Red Sox vs. Orioles matchups, 4/24
|04.24.10 at 11:50 am ET|
John Lackey will try to recover after the wheels came off the tracks in his last start against Tampa. Lackey was solid in his first two outings of the season, but he got shelled for eight runs in 3.1 innings in last weekends demoralizing 8-2 loss to the Rays.
Again, the Orioles can help get his wheels safely back on the road. Lackey holds a career 8-3 record with a 3.16 ERA in 12 starts vs. the O’s.
Orioles’ starter Brian Matusz has never faced the Red Sox in his brief career. In fact, the only Red Sox hitter he has faced is Marco Scutaro, and the Sox shortstop smacked a home run.
The 6-foot-4, left-handed pitcher is 7-2 with a 4.55 ERA in 11 career starts. This season he is 2-0 with a 4.34 ERA in three starts.
