  • Papi fouls one off his foot in the second. I was hoping for an Al Cervik moment.
    “Ooooh, my foot.”

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 7:37 pm
  • Lester w/ 7 Ks through 4.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • Byrd goes down swinging for second out of the 5th, 8 Ks.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Brandon Boggs goes down swinging, 9 Ks for Lester through 5.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:11 pm
  • Lester only needs 12 Ks in the last four innings to break the ML record for Ks in a 9-inning game.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:14 pm
  • Petey singles home Green, 2-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:18 pm

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • New Hampshire.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • Naked Horseman.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • That called strike to Papi looked a little outside on gamecast

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • Papi!!

    rootbeerfloat June 6, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • IBM – should be more like Pablo Garcia!

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • DAVID ORTIZ!
    Home Run No. 2, around the Pesky Pole!
    5-0!

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • oh my gawd….Papi homers

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 8:42 pm
  • And he is now 2-2 on the night

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Turning point!

    rootbeerfloat June 6, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Lester’s thrown 61 pitches.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • Gameday has Lowell’s homer to deep right center.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:43 pm
  • His BA is approaching the Mendoza line in the good way…

    rootbeerfloat June 6, 2009, 8:44 pm
  • Or we could be saying Night Historical…Stop the presses…Papi Jacks one!!!

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 8:44 pm
  • Maybe the trip to the Eye Doc did some good

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 8:45 pm
  • Following on MLB Game Day – wife is surfing through MLB TV, ESPN, etc to make sure any Sox updates during this “Night Historical of Pablo Garcia”!!

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 8:48 pm
  • Benson is getting slapped around out there

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 8:51 pm
  • OK – come on Sox, just be swinging at pitches to get the home half of the inning over and get Jon “Pablo Garcia” Lester back out there.

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 8:53 pm
  • Two-run single for Yooks! So much for Benson’s comeback.
    Bills, check the Globe’s notes. Tito said that Papi was going to see the obstetrician, then corrected himself.

    Thanks for the correction, courtesy of Peter Gammons.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:54 pm
  • 8-0 now on Youk’s single

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 8:54 pm
  • Wrong night to have “alternative plans”!
    BillsBurg — I keep thinking the same thing. At some point the Sox hitters must be thinking, “We better stop piling it on before our guy gets cold on the bench.”

    Hudson June 6, 2009, 8:57 pm
  • There it goes. Michael Young sends Peter Gammons home from New Hampshire.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • Sh-t. Michael Young broke it up with a double.

    Hudson June 6, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • that’s a shame.

    rootbeerfloat June 6, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • That’s the third time this year we’ve taken one into the 7th.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • BALLS! – Though if Lester and Beckett can throw like they have been in their last starts going forward I think we will be alright.

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • crap

    Rob SF June 6, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • And that was Lester’s 70th pitch.
    Amazing.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:00 pm
  • And a walk to Jones

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:01 pm
  • Still, this game is Gagne-proof.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:01 pm
  • Lester needs to throw no hitters because he sometimes struggles out of the stretch.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:03 pm
  • Tonight is New Hampshire Day at Fenway.
    Wow. If you believe in omens.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:04 pm
  • 8 runs and 5 LOBs.
    It’s a banner day for the offense.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • Papi Ks, his first of the game, and he misses a chance to raise his BA to .200.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:11 pm
  • First place!

    Hudson June 6, 2009, 9:40 pm
  • No perfect game or no hitter but a very fine outing by Lester.

    BillsBurgSF June 6, 2009, 9:49 pm
  • A couple of thoughts:
    1. Lester pointed out on the post-game show that his last two opponents, Toronto and Texas, are very aggressive, which says something about his recent success.
    2. He also gave a lot of credit to Tek, who has caught four no-hitters. And I wonder, including the four no-nos (Nomo, Lowe, Buccholz, Lester), how many times has Tek taken a no-hitter into the 7th? He’s done it twice this year already.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 9:59 pm
  • Lester’s ERA dropped 0.56, to 5.09 tonight. He started the night at 5.65.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 6, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • Rotation pulling it together…
