Egged On By The NOG, Sox Get Rubber Game

There they were, sitting right up front: Larry, Tom And John. After giving the team a pep talk in the clubhouse, the trio of Lucchino, Werner and Henry watched their $191 million minions beat the Orioles, 6-3. Clay Buchholz started out with a shaky couple of innings, but finished strong with eight innings of three-run ball. In the interim, his team first tied the game, then went ahead on a hit by Pedroia in the sixth. Additional offense from Adrian Gonzalez (2 RBIs) and Cody Ross (three hits) put the finishing touches on the victory. Maybe the NOG will spend more time watching baseball than foreign soccer from now on. Nah.
