Halos-Sox Gamer

Jacoby Ellsbury singled, stole second, and scored on a single from Kevin Youkilis to give the Sox a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.  It's Jered Weaver and Clay Buccholz, and the hits are coming early and often.  Comment away.

  • Buchholz looks awful.

  • I wonder if Tek can get a hit. He just missed two hangers. It does look like Tek should use a much lighter bat.

    SF May 2, 2011, 8:56 pm
  • Carl, don’t get picked.

    SF May 2, 2011, 8:57 pm
  • Wow, Weaver just got hosed on a 2-2 pitch to Tek. Strike by a mile.

    SF May 2, 2011, 8:58 pm
  • And Tek walks. That was totally lucky, Tek should be on the bench now with two down.

    SF May 2, 2011, 8:58 pm
  • Just a single, Jacoby…

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • Wish Carl could steal third here and then score on an out…

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:00 pm
  • The walk to Tek has certainly helped in quickening Weaver’s eventual exit – up to 90 pitches now. Jacoby at 2-2.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • Full count to Ells.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:02 pm
  • Ellsbury swings at ball four and taps to short. Crawford to third, Ells at first. Double steal ju-jitsu lookout!

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:04 pm
  • Come on Pedey.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:06 pm
  • A hanger to Pedey and he almost comes out of his shoes, fouls it back. Not a good looking swing from DP. 2-2 count, Weaver to 98 pitches with this one.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:06 pm
  • a couple more fouled off, Weaver about to throw his 100th. So there’s that, even if the Sox don’t score.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:08 pm
  • .108 for Varitek, that’s terrible. Another great at bat by Pedroia.

    BrentY SF May 2, 2011, 9:10 pm
  • monster at-bat here, either the 10th or 11th pitch to Pedey.
    and now 12.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:11 pm
  • What is more likely to happen first: the Sox get to .500 or the Bruins score on the power play?

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:12 pm
  • Epic from Pedey.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:13 pm
  • Pedey with the single, 3-2 Sox!
    What an AWESOME at-bat. 14 pitches I believe.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • He could get weaver out if the game.

    BrentY SF May 2, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • corrected – 13 pitches.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:14 pm
  • Nice what a stud

    BrentY SF May 2, 2011, 9:15 pm
  • And then amazingly Gonzo swings at the first pitch, tries to pull it, and taps weakly to second. THAT was a bad at-bat.
    But a great inning, made possible by an awful umpiring call on Tek. Thanks, Blue!

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:15 pm
  • Clay determined to fall behind every hitter.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:18 pm
  • Leadoff double.
    Go get him, Tito. He’s awful.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:19 pm
  • Tito determined to fall behind every team.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:20 pm
  • Jesus, what a risky play by Gonzo – he fields a hot grounder and fires to third, in the dirt, and Youk digs it out to get the lead runner. A huge play but that was all risk/reward, and the downside was enormous. Yikes.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:21 pm
  • so, this is why I am not a manager. Buchholz bears down and gets a couple of grounders to end the inning. Huge assist to Youk for digging out Gonzo’s throw. To the bottom of the sixth, 3-2 Sox.

    SF May 2, 2011, 9:25 pm
  • Maybe ortiz should lead off with all the singles he has been hitting. Yes I am kidding.

    BrentY SF May 2, 2011, 9:31 pm
  • FLOOD GATES OPENED!!!

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:00 pm
  • Beautiful boys, great running by Pedroia. Exciting stuff!

    BrentY SF May 2, 2011, 10:01 pm
  • Gonzales with the wall ball, Pedoria running behind Jacoby gets in, like Wesley Snipes in Major League!

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:04 pm
  • And Papi with the monster seat Jack

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:05 pm
  • Boom.

    SF May 2, 2011, 10:08 pm
  • …goes the dynamite, as the kids say today

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:09 pm
  • And Youk proves the long held theory that white men can not, in fact, jump

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • Dan Wheeler determined to keep it a close game.

    Atheose - SF May 2, 2011, 10:17 pm
  • Didn’t think we would see paplebon tonight, but after Wells shot into the Monster seats we may need him

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:19 pm
  • Holy crap keep Dan Wheeler from any game that is close than 7 runs. He is throwing BP!

    SF May 2, 2011, 10:19 pm
  • Wheeler is back out for more and gives up a quick base hit

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:30 pm
  • Oki making this one last longer than it should

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:40 pm
  • And the B’s win as well

    BillsBurgSF May 2, 2011, 10:42 pm
  • Nice thing about having MLB Extra Innings is I can flip over to the dodgers game after the Sox win and listen to the golden pipes of Vin Scully call the game without a “color analyst”
