After going 6-3 on the nine-game road trip, the Boston Red Sox return home for a six-game homestand. Tonight they'll welcome back their former skipper Terry Francona and his Cleveland Indians in the first game of a four-game set at historic Fenway Park. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Indians television market, you can catch the game on SportsTime Ohio and WKYC 3. If you don't live in either market you're in luck as the game will be televised on MLB Network. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Ryan Dempster hits the mound for the 10th time in 2013. In his previous nine starts, Dempster is 2-4 with a 4.27 ERA. He made two starts against the Indians in 2012 as a member of the Texas Rangers and was 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA (2 ER/13 IP). He's made five career appearances (four starts) against the Erie warriors and is 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA. Zach McAllister makes his ninth start of 2013 for the former Red Sox skipper. In his previous eight starts, McAllister is 3-3 with a 2.65 ERA. He took the loss back on April 18th against the local nine after allowing three runs in five innings of work. He's made three career starts against the Red Sox and is 1-2 with a 4.05 ERA. He took the loss in his lone Fenway Park start after allowing four runs in seven innings of work.
