Jake Odorizzi (L), Rubby De La Rosa (R)

After walking off with their fifth straight win last night, the Boston Red Sox look to for another win tonight in the second game of three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. The game will be nationally on FOX. You can check the map to see if you’re getting the game. However, if you’re an MLB Extra Innings or MLB.tv subscriber that is receiving the other game, you’ll still be able to watch the game on your subscription package. And if you can’t catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2014 Red Sox Radio Network.

Rubby De La Rosa makes his first big league start of the 2014 season. He was 2-3 with a 3.04 ERA in 10 starts for the Pawtucket Red Sox. He took the loss in his only appearance of 2013 against the Rays after allowing a run in ⅓ of an inning.

Jake Odorizzi makes his 11th start of the 2014 campaign. In his previous 10 starts, Odorizzi is 2-4 with a 4.56 ERA. He picked up a no decision last Sunday against the Red Sox after allowing one run in six innings of work. He’s made two career starts against the local nine and and has no record with a 1.54 ERA (2 ER/11.2 IP). He allowed one run in 5.2 innings of work in his lone Fenway Park start.
