Dontrelle Willis is scheduled to start today. Not having heard anything about the status of his flu-like symptoms that’s all I have to work with. Jon Lester takes the ball for the Red Sox.
Willis faced Boston once last season and he didn’t allow a hit. He did however allow 5 walks in 2.1 innings and 5 runs came around to score. Willis has been pitching much better than last year though so I don’t know how relevant that is.
Lester has been quite good this year. He’s striking out a batter an inning, limiting homers (4 in 43.2 innings) and not walking too many.
