Red Sox Vs. Indians Lineups: Clay Buchholz Tries Again

The Red Sox will take on the Indians in the second game of their four-game series, with Clay Buchholz still in search of even one decent outing. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST, with coverage by NESN and WEEi.

It's become all-too-familiar a scene: Clay Buchholz leaving the mound, head down, with a crooked yellow number on the board. His terrible pitching finally caught up the Red Sox for another loss in his last time out, though it took the Orioles until the seventeenth inning to finally do the Sox in. Now, one night after hitting Josh Beckett with seven runs in under three innings, the Indians seem an unlikely candidate to turn Buchholz' season around.

Meanwhile, in the lineup, Nick Punto will be playing. Generally speaking, that's not a good thing.
