BBTN video: Previewing Lester vs. Hamels
The BBTN crew of Karl Ravech, John Kruk and Mark Mulder look at Thursday’s series finale between the Red Sox and the Phillies. It’s a great matchup on the mound with lefties Jon Lester and Cole Hamels getting the call. For the Sox, Kruk says that Lester needs to step up and be the guy that can stop a losing streak, and help the Sox avoid a sweep. But it won’t be easy against Hamels, who like Lester is one of the best lefties in the game.
