Joba makes his third start of the year against Jon Lester in Boston.
Chamberlain made one great start, then a poor one. Lester's been the opposite, following two poor starts with a great start.
Joba has fared well against Boston early in the going: 2-0, 3.12 ERA, 17.1 innings (including a seven-inning shutout last July 25th).
Lester has pitched nearly as well against the Yanks, compiling a 3-1 record with a 3.42 ERA over 26.1 innings.
