After losing three-of-four in the Bronx, the Boston Red Sox continue their road trip tonight with the first game of a three-game set against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on the South Side.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the White Sox market, you can catch the game on WCIU.  And if you can’t catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2014 Red Sox Radio Network.

One-time member of the White Sox, Jake Peavy, makes his third start of 2014 for the Red Sox. In his previous two starts, Peavy has no record with a 2.13 ERA (3 ER/12.2 IP). He got the win in his only career against his former club after allowing two runs in seven innings of work back in 2013. In 42 appearances (41 starts) at U.S. Cellular, Peavy is 19-13 with a 3.84 ERA.

Erik Johnson makes his third start of 2014 for the South Siders. In his previous two starts, Johnson is 0-1 with a 9.58 ERA (11 ER/10.1 IP). Tonight marks his first career start and appearance against the Red Sox.
