Hey, look, a game with a pitching matchup that actually favors the Sox!

Jon Lester will take the mound for the first time since the All-Star break and try and help the Sox to salvage a split from this series that started so poorly.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - Jon Lester 11-3 18 18 2 0 0 0 120.0 87 38 37 6 44 124 2.77 1.09


Opposing him will be C.J. Wilson, who fits the profile of a guy getting big help from his defense more than that of a dominating pitcher.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - C.J. Wilson 7-5 18 18 2 0 0 0 113.0 86 48 42 7 55 82 3.35 1.25


The Sox again field only five regulars today in the lineup, with Drew sitting against the lefty.
