Try It Again: Rays-Sox Gamer XVI

The Sox and Rays go for it again. And because hope never dies, it's worth mentioning the Sox have an opportunity to gain a game on the Yankees today. Josh Beckett looks to get back on track against Wade Davis, making his second Major League start after a sterling debut. Comment away!

  • It’s in delay…radar doesn’t look good.

  • Tripleheader tomorrow?!

    sam-YF September 12, 2009, 7:33 pm
  • Game’s underway. One inning, no homers or runs allowed for Beckett, and he needs only 7 pitches. Keep it up, Josh!

  • Beckett would seem to be over whatever it was that’s been making him suck.

  • Sox wasting no time in the third, three of first four batters with hits, 1-0, 1 out.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:08 pm
  • Bot 5 at Tex: Sea 5, Tex 3

  • First big Vic, then youkilis w/ RBI singles, 2-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:10 pm
  • Ortiz RBI single, 3-0.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:11 pm
  • Bay walks on 4 pitches, bases loaded, 1 out, Drew up

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:14 pm
  • Yooks scores on WP, 4-0; Ortiz, Bay advance

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:15 pm
  • Drew IBB; Tek pops out on the first pitch; AGon bats for the second time in the inning, bases still loaded.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • Varitek is the Sox’ most maddening hitter. The Sox are destroying Davis, he has no command at all, and Tek swings at the first pitch and pops out. Good grief.
    GONZO!!! Three-run double!!!!

    Paul SF September 12, 2009, 10:18 pm
  • This is great right here, absolutely great.

    Devine September 12, 2009, 10:19 pm
  • AGON!!!
    Three-run double! 7-0.
    Joe C says the TB CF gave up on it, it was catchable.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:19 pm
  • I’d be concerned that they get through the top of the 5th, but most of the concern has otherwise evaporated with A-Gon’s bases-clearing double.

    Devine September 12, 2009, 10:20 pm
  • Who is this Alex Gonzalez? and what have they done with the real one?

    rootbeerfloat September 12, 2009, 10:20 pm
  • Remember when we were afraid of playing the Rays? That was an interesting 12 months.

    Paul SF September 12, 2009, 10:20 pm
  • Ells! 8-0!

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:23 pm
  • SB No. 61 for Ells!

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:23 pm
    (and you’re probably more likely to be out)

    Devine September 12, 2009, 10:25 pm
  • Beckett w/ an 8-0 lead.
    Even Smoltz couldn’t blow this.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:26 pm
  • V-Mart K’s on 3 pitches…just move the game along, it’s coming down a bit harder they say.

    Devine September 12, 2009, 10:32 pm
  • Yooks kisses Lansdowne Street! 9-0!

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:33 pm
  • Three more outs to get for the officiality to be complete.

    Devine September 12, 2009, 10:36 pm
  • Looks like heavy rain isn’t far.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:38 pm
  • I have to figure that if the rain gets heavy, they’ll call it a game before they delay it again.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:39 pm
  • Tampa’s making a bee-line for .500.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:40 pm
  • Sea 7, Tex 3

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:41 pm
  • Come on. We need a DP.
    Here. Now.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:45 pm
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaand we have an official game.
    Do the Sox bat in the 5th?

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 10:51 pm
  • Wow – TB is on the express train to nowhere. And looks like the Sox have all but clinched the wc. Still curious to see if Texas can make a run at LAA given the latter’s tough schedule, but if tonight indicates that Beckett is back in form and if Dice-K returns strong next week then the Sox – notwithstanding the hand-wringing they’ve caused some of their fanbase lately – would be in nice shape heading into October.

    IronHorse September 12, 2009, 10:59 pm
  • Game finally halted in the top of the 6th. We’ll see if they call it. Lots of rain still out there.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 11:00 pm
  • One would think, IH, but that’s a lot of ‘ifs.’

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 11:01 pm
  • Cue the Milli Vanilli

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 11:02 pm
  • Be a great night to call a game, give the BP one more day of rest before a doubleheader.
    Tomorrow’s supposed to be a pretty nice day, says

    Devine September 12, 2009, 11:14 pm
  • Texas down 8-3 after 8. Ichiro 2 hits shy of his record ninth consecutive 200-hit season. He’ll bat once more (barring an offensive explosion).

    Devine September 12, 2009, 11:17 pm
  • also says it’s gonna be ugly the rest of the night, seems like. I’d be pretty surprised if they start again (or for long, anyway).

    Devine September 12, 2009, 11:21 pm
  • Rain delay in Arlington, 2 on, none out, score still 8-3.

    Devine September 12, 2009, 11:40 pm
  • Game called. Sox win, 9-1.

    I'mBillMcNeal September 12, 2009, 11:56 pm
  • Sox win the rain-shortened contest.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 12:05 am
  • Texas loses the rain-shortened contest. 3 up. 22 to play.
    Rays have lost 9 in a row. Let’s make this one go to 11.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 12:50 am
  • Clay is pitching a beauty and we have no gamer to celebrate it.
    Unfortunately the Sox’ B-offense has not been able to score against Garza either.

    pale blue eyes September 13, 2009, 1:19 pm
  • Ha ha ha, the one thing missing was beating Garza, and while a beatdown would have been nice, Pedroia hitting a tie-breaking 2-run homer to right (has he hit one that way in Fenway before?) in the 8th is pretty cool.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 2:33 pm
  • Joe C said it was his second opposite field homer, the other one was in Yankee Stadium.

    pale blue eyes September 13, 2009, 2:37 pm
  • Thanks, pbe. Opposite-field right-handed in YS is almost expected, amirite?
    Papelbon, make this easy, please.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 2:42 pm
  • Damn it, seeing-eye hit in the hole. Gonzalez shouldn’t even have bothered with the throw.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 2:46 pm
  • Uno mas.

    Devine September 13, 2009, 2:49 pm
  • 24 pitches for Papelbon, a few too many for my liking, but he gets it done.

    pale blue eyes September 13, 2009, 2:53 pm
  • All right! TB have lost 10 in a row, and that is great. Beat them one more time! (The season series would be tied…right?)

    Devine September 13, 2009, 2:53 pm
  • Also, Buchholz is awesome.
