Revenge of Southpaw: There can be only one green monster
After yesterday’s disappointment, the Red Sox continued their hot start, which could be anything when compared to their 2020 season. However, the White Sox surprised them by taking the opener of this doubleheader and are looking for a full day sweep.
Game 2 is Michael Kopech vs. Martin Perez. Pérez is 2-5 in 11 career starts at Fenway, and hasn’t won a game there since joining the Red Sox, so let’s keep it that way. Kopech is looking to dominate in his first start back since returning from Tommy John surgery and his 2020 opt-out, and considering how his relief appearances have gone I expect this will be an excellent showing.
Here’s Game 2’s starting lineups:
The Red Sox are fielding some guys.
