The A's young pitcher carries a 2.00 ERA into his first career start in Boston and will be matched up against struggling Red Sox pitcher, Clay Buchholz, who has a bloated 8.87 ERA in 4 starts on the season.
The Athletic's come in a game under .500 at 11-12, 5.5 games behind the Rangers in the AL West. The Red Sox are within a game of even as well at 10-11 but hold the bottom spot in the AL East, 3.5 games back of the first place Orioles and Rays.
With the exception of Buchholz, the Red Sox' starting rotation has been impressive of late, making it vital that the struggling starter flips the switch soon. Especially with Aaron Cook dazzling at AAA and Dice-K fairly close to returning.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm and the lineups will be posted here as soon as they're available.
