Live from Seattle: Sox-M’s Gamer III

Sox won a long one last night, the grittiest 11-8 win you’ll see this year, and the good part of the bullepn is gassed (and Aceves seemingly hurt). Breslow: 2.1, Bailey: 1.2, Tazawa: 1.0, Uehara: 1.0. Time for Doubie to come up big.

Making my nearly-annual pilgrimage to see the Sox in person tonight. When choosing the one game (arguable I can afford to go to even one game and only missing one bedtime with the kiddo), I chose the game I thought the Sox were most likely to win. Game 1: Lester vs. King Felix, no way. Game 2: Webster vs. Iwakuma, ewwww (missed a great game in retrospect). Game 3: Doubront vs. Harang, ah, okay, struggling righty (Sox better against righties, though Harang has been better recently) and the Mariners are a little worse against lefties and Doubront seems to have found it a little bit. Game 4: Dempster vs. TBA–probably Bonderman, eh, kind of a coin flip with the other game, and I prefer a night game for missing less time with the kid and the like (also I sunburn).

Anyway, maybe I’ll post a time or two at Safeco. Either way, comment away!

  • Good win!

    Picked the right game, D, I guess.

  • Lesteritis, i.e. the inability to put hitters away on a two-strike count. Dempster afflicted as well.

  • Full count, single, two runs. And all of this shit with two outs of course.

  • 62 pitches for Dempster after two!! 4-1 Mariners. Pathetic.

  • Two quick outs, then a walk, then a HBP. Dempster certainly not making it easy for himself.

    And now as I write a single makes it 5-1. Another two-out RBI.

  • Seems like the Mariners are winning the race to 11.

  • Might as well leave this game unthreaded and leave it here. Sorry about that. Work and stuuuuuff. Stupid Mariners. It’s cool; the Sox will beat the snot out of them later this month or early next month or whatever at Fenway.

  • Feeling more and more smug about my choice of game to attend. Which is not saying much good about today’s game.

  • After a 3-run inning, it’s 5-4 M’s. Sox aren’t done scoring, but I doubt the M’s are either.

  • M’s score another. Steven Wright going in with 1 out and 2 on…probably won’t end well. This situation or the final score.

  • Tied! Sox refuse to lay down, good stuff, even if the pitching in this series beyond Doubront has been…suspect.

  • Tied at 7 going to the bottom of the 9th. Ugh. At least all the relievers got a day off yesterday.

  • They take the lead in the 10th!

    Devine July 11, 2013, 7:37 pm
  • Nursing that single run lead to get Wright a MUCH deserved win today, hopefully. Need 3 outs before they get a run.

  • WIN! SERIES WIN AT SAFECO, HOLY FUCK! 4-3 on the west coast swing. Take one from Oakland (like tomorrow) and I’m a happy guy.
