The Red Sox (22-20), fresh off the sad of managing to lose a game in which they struck out the Rockies (20-21) two dozen times, look go get back on the proverbial horse to cross the metaphorical mountains, because Rockies, you get it. You also understand that because the game is in Boston, it’s at 7:10 p.m.

Eduardo Rodriguez goes for the Red Sox off of his best start of the year last time out against the Mariners, while righty Germán Márquez, who is good, goes for Colorado. Only minor changes to each lineup, with Jackie Bradley Jr. back in center and Christian Váquez behind the plate, with Mitch Moreland moved up to fourth. Colorado’s the same until the eighth and ninth spots, and then who cares? Anyhow losing is bad, winning is better. I like them. They’re fun. Hey, that’s got a nice ring to it.
