These two teams have not met since May 2-May 5 of 2011. The Angels came to Fenway and split a 4-game series with the Sox after being swept by Boston in 4 games a week before. Buchholz and Lester picked up the 2 wins and Lackey and Matsuzaka picked up the 2 losses. Big surprise. Ortiz hit a pair of home runs in that series, which makes no difference since we are talking about last season.
Laser Show: Adrian Gonzalez
Don't Fall Behind: Jered Weaver
Weaver has not had great success against the Red Sox in the past and none of that matters this season. Most pitchers are having great success against the Sox this season. Jered Weaver and his mullet have put together a nice little season, to the tune of a 15-3 record and 2.74 ERA. We are going to see one hell of a pitching duel tomorrow night.
How we see it goin' down
The Angels are in a bit of a slump, but the Sox are just the team to break them out of it. I think the Red Sox are due for a good series, so I'll give them this one. The Sox may not sweep, but I'm feeling 2 out of 3.
