Dana Eveland (7.40, 55 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3.67, 126 ERA+)
Eveland faced the Red Sox back on April 14 in Oakland. 4.2-8-5-3-2, 108. The A's won 6-5 in 12 innings. (That was a horrible night; Dice went one inning and Lopez blew the game in the 12th.)
Eveland has not started a game since May 1 (log). His last major league appearance was in relief on May 3, when he faced four batters and got none of them out. Two days later, he was optioned to Sacramento (AAA), where he posted a 3.49 ERA in 12 starts. He threw 89 pitches on Friday (5-5-1-5-4) and will be working on three days rest.
Beckett, who has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his last nine starts, has not faced the A's this season.
