Tanner Houck makes his second start of the year and is trying to be the first in the rotation with two “good enough” starts. He was an inning shy of a Quality Start last time out but with any luck can handle the Detroit Tigers.

The Red Sox enter Saturday at 3-4 and with two wins can walk away from Detroit over .500. Early, small sample, etc. but after the long, long, march to .500 of 2022 it’d be nice to get that monkey off their back early with tougher teams on the horizon.
