A's send Windsor out to face Red Sox

Jason Windsor will make his second start in the Majors as he faces the Red Sox on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old earned a no-decision in his first start against Baltimore on July 17. Windsor gave up three runs (one earned) over five innings and had three walks against the Orioles.

The leadoff batter reached base four times against the Windsor, and he was lifted after 86 pitches.

Windsor's biggest mistake came on a throwing error in the third inning that allowed two runs to score.

The right-hander will make the start against Curt Schilling of the Sox.

Pitching matchup
OAK: RHP Jason Windsor (0-0, 1.80 ERA)
Windsor celebrated his 24th birthday the day before his first Major League start. Windsor lived close to Oakland before playing at Cal State Fullerton and said that the highlight of his first start was striking out Miguel Tejada.

BOS: RHP Curt Schilling (12-3, 3.50 ERA)
Schilling heads to the mound with momentum after his last win, a seven-inning effort against the Rangers on Thursday. He allowed a season-high 10 hits and four runs, but walked just one while striking out six. Schilling has worked at least seven innings in four of his last five starts and has gone at least six in each of his last 12 starts. The last time Schilling faced Oakland he shut out the A's on two hits over seven innings in a 7-0 win July 15 at Fenway Park.

Player to watch
Milton Bradley went 15-for-33 with two doubles, two homers, eight RBIs and six runs in eight games on the recently concluded road trip, and his hot streak continued Monday with an RBI single.
