Beeks makes big debut in Boston

Beeks makes big debut in Boston.

Jalen Beeks makes his major league debut for the Red Sox (43-19) when baseball's top team, looking for its fifth straight victory, hosts Detroit.

The 24-year-old lefty allowed two or fewer runs in eight of his 10 starts for Triple-A Pawtucket.

He said he expects his wife, two kids and "I'm guessing like 15 others" to be in the stands.

Before the game, Boston star Mookie Betts (10-day disabled list, left abdominal strain) plans to take batting practice and second baseman Dustin Pedroia (left knee inflammation) is expected to resume baseball activities.
