Tim Hudson will make his season debut for the Braves today after recovering from back surgery over the offseason. There are plenty of other top pitchers scheduled to take to the mound today as well, not least CC Sabathia, Josh Johnson, Zack Greinke, Gio Gonzalez and Johan Santana.
Josh Beckett starts for the Red Sox as they look to make it seven wins in a row. A five-game losing streak at home had left Boston on a 4-10 record before they began a seven-game AL Central road trip.Â They won three straight inÂ Minnesota before heading to Chicago where, despite Jake Peavy’s best efforts yesterday, they’ve taken the first three games of their four-game series. A win today would take Boston over .500 before starting a seemingly friendly six-game homestand against the A’s and Orioles and then three games in Kansas City.
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 in his much-hyped Major League debut yesterday for Washington, but it was Matt Kemp who stole the show yet again with a walk-off home run.Â The Nationals try to avoid the 3-0 series sweep today with Gio Gonzalez on the mound after his six score-less inning perfomance against San Diego last Tuesday.
All of these games are available to watch live via the MLB.TV subscription at MLB.com, while ESPN America has a baseballÂ triple bill.Â The A’s-Orioles game can be watched for free online at MLB.com.
