Red Sox Vs. Athletics: Boston Seeks First Road Win Of Season In Wednesday Matinee

September 27, 2010. That's the last time the Boston Red Sox won a game on the road. With Tuesday night's 5-0 loss at the Oakland Athletics, Boston is now 0-7 on the road, the first time they've ever opened a season with that many consecutive road losses; They are the last winless team away from home in MLB.

The Red Sox will look to snap that streak Wednesday afternoon when they take on the A's in a getaway game at 3:35 p.m. ET. 

J.D. Drew is back in the leadoff spot and Jason Varitek is back behind the plate. Boston will be going up against Oakland's Gio Gonzalez (2-0, 0.47 ERA), a lefty who has struck out 14 batters in 19 innings this season. With a southpaw on the mound, David Ortiz gets the afternoon off -- Kevin Youkilis will handle DH duties, with Jed Lowrie filling in at third base. 

Red Sox lineup: 

1. J.D. Drew, RF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
