Lackey, Wright And Dempster To Face Astros

The Red Sox will send John Lackey (tonight), Stephen Wright (Tuesday) and Ryan Dempster (Wednesday) to the hill for their 3-game set with the abysmal Houston Astros. Houston—which has lost its last four games—is in last palce in the AL West with just 36 wins. They have achieved a perfect symmetry this year in one sense. They are (18-37) at home and (18-37) on the road.
