After falling in extra innings yesterday, the Boston Red Sox look to avoid being swept this afternoon in the finale of a three-game set with the Baltimore Orioles at historic Fenway Park.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and 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. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.

Felix Doubront steps to the hill for the 28th time in 2012. In his previous 27 starts, Doubront is 11-9 with a 5.08 ERA. He took the loss in his only start against the O's this season after allowing two runs in six innings of work back on May 22nd. Doubront has made four career appearances (one start) against the Orioles and is 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA (4 ER/9 IP). Two of those appearances have come at the Fens where he hasn't allowed a run in two innings of work.

Chris Tillman looks to keep the Orioles rolling in his 13th start of 2012. In his previous 12 starts, Tillman is 8-2 with a 3.22 ERA. He picked up a no decision in his only start of the season against the Red Sox after allowing three runs in 4.2 innings back on August 16th. Tillman has made three career starts against the Red Sox and is 0-1 with a 5.73 ERA.
