After losing two-of-three against the Baltimore Orioles, the Boston Red Sox will finish up the home part of their 2012 schedule tonight starting with the first-game of a two-game set with the Tampa Bay Rays 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 Rays television market, you can catch the game on Sun Sports. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to it on the Red Sox radio network.

For the final time this season, Clay Buchholz will toe the Fenway Park rubber as he makes his 28th start of 2012. In his previous 27 starts, Buchholz is 11-6 with a 4.16 ERA. He's made five starts against the Rays this season and is 1-2 with a 3.62 ERA. Buchholz has made 13 career starts against them and is 5-4 with a 2.52 ERA. Five of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 2-1 with a 2.59 ERA.

David Price looks to keep the Rays alive in the playoff race in his 30th start of the season. In his previous 29 starts, Price is 18-5 with a 2.58 ERA. He's made four starts against the local nine this season and is 1-1 with a 3.28 ERA. Price has made 14 career starts against the Red Sox and is 7-4 with a 3.19 ERA. Six of those starts have come at the Fens where he is 3-1 with a 2.27 ERA.
