A great rookie matchup in Boston tonight. SweSox has a breakdown of Sowers. Lester is coming off his first major league loss July 28 against the Angels. Sowers last two starts: 18.0 IP, 9 hits, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts, 0 runs. It could be a very bad night at The Park.
Youkilis 1bI really like this lineup, minus the Mirabelli part but we can't do anything about that, can we? I like the combo of Lowell and Pena back to back. It gives the Sox a doubles hitter followed by a power-threat. Then again, Pena followed by Lowell may even be better.
