Wednesday Night Baseball
Mike Lowell left the game and was replaced by the mighty Casey, who promptly bashed a single up the middle. Lowell has a sprained left thumb, suffered on a diving stop of Pudge Rodriguez. X-Rays negative. He’s day to day.
Timlin wrapped up his rehab assignment at Pawtucket tonight. He fired a scoreless sixth inning, reeling off 10 pitches, seven of which were for strikes.
Lester was rolling tonight. Now the Tigers are rolling over him. Because I wasn’t in Toronto, tomorrow will mark the first Red Sox game I’ve seen this season started by someone other than Dice-K or Lester.
