8 a.m. ET: For the first time since the 2007 World Series, the Colorado Rockies will take the field at Fenway Park on Tuesday. The Red Sox have met the Rockies just once since sweeping them to win their most recent championship — a three-game series at Coors Field in 2010 — and outside of two-time All-Star Troy Tulowitzki and longtime Minnesota Twin Michael Cuddyer, much of the Colorado roster will likely be unfamiliar to casual Red Sox fans. The Fenway Faithful will not have a chance to see Tulowitzki, who is out with a broken rib, but they will become acquainted with Carlos Gonzalez — the other half of the Rockies’ formidable 3-4 punch in the middle of the order. Gonzalez leads the National League with 21 home runs and ranks fourth in RBIs with 57. Starting for the Rockies on the mound will be 26-year-old Juan Nicasio (4-3, 4.78 ERA), who comes in searching for his first win since May 19. Boston counters with Ryan Dempster (4-8, 4.23 ERA). Dempster has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last five starts but has picked up just two wins (2-3) over that span. The action gets started at 7:10 p.m., but tune in to NESN’s pregame coverage beginning at 6 p.m. And, of course, be sure to check back here throughout the day for all your baseball news and notes leading up to first pitch.
