GameThread: Game 4 - Red Sox @ Angels

New, comments

Red Sox versus Angels. Game one in 2009 after an intense matchup in the 2008 playoffs. Do we have a better name for this game? Yup:

"New unis night!"

The Red Sox will debut their new (but old) road jerseys tonight. They're a nod back to the 80s, essentially. I think they're interesting. Marketing scheme? Yes, of course, but do we really care if it was or not?

But there is baseball tonight on the field. The Red Sox look to end a two-game losing skid while the Angels are still recovering after the news of pitcher Nick Adenhart's death. It's going to be an interesting night.

The starters are Tim Wakefield and Jered Weaver:

RED SOX ANGELS
NAME T. Wakefield
J. Weaver
W-L 0-0 0-0
ERA n/a n/a
K/9 n/a n/a
BB/9 n/a n/a

Weaver hasn't had the best time facing the Sox. In six regular season career starts, he's 1-2 with a 5.35 ERA. He's 18-9 is his home ballpark lifetime, though.

It's a late one so get some rest before the game starts at 10:05 p.m. EST!
