Game 88: Red Sox @ Blue Jays, July 11 2010

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.

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.

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.
