G56: Red Sox 11, Orioles 0

Red Sox - 310 310 012 - 11 16  0
Orioles - 000 000 000 - 0 5 0
Buchholz: 9-5-0-1-2, 101. He lowered his ERA to 2.39, #2 in the American League, behind Tampa's David Price (2.29).

Nick Cafardo, Globe:
Jeremy Hermida left the game with a left forearm contusion as a result of his [third inning] collision with Adrian Beltre. ... Hermida appears to be day-to-day but it certainly thins out Boston's outfield unless Mike Cameron returns tomorrow.
The Rays lost to the Rangers 9-6 (Texas chased Wade Davis with a 7-run fourth) and Brett Cecil and the Blue Jays beat the Yankees 6-1. New York stays 2.5 GB, while Boston and Toronto move up to 4.5 GB.
Clay Buchholz / Chris Tillman

Ten-Cent Beer Night

Ah, the good old days of drunken rioting, before the game got ruined by whatever ruined it next.

Geez, what were they thinking???

Ten-cent beer night - my god. That account on wikipedia is fucking outrageous.

What did they think would happen?!?!

I can't remember if I mentioned it here in the past, but I remember my dad telling me about going to the ten-cent beer night in Milwaukee (we lived in Madison at the time). It must've been the one in '76 mentioned in the Wikipedia article. No rioting, but guys urinating everywhere and rivers of piss flowing through the stadium and down the ramps. Lovely. For some reason he'd often think of it as we were walking into stadiums together at games of my youth.

I went to see the Salem Red Sox last night... off to see the real thing at the Orioles tomorrow afternoon - John Lackey on the mound.

On Thursday we went to see Greensboro Grasshoppers rather than Winston-Salem Dash as their beer promotion was better!

I think this is your box score, LL.

Was it (semi-adjusting for inflation) "50 cent beer" night?
