Do It Again: Cards-Sox World Series Gamer II

Sox can only win three more games before they tell them to stop. A few more like yesterday would do just fine. Screw tension, I want solid, pressure-free wins…especially given the news that Peavy is throwing Games 3/7 and Buchholz Game 4.

But today is Game 2. That would be young phenom Michael Wacha vs. old horse John Lackey. Just gotta go .500 for 6 games. But a better winning percentage than that in fewer games would be dandy. Both of Boston’s last two World Series were sweeps. I don’t hold out much hope for that, but the games will tell all. Hold serve at home. Comment away.

  • Drew his usual self at the plate.

  • Wacha looks unreal, but Jacoby breaks up the no-hitter.

  • Pedey flashes the leather.

  • Fortunately Drew is also his usual self in the field. But the Cardinals have the 1-0 lead and with the way Wacha is pitching that seems like a lot.

  • Pedey double.

  • Wacha very careful with Papi. BB.

  • Shit, double play.

  • Ball 2 called strike 1. And Gomes pops up. Why not Nava, Farrell?

  • Lackey had Jay struck out, did not get the call, but Jacoby makes the catch.

  • With amazing self-discipline the announcers managed to not ask Peavy a question about Wacha. And Drew takes away a hit!

  • Another one hit to Drew, another out. Lackey at 72 pitches after 5.

  • I know I’m an alarmist but this seems like a must win to me. Not a lot of faith in Peavy or Buchholz….

  • Salty works a walk.

  • Man, Drew…blech.

  • Dutch Baby K’s

  • Lackey every bit as good as Wacha. If not for the unfortunate carom on Halliday’s triple this game would probably still be scoreless.

  • Now make Wacha throw some pitches. His pitch count is in the nineties.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 9:55 pm
  • Let us praise the Large Father!!!!!!

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 9:59 pm
  • Papi is soooooo good.

    Devine October 24, 2013, 9:59 pm
  • That’s probably it for Wacha. Unfortunately the Cardinals bullpen is better than the Tigers bullpen. So just hold the lead, Lackey.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:05 pm
  • Craig K’s.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:08 pm
  • i’m finally staring to warm to Lackey

    soxgirl October 24, 2013, 10:13 pm
  • Breslow in with two on, one out. Lackey was great.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:15 pm
  • Wish he’d gotten Freese, though.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:15 pm
  • Tense stuff…do it again, pen.

    Devine October 24, 2013, 10:15 pm
  • If ever there was a time for a double play, it is now.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:23 pm
  • crap, double steal

    soxgirl October 24, 2013, 10:23 pm
  • Boooo

    Devine October 24, 2013, 10:24 pm
  • Well fuck you Breslow.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:24 pm
  • My son’s little league does that. Lots

    soxgirl October 24, 2013, 10:26 pm
  • That was a quick inning for Martinez, largely thanks to Kozma.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 10:41 pm
  • Well, this game at least must bring an end to these silly hunches about Gomes.

    pale blue eyes October 24, 2013, 11:13 pm
  • Game over. That’s one that got away. Easy to say after the fact, but maybe Farrell should have stuck with Lackey a little longer.
