A streak of impressive outings for Felix Doubront ended on Aug. 10, when the left-hander lasted just four innings a Red Sox loss to the Royals. He was shaky again against the Yankees a week later, getting shelled for seven runs on eight hits in four frames.
Doubront finally regained his form last Wednesday, though, tossing an eight-inning gem in San Francisco to lead the Sox in a 12-1 rout. He’ll look to build off that performance Tuesday night, when Boston returns from its West Coast swing to host the Orioles.
The southpaw has faced the O’s just once this season, and it was not one of his better outings. Doubront allowed four quick runs on seven hits and was chased after 4 2/3 innings.
