  • Gotta figure Drew’s hurt, right?

    Devine August 1, 2009, 6:56 pm
  • As usual, Drew is being careful: http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/2009/08/drew_is_being_c.html
    It’s the kind of thing he gets slagged for sometimes doesn’t it doesn’t sound gritty, but I think it’s smart of him. I do hope he plays tomorrow, though.

  • Decent defense at 1B, V-Mart.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:28 pm
  • Beckett with a clean 1st.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:29 pm
  • What is with the Yankees and hosiery? If only the Rangers were the Rangersox, and the Mariners the Marinersox, they’d be in last place…

    SF August 1, 2009, 7:31 pm
  • That’s a crazy take-out slide attempt by Bay there. He should have been called for interference (not close to the bag) if Tek weren’t out anyway.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:33 pm
  • Woooooo, Reddick 2B!

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:34 pm
  • NESN says (I think) Ellsbury 7 steals from tying the Red Sox stolen base record, 8 from breaking…

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:37 pm
  • Wow, I was worried Varitek/Reddick/Lowrie/Ellsbury would be a total hole, but it turns out to only be a partial hole!

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • Hernandez walks Lowrie and Ellsbury on 9 pitches. Will Pedroia take advantage?

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:38 pm
  • Also, theeee Yankees lose, which they should every time they start Cody Ransom at 1B. Dumb.

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 7:39 pm
  • Damn tease. Almost had a hit on 2-2, out in front just a bit.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:41 pm
  • Well…at least he’s over 50 pitches. But that was a disappointment.

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 7:42 pm
  • Four LOB, one GIDP already. Bodes well for runs later in the game if they can keep getting guys on base, but come ON.

    SF August 1, 2009, 7:43 pm
  • Luke Scott now 8-for-14 lifetime off Beckett, but no matter as Mora chops to 3rd and we’re through 2.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 7:52 pm
  • 73 pitches, but still only 1 run. Shite, hopefully he’ll be out after the 5th or so: the Orioles bullpen kinda stinks, especially with Sherrill (sp?) gone.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:02 pm
  • Through 3, 1-0 Boston. Martinez semi-muffed a couple plays there (missed a tough liner and didn’t catch the relay on a possible DP). A bit anxious? (Also a couple rough ABs.)

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:13 pm
  • Feh. I bet the O’s score in the bottom of the inning, too.

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 8:23 pm
  • 92 through 4 for Hernandez, still just the 1 run.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:23 pm
  • 7 LOB thru 4, with a DP. Same old shit, new lineup. Still thinking positive, the Sox are going to get at least 4, if not 4+ innings of the Orioles’ bullpen.

    SF August 1, 2009, 8:27 pm
  • Gameday showing Beckett getting squeezed, hard. If accurate, of course.

    SF August 1, 2009, 8:29 pm
  • There we go! Youk goes deep and it’s 2-0. Hernandez can’t be too much longer for this game.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:39 pm
  • And there he goes after Ortiz’s double.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:41 pm
  • Excited to see Reddick…

    SF August 1, 2009, 8:44 pm
  • Another bases-loaded tease! Well, the top of the order will be up next inning.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:52 pm
  • Is this more accurately described as RISP FAIL or as a LOBfest? I’m leaning toward the latter.

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 8:54 pm
  • Reddick f*ck-up turns double into triple with 2 out.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 8:58 pm
  • But Bay catches a Roberts drive to the track and the Orioles are still scoreless.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:02 pm
  • In wild card news, Seattle is up 4-0 in the 3rd over Texas with King Felix pitching in Arlington.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:04 pm
  • Pretty good bunt attempt by the Droid, barely out at 1st as Ellsbury moves up.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:06 pm
  • Whoa, almost caught Ellsbury leaning. Then he steals 3rd.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:07 pm
  • Martinez’s first Red Sox hit drives Ellsbury in. 3-0.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:09 pm
  • And breaks up the RISP fail, as it were.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:10 pm
  • Worried about Bay (is he hurt?), but glad Baldelli doubled (Martinez in, Ortiz to 3rd) for him.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:17 pm
  • Orsillo says Baldelli 4 for 9 as a pinch-hitter.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:18 pm
  • Pretty great stop by Martinez, but Beckett couldn’t cover in time with Jones running.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:22 pm
  • Hamstring cramp for bay, Heidi informs us.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:23 pm
  • DP keeps the shutout alive for Beckett (91 pitches) after 1st and 2nd, nobody out, 1st and 3rd, 1 out. 4-0 Sox after 6.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:28 pm
  • Reddick doubles to lead off, his second of the night.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:31 pm
  • Can’t score, though. Quick inning for Ray.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:35 pm
  • DP after 1st and 2nd, nobody out. Phew. 1 more, Josh. Guessing this will be his last either way?

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:45 pm
  • Inning ovah.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • Martinez: solid contact, right to the RF.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 9:51 pm
  • Eff. 11-pitch AB Roberts vs. Oki ends in a single.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 10:06 pm
  • 1st and 2nd with nobody out for Baltimore turns again into no runs and a DP (this time involving a lineout).

    Devine August 1, 2009, 10:16 pm
  • 15 LOBs. Ack.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • Hilarious rundown, too bad it ended in an out for the Red Sox.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 10:24 pm
  • Tek was out 3-2-5-7-1.

    Bard to finish.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:26 pm
  • Wicked slider from Bard. 2 outs.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:28 pm
  • half a game back! Nice. Thank you, Daniel Bard.

    stuck working August 1, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • Our future closer with the 1-2-3 9th.
    .5 back in the East. Decent chance at 2.5 ahead in the wild card if Seattle can hold it up (Felix is in a bit of trouble with 2 on, 1 out in the 7th in a 6-2 game).

    Devine August 1, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • Bard Ks the side to end it.
    I loves me some Daniel Bard.
    Beckett wins his AL leading 13th.
    And the lead is one-half game.
    The Earth is almost back on its correct axis.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Felix likely done after 7, still 6-2 Seattle.

    Devine August 1, 2009, 10:35 pm
  • Screw the wildcard race. We want the AL East.

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Reddick does the postgame interview on the radio. Sounds like a real level-headed, likeable kid. Is he now tagged as the RF of the future when Drew’s contract runs out?

    I'mBillMcNeal August 1, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Screw the wildcard race. We want the AL East.
    Of course! But any way into October is a good way, and remember…the Yankees are only 3 up on the wild card if Seattle wins…
