Andrew Miller (L), David Price (R)

The first place Boston Red Sox return from the All-Star break tonight at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL. They’ll put their six-game winning streak on the line in the first game of a three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Tonight’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and you can watch the game on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Rays television market, you can catch the game on Sun Sports. If you don’t live in either market you may be in luck as the MLB Network is also supposed to have coverage of the game. And if you can’t catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2011 Red Sox Radio Network.

Andrew Miller makes his fifth start of 2011 for the Red Sox and just his second against an American League squad. In his previous four starts, Miller is 3-0 with a 3.57 ERA. His only career start against the Rays came back in 2009 at Tropicana Field as a member of the Florida Marlins. In that start, he took the loss after allowing five runs in 6.1 innings.

David Price makes his 20th start of the season for Joe Maddon’s Rays. In his previous 19 starts, Price is 8-7 with a 3.70 ERA. He’s made two starts against the Red Sox in 2011 and is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA (5 ER/12.2 IP). Price has made seven career starts against the Red Sox and is 4-3 with a 3.43 ERA. Price was scheduled to appear in the All-Star Game but skipped it due to a “turf toe” injury. In his last start, he gave up Derek Jeter‘s 3000th hit.
