Last night, the Red Sox took another game from the Tampa Bay Rays and maintained a 1.5 game lead in the AL East. The final score of the game yesterday was 4-2. Clay Buchholz got the win.
Next up is a series vs the Milwaukee Brewers (inter-league) and that will be in Boston at Fenway Park. The probable pitchers for tonight are John Lackey (4-5, 7.41 ERA) vs Shaun Marcum (7-2, 2.68 ERA). The probable pitchers for tomorrow night are Jon Lester (9-2, 3.73 ERA) vs Randy Wolf (4-4, 3.20 ERA). Sunday’s probable pitchers are Tim Wakefield (3-2, 4.39 ERA) vs Yovani Gallardo (8-3, 3.76 ERA).
The Brewers have great pitching this year (as far as ERA) and have put together a record worthy of first place in the NL Central.
