The Red Sox are after a series win Wednesday afternoon as they send Jon Lester to the mound against Ricky Romero and the Blue Jays.
Lester was shaky but effective in the season opener against the Tigers, going seven innings and allowing just the one run. Ricky Romero was rather less impressive, surrendering four earned runs in five innings to the Indians. Hopefully both players repeat their performances.
