Headed to Fenway tonight, hoping for better results than last time I was in this situation

I'm not afraid.
Just over 16 months ago a Boston team that had exceeded everybody's expectations was coming back home for Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead in the semi-final round of the playoffs.  I wrote that I hadn't been so excited to attend a sporting event in 4 years (since the Celtics title winning game vs the Lakers in '08).  Well, on that June evening at the Garden last year I watched LeBron and Miami crush the C's, and then go on to take Game 7 as well.

Tonight I'll be at Fenway with the Red Sox in the same situation, but I'd like to think the results will be different.  Clay Buchholz wasn't very good in Game 2, so I'm expecting a bounce back performance from him.  And Boston's league leading offense is averaging just 2.8 runs per game this series; I don't care If Scherzer is pitching, they're due.
