July 23rd In Red Sox Vs. Mariners History

All July 23rd games are from the same year as July 22nd games. So every one on this list (including one doubleheader) is the next game in the series from the July 22nd post. We're 3-3 on 7/23 vs. the M's, 1-1 at home.

1983 @ Sea: 5-0 L Seattle gets 5 early off Eck (2 unearned because of a Remy error) and Bob Stoddard two-hits the Sox.

1994 Sea: 6-5 W Mo Vaughn doubles twice and Damon Berryhill homers in Boston's 6-5 win in game one. Joe Hesketh wins it, and Goose Gossage makes his 7th-to-last major league appearance in the 8th. A-Rod makes his 10th major league appearance, batting 9th (and making a big error in game two). So the Gossage/A-Rod dynam-dick duo has been playing non-stop since April 1972. (Except that Goose pitched in Japan in 1990.) (Man, imagine a day with Piniella, Goose, Tino, Luis Sojo, and A-Rod all in uniform for the opposing team at Fenway? Yikes.)

1994 Sea: 6-3 L In game 2, after two hours of rain delays, the Sox let Seattle tie it late, then gave up 3 in the 11th for a split on a long, hot, soggy day at Fenway. This series was supposed to be played in Seattle, but tiles had just fallen off the Kingdome's ceiling, causing the series to move to Fenway. All seats were $10 and you could sit where you wanted. And Ken Kaiser misses the doubleheader after being involved in a car accident in Boston the day before.

2006 @Sea: 9-8 L M's go up 3-0. Sox tie it. M's go up 5-3. Sox take 7-5 lead. M's go up 8-7 on Beltre's inside-the-park homer (the first one hit at Safeco) in the 8th. With two outs in the ninth, Tek homers to tie it. Bottom 9, Richie Sexson hits walk-off dong off Timlin. The first three Boston pitchers in the game had appeared in 65 games between them. Timlin had appeared in 931.

2008 @Sea: 6-3 W Red Sox get 3 in the 12th on singles by Lowell and Casey to sweep a three-game series.

2010 @Sea: 2-1 W Bill Hall homered and, yeah it was kind of a boring game. But it was the one where Chone Figgins let a throw roll past him, and then the Mariners fought in the dugout.

Tonight we look to go above .500 all-time vs. Seattle in July 23rd games. I predict great things for Beckett tonight. Meaning a no-hitter. (Yanks down 4-2 in 8th right now. Please, Oakland. Please.)
