the Red Sox 2003 series again was painful, but seeing the 2004 series against the Yankees brought back some great memories, particularly in light of the results of this season. IT WAS SO AWESOME. Maybe Allan can write a post about it.

tim said...

This needs a little Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back Style)...

All you motherfuckers are gonna pay, You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We're gonna fuck your mothers while you watch and cry like little bitches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax fucks who are making that movie, we're gonna make 'em eat our shit, then shit out our shit, then eat their shit which is made up of our shit that we made 'em eat. Then you're all fucking next.

Love,

Jay and Silent Bob

(except replace Hollywood with Ottawa, Miramax with Liberal and movie with vote)

With this outcome of the season, I wish the Red Sox could have played the Orioles or the Blue Jays or Rangers or, anyone but the Yankees, in the final series of the season.

I think you recapped it pretty nicely. ... When we got home, I turned it on and they were showing the 2001 WS. Then I went to the Sox game. Maybe I will tape a re-run.

You know what I sometimes think would be fun? Everyone get his/her 2004 DVDs and we can somehow start a game at the same time and do a thread!
