Chien-Ming Wang has pitched well in his two starts this season giving up only 2 earned runs over 13 innings pitched. The Yankees have been hit with the injury bug as Jorge Posada has a sore arm and Derek Jeter missed games due to strained left quad muscle. Jeter is expected back for the Boston series. But Wang has not faired well at Fenway as he has given up 21 earned runs over his last 28 1/3rd’s innings pitched against the Red Sox at Boston. Big Papi bats .462 and Manny Ramirez is 7 of 8 lifetime versus Wang. Young Clay Buccholz was roughed up by the Blue Jays in his first start giving up 3 earned runs, 6 hits and 2 walks over 5 innings in defeat. Bucholz was roughed up in the spring sporting an ERA of 10.03 in 4 starts. Buccholz is feeling the pressure as Bartolo Colon is sitting the minors as a possible replacement for him should he continue to falter as a starter. Francona will have a quick hook here. The Red Sox pen has not been good this young season. Play OVER 9 ½ runs.
