Texas at Boston 8:05 pm EDT (2nd game)

BOSTON (Ticker) -- John Wasdin makes his second appearance of the season against one of his former teams Saturday when the Texas Rangers meet the Boston Red Sox in the second game of a day-night doubleheader.

After being recalled from Class AAA Oklahoma, Wasdin (0-0, 0.00 ERA) pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings and recorded two strikeouts in last Saturday's relief outing against the Chicago White Sox.

Wasdin went 19-16 with the Red Sox from 1997-2000 and is 2-4 with a 6.29 lifetime ERA against Boston.

The Red Sox counter with Josh Beckett (7-3, 5.27), who went 4-1 with a 4.42 ERA in the month of May. He lasted just 1 1/3 innings in his last outing Monday against the New York Yankees, surrendering eight runs and seven hits.

Beckett opened his season with a victory over Texas after yielding just one run and seven hits in seven frames.
