The Rangers pitching was beat up yesterday as the Sox plated 11 runs. Last season the Rangers were 7-5 coming off a double-digit explosion by their opponent, and outscored them 65-52 in the process. Jason Jennings is off to a poor start with the Rangers, but his career numbers against the Sox are quite good (2-0, 2.08 ERA). It has been a struggle for Jon Lester as he enters 1-2 with a nearly 6 ERA, and has really struggled with command as he has walked 15 in just 20 innings. Lester also owns a 6.23 ERA against the Rangers, so we will ride the road dog here.
