The Stopper, Contd: A’s-Sox Gamer V

Josh Beckett looks to get the Sox back on track and pull them to 50 wins tonight against Dana Eveland and the Athletics. Eveland has a 7.40 ERA, meaning he will one-hit the Sox through 14 innings of a 0-0 tie, upon which the Sox will lose on an inside-the-park four-base error by Julio Lugo.

  • If only this team did better against the crap. The Sox chose a fine time to slump with the bats, pitch like shit, and get hurt. Such enjoyable baseball to watch.

  • Well, after 3 innings, so far, so good. But the last time I stopped watching a game because I felt like it was in the bag, it was the rain delay nightmare of Baltimore. So I’m not taking anything for granted here…

  • Steady so far, Beckett’s gotta get this guy in the 5th with 2 out, a man on 2nd, and a 3-run lead.
    Walks #9 dude, that’s bad.
    Offense hasn’t taken real advantage of some bases-loaded situations, but can’t complain too much so far.

  • 4-2. All with 2 out, 2 RISP now.

  • Beckett gets to 0-2 fast on Cabrera.
    Then gets him to ground to short. C’mon offense!

  • Hey, everyone.
    My dad is in recovery. Five bypasses. Sounds like he’ll be fine.
    Thanks very much for your good wishes. It really means a lot.
    Now let’s go, Bay! And Papi!

  • Great news, IBM. I wish him a speedy recovery!

    SF July 7, 2009, 8:54 pm
  • IBM that’s great, I hope your dad borrowed all the Sox’s good fortune tonight!

  • Glad to hear it, IBM.
    Giambi DP ends the 6th for the A’s!

  • Shoot, Drew K’s in a big spot (runners corners, 1 down). After Bates got that hard-earned walk, too. Can Pedey salvage it?

    Devine July 7, 2009, 9:24 pm
  • He can!
    Single to left and it’s 5-2.

    Devine July 7, 2009, 9:25 pm
  • Beckett (I believe correctly) pulled with 2 outs in the 7th with the leadoff man coming up. Okajima in. Hard-luck chopper (super-high bounce) that Beckett fielded and threw cleanly. Just stayed in the air too long.
    So it’s 2 on, 2 out, 3-run lead. Another big moment.

    Devine July 7, 2009, 9:38 pm
  • Gets the out. Cool.

    Devine July 7, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • Nice to see the win, but outstanding to hear your dad’s doing well, IBM!

  • EXTREMELY happy to come home to see a Beckett win and IBM’s dad doing well. Great night overall.
