Cora! Cora! Cora!
The story entering the game was a miss-match between Tavarez and Halladay, but Tavarez was as good as one could have hoped. He kept the Sox in the game until Manny finally awoke with a 2 run shot in the 8th. Timlin got the win, Pap the save. Papelbon may not be available tomorrow for the start of the Yankees series after pitching back to back 20+pitch days.
