Game 59: House in Our House 


I'm thinking we should get to Peavy sooner or later, so it's up to TJ to hold down the fort so we can set up Kluber for tomorrow.  Five in a row would be a sweet start to what shapes up to be a challenging month.  If we can end the month about where we are--two to three games out of both wildcards and no more than five to six out of first--then I think we'll be positioned for a dog-days run.  One of the keys, however, is Terry starting to trust someone else in the pen because we can't keep running the same guys out there every night.

Sawx

Holt 1B
Bogaerts 3B (he's going to be an offensive monster)
Pedroia 2B
Ortiz DH
Gomes LF
Pierzynski C
Hassan RF
Bradley Jr CF
Herrera SS

Jake (don't call me Progressive) Peavy

Good guys

Bourn CF
Cabrera SS
Brantley LF
Kipnis 2B
Chisenhall 1B
Raburn DH
Murphy RF
Gomes C
Aviles 3B

TJ House (it stands for "Tommy John" the pitcher, not the surgery)

Let's go get 'em again and make the Bostonian blubber.

Surprised to see that the Tribe lineup tonight is collectively .229/.257/.469/.726 lifetime vs. Peavy, so maybe it won't be as easy as I thought it might be to get to him. I wondered why Raburn tonight, but he does have a couple of dingers off of Jake in 13 plate appearances.

Yeah, it drives me nuts how horrible the Indians fare against Peavy.  Sigh.
Well, we all know Giambi can't play 2 games in a row, so the choices were Raburn or Kottaras?

Peavy's career OPS against is .678.
Last year his OPS against was .697.
Two years ago his OPS against was .671
3 years ago his OPS against was .701

This year his OPS against is .802

So the Indians hitters have done a little better than what the rest of the league has done against Peavy lately (not including this season).

3 runs in the 1st was nice.  But we let Peavy off the hook still.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


Sigh...Boegaerts with another HR.  And then House gives up an 0-2 single to Pedroia.  Come on guys, I know his PC is a little high, but you gotta make Pedroia chase if anything!
I know that Boegaerts showed more promise in the minors, but man, if Lindor turns out to put up 80% of the numbers that Boegaerts has done so far, you really have to be excited about the Indians future.
House gives up another hit by Gomes after getting Ortiz on a soft liner, Gomes hit was supposedly on a pitch with a nasty factor of 100. ohlord
Come on House...whew...barely gets out of it with Bourn catching a drive on the track in RC.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


Brantley runs the count to 3-1 but then pulls an outside fastball for an easy GO to 1B.  Not exactly a great AB result, would have rather Brantley taking that pitch the other way, or take it if he was looking for a pitch middle-in.ohlord

Kipnis Ks on a changeup in the dirt.

The umpire today seems to have a similar zone as yesterday, giving the corners to the pitcher.
Chisenhall squares up a hanging changeup but gets under it and hits it to the wrong part of the park, flying out to right before the track in CF.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


House bounces back against the bottom of the order,
Ks Hassan on three pitches.
GO by Bradley on three pitches
GO by Herrera on 4 pitches.  Used a 2-0 changeup to get back into the count after missing with two fastballs.  
He gave up a homer and the two singles in the 3rd on the fastball, while his three outs were on off-speed pitches.  It looks like he has more command of his off-speed stuff than his fastball.
Might have to just use the fastball as purely "show-me".
Make that ALL of the basehits he has given up have been on the fastball!

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


House gets two quick outs, but walks Pedroia on four straight with the obvious plan of going after Ortiz as the tying run at the plate. ohlord
Count runs full to Ortiz, Ortiz fouling off a good pitch, not a good sign, Ortiz able to toy with House until he gets one he can hammer.  Fouls off another, a lot harder....and another one....and another...thrown him everything, changeup, slider, fastball, slider...and finally a liner to CF ends the battle and the inning.  Fastball to the outer half of the plate but up.  Whew....I am kind of surprised that they didn't try to throw a fastball in on the hands to try to freeze Ortiz.  Everything was away.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


AViles hits a liner but it is tracked down in CF.
Bourn with a GO to 1B.
And ACab can't catch a break, hits one over the fence, but just foul.  Works count to 3-2 but then chases a curveball pretty much in the dirt. ohlord

I was thinking, is there any real reason why it would not be possible that Tomlin ends up having a Peavy post-SD career?  Gives up HRs, not too many walks and hits,has a good repertoire and doesn't throw hard.  If Peavy can do it, why not Tomlin?  I should say after 2010 career.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


Sigh, 4 pitch walk to Gomes.  And you know, I guess Francona doesn't read what he says because he has Scrabble warming up now.
Pier@#$@%^ is the tying run, I hate that guy, he always hits the Indians hard along with being a major douche.  Lines out to Bourn on a pitch low and out of the zone, House definitely made his sacrifices to the BABIP Gods before the game.  Lots of line-outs ending up as outs.
House having issues with the fastball, after getting ahead of Hassan 0-1, misses with two straight fastballs.  2-1 changeup misses making it 3-1, count goes full on a changeup!  Hassan then Ks on a slider.  Wow...talk about no confidence in the FB.
Francona brings in Scrabble to face Bradley.  Not exactly a power threat, not sure about this choice.  I would have had Axford warm, let House go after Bradley, if BRadley gets on, then bring in Axford to face the .200 hitting SS.

Oh well...I guess might as well keep over-working your bullpen, no harm there. ohlord  Scrabble hits Bradley. Sigh.  Scrabble gives up an RBI single to Herrera.  Yeah....three days work in a row is always a great idea.  Geezus, Francona never learns.  Isn't that exactly what happened last night when he brought in Shaw?!bangheadbanghead
Holt foul tips a 2-2 slider. #$@%@!# watch him get a base hit now with a hanging slider.  Doesn't chase another slider, so now 3-2.  Sigh...whew...Holt goes the other way and hits a grounder to Aviles and Aviles doesn't boot the grounder or throw a ball away, .
Francona has to change, and change NOW.
Seriously, how is it a bad decision to go with House to face Bradley, who has a grand total of 1 HR and is hitting .203?  And again, why use Scrabble who has been used 2 days in a row earlier?  Outman had a day off yesterday.  Hagadone has not pitched...seriously this overuse is maddening.

Brantley gives it a ride to center, but not quite far enough.

Superb ten pitch at bat by Lonnie, ending with a single up the middle.

Unfortunately, it comes with two outs.

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


Brantley gives it a ride, but again, wrong part of the park, sends Bradley to the wall in LC.bangheadbanghead
Kipnis GO weakly to 2B.
Chisenhall battling.  8 pitches so far...9...and Chisenhall makes another withdrawl from the BABIP account with a bouncer up the middle on pitch 10.
Might be a waste, Raburn up. ohlord
Pathetic...weak GO to SS on the first pitch. bangheadbangheadbanghead

Re: Game 59: House in Our House 


I hope Atchison shows that his bad outing two outings ago was just a outlier because it can get ugly in a hurry with the 2-3-4 hitters coming up.
#$@%@ does not look good.  Leadoff double by Boegaerts. bangheadbangheadbanghead

Well, that BS was freaking fast.  First pitch RBI double by Pedroia.  Yeah, say good-bye to the losing streak.
ohlord

Yeah Francona, you want to bring in Shaw in a 3-0 game after going 2 days in a row and the bottom of the order coming up, and so now you are FORCED to go to Atchison with a 1 run lead with the heart of the order coming up.
Bullpen mismanagement 101.  Horrible job by Atchison too, although the Pedroia hit was a flare to the line.
And now Hagadone and Axford are warming up.  Wow....the irony is amazing.  No faith to bring them in with a 3-1 lead, now stuck with them in a tie game with two on.
Where is Outman?
Pier@#$@^% is up, he is due to break the Indians hearts at this point.
Ball 1 fastball inside, foul fastball away, swing and miss slider, Ball 2 fastball inside, foul slider up, swing and a miss slider in the dirt!
Now the RHH up...but facing LHP didn't help Hassan in three prior ABs, swing and a miss fastball up and in, fastball inside, slider inside,  fastball called strike, swing and miss fastball up!

Pitching duel as Detroit and Toronto go into the ninth scoreless...a combined five hits, no walks, and thirteen Ks.

KC on the bottom of a 7-6 score in the seventh vs StL.

They were down 4-0 at one point, getting to 7-6 is an accomplishment considering Busch must add a little extra or something for the pitchers that pitch for the Cardinals. tongue

Peavy at 99 pitches to start the seventh...walks Raburn.
