Game Thirteen: Feeling Pretty Keen

In Boston for the Patriots' Day Matinee, the Red Sox climbed all over the Orioles, winning a 12-1 runaway. Justin Masterson pitched 5 fine innings, then handed off to MDC, Okey Doke, the Other Javy, and new guy Hunter Jones to finish up. On the striking side of the ledger, David Ortiz had a double and a triple, while Jason Varitek had a home run. Ellsbury, Pedroia, and Ortiz were 9 for 16 combined. The unusually named Radhames Liz of Baltimore took his lumps, allowing 6 runs on 28 pitches while only getting one out. Boston is now 7-6 , riding a 5 game winning streak.

The Minnesota Twins visit Fenway tomorrow for a weird two game set, followed by the first visit of the Evil Empire over the weekend.


  1. The strange part is not Mr. Liz's name, but why in the H-E-double hockey sticks would the O's let him face the Red Sox. In 3 previous appearances, all starts, Liz had tossed 8.2 innings, giving up 19 runs, all earned, on 19 hits, 9 walks and 2 hit batsmen for a glorious 19.73 ERA. Add today's lovely outing, he now has a 25.00 ERA against the Red Sox, giving up 22 hits, 10 walks and 4 hit batsmen in 9 innings. Yikes!

  2. Maybe somebody in the front office had him in a Bizarro World Fantasy League?
