After going 4-2 on their season opening road trip, the Boston Red Sox return home for a seven-game homestand. They'll start off with the home opener this afternoon against the Baltimore Orioles at historic Fenway Park. The Red Sox pregame show will start on NESN at 12 p.m. First pitch is scheduled for 2:05 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Orioles television market, you can catch the game on MASN. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Clay Buchholz makes his second start of 2013 for the Red Sox. He picked up the win in his first start after allowing one run in seven innings of work on April 3. Buchholz made four starts against the Orioles in 2012 and was 2-0 with a 4.50. He's made 14 career appearances (13 starts) against them and is 7-3 with a 3.64 ERA. Six of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 3-1 with a 2.04 ERA. Wei-Yin Chen makes his second start of 2013 Orioles. He picked up a no decision in his first start after allowing two runs in 5.2 innings of work. All of Chen's three career starts against the Red Sox came in 2012 when he went 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA. Two of those starts came at the Fens where he went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA.
