At Least the Pirates’ Fathers Had a Nice Day

June 17th at Pittsburgh Pirates

Back to the Grind,
or Just Grinded?


Today's Sox cut of meat:
Incinerated steak left too long on the grill
Sorry, Sox fan dads! You deserved better on your day.

Short Take: If this headline sounds familiar, it should. It’s a recycle of the Mother’s Day headline. I only had to change two words. Efficient or what?

I actually do score the games prior (if you’ll pardon the expression) to writing my TBGR. (Usually. This time I bailed after seven innings since it was a beautiful day, and I had HAD ENOUGH!!!) So I could give you the game play-by-play. But why bother doing a play-by-play, when a brief summary will suffice? Final score: Pittsburgh 8, Sox 7.

So, here comes the brief summary. Pirates led 1-0 after one. Top of two, Jermaine Dye led off with a double. However, Luis Terrero laid down the first of many really bad bunts, and JD was out at third. (I guess you’d call that a “reverse sacrifice.”) Terrero got balked to second, and was out going to third on a called third strike to Josh Fields in what was probably a busted hit and run, or else a really bad steal attempt by Terrero. Not sure which, but either way, pathetic. Anyway, we went a really weird three up-three down. Pirates scored two more in the bottom of the frame, aided by another pathetic defensive play. End of two: 3-0.

But in the top of the fourth, the Sox scored 5 runs. That gave us a 5-3 lead……which we turned right around and gave back in the bottom of the frame. End of four: tie game.

End of five: tie game; end of six: tie game. Unfortunately, in the bottom of the seventh, we had to go to our bullpen. And before you could say, “Oh, no! Not the bullpen!” it was 7-5 Pirates. Going into the top of the ninth, the Pirates once again tried to give the win back to us. We scored two. Unfortunately, the Pirates had scored one in the eighth, which meant we needed three to tie.

Bright side? At least we're done with these NL parks. Now let's DO SOMETHING against the Marlins and the Cubs, and say good-bye to the interleague play. It has not been good to us this year.

Back to the Grind Update:
Well, the Sox did grind out an inning-the fourth. They also sort of kinda tried to grind out a win in the ninth.
