Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Sox Split Squad Against Marlins, Phillies

The Red Sox will split their squad for some N.L. East action Saturday afternoon as they welcome the Philadelphia Phillies to Ft. Myers, and head to Jupiter to play the Florida Marlins. First pitches are at 1:05 in Jupiter and 1:35 in Ft. Myers, with WAXN providing a radio broadcast of the Marlins game and NESN/WEEI covering the Phillies match.

On the road, the Sox will feature Felix Doubront in the starting role. The lefty has been solid so far this spring, posting a 3.38 ERA over three games of work, though he was touched for eight hits in under five innings in his last appearance. Alfredo Aceves will receive the nod at home, and could well force his way into the rotation if he continues his performance. With just one earned run in nine innings, Aceves has struck out eight batters along the way and walked none--a far cry from what he usually did in starts last year. Both starters will be given the chance to go six innings as they gear up for the beginning of the regular season.

With two games, but just half a squad at each, can the Red Sox finally grab a win? It's been five games since they last emerged victorious, and with just under two weeks left to go until the regular season, now would be the time to get their engines started again.
