Andrew Miller gets his first start for the Sox, who host Wade LeBlanc and San Diego at Fenway tonight. Comment away.
LeBlanc in trouble here in the first. One down, sacks full.
Miller had a somewhat easy first.
Papi just missed a total hanger and he is mad.
Papi battling here.
11th pitch coming for Ortiz.
And a single. Awesome at-bat. 1-0 Sox.
Darnell McDonald then follows with a first pitch pop out. As good as Papi’s at bat was that one was awful.
How does a pitcher throw 40 pitches in the first inning and only give up one run?
Ask Darnell and Marco, who ruined that inning.
The Sox have pissed on all their chances, and now Miller pisses away his
lead to Orlando Hudson, a bad baseball player.
Seriously Theo, anyone has to be better than Mike Cameron. How long do we have to watch his sorry ass keep playing baseball? He is so done.
And the Monster just retained what otherwise would have been an Adrian homer. But its 4-3.
When are opposing pitchers realize that when JD is pitch hitting, just give him something to hit and he will take care of the rest with an out?
Some guy, Frieri, plunks Scutaro w/ bases loaded. 5-3. Tek up. 2 outs. All or nothing.
Must have hit a stray thread on scooter’s shirt on that one
Now that is how you hit a batter!
Frieri stays in, plunks, Tek. 6-3.
This is a bad line: BB, IBB (loads bases), HBP, HBP.
So did I hear Don correctly, veritek is 6th time with ABs with the bases loaded, that is an interesting stat
Jon Rish says Tek has never in his career swung at a 3-0 pitch.
Evan Scribner on to pitch, Reddick pinch-hitting for Cam.
2-run single for Reddick, 8-3, and the Sox bat around.
Sox bat around on 2 hits.
Ells up for the second time.
I’m sorry, if you bring a rubber chicken in a Sox shirt you shouldn’t get front row seats down by the traps…sorry inside note if you are watching NESN feed
Ells looping single; Pedey up with bases loaded again.
“Jon Rish says Tek has never in his career swung at a 3-0 pitch.”
That is an even more interesting stat about Tek
BB to Pedey, 9-3. That’s 6 runs on 2 hits in the inning.
Adrian with 2-run single. 11-3.
Seven runs in with 2 outs.
Can this team put an inning together or what….reaching blow out level
Albers all smiles cause he knows he is in line for the win
Al hits leaders:
1. AGon 104
2. Ellsbury 90
Poke check for a double for Youk
Youk flicks a curveball to left, two more score. 13-3. That’s a 10-run inning, nine with two outs.
Sox 6-12 w/ RISP
Per Gordon Edes, this is the 15th time this season the Sox have batted around.
Lucky number 7 – Don just mentioned Sox have scored 64 runs in the 7th
Bummer for Padres is that Luebke, the guy who pitched the best for them, will be the losing pitcher.
8th walk of the night for Red Sox batters.
Bases loaded again, 1 out in the 8th.
Per Pete Abes: Since 2-10 start, Sox are playing .700 ball if they win tonight.
14-5 is your final.
Let’s not ignore the fact that Miller’s start was actually pretty good.
Miller did give up 10 hits to the light hitting Padres
127 runs in last 16 games, very impressive
Breaking – Tito: Beckett to miss start because of stomach discomfort; Aceves to start instead on Tuesday.
Great, Beckett must have caught what Youk had the other night
Anyone that watched the game have any thoughts on Miller? I only saw bits and pieces on MLB Network. I still think this kid (long term) has a shot to be very, very good. Been a fan since college, too bad he plays for the enemy now.
