W2W4: Red Sox-Marlins, 7 ET
The back-at-.500 Red Sox tonight kick off a nine-game homestand against the Marlins with Clay Buchholz on the mound.
Buchholz, who is 3-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his last three starts, beat the Marlins in his last outing a week ago in Miami, striking out a career-high nine and surrendering one run in seven innings.
Tonight's game might also see the return of outfielder Cody Ross, who has missed 27 games since fracturing the navicular bone in his left foot on May 18, when he fouled a ball off the foot.
