The bats try to break out of their shells on Easter Sunday.

Chris Sale cannot pitch every day, which is especially bad after yesterday’s victorious 12 K performance, so Drew Pomeranz will have to do for today’s 1:35 p.m. game against the Rays. Pomeranz, coming off a wonderful first outing against Baltimore will be on the hill today against a Rays lineup that scratched a single run off Sale yesterday. The Sox scored merely two runs, but hopefully their bats are risen against the talented-but-oft-injured Alex Cobb today, he of a wonderful leg kick.

It is too nice outside for me to write much more, thank God. Here are the full lineups:
