After falling for the fourth straight game last night 4-1, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track in the middle game of a three-game set with the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park in the little Havana section of Miami.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Marlins television market, you can catch the game on Fox Sports Florida. And if you don’t live in either market, the MLB Network will have coverage of the game (not in Red Sox or Marlins television markets). If you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.
Clay Buchholz looks to continue his recent run of good pitching tonight in his 13th start of 2012. In his previous 12 starts, Buchholz is 6-2 with a 5.77 ERA. Tonight marks his first career start against the Marlins.
After 12 years with the Chicago White Sox, Mark Buehrle makes his 13th start of 2012 with the Marlins. In his previous 12 starts, Buehrle is 5-6 with a 3.49 ERA. He picked up a no decision in his only start of 2011 against the Red Sox when he allowed two runs in six innings of work. Buehrle has made 17 career appearances (16 starts) against the visiting nine and is 6-6 with a 4.49 ERA.
