With the Bruins and Blackhawks kicking off the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday night you might have forgotten there was a Red Sox game going on as well. Thanks to Alfredo Aceves’ six solid innings on the mound and a homer from Daniel Nava, the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1.

Gresh and Zolak have their weekly conversation with Sean McAdam and talk about the Red Sox and the Bruins. Among his Red Sox notes, McAdam says it’s doubtful Clay Buchholz will pitch this weekend in Baltimore.

This past Saturday Clay Buchholz left the game against the Los Angeles Angels with what the team called “neck tightness” and is set to miss his scheduled start on Friday. Thoughts were that the pitcher would work out this week and possibly be ready for a Sunday start against Baltimore, but that’s starting to look less likely.

“John Farrell was leaving a lot of room open for holding him back until Tuesday yesterday, acknowledged that he did feel some stiffness when he threw. Then went on to say we’re not taking any chances, we’re not rushing him, we do have the opportunity to pitch Lester on regular rest on Sunday. I mean everything points to them holding him back for the double header on Tuesday.”

Is this setback a cause for concern?
