10 a.m. ET: The Red Sox have won each of their series so far this season. To continue that streak, they’ll need to come through in the third and final matchup with the Orioles tonight after Baltimore stole one on a wet and wild Wednesday night. Starting for the Red Sox (5-3) will be Alfredo Aceves, one of the more interesting holdovers from last year’s team. While Aceves has become known best for his antics around the team, the righty has also shown he can pitch. Used mostly as a long reliever, Aceves has pined for a starting opportunity, and he’ll get just that — even if it’s a spot appearance — as he takes the hill in place of John Lackey, who is out with an injured bicep. Aceves has not been great so far this year, coming on in relief appearances against the Yankees and Blue Jays and allowing five earned runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings over two games. He’ll need to bring his best stuff to help the Sox spell their bullpen, which was used early and often in Wednesday night’s rain-altered game. Chris Tillman takes the starting duties for the Orioles (4-4). The right-hander posted his best season in the bigs last year, going 9-3 with a 2.93 ERA in 15 starts, but he’s had a rough beginning to this year. He last just 3 2/3 innings against the Twins in his first start, giving up five earned runs and walking four. The action starts here on NESN at 6 p.m., with first pitch ready to go at 7:10.
