  • Yeah, the game went off as of that homer. I don’t care overly much if they can win tomorrow. I just don’t want this to be another “over .500, haha, just kidding!” tease.

  • This game was all Matusz. Very finely pitched by him, that breaking ball is deadly.

  • MOTHERFUCKER. Sox get the run back and Bard instantly gives the O’s the lead again on the Nick Fucking Johnson homer. Then plunks the next guy. Jesus H. Fuck.

  • Considering the way this morning’s game started, it’s kinda crazy that this game is still 2-2 after 5.

  • 5-2 Sox after top 6. Homers by Nava and Shoppach with 2 out (and a base hit by Podsednik indicating the end times are near).
    Surprised Bard only faced Jones in the 6th. I guess Valentine saw Bard was not that great today and with a day off tomorrow (finally, after 20 games in a row), he’s going for broke.

  • 5-4 after a walk and homer (Nick Johnson again) from Andrew Miller (who’s been really good in relief up till now, so I won’t mentally crush his windpipe just yet) with 2 out.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 2:53 pm
  • Okay seriously, a Podsednik HOMER (6-4 Sox) means the apocalypse is in the next couple minutes, right?

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:26 pm
  • Goddamn walk (Padilla/Markakis) with a 2-run lead to start off the bottom of the 8th.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:37 pm
  • Broken-bat double down the line in left. Bah. The tying run coming in feels inevitable…just hope it’s not the winning run too and that Ortiz is feeling good next inning.

  • Big first out on the K to Davis.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:41 pm
  • LIN MAKES THE CATCH! LIN MAKES THE CATCH!
    Wow. Run scores. 2 down, trying run at 2nd.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:43 pm
  • Aceves coming in for a 4-out save (again). He had yesterday off, I think, but worked the three games before that.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:44 pm
  • Nick Johnson of 2 homers and on 3 times will face Aceves.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:46 pm
  • Down 0-2 pretty quick (though Johnson fidgeting in and out of the box).
    Pitch 3…does not catch the inside corner as hoped for, the ball was half in the strike zone according to NESN’s ball-tracking machine.
    He strikes out swinging on a pitch up and in on the next one. Niiiice.

  • Sox go in order. One-run lead for the Crimson Hose in the 9th.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 3:57 pm
  • 2-0 to Flaherty (of the .140-something average, ya kiddin’ me?).
    2-1 on a foul.
    2-2 on a “strike” up and away, but the ump has been doing that all game, so whatevs.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:01 pm
  • One bounce to Aceves. One down. Throw to first was, uh, a bit high.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:02 pm
  • Jays/Rays tied at 4 going into the 9th.
    Wieters hits for Exposito. Foul, strike 1.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:03 pm
  • Dribbler down the liiiine…rolls foul, shoot.
    Still, 0-2. Ace talks shop with Shop, soon after delivers. Foul again.
    Nubber in front of the plate, slightly toward first. Shoppach clears the runner and throws Wieters out.
    One…more…

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:05 pm
  • Ball 1 up and away.
    Foul, strike 1.
    Just inside at the knees, 2-1.
    Changeup (I think) generates a swing and a miss, 2-2.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:07 pm
  • Foul.
    Slow, slow roller to 2nd, Pedroia grabs it and has to throw very hard to get the runner, but does!
    .500 (third time’s the charm to get over the hump?, Lester vs. Price Friday, hot) and an off-day coming on a series win over the first-place team. Good stuff. Rooting for the Jays elsewhere (though they are the best team in the division by run differential as of yesterday, I think), but they did not score in the top 9 and TB is swinging now.

  • That was dominance of a different variety, all 3 outs were on weak contact in the 9th, on the ground in the infield.

    Devine May 23, 2012, 4:12 pm
  • Sorry I didn’t have a gamer up, Devine. Good results though.

    attackgerbil May 23, 2012, 4:28 pm
  • Never a problem, gerb.
    Pena out at the plate in the bottom of the 9th for out #3 is goooooood shit.
    1 down for the Jays. Encarnacion batting.
