After winning 15-5 last night, the Boston Red Sox look to get out the brooms tonight and go for the sweep in the finale of a three-game set with the Miami Marlins at Historic Fenway Park.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Marlins television market, you can catch the game on Fox Sports Florida. And if you don't live in either market you are in luck as the MLB Network will have coverage of the game as well (not in Red Sox or Marlins television markets. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.
Daisuke Matsuzaka looks for better results in his third start since returning from Tommy John surgery. In his previous two starts, Dice-K is 0-2 with a 5.73 ERA. Tonight marks his first ever start against the Marlins.
Carlos Zambrano looks to end the Marlins slide in his 14th start of the season. In his previous 13 starts, El Toro is 4-5 with a 3.92 ERA. He made one start against the Red Sox last season as a member of the Cubs and picked up a no decision after allowing three earned runs in six innings of work on May 21, 2011. That start was his only one at Fenway Park. Overall in his career, he's made two starts against the local nine and had no record with a 5.91 ERA (7 ER/10.2 IP).
