Home Sweet Home: Jays-Sox Gamer III

The Sox have taken the first two from the frontrunning Jays, evening the loss column.  Tonight they go for the sweep.  Jon Lester looks to follow Papi out of the doldrums, and it would be nice to see a good start out of the kid.  Comment away here.

  • That was delightful. Now let’s hope Lester pitches well. I’m almost more concerned about his performance than the win.

  • LFRS makes a solid play there.

  • Got fooled there off the bat on the small screen, though Barajas had crushed that. Bay hauls it in 20 feet short of the wall. Damn mini television screen had me worried.

  • Another baserunner, a solid liner to right. Two on, again. Lester working thru trouble for the second inning in a row.

  • Scutaro weakly to Youk, who shovels to Lester. Good wiggle. 3-0 Sox after 1.5

  • Quick side for the Sox, end of 2, still 3-0.

    SF May 21, 2009, 7:56 pm
  • Yes! Lester punches him out to end the top of the third. Still 3-0.

  • It’s very lonely here tonight.

  • Sorry, SF — I’m just in and out. But that’s more than I’ve been around for most of the season!

  • Welcome back Youk! 4-0 Sox on a single, knocking in Pedro.

  • Ok, here’s the top of the fifth. Seems like there have been some bad fifth innings for the Sox this year, but my memory could be poor.

    SF May 21, 2009, 8:35 pm
  • Papi drills one off his knee, spoils one, then lines one to right, good at-bat. 1/2 now, one down. 5-0 Sox.

  • Hey gentlemen,
    Just got in, glad to see we’re winning. How has Ortiz looked so far? Solid contact? No strikeouts thankfully.

  • Hey look, a strike-em-out-throw-em-out. I’m bad luck.

    Atheose May 21, 2009, 9:13 pm
  • Joba sent out for the 7th inning, gives up a run and is pulled. Lester sent out for the 7th inning, gives up two baserunners and is pulled.

    Atheose May 21, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • Ath, Joba left that game a long time ago, on a liner off his right knee.

  • Oh, whoops. I’m watching on MASN–I guess Albaladejo looks a LOT like him.

  • This is getting dicey…

    SF May 21, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • Pop-up in foul territory with the bases loaded to end the inning? Jizz in my pants.

    Atheose May 21, 2009, 9:29 pm
  • Phew.

    SF May 21, 2009, 9:30 pm
  • Another victory!
    On to the idiocy of interleague play.

    SF May 21, 2009, 10:07 pm
  • Very, very pleased with this one. Let’s hope they don’t take pity on the stumbling Mets.

  • Hey look a sweep. Nice.
    Hey Yankees, stop losing. Same for you, Rays. Fucking walk-off.

    Atheose May 21, 2009, 10:14 pm
  • finally the lineup that was penciled in coming out of spring training!
    good win. good series. toronto really seemed to oblige with impatient at bats and poor defense for 3 games. nice to see jon maybe work some things out. his control was better and he looked confident with both his fastball and curve. ellsbury continued his hit streak to 16 games. youk picks up where he left off. now to keep things rolling this weekend against the suddenly skidding mets.
