Currently, after a much deserved Thursday night off and riding a 4 game winning streak, the Boston Red Sox head into their weekend series against the Yankees before the ever important All-Star Game.
Verified pitching ace and righty Clay Buchholz gets the ball in the Friday night opening game against the rival New York Yankees. He has been spectacular in his last six starts and shown that he is someone the Sox can count on to pitch in big games. Plainly and simply if he gets run support the team has an excellent chance to win games. Koji has been back in good form too anchoring a struggling bullpen to clamp down some much needed wins to keep the Red Sox alive in the Al East playoff Race.
