Boston Walks (and Walks...) Past Sox

April 16 vs. Boston


Daily Sox Crop Report:
Rotten tomatoes? bumper crop?
Buying Adrien Nieto as a possible catcher for the future. He was 2-for-3 before being replaced by Tyler Flowers. Jose Abreu also made a nice diving play in the third inning and another in the 14th, showing he’s more than just a power hitter. Daniel Webb strikes out Jonny Gomes with two on and two outs in 13th. Infielder/outfielder Leury Garcia came in to pitch the 14th.

Short Take:   Despite John Danks’ solid performance, Sox lose 6-4 in 14 innings as Boston draws 15 walks. Sox bullpen gives up lead late…again! Boston wins despite having just six hits.

Totally Biased paragraph.  How depleted was the Sox’ bullpen by the end of Wednesday night/Thursday morning’s 6-4 loss in 14 innings to Boston? Depleted enough that infielder/outfielder Leury Garcia pitched the 14th and took the loss in the game that needed over five hours to complete. Boston broke the game open with two runs in the top of the 14th as Jackie Bradley Jr. doubled to right with two outs, giving the Red Sox a 6-4 lead against Garcia, who was making his first-ever MLB appearance on the mound. In the second game of the three-game series against ESPN’s second-favorite MLB team, the Sox allowed their guests to score once in the eighth and once in the ninth. The Sox’ bullpen walked Boston batters four times in the eighth and twice more in the ninth as Boston erased a two-run deficit. In the eighth, with the Sox up 3-1, Scott Downs walked David Ortiz, while Jake Petricka then walked Jonny Gomes. After Donnie Veal was brought in, Grady Sizemore’s fielder’s choice put runners on first and third. Boston catcher A.J. Pierzynski’s sac fly to center brought home Ortiz, making it 3-2. After Veal walked Daniel Nava, Maikel Cleto walked pinch-hitter Mike Carp, who had been down 1-2 in the count. The Sox avoided further damage as Jackie Bradley Jr. popped out to Alexei Ramirez to end the inning. In the ninth, Boston tied the game at 3-all as Dustin Pedroia opened the inning by walking and stealing second. Xander Bogaerts then drew Boston’s sixth walk in an inning-plus. Matt Lindstrom was brought in to face Ortiz. On the first pitch, Ortiz flew out to left. Gomes then reached on an infield single, filling the bases. Sizemore then delivered a sac fly to left, scoring Pedroia with the tying run. In the top of the 11th, Boston took a 4-3 lead as Gomes’ sac fly off Sox reliever Daniel Webb brought in Pedroia, who had walked, taken second on Bogaerts’ hit-by-pitch and advanced to third on Ortiz’s fielder’s choice. Our Sox tied the game at 4-all in the bottom of the 11th against Boston reliever Edward Mujica. After Jordan Danks walked and stole second, Alejandro DeAza struck out. Ramirez’s grounder to first moved Danks to third for the second out. Sox catcher Tyler Flowers then singled to center, plating Danks with the tying run. John Danks went six innings, allowing three hits and one earned run. He walked four and struck out three. Ronald Belisario pitched a scoreless seventh, dropping his ERA to 12.79. Matt Lindstrom was solid in his stint out of the bullpen, allowing one hit and walking none in his two innings. Daniel Webb showed some promise in the 13th as he retired Boegarts on a double play with runners on first and second and no outs. After an intentional walk to Ortiz, Webb retired Gomes, who looked at strike three. Ramirez hit his fifth home run of the season in the sixth inning, giving the Sox a 3-1 lead against Boston starter Clay Buchholz. For Ramirez, it tied him with Frank Thomas in recording a hit in 15 straight games to begin a season. font face="Arial">WSI's
The Futures Market:
 Nieto made a nice sliding catch while fielding a popped-up bunt in the fourth inning. He could develop into a solid catcher. For a Rule 5 pick, Nieto looked good for the most part. Webb pitched a scoreless 12th and 13th after allowing a run in the 11th. Abreu did not have a hit in his first five at-bats, dropping his average to .220.
