After taking 2-of-3 in Baltimore over the weekend, the Boston Red Sox will finish their seven-game road trip with a four-game set against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.
Tonight's game will start at 7:05 p.m. and will be shown on NESN in the Red Sox television market. The game will be shown on STO (SportsTime Ohio) in the Indians television market. If you can't catch the television broadcast, you can always listen to the game on the 2010 Red Sox radio network.
The question everyone wants to know is which Daisuke Matsuzaka will show up. Will it be the dominating one or will it be the one that struggles? In his seven starts this season, Dice-K is 4-2 with a 5.49 ERA. He's made three career starts against the Indians and is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA. He's made one start at Progressive Field back in 2007 and picked up the win after allowing no runs over seven innings.
Fausto Carmona makes his 12th start for new Indians skipper Manny Acta. In his previous 11 starts, he is 4-4 with a 3.53 ERA. He's made five appearances (three starts) against the Red Sox in his career and sports 1-2 record with a 5.94 ERA.
