After getting a 3-1 win last night, the Boston Red Sox look to secure a series win tonight in the second game of a three-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL.

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 Rays television market, you can watch the game on Sun Sports. And if you don't live in either market you're in luck as well as the MLB Network will have coverage of the game. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.

Clay Buchholz returns from the disabled list to make his 15th start of 2012. In his previous 14 starts, Buchholz is 8-2 with a 5.53 ERA. He's made three starts against the Rays this season and is 1-1 with a 4.26 ERA (9 ER/19 IP). He's made 11 career starts against the Rays and is 5-3 with a 2.49 ERA. He's made six starts at the Trop and is 3-2 with a 2.41 ERA.

All-Star David Price gets the ball for the 18th time in 2012. In his previous 17 starts, Price is 11-4 with a 2.82 ERA. He's made two starts against the Red Sox this season and is 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA (4 ER/10 IP). Price has made 12 career starts against the visiting nine and is 6-4 with a 3.22 ERA.
