The Red Sox seem to have caught the Tigers at the right time. Good news, given that we can't afford to lose right now.
That shouldn't--shouldn't be an issue tonight, as Jon Lester will take the mound for the Red Sox.
|2010 - Jon Lester||11-5||20||20||2||0||0||0||135.2||100||47||44||7||48||143||2.92||1.09|
The Tigers will send out he who was actually robbed of a perfect game, Armando Galarraga. It's hardly been a perfect season for Armando.
|2010 - Armando Galarraga||3-3||12||11||1||1||0||0||69.0||70||35||34||9||18||33||4.43||1.28|
You'd think after his last start, Lester might get a reprieve from Eric Patterson. No such lucky, as the man who can't play baseball is in left field tonight, opposite the other man who can't play baseball who's filling in for the still-aching Drew.
