Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed Wednesday what many thought for the better part of a week, naming Jon Lester as his Game 1 starter in the American League Division Series, which begins Friday at Fenway Park.
Farrell made the announcement in the moments after the team’s six-inning scrimmage. John Lackey will start Game 2 and Clay Buchholz and Jake Peavy, the two starters in the scrimmage, will go in that order on the road in Games 3 and 4.
For Lester, it will be his ninth postseason appearance and seventh start. It is his first playoff outing since getting the loss opposite Lackey in Game 1 of the 2009 ALDS at Fenway. Lester carries loads of momentum into this postseason, having gone 5-2 with a 2.19 ERA over his final 10 outings.
