After splitting a day/night doubleheader on Saturday, the Boston Red Sox look to take the series this afternoon in the rubber game of a three-game set with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at historic Fenway Park.
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 Angels television market, you can catch the game on Fox Sports West. If you don't live in either market you're in luck as TBS will have coverage of the game (outside of Red Sox and Angels television markets). And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network.
The British Columbia native Ryan Dempster makes his 13th start of 2013. In his previous 12 starts, Dempster is 3-6 with a 4.39 ERA. All three of his career starts against the Halos came in 2012 as a member of the Texas Rangers when he went 0-2 with an 11.20 ERA (17 ER/13.2 IP).
Kentucky native Joe Blanton toes the slab for the 13th time in 2013 as well. In his previous 12 starts, Blanton is 1-9 with a 5.53 ERA. He took the loss against the Red Sox in his only start of 2012 as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies after allowing seven runs (six earned) in 4.1 innings of work.
