Dan Haren (L), Jon Lester (R)

The Boston Red Sox continued their recent dominance over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last night and look to do the same tonight in game two of a four-game set.

First pitch for tonight’s game is at 7:10 p.m. and the game will be televised by NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Angels television market, you can catch the game on FoxSports West. And if you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2011 Red Sox Radio Network.

After putting his previous April woes from years past behind him, Jon Lester looks to continue a strong run in his 7th start of the season. In his previous six starts, Lester is 3-1 with a 2.52 ERA. He’s faced the Angels once this season back on April 22nd where he got the win after throwing six scoreless innings. He’s made six career starts against the Halos and is 3-1 with a 4.81 ERA. Three of those starts have come at Fenway Park where he is 1-1 with a 4.66 ERA.

Dan Haren will try to get the Angels back in the win column tonight after his buddy Jered Weaver took his first loss of 2011. In seven starts, Haren is 4-1 with a 1.23 ERA. His lone loss came against the Red Sox in that April 22nd game where he allowed four runs (two earned) in six innings. Overall in his career, he’s made nine starts against the Red Sox and is 2-6 with a 3.19 ERA. He has lost his last three starts against them. He’s made five career starts at Fenway Park where he is 1-4 with a 3.81 ERA.
