After two seven-inning games against BC and Northeastern, City of Palms Park has emptied out. The Red Sox beat the two college teams by a combined 39-0, 24-0 over BC in the first game and 15-0 over Northeastern in the second game.
Terry Francona announced the regulars for tomorrow’s game against the Twins: Kevin Youkilis, Dustin Pedroia, Mike Lowell, Julio Lugo, David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Coco Crisp, and Bobby Kielty are all likely to be in the lineup for the first spring training game against a major league team. Daisuke Matsuzaka will be the starter.
This is big-time, remember. It’s for the Mayor’s Cup.
And, with that, good night.
