Koji Uehara does not seem the least bit intimidated by cozy Fenway Park. He gave up a run on the second inning, but it was on a soft fly ball by Mike Lowell that found some empty outfield between Nick Markakis, Felix Pie and Brian Roberts. Otherwise, he would be through three scoreless innings.
Down on the farm: Left-hander Brian Matusz is making his home debut at Frederick this afternoon and it's not going great so far. He gave up three runs in the first and had to work out of a two-on, two-out jam in the second. The Salem Red Sox lead, 3-2, in the bottom of the second.
