Red Sox: Talk about a trip down memory lane that's a bit more bitter this time around. Buchholz watched John Lackey come within two outs of a no-hitter at Fenway Park on Tuesday, less than one year after Buchholz completed a no-no in his second career start. Buchholz showed innings where he looked strong, but fell victim to back-to-back two-run frames in the third and fourth in a 6-2 loss to the Angels. He'll look to earn his first win since May 2 against the Royals on the road. Buchholz is 0-4 in his last four decisions, including three losses in four starts since returning to the rotation in mid-July.

Royals: Meche picked up his third straight victory, all since the All-Star break, on Tuesday night at Oakland. He used an aggressive attack, working inside with his fastball and cutter, thus discouraging batters to sit on his effective breaking ball. He's gone seven innings in each of his last two wins with good economy, throwing 100 and 101 pitches with a total of just three walks. At Boston on May 20, Meche pitched well and held the Red Sox to two runs in seven innings, but he lost, 2-1. He's 4-2 against the Sox in his career.

I think that I will skip the time consuming breakdowns of pitchers and hitters for the games. To be honest with you, I feel a little behind and am tired of being called a mouth breathing racist bastard and since no one seems to really care but me about that stuff well, why post it here. However, if you want a good breakdown be sure and visit

♊ - Well, let's hope we get some funny hats too.
