Game 49: Royals (19-28) @ Red Sox (27-21)

New, comments

The Red Sox are back at home and they've got a guy who flirted with a no-no last week on the mound.

Daisuke Matsuzaka starts for the Red Sox. In his last outing against the Phils, he went 8 innings and allowed just one hit -- in the 8th inning. We'll see how Dice-K performs against a lineup that doesn't even come close to what he faced in Philly:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Daisuke Matsuzaka 3-1 5 5 0 0 0 0 29.2 25 20 19 2 13 24 5.76 1.28

The Royals send out Brian Bannister:


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Brian Bannister 3-3 9 9 0 0 0 0 53.1 55 28 28 9 19 31 4.72 1.39

And the lineups, without Jacoby Ellsbury or Mike Cameron starting for the Red Sox. Hey! It's April all over again!:
