Welcome back, Brock! Now please save us...

The Red Sox started the season as one of the most impressive lineups in baseball, but they just haven't been able to get out of the gates in these last few games, with the slump reaching what pretty much has to be rock bottom Tuesday when they were one-hit over 10 innings by Drew Smyly and the Rays.

Yes, I realize I just invited a no-hitter by saying that. No it's not going to happen. Probably.

Who's pitching tonight again? Chris Archer? Hm...

You know what, you've all seen this lineup before. Don't need any commentary from me. I've got things to do. Like finding salt to throw over my shoulder, wood to knock on, and perhaps a goat to sacrifice to keep this from happening. I will not be responsible for a Chris Archer no-hitter, so help me...

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