On the mound, the Red Sox will have Rick Porcello. He's more or less been the eye in the storm that is the Red Sox rotation. Hopefully in a park as friendly as Oakland's, Porcello's early-season home run problems will stay away as they have in his last couple games, letting him establish a legitimate run of success.
First pitch is at 10:05 p.m. ET with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
