The Red Sox (30-14) look to pick up where they left off against the Orioles (13-30) tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN), one night after David Price’s complete game gem.

About tonight’s game: It’s a matchup of disappointing hurlers, as Drew Pomeranz (1-1, 5.47 ERA) faces down Alex Cobb (0-5, 7.06 ERA) in what could easily turn into a dinger party. The struggling Jackie Bradley Jr. gets his second straight start, meaning Mitch Moreland rides the pine again.

About last night’s game: Price did the damn thing and J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts both went yard again in the 6-2 Sox win. Read Matt’s recap here.

Forecast: 50 degrees and partially cloudy.

Today’s reading: Our own Michelle Berth dives into the catcher situation and finds Christian Vazquez... lacking. Read it here.
