Red Sox in Game Notes 8/13

Tampa Bay at the Red Sox: Game 1

-Conan O’Brien in 1864 Baseball

-Tina Cervasio called in sick tonight.

-Coco is also out with a virus. He is getting further testing to make sure it’s nothing more serious.

-Coco and Tina both out with viruses… curious

-With Julio Lugo’s second hit in the third inning, he has 6 multi-hit games this month in 11 chances

-Hinske and Mirabelli still suck

-Big Papi after getting knocked down by Shields in the 6th inning preceded to due push-ups. He only did 2 but it looked like he could have given 2 more.

-Ortiz is back in his old batting stance and has been hitting the ball hard.

-Jon Lester’s start tomorrow will be his first start at Fenway since recovering from cancer

-Through 6 innings the Sox have only scored 1 run, another poor offensive performance. A 170 million dollar team and its Cora. Hinske, Mirabelli for 7,8,9. By the way Jermaine Dye since the All-Star Break has 12 homeruns, the Red Sox have 26.

-Tim Wakefield brought a no-hitter into the 7th inning before Carl Crawford broke it up with a single to right.

-In 1978 the Yankees were 7 1/2 games out at this time

-Eight strong from Wakefield. 100 pitches, 72% strikes, and no runs allowed. And I don’t believe Wakefield threw a fastball the entire game.

-From Wakefield’s knuckle ball to Papelbons 97mph heater, the Rays look bamboozaled

-Sox shut out the Tampa Bay Devils Rays on a 2 hitter.

-Even when the offense looks bad, the Red Sox pitching goes to show you they can still win even with out much offensive support.
