The Sox enter today’s game having celebrated two walk-off wins in the space of 24 hours of 8/1, and a comeback from down 7-1 in the 8th and 7-2 in the 9th last night. Now they have to deal with a substantially less crappy team, however.
Today we see Delgado vs. Lester. Delgado has not given up more than 3 ER in an outing yet this year (8 starts and he’s coming off a complete game, 3-hit shutout against the Padres), but often doesn’t get to 6 innings in his MLB career. Lester had 4 good to excellent starts in July and one stinker (against Seattle), so here’s hoping the recent improvement continues. Samuel L. Jackson Snakes on a Plane reference. Comment away!
