The Red Sox are 22 games into the 2013 season, and they still have yet to lose when either of their top two starters take the mound.
Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz have both been among the league’s elite hurlers this season, and their dominance has been evident in the standings. A 7-2 win over Houston in Buchholz’s most recent start ran the team’s record to a perfect 10-0 in games he or Lester starts.
Though Boston is just 5-7 in the remaining 12 contests, manager John Farrell is confident that the dominance at the top of the rotation will lead to similar success for the team’s No. 3, 4 and 5 starters.
Farrell discussed this and more with Tom Caron prior to Friday’s matchup with the Astros. Check it out in the video above.
