Red Sox - 011 100 010 000 - 4 15 017 LOB. 3-for-22 with RISP.
Angels - 102 000 100 001 - 5 11 0
Julio Lugo: 5-for-6***
David Ortiz: 0-for-7, 12 LOB
Brad Penny (6.90, 72 ERA+) / Ervin Santana (2008: 3.49, 127 ERA+)
Instead of facing Joe Saunders, we get Santana, who will make his 2009 debut.
Santana was sidelined by a collateral ligament sprain in his right elbow during spring training. David Ortiz is 5-for-9 against Santana: .556/.636/1.111. It's time to get that big bat going.
