After sweeping the Minnesota Twins, the Boston Red Sox head to the south side of the Windy City tonight for the first of a four-game set with the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the White Sox television market, you can catch the game on WGN. If you don't live in either market you're in luck as MLB Network will have coverage of the game outside of the Red Sox and White Sox television markets. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.

Felix Doubront looks to pick up his first win in his fourth start of the 2012 season. In his previous three starts, Doubront has no record with a 3.94 ERA (7 ER/16 IP). Tonight will mark his first ever appearance and start against the South Siders. He's never faced any teams from the AL Central in his career either.

After making MLB history by becoming the 21st pitcher to throw a perfect game in his last start, Philip Humber looks to continue that in his third start of 2012. In his previous two starts, Humber is 1-0 with a 0.63 ERA (1 ER/14.1 IP). Both of his career starts came against the Red Sox in 2011. In those two starts, he was 1-1 with a 5.84 ERA (8 ER/12.1 IP). His lone loss came at U.S. Cellular Field where he allowed four runs in 4.2 innings of work.
