Felix Doubront Chased Early, But Keeps Record Alive Only Allowing Three Runs for 16th Straight Start (Video)

Felix Doubront didn’t have his best stuff Saturday night, and even though he was chased in the fifth inning, the left-hander still keeps his impressive streak alive.

For the 16th straight game, Doubront has allowed three runs or less. That record ties him with Babe Ruth for the longest single-season streak by a left-hander in Red Sox history.

John Lackey will get the start Sunday, so check out the above video to hear about Doubront’s effort as well as what Lackey will need to do for the Red Sox to split the series against the red-hot Royals.
