Watch out, because there is a battle of southpaws in Seattle. Jon Lester (5-0, 2.38 ERA) goes home to start for the Bo Sox. And for Seattle it's expensive lefty Jarrod Washburn (4-10, 4.41) who has obviously struggled this season.
It's a normal lineup. No David Ortiz at first and Manny Ramirez is back to left. Gabe Kapler gets the start in right field because A) it's a lefty and B) Trot Nixon is struggling very badly. So maybe he can get it all together with a nice Sunday off.
