  • 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.

  • 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.
