The Orioles are playing a doubleheader of sorts today, both against the Boston Red Sox. The first game is at 1:05 and is being broadcast in every way imaginable. For TV, it'll be on MASN, NESN, and MLB.tv. On radio you can tune in to WBAL 1090 in the Baltimore area or Gameday Audio.
The second game tonight is being played at 7:05 at the spring home of the Red Sox, and will likely have very few every day names in the lineup. That game will only be broadcast on WEEI in Boston, so if you aren't in the Boston area or don't have Gameday Audio, you'll be out of luck.
Here are the lineups for today's day game. The pitchers are Bud Norris for the Orioles and young Henry Owens for the Red Sox.

The Red Sox got some heat from the Miami Marlins earlier this week when they didn't play the four required regulars in their lineup. First glance it looks like there are only two regulars starting today for the Red Sox today, Bradley and Middlebrooks. I suppose Mike Carp fits the bill if you squint. I'm not too worried about it, though, because 1) who gives a crap about what players the Red Sox send, and 2) the Orioles will probably be returning the favor tonight.
Let's go O's!
