After a two-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins, the Boston Red Sox head to the mid-Atlantic to kickoff interleague play with the Philadelphia Phillies in a three-game set at Citizens Bank Park.

Tonight’s game will start at 7:05 p.m. and will be shown on NESN in the Red Sox television market. The game can be seen in the Phillies television market on CSN Philly. For those who don’t live in either market, the game will also be broadcast on the MLB Network.To find out if you get the MLB Network, click here (enter zip code at bottom). If you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2010 Red Sox radio network.

John Lackey makes his ninth start of 2010 for Terry Francona and the Red Sox. In his eight starts, he is 4-2 with a 4.86 ERA. He’s only faced the Phillies once and that came back in 2003 as a member of the Angels at home. In that start, he picked up the win after allowing one run in 6 1/3 innings.

Like Lackey, Cole Hamels will be making his ninth start of the season. In his eight starts, he is also 4-2 and has an ERA of 4.29. His one career start against the Red Sox came at home in June of 2008 and he picked up the win after allowing two runs over seven innings.
