So the Boston Red Sox are 6-10 this season, are using minor leaguers in their outfield and can't throw out any baserunners.
Red Sox ace 1A Jon Lester is 0-2 with an 8.44 ERA, and so he should be ripe for the crushing by a struggling Orioles' lineup. Right?
But consider this: Lester is 10-0 in 12 starts against the Orioles in his career. And the Orioles are 8-32 in their last 40 games at Fenway since David Ortiz hit a walkoff against B.J. Ryan on June 2, 2005.
They've also lost 13 of their last 14 here.
One thing likely will happen: Lester or the Orioles will break out of their recent funk.
