Game 28: Red Sox Welcome Halos, Weaver To Town

New, comments

With the Red Sox getting May started off right yesterday, they will look to build another win streak as they welcome the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for a four-game set.  This will be the second time the two have played a four game series, as last time ended in a Boston sweep.

The Red Sox will be facing the best pitcher in baseball at the moment, as right hander Jered Weaver will be taking the hill for the Angels.  Weaver is a perfect 6-0 with a 0.99 ERA so far this season.  He certainly has "Cy Young" written all over his forehead at the moment.

The Sox will counter with Clay Buchholz, who has had a hard time keeping the ball in the strike zone as of late.  He was supposed to pitch yesterday, but he was pushed back due to a stomach virus. 

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF

2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B

3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B

4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B

5. David Ortiz, DH

6. J.D. Drew, RF

7. Jed Lowrie, SS

8. Carl Crawford, LF

9. Jason Varitek, C
