College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
The Boston Red Sox have a three game cushion over the Texas Rangers and seem to be running away with the American League Wild Card race. Five games back are the Tampa Bay Rays and have the chance to get even closer with the first of three tonight against the Bo Sox in Florida. The Rays are coming off a tough series with the Detroit Tigers, but still managed to take two of three from the AL Central leaders. Boston is coming off a series sweep of the plummeting Toronto Blue Jays. Lefty John Lester (10-7) is unbeaten in his last seven and he gets the start for Boston. Scott Kazmir would have gotten the start tonight, but he was traded to the Los Angeles Angels. Andy Sonnanstine (6-7) got recalled from Triple-A Durham and he’s in to take Kazmir’s place.
