Clay Buchholz vs. Lance Lynn

Jim Rogash

Sorry this is late - bit of trouble with the scheduled posts tool!

What a game last night. I covered all but the last 20 minutes for SB Nation's MLB twitter account (I had to leave), and missed all the fun stuff. For what it's worth, I agreed with the call - Craig would have scored without the trip, and that's the very nature of the rule. Plus, the throw to 3rd was horrible and Boston shouldn't be complaining about anything after that mistake.

Buchholz isn't healthy and has reportedly had horrible body language all week/shown no confidence, so there's that. It's going to be pretty tough for Boston to pull this one off if they don't win tonight, and they burned Felix Dubront last night in relief, so a lot is on Buchholz's shoulders.
