After an 1-5 road trip that saw the Boston Red Sox hit .192 as a team and have the starters take 5 losses, they return home to the friendly Fens to take on the Baltimore Orioles.

The game tonight will start at 7:10 PM EDT and will be televised in the Red Sox television market on NESN. If you live in the Orioles television market, you can catch the game on MASN. And if the television isn’t your cup of tea, you can catch the game on one of the many affiliates of the Red Sox Radio Network.

Brad Penny will try to jump start the Red Sox and maybe even last longer than 5 innings this time as he could be pitching for his job in the rotation. He is 6-4 with a 5.02 ERA in 18 starts. Penny has made one start against the Orioles this season and in his career. He took a no-decision as he gave up 8 earned runs in 3 innings. The Red Sox came back to win that game 10-8.

Brad Bergesen looks to keep the Red Sox bats silenced as he starts for Dave Trembley tonight. Bergesen has faced the Red Sox once in his career back on July 1st. In that start, he allowed just one run on 4 hits in 8 innings before watching his bullpen blow the lead.

In case you missed the news this afternoon, the Red Sox waived Mark Kotsay to make room for Adam LaRoche on the 25-man roster.
