The Red Sox wrap up their spring training slate Wednesday night when they pay a visit to the Houston Astros.
Josh Beckett will get the start in his last tune-up of the spring.
Beckett, who is slated to start the team’s fourth game of the regular
season, is 0-4 with a 6.64 ERA in five Grapefruit League outings.
Jonathan Papelbon, Daniel Bard, Bobby Jenks and Dennys Reyes are all scheduled to follow Beckett out of the bullpen.
Boston closed down City of Palms Park on Tuesday in somewhat
non-dramatic fashion, tying Tampa Bay 1-1. That gives the Sox a 13-19-2
record this spring. They’ve lost as many as 20 spring training games
just three times since 1973.
Nelson Figueroa is on the mound for Houston. First pitch is 8:05 pm. (NESN)
