The Red Sox will go with their right-handed lineup to take on southpaw Mark Buehrle Saturday afternoon as they look to build on their big Friday night win behind Jon Lester.

The good news is that they've got the perfect man to follow up Lester's act in Clay Buchholz. While Buchholz allowed four earned runs in six innings last time out--his worst performance of the year by far--he sharpened up significantly after the first inning, and will hopefully be able to carry that momentum into today's game. With the bullpen rested, and a struggling Mark Buehrle in opposition, the Red Sox should have a good chance of taking a win.
