Open Thread: 8/2/05 vs KC

We're going for a seven game winning streak, and we couldn't have picked better opponents to face tonight.

Tim Wakefield (9-9, 4.19 ERA) is matched up against the Royals Runelvys Hernández (8-9, 4.49) who has struggled this season.

Jose Cruz Jr. is in the lineup tonight, playing right field and batting 8th. Jon Papelbon was optioned down to Pawtucket to make room for Cruz.
