Mo and Pettitte’s Goodbye: Giants-Yanks/Jays-Sox Gamer III

This will be Pettitte’s final game at Yankee Stadium, and Mariano’s big ceremony is today too (though I still hope he pitches later this week when IH is in attendance). Godspeed, ya old goats, the thought of facing you was daunting all the way through your careers, which is truly impressive. Well-played. Meanwhile, the Sox look to rebound from a 2-run loss to the Jays after throwing the JV lineup out there (though really, that mostly meant the loss of Pedroia until he got into the game later anyway, along with Salty and Napoli getting a blow), and get back on track for the best AL record (up 1 in the loss column over Oakland, magic # still 6).

It’s alliterative paradise as Pettitte faces Petit (hee hee!) and Dickey takes on Doubront. Happy Sunday!

  • Not sure he could’ve gotten him but that was a terrible throw from Jackie Bradley Jr. Jays take the lead.

  • Wow, my MLB.tv crashes and I miss a three-run jack by Jackie Bradley. 4-1 American League East Division champions! (It sounds so good, I might repeat that on occasion.)

  • Papi clearly out at second, Sox catch a break.

  • Jeremy Kapstein in the booth says replay might make games longer. Longer than managers coming out to argue?

  • Blown call only costs Dickey a few extra pitches. Still 4-1.

  • Orioles trailing the Rays 1-0. Why can they beat us on a consistent basis and have nothing against the Rays?

  • Just got to watch Mo’s ceremony. Nothing but warmth and class. Even though I have been thinking about it for years, I just can’t believe his tenure is about to end.

  • Good to hear the ceremony went right.

  • David Ortiz now at 29 homers for the season. 5-2.

  • Pettitte finally allows a base runner in the top of the fifth, a walk to Sandoval.

  • Fantastic hustle double by Brendan Ryan. Love it.

  • Very good start by Doobie. Two runs, four hits, two walks through 7 on 97 pitches.

  • Cleveland up 7-2 against Houston. White Sox leading Tigers 6-1. Nice. Now if only the bloody Orioles could get something going against the bloody Rays.

  • 10 K’s for Dickey. And Napoli isn’t even playing …

  • It’s Koji time.

  • 9 pitches, 8 strikes, it’s over.

    Memo to the White Sox: Preserve the lead in Detroit!

    Memo to the Twins: You don’t want to lose another one in Oakland!

  • White Sox got the memo. Red Sox up 3 1/2 on Detroit.

  • After Pettitte gets chased and Robertson gives up a double to Abreu that scores a run for the Giants. Rivera comes in and stops the bleeding with strikeout and a bit of help from a nifty sliding catch by Granderson.

  • Two guys out at home in one inning for the Yankees?

    Cleveland has one, so have the Rays. Tribe needs to elimante them in the play-in.

    pale blue eyes September 22, 2013, 4:32 pm
  • Once more, more slowly: eliminate.

    Elimante sounds like a Cuban short stop that just defected.

    pale blue eyes September 22, 2013, 4:33 pm
  • Oh yeah, and of course Cleveland has won, not one.

  • typical yankees…just end the season already…

  • I need to throw my tv through something. Unfortunately, it’s slightly larger than the nearest window.

  • Bummer of a finish.

    attackgerbil September 22, 2013, 4:49 pm
  • Twins did not get the memo: Oakland leading 5-1 in the bottom of the 2nd. Coco Crisp with a three-run home run.
