The Red Sox attempt to pick up their first series win of the second half as John Lackey makes his return to Los Angeles.
|2010 - John Lackey||9-5||21||20||0||0||0||0||128.0||144||66||62||10||49||77||4.36||1.51|
Opposing him is this year's new ace--Jered Weaver.
|2010 - Jered Weaver||9-6||21||21||0||0||0||0||134.0||116||53||48||16||30||147||3.22||1.09|
The lineup is a lot like last night's, but with a good adjustment. How Jeremy Hermida and his .632 OPS keep getting at bats on this team is beyond me. But at least he's doing it at the back of the lineup.
