Doc Who? A’s-Sox Gamer VI

While rumors continue to swirl around the Jays' recent decision to put 10-game winner Roy Halladay up for bid, the Sox will bring a 10-game winner to the mound for the second day in a row. Suck it, Toronto!

Tim Wakefield looks to deliver a series win against Trevor Cahill, who is coming off back-to-back starts in which he lasted a combined 7.1 innings and gave up 12 earned runs.

  • Our guys have plainly forgotten how to hit. No hits through three and Cahill has needed just 37 pitches. How do we make all these youngsters look like future hall of famers?

  • The various looks on OCab’s face after he struck out swinging on some serious Wake knuckle action just now were hilarious.

  • Drew homers to tie it, 1-1.
    The Sox are only being outhit, 8-2.

  • Pedey singles, Yooks walks

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • AND THEN PAPI HOMERS TO MAKE IT 4-1!
    A BLAST TO DEEP RIGHT.

  • Bay strikes out on a 3-2 foul tip for the first out.
    Now we have a pitching change. Yalie Craig Breslow coming on.

  • Ells singles, nearly gets picked off but OCab misses the tag and Ells gets an SB, his 37th.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 8:51 pm
  • Kotsay singles, runners on 1 & 3 w/ 1 out; Nick Green up.

  • With 8 Ks already, Wakes is also now in line for win #11, assuming the Sox can hold onto this lead… /nojinxes

  • Michael Wuertz, the ex-Cub, replaces Breslow.

    mlb.com gameday has posted Papi’s homer video.
    He just freakin’ crushed it into the wind.

  • Great inning to come home to!
    IBM, how’s your dad doing in recovery?

  • Wake pulled after a couple of singles. Huge ovation for the All Star.

  • I haven’t heard anything since early this afternoon, but the docs were very pleased with the way the surgery went. They expect him to make a full recovery.
    I would think he’d be in a private room and off the ventilator by now.
    I hope to hear something soon.
    And thanks for asking.

  • Big K for MDC.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • That was a strike to Suzuki!

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • That’s some BS right there. Strike 3 to Suzuki called a ball, and then a single plates 2 runs. Both charged to Wake.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:20 pm
  • Manny actually lowered his ERA with that outing.

    AndrewYF July 8, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • Diving play by Pedroia keeps the tying run from scoring.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:23 pm
  • Looks like Ram^2 will be getting the save tonight.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:49 pm
  • Nevermind, Paps is there after all.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:53 pm
  • Well it looks like this isn’t going to be easy.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 9:59 pm
  • Christ. what’s he throwing?

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:02 pm
  • Big K to Holliday.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • Suzuki won’t be an easy out, either.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:05 pm
  • Tying run at 2nd.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • Ack.
    Here comes all-or-nothing Cust.
    MLB Network doing a live cut-in.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:09 pm
  • We have inefficient Paps tonight.
    Ram squared up in the pen, now.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • I honestly think Paps is our secret playoff weakness this year. I’m just waiting for the huge meltdown in the big spot – he’s really, really not the same pitcher he was.

    Micah-SF July 8, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Agreed Micah, he’s pitching like Daisuke: lots of baserunners (1.324 WHIP) with a ridiculously low ERA (1.70).
    AND HE BLOWS ONE BY CUST! Wakefield now the sole wins leader in the AL.

    Atheose July 8, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • Game!
    And it only took 30 pitches by Paps.
    Wakefield gets his 11th win.

    I'mBillMcNeal July 8, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • Phew.
    Paps is walking too many guys.

    Devine July 8, 2009, 10:20 pm
  • I think Ell’s got the benefit of Jeter’s call (or missed call) on the ol’ ball beat you there thing in that pick off. OCab definately missed (well, he did actually get him on the foot) but normally he would have been called out.
