Nothing like a visit from the defending American League champions to keep a difficult early-season schedule going.
RED SOX (4-6)
Pitching: LHP Jon Lester (0-1, 2.40)
Pitching: RHP Colby Lewis (1-0, 1.42)
Game time: 7:10 p.m.
TV/Radio: NESN, WEEI
Notes: Rangers starter Colby Lewis was 1-2 with an 8.22 ERA in three starts vs. the Red Sox last season. Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was 6 for 7 with a double and two home runs vs. Lewis … One day after responding to criticism from manager Bobby Valentine, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis will try to improve on his 6 for 30 start to the season … The Rangers are seeking their first 4-0 start away from home in 20 years.
