Both of this today’s starters opened the season with a solid performance in their first game only to get rocked and chased from the game before the end of the 3rd inning in their second outing. Bosox starter Doubront faced the Yankees 4 time last year going 2-1 with a ERA of 6.30, while Nova had 2 starts allowing 11 hits, 7 earned runs in 8 innings. Tough to make call on a winner here with both pitchers off to inconsistent start, so we’ll play the total. Take Over 9 (-115).
