Curt Schilling (3.81) / Daniel Cabrera (4.10), 7 PM
Cabrera walked a staggering 5.34 batters per nine innings last year. In four starts this year, he has walked only seven batters (and struck out 26). ... Cabrera has pitched 33 innings (in eight starts) against the Red Sox in his career -- he first faced them in mid-2005 -- allowing 43 hits, 32 walks, and getting pounded to the tune of a 9.27 ERA.
Schilling pitching only four innings on Opening Day, but he has gone at least seven innings in his past three starts.
Lineup: Coco Crisp is out of the lineup again, so Wily Mo Pena returns to CF. Alex Cora -- 9-for-16 against Cabrera gets the nod over Dustin Pedroia.
Pawtucket was rained out tonight, so Jon Lester will pitch on Friday.
