Behind a strong outing from Daisuke Matsuzaka, the Boston Red Sox took the first game of a four-game set against the Cleveland Indians. Tonight they’ll look for another win at Progressive Field behind Tim Wakefield.

Tonight’s game will start at 7:05 p.m. and will be shown on NESN in the Red Sox television market. The game will be shown on STO (SportsTime Ohio) in the Indians television market. If you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2010 Red Sox radio network.

He’s made 27 appearances (22 starts) against the Indians in his career and is 11-8 with a 4.23 ERA. In 13 games (12 starts) at Cleveland, Wake is 5-4 with a 4.09 ERA.

David Huff makes just his second start since taking an Alex Rodriguez line drive off of his head. He’s made 10 starts this season and is 2-6 with a 6.08 ERA. Huff has never faced the Red Sox in his career.
