E-Rod Scratched From Sunday Start; Owens Goes

Still experiencing left hamstring tightness, Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez was scratched from his scheduled start against the Tigers on Sunday. In his place, fellow lefty Henry Owens (who was yanked from his Saturday start) will go to the hill for The Carmine Hose. Once again, the crack Red Sox medical staff was all 'Pollyanna' on E-Rod until the last minute. Last time we checked, Boston was the hub of the medical universe, right? Jeez!
