Man, all these games against Minnesota. It's almost like a real regular season series.

Except, y'know, without all the players and with Triple-A lifers closing out games pinch hitting for Major League All-Stars.

Close enough.

The Sox are looking for the crucial 2-1 advantage in the not-so-crucial Mayor's Cup, and they have the right man on the mound to get them there, as Jon Lester takes the ball for Game 3. Jonathan Papelbon, too, will get his chance today.

They've got the traditional half a lineup too:

Marco Scutaro, SS

Jed Lowrie, 2B

Mike Cameron, DH

Kevin Youkilis, 3B

Ryan Kalish, CF

Darnell McDonald, LF

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C

Josh Reddick, RF

Drew Sutton, 1B

Jon Lester, SP

MLB.com seems to have that little headphones icon next to the game's listing, so the audio should be available from some source or another. I hope for your sakes that it's not the crew from the last game.

Go Sox!
