Liveblog: Red Sox @ Twins/June 13

I decided I’m going to make an attempt at liveblogging tonights game. Tonight is going to be a great pitching matchup, Curt Schilling vs. Johan Santana . Mike Timlin will be making his return from the Disabled List today, and should be making an appearance in the 8th inning.

8:12: Coco strikes out. Not a good way to start the night.

8:14: Santana gets guys behind in the count fast, the Sox are going to have try to work him deep in the count somehow.

8:15: Loretta strikes out too, I’m starting to think go first pitch swinging.

8:16: Not good. Strikes out the side

Sorry about the huge delay but I had computer trouble.

8:57:1000th career strikeout for Santana on Ortiz. Eight so far for him.

8:58: Manny swings and misses to start his at-bat,gets himself in a hole like so many of his teammates.

8:59: Manny pops up.Can’t get the offense started.

9:00 0-2 on the Captain but he grounds out.

9:00: Schilling and Tom Glavine of the Mets are both trying for their 10th wins today.

9:03: Schilling gets the first guy out.

9:06: Glavine has a no-decision. Curt could definitely use some hits.

9:08: 1-2-3 inning for Curt.

9:10: 55 pitches to this point for Santana.

9:12: 10 Strikeouts already. An amazing pitching performance.

9:16: he struck out the side again.

9:17: this is an incredible pitching duel.

9:18: Just great the Yankees are winning their game.

9:22: Hunter steals.

9:24: Strike him out- throw him out by Varitek. How about a hit him out now?

9:26: 0-2 to Alex Gonzalez. He makes it 12 strikeouts

9:29: Two of them made contact at least,could be worse.

9:33: Schilling doesn’t need much more for 3000 innings.

9:37: One down in the seventh.

9:41: Second strikeout for Manny.

9:41: THANK YOU VARITEK!

9:47: Schilling’s fifth strikeout.

9: 50: This is going to be a long game

9:53: 19 strikeouts between these two pitchers.

9:58: Yankees won, the Red Sox need to start swinging.

10:00: Nixon and Gonzalez are having a relatively good game.

10:02: Both teams have been even throughout this one.

10:14: Lead runner on in Loretta. He has a four game hit streak.

10:41: And we’re in extra innings, Santana and Schilling pitched phenomenal games which they gave up to their closers.

10:42: Gonzalez 3-4 tonight.

10:21: Manny’s fighting in this one.

10:24: Not a good game for him.

10:29: Bad situation to be in.

10:30: Good play by Youkilis, clears the baserunner.

10:41: And we’re in extra innings, the rest of this liveblog will be brought in a summary tommorow. Thanks for reading this if you did. Now that I got the first out of the way the rest should be better!

    Can we send Tavarez somewhere? Soon?? This is about the fifth game he has entered, generally within a run or two, where he has managed to ensure a loss. And this time he was two outs away from a save, after a very hard fought pitching string from three others… Time to dump his aging butt

    I’ll finish the blog:

    Approx. 11 AM: Jason Kubel grand slam. Jason who? Wow. Twins win.

    How about another one:

    Approx. 8:30 PM 6/14/06: Justin Morneau grand slam. Sox down 8-1. No chance at coming back. Sox have walked 10 Twins. Wow. Twins win again.

    Thanks for visiting Red Sox. Come again.
