BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox lead the American League at 10-2, and Alex Cora's crew will take that mark into tonight's meeting with the 5-8 Orioles after winning two of three against the Yankees.
"It was a good series," Cora said. "It was a good one, offensively. What Rick did in those conditions, after what happened yesterday, to come in and put up a good professional game, it's good to see."
In case you forgot "what happened yesterday," you can watch the video here:
Eduardo Rodriguez will oppose Chris Tillman on the mound in the first of the four-game set.
Rodriguez made his season-debut Sunday against the Rays and struggled in his first chance after offseason knee surgery. The lefty struck out seven, but gave up three runs and allowed seven men to reach base in his three-and-two-thirds innings.
Rodriguez has faced his former franchise more than any other with 10 starts and a 4.67 ERA.
Tillman's off to a terrible start with an 8.68 ERA after two outings. He hasn't won a game since last May 7th--a stretch of 20 starts. But, the righty's 10-4 with a lifetime ERA just over three against Boston, including a 2.39 mark at the Fens.
First pitch is at 7:10 p.m.
