P.S. Red Sox down 8-4 to the pin-stripers. It doesn't look good for win # 2. Clay Buchholz was uncharacteristically shaky, much like Lackey. We need a solid number three starter as well as numbers two and four. Lackey, Buchholz and Beckett, STEP UP. Please. I didn't even mention Daisuke, did I? I can wait for that. After 6 frames, 8-4 Yankees.
