Finish the Fight: Sox-Twins Gamer III

This morning, I finally started what I’d been planning to start for a week and a half, and began sweeping the house. Somehow the sight of me with a broom in my hand triggered my wife’s “get sh*t done” mentality, and we ended up re-organizing the house…finally putting away some crates that had been waiting to be put away for months, cleaning out an overstuffed closet, etc. The process is nearly finished, and we’ve only been moved in for like 11 months!

The Sox have done a good job of avenging the Fenway embarrassment from earlier this month, taking the series with a win yesterday. But for a season series win, they’ll need today’s game, too. The winner of today’s match will win the season series 4-3.

Welp, time to go move a treadmill. Maybe we’ll actually use it in its new space. You go ahead and comment. Maybe we’ll be done when the game is halfway over…

  • Terrible bunt by Chiriaco. Did Farrell order that?

  • Another 1-2-3 for Lackey. Quite economical with his pitches, too.

  • Base hit for Big Papi. First and third one out. Get us a cushion.

  • Napoli RBI single. 3-0.

  • Hicks drops a Nava fly ball to deep center. Bases loaded for Middlebrooks. Pitching change.

  • Will pops it up.

  • And Salty hits a dribbler to the pitcher. Squander.

  • Plouffe double. There go the perfecto and the no-hitter. No melt-down please!

  • One run would be acceptable here, though obviously you hope he finds a way to hold the runner at 2nd.

  • Uh oh.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:01 pm
  • And now a hit batter.

  • I’m getting fed-up with Chiriaco, much as we loved him last year.

    pale blue eyes May 19, 2013, 4:04 pm
  • Yeah, he’s just not great on either side of the game long term (I’m remembering a brutal game with 2 errors in an inning at 3rd and now this latest run-scoring silliness). Inning should be over.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:07 pm
  • Well, Chiricaco’s throwing error costs just one run. Still 3-1 Sox.

    pale blue eyes May 19, 2013, 4:09 pm
  • Just the 1, then. Undeserved blemish. Good to see Lackey not unravel being prone to the big inning recently and all.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:11 pm
  • Weak popup to foul territory near 1st. Yep…Ciriaco.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:12 pm
  • Mmmmmphhh…Roenicke makes a good play to deny Victorino the swinging bunt single.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:13 pm
  • And the half-inning is almost instantly over. Welp, back out there, Lackey.

    Devine May 19, 2013, 4:14 pm
  • 1-2-3 inning for Lackey this time. Only 84 pitches after 6. Rain coming on.

    pale blue eyes May 19, 2013, 4:21 pm
  • Rain delay. So Lackey probably will not come back out. On the other end this might also be it for Roenicke who’s been lights out after coming in.

    pale blue eyes May 19, 2013, 4:31 pm
  • Sox win 5-1…eventually. Streak is at 5.
