After winning a wild and crazy game on Sunday night, the Boston Red Sox look to make it three wins in a row today in the finale of a four-game set with the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park.

First pitch is scheduled for 11:05 a.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Orioles market, you can catch the game on MASN.  If you don’t live in either market you’re in luck as the MLB Network will have coverage of the game as well. And if you can’t catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2014 Red Sox Radio Network.

Clay Buchholz takes the ball for the fourth time this season and second at home. In his previous three starts, Buchholz is 0-1 with a 5.51 ERA (10 ER/16.1 IP). He was 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts against the O’s in 2013. In 16 career appearances (15 starts), he is 9-3 with a 3.40 ERA against the Birds. Seven of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 4-1 with a 1.74 ERA.

Wei-Yin Chen steps to the bump for the fourth time in 2014. In his previous three starts, Chen is 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA. His only loss of the season came against the Red Sox on April 3 when he allowed four runs in 5.1 innings of work. He’s made eight career starts against them and is 2-3 with a 5.24 ERA. Five of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 1-2 with a 5.86 ERA.
