After a comeback win last night, the Boston Red Sox look for a sweep of the Los Angeles Angels tonight at Fenway Park. A win tonight would make the Red Sox 10-0 against the Angels in 2010.
This evening's game will start at 7:10 p.m. and will be shown on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Angels television market, you can catch the game on FOX Sports West. And if you don't live in either market you're in luck as you can catch the game on the MLB Network. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2010 Red Sox radio network.
