Lester’s last 5 starts: 34.1 IP, 42 K, 2.36 ERA
Beckett’s last 5 starts: 35.2 IP, 35 K, 0.76 ERA
We’re a fearsome team when those two are in the groove. Now all we need is Daisuke to get his sh-t together, and for Penny to be replaced on Monday, and we’re good to go.
wake me up in august….
So the difference between him and Pedro/Clemens vs. Ray Culp is one more game?
All four pitchers are the only Sox starters to K at least 10 in three consecutive starts, Rob. Lester is the only lefty in Sox history to do it, btw.
Only Pedro and Clemens have four.
By the way, check out that string from Pedro in 1999 (really eight games to end the season):
8 GS, 7-1, 62 IP, 35 H, 8 ER, 8 BB, 107 K, .431 OPS, average game score = 80
The only loss was the the first game in the streak against Oakland on August 19th. He gave up 3 ER in 7 IP with 11 K against 0 BB in the 6-2 loss.
