It's no wonder Jennifer Garner knows a thing or two about the BoSox. Appearing last night on "The Jay Leno Show," Ben Affleck's better half said the Old Towne Team is always on the TV. "162 (games)...They're on somewhere in the house if (Ben's) around," said Garner, who was hyping her new flick "The Invention of Lying." Asked to name the Sox line-up - Leno called it "the rundown" - the actress was up to speed. (Her only mistake: She referred to Victor Martinez as Alex Gonzalez.) While referring to herself as "a Varitek girl," Garner said her favorite player is Kevin Youkilis. She also gave a shout-out to Big Papi, and said Mike Lowell looks like George Clooney. Good night and good luck.
