After the four-game series at home against Texas, Boston heads West for a three-game set with the A's, followed by a four-game series with the Marines and then visit the Angels for three games. Fourteen games in 14 days.â†µ
Dice-K will get the start Monday, in Oakland, and then it is likely that Clay Buchholz would be slotted back into the rotation for Tuesday's game, assuming all goes well with his Pawtucket rehab start on Friday.
