Prev. Gm:

Boston Red Sox (20-13) @ Detroit Tigers (14-18)
Daisuke Matsuzaka (4-0, 2.52) @ Jeremy Bonderman (2-2, 3.86)

7:05 PM EDT | Comerica Park (Detroit, MI)

GAME NOTES: Last time the Red Sox left the friendly confines of Fenway Park, the offense decided it was time to take a few games off. Now that the beast has once again been awakened, can they feast of some Tiger pitching? Daisuke Matsuzaka looks to continue to make his case for “elevated status”, while Jeremy Bonderman looks to back up a great start against the Yankees in his last outing. Both starters have had success against the opponent in their brief career appearances against them. This has the makings of a pitchers’ duel by the merits of the match up, but two dynamic offenses look to disprove the notion that you win with pitching.
