It’s Raining Runs: Rays-Sox Gamer VI

So that’s what it looks like when the Sox field a full lineup. With the starting nine bats all healthy for the first time since the first week of April, the Sox picked up Josh Beckett (who had an off day, and the Sox hope he can continue having such off days) slaughtered the Rays and go for the sweep today.

Jon Lester faces Scott Kazmir, who makes his 2008 debut and has generally been quite good against Boston. Here’s hoping Lester doesn’t have an off day, as well. With him, it’d more likely be eight runs in four innings instead of the other way around. Coco Crisp replaces Jacoby Ellsbury in the lineup, while Brandon Moss is unavailable following an emergency appendectomy last night.

Comment away!

    If looking as his season as a whole one could say his off day has been his better games so maybe we sghould hope for an off day :p

  • Ahh, I love afternoon baseball. Let’s hope Kazmir is a little rusty, though I doubt it.
    Awww, the kid announcing the Rays lineup is struggling a little bit. It’s okay kid, relax!

  • Woah, Ortiz is out?

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 1:44 pm
  • WHEW, glad Manny’s DH’ing tonight cause Ellsbury barely makes the play in left. Lester out of trouble.

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 1:53 pm
  • YES! Ellsbury showing off his speed again with the infield single.

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 1:57 pm
  • Okay wtf, the video on mlb.tv just went out for 5 minutes, and then when it came back it’s with the Tampa Bay announcers. Lame!

  • Giving up hits to Cap’n = rusty

  • Meanwhile, Silva is curing whatever ailed the Yankees bats……

    dabize May 4, 2008, 2:29 pm
  • 11 hits, 7 runs in 3 innings? Damn Silva.
    GOD BLESS COCO!

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 2:30 pm
  • And Boof is getting savaged by Detroit.
    6 hits in the first 8 faced, and when he strikes out Pudge, he STILL gives up a run.
    And we get to face them next……nice kitty……

  • Speaking of the Yankees, ESPN are saying IPK has been sent down to the minors

  • Damn. Was hoping to get some insurance there. 1 run is not gonna cut it when our Pen comes in.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:38 pm
  • Boof strikes out the side in order…..but gives up 6 runs first.
    Hope he’s still there for us bext weekend.

  • Pedroia loves those diving plays

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:42 pm
  • Awesome movement on the ptich for strike 2.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:43 pm
  • Desperatly needed quick inning there.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:45 pm
  • Thank god he had a quiet innings, the way he was going Lester wouldn’t have gone more than 4

    Anonymous May 4, 2008, 2:46 pm
  • Aw man Youk. Straighten that out just a little.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:50 pm
  • Great!

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:51 pm
  • Manny JUST misses 497 on the wall ball double to score Youk

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 2:55 pm
  • Drew grounds out and we only get two thanks to Mikey and Tek struggling. Still.. 3 runs through three against KAZMIR? I’ll take it. 72 pitches as well.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 3:02 pm
  • 1 more inning like that an Kazmir should be done, i cant see them letting through more than 100 pitches in his first game back

    Polf May 4, 2008, 3:04 pm
  • Gah, Heidi Watney talking while actual baseball being played = painful.

    stuck working May 4, 2008, 3:05 pm
  • At least she’s nice to look at

    Polf May 4, 2008, 3:11 pm
  • pfft Polf. Amalie Benjamin is better to look at.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 3:24 pm
  • I didn’t say I didn’t prefer brunettes

    Polf May 4, 2008, 3:27 pm
  • Is anyone anyone else watching on MLB.tv, I just wanted to know if they show the adverts in the US, between innings

    Polf May 4, 2008, 3:32 pm
  • I’m on mlb.tv Polf, and they don’t show any advertisements. I have no idea why–you’d think they’d make some nice coin doing that.
    Homerun by Pena = lame.

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 3:45 pm
  • Even if they change the game in progress screen to show a billboard type advert

    Polf May 4, 2008, 3:51 pm
  • Sigh, crappy baserunning by Drew.

    Atheose May 4, 2008, 3:57 pm
  • Sox should have more runs than they do, and now Manny Delcarmen’s year of hell continues. This game is slipping away.
    Thanks, MDC. What did you do in the offseason, take suck pills?

    SF May 4, 2008, 4:13 pm
  • Way to go Youk

    Polf May 4, 2008, 4:28 pm
  • YOUK!

    rootbeerfloat May 4, 2008, 4:30 pm
  • Just tuning in – why is Ortiz out? Knee problems?

    rootbeerfloat May 4, 2008, 4:30 pm
  • Yes RBF, hes got a stiff knee

    Polf May 4, 2008, 4:33 pm
  • Paps tells Navarro to get outta that box

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 4:50 pm
  • Youk comes up big again

    Polf May 4, 2008, 5:08 pm
  • One.

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 5:12 pm
  • Two!

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 5:15 pm
  • THREE!!!!! SWEEPING WATER!

    Dionysus May 4, 2008, 5:17 pm
  • I was at the game, so I was unable to see how gorgeous Heidi Watney is. I did see that a woman was in the booth, but from the upper bleachers, I had to guess that it was Shonda talking about the evils of sunlight or something.
