On Wednesday night, Felix Doubront will try to win his third game of the year when he and the Boston Red Sox face five-game winner Hisashi Iwakuma and the Seattle Mariners.
Left-hander Felix Doubront ended up with a no decision in his last start when he gave up three earned runs in 4.2 innings of work against the Oakland Athletics. He gave up just two hits in that game, but he also walked four batters while striking out four. Through 10 starts this season, Doubront is 2-4 for the Red Sox with a 5.19 ERA.
All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano has gone up against Doubront more than any of the other Mariners, but he is just 2-for-20 against the lefty with six strikeouts.
Right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma made his 10th start of the year last Friday against the Kansas City Royals and ended up getting the no decision after giving up five earned runs in five innings of work. He allowed nine hits, including two home runs, in that game and walked one batter while striking out five. Iwakuma has a 5-3 record this season and has only walked a total of seven batters in 71 innings.
Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski has gone up against Iwakuma 12 times in his career and he has four hits, one RBI and one strikeout against him. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia is 2-for-5 against Iwakuma with a home run and three RBI.
