Gametime: 4:05 (STO)
This is Blanton's third start of the year, his previous two came against the Red Sox (the series was split between Japan and Oakland). He did well all things considered, allowing 5 runs in 11.2 innings between the two starts.
Cliff Lee is making his first start of probably the most important season of his career. And what's his prescription for getting back on track?
"I don't want to give a scouting report on how I'm pitching," Lee said,"but I need to mix my pitches better, pretty much, and be a little morecrisp with my locations. [Not doing that] is what got me in troublelast year.
So far, so good.
