So we'll be facing 2 pitchers for the first time (Mendoza and Gabbard), and we've seen Jennings only twice, and not since 04.
Last year, the Sox were 6-4 vs. TEX, 2-2 at Fenway. Ironically, Gabbard got the final win last season.
Texas comes in off of 2 straight wins in TOR beating Burnett and Halladay (although they beat Burnett in 14th inning relief on Wednesday night. That's right, 8 IP from the bullpen Wed, but only 2 Thursday night). Before that, they had lost 5 straight at home to TOR and LAAoA.
Speaking of bullpen, that 2007 TEX team got some good innings from some guy named Gagne. Why can't we get guys like that???
