Lester, Peavy, Doubront & Lackey To Face KC

The Red Sox have set their rotation for the four-game series against the hot Kansas City Royals. Jon Lester will try to get back on track tonight, followed by Jake Peavy on Friday, (new ace) Felix Doubront on Saturday, and John Lackey on Sunday. The Royals are 8-2 in their last 10 games and trail the division-leading Tigers by 8.5 games. Boston enters the series tied with the Atlanta (and formerly, Boston) Braves for the most wins in baseball (70).
