One more to go as the Sox look to salvage a split.
Jon Lester will try to put an end to his struggles with a much-needed strong start.
|2010 - Jon Lester||11-7||22||22||2||0||0||0||146.2||118||55||50||10||52||154||3.07||1.16|
The Yankees will send Phil Hughes to the mound in opposition. Hughes will try to build on a strong start to August after a difficult July.
|2010 - Phil Hughes||13-4||20||20||0||0||0||0||122.2||113||55||54||16||36||107||3.96||1.21|

They finally moved mister oh-fer from the top! And no Kevin Cash!
Man, if you switched Hall for Lowrie, it'd be perfect. But can't have Lowrie play in back-to-back games.
