Buchholz faces the Yanks, who send Ivan Nova to spoil Boston’s party. Comment away.

Here we go boys…
I’m going to try and hold it together. Spare you guys the wrath.
What just happened.
I have never seen Ratatouille drop a pop up.
Clay chucks it to the screen…
Jeter strolls to 2nd.
All you have to do is throw a couple off speed pitches Clay.
ARod will K.
That was one hell of a wild pitch.
RBI single for ARod.
WTP for Cano.
ARod to 2nd.
Whew, good play by Repko. Looks like the wind is pretty strong.
Good baserunning by ARod.
Come on, Buchholz, keep them in this. 1-2 to Cano with A-Rod at 1st.
Wind played with ball to the wall, and A-Rod able to tag at 1st and go to 2nd on the flyout.
Textbook Tex group out.
Let’s see what CSN has today…
Sucks. But could be worse. Frick, Nova coming soon. (I think I’m about a minute behind watching on my PS3?)
Buchholz’ stuff looks pretty good. I wonder how long he can keep it up.
Fancy overhead grab Cano…
Think Nova got jobbed on the first called ball, but it doesn’t matter as Cano gets the out on the pop-up over his shoulder.
You just had to extend the inning…
WTP for YO ADRIAN!!!!!!
Man. That made me nervous.
I’m listening to some comedy so the game is muted so I thought that was gone.
1-0 after 1.
Solid first for CSN.
Close to scraping the wall, but not close enough. 1-0 Yanks End 1st.
If the deficit gets bigger than 3, it’s vidyagame time, watch on Gameday for Sox scoring opportunities, I’m just sayin’.
Swish goes over the MON-stah…
Wow, how did Swisher’s ball get out of there? The wind must be crazy strong, that looked/sounded like it would hit halfway up the wall.
Prescient comment from me right before the homer.
Et tu Chavez????
Another ball creeps out. Ugh.
Eh, make it if the deficit IS 3, how ’bouts?
The ageless one singles with 2 outs.
Another single by Grandy…
Rally? Dare I believe?
Getting slapped around right meow.
ARod kills it.
Never saw that before.
Obie, Castig says it’s a homer.
That’ll be a homer on review.
Leadoff double for Papi…
Yeah, video shows clearly over the wall.
Are those pads out of play?
Here we go.
Yar, krueg, above the red line.
Papi homer, 3-1.
The wheels are coming off.
Let’s string ’em together.
Would like to just scrape one more out right now, if they could grab it. Runner at 2nd, nobody out and all. Buchholz has to stop sucking is the main thing.
Saltalamacchia ain’t much of a ballplayer…has some power, but that’s the extent of his ability. In other news, the sky is blue. 2-2 pitch.
So Boggs didn’t show?
I didn’t care that Schilling skipped it, but Boggs shoulda been there.
Moves runner over anyway. One more to the right side, please?
Grounder and then a K for CSN…
One more dude.
Papi on 3rd.
Ross makes me yearn for Crawford…those 2 homers those back-to-back nights were pretty picturesque, though.
Strikes out, yep.
C’mon, rise above your talent level, scrub.
Cano beats out a pin balling infield leadoff single…
Tex’s Fenway dominance continues.
Raul raps into a DP.
The 2012 Rally Killing Yankees.
Clay gets out unscathed.
Can CSN follow suit?
DP (that’s “double play”) preserves the 2-run un-lead.
Aviles to Jeter, nuthin’ special, 1 down.
Sweeney doble. Right fielder, much?
CSN gets the popper from Ratatouille.
Meh fly to center Pedroia, 2 down.
If he’d been looking for that pitch on strike 1, it was poundable, but off-speed and fooled.
Pedro Martinez is in the Red Sox radio ooth.
God, I miss that guy.
He was the greatest.
SICK pitch to K Adrian.
Feck. Really nice pitch, dayumn.
Bucky allows another fucking home run to Chavez.
CHAZEZ X’s 2?????
Home run derby, buh-bye.
Muscle gets ROBBED.
Great running grab.
WOW! Repko can go get it.
THAT was a fucking INCREDIBLE catch with an awkward reach he had to make at the end. Buchholz getting pounded.
Jeter grounds out.
No more damage.
Typical Selig, Repko makes amazing catch, he mildly acknowledges it then says, “Well, anyway…”, goes back to mumbling about current wild-card scheme. A true baseball enthusiast would have gushed a little more.
NESN playing “The Boys are Back in Town” to end the half-inning after another frickin’ Yankee homer…whoever’s in charge of music has to be a Yankee fan.
Papi almost beats out an in filed single…
Youk grounds out to Jeter…
I’m really enjoying the game on mute.
To be honest, I just didn’t want to hear the Fenway faithful cheer. But now, it would be nice to hear the quiet. But I’m afraid if I turn the sound back on, it will jinx it.
4-1 after 4.
So far, so good.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another home off Bucky.
LAUCHES one out of Fenway.
That was a bomb.
Cano is struggling.
It makes sense though. I have him in fantasy.
Swish up meow…
Swish played perfectly up the middle.
CSN loves the leadoff doubles…
3 in a row now?
Stiff wind + Bucky’s grooved pitches = long day.
I just feel like there is a late-game Fenway comeback on the horizon.
Swish lost that one in the sun.
E9 = 5-2. Sun got to Swishy.
Sun has given a run to each team now.
Hit hard by Sweeney, Ibanez gets there, though.
Nice inning CSN.
5-2 after 5.
Bucky grooves another. 6-2.
Martin crushes it. Okay, videogames it is for a little bit now.
Muscle blasts on over the Monster.
Buck’s pitch count is into the 90s. It’s 6-2 in the 6th. Get him out of there and let’s see if we can come back abnd get a win for Vicente Padilla.
Another nasty K for CSN.
Papi finds a hole…
I doubt NESN is showing the same montages as YES.
Papi rips a single into the shift.
Youk beaned, tying run on deck. But Sox have been awful w/RISP today.
Sox 1-9 w/ RISP.
I mean, 1-10 after Salty GIDP.
Pen busy, but Buck is back on the mound.
How many homers this inning, Buck?
Atchison replaces Buck with one on.
Leadoff double for Swish…
Single for Raul…
1st and 3rd, no outs…
Got Chavez. 1 out.
I have no idea what happened there.
But I didn’t like it.
And then 3.
K’s Ratatouille. That was a good battle.
David is solid.
On to the 9th.
I called this comeback.
Mo does what Mo does.
ARod moves into 5th place on the HR list and Jeter moves ahead of Winfield on the list.
