After falling in both games that were played and finished on Saturday night, the Boston Red Sox look to get back on track against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday afternoon.

This afternoon’s game will start at 1:35 p.m. and will be shown on NESN in the Red Sox television market and will be broadcast on Sun Sports in the Rays television market. If you don’t live in either market, you can watch the game on TBS. If you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2010 Red Sox radio network.
