Game 088 - Sox vs. Yankees (L 8-6)

Back from the All Star Break, the Sox attempt to extend their lead in the AL East tonight in a game against the New York Yankees. Bronson Arroyo, fresh from a solid musical performance last night at Avalon, tonight attempts to put in a solid pitching performance across the street at Fenway. He was apparently “visibly tired” near the end of his second set last night, so let’s hope he’s got some energy left for tonight’s game.

And if he can’t handle it, will we see the recently reactivated Schilling pitching in relief? Who knows?

It’s convincing time, says the Globe’s Eric Wilbur. We have a chance to put the Yanks 6.5 back this weekend. I don’t know if we can take all four but, whatever happens, this should be a good one.
