Rubber game time.
After a disappointing loss in which I have no idea what happened (too busy getting rained on like a lot of others), the Sox look to head into the All-Star break on a good note. To do that, they'll have to win what is very likely to be yet another slugfest.
Or maybe walkfest is a better word. After all, the true master is on the mound for the Sox in Daisuke Matsuzaka. Try not to get too depressed, now.
|2010 - Daisuke Matsuzaka||5-3||11||11||0||0||0||0||65.0||58||36||34||3||35||54||4.71||1.43|
The Jays counter with Jesse Litsch, who might be the worst pitcher to start a game this year based on his numbers. We'll see, but if the Red Sox don't hit this guy, it'll be an incredible failure.
|2010 - Jesse Litsch||0-3||5||5||0||0||0||0||24.2||30||20||20||4||9||7||7.30||1.58|
Mike Cameron is out of the lineup with a sore wrist after getting plunked in yesterday's game. Pretty standard fair for the hurt Sox.
