Tim Wakefield (L), Rick Porcello (R)

After putting up 14 runs in the consecutive games, the Boston Red Sox look to do it again tonight in game two of a four-game set with the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.

Tonight’s game is scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. and will be televised in the Red Sox television market on NESN. If you live in the Tigers television market, you can catch the game on FOX Sports Detroit.  And if you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2011 Red Sox Radio Network.

Tim Wakefield makes his 13th appearance (fourth start) for the white-hot Red Sox. In his previous 12 appearances (three starts), Wake is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA. He didn’t face the Tigers earlier this season and had no record with a 9.00 ERA (2 ER/2 IP) in one appearance against the Tigers in 2010. He’s made 36 career appearances (23 starts) against the Tigers in his career and is 16-10 with a 4.25 ERA. In 16 games (11 starts) in the Motor City, Wake is 6-5 with a 4.93 ERA. More specifically, he’s made 11 appearances (seven starts) at Comerica Park and is 4-3 with a 4.19 ERA.

Rick Porcello will make his ninth start of 2011 for Jim Leyland’s Tigers squad. In his eight previous starts, Porcello is 4-2 with a 3.08 ERA. He didn’t face the Red Sox earlier in the season either and the last time he faced them was in 2009 when Youk charged the mound after being hit by Porcello. He’s made two career starts against the Red Sox and is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA (4 ER/5.1 IP).
