Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Mayor's Cup Continues As Sox Host Twins

The Red Sox look for a decisive 3-1 lead in the Mayor's cup Monday afternoon as they welcome the Twins to JetBlue Park. First pitch will come at 1:35, with Minnesota's TIBN providing the radio broadcast.

Felix Doubront will receive the start for the Red Sox as he continues his campaign to start the year in the rotation. He's thrown six official innings of two-run ball so far in spring, but will need to cut down on his walks if he wants to avoid greater damage.

The Twins will respond with free agent acquisition Jason Marquis. It's been a pretty terrible spring so far for the former National, having allowed nine runs on 14 hits and seven walks in just under nine innings of work. It won't get any easier against the Sox, who are sent to start one of their best lineups so far this spring:
