Saturday’s Game 2 Red Sox-Yankees matchups: Felix Doubront vs. Freddy Garcia
|07.07.12 at 4:35 pm ET|
In his last start, Doubront (8-4, 4.42) allowed one run through 4 1/3 innings as the Red Sox defeated Seattle 2-1. Doubront did not factor in the decision, however.
June 20 is the last time he won a start. Doubront pitched six innings of four-run baseball en route to a 15-5 victory over the Marlins on that day.
The 24-year-old started against the Yankees on April 21, when he allowed one run through six innings in an eventual 15-9 Red Sox loss. Doubront has faced nine members of New York’s current lineup, but none more than six times.
Freddy Garcia, who is filling in as a starter for the injured CC Sabathia, last started on July 2. He pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed two runs as the Yankees fell to the Rays 4-3. Garcia (2-2, 5.94) did not factor in the decision.
The 36-year-old also started against the Red Sox and Doubront on April 21. Although the Yankees eventually won, Garcia only lasted 1 2/3 innings and allowed five runs on seven hits.
Of the 10 Boston batters who have faced Garcia, designated hitter David Ortiz has the most experience. In 42 appearances against the righty, Ortiz has a .300 batting average, two home runs, five doubles and 7 RBIs. Yankees vs. Doubront (LHP)
