  • Ellsbury drops a bunt single, gets in a pickle in a steal attempt, Howard throws it away and Ellsbury takes third. Speed kills, baby.
    But he can’t score on a shallow fly by Yooks.

  • Bay walks; runners on the corners for Lowell.

  • Loogie annointed today’s leadoff hitter, strikes out on five pitches.

    Lowell flies out to left. 2 LOBs for Dobbs.

  • Rocco hits a loner line drive to tie it, 1-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal June 14, 2009, 2:02 pm
  • Why can’t we edit these anymore?

    Rocco hits a long line drive to tie it, 1-1.

  • Nick Green homers off Illinois native J.A. Happ! 2-1!
    Back-to-back!

  • Rocco Baldelli and Nick Green go back to back? I’m gonna go ahead and say that won’t ever happen again.

  • It’s tough to complain any time you get HRs from Baldelli and Green, but the Sox have wasted a lot of scoring opportunities in this game.
    Happ should have been knocked out earlier and now he’s cruising. It’s annoying.

  • And now, of course, Beckett gets himself into trouble and gives up a run to Rollins…

  • Now a run to Victorino…

  • ok, how did Beckett lose a lead like that?

    rootbeerfloat June 14, 2009, 3:11 pm
  • And there goes the lead.

  • IBM – Did you leave it with beckett for safekeeping?

    rootbeerfloat June 14, 2009, 3:15 pm
  • OK, I’m sorry for the snide Beckett remark.

    rootbeerfloat June 14, 2009, 3:17 pm
  • BECKETT HOMERS!!!!

  • I love that Beckett gives up the lead, then gets back the tie. That’s so ultimate-awesome. Shame we don’t get to see this guy crack one out a few times a year. He should be a viable pinch-hitter if they’re just trying for a blas with 2 down in the 9th.

  • Ellsbury’s GIDP ruins the momentum and good will, however. Argh.

  • Beckett now through 6IP, though near 100 pitches. Does he go back out for the top of the order?

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 3:34 pm
  • Yeah, I didn’t think this was going to work out. Dammit.

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 3:46 pm
  • Ack.
    I’m going back to loading Miles Davis CDs onto my iTunes.

  • This team’s defense is just awful this year and today in particular has been a real anti-clinic in fielding. Yeesh.

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 3:58 pm
  • Y’had to figure they’d lose one here (and they haven’t lost it yet). 9-3 through 4 division leaders is pretty sweet.

    Devine June 14, 2009, 4:00 pm
  • I’m not counting them out yet, exactly. And winning the series is great, no matter what happens. But they really have had plenty of chances to win this game, with bat AND glove, and they have thrown them away. They really look like they need tomorrow off.

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 4:03 pm
  • OK, *now* I’m counting them out. Hate to see Bard walk the freaking pitcher.

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 4:06 pm
  • Well, okay, now they’ve lost it.

    Devine June 14, 2009, 4:14 pm
  • Well, that sucked. Especially on a day that the Yankees romp.
    Oh well, still two games up.

    stuck working June 14, 2009, 4:53 pm
  • Well that’s lame. I heard from my friend that Beckett homered, so I assumed we won. Very mistaken.
    And demoralized to see Bard give up so many runs. And there’s another off-day tomorrow, the third of four straight Mondays off.

  • They are really holding their own against the best teams in the league, which the Yankees definately cannot say (OWNED by Boston AND TB this year).
