Blue Jays @ Red Sox Preview

Jon Lester is on the hill and he will do his best to make us forget that Lackey is on this team. Lester is coming off one of his best starts to the season going 7 innings against the Phillies allowing no runs, 2 hits with 5 Ks. If that wasn't good enough he is also 6-1 with a 3.47 ERA in his last eight starts versus the Blue Jays, allowing two or fewer runs in six of those outings.

Going against him is Brett Cecil who is having a tough year (1-3 7.24 ERA), but his lone win did come against the Sox on April 15, when he allowed three runs and two hits.

Boston is most likely going to be without Youk, and with Crawford already out the Sox are a bit shorthanded. Still, I expect them to blow the doors off this team. You could see them starting rolling last game, and if it wasn't for Lackey being the worst player ever the Sox would've won. With Lester out there tonight, I don't see them losing.

Sox win 7-3
Player of the Game: Pedroia
Game starts at 7:10pm
