The Red Sox are riding a one-game win streak. To make it two, the Sox will have to out-duel Jered Weaver and his 0.99 ERA. That means we’ll need a little help from the bats tonight. Just one timely hit would be good.

Clay Buchholz hasn’t pitched to his 2010 level, so tonight would be a good time to start. I’m feeling a tight game, meaning it might come down to a manager’s decision to grab a win. That’s good news for us, because Mike Scioscia isn’t even in the same discussion as Mr. Francona.

2-1 Red Sox sounds about right.
