To the night portion of the double header we go! Lester vs. Shields

A slightly more complete lineup, if lacking perhaps the most important name of all in Kevin Youkilis. It's nice to be able to rest your best guy and still look intimidating 1-7. JD Drew will slot in at Youk's usual #4--hopefully he'll have one of those games of his.

If you missed the first game, you can check out the recap. The Sox will not be able to pitch Papelbon for a save situation, as he closed out the 9th earlier today. Presumably, Billy Wagner would be the go-to-guy for such a situation. Okajima also pitched earlier, but otherwise, the entire pen should be available after yesterday's short game.
