After winning on a walk-off single yesterday, the Boston Red Sox host the Tampa Bay Rays in the second game of a three-game set this afternoon at historic Fenway Park. First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Rays television market, you can catch the game on Sun Sports. And if you don't live in either market, you can catch the game on TBS.  And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Clay Buchholz makes his third start of 2013 this afternoon. In his previous two starts, Buchholz is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA. He made six starts against the Rays in 2012 and was 1-3 with a 3.99 ERA. He's made 14 career starts against them and is 5-5 with a 2.76 ERA. Six of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 2-2 with a 3.13 ERA. Alex Cobb makes his second start of 2013. He picked up the win in his first start after allowing no runs in 7.1 innings of work. He's made three starts against the Red Sox in his career, all coming in 2012, and was 2-1 with a 2.81 ERA. Both of his wins came at the Fens where he is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA (2 ER/10 IP).
