Thanks to a rainout, the Sox and Tigers play two today, a split-admission affair that features both ends of the Sox’ starting rotation. While Julian Tavarez maintains his role as starter for Game 1, Mike Maroth disappears, and in his place is Zach Miner, who has yet to make an appearance in 2007 after acquitting himself fairly well as a rookie last season. He made his big-league debut against the Sox last year, taking the loss in an 8-3 game.
The second game features a much better matchup for the Sox. Curt Schilling faces Chad Durbin. A split of the doubleheader means a split of the series, something I think we can live with. Anything better is just gravy. Consider this your thread for both ends of the doubleheader.
