Nick Blackburn is on the mound for the Twins, who face Boston's Josh Beckett at Fenway in the final game of a four-game series. Comment away.
Josh is having anofher quality start, just needs some more run support. Nice that tek got a double and scored. Gonzo came through again.
1-11 with RISP tonight. When is this going to turn around?
If you think umpires should be replaced with machines, example A would be the 0-2 pitch from Acees just now. Literally right down the middle and called a ball. Pathetic.
Tough AB by Kubel there. Great pitched game tonight.
Horrible call by West there. And Gardenhire gets tossed. Gardenhire may be my favorite opposing manager.
It always annoys me when a pitcher jumps off the mound and points frantically in the air like that after a fly ball to the outfield. Has any outfielder in history ever found a ball he was tracking in the sky thanks to the pitcher’s pointing? I think not.
Ouch. Not even going to say it. That was a brutal way to follow-up on the break that put Varitek on first.
I’m out. If the Sox pull this out, I don’t particularly want to see it. And if they don’t, I’m sure no sf will miss my commentary. Looking forward to the Yanks next 16-games-in16-nights stretch, which begins tomorrow! Night all.
That was ugly. I know tek wouldn’t have done that, lol. I’m ready for bed.
I’m with you iron horse, drives me nuts as well.
West missed stike three there to Hughes.
Two on, 1 out, Tolbert Ks.
Oki making us shade our eyes.
Ugly big Papi.
You suck, West. Terrible, an embarrassment.
Missed a DP chance, 1st and 3rd, 2 outs, top 11th.
Oki gets out of it, for the second straight inning.
Carl drives in Iglesias from first with wall ball. Joe C says its the Sox first win with fewer than 3 runs.
Good win. Carl with a nice drive through the wind. Worth staying up and enduring the frustration. Carl’s having a tidy little May so far.
But what’s up with Pedey? Holy slump.
Wish I had watched this. Maybe we can hit .500 tonight?
Hoey isn’t a very good pitcher, but that was a pretty good AB there by Crawford. Nothing epic, 7 pitches. But he fouled off a couple before he got the pitch he wanted.
