Tonight at 7, Clay Buchholz takes the mound for the Red Sox against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Southern California, and Orange County.
The game is being televised on ESPN2 nationally, in addition to NESN.
Over on ESPN, Sports Illustrated cover girl Mo'ne Davis and her Little League teammates from Philadelphia face the sluggers from Mountain Ridge in Las Vegas starting at 7:30 in Williamsport, Pa.
Davis has had a much better 2014 than Buchholz. He's 5-7 with a 5.93 ERA but has managed back-to-back non-horrible starts. Earlier Wednesday, Buchholz discussed his nasty habit of chewing tobacco following Curt Schilling's admission that 30-plus years of chew led to his current bout with cancer.
As far as we know, Davis doesn't chew tobacco. Tonight, she'll be facing a team that has won its two Little League World Series games by a combined score of 25-4. Neither of its games has gone six innings.
Seems like a long night for the clicker.
