Red Sox Spring Training 2012: Sliding Sox Turn To Aaron Cook Against Yankees

The Red Sox will look to snap a three-game losing streak behind Aaron Cook as they face the New York Yankees for the second time this spring. First pitch is at 7:05, with broadcasts from NESN, ESPN, and WRKO.

Struggling to find solid contributions from the pitching staff, the Sox have allowed 23 runs over the last three games, leaving them to turn to Aaron Cook to right the ship. Though he's seemingly out of the rotation conversation after being forced into a late start by injury, Cook has yet to allow a run in 5.1 innings of work this spring. He will be followed by Ross Ohlendorf, Jesse Carlson, and Mark Melancon in relief.

The Yankees will turn to minor leaguer Adam Warren. A 4th round draft pick in 2009, Warren enjoyed a successful season in Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last year, throwing 152 innings with a 3.60 ERA. He'll have his hands full tonight, as the Sox are set to feature a lineup we could well see against a lefty in April; luckily for Warren, he's right handed.
