Game 9 of 162: Toronto at Boston

New, 6 comments

Ted Lilly (0-0, 11.57 ERA) vs. Matt Clement (1-0, 5.14 ERA). 7:05 PM EST start.

Ted Lilly is looking to rebound from his poor start against the Devil Rays. However, that's no easy task considering he's facing the team that led the AL in runs scored last season. Unlike the last two starters, Josh Towers and Gustavo Chacin, Lilly is prone to giving up the long ball. In 2005, 12% of batted balls hit into the outfield against him resulted in a home, compared to 8% and 7% for Towers and Chacin, respectively.

Tonight's Blue Jays lineup:

Adams
Catalanotto
Wells
Glaus
Overbay
Hinske
Zaun
Rios
Hill

Two things to note: Zaun and Hinske get the nods against the right-hander, while Rios gets the call in place of Shea Hillenbrand.

Tonight's Red Sox lineup:

Youkilis
Loretta
Ortiz
Ramirez
Varitek
Lowell
Mohr
Pena
Gonzalez

I'm going to go old school and listen to the game on the radio. The game can be heard on the FAN 590 and seen on Rogers Sportsnet.
