Notes: Lakeland is about two hours and 30 minutes away and the Sox have to face Verlander in the sunshine. Good luck with all that. The bus left at 7:30 a.m. … Matsuzaka (8.2 IP, 12 H, 11 ER, 5 BB, 4 K, 3 HR) has not exactly inspired confidence this spring. … The Tigers play at City of Palms on Friday.
