Coming off last night's 8-4 loss to the Royals, the Red Sox will send Steven Wright to the hill in the first game of Wednesday's day/night doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium.
Wright (3-3) has been perhaps the most consistent of the Red Sox starting pitchers this season, going at least six innings in six of his seven starts. His best outing was a complete game win over the Yankees in New York on May 8.
The Royals will counter with Ian Kennedy (3-3) who has won two of his last three starts. He has only faced the Red Sox once in his career, a 6-3 loss in June of 2010 while with Arizona.
Jackie Bradley Jr. brings a 22-game hitting streak with him into today's action.
Here is the Red Sox lineup (first pitch 2:15 EDT):
Born in Queens, NYC and lived kind of all over the place from PA to NJ to NYC and back to NJ.
Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
