Cellar Dwellars: Sox-Phillies Gamer II

The Phillies are 21-19 and sit in last in the NL East four back of Atlanta, while Boston lost last night to fall seven and half behind Baltimore. Charlie Manuel’s club is riding a six-game win streak. Joe Blanton faces the Sox, with Jon Lester — who is coming off one of his finer starts of the season — on the mound for Boston.  Comment away.

Ooops.. sorry, lost a day somehow. Fixed everything up.

  • Lester grounds into a dp but still helps the cause, as Sweeney scores.

  • It’s going according to the Red Sox version of the script more or less thus far.

  • Can’t watch game ’cause it’s a national broadcast and I don’t have cable, blackouts are so f*cking stupid.

  • Still, a lead’s a lead and Pedroia on with a single to start the 5th.

  • Papi. Yessir. One-run lead is now three-run lead.

  • Jeopardy, 2 on, 1 out in the 6th. Lester vs. Polanco. 0-2 count quickly.
    Then DP. Lovely.

  • One run scores, but the cushion remains two going into the 9th.

  • Scoreless 9th for Sox, to the bottom of the 9th, 7-5 Sox.

  • Damn, leadoff batter gets on.

    Devine May 19, 2012, 10:23 pm
  • On a bunt. Blergh.

    Devine May 19, 2012, 10:23 pm
  • Line into DP? Sweet. Then Wigginton gets on. Christ. 1 more, people.

    Devine May 19, 2012, 10:26 pm
  • Struck that motherf*cker out. Say goodbye to your win streak, Phils.
