It's time to say goodbye to Fenway Park for 2015.

The Red Sox will kick off their last series in Fenway Park this season as they send Rich Hill to the mound against the Baltimore Orioles.

BALTIMORE ORIOLES BOSTON RED SOX
Nolan Reimold - CF Mookie Betts - RF
Manny Machado - 3B Dustin Pedroia - 2B
Chris Davis - 1B Xander Bogaerts - SS
Steve Pearce - LF David Ortiz - DH
Jonathan Schoop - 2B Travis Shaw - 1B
Caleb Joseph - C Deven Marrero - 3B
J.J. Hardy - SS Brock Holt - LF
Christian Walker - DH Sandy Leon - C
Dariel Alvarez - RF Jackie Bradley - CF
Kevin Gausman - RHP Rich Hill - LHP

Rich Hill is two starts and twenty strikeouts into his season, with likely one more outing to go after this one. When Hill quickly gave up three runs in the second last time around, it seemed like he was ready to fall right on back to Earth, but he finished with five more scoreless innings after that, holding on long enough for the Red Sox to get him the W.

Will it continue tonight? Logic says no, at least not to this degree, but the magic of Rich Hill doesn't much care for logic.

First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. ET with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
