Daniel Bard takes the mound against Tampa's James Shields.
Bard is making his second career start after making the transition from the bullpen. He struggled in his first start, allowing five runs in five innings. There are rumors that Bard could be moved back to the pen and become the Sox closer. Boston's bullpen has been less than stellar in the team's first nine games.
James Shields is already making his third start of the season. He's 1-0 with a 5.54 ERA on this young season.
After being swept in their opening series, the Red Sox have dominated the Rays in the first three games. Boston outscored Tampa Bay 31-11 over the weekend.
The Red Sox have won three games in a row, but they aren't without their problems. They recently lost Jacoby Ellsbury to an injury that could keep him out for two months.
Boston takes the field for the first time since manager Bobby Valentine publicly questioned Kevin Youkilis effort this season.
