  • Two on, one down for Bay.

  • Damn, Millwood all over the place, walks two men, and Bay chases the first pitch. Shitty. Pop up.

    SF June 5, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • I can’t imagine them getting this game in, though, from the weather here in NYC, and when it started raining, a few hours ago.

  • what a DP by pedroia! beauty footwork around the bag.

    sf rod June 5, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • Yar, that was a great DP. Lowell really went for it on the throw, considering the runner was off with the pitch.

  • Drew reaches first thanks to a slight fumble by the 1B and some good hustle down the line.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 7:55 pm
  • Two more left on base. Arrgh. 5 LOB thru three.

    SF June 5, 2009, 8:02 pm
  • DEE-fense! Lowell with a nice play.

    SF June 5, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Papi with a K in his first at-bat, and in the second he flails off-balance and pops to Michael Young. Still looking really lost out there.

    SF June 5, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Then Tek gets out in about 1/2 a second.

    SF June 5, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • So far, this game is moving right along. Penny gets K #4 for the first out in the 5th.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:18 pm
  • Lugo shouldn’t have made that throw, there’s every chance he could throw it away. Great move to get a glove on it, though.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:20 pm
  • Almost picked him off, then Davis singles. 2 on, 1 down.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:22 pm
  • Ooooohhhh, a little near-collision for Bay and Ellsbury, think they might have been snippy with each other after Bay made the play shoulder to shoulder with Jacoby.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:25 pm
  • 1-0 Rangers…mmmmmm, Lugo maybe had a chance at knocking that down. Shame, would have saved the run.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • 4-0. BAM, it changes so fast, this game.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:30 pm
  • I want Lugo to die. I am not sure that I mean that metaphorically.

    SF June 5, 2009, 8:31 pm
  • Can we fire Lugo? Seriously Theo et al., it’s a lost cause, just eat the money and play the overachieving Green the next few weeks.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • Buried deeper. 5-0 and two RISP. Penny’s trade value sinking. Pitching change.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:55 pm
  • PS Lugo made another bum diving play in this inning to keep it alive.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:55 pm
  • Well, that certainly doesn’t help Penny’s value.

    AndrewYF June 5, 2009, 8:56 pm
  • Ha ha, the third out is achieved on a wild pitch that Varitek throws back to the pitcher to get Byrd at home.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • Ortiz just smiling and shaking his head at his ineptitude.

    AndrewYF June 5, 2009, 9:03 pm
  • Papi still stinks. Man, he should be turning and lining those inside fastballs.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:03 pm
  • Y’happen to know anything about the Rangers pen, Andrew?

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:15 pm
  • Understanding of course that Millwood is still in the game.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • Millwood pwnage.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • More Millwood in the 8th, huh? Kinda weird.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:32 pm
  • Bay and Lowell on to start the 8th, nobody warming in the Rangers’ pen when the inning started. Ortiz up. Guardado now warming.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • Ortiz line single to right. 1 run in. Pitching change.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Two down fast, Tek on a low curve swinging 3-2, and Ellsbury popping to left.
    Baldelli for Lugo PHing.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • Up the middle, but snared by Kinsler. Engine revs, then dies this inning.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • Yeah okay, pitch counts don’t matter, Nolan. Especially not for 34 year old pitchers.
    Does Ryan actually think every pitcher has a golden arm like he does?

    AndrewYF June 5, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • Yeah, Washington was a jackass to have him start the 8th. It’s the only reason anything got started tonight.
    Long foul ball from Murphy there. Wow.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 9:50 pm
  • O’Day, a submariner, walks the first two. Drew had to work for his walk.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • How do you keep in a reliever who just walked the first two batters of the inning? Especially when you have your closer on the bench?

    AndrewYF June 5, 2009, 10:07 pm
  • Youk K’s.

    Devine June 5, 2009, 10:07 pm
  • How do you not throw the ball to second there?
    Texas is trying to give the game away. They haven’t changed from the two series against the Yankees.

    AndrewYF June 5, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Game over. Ah well.
