Another game against the worst team in the majors. Can it get any better than this? We really need to sweep this series, and I think everyone will be disapointed if we can't.

Matt Clement (11-3, 4.38 ERA) is slowly lowering his ERA again and hopefully will take a huge chunk out of it tonight against the Royals. DJ Carrasco (5-7, 4.89) heads to the hill for Kansas City tonight. We faced him on August 4th and he only went 3.2 innings, giving up five runs, but only one earned. He also threw a season high seven walks.

No surprises in the lineup tonight:

J. Damon cf
E. Renteria ss
D. Ortiz dh
M. Ramirez lf
T. Nixon rf
J. Varitek c
K. Millar 1b
B. Mueller 3b
T. Graffanino 2b
