Not Drowning, Waving: O’s-Sox Gamer #2

Lackey gave up three in the top of the first.  Boston is batting now, facing Brian Matusz; Pedroia just brought in Ellsbury on a FC to get one back. The Sox are 4-14 in September after the day game. That’s a kind of brutally bad that is hard to fathom.

  • 4-3 Sox! And Lackey lets the first guy in the 2nd on. Jeez. Then the DP though.

  • And Lackey doesn’t give back the lead, fer sher.

  • 5-3, but Bogie misreads one in the LF corner and DMac is thrown out on the bases.

  • Bottom 3, it’s 9-5 Red Sox.
    Lackey is still pitching.
    I don’t think Showalter has given up on that wine from Maddon just yet.

  • Yes, the Red Sox are winning. But this game just sucks.

  • 11-5 Sox as Muddy Chicken singles to right and Big Papi legs out an infield single, to the right side no less.

  • Here’s your lines thru 3:
    Bal 3 0 2 – 5 6 1
    Bos 4 2 5 – 11 13 1
    Balt already on its 3rd pitcher. But Lackey still on the hill for Boston. Sox 8-13 w/ RISP.

  • Markakis w/ 10-pitch AB with 2 outs. 11-6.
    Lackey pushing 100 pitches.
    Curt Young just called me. I gotta go.

  • Lackey, mercifully, is sent to the bench.

    attackgerbil September 19, 2011, 9:24 pm
  • Lackey can’t make it through 5. This game is awful.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 19, 2011, 9:25 pm
  • The first 4 innings take about 2:15 to play.

  • Ellsbury with an inside-the-park HR. That’s exciting.

    attackgerbil September 19, 2011, 10:20 pm
  • INSIDE-THE-PARKER WOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • Has it been since Youk in ’07?

    Devine September 19, 2011, 10:21 pm
  • That’s what Edes said on Twitter.

  • Still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Been a long September, but this inning is promising as Gonzalez smacks it off the Monster near the line for a single and Scutaro heads to 3rd with nobody out.

    Devine September 19, 2011, 10:23 pm
  • Pedroia into right, 13-9. Keep it going.

    Devine September 19, 2011, 10:24 pm
  • Thanks for the info, gerb! Ah, the floodgates opened while I was putting the little man to bed. Good stuff.

    Devine September 19, 2011, 10:46 pm
  • Game over. wow. brutal to watch, but worth it to see Ellsbury’s round-tripper.

  • Since Aug. 27, the Red Sox have 8 games. In those 8 games, they scored 4 runs twice, 9 runs twice and double-digits the rest.
    With pitching like that, they will not make the playoffs.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 20, 2011, 8:09 am
  • The rotation the rest of the way might go something like this:
    Bedard (O’s)-Beckett (O’s)-off-Lester (@Yanks)-Lackey (@Yanks)-Bedard (@Yanks)-Beckett (@O’s)-Wake/Weiland/Doubront (@O’s)-Lester (if not clinched/still in the hunt)
    Legitimately good starting pitching in 6 of 9 games, if necessary…that’s assuming Bedard is feeling okay. It’s going to be stressful, but it could be worse. Just win tonight.

  • Prospective RS pitching from here on in + # of TBR/NYY matchups should assure Boston gets the WC. If TBR beats up on NYY n these next 3 games + NYY beats up on Boston later this week then – and I think only then – do things get really dicey for Boston.

    IronHorse (YF) September 20, 2011, 12:48 pm
  • Of course, if the TBR beat up on the NYY in these 3 games AND the RS do too, then things get dicey for NY too.

  • For the next three games, we’re all YFs. Go Sox & Yanks!

    Atheose - SF September 20, 2011, 1:53 pm
  • We’ll see if you back that up in the game threads Ath… ;)

  • We’re Yanks fans for the nonce, but, to quote Yizhak Rabin on shaking hands with Arafat
    “It isn’t easy………..”
