Game over: Blue 1, Red Sox 0: Not much offense in this one. Workman retired the side in order. Interesting that Doubront pitched and Thornton did not. Perhaps Felix will sneak onto the postseason roster after all.
Middle of the 6th: Blue 1, Red 0: Doubront with two strikeouts and a perfect inning. Perhaps he has a chance to make the roster after all.
Workman now in for the final half inning.
Top of the 6th: Blue 1, Red 0: Franklin Morales retired the three batters he faced in order, striking out Lavarnway and Pedroia. Doubront now pitching.
Middle of the 5th: Blue 1, Red 0: Uehara allowed a one-out single by Bradley then got Ellsbury to bounce into a double play smartly turned by Pedroia and Drew,
Top of the 5th: Blue 1, Red 0: Craig Breslow reached his pitch count and the inning ended after two outs and two walks. David Ross, a future manager, came out of the dugout to visit the mound at one point.
Koji Uehara pitching now.
Middle if the 4th: Blue 1, Red 0: 1-2-3 inning for Ryan Dempster, who relieved Peavy.
Top of the 4th: Blue 1, Red 0: Lackey replaced Buchholz and retired the side in order. Berry made a diving catch in right to steal a double from Pedroia.
Peavy’s line: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K.
Middle of the 3rd: Blue 1, Red 0: Buchholz went a third inning and allowed a double by Ellsbury before getting Gomes to pop to right and Salty on a grounder to second. His line: 3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K.
Top of the 3rd: Blue 1, Red 0: Peavy allowed one-out singles by Nava and Drew before striking out Middlebrooks and getting Berry to ground to second.
Middle of the 2nd: Blue 1, Red 0: Buchholz retired the side in order. Ross grounded to third, Bogaerts struck out and Snyder grounded to third.
Top of the 2nd: Blue 1, Red 0: Peavy struck out Victorino, Pedroia and Ortiz. They actually shifted on Ortiz.
Middle of the 1st: Blue 1, Red 0: The lineups are a bit jumbled, so bear with us.
Anyway, Bradley singled off Buchholz before Ellsbury bunted him to second. Gomes struck out but Salty ripped a double to right. That Salty, he even doubles in intrasquad games. Carp then lined to left.
Dick Flavin is on the PA at Fenway. There are two umpires, the scoreboard is working and there’s music. Fun to be here for something like this. If you’re in the Back Bay, walk on over.
It’s a beautiful day in Boston and it looks like a few thousand fans are here.
