Game 12: Rays @ Red Sox -- April 18, 2010

New, comments

Back to the day games we go. The Red Sox will try and keep the Rays from locking up a series win today in a battle of aces. Jon Lester gets the start for the Sox against Matt Garza. The season has started very differently for the two young flamethrowers: Garza has so far dominated competition the Orioles, allowing only 2 earned runs in 16 innings of work, while Lester has struggled to get outs in two nearly identically bad starts against the Twins and Yankees.

The Red Sox are in somewhat dire straits as far as the beginning of the season is concerned. Already 4 games back of the Yankees, they need to string together some wins. No better time to start then today.

Go Sox! Lineups et al. after the jump.

(Welcome to another Rain Delay!)
