July 27

Nathan Eovaldi will look to put his prior struggles behind him Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox right-hander takes the ball against the Cleveland Guardians at Fenway Park.

Eovaldi, who pitched less than three innings in Boston’s one-sided defeat against the Toronto Blue Jays five days ago, will start the third game of the Red Sox’s four-game series versus the Guardians.

Jarren Duran returns to the leadoff spot and will play center field, while J.D. Martinez will start at designated hitter for the second consecutive night.

Rafael Devers remains on the injured list, with Bobby Dalbec replacing him at third base while batting seventh. Franchy Cordero will start at first base and bat sixth.

Cal Quantrill will get the start for the Guardians, who tied the series at one game apiece with Tuesday’s win in Boston.

You can watch Wednesday night’s game with NESN 360. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET after an hour of pregame coverage on NESN.
