After winning yesterday, the Boston Red Sox look to salvage a split this afternoon in the finale of a four-game set with the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Orioles television market, you can catch the game on MASN. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Jon Lester hopes to turn things around for himself in his 15th start of 2013. In his previous 14 starts, Lester is 6-2 with a 4.12 ERA. He has not faced the Orioles this year and 0-1 with a 4.26 ERA in three starts in 2012. He's made 21 career starts against the O's and is 14-1 with a 2.63 ERA. 10 of those starts have come at Camden Yards where he is 7-0 with a 2.52 ERA. Miguel Gonzalez makes his 12th start of 2013 for the Birds. In his previous 11 starts, Gonzalez is 4-2 with a 3.71 ERA. He has not faced the Red Sox this season and his three career appearances (two starts) against them came in 2012. In those three appearances (two starts), Gonzalez was 2-0 with a 2.76 ERA.
