And This Time, It’s Impersonal: Rays-Sox Gamer III

The Sox send Clay Buchholz to the mound to try to hold the Rays down.  Clay gives up lots of runs, but it usually works out just fine because the Sox score lots more when he is pitching for whatever reason.  Except for the last time he faced the Rays, two starts ago at the Trop.  The opposing starter in that game was Jeremey Hellickson who was solid in that start but had a rough go against the Jays his last time out.  He's on the bump for St. Pete at Fenway.  Comment away.

  • With the Globe’s B team covering the Sox yesterday, this seemed to get lost in the shuffle: There was a bit of symmetry to Salty’s walk-off.
    Before the game, Carlton Fisk threw out the first pitch to Salty. It was some sort of recognition for the Game 6 homer against the Reds.
    Calling Saturday’s game on TV for Fox was Dick Stockton, who called Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.

  • Not watching the game, but following along on MLB Gamecast as I’m working. This new “Scout” feature is really an unsurpassed idiocy with the way it automatically generates observations. It said Buchholz was having trouble locating his fastball after going to 3 balls on Rhymes, despite also showing the third pitch as right in the zone though called a ball anyway.

  • Gonzo gives us the lead. Hoping for another stellar effort from the pen now. And more runs, of course.

    As I type, I pitch weak-ass pop out.

    This is beyond understanding.

  • C’mon Adrian. Let’s get together and do it again. 7 RBIs on the day would sound awfully good.

  • Aceves blows it. Shit.

  • Back-to-back walk-offs? Salty, Lin and Nava up. Hmm.

    pale blue eyes May 27, 2012, 4:54 pm
  • Nick Punto coming up to pinch hit. I’m sure that put fear into Rodney’s heart.
    And Nava battles in vain. Tough loss.
